Los Del Mar – Macarena
The original version of 'Macarena' first appeared on Los Del Rio's 1993 album A Mi Me Gusta. The 1995 cover version by studio group Los Del Mar charted simultaneously with Los Del Rio's hit remix of the song in the UK, France, Belgium, Australia, and New Zealand. Remarkably, in Canada, Los Del Mar's recording even eclipsed the Los Del Rio version in sales, peaking at number 1 in July 1995 - a year prior to the international dance craze caused by Los Del Rio's famous music video.
While Los Del Mar is all but forgotten, their remake of 'Macarena' can be found on many compilation albums, as they were one of the best-selling copycats of the 1990s.
