This is the hit party song on the album.  I originally wrote it as a much slower ballad-style song in an odd time signature, and Lenore suggested speeding it way up.  Quite frankly, my first opinion of it was that it was sort of a novelty song, and not really a keeper - just mediocre, until I played it fast like this.  Then I asked if she would play accordion on it, which she did.  The speed and the accordion are the highlights that make this song great.  I love Mexican music and culture, and suspect Mexican people will be flattered by and appreciate an attempt by a gringo dude from Michigan to write a song that comes close to their Tejano or Norteno style like this.  This has strong potential as a single in the right market, which is why I've released it on iTunes Mexico.  I may sound crazy for saying so, but I have to assume you are crazy if you don't like this song.  Wow, I've never been so confident and bold about one of my own songs, but this is one of my favorites.
