    'La Bamba' by Richie Valens, is an adaption of a much earlier Mexican Song.
    It can by done fast, (Richie Valens, Los Lobos etc.), or it can be sung very slow,
    as in The Sandpipers beautiful version from 1966. Their version is in both
    English and Spanish. Their voices are very beautiful, as are the backing
    Female vocals, which sound like Angels joining in. I discovered their version
    in 2018. At first I could not believe that it was the same Song, that Richie Valens
    sang - but it is the same Song. The lyrics are - sometimes - different, but it really
    is 'La Bamba'...(The earliest version was recorded in 1939).

    'La Bamba' -- The Sandpipers -- (1966)

    I was ambitious, though I didn’t know exactly what I was shooting for. Now I think it’s one of the most useless questions an adult can ask a child – What do you want to be when you grow up? As if growing up is finite. As if at some point you become something and that’s the end.
