Tupelo Honey Playlist 10/27/09

After just returning from a week of drinking and debauchery in Los Cabos Mexico I had to play a set of my favorite cantina tunes. Some like "Drunk in Mexico" make for perfect drinkin' tunes, others are Mexican tinged classics that should be sing-a-longs for any Americana fan. Hope you got out the blender, some chips and salsa, a sombrero, some limes and enjoyed the tangent.

BTW if you plan on a trip to Mexico don't forget you ipod. Mexican cantinas have the worst music I've heard in a long time. No local slant, no originality just bad cliche rock tunes. It reminded me of the problems with commercial radio: programing to the lowest common denominator. I heard song after song that I didn't want to hear 15 years ago and I certainly didn't want to hear on my vacation. Thank god I brought an ipod loaded with my favorite cantina songs.

Till Next Week
Hasta Luego
