#showertune: ‘el pito’ by joe cuba sextet

some latin flavour creeps into the world of #showertune today in the form of El Pito by Joe Cuba Sextet. i first heard this song as part of the awesome soundtrack to the brilliant 1996 Girl Skateboards video Mouse (intro here) directed by Spike Jonze.

if you’ve never seen it and have half an hour to spare you really should peep it – even if you’re not into skateboarding (here it is in its entirety). i probably watched it over a hundred times between 1996 and 1999. it taught me around 72% of what i know about life.
