Take physic, pomp

The Friday OT: Flans; Bazar

Mexico’s answer to Bananarama (UK) or maybe The Go-Gos (USA), here’s Flans (great name) with their all-time classic hit, “Bazar”:

According to Wikipedia in English

Flans is an all-female Mexican group, which enjoyed popularity
from the mid-1980s to the early 1990s. Its members were the singers
Ivonne Margarita Guevara García, Ilse María Olivo Schweinfurth and Irma
Angélica Hernández Ochoa. They were generally known as Ivonne, Ilse, and Mimí.

…though unsurprisingly you get a lot more info on the trio at the Wiki Spanish language link, including how the group’s going today (and yes, they’re still milking their stardom period by touring, mostly Mexico). As for the song, a reasonable translation of the chorus is:

I fell in love with you in a shopping mall, in between pictures and magazines, t-shirts records and jeans.
