Maria Elena

"Maria Elena" is a popular song. The Spanish words and music were written by Lorenzo Barcelata, the English words by Bob Russell.

The song was a hit for the Jimmy Dorsey orchestra. The recording was made on March 19, 1941 by Decca Records as catalog number 3698. The flip side was "Green Eyes." The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on May 16, 1941 and lasted 17 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1 on June 14, 1941. Since "Green Eyes" was also a #1 hit, this was a major double-sided hit recording.

In the same year, the Wayne King Orchestra also had a #2 hit with "Maria Elena".Another version was recorded in 1958 and released in The United States in 1962 by Natalico and Antenor Lima, better known as Los Indios Tabajaras. This popular revival hit #6 pop, #3 easy listening in 1963.This version can be found currently on Youtube.com
