Song of the Week - Mexican Wrestler by Jill Sobule

Jill Sobule is an artist which I like but I'm not sure why I know her. It's not like she's had many, or any, big hits. She had a semi-hit in 1995 with a song called "I Kissed A Girl". This is not the same as the song by Katy Perry. When I lived in Philadelphia I listened to a public station called WXPN. They played a very broad spectrum of music. I'm pretty sure I must have heard her there. I have her 2001 compilation album, I Never Learned To Swim.

This song combines what are maybe the two things I like about her, very personal songs done with a hint of humor.
