Mexican-American singer Selena included a cover version of The Pretenders song "Back on the Chain Gang" with all-new Spanish lyrics on her album Amor Prohibido. The song was retitled "Fotos y Recuerdos" (which translates as "Photos and Memories"), and even though there were no references to prisoners in the Spanish lyrics, Selena's version still used the chain-gang chant hook in the chorus. The song became very successful on the Billboard Hot Latin Tracks charts, peaking at number 1 for seven weeks, giving Selena her 4th number one song for the year 1994
