Cinco de mei made me think of margaritas. Margaritas made me think that Jose Cuervo which make me think the Shelly West"s hit track from 1983 by the exact same name. It to be such a fun, catchy little tune. The success brought increased sales for Jose Cuervo Tequila, which brought much more success because that Shelly"s recording.

Another of she songs ns really chosen was "You"re the factor God do Oklahoma" - a duo through her brother-in-law, David Frizzell. The song was #1 top top the country charts in early "81. The was supplied in Clint Eastwood"s movie "Any Which means You Can" in 1980.

West had so plenty of hits alone and also with duo partners. "Every Time 2 Fools Collide" v Kenny Rogers was one of my favourites. Ns still remember hearing around her car accident on august 30, 1991. At very first it was reported she wasn"t serious hurt. As soon as I heard top top Sept 4 that she had died, i couldn"t believe it. Ns still love hearne to her songs.
