Why i love you Carlos "La Mona" Jimenez, identical to him, but who only changed "Con" with "Por" in the title. The rest was completely the same.
Last February, a singer from Cordoban was called to testify after a year and a half of training, after which it was possible to prove that in 1983 Chema Puron recorded the same song with a group of Mocedades and registered it the next year. They also managed to determine that in 1986 the couple La Mona (Juana Delseri) and one of their musicians, Daniel Franco, recorded a song called Why i love you,

"
In addition, Nercellas considered: "Jimenez did not do this, not wanting it to be a maneuver"Consults horn In a notification to the quartet, he said: “He was already notified that he was being persecuted; he intended to say that this is an economic issue, but not an economic one, but a criminal one. it didn't take musical mastery".
