Mike met David Christie in the early 1970’s and became great friends.They both had collaborated on many songs together, check out the song “Too Shy To Say Hello” (the b-side to David’s 1987 single “Des Vacances A Capbreton”). You can also hear Mike and David sing on their friend’s album, Nicole Valérie’s -“Quand Nous Vivons Ensemble”, which they wrote and produced.
 

Below, listen to the rare unreleased track Mike and David wrote titled “Fiesta”. The team had in mind for other artists to sing the song, but unfortunately, it was never picked up as Mike explains: 

“Mike Mesure and David Christie wrote this song in 1987 for Julio Iglesias, Ricky Martin, Barry Manilow or any other artist capable of turning it into a massive international hit. Unfortunately – for tragic reasons – twenty years have gone by and neither Julio, Ricky, Barry nor anyone else has ever gotten around to hearing it!”

Enjoy listening to this rare track sung by David himself, and feel free to sing along too – video and lyrics are courtesy of Mike Mesure.

Fiesta! Lyrics:

What a night it’s gonna be
People dancing in the streets
The smell of fireworks in the air
Can’t you hear that latin beat
Everybody’s on their feet
Such excitement everywhere

This ain’t no time to sit at home and watch TV
Baby won’t you come along with me

Chorus:
To the fiesta!
Let’s go to the fiesta!
Come on babe get dressed up
Put on your dancing shoes
Fiesta, let’s go to the fiesta!
Baby let the fiesta!
Blow away your blues

What a sight you are tonight
You look great all dressed in white
As you dance beneath the stars
It’s good to see you having fun
I know before the night is done
You’re gonna break so many hearts

I hope the fiesta is never ever gonna stop
Yes we’re gonna dance until we drop, hey!

Chorus:
At the fiesta!
What a lovely fiesta!
Dancing at the fiesta!
Until the light of day
Fiesta! Dancing at the fiesta!
Theres nothing like a fiesta!
To blow your blues away!

Hey! Fiesta! Hey! Fiesta!

I hope the fiesta is never ever gonna stop
Yes were gonna dance until we drop

Chorus:
At The fiesta!
What a lovely fiesta!
Dancing at the fiesta!
Until the light of day
Fiesta! Dancing at the fiesta!
There’s nothing like a fiesta!
To blow your blues away

Fiesta! Fiesta! Fiesta!
