Guadalajara (song)

Guadalajara is a well-known mariachi song written and composed by Pepe Guízar in 1937. The song was written in honor of his hometown, Guadalajara in the State of Jalisco Mexico.[1][2] It is probably the most famous mariachi song of all time. "Guadalajara Guadalajara" is considered both within Mexico and abroad as a synonym of the symbols of Mexico — Mariachi, tequila, and the charro — to such a degree that this song is like a Mexican hymn all around the world. It has been performed not only on hundreds of radio stations but also in many movies and by several international singers. One of the most popular interpretations outside of Mexico was that of Elvis Presley. Other notable non-Mexican interpreters, were Nat King Cole in his album "More Cole Español (1962),[3] Percy Faith "Viva the Music of Mexico (1958) [4] and Desi Arnaz "The Best of Desi Arnaz Mambo King".[5]
