A Ti Solita Te Quiero is another song that would suffer unsuccessful re-vamping during the next decade. By 1950, and Voice of the Xtabay, it would be known as Monos (Monkeys). This early version is simpler than the later, with no extraneous coloratura or high staccati flights. The two verses are sung cleanly and with much gusto. In its new, virtuostic format as Monos (Monkeys) it proved to be a very popular number with nightclub audiences.
