Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine – “1,2,3” – (1987)

Okay, 1, 2 or 3 – which do you think this song peaked at on the Hot 100? Answer: 3. This is one of the more upbeat singles that Gloria Estefan ever had. It’s pure 80s with that slight Latin vibe that made her so successful and interesting. This song came from the last official Miami Sound Machine album, as the band more or less imploded (an always-changing version of the band still backs her today, but they are no longer billed separately). This is one of my favorite Estefan tunes.
