"Macarena" is a Spanish dance song by Los del Río about a woman of the same name. Appearing on the 1994 album A mí me gusta, it was an international hit between 1995 and 1996, and continues to have a cult following. One of the most iconic of 1990s dance music, it was ranked the "#1 Greatest One-Hit Wonder of all Time" by VH1 in 2002. The lyrics are completely original, but the music it is based on has been accused of plagiarism, coming from the song "Tengo una pena" (I have a sorrow, 1975) from the Spanish band "Desmadre 75", at the same time based on a popular children's song known as "Trabajando en las minas de pan duro" (Working in the hard bread mines).
