Marcelo Cunning Playlist!!!

These songs, in one way or another, talk about or represent NYC. I'm gonna get chatty and descriptive for each one:

Most Latinos in the US know Charityn as a Palmolive soap pusher and the irritating Escandalo TV Host. But before she became a media-chisme whore, she actually put out a few decent songs. This specific one is a great disco track and the first song you should listen to when you first move here. It nails the NYC dream dead on.

Fannypack's second record kinda flopped. Or at least I never heard anybody comment anything about it since I've lived here. Well, it's really fucking good. Better than the first! 718 is Brooklyn's area code, for those who don't know, and besides being extremely catchy, you can totally image some bratty Queens teen riding the F train while rockin the song on her ipod. "BK is you with me, NYC! Everywhere else, you can suck up on my titty" is serious poetry.

This band is based in NYC and we had them play Nacotheque once. Their rock stuff was great, but when I heard this song I was FLOORED. I love Baile Funk and this is what I think most of it should sound like nowadays.

Another NYC band (sort of) who has mastered the two minute single. Could they be the new CCR? Maybe not. But seriously, a great band. I love the sound of their recordings; very full and dynamic.

I'm from Guadalajara, Mexico. We like Banda. Banda Machos and Banda Maguey are amongst our biggest exports. This song isn't so much about Banda and "Caballito"(a type of Banda dance) but more about evolution: "Hoy quitare el miedo a sentirme en la vanguardia sin tener que ir a New York para ver alla que pasa." Which more or less translates to "Today I rid myself the fear of feeling avant-garde without visiting New York." That's fucking amazing. You see kids? You don't have to live here to be cool. Still, you have to be cool even if geography is against you.
