I have another reggae gem for you guys today. I know that I probably sound like I’m complaining already, but you don’t know how much it bothers me that I can’t find chart information for many of these awesome classics. If there is a national database of some kind, I’m sure they’d charge me a bunch of money to access it. I think what I’ll start doing is sharing number of Shazams instead. It’s not chart information, but at least it may (or may not) show song’s popularity. Reggae legend Phyllis Dillon released her interpretation of a song called “Perfidia” in 1972. As my grandpa used to say with any reggae he really liked, “the song is sweet man!” 😀 Her song has been Shazam’d 28,174 times to-date. It is one of my most favorite so song from Phyllis. If I’m not mistaken, “Perfidia” comes from the Spanish word “Perfidy,” which means someone or something that cannot be trusted. It was written by Alberto Domínguez, and first recorded by a very famous musician named Xavier Cugat in 1939. The song instantly became a huge hit. Linda Ronstadt also did a beautiful version of the song as well; but I never heard her sing it in English tho.
