Mariachi Band Takes On ‘Grease’ Song In Unexpected Cover

If you love genre-bending covers of classic songs, you’ll fall hard for Mariachi Entertainment System’s version of “Hopelessly Devoted To You.”

A mariachi-style version of the ballad, performed by Olivia Newton-John as Sandy in the 1978 hit film “Grease,” was posted on the band’s Facebook page on May 24. The video had racked up more than 291k views and 6,700 shares by Tuesday afternoon. 

Though the San Antonio-based group’s cover is a departure from their usual work, which typically consists of mariachi versions of video game music, Facebook commenters are already making requests for similar covers. 

Mariachi Entertainment System is just one of many bands that have given popular movie and television tunes a mariachi twist. Watch their cover of “Hopelessly Devoted To You” in the video above.
