ENGLISH:

This is the 100th post by Spanish Pop Lyrics! To celebrate here is one of the best known Spanish pop songs of all time.

The original version of this was released by Nacha Pop in 1980, and though it was only moderately successful at the time it is now considered a classic of ‘La Movida’. It also gave its title to the Spanish remake of the TV show ‘Life On Mars’, though strangely enough the song doesn’t get played in the series.

From 1995, this is a surprisingly effective acapella version by Los Rosillo. I think it was part of a project to do acapella versions of Spanish hits from the 80s, but a full album was never released.

In 2000 the US group Gigolo Aunts released a version in English titled ‘The Girl From Yesterday’.

Enrique Iglesias hit number one in Spain with his pop version in 2002.

SPANISH:

¡Este es la entrada 100 de Spanish Pop Lyrics!

La versión original de Nacha Pop fue lanzado en 1980, pero no fue un gran éxito. Ahora la gente piensa que es unas de las canciones mejores de la historia de pop en Castellano.

Desde 1995, este versión acapella de Los Rosillo es muy eficaz. Creo que iban a hacer mas versiones de éxitos españoles de los años 80, pero un álbum nunca fue lanzado.

LA CHICA DE AYER

Un dia cualquiera 
no sabes que hora es,
Te acuestas a mi lado 
sin saber por qué.
Las calles mojadas 
te han visto crecer
Y tu en tu corazón 
estás llorando otra vez. 

Me asomo a la ventana 
eres la chica de ayer,
Jugando con las flores en mi jardin.
Demasiado tarde para comprender,
Chica vete a tu casa, no podemos jugar.

La luz de la mañana 
entra a la habitación,
Tu cabellos dorados parecen el sol.
Luego por la noche al Penta a escuchar
Canciones que consiguen 
que te pueda amar. 

Me asomo a la ventana 
eres la chica de ayer
Demasiado tarde para comprender.
Mi cabeza da vueltas persiguiéndote
Mi cabeza da vueltas persiguiéndote
YESTERDAY’S GIRL

An ordinary day, 
you don't know what time it is
You lie down next to me
without knowing why
The wet streets 
have watched you growing up
And in your heart 
you’re crying again

I stick my head out of the window
You’re yesterday’s girl
Playing with the flowers in my garden
Too late to understand
Go home girl, we can't play

The morning light
shines into the room
Your golden hair looks like the sun
Later that night I go to Penta to listen
to songs that will make me 
fall in love with you

I stick my head out of the window
You’re yesterday’s girl
Too late to understand
My head is spinning, chasing you
My head is spinning, chasing you
NB ‘Penta’ is a references to ‘El Pentagrama’, a famous bar in Madrid.
