The single reached number seven on the bestseller list and was subsequently released in a maxi-single format , also including the instrumental version of the song and on the B side the songs An African on the Gran Vía and Dub .
It was released again as a single in 1989, in the live version included on the album Escueladecalor. The direct of Radio Futura .
The theme was re-recorded by the group, accentuating the funky influence for the album Tierra para baile (1992). It was renamed The School of Heat and was released again as a single.
The cover of the single reproduces an arm holding a bow with an arrow pointing to the Carrión Building .
A video clip of Escuela de Calor would be made. It would be carried out as part of a project of the television program La age de oro by Paloma Chamorro , which provided the means for the band itself to do it, being one of the first in Spanish music. [ 5 ]
The video clip takes place in a dark environment where the members of the group, elegantly disguised as nightclub staff, wait for unsuspecting clients to arrive at this "heat school", with malicious intentions.
