I've been afraid of lettuce for years. I guess that explains it.

Take Proloxil and you'll start hearing Mexican music. I like it already.

Yeah - I've watched it 8 times now just to hear that song. Mexican music: the next treatment for depression?

That's frickin hilarious. What song is that? I wanna download it!

I'm guessing it's called "Mucho Muchacha" which would mean (translating loosely) "Lotsa, uh, you know, 'female companionship,' WINK!" I've heard it before, but not necessarily that particular version, so it's probably an easy thing to find?

I'd also like that blues song - sounded like John Lee Hooker but I can't be sure. Might have been older.

I'm thinking more "Muddy Waters."

But I want that other song.

Nice catch, Julie. I found that version on the Confessions of a Dangerous Man soundtrack. The Barnes & Noble URL for the page containing a RealAudio sample is long and ugly so I Tiny URL'd it:

Or if you're like me and you're curious about the source then Esquivel's 1962 recording Latin-Esque is the place to start. I may pick this one up myself.

Somebody out in WinMX-land has it up for download, but their server is so crappy I haven't been able to snag it yet... but perhaps today...

I have to say that when I got this, I nearly peed. I work in biotech, and my job is to make sure the copy Marketing comes up with agrees with what we're allowed to say about our product (i.e. doesn't overstate the benefits of the product), so this was particularly funny to me. In fact, it was so funny, I sent it to my boss!
