Seeing as tonight's the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest - thought I'd focus on this 1967 offering from Catalonia's finest Los Stop. The group tired their luck on a couple of occasions to represent Spain - and on their last attempt in 1970 got pipped at the post by a certain Julio Iglesias.
On to the music then. The A Side gives you "Tres Cosas (Salud, Dinero Y Amor)" which is an archetypal bit of mid 60's euro-pop cheese - great if you like that sort thing - but one that really doesn't do it for me. Which didn't stop it getting to No.1 in the spanish charts - which lead to their attempts to try and represent their country in Eurovision. Partly as a result of that failure lead to the group going their separate ways in the early 70's.
That's pretty muc on this apart from saying - enjoy Eurovision!
