SHELLY Y NUEVA GENERACIÓN

Here I am again, today I'm gonna tell you about SHELLY Y NUEVA GENERACIÓN (Shelly and new generation), a band which lasted very little time, just eight months.

This band appeared under the name Los Driblings, but they changed their name to Shelly y Nueva Generación when they invited a 19 years old girl from Venezuela (who was living in Madrid) to join them and be their singer.

They only published three singles. The first one appeared in 1968 and it contained two great songs which were sung in English language: "Mr train, hurry up!" and "I'm a poor girl". Have a listen!

                                                      "Mr train, hurry up!"


"I'm a poor girl"


Later that year they published their second single: "La mujer diablo" ("The devil woman") / "I'm just a fool", this last song appearing in a film in 1969 ("1, 2, 3, al escondite inglés" - "1, 2, 3, hide-and-seek") featuring the band singing the song in the Santiago Bernabeu football stadium.

    "I'm just a fool"
        



Their last single appeared in 1969 and it contained two songs in Spanish language: "Vestido azul" / "No puedo olvidarte chico". 

"Vestido azul" - "Blue dress"



And here you have the lyrics, both in Spanish and in English:


VESTIDO AZUL

Estaba paseando, estaba sola.
Con el vestido nuevo que llevo ahora.
Más nadie me miraba y estaba triste.
La niña más feúcha ellos hacían sentirme.
Andaba por la calle sin rumbo fijo.
De pronto entre la gente surgió aquel chico.
Dijo que esta linda con mi vestido.
Vestido azul, del color que tiene el mar.
Vestido azul, en un día primaveral.
Hablamos mucho tiempo de nuestras cosas
pasaron enseguida algunas horas
Pronto llegó el momento de despedirnos

y solo con mirarlo supe que era mío

De todos los colores es el más lindo.
Y gracias al azul conocí a mi chico

La rueda de la suerte me dio un vestido.
Vestido azul, del color que tiene el mar.
Vestido azul, en un día primaveral.
Estaba paseando, estaba sola.
Con el vestido nuevo que llevo ahora.
Más nadie me miraba y estaba triste.
La niña más feúcha ellos hacían sentirme.
Andaba por la calle sin rumbo fijo.
De pronto entre la gente surgió aquel chico.
Dijo que esta linda con mi vestido.
Vestido azul, del color que tiene el mar.
Vestido azul, en un día primaveral.
Vestido azul, del color que tiene el mar.
Vestido azul, en un día primaveral.
Vestido azul, del color que tiene el mar.
Vestido azul, en un día primaveral.

BLUE DRESS

I was having a walk, I was alone
Wearing the new dress I'm wearing now
But nobody looked at me and I was sad
The ugliest girl they made me feel.

I was wandering the streets.
Suddenly that boy appeared among the crowd
He told me I looked pretty in my dress.
Blue dress, like the colour of the sea.
 Blue dress, in a spring day.
We spoke a lot of time about our things

Some hours quickly passed.
Soon the moment to say goodbye arrived
And only by looking at him I knew he was mine.
Of all the colours it's the nicest.
And thanks to the blue colour I met my boy
The fortune wheel gave me a dress
 Blue dress, like the colour of the sea.
 Blue dress in a spring day
I was having a walk, I was alone
Wearing the new dress I'm wearing now
But nobody looked at me and I was sad
The ugliest girl they made me feel.

I was wandering the streets.
Suddenly it appeared that boy in the crowd
He said I looked pretty in my dress.
Blue dress, like the colour of the sea.
 Blue dress, in a spring day.
Blue dress, like the colour of the sea.
 Blue dress, in a spring day
Blue dress, like the colour of the sea.
 Blue dress, in a spring day

"No puedo olvidarte chico" - "I can't forget you boy"



And the lyrics:

NO PUEDO OLVIDARTE CHICO

Siento venir un gran dolor
Al pensar en tu amor
No soy feliz porque te vas
Y no me recordarás
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico,
No!!, te quieroooo.
Desde ayer no sé qué hacer
 Solo te veo a ti
Nada es igual todo va mal

Las cosas están contra mí.
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico
No!!, te quieroooo.
Dame otra oportunidad
Que distintas las cosas serán.
Si no es así, voy a morir
Ya no resisto más
Termina ya, no juegues más
Dime que volverás.
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico
No!!, te quieroooo.
Dame otra oportunidad
Que distintas las cosas serán.
Siento venir un gran dolor
Al pensar en tu amor
No soy feliz porque te vas
Y no me recordarás.
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico
No puedo olvidarte chico
Yeah baby, no puedo!!
I CAN'T FORGET YOU BOY

I feel a big pain coming
When I think about your love
I'm not happy cause you're leaving
And you won't remember me.
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
No!! I love youuuu.
Since yesterday I don't know what to do
I can only see you
Nothing is the same, everything goes wrong
Things have turned against me
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
No!! I love youuuu.
Give me another chance
And things will be different.
If it's not like that i will die
I can't stand it anymore
End it now, don't play anymore
Tell me you will be back.
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
No!! I love youuuu.
Give me another chance
And things will be different
I feel a big pain coming
When I think about your love
I'm not happy cause you're leaving
And you won't remember me.
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
I can't forget you boy
Yeah baby, I can't!!





They were one of the greatest bands of the time, even though they didn't lasted long. Til this day they are remembered and their singles are very valued in the record market.

Hope you like them and see you in the next post!!
