Come Party With Me: Cinco De Mayo - Music

Well I'm taking the 5:30 flight down to San Diego and I have a lot to do when I arrive. In case you haven't been following along all week, I am planning a Cinco de Mayo barbeque fundraiser for my sister Trish and her sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma. I sent her an email attachment with the flyer I made to advertise the event on and have everything planned from the food to the drinks and the decor. However all of this virtual planning is nothing compared to what I will have to do when I land. Trish is going to pick me up and we are going directly to Costco to purchase the goods for the bbq. I have to make cupcakes, count how many Mexican blankets we have, and make sure the sodas get chilled. Heading down with a long playlist of my favorite Spanish music will definitely ease the last minute stress. To see what I'll be putting on my compilation

I have a huge collection of Spanish language music and actually really enjoy regatton and latino tunes. Shakira, Paulina Rubio, Julieta Venegas, and the new J.Lo Como Ama Una Mujer are wonderful female vocal pop selections. The Gypsy Kings are pretty well known but I like Alejandro Sanz, Fito y los Fitipaldis, Luis Miguel, and El Canto de Loco. La Oreja de Van Gouh and Chambao are also on the list. BuzzSugar's recommendation of Mexican flamenco fusion duo Rodrigo y Gabriela makes the cut. I'll take the latest cds from all of these singers put them on one playlist on my iPod and hit shuffle during the party.

What's your favorite Cinco de Mayo tune? Tell me who else I must add to my playlist.

Even thought it's kind of (really) dirty, I just love the song "Me Gusta la Gasolina."
