Spanish Group Mecano perform in Montreal for The Telethon of Stars :  a benefit event for sick children<br />
<br />
Mecano was a Spanish pop band whose debut coincided with La Movida Madrile??a, a sociocultural movement that occurred in Spain during the 1980s. Although Spanish music critics do not consider the band one of the most representative ensembles of the aforementioned cultural wave,[1] Mecano found more commercial success in the '80s and the early '90s, both in its native country and Latin America, France, and Italy with 25 million worldwide sales.[citation needed]. Most of the lyrics were written by one of the Cano brothers from a male perspective, and were mainly sung by Ana Torroja in a melodic, childlike voice while preserving that male perspective, which gave the group its distinctive, playful and sexually ambiguous style. Torroja's only lyricial contribution were the lyrics to the chorus of "Mosquito".
