"Life Is for Living (Viva la Vida)"

Carlos Santana has always been a citizen of the world. This particular song exemplifies this. It's all about South Africa and apartheid, which was dominating current events at the time this album came out. There is a specific mention of Nelson Mandela, who was released from prison in February 1990 once the ban on the African National Congress was lifted by then South African president, F.W. de Klerk.

The song is standard later Santana fare. Nothing to write home about here.

The Bell Score: 3.45452
