Title of an Lp from ca.1957:

"Grandes _exitos de_ la Orquesta Aragón"

Title of a contemporary CD:

"Grandes _hits con_ la Orquesta Aragón"

The reason for the use of "hits" with _con_ instead of with _de_
defeats my meager knowledge of Spanish syntax.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
