Well, there's always Chilliwack/April Wine/Triumph/Pat Travers/Trooper/Saga/Bachman-Turner Overdrive. {#Guitarist}

No noodling or repetition in that crowd, eh? {#Redface}

This entire album was incredible.  Truly a classic that hasn't aged at all as Hispanic culture is more relevant than ever.

Saw Tito Puente's son's band at a concert and Tito the younger thanked Carlos Santana for enabling him to attend college thanks to the royalties on this timeless gem.

Oye como va is thankfully a standard (never played too much, imho), but I need to comment on the splendid visuals RP provides: that Abraxas cover is trippy cool/weird 70's and the water color or marker portrait of Santana is right on funny, thank you!

wait, ohmygod, Spirit follows! Mmmmmmm

Covered this tune in my first rock & roll band in 1972.  I played bass and sang lead, phonetically, as I didn't know a word of Spanish.  I have no idea if I was even close.

This one still rocks the house!

I used to live in Albuquerque, and this song got played around 8 times a day. You could literally change stations to get away from it only to hear it on another station at the same exact time. I abstain from voting because, through no fault of Bill's, overplay has ruined it for me. That doesn't happen that often to me.

Also, there was a mayor of Albuquerque a while back named Jim Baca. Guess I know what he's doing in his retirement....

I liked this album when I was in high school in the latter half of the 70's. One year I arranged this tune as a drum cadence for the drumline to play as we led the band into the stadium before the football game. The whole thing took on a cool hip vibe. I found out recently that the drumline continued to play it for several years after I left and the entire student body just ate it up!

Cool music transcends!

I'll never hear this song again without thinking of that movie by the Coen brothers. Hilarious!

 
It's not that this is a BAD song but it's one of those FM songs I feel like I've heard way too many times.
What saves it for me is the usage in the Coen's movies (it was in Big Lebowski too).

I guess there is no accounting for taste.  The Specials' "Message to You Rudy" before this was "good for my ears" , this just annoys me and I don't think I could give an adequate explanation why.
