If you ever find yourself in Toronto, it would be my great pleasure to blow your bourbon mind. Open offer.

I love some of the tracks from the Soul Jazz comp Tropicalia. But, without wanting to sound controversial, if a Genie was to wipe all latin-American music from the face of the earth, I wouldn't miss it. There's a limit to how much out-of-time Spanish guitar strumming backed with saccharine happy lyrics that I can listen to. And that limit is somewhere near 0. The rhythms suck ass. The majority of it has no groove, no balls to it, nothing that hooks my attention or makes me even want to nod my head. Girls love it however, and I always wonder if the majority of guys that dig latin are doing so just to get into some girl's pants like something straight out of South Park where Randy pretends to be into fart music because that's what the kids listen to and he doesn't want to look out-of-touch.
99.9% of it I just do not get.
