Song of the Day - Suavamente (NYC Remix) - Elvis Crespo


Today is Cinco de Mayo, a day marking the Mexican army's victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862.  The anniversary is really a minor day of note in Mexico, but in the past couple of decades it has become the Mexican version of St. Patrick's Day here in the States,  In other words, it's just another excuse to drink beer whilst celebrating Mexican culture (Dos Equis anyone?).  I don't really know any Mexican music, but I have been known to listen to Latin music in general here and there, but I figured I'd post at least a Spanish song to commemorate the day.  Here's an infectious dance number from 1998.  It's the nasally-voiced Elvis Crespo and his hip-shaking, Spanglish remix of Suavemente...
