RODRIGUEZ-CENTENO, Juan Carlos  y  JORQUERA-FUERTES, Isabel. You are false and a liar. The femme fatale concept in the songbook of The Chichos. Recial [online]. 2023, vol.14, n.23, pp.306-320.  Epub 30-Jun-2023. ISSN 2718-658X.

Los Chichos were one of the most popular musical bands during the Spanish Transición in the 80's. Pop culture usually links the band with jail and drug thematics, but from we can tell in the analyzed discography (1973-1989), the femme fatale figure is actually their main focus. In this article, we will revisit this archetype; what it is, what sort of events come out from it and their consequences. The methodology used it's that of the mixed content analysis with quantitative and cualitative techniques. We have analyzed 43 songs where the figure of the femme fatale appears. The main take away from this essay is that the bad woman lies and abandones her partner, in dire conflict with the Gipsy Law where family is the most important pillar. Another one is that the bad woman behaviour will ultimately lead her to her own demise, to never be happy in the future. The most extreme result of this statements is violence and murder against that traiturous woman.

Palabras clave : Chichos; femme fatale; popular music; gender violence.
