Finding new music in unusual places
I was sitting in the conference hall this afternoon, working on an article and listening to the music they were playing while waiting for the next session to start. I can block out most music if it's not too loud or incredibly offensive, but when something out of the ordinary comes on I get shocked out of my zone. Such a shock came when what sounded like Mariachi music started coming from the speakers along with lyrics in Spanish.
Then I laughed out loud when the language changed to English, singing one of my favorite wacky songs. This rendition is different, though: Flaco Jimenez singing En El Ceilo No Hay Cerveza (In Heaven There Is No Beer) in Spanish, English, and Dutch. Definitely laugh-worthy to me, and enough to get me to buy his latest CD.
