THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE 1960s THAT NO ONE HAS EVER HEARD
482) Nueva Democracia — “Hey, Hey”
Shimmering sunshine pop from sunny Spain! Mundo & Mr. Toytown tell us that:
After winning the famous La Voz Del Mino radio show contest, they moved to Madrid to play some shows and record a 45 . . . . Once there, they changed their name to Los Posters and released a couple of soft pop Los Angeles styled 45s . . . in 1967. A couple of years later . . . [the band released] one . . . single under the new name Nueva Democracia . . . a name which anticipated [by] nearly seven years [Francisco] Franco’s dictatorship[‘s] end. Released in 1969, “Hey Hey” is a good example of the band’s innocent harmony-pop sound.liner notes to Papagayo!: The Spanish Sunshine Pop & Popsike Collection
