Cumbia, My Lord, Cumbia

A little Mexican cumbia on Saturday night for you, courtesy of Los Angeles Azules.

"Cumbia Candelosa" - Los Angeles Azules

"Piensalo Bien" - Los Angeles Azules

As the Spanish speakers and users of Google Translate among you will know, Los Angeles Azules would be called in English The Blue Angels. Roy Orbison knows one of them.

"Blue Angel" - Roy Orbison

You would also know that "Piensalo Bien" means, roughly, "Well, think about it". Robert Earl Keen expresses a similar sentiment in this track from his excellent album "Gringo Honeymoon". In the title track he honeymoons in... Mexico, of course! We don't just throw this together, you know.
