No Controles is a song originally written by Nacho Cano, a member of the Spanish band Mecano.

The song was first made popular in Spain and Europe in 1983 by the band Olé Olé, with Vicky Larraz on vocals.

In Latin America, particularly in Mexico, the song was made popular by the band Flans in 1985, Nacho Cano gave them the song because they were good friends. It was later made popular by Mexico's Café Tacuba on their album of covers Avalancha de Éxitos at 1996.

Recently the song has been featured in the musical Hoy No Me Puedo Levantar also created by Nacho Cano.

It was also sung by Edurne in the TV Show Los Más de La Fiesta in Antena 3.

Paty Manterola a Mexican singer/actress also has sung the song (2006).

The song translates as 'don't control' in English, referring to a series of life choices that could possibly be controlled such as 'mi forma de pensar...vestir' the way I think or dress.
