House of factoids, JuanGa division

In Forbes magazine, of all places, there was a brief piece about the IRS tax troubles of Juan Gabriel, evidently stemming from royalties earned in the United States way back in 1971 for No Tengo Dinero. I found the original letras and the Kumbia Kings letras. It was the first track on his first album, and his first hit. Anyhow, this explains why he dueted with the Kumbia Kings on their version, which has the irresistible accordion riff. Poor guy; on Univision we've been seeing his stage fall over and over again lately.
