When I was recently posting about the Mexican Revolution art show now on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, I had a musical link that I thought would be perfect. It's a great song by Mariachi El Bronx called Revolution Girl. It was spot on: obviously thematic with its "revolution" theme (even thought it's a different kind of revolution that the song is about) and uses the traditional Mexican musical art form of mariachi. So it had it all. And then I forgot to link it or discuss it at all. Sorry, guys, but sometimes I'm just a dope.
Anyway, I love mariachi. It's romantic (and I'm a huge romantic), it has a great musical vibe, and the musicians dress up in very cool outfits. I don't find it cheesy at all; rather, I find it unique folk music that is authentic and expressive. It's chido! And this particular track is sung in English, and is a great catchy song. So grab a Pacifico and enjoy the youtube link below to the song - it's sort of low-fi, sorry.
I promise to do better next time if you promise to continue to spread the good word about BRP, and to join me when I venture out on the town to rock out. Adios, babies.
