El Matador was one of those songs that kept us awake when we were trying to finish essays, do research, and/or take a break in college. Our neighbors in the dorm would open the door to their room and ask us to put more volume. I am sure it has been used for many things, but I remember watching Grosse Pointe Blank and El Matador was used in the movie, which was a nice surprise. If I am not mistaken, it was the only song in the soundtrack that was in Spanish. Personally, this is one of the most played songs in our iTunes. :-)
