INSP Vendor Playlist: Alberto Ferro (Factor S, Montevideo, Uruguay)

Luis Alberto Spinetta – ‘Muchacha (Ojos de Papel)’

Alberto Ferro, 63, sells Factor S outside the University of Sociology in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo. ‘Muchacha (Ojos de Papel)’, or ‘Girl (Paper Eyes)’, by Argentine singer Luis Alberto Spinetta, doesn’t necessarily hold much special meaning to Alberto, “it’s just that the lyrics speak to me. I like what he says, and how he says it, this story of a man telling the one he loves not to leave, but to stay and be looked after.”
