"La chica que yo quiero (Made in Spain)" (Spanish pronunciation: [la ˈtʃika ke ʝo ˈkjeɾo (ˈmeið in esˈpein)], "The Girl That I Want (Made in Spain)") is a song recorded by Spanish group La Década Prodigiosa. The song was written by Enrique Peiró and Francisco Dondiego. It is best known as the Spanish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, held in Dublin.

Background[edit]

The song is an up-tempo number which lyrically is a paean to the beauty and charm of Spanish girls and women; "Made in Spain - the best guarantee". La Década Prodigiosa sings that compared to Spanish girls, the others seem "all so cold".

Eurovision[edit]

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Turkey's MFÖ with "Sufi" and preceding Netherlands' Gerard Joling with "Shangri-La". At the close of voting, it had received 58 points, placing 11th of a field of 21.

It was succeeded as Spanish entry at the 1989 Contest by Nina singing "Nacida para amar".
