To tell the story of his most iconic song, Fernando Villalona He chose three: “I know I lost you” (1984), “Delirous love” (2000) and “Bed and table” (1982).

Regarding “I know that I lost you”, Villalona said during an interview for Listín Diario that he remembers that the time in which that song was recorded was the same in which he met Evelyn Jorge, the mother of his eldest daughter, Paloma Villalona.

“I invited her here to Santo Domingo and she went to see Los Hijos del Rey at a party, it seems that those two glances crossed ‘pam!’ and there I hit it. So, I invited her here, she didn’t know the dimension that I had in my country and at every traffic light that I stopped ‘Fernandito, Fernandito!’ And she went crazy with it because she didn’t know that she was kind of fizzing.”

In the case of “Delirous love”, the merenguero narrated the story very carefullysince this theme was created for Juan Lanfanco, who was responsible for the melody and composition together with Honorio Taveras.

“Then, a lawsuit they had, Honorio sent me the tape because I was at his house … there I fell in love and said ‘Wao!’ And in my mind it happened ‘what envy!’, but really because I heard it done too, but I, and I am perhaps not going to hear very well, like I wanted that song to be heard in a better voice, although Juan Lanfanco was tremendous, “explained Villalona.

“El Mayimbe” assures that he let Honorio Taveras know that the song should have a better interpretation and after the fight between its creators it ended up in his hands. It also became one of the most iconic, since he found it in full swing after living for a year in the United States and returning to his native country.

And lastly in “Bed and Table”, the legendary singer shared the arrangement with July Pie on piano, regarding the recent death of the musician, who he was actually born as Julio Pérez and it was Villalona who nicknamed him with that artistic name.

“I thought why all the instruments sing and the piano doesn’t. The piano was making the normal chords of the tumbao’, from the times of before, and I felt a mambo, a tumbao’ sung and I got into the piano with him and we did it and from there it was that the name of July Pie did so (it transcended)”, he affirmed.
