Released in 1988, Descanso Dominical is the second Ariola release from La Movida Madrileña trio Mecano. Produced by the bandmembers themselves, it's a combination of melodic synth pop anthems and unique social commentary, including "Los Amantes," described as the first Spanish gay anthem, and "El Blues del Esclavo," which addresses the abolition of slavery. The follow-up to Entre el Cielo y el Suelo, it features the singles "No Hay Marcha en Nueva York," "Mujer Contra Mujer," and "Un Ano Mas."
