Here is a link to a You Tube video of Linda Ronstadt singing Blue Bayou in Spanish:

Sorry for the scratchy sounds-like-it-was-ripped-from-vinyl beginning, but they all seem to start that way.

In my opinion Linda Ronstadt had the second-best voice in modern American music.
Blue Bayou is my favorite Roy Orbison song.
Translated and sung in Spanish, what more could one ask for?

Hola Dan,

Gracias, la canción es muy hermosa. Tengo un disco (vinyl) de Linda Ronstadt se llama Canciones de mí padre.. Aquí está un enlace https://www.google.com/search?q=canciones+de+mis+padres&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

Saludos,

Ricardo

Ricardo: De Nada. Tengo la CD de Canciones de mi Padre tambien.

Great stuff, guys. Thanks! I was totally ignorant of Linda Ronstadt's background...

Growing up, she listened to many types of music, including Mexican music, which was sung by her entire family and was a staple in her childhood.

p.s. For the best female voice, I would go with Karen Carpenter.

Steven: Karen Carpenter did have a good voice, but my Numero Uno is Patsy Cline.

Hola a todos,

I might add that at the top of the link  I posted, Linda Ronstadt is in concert singing the songs from Canciones de mí padre.  Dan, I too love Patsy Cline and you might want to search out Mandy Barnett who is a fantastic vocalist much influenced by Patsy. Karen Carpenter, just wonderful! I have so many favorites it would be difficult to make a short list.

Saludos,

Ricardo

Ricardo: thanks for telling me about Mandy Barnett. Wow, what a voice!

I have the CD of Canciones de mi Padre but frankly, as much as I love Linda Ronstadt, I just can't warm up to that album.

I got to check out Mandy Barnett

¡Aurora! Me alegro a ver ti también.

I love Linda Ronstadt's songs and she has a great voice.

Dan-H24

James: unfortunately she had a great voice. She apparently is suffering from Parkinson's Disease and can no longer sing. A great loss to her and to those of us who loved her voice.
