Song of the Day –

Today’s Song of the Day is a 1968 cover of the Rolling Stones Jumpin’ Jack Flash sung in Spanish by the Mexican rock group Los Yaki – Juan Saltarin.  As was common in the 60s, many spanish groups covered the rock hits of the day – Los Yaki covered a number of British invasion hits, including this quite good version of Jumpin Jack Flash.

This clip is from the 1968 movie Thunder Alley (starring Annette Funicello and Fabian, among others).  While its quite the disco scene, I don’t think the band (or this song) appeared in the movie.
