Calibre 50 is a Regional Mexican band founded in the city of Mazatlán, Sinaloa in 2010. Their style is Norteño-Banda, a hybrid of Norteño, which uses an electric bass or tololoche for the low notes and replaces it with a sousaphone (tuba), which is typically used in Banda for the bass notes. Calibre 50 first achieved notoriety for their controversial songs; among them corridos. Their first nationwide hit was "El tierno se fue" ("The nice guy is gone") in 2011, a ranchera written by Lalo Ayala which contains many sexual innuendos. Throughout its history, the band has recorded different styles of songs such as rancheras, corridos, ballads, cumbias, charangas, boleros, and huapangos. In March 2017, Calibre 50 made history when the band became the first Regional Mexican act to perform on the Conan show on an episode that took place in Mexico City. In 2023, they held a record with 23 No. 1 songs on the Billboard Regional Mexican Airplay chart.
1 Si Te Pudiera Mentir (If I Could Lie)
Si Te Pudiera Mentir (If I Could Lie)
Si te pudiera mentir
Te diría que aquí
Todo va marchando muy bien
Pero no es así
If I could lie to you
I'd tell you that here
Everything is going very well
But it's not like that
The song "Si Te Pudiera Mentir" by Calibre 50 is a heartfelt ballad about missing someone deeply. The lyrics express the desire to lie and say that everything is going well, but the reality is that the singer is struggling without their loved one. The house they are in is just a reminder of the person they are missing, and the darkness of the evenings only adds to their fear and sadness. Despite trying to move on and make changes, the singer cannot forget their love and hopes for their return. The song is a beautiful tribute to the power of love and the pain of separation.
