Post by lucky on Tue May 25, 2010 11:41 am

okay, i'm totally ripping this off from some poster's question on the "lonely planet" webboard, but i still find it an interesting question. what song(s) about mexico do you love?

i'll start it off. my favorite of all time is probably "deportee" or "plane wreck at los gatos" written by woody guthrie and covered by many other artists. (personal favorite of mine is the cover by arlo guthrie and emmylou harris.) and another that i love is "seven spanish angels" by willie nelson and ray charles.

In my opinion one of the best Mexician songs ever recorded, "Amor Eterno" written by Juan Gabriel and sung by Rocio Durcal

"las mañanitas" – used for birthdays as well as other stuff, my special favorite because I was born in the morning, toward the end of April, and my mom tells me "all the flowers bloomed for you on that morning"... "el día en que tu naciste, naceron todas las flores".... (OK, that isn't the literal translation, it's just the concept).

Corny, I suppose, but I love hearing the song "Viva Mexico!" Kinda makes my heart sing, and makes me glad I live here. A minute into this You Tube, you will hear Mariachi Vargas do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qrv8dYDZlQQ
(It's followed by La Negra, so if you are into mariachis, stay tuned.)

My absolutely favorite Mexican song! And that version is wonderful. (I didn't mention it before because I think La Malagueña is from España, si? And I thought the question was about a songs about México. Anyway, thanks. I am saving this one, which is better than the other versions I have-

Oh, look! I understand La Malagueña was written for a movie, so guess this is it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nc47rDROxDM&NR=1
I have been listening to this song for 50 years, and never tire of it.

Couldn't agree more! One good example of their virtuosity:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BfoYTwjjeQ&feature=related

My wife is from Mexico so for the last 38 years I've probably been exposed to more than my share of good Mexican music. If you are looking for music to bring a smile to your lips or a tear to your eye there is nothing like it.

For the lover's of Flamenco dancing, there are many styles. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. So relax with your favorite refresco when you have the time. Stop and smell the roses as life flies by much to quickly.



[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xhits_HAeKM&feature=related[/youtub]





Flamenco is the traditional song and dance of the Gypsies (flamencos) of Andalusia in southern Spain.

The art form developed over several centuries from Gypsy, Moorish, Andalusian, and other roots. Flamenco music and dance became popular in the early 19th century as café entertainment.

Canto (“song”) is the core of flamenco, and like baile (“dance”), it has three forms: grande or hondo (“grand” or “deep”), intense, profound songs, tragic in tone, and imbued with duende, the transformation of the musician by the depth of the emotion; intermedio (“intermediate”), moderately serious, the music sometimes Oriental-sounding; and pequeño (“small”), light songs of exuberance, love, and nature.

Individual genres include the light bulerías; the more serious soleares and its lighter descendant, the alegrías; the fandangos grandes, a serious adaptation of a lighter non-Gypsy genre; the malagueñas, an offshoot of the fandangos; and cantos grandes such as the siguiriyas gitanas and saetas.

Both text and melody of these songs, like the flamenco dance, are improvised within traditional structures such as characteristic rhythms and chords. Zapateado, intricate toe- and heel-clicking steps, characterizes the men's dance; the traditional women's dance is based more on grace of body and hand movement.

The baile grande, especially, is believed to retain elements of the dance of India, where the Gypsies originated. Castanets, found in Andalusian dance, are not traditional to flamenco. Song and dance may be accompanied by jaleo, rhythmic finger snapping, hand clapping, and shouting.

In the 19th century, guitar accompaniment became common for many genres, and guitar solos also developed. In the 20th century, commercial pressure distorted much traditional flamenco dance.

My favorite is the Tallboys playing "Somewhere in Mexico". But part of the fun is watching them sing in the Youtube video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pV4xh4g5WJQ

Really interesting views of our lakeside!
