On the 5th day of Christmas ... a song about our new (temporary) home, the Mexican state of Jalisco.

I stumbled upon this one while working on an all-español playlist, about half mariachi music - the music most associated with Guadalajara - and half modern Mexican alt-rock (Café Tacuba, Calle 13, etc.). I'm calling the playlist Invierno Tapatío, or "Tapatio Winter." While Mexico City residents are known as chilangos, Guadalajarans are known as tapatíos, a word with indigenous origins that is now most closely associated with the Jarabe Tapatío, better known in English as the Mexican hat dance.
