Nice pic!  And after bumping this track in my truck, I'm re-upping my rating to a 9 now.  This track still RULES!!  So much so that it RULZ!!  LLRP!!

 
BillG - thanks for this track, which I'll call my favorite "what the hell was that?" track of 2017.  And a 2nd thanks for the LOSSLESS format, there are some crazy sounds on this groove that my truck's hi-fi really pull out.  Brilliant!  ....not quite time to re-re-bump up to a 10, but damn it's close.  Long Live RP!!

Won't put it a "1" because it's not Manu Chao... so I put "2".   :)

ahahaha, it has something of Manu Chao indeed :) I wouldn't give him more than 1 on most of his songs either. But this is still somehow different and I really like it, at least enough to give a 7. I like the way the chorus seems to stretch and how the voice of the singer accompanies the instrument. 
Overall, nice to hear once in a while !

According to the band website and discogs.com, it appears that the album name has been changed to "Jei Beibi".  Wonderful song!

Thank you RP! I would have never known about this if I hadn't heard it here. I've upped my rating +2 to 9, since it's been haunting my dreams now for a couple of months!

I said no
She said yes
I said yes

She said no
In the end it does not matter, it's something God already decided

Death said yes
I say no
Life said no
I say yes
In the end what does it matter, if I died in life I survived?

It's a matter of time
So brief this moment
What you are and what I am
You left already tomorrow
And before you told me
The future is today

I bring this present
What have you been through?
It has been heavy
Missing misses
Everything is supported
Even though it is cloudy
Let's face it

Step by step
I still did not get tired
Some I walk (some I walk)
Others I walk (others I walk)
The truth does not matter because I do not know what my destiny is

It's a matter of time
So brief this moment
And this is who I am
You left already tomorrow
But you told me before
That the future is today

Today today today today
Today today today today
Today today today today
Today Today Today..
(From Google translate).

(Helps me appreciate the song).

I'm in the middle of grading papers, but I had to drop everything to listen to this song. A favorite, which I know only thanks to RP.

If I had a chance I would make a video for it, an adaptation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" with the last thirty seconds being simply the woman staring more and more into the distance, as the old man flies away.  I any case, this is definitely music for a film.

Rio Grande birding music.

I say that because a few years ago I went birding along the Rio Grande River on the Texas side. Once I got west of McAllen I was unable to find an English-language station on the car radio. So the drive to Roma was a steady stream of various genres of Mexican music and advertisements for an upcoming Mexican presidential election. 

It was a real surprise and a culture shock.
