I first heard this song on the album "Late Night Betty" by Pepe and the Bottle Blondes. Then...sorry...there is a supafine version by...you guessed it, the Camperos, off their 1992 album "Mariachi All Stars."
It has become a lounge standard, with famous interpreters including:Nat King Cole, cubanos Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo (who is coming to UCLA's Royce Hall, for you L.A. peeps), and the Trio Los Panchos with Chompitas Pinal. Lila Downs's version was recently featured as the Meaningful Music in an episode of House.
Tonight's singalong version is brought to you from the streets of Santiago, Cuba, courtesy of Los Tres Juanes:
