My grandma Lupe loves to listen to "Nostalgia", a very nice song by Dyango from 1976. Its lyrics are a bit sad because they talk about feelings like nostalgia, abandonment, anguish and loneliness because of a broken heart. With this great song, Dyango conquered the Spanish market of the romantic ballad and, years later, he represented this country at the OTI Festival in 1980.
