American Top 40 Flashback - Freddy Fender


OK, I have to admit that when this song hit the airwaves in the spring of 1975, my 15-year old self hated it.  In fact, it was one of those songs that became an "instant channel-changer" for me.

But with age sometimes comes wisdom, and lo these many years later, I think this is a great song - as was the single that immediately followed it, "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights."

The late Freddy Fender, the former Baldemar Huerta, with "Before the Next Teardrop Falls" - the #1 song in the land, this week in 1975.
