"Tequila" is a song performed by The Champs in 1958. The song appeared in the Miami Vice episode "Better Living Through Chemistry".

NotesEdit

  • "Tequila" only took three weeks to reach the Billboard #1 spot, unusual for any song in that era.
  • The song is looked at as a classic from the "golden age" of rock and roll music, though it was The Champs' only single to make the Billboard Hot 100.
  • Though it has been used frequently in TV shows, movies and commercials, most identify it with the "Pee Wee Dance" from the 1985 movie Pee Wee's Great Adventure.

PerformersEdit

  • Dave Burgess - rhythm guitar
  • Cliff Hills - bass
  • Danny Flores - sax and keyboards (and vocalized "Tequila")
  • Gene Alden - drums
  • Buddy Bruce - lead guitar
