"Broken Lips", 2010
Style: Alternative, psychedelic rock with trance influence
Album: Lucha Rock (Battle Rock), 2012
Country: Mexico

Listen:

Zoé is a Mexican psychedelic rock group that utilizes string instruments, slow drum beats, and a xylophone. Labios Rotos ("Broken Lips") is a short little love song asking a lover for their damaged lips, promising to care for them. Listen to it at YouTube here.

Also, today is Mexico independence day! It is not May 5th; tell your friends. Yesterday marked the independence day of several South American countries. Yesterday also began Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15) in the United States, proclaimed by President Lyndon B. Johnson and approved by Congress in 1968. See the census.gov website for statistics on the Latino/Hispanic population.

Translation:

Regalame tu corazón y dejame entrar
A ese lugar... donde nacen las flores,
Donde nace el amor.
