Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Mexican Rock Band of the 60's #2: "Los Hitters". In English that means "The Wife Beaters". I think that's what Google Translate said.

Anyways, here's a song that Kinks fans should recognize: Hombre Respetable

Wouldn't it just be The Hitters?

No, Los Hitters sound right. They did that a lot. Mix spanish and english. They still do that. We say Los Beatles, Los Rolling Stones, etc.

And google translate is most likely wrong. Hitters must be related to "hit songs"

Maybe I should have thrown in a ;) to make it obvious.

Yeah, it was a pretty weak joke. But at least I'm trying.

Here we have Los Crazy Boys performing La Pulga, which Google translates as "blood-sucking insect of the genus Ctenocephalides", whatever that means.

I can't explain why Hans and Franz are in this video. Maybe to pump you up.

It roughly translates as "Bony Moronie". ;) <--- (see what I did there?)

But seriously, I typed "Laisse Tomber les Filles" into Google Translate and it came back as "Chick Habit". I kid you not. I was expecting "Drop the girls" or maybe a more awkward phrase like "Let the girls fall", but I got the title of April March's english version of the song. Weird.

After our brief detour to visit José, we're back to Mexico with Los Rockin' Devils.

I hate it when people put together something with reasonably good production values but don't bother to use a mic.

YouTube channel for the advertising campaign for Cadbury Creme Eggs in the UK and Ireland, starting in late 2008 and continuing this year.

I wonder what would have happened if this series ran in the US.

From the classic TV movie, Trilogy of Terror.

Silly 1950's horror movies don't get much more silly than this. Gotta love it when they use obviously Caucasian actresses, and try to pass them off as native island girls.

Zut! Non!

Oui. Another Sylvie Vartan video. But this may be the best one yet. A song with a gorgeous melody, nifty choreography (how there's only one blonde on the stage, and how the dancers freeze) and the way Sylvie starts reclined and slides off the couch to dance during the solo.

Irresistable.

On this past Sunday Edition on NPR Jake Shimabukuro was interviewed and said that one thing that people had challenged him and his ukelele with had been "But can you play 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on that thing?" Yes, he can.

Every time I hear that song, I wake up and wonder if I'm still dreaming.
