    Mariachis are ubiquitous. One of the old, classic, romantic ballads that's often requested is Malaguena Salerosa. But then a band called Chingon got hold of it and turned it into a rock song that so impressed Quentin Tarrantino that he choreographed the end of one of the Kill Bill movies with it.

    This version is hot, passionate, and I swear, 10 times more romantic than the old mariachi style!
