Los Lobos

Come On, Let's Go

Song Review by

A song from the La Bamba soundtrack, this cover by Los Lobos does extreme justice to Richie Valens' original, which was his debut hit in 1958. A simple 1-4-5-chord progression frames the loose-limbed melody, making it one of the most definitive party songs. Although Valens' version is indeed definitive, this cover not only venerates his memory and influence, but it's also a hell of a lot of fun.
