I'm very pleased with the quality and sound of this song. I was pleasantly surprised to find an album in which the songwriter, Jose Alfredo Jimenez, sings his own songs (it's a treat because many of these songs were made famous by Pedro Infante, Jorge Negrete, or Javier Solis). So what I love most about this song it's that Jose Alfredo Jimenez is an earthy singer (according to wiki, he's a self-taught musician who didn't know how to read sheet music when he began writing songs). If any of this is true, it makes me admire the songwriter even more. He's the underdog to the big guys (who took all the glory--the Pedro, Jorge, and Javier were the lady killers in the movies). If you listen to Pedro's version of the song, his voice is much more velvety, smooth, and profound. Jose's version is earthy, raw emotion, a voice of the people so to speak. If this makes any difference to you try to find both versions for comparison.

Anyway, the way I see this song: it's a declaration of love under the moon and stars. Not just a "what a lovely night, oh, and I love you"'s a "all that I have and all that I am is yours...that's part of the second verse of the song. Considered a Ranchera (and many times performed by a Mariachi) "deja que salga la luna" is in the huapango style. I wish I could find more versions of this song with just one or two guitars only instead of a full Mariachi ensemble.

If you've never heard the song in its entirety, find it on you tube for free--if you're hesitant on buying the song alone. You'll see that the song starts in a fast tempo than the rest of the song. It's quite a sexy transition (from the fast beginning to the slower first verse). then after the chorus, it's picks up again in tempo before slowing down again for the second verse.
