First, a general note: I have been posting daily, but mostly in the Popocatépetl live-blog (and a wee bit under former tropical storm Chantal).
Now then, on to Don Goyo (always a congenial topic for me!)
Some people on Twitter, when talking about Popo, have included lines from a song.
I was wondering what song that might be and just did a quick YouTube check. This volcano has inspired quite a lot of music, including:
Old-timey (and mispronounced, by Kay Kyser’s band back in the day):
Hip (by Fey in the 1990s):
and Classical (yes it has its own overture, written by Alejandro Rosas Momox and performed by the Mexico City Philharmonic):
I like that overture – it catches the volcano’s exhalations nicely, as well as the patriotic sense this “show-off” so near the country’s capital city inspires.
Still haven’t found the song those lyrics are from, though.
