In his journal for 8 September 2007, Robert Hunter wrote:
"New song “Fandangalero” feels like a hit. I have to remind myself I’m still in the business where that always unlikely thing could happen, though in what context I truly can’t imagine. The carpenters hammering away next door (yes, even in the forest) just beat out the rhythm of my new song. Have they been evesdropping? I was singing the chorus line over and over. . . it goes: fandanga dangadangdang bang gangagangdang fandangalero. Soon the whole world will be singing it. People will come together over it, make love to it, set their ring-tones to it ... and peace will reign! What the world needs now is a major tongue-twister.”Hunter played it live, I think for the first time, on 22 July 2014 at the City Winery in New York.
