The 10 Most Overplayed Songs at Mexican Weddings, Texas Edition

4. "Oye Mi Amor"

A little Rock en Español for the youngsters will keep the party going.


3. Los Tigres Del Norte, "La Puerta Negra"

Los Tigres Del Norte are like The Beatles of Mexico. They are beloved and adored for their songs of struggle, love, and lust. I used to sing this song at the top of my lungs as a kid while my dad grilled fajitas and costillas in the backyard of our East End Houston duplex. Hearing this song at a wedding brings back so many memories of my dearly departed mother, who with the most beautiful smile would encourage me to sing, no matter how badly off-key I was.


2. "Carnavalito"

Not sure how this one fits in, but this line dance is easy to learn and somehow it works. Why this is played at Mexican weddings continues to baffle me.

No matter how many times I hear it, Tragos is timeless. Went to a good ol double wedding, yes, double wedding down in Refugio, Tx. this past weekend and or course it ended the night-- twice. The most random place I've ever heard it played was at the Roxy which also ended the night, circa 01 I believe. Everyone knows it, everyone sings it and everyone goes home happy. Classic. Fa sho.
