two months pass...

I love Los Panchos with and without Eydie Gormé, but those records with Eydie Gormé are extra-special.

Agustin Lara. My mom's favorite and, if you're (a) romantic, unbeatable. Search any recordings of Lara voice+piano.

Seconded. His songs and voice are amazing. Sometimes I find another classic that turns out to be originally by him. Like “Piensa en mí.” Maybe his sister wrote it?

Most likely a co-write between the two of them. Seems to be from a film and he’s in it!

Agustín Lara was also the second husband of María Félix.
