Day 4: Mexo-Electro Pop

To be quite honest with you, during the 80’s, I was never really a big fan of pop music. It never spoke to me. But my music preferences have evolved and still do to this day. And with the passage of time, now that my music tastes have matured, I can say that I still do not like this type of music.

What I don’t understand  is that this sound is making a bit of a comeback. Remove the whole hipster neon-generation ironic thing and you are still left with music that is hit or miss. But with all negativity removed, maybe I should just take it for what it is – its ok…I suppose? I have friends from Mexico City and Tijuana who usually tend to go ape shit over this kinda stuff. So the nostalgia factor is something that I totally understand – but it’s not for me.

Besides Leo Dan, most these acts hail from Mexico, trying to cash in on some sort of new-wave music hysteria that captured the US in the mid to late 80’s. Byanka probably had the most success with her Madonna cover. It’s interesting to see that Grupo Latino even pooped out the Italo Disco favorite from La Bionda. But probably my favorite cut out of all of these 45’s is Morgan’s Que Bonita Baila (how beautiful you dance) – nice break on that. Anyway, like I said, hit or miss. Enjoy!

P.S. = Tomorrow O-Dub from Soul Sides is dropping an article. Stay tuned – the music is very very nice.

P.S.S. = For Erika

    While I thank you for introducing me to Byanka (which totally reminds me so much of my older sisters in South Texas in the 80s), my ears are bleeding a little from Leo Dan’s rap!

    Listen to my combination of Cumbia + Reggaeton = Cumbiaton. “Cumbiaton” is already signed with Demon Music Group UK. Browse through my website for more details. Play it, listen to it, and request it. Thanks!
