Aside from having one of my favorite music videos ever (directed by Daniel Gruener), El Camino by Aleks Syntek y La Gente Normal, a Mexican synth pop-rock band, is one of my favorite tracks from the ´90s. I´ve been fortunate enough to see Aleks play this live a couple of times, and it´s always one of my favorite moments  of the show. The bass line blends so perfectly with the drums and percussions, by the way (Sabo Romo, one of Mexico´s most respected bass players, kills it on this track; props also are due to Luis Conte, who plays percussions on this album).

The lyrics, in my humble opinion, describe the notion of personal struggles, faith and perseverance.
