so The Book of Life has a Mexican mariachi version of “I Will Wait” by fucking Mumford and Sons
this movie is a cinematic masterpiece
I agreed about the masterpice thing, but ammm, that’s not mariachi pal, it’s a genere of mexican music called ”norteño” or ” musica norteña” . As you can imagine it was ”invented” in the north of the country ;)
Reblogging for the added info! Very neat and informative!
As soon as I heard this I was thinking “This straight up sounds like polka” and, when looking it up on Wikipedia, it appears this musical style was a result of cultural fusion between Mexican people and Germanic/Central European immigrants. Neat!
I highly recommend using tumtaster ‘cause it gives you a playlist from your dashboard and it’ll go from frank sinatra to a cool fall out boy remix to nice legs daisy dukes makes a man go [goat screaming]
the problem with the tumtaster app is that you can’t always see the name of the song or artist, and even if you do it doesn’t link to the post that the music comes from or who posted/reblogged it to your dash, so it’s not easy to find the context of a joke audio post or find a cool song again
but I’m just gonna go out on a limb and guess that Revocation - A Debt Owed to the Grave was posted by gaytiburones
