Algueró studied both music and medicine. Among his most famous compositions are Penélope, which he wrote specially for Joan Manuel Serrat, as well as Noelia (Nino Bravo), Tómbola (Marisol) and La chica ye-ye (Concha Velasco).
In 1969, he served as one of the conductors of the Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Madrid that year. He conducted "Catherine", sung by Romuald Figuier, which represented Luxembourg and "Vivo Cantando", sung by Salomé, which represented Spain. "Vivo Cantando" tied for first place with three other songs at 18 points. The win marked Spain's second win in the contest, the first time a country had won two years in a row.
In all, during the course of his career, Algueró wrote more than 500 songs and about 200 musical scores for films and television.
