Songs We Heard at Every Baptism, Quince, Wedding, Sometimes Even Funerals

Most of these made us cringe, but we danced to them anyway.

Gato volador? Let’s admit we were all confused and had no idea what this song was about, but don’t lie, some of us actually tried to test if our cat knew how to fly.

White people have Old McDonald’s Had a Farm, we have this ?.

This is the weirdest food song to ever dance to. We remember thinking, “oh, so this is how mayonaise is made.” Who needs Food Network?

We didn’t know what the song was about or any lyric other than “el venao” and we only looked forward to doing the hand motion to it. Also, this is probably the most uplifting song about cheating.

We have no idea how an American country song would be such a hit in Latino culture. But it’s pretty funny watching your tío trying to dance to this after a few tequilitas.

They played this at the end of every kid’s party, but it was always the moms who were the only ones on the dance floor. Plus, any song that tells you how to do the dance is always a wedding classic.

It was so repetitive, but SO good. We ran when we heard this song.

Some of us thought it was a cute song until we grew up and realized it might’ve been a song about a sexual position, yet mom would always push us to the dance floor like “ve baila, no seas ranchera.”

This is kind of like the Latino anthem. Even though we grew up here, we learned this dance in elementary – and thank goodness, because we danced this at every party we went to.

This was the perfect song for young women: cute men, a good cumbia and chocolate. ¡A bailar!
