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!
What! Lent Begins Next Week?
