Back when I was buying up lots of Latin music to use in “Kingpin,” I stumbled across a Colombian band called Aterciopelados (which translates as “The Velvety Ones”). Turns out they’re a big deal in the “Rock en Español” scene.
The song I wanted to use, if I had made more episodes, is “Luz Azul,” from the band’s 2001 album “Gozo Poderoso.” I imagined a tracking shot of a woman’s bikini-clad hips, swaying as she walked beside a luxurious swimming pool, with this guitar hook playing on the soundtrack.
I recently found the music video for “Luz Azul” on YouTube. It’s trippy, and I like it. And the song is just as cool as I remember it.
