“Spanish Flea” was written by Julius Wechter in the 1960s with lyrics by his wife Cissy Wechter.

The song is best known from an instrumental version by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, released as a B-side to the single “What Now My Love” and on their 1965 album “Going Places”. The album was a No. 1 hit in the U.S. and the single peaked at #27 on the Billboard Hot 100, with its A-side reaching No. 24 and gaining a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental.

In the United States, the song is closely associated with the long-running game show The Dating Game, for which it served as the “Bachelor’s Theme”.
