Vaya Con Dios

Was just talking of weddings in the tribute to Cliff Richard (Hanging With Cliff). This is one song that has been sung as a Bridal Special (for many many weddings) in the 70s, 80s and 90s. Sung by Elvis Presley among the string of others including the Tex-Mex singer, Freddy Fender.

I posted a question earlier today about a famous song that shares the name with a Mexican casserole including sausage, shrimp, veggies, rice and chilli. 

Got a lot of correct answers - Jambalaya and some invitations to a meal of it. 

Freddy Fender is possibly best known for this soulful ballads like Before The Next Teardrop Falls.

Another song of his that used to be heavily requested - Wasted Days and Wasted Nights.

Ten years ago, today the world bid Vaya Con Dios to this wonderful entertainer. The phrase meaning Goodbye literally means Going With God.
