MUY BIEN (MY FRIEND) * THE CLARENDONIANS * SKA BEAT 219 * UK
I often wonder if the song Bei Mir Bist Du Schön was the catalyst for this song, probably not. The use of the Spanish language was not uncommon in Reggae Uno-Dos for example. The Spanish 'muy bien' translates to 'very good', and the song, far from being a celebration of a friendship, is a put down. A Duke Reid 'Treasure Isle' production JA.
