Los Super Seven

It is the weekend, so we will sing! Here is a version of “Plane wreck at Los Gatos” I had not heard before.

It is a very important song by Woody Guthrie, sung here by an important tejano group. The norteño accordeon comes in around 0:47 and surprised me with its combination of appropriateness and ostranenie. Woody sings the song as Woody sings, but the speaker in the song is Mexican-American.

Axé.
