Vicente Fernàndez- VOLVER VOLVER

El Idolo de Mexico with his 1976 cross the border hit on CBS records, "Volver Volver." This guy IS the undisputed king of Ranchera and is still kickin it hard, playing arenas across the US (check his myspace, pretty amazing). Here is a video link where he starts the song on a juke box (I have always wanted to do that) and sits down to drink. This guy just has it, the strength and gentle grace of his voice is undeniable. The arrangement of the organ, the strings, and the horns into swooping punches with the "ay! ay!" whelping interludes make this song a drink in the air salute to "the struggle." Here are the lyrics both in spanish and english.
