SONG: La Salvavidas

Aug 27, 2015

La Salvavidas is a song from my first album, Billy la Bufanda y Amigos.    It's a catchy little song about a boy who falls in love with a lifeguard.  It was very much inspired The Sandlot, a great little movie that I've seen far more times that I'd like to admit.  

LA SALVAVIDAS: 

When I write music these days, I always plan the video and song at the same time.  However, back when I wrote La Salvavidas, the music was the only thing I was thinking about.  That said, I occasionally go back and retroactively make a video to fit with an old song (which is what I did with ¿Puedo ir al baño? for example), but sometimes I think that the music doesn't really require any visuals.  In this case, I don't really know what a video would add to La Salvavidas, and therefore have no plans to make one at this time.
