Andorra is a small principality located between the borders of Spain and France. The population is less than 100,000, but millions of tourists visit each year. Chris White, Colin Blunstone
's bandmate in The Zombies, was one of them. He wrote the song about this journey, and it ended up on Blunstone's second solo album, Ennismore
While told the story to Songfacts: "I was on holiday with my then girlfriend in Sitges, just south of Barcelona. We decided to drive up to Andorra for a couple of nights. We thought it would be sunny and dry - but down came the rain! Later we went to Grenada – only to experience the same weather conditions as we had in Barcelona and Andorra. So, having a guitar with me I wrote 'Andorra.' When you run for the sun – you catch the rain!
That's the true story of 'Andorra.' I later went back with my first wife to live in Sitges."
