Santos, Daniel
Daniel Santos was born on 5 February 1916 of a poor family in Santurce, Puerto Rico. His grammar school studies were interrupted by the family need for income, partly satisfied by Daniel’s work as a shoe shine boy after completing only the third year of school. He later returned to school and worked very hard; learning English and singing in the school choir.

By the age of 14 , Santos left his home to his own little rented room to lead an independent life. One fateful day while bathing, his singing was overheard by a neighbor who happened to be a member of a band called Trío Lírico. He was offered a job singing with the band for a one dollar for each appearance. Thus began Santos’ professional career. In 1938, he met the legendary Pedro Flores in New York City while he sang one of Don Pedro’s songs: “Amor perdido”, at the Cuban Casino. Don Pedro liked the way he sang and asked Santos to audition with his own band, the Flores Quartet. Again, Don Pedro liked what he heard and offered him a job.

He recorded many of the songs that him famous, with the Pedro Flores Quartet. Among them: “Tú serás mía”, “Irresistible”, “Esperanza inútil”, “Perdón”, “Mayoral”, “Venganza”, “Amor”, “Olga”, “Yo no sé nada”, “Hay que saber perder”, “La número 100”, “Bella mujer”, “Margie”, “Prisionero del mar”, “El último adiós”, Borracho no vale, “Bella mujer”, and “Guaracha amorosa” (glossary: guaracha).

    Please I don't Spanish but need the song by Daniel Santos called I think in English 'Already You See Patricia' or Patricia. It's on 'YOU TUBE' but I can't read the words I need to to get a subcription to get a translation into English and it won't play straight through on my computer system. Can someone PLEASE hel[p me with this? I read a lot about Patricia 'Satira' Schmdt who shot and killed John Lester 'Jack' Mee 1947 off the Havana Cuba coast in view of the Marrow Castle in self defense-given 15 year prison term but pardoned 18 months later by out going Cuban president Any help with this will be appreiciated.

    My nana had the Epoca de Oro de Daniel Santos...we would hear it in her 1983 Toyota Camry...we learned all of the words, but didn't know what we were saying...and I know the words to this day..."Crei" and so many others that aren't the top tracks here.
