I hope it rains coffee on the countryside

I had forgotten how much I loved this song. By Juan Luis Guerra originally, but covered here by Café Tacuba and Alejandro Flores. It has such a cornucopia of agricultural events. Oh, to climb down the hill of shelled rice, y continuar el arado con tu querer. It's quite untranslateable, actually. Sorry, I tried.

Barbara's brother is fluent in Spanish. He gave her a cd of Juan Luis Guerrera. Even though she couldn't understand a word of it, she loves the music. She bought others since. So I guess great lyrics would just make it all the better.
