La Bamba: The Pinnacle of Music


So, I was at the health club this morning, and "La Bamba" pops out over the loudspeakers. I forgot how fantastic that song is. In fact, I think there's a good argument for that song being the greatest song of all time. You know why?

I don't speak Spanish, and yet can sing every word.

What other completely Spanish song has become as popular in the US? There's a kickin' guitar solo, and it's just amazingly catchy. This is what I call a 'sticky' song.

i'll concede that "feliz navidad" is at least in the same category. but, it's not even close to as cool of a song.
