Happy Cinco de Mayo! The holiday that celebrates freedom and democracy commemorates the Mexican army's defeat over the French in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. It's also a day to dominate your local bar's Mexican karaoke competition (yep, that's a real thing) or patronize the best Mexican restaurant in town. Also, you should probably take a few tequila shots in Mexico's honor, and for that, we've compiled a playlist featuring the best songs about tequila. They're not all meant for the dance floor -- ahem, Alanis Morisette -- but they do make for great background music while throwing a few back. Enjoy! (And please drink responsibly.)
