In the new music video from Winnipeg’s The Mariachi Ghost, Susana, mom and dad seek to separate young lovers. But cutting heart strings is a dangerous approach.

Mira las palabras:

Susana.
Tu y el alba.

Susana
You and dawn

Tu y el sol,
Tu y el sol.

You and the sun
You and the sun

Susana.
Te doy mi alma.
Te la doy,
Te la doy!

Susana
I give you my soul
I give it to you
I give it to you!

Susana veras!
Que este mundo será.
Tu y yo,
Tu y yo.

Susana you’ll see

That this world, it will be

You and me
You and me

Oh oh.

Pedro Sal de Ahí
La Culebra te saldrá
Las cosas que hacen
los hombres en la oscuridad.

Pedro come out of there
A snake could come out
Oh the things that men do
In the dark.

Pedro Sal de ahí
La culebra te saldrá
Las cosas que hacen
los hombres en la oscuridad.

Pedro come out of there
A snake could come out
Oh the things that men do
In the dark.

Una montaña de penas
es lo que nos quedó.
Una montaña de deudas
es lo que nos dejó.

A mountain of sorrows
Is what is left.
A mountain of debt
Is what he left

Haciendo un hombre sin nombre
un hombre sin nombre
Haciendo un nombre sin nombre
Un hombre sin nombre

Making a man with no name
A man with no name
Making a man with no name
A man with no name

Oh oh.

OK, so huh? What’s it all about?

Band leader and video director Jorge Requena:

True love is madness. Finding that perfect partner that exists as a mirror that makes you feel good but at the same time never good enough is a state of uncertainty that becomes the ultimate motivator. Attaining this love is the tallest mountain top and having that love taken away is a pain worse than death. ‘Susana’ mixes equal parts epic western soundtracks, the drama of Mexican diva Rocio Durcal and quintessential Rock en Español moments to capture these feelings of rapture and madness. In the video, Susana is a bird trapped in a gilded cage, the quintessential Latin American rich girl wanting nothing more than her freedom; To love and live on her own terms. But fortune isn’t freedom and the trappings of her family and class rob her of true love and ultimately leads to tragedy. Love is made of the things that are taken away.
