You know, Ricky Martin, Mark Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Christina Aguilera, Santana, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado and them.
(Admittedly, the definition of "Latin" is kinda stretched for this. Isn't Nelly Portuguese-Canadian?)
This is actually something I've been thinking about for a while myself. I think that Al should just do it as a straight-ahead conjunto-style (think Flaco Jimenez) polka. Not that Tejano isn't a good idea, but Tejano uses waaay too much synthesizer (IMHO) to be really good polka.
And if he didn't do it as a polka medley, he should do it as a style parody, in the same vein that he did w/ zydeco on MBILWEV.
