Review

  • The story in the lyrics of “Salvapantallas” by Andres Cepeda is about a man who is deeply in love with a woman and does not want her to leave him. He says that he does not care about anything else in the world, as long as he has her by his side. He compares her to his screensaver, meaning that she is always in his mind and vision. He begs her not to go, even if everything else is taken away from him. He says that without her, he would die, and he could not sing or love. He says that if she stays, he will stay with her for the rest of his life. He praises her love as the armor that wins his battles.

  • The song makes me feel a mix of emotions, such as admiration, passion, devotion, and fear. I admire the intensity of the man’s love for the woman, and how he expresses it with poetic words and metaphors. I feel the passion that he has for her, and how he values her more than anything else. I also sense his devotion to her, and how he is willing to sacrifice everything for her. However, I also feel some fear for him, because he seems to depend too much on her, and he might lose himself if she leaves him. He seems to have no other source of happiness or meaning in his life.

  • The song does not include explicit themes, but it does imply a strong sexual attraction between the lovers. For example, when he says “si te acuestas cerquita del frío, yo me aguanto”, he suggests that he wants to sleep with her and warm her up. The song is not a fun or sad song, but rather a romantic and dramatic one. It conveys a sense of urgency and desperation, as well as admiration and gratitude.

  • The song relates to the YouTube video 1 in a creative way. The video is an animated clip that shows a journey through the mind of Cepeda, who is represented by a cartoon character. He is always accompanied by a woman, who is his screensaver. The video shows different scenarios that reflect the lyrics of the song, such as a beach, a moonlit night, a boat, a battlefield, and a cathedral. The video also uses colors and symbols to convey the emotions of the song, such as red for passion, blue for sadness, and white for purity.
