"Cien Años" (English: One Hundred Years) is a Mexican song written by Rubén Fuentes-A. Cervantes. Several artists had recorded this song, Pedro Infante in the 1950s for example, and the singer Selena made her personal cover. The song has been released in most of Selena's packages since its 1988 release.

Background information[edit]

The song was covered by Selena's singing group in 1988, Selena y Los Dinos, on their album Preciosa (Precious). Selena re-recorded the song with a more beat-to-beat pop style in 1990, for their first greatest hits album, 16 Super Exitos Originales. After Selena's death, the song appeared as a Mariachi song for the album Siempre Selena in 1996. Again the song appeared on Selena's greatest hits album, All My Hits/Todos Mis Exitos Vol. 2 in 2000. This song has extensive history dating back to Javier Solis and Pedro Infante
