Riviera Nayarit Inspires California Song Writer

Sayulita,’ a Tale of Mysterious Love by Smitty West, Celebrates Beauty, Passion of Mexico’s Newest Vacation Destination
Aug. 1, 2008 - PRLog -- Long before the rest of the world discovered its pleasures, Smitty West was enchanted by the Pacific sunsets, the beaches and the timeless charm of Riviera Nayarit. Now the Californian singer/song writer and keyboard player for the rock band Myridian has captured not only the beauty but the intoxicating passion and mysterious appeal of Mexico’s newest vacation destination in song.

“Sayulita,” along with “Posiblemente,” is featured on West’s solo album, “Your World.” Both songs were inspired by numerous visits with friends on the beaches of Nayarit and written there. “Sayulita,” named for a delightfully bohemian Nayarit art colony, with its beachfront alfresco restaurants, stylish shops and fine art galleries, tells of sunsets, swaying bodies, dark eyes and the sea.

In addition to his writing and performing, West is the founder of Ojai Songwriters Anonymous, a collaborative support group of songwriters in California. He also has been chosen as principal composer for Christopher Devine’s high-def film, Playing With Sticks. The album “Your World” features 12 original songs by West spanning the genres of folk, rock, Latin, metal and country.

Lyrics for “Sayulita”

Oh Sayulita, mi senorita Te encanta cantar.

You came to me in an afternoon dream, and the sky on fire. Your dark body sways, commanding the music to start. Enchanted by passion, your song casts a spell in the twilight. The cool evening air cannot quench the fire in my heart.

The days melt away and the evening, I pray, will go on and on. Into the hours when only your voice fills the night. “Te amo,” I plead, as your song goes higher and higher. But in your dark eyes there burns an unreachable light.

I know not whether the future can ever release my love. For now I know clearly, your song was never for me. The flame in your heart…I see now that no man can own it. El canto del mar…you only can sing to the sea.
