Status Quo. When my mind is not live.

noviembre 25, 2009

Canción en video.

Nombre: When my mind is not live.

· · ·

Letra:

When my mind is not live I see you there before me, every night in my mind your face flies by me, then the morning light comes to bring reality, but my dream lingers on a little while for me.

Then I wake to see a world full of misery, lots of people rushing by, never know what they wanna be. Soon the day draws to it’s end and pretty soon I’ll be, back with you in my mind because I want to see.

When my mind is not live I see you there before me, every night in my mind your face flies by me.

Os Mutantes. Trem fantasma.

noviembre 23, 2009


Canción.

Nombre: Trem fantasma.

· · ·

Letra:

Quatrocentos cruzeiros, velhos compram com medo, das mãos do bilheteiro, as entradas do trem fantasma. Ele e a namorada, ele não pensa em nada, ela fica assustada.

Quatrocentos cruzeiros, de força arrastam, o rapaz e a moça para, o lugar em cinemascope brilhante, a montanha gigante de generais verdejantes, e aparece distante, o trem no espelho brilhante, desde o primeiro beijo, arrebenta o espelho.

Quatrocentos cruzeiros, quatrocentos morcegos de força, o beijo, o rapaz e a moça, o trem dentro d’água, a piscina parada. Ela não pensa em nada, ele pensa e não diz, onde tem muita água tudo é feliz. O primeiro beijo, quatrocentos cruzeiros, zé quarenta HP’s de emoção, o Zé do Caixão, traz os bichos da criação, até o portão e, terminou a sessão.

Quatrocentos cruzeiros, velhos compram com medo, ele e a namorada, ela não pensa em nada, ele pensa em segredo.

Love Sculpture. On the road again.

noviembre 21, 2009


Canción.

Nombre: On the road again.

· · ·

Letra:

Well, I’m so tired of crying, but i’m out on the road again – I’m on the road again. Well, I’m so tired of crying, but I’m out on the road again – I’m on the road again. I ain’t got no woman just to call my special friend. You know the first time I traveled out in the rain and snow – In the rain and snow. You know the first time I traveled out in the rain and snow – In the rain and snow. I didn’t have no payroll, not even no place to go.

And my dear mother left me when I was quite young – When I was quite young. And my dear mother left me when I was quite Young – When I was quite young. She said “Lord, have mercy on my wicked son.” Take a hint from me, mama, please don’t you cry no more – Don’t you cry no more. Take a hint from me, mama, please don’t you cry no more – Don’t you cry no more. ‘Cause it’s soon one morning down the road I’m going. But I aint going down that long old lonesome road all by myself. But I aint going down that long old lonesome road all by myself. I can’t carry you, baby, gonna carry somebody else.

Dr John. I walk on guilded splinters.

noviembre 18, 2009


Video en direco. Canción.

Nombre: I walk on guilded splinters.

· · ·

Letra:

Some people think they jive me, but I know they must be crazy, don’t see dey misfortune, guess they just too lazy. J’suis the Grand Zombie, my yellow belt of choison, ain’t afraid of no tom cat, fill my brains with poison. Walk thru the fire, fly thru the smoke, see my enemy, at the end of dey rope. Walk on pins and needles, see what they can do, walk on gilded splinters, with the king of the Zulu.

Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon, walk on gilded splinters, kon kon, the kiddy kon kon, walk on gilded splinters. ‘Ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta), ‘ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta), ‘ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta), ‘ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta).

Roll outta my coffin, drink poison in my chalice, pride begins to fade, and y’all feel my malice. Put gris gris on your doorstep, soon you’ll be in the gutter, I can melt your heart like butter, a-a-and I can make you stutter.

Kon kon, the kiddy kon kon, walk on gilded splinters, kon kon, the kiddy kon kon, walk on gilded splinters. ‘Ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta), ‘ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta), ‘ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta), ‘ti Alberta (‘ti Alberta).

The Byrds. Goin’ back.

noviembre 17, 2009


Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Goin’ back.

· · ·

Letra:

I think I’m going back to the things that I learned so well in my youth, I think I’m returning to those days when I was young enough to know the truth, now there are no games to only pass the time, no more electric trains, no more trees to climb, but thinking young and growing older is no sin, and I can play the game of life to win.

I can recall the time when I wasn’t ashamed to reach out to a friend, now I think I’ve got a lot more than just my toys to lend, now there’s more to do than watch my sailboat glide, and every day can be a magic carpet ride, a little bit of courage is all we lack, so catch me if you can, I’m goin’ back.

Now there’s more to do than watch my sailboat glide, but every day can be a magic carpet ride, a little bit of courage is all we lack, so catch me if you can, I’m goin’ back.

Blue Cheer. Come and get it.

noviembre 14, 2009


Canción.

Nombre: Come and get it.

· · ·

Letra:

Let me hear, let me hear the way you feel, I been gone so long, I been riding on a spinning wheel, flashin’ and scratchin’, just a-feeling my pulse, yellin’ and screaming and pound on the wall. Coast to coast I been travelin’ and I got to get more, I been up all night just trying to make a score, hustle it, so fuss it, just make it some chick, pickin’ on dolls and makin’ that trick.

She’s the piece of heart and I’m screamin’ and kickin’ it down, faster and harder, keep on drivin’ it down, the line, Lookin’ for head and feelin’ so free, rubbin’ my own in this ecstasy. Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me if you see, it’s the only way, the only way that I want it to be, I can’t explain, it’s just not fate, I got to keep on, this time I just ain’t late. I hope you understand, I’m in love, I’m in love with you, give ya anything, anything that I’m able to, the way I feel, it’s easy to see, let me hear the way it oughta be.

The Nazz. Hello it’s me.

noviembre 7, 2009


Canción.

Nombre: Hello it’s me.

· · ·

Letra:

Hello, it’s me, I’ve thought about us for a long, long time, maybe I think too much but something’s wrong, there’s something here that doesn’t last too long, maybe I shouldn’t think of you as mine. Seeing you, or seeing anything as much as I do, I take for granted that you’re always there, I take for granted that you just don’t care ,sometimes I can’t help seeing all the way through.

It’s important to me that you know you are free, ‘cause I never want to make you change for me, think of me, you know that I’d be with you if I could, I’ll come around to see you once in a while, or if I ever need a reason to smile, and spend the night if you think I should. Sometimes I thought it wasn’t so bad.

The Sallyangie. Children of the sun.

noviembre 2, 2009


Canción en video.

Nombre: Children of the sun.

· · ·

Letra:

Sunrise shimmers the city walls with yellow light, sunrise feeling with golden fingers, the edges of the night, there’s a hush in the air, in his silver hair, king Solomon is my father. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah’s sending children of the sun, I watch the boats go by as evening colours the sand, the rain is bringing tears from my lovers land, I watch the silver stars melt in love with the sea, I cry to the wind bring back my lover to me, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah’s sending children of the sun.

My lover’s hands are whiter than the wings of a dove, his hair is softest fire that fall in heavenly love, his smile is a blue birds cry on a midsummer’s morn, his kiss is the touch of the sun before the earth’s new dawn. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah’s sending children of the sun.

My lover used to bring me stars he found in the sand, I would lay the singing skies inside his tiny hand, tonight the moon is dripping on the coloured river we knew, o take me where he lies cryin’ in the mornin’ dew. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah’s sending children of the sun, I watch the boats go by as evening colours the sand, the rain is bringing tears from my lovers land, I watch the silver stars melt in love with the sea, I cry to the wind bring back my lover to me. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah’s sending children of the sun.
