Can anyone give me a tip where to find examples of well-known cheesy Mexican TV or movie themes?

I'm touring with my (Dutch) Hammond funk outfit in Mexico next year. We would like to put a typical and well-known Mexican song, preferably something like a cheesy movie or soap (TV) theme, in our set and funk it up a little.
We try to do something similar in every country we tour, people tend to love it. However, I do not know people that have both knowledge of Mexico and music.
A few things are important:
1. It must be really well known in Mexico.
2. The song is preferably old (sixties / seventies vibe) and has a catchy and easy recognizable melody.
3. It is no problem if it is very cheesy, but preferably the song can be played in a high tempo with e.g. a break beat or a straight beat.
4. I should be able to find / buy it somewhere on the Internet.
Examples for the US would be:
- Theme from High Noon
- Hang 'm High
- Theme from Dirty Harry
- Them from Starsky & Hutch
- The Man from UNCLE
- Theme from Spiderman
Thanks for your help!
