Darwin posted a few days ago about guilty music pleasures, so here's one of mine that's appropriate to post again today: La Guadalupana:
I watched this on the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe for about five years running, and I don't care how cheesy it may be, Juan Diego here always makes me teary-eyed. Also, our pop stars' accents don't correspond to any Spanish I ever heard in Los Angeles or Texas, but I love the way they pronounce "Mexicanos". Castilian Spanish is supposed to be noted for its lisp; is this at all related? Of course, the way American pop stars sing English doesn't match most spoken usage either.
Happy feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
