Accordion, Instrument of the Gods In the News

Chicks dig accordions

[ via Eldon Brown ] Here’s an excerpt from an interview with Gloria Estefan:

Music was her only refuge. It led to an invitation to sing at a wedding, where she would meet her future husband.

[NBC interviewer Matt] Lauer: “You said the first time you laid eyes on Emilio, he was wearing brown shorts and playing the accordion.”

Estefan: [Laughter] “Yes.”

Lauer: “Now, that is not usually the opening line of a romance novel, okay?”

Estefan: “And he was playing “Do the Hustle” on the accordion. Now that was sexy and brave.”

I tell you, chicks dig accordion players, especially if they break free of the shackles of polka.
