“Spanish Eyes” is a beautiful song about falling in love. The narrator travels to Spain and falls in love with the prettiest woman he’s ever seen. Ultimately, the two can’t stay together which creates a somber and moving narrative of loss after love. Engelbert Humperdinck’s version was so highly regarded that it appeared on his Greatest Hits album.

Quando, Quando, Quando
Humperdinck’s 1968 version of “Quando, Quando, Quando” brought the song into popularity. That same year there were two additional versions released by Cliff Richard and Mar Ansoult, but it was Humperdinck’s version that hit number 40 on the UK single charts! You can find “Quando, Quando, Quando” on the album A Man Without Love.

The Last Waltz
Appearing on Humperdinck’s debut album, “The Last Waltz” was another hyper-successful single alongside “Release Me.” Like the aforementioned song, “The Last Waltz” also hit number one on the UK Singles Charts upon release and number 25 on the US charts. The song centers around the love story between two people: their meeting and first dance, and then the ultimate final dance of their relationship. It’s sure to be a tear-jerker come February 9th.
