It's funny the things that make you think of people. I was playing with some new software for organizing music, and it flipped to La Bamba. When it hit the 'Yo no soy marinaro' line, I was reminded who taught me the line (which for a little while became a random phrase I would spout at inopportune moments for no particular moment). He passed away earlier this year. As I happen to have a glass here, with some lovely sherry in it, I propose a toast, to old friends, now departed...

I like when songs conjure up memories...even if they are sad. "Yo no soy marinero" for me is pure Kagoshima karaoke box memories for was the only Spanish song offered up in the books.
