The Killers – Happy Birthday Guadalupe! – Compact Disc
Happy Birthday Guadalupe is a holiday-themed song by the American rock band The Killers. The song was released in 2009 as part of the charity compilation album “¡Happy Birthday Guadalupe!” The album was a collaborative effort between The Killers, Wild Light, and Mariachi El Bronx, and it features Christmas songs with a unique twist.
Happy Birthday Guadalupe is notable for its blending of rock and mariachi music styles. It tells the story of a man named Guadalupe who is having a difficult time during the Christmas season and reflects on the challenges he faces.
The song was accompanied by a music video that further emphasized the mariachi influence, featuring the band performing in mariachi outfits. The proceeds from the album sales were donated to the charity (RED), which focuses on raising awareness and funds to combat HIV/AIDS in Africa.
Happy Birthday Guadalupe is not one of The Killers’ most well-known songs, it’s a unique and festive addition to their discography, showcasing their willingness to experiment with different musical styles while supporting a charitable cause.
