Livin' la Vida Loca by Ricky Martin was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, July 17, 1999 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The song finds Martin getting wild and crazy with a seductive woman who makes him forget his troubles and live for the moment. It was written by Desmond Child and Robi Rosa. Martin's first mainstream hit, this song took off after his triumphant performance of "Cup Of Life" at the 1999 Grammy Awards. He got a lot of media attention and expanded his fan base to an English speaking audience eager for songs they would Zumba to 10 years later. Frank Sinatra died on May 14, 1998, which was around the time this song was conceived. Desmond Child tells us that Sinatra's music was a strong influence on this song. Martin did record a version with Spanish lyrics that was included on US copies of the album. The title was still "Livin' La Vida Loca."
