The 10 Best Songs of La Sonora Dinamita, the Most Joyous Group/Makers of the Best Music Videos EVER

Categories: Español Music

1. "A Mover la Colita"

But the undisputed masterpiece of La Sonora Dinamita is another Margarita song of yet another Vargas composition, with a title that says it best: "Let's Shake Our Butts." And the lyrics are even more straightforward--you should shake your but because "it's in style," "it's popular," and everyone shakes their butts, from whales to sharks, seahorses to mermaids, Superman to Wonder Woman to even Donald Duck "when he looks at himself in the mirror." You should also shake your butt, Margarita advises, "so you worries go away/and your heart gets happy." And if you don't move it? Your butt "will get sick."

Greatest. Group. Ever.

    I enjoyed your post, as La Sonora Dinamita (and all its descendants) are among my very favorite singers. As a 100% juero who simply learned Spanish in school and found all these songs on my own, I was always somewhat confused by the names (the singer Margarita on "Ya no eres mi bombom" was so obviously the same person who sang "Que nadie sepa mi sufrir") but it didn't really matter, I LOVED all the songs, no matter who was singing. 

     So I was happy to know and agree with just about all your choices. I was never much of a fan of "Mi Cucu", even the English version ("My Toot Toot" which I even think came first) but really, it WAS a huge hit, so...However, I would definitely have included "Carmen, se me perdio la cadenita" and La Bomba, though I think that one may be attributed to one of the descendants, Sonora Show. At any rate, I do wholeheartedly agree, this group is one of the All Time Greatest. It's a shame this music hasn't been more embraced by mainstream America, I personally think it holds its own in ANY language or culture!
