Cover #3

Tequila. What can I say? I've loved it ever since Pee Wee borrowed the janitor's shoes, got up and that table and did his thing. Eww gross. I meant dancing. Originally performed by The Champs in 1959 and covered in just about every way and style possible, Tequila is a bonafide novelty classic. And more importantly, Tequila was my childhood JAM. Eight year old me rocked out to it. Hard.

In 1982 three producers named Gloves, Konnor and Trilogy (of Not Love fame) came together to bring Tequila, streamlined and synthed up, into the italo 80's. I can't thank them enough for it.

Bo Boss- Tequila

I didn't think I'd be able to make it through this post without some sort of barf joke. Ah restraint. See you Monday with a special treat!

I'm so glad you posted this. I was going to post it myself as a reply to your cover posts. I love this track, it's so "whatever", you know what I mean? Totally pulls off being kinda silly. Did I say silly? I meant awesomly cool.
