If you watch a lot of movies or TV, you're probably familiar with that piece of stereotypical Oriental music
that typically ends with a gong being sounded, and is often played during introduction shots with captions like "Hong Kong" or "Tokyo"- In short, you hear that music and you know that the events being depicted are taking place somewhere in Asia and not Dar-Es-Salaam or Barstow.
I know there's a Mexican equivalent piece of music- often played in things like old Speedy Gonzales cartoons, or in humourous situations where someone inexplicably finds themselves at a Mexican fiesta wearing a sombrero and a poncho, with a bottle of Tequila in one hand. But I cannot for the life of me find out what it's called- it's not Little Spanish Flea
, but I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out the song I'm looking for had been recorded by Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass at some point.
Anyone out there know the piece of music I'm referring to? It's been driving me mad trying to work it out...
