Friday Fiesta! (aka More Sounds of Mexico)

I felt a little bad about my post on Wednesday because I just picked a banda song at random for you to listen to. Well have I got a treat for you today! Ibis helped me find songs I actually like and/or songs we sing and/or hear around the house a lot. And/or.

K-Paz is a popular band that played here in Zihuatanejo last year. I didn't go but Ibis said the crowd went nuts. Here's my favorite song of theirs, Procuro Olvidarte:

And my second favorite, Mi Credo (I've sung karaoke to this):

Now for something a little more interesting. Los Karkiks is from our area -- I've seen their tour bus many many times -- and their songs are very addictive. Ibis can actually sing the lyrics and has tried to teach me as a party trick. You know, in case we ever get invited to a party.

Arremangala Arrempujala

And another. Can you imagine hearing this over and over and over? Just try not to sing along! (There goes that sarcasm again, I really need to get a handle on that.)

El Puñetazo

I hope you like at least one of these!

I clicked 'play' on all of them at the same time. Its a showdown!

Melanie Avila said...

Turkey, now you're talking crazy!

Nice music, I like the beat.

I have no clue what they are saying.

My word:i m pugg (I put the spaces in)

Nadine said...

How fun! I liked Mi Credo the best although now, since you mentioned it, I think we need video of you doing karaoke of it. :)

Melanie Avila said...

Penguin, I don't always know what they're saying either.

Nice word. :)

Melanie Avila said...

Nadine, I like K-Paz. Even though it gets super bouncy after the intro, I love the opening. :)

A karaoke video might take awhile -- this was in Lazaro with his family. Although I think they DID record me, lol.

Nice selection! I liked the 3rd one with the dancing blue guys. I liked it so much, I would consider downloading it to my ipod. See? I'm not a Mexican music poopy head!

Robin, I'm glad someone likes it! Ibis was irritated that I implied that he likes these songs. He does not. lol.
