When Pee-Wee Herman Forever Changed The Song ‘Tequila’ by The Champs

If you grew up in the late 80s and early 90s than you most likely watched Pee Wee’s Playhouse. If you didn’t you still may have caught Pee Wee’s Big Adventure. If you were a little late to the party there was still a chance for you to catch Big Top Pee Wee. Let’s face it – Pee Wee Herman had a very similar run as Don Mattingly did on the Yankees from ’84-’88.  He was so dominant he could make songs that no one would have ever heard of, famous.

Cue ‘Tequila’ by The Champs. First, the song isn’t that bad. And it was famous in it’s own right.  In fact, it’s a catchy little tune that has been a getting some serious burn since the late 1950’s. So to say Pee Wee Herman made the song famous isn’t 100% accurate.. However, to say Pee Wee Herman changed the song for many the day he danced to it in Pee Wee’s Big Adventure is dead on. I will never, ever be able to listen to this song again without thinking about Pee Wee dominating the bar in white platform shoes from his classic movie.

When you create music you want people to enjoy it. You want it to become popular. What you don’t want is it to be forever associated with Pee Wee Herman – I don’t care who you are…. wait a minute.. Pee Wee is awesome, of course you do.
