The Adverts. One chord wonders.

noviembre 13, 2009


Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: One chord wonders.

· · ·

Letra:

I wonder what we´ll play for you tonight, something heavy or something light, something to set your soul alight. I wonder how we´ll answer when you say, “we don´t like you go away, come back when you´ve learnt to play”. I wonder what we´ll do when things go wrong, when we´re half-way through, our favourite song.

We look up and the audience has gone, will we feel a little bit obscure, think “we´re not needed here,”we must be new wave – they´ll like us next year”. The Wonders don´t care, we don´t give a damn.

Nombre: (My baby does) Good sculptures.

· · ·

Letra:

She don’t care, for one night stands, and naughty boys, with sweaty hands, she got a thing, about carving wood, or shaping a figure, from a lump of mud. Don’t love my baby for her pouting lips, don’t love my baby for her curvy hips, I love my baby ‘cos she does good sculptures yeah.

Her fingernails, rouge talens fonce, they cut my skin, more than once, she is a thing, made of solid love, she shape my body, like a lump of mud. Don’t love my baby for her pouting lips, don’t love my baby for her curvy hips, I love my baby ‘cos she does good sculptures yeah.

She is cool, in her studio, E-I-Addi, Add-EE-O, she Killa Dilla, she cut it smooth, always looking, like she never loose. Don’t love my baby for her pouting lips, don’t love my baby for her curvy hips, I love my baby ‘cos she does good sculptures yeah (repetición)…

The Police. Peanuts.

octubre 28, 2009


Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Peanuts.

· · ·

Letra:

It’s all a game, you’re not the same, your famous name, the price of fame. O no — try to liberate me, I said o no — stay and irritate me, I said o no — try to elevate me, I said o no — just a fallen hero. Don’t wanna hear about the drugs you’re taking, don’t wanna read about the love you’re making, don’t wanna hear about the life you’re faking, don’t wanna read about the muck they’re raking.

You sang your song, for much too long, the songs they’re wrong, the bread has gone. O no — try to liberate me, I said o no — stay and irritate me, I said o no — try to elevate me, I said o no — just a fallen hero. Don’t wanna hear about the drugs you’re taking, don’t wanna read about the love you’re making, don’t wanna hear about the life you’re faking, don’t wanna read about the muck they’re raking.

It’s all a game, you’re not the same, your famous name, the price of fame. O no — try to liberate me, I said o no — stay and irritate me, I said o no — try to elevate me, I said o no — just a fallen hero. Don’t wanna find out what you’ve been taking, don’t wanna read about the love you’re making, don’t wanna hear about the life you’re faking, don’t wanna read about the muck they’re raking. Peanuts, peanuts, peanuts.

You’re takin’ me back, I remember it well, you’re takin’ me back, it’s so easy to tell, you’re takin’ me back, I remember it well, you’re takin’ me back. A long, long, long time ago, a long, long, long, time ago, you, you let me down-you didn’t think of me, I won’t forget what you did to me-no, you were nice not to say it, now my heart it’s breakin’.

A long time ago-a long time ago, a long time ago- you were breaking, my heart I never found all the parts. A long time ago-a long time ago, A long time ago-oh-oh-oh, you’re takin’ me back, I remember it well, you’re takin’ me back, it’s so easy to tell. You’re takin’ me back, it’s written on my face, you’re takin’ me back, it’s so easy to tell- ‘cause you’re, takin’ me back.

I remember it well, you’re takin’ me back, it’s written on my face, you’re takin’ me back, I remember it well, you’re takin’ me back, a long,long,long time ago, a long,long,long time ago, a long,long,long time ago, a long,long,long time ago- o, you’re takin’ me back.

Neil Young. Lotta Love.

octubre 8, 2009

Canción.

Nombre: Lotta love.

· · ·

Letra:

It’s gonna take a lotta love, to change the way things are. It’s gonna take a lotta love, or we won’t get too far. So if you look in my direction, and we don’t see eye to eye, my heart needs protection, and so do I. It’s gonna take a lotta love, to get us thru the night. It’s gonna take a lotta love, to make things work out right.

So if you are out there waitin’, I hope you show up soon, ‘cause my heart needs relatin’, not solitude. Gotta lotta love, gotta lotta love. It’s gonna take a lotta love, to change the way things are. It’s gonna take a lotta love, or we won’t get too far.

It’s gonna take a lotta love, to change the way things are. It’s gonna take a lotta love, or we won’t get too far.

Neil Young. Going Back.

septiembre 27, 2009

Video de la canción.

Nombre: Going Back.

· · ·

Letra:

In a foreign land, there were creatures at play, running hand in hand, leading nowhere to stay, driven to the mountains high, they were sunken, in the cities deep, livin’ in my sleep.

I feel like goin’ back, back where, there’s nowhere to stay, when fire fills the sky, I’ll still remember that day, these rocks I’m climbin’ down, have already left the ground, careening through space.

I used to build these buildings, I used to walk next to you, their shadows tore us apart, and now we do what we do, driven to the mountains high, sunken in the cities deep, livin’ in our sleep.

I feel like goin’ back, back where there’s nowhere to stay.
