Armando Manzanero, Elvis Presley, a plagiarism, a complaint and a lot of money

Armando Manzanero wrote we are boyfriends at the beginning of the 60s and recorded it, for the first time, in 1968, by the hand of the RCA label. The song immediately became one of the most beloved of the singer-songwriter and was in charge of granting him international fame, throughout Latin America and Europe. So much so, it did not happen too long until the idea of turning it arose in English and French. In this way, in 1970, a New York composer called Sid Wayne decided to adapt it (not literally) and the result was presented under the name It's impossible, a topic that popularized Elvis Presley and Perry as.

As expected, it's impossible at the United States and, as a result, a curious rumor was born that said Sid Wayne, blinded with ambition, had registered the song in his name, assuring that Manzanero would have plagued him. "SID translated into English we are boyfriends, IT's titled IT's Impossible, registered it in the United States and then denounced Manzanero by Plagio. The Mexican singer-songwriter lost that lawsuit and had to return all the money he had won with we are groom," he published, in 2015, the Mexican newspaper Excelsior. But none of that is true.

In November 2013, Armando Manzanero attended an Argentine program called has the floor and, after being consulted by the supposed controversy, he answered that "he who wrote the lyrics in English was called Sid Wayne and not only did not make any judgment, but It was very grateful, "said the composer, and then add that he forged, even, a friendship with the American. "Legally, it is customary that, when a song has an original lyrics, who makes the version in another language, it takes 35% of the profits. But with Sid Wayne it was so much the taste that this great success has given me, that I gave 50% of them, "said Manzanero in front of the cameras.

In that same program, the well-known musician spoke of the various problems that the authors suffer with respect to the authors of their compositions. And not only in relation to the rights of him, but also by suffering a certain use on the part of the streaming platforms. "I hope it is legislated on this subject, because I can sell you something that is not mine and the thinkers of that Internet service sell everything and give service of everything, but they have never asked the composers if they want it to be sold That and do not pay them, "he said.

For 10 years, Manzanero was the president of the Society of Authors and Composers of Mexico and, since assumed the leadership of the Organization, the musician fought against piracy, destroyed more than 20,000,000 illegal copies, reached agreements with platforms as YouTube and tidal and fought for no one to take advantage of the compositions of deceased musicians. That's why Manzanero is and will remain deeply respected on the land of him. Because, although he is no longer physically, the Spirit of Him will continue to inspire the war of thousands of authors who seek that his work be recognized publicly.
