For me, this is one of those times where the cover outdoes the original song. An alternative Mexican band, Santa Sabina, recorded Sueño con serpientes (I dream of snakes) both in a studio version and in their MTV Unplugged show. The original song by Cuban troubadour Silvio Rodríguez is quite minimalist by comparison. Whatever version you prefer, it is truly memorable.
