Lazy Weekend Music: National Tequila Day
Posted July 24, 2015on:
Happy National Tequila Day, Widdershins! Considering everyone’s life lately, could this have come at a better time? I think not.
Tequila is not my drink of choice, but sometime there’s just nothing like a Margarita. Cold, tart, salty, slushy – just perfect on a hot summer’s day, or about 9 months of the year down here in SoFLA. For the purists, there’s the traditional shot of tequila with a slice of lime after licking some salt off the back of your hand. For those who prefer a sweet drink, there’s the Tequila Sunrise , and for fans of the bittersweet in life, hoist a Salty Perro or two. At any rate, there’s something for every palate – assuming that you like tequila, of course.
There are also an amazing number of songs that reference tequila. I easily found 100 or so. Of course, many of them are en español, but there are still plenty of them in English. So, hoist a glass of whatever’s handy and drink a toast to National Tequila Day – and to a better week ahead. List your songs below, as well as your thoughts about whatever comes to mind.
This is a seriously open thread.
(1) Ten Rounds With Jose Cuerva – Tracy Byrd
(2) Straight Tequila Night – John Anderson
(3) Margaritaville – Jimmy Buffett and Alan Jackson
(4) Tequila! – The Champs
(5) Tequila – The Pretenders
