"Eo oh oh oh eo eo.."?

Recommended Posts

I know which song ou mean! And I've been trying to find it all over the internet, but i can't find it anywhere either! I've asked a Turkish DJ about it,, but he didn't know what I meant. I have the same problema as you, don't know the lyrics either, don't know the language :: HELP!!!! :help:

By any chance was the song a vocal version of "Tequila"?

"Tequila" by The Champs in 1958 is an instrumental featuring a funky sax burping out a rhythm that could conceivably be vocalized as your "eo oh oh oh eo oh".

The only spoken word in the whole song is "Tequila!"

It was featured in a Pee Wee Herman movie, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, I think. That was about what 10 or 15 years ago?

@Kiana

I do some dance class and there are dance parties on Saturdays, where this song is played sometimes. I will ask the DJ next time, when I don´t forget to do it.

Oh, yes, thank you! I hope it's the right song :D

No, I don't think that's the song. They only sing "Tequila" once or maybe twice in the song. And I believe it's very new. But thanks anyway! I wish I could sing it to you, hehe, because i kind of know the lyrics in the refrain. But unfortunatly I can't make any words out of it.. :(

Here is the answer : "Milk & Sugar - Canto Del Pilon ft. Maria Marquez
 

I hope that's the song she's looking for.

The version that Kiana heard would have been a different version, since she asked the question in 2004 and Milk & Sugar didn't do their remix of this song until 2013.

Here's some versions I found.

Quinteto Contrapunto did a version in the '60s:

"Canto de Pilon" - Quinteto Contrapunto

 

Maria Marquez did a version in the '80s:

"Canto del Pilon" - Maria Marquez and Frank Harris

 

Milk & Sugar did a remix of Maria and Frank's '80s version in 2013:

"Canto del Pilon" - Remix by Milk & Sugar feat. Maria Marquez (2013)

 

There's also this extended version by Russian Percussion band, Sambateria.

"Canto Del Pilon" - Sambateria

 

The song is a Venezuela folk song from long ago.

There have been many versions from different artists throughout the years.

 

Kiana,

If you see this post after all these years, type "Canto del Pilon" or "Canto de Pilon" into the search box on youtube and you can listen to many versions from different artists.

If this is the song you were looking for, I hope you can find the version you heard during your summer stay in Turkey.
