“Tequila” by The Champs

“Tequila” is one of the best instrumentals of all time. Well, it’s not really an instrumental because they say “Tequila” three times. It’s one of the easiest songs to karaoke to. It was first recorded by The Champs and has gone on to appear in many memorable movies and TV shows. You hear it in Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Sandlot, Happy Days, and to a lesser extent Two and a Half Men. I remember I went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with my family when I was sixteen and we went to a restaurant for dinner. There was a mariachi band walking around taking requests. I requested “Tequila” and they played it on the spot. If choosing a song is a competition, I won that shit because all the other customers got in on it. We turned the restaurant into a party for a couple of minutes. The song is infectious. You only need to hear it once to know it for life.

Body Shots

A body shot is a shot of liquor that is served on a person as opposed to in a shot glass. Most of the time a drunk (and slightly slutty) female will lay down on the bar top and somebody else slurps tequila off her tits or tummy. Everyone else laughs and takes pictures. Body shots are usually a sign that things are going to get rowdy. Body shots are messy for everyone involved. The human shot glass will be sticky with liquor and spit. The person taking the shot always dribbles down their chin and they occasionally suck up a loose hair or foreign object. And the bartender gets to clean up all the drinks that get knocked over when the human shot glass jumps up on the bar. Body shots should be reserved for special occasions like a 21st birthday or Cinco de Mayo. They should be somewhat random and special, not a routine event.

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo or Cinco de Drinko is a Mexican holiday to celebrate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French and the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. In the United States it’s a day to celebrate Mexican heritage and to get shitfaced on Corona, Tecate, and tequila. Cinco de Mayo means the Fifth of May, and it’s celebrated on the first fat Tuesday in May.

This is actually a pseudo-holiday. Most of Mexico ignores the holiday, except for the people of Puebla. It was a recognized holiday in California since 1863, and gained rising popularity in the 1940s-‘60s. And then the beer companies started promoting it as a drinking day, a Mexican St. Patrick’s Day. And that’s where we are today. Just another excuse to get fucked up and not get judged for it. I’ll take it.
