Review

The protagonist is missing someone really badly.  He compares himself without his girlfriend to many, many absurd situations.

 

It's clearly from the Spain of the 80s as there's views that might be a little un-PC today.  In his list of "bad situations" he includes, among others; a civil wedding and possible homophobic references.

It is a sad song, as the singer morosely drones on about how he feel strange and lost without his love.

Saying that there is a marvelous number of great nouns, adjectives and verbs in this song.

 

Joaquin is pictured chain smoking and wandering around a quite deserted European city with flash backs to different situations in the original YouTube video;  these are sometimes referenced in the song lyrics - but not necessarily when they are voiced.  - still very good for getting vocabulary this song.

 

His girlfriend is also pictured separately wandering around the same city.  You get to see her boobs if you can bear his droning on until the end.
