[tps_title]3. Los Del Rio: The Macarena[/tps_title]
Macarena is quite a popular name in Spain. Visit the rest of the world, and it’s considered unique. My cousin’s name is Macarena and we would once talk about songs with names of people we know. She wished that someone would just write about her. Boy, she certainly regrets making that wish now! For a time, we couldn’t even say her name without someone singing out loud, “Eeeeeeeh, Macarena!” The song also came with a unique dance move. Needless to say, the clamor died and radio stations stopped playing this hit. And to my cousin’s relief, everyone stopped teasing her about it. If there’s one thing I know for sure, she ain’t naming her daughter Macarena.
