Royal and Kapp’s “San Miguel”

A whacky music video from the early 80s when San Miguel de Allende was an empty, sun-bleached pueblito.  It looks like a ghost town compared with today’s hustle and bustle.

Spoiler alert: at the end, the Paroquia blasts off from Jardin like a space rocket. ¡Que, wait for it, chingon!

The lyrics are genius, including the chorus: “In San Miguel, Shan-gri-la,/In San Miguel it can be hell,/Shan-gri-la”
