Cinco de Mayo Spinning Playlist

Once again tiring of the same old playlists, I put together this one for Cinco de Mayo, one of my favorite holidays when I was in college.  While I found out from Wikipedia this is a day of Mexican heritage and pride, the playlist is Latin-inspired as I had some trouble coming up with strictly Mexican-American pop music appropriate for Spin and the Internet was no help.  It also includes 2 tracks by Mike Doughty who will be appearing at the Hoboken Arts and Music Festival this weekend at 4:30pm.  Mike Doughty was also the lead singer of Soul Coughing (Circles, Super Bon Bon) I discovered Mike Doughty through Veronica Mars one of my all-time favorite shows.  See the tribute to Veronica *hearts* Logan and the song, I Hear the Bells here. But he has some pretty kick ass tunes including 27 Jennifers (a favorite of Dave Matthews). More on the Hoboken Arts and Music Festival here.
