Spanish pop singer Massiel (1947) won the Eurovision Song Contest 1968 with the song La, la, la, beating Cliff Richard's Congratulations. She also appeared in a dozen of films and TV-series.

Maasiel was born as Maria de los Angeles Felisa Santamaria Espinosa in Madrid, Spain in 1947. Her father, Emilio Santamaria, was an artistic manager. At a young age she decided to become a singer, actress and a songwriter. Her first recordings were released in 1966: Di que no (Say it is not) and Rufo el pescador, (Rufus the Fisherman). That year, she acted in the musical film Vestida de novia/Wedding Dress (1966, Ana Mariscal). The song Rosas en el mar/Roses in the sea, written by her friend Luis Eduardo Aute in 1967, established her as a singer in Spain and Latin America. In 1968, Massiel was asked to replace singer-songwriter Joan Manuel Serrat as Spain's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest. Her song, entitled La, la, la, was written by Ramon Arcusa and Manuel de la Calva. The original representative refused to perform unless he could sing in Catalan instead of Spanish. Nine days before the contest Massiel was on tour in Mexico. She returned to Spain, learned the song and recorded it in five languages. On 6 April 1968 in the Royal Albert Hall in London she surprisingly beat the favourite, Cliff Richard with Congratulations, by a point and won the contest. Montse Fernandez Vila, the director of the documentary called 1968: I lived the Spanish May, has accused Spain's television company TVE of bribing judges on the orders of General Franco, who was determined to claim Eurovision glory for his own country. According to Vila, Franco sent corrupt TV executives across Europe to buy goodwill in the run-up to the contest. Vila, told the Spanish media news website "It's in the public domain that Television Espanola executives travelled around Europe buying series that would never be broadcast and signing concert contracts with odd, unknown groups and singers. These contracts were translated into votes."

Massiel regularly appeared in such light entertainment films as Dias de viejo color (1968, Pedro Olea) and Cantando a la Vida (1969, Angelino Fons). The latter profiled a winner of a European Song festival who suddenly disappeared. Massiel sang the entire soundtrack to the film, which raked in 9,020,397 pesetas at the box office. Some years later Massiel performed dramatic roles in theatrical productions like A los hombres futuros, yo Bertolt Brecht (1972), Corridos de la revolucion: Mexico 1910 (1976) and Antonio and Cleopatra in the early 1980s. Later films include Viva/muera Don Juan Tenorio (1977, Tomas Aznar) with Angela Molina, and La vida alegre (1987, Fernando Colomo). Massiel married her long-time boyfriend Vinny Cremonty, an Italian film star. They lived in Italy for four years before moving to Spain. After retiring to raise her first son, Aitor Carlos Sayas, Massiel returned in 1981 with a brand new sound and a new record label, Hispavox. Her label debut, Tiempos Dificiles, was a major comeback in Spain where songs like El Amor and Hello America were very popular. Massiel would finish her pop comeback in 1983 with her career-defining record, Corazon De Hierro. Not only was this album successful in her native country, but it was also her reconciliation with Latin America. The song Brindaremos Por El was a massive hit worldwide and topped the charts in many countries. In many ways, Massiel came back to the continent that loved her so throughout the 1960’s.

From 1966 to 1998, Massiel recorded songs of different genres for five record companies: Zafiro, Polygram, Hispavox, Bat Discos and Emasstor. Her discography includes around 50 records released as EPs, singles, LPs, CDs and compilations. In 1997 she released an album covering the music of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, in Spanish, called Baladas Y Canciones De Bertolt Brecht. Massiel re-recorded her Eurovision winner La, la, la in 1997, with a 'hip-hop' beat, background singers, whistling and Spanish percussion. In 2001 Massiel fell out of the window of her second-floor flat while "trying to close the shutters" (although many speculate she fell while drunk) and was hospitalized for a short period afterwards. In 2005 she appeared on the 50th Anniversary special of the Eurovision Song Contest and sang the song that made her internationally famous. In 2007 she became a member of the Mission Eurovision jury, a show to select the Spanish song for the Eurovision Song Contest 2007. She made a short comeback to music on this show, singing Busco un hombre, a song competing to be Spain's entry but to be sung by another singer. It had been 11 years since Massiel had been on stage. Massiel has been married three times. Her husbands were Luis Recatero (1969-1970), Carlos Zayas (1974-1981) and Pablo Lizcano (1985- 1988).

Someone Saved My Life Tonight III

Someone Saved My Life Tonight III

Collage with acrylic on paper 41x61 cm (2008) - "And someone saved my life tonight, sugar bear. You almost had your hooks in me, didn't you dear. You nearly had me roped and tied, altar-bound, hypnotised, sweet freedom whispered in my ear, you're a butterfly... and butterflies are free to fly, fly away, high away bye bye...." - Inspired on "Someone saved My life Tonight" by Captain Fantastic Elton John and the Brown Dirt Cowboy Bernie Taupin.
Music and lyrics by Elton John and Bernie Taupin
When I think of those East End lights, muggy nights
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it's one more beer and I don't hear you anymore
We've all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor

And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied
Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye

I never realised the passing hours of evening showers
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
It's four o'clock in the morning
Damn it listen to me good
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive

And I would have walked head on into the deep end of the river
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your H.P. demands forever
They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Someone saved my life tonight
So save your strength and run the field you play alone

The Collected Plays of Neil Simon, Vol. 4

Since 1960, a Broadway season without a Neil Simon play has been a rare one. For more than thirty years, Simon's wry and astute observations on life, love, and the human condition have been making audiences laugh uproariously even as his beautifully realized characters touch their hearts. These five plays, including the Pulitzer- and Tony-award-winning Lost in Yonkers, show Simon at the pinnacle of his extraordinary career.
