Blondie. Dreaming.

noviembre 24, 2009

Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Dreaming.

· · ·

Letra:

When I met you in the restaurant, you could tell I was no debutante, you asked me what’s my pleasure, aA movie or a measure? I’ll have a cup of tea and tell you of my dreaming, dreaming is free.

I don’t want to live on charity, pleasure’s real or is it fantasy? Reel to reel is living rarity, people stop and stare at me We just walk on by – we just keep on dreaming, feet feet, walking a two mile, meet meet, meet me at the turnstile, I never met him, I’ll never forget him.

Dream dream, even for a little while, dream dream, filling up an idle hour, fade away, radiate. I sit by and watch the river flow, I sit by and watch the traffic go, imagine something of your very own, something you can have and hold.

I’d build a road in gold just to have some dreaming, dreaming is free, dreaming, dreaming is free, dreaming, dreaming is free.

Letra:

I was so tired of being upset, always wanting something I never could get, life’s an illusion love is a dream, but I don’t know what it is. Everybody’s happy nowadays, everybody’s happy nowadays.

I was so tired of being upset, always wanting something I never could get, life’s an illusion love is a dream, but I don’t know what it is ‘cos. Everybody’s happy nowadays, everybody’s happy nowadays. Life’s an illusion love is the dream, but I don’t know what it is, everyone’s saying things to me, but I know it’s okay okay. Everybody’s happy nowadays, everybody’s happy nowadays. Everybody’s happy nowadays, everybody’s happy nowadays.

Life’s an illusion love is a dream, life’s an illusion love is the dream, life’s the illusion love is a dream, life’s the illusion love is the dream. Everybody’s happy nowadays, everybody’s happy nowadays, todays are good.

Bet you are tired of being upset, always wanting something you never can get, Life’s no illusion love’s not a dream, now I know just what it is. Everybody’s happy nowadays, everybody’s happy nowadays.

The Undertones. (She’s a) Runaround.

noviembre 4, 2009


Video en directo (Paul McLoone como cantante). Canción.

Nombre: (She’s a) Runaround.

· · ·

Letra:

She doesn’t know what she’s feeling inside, she’ll never get what she’s never had, she wants to leave home but she can’t get away, always on her own every single day. Cos she’s a run-around – what a total disaster, she’s a run-around – she’s got nothing to do, she’s a run-around – doesn’t know what she’s after, she’s a run-around – she hasn’t a clue.

She wishes she could live in a world of her own, go someplace where she’s not known, there’s no more her to do any good, can’t get the satisfaction she wishes she could. Cos she’s a run-around … She doesn’t know what she’s feeling inside …Cos she’s a run-around.

The Clash. Hateful.

octubre 18, 2009

Video de imágenes con la canción. Canción.

Nombre: Hateful.

· · ·

Letra:

Well, I got a friend who’s a man, what man? The man who keeps me from the lovely, he gives me what I need, what you need? What you got? I need it all so badly. Oh, anything I want he gives it to me, anything I want he gives it, but not for free, it’s hateful, and it’s paid for and I’m so grateful to be nowhere.

This year I’ve lost some friends, some friends? What friends? I dunno, I ain’t even noticed. You see, I gotta go out again, again? My friend, I gotta see that mainman. I killed all my nerves, my nerves? What swerves? And I can’t drive so steady. I’ve lost my memory, my mind? Behind! I can’t see so clearly.

Oh, anything I want he gives it to me, anything I want he gives it, but not for free, it’s hateful, and it’s paid for and I’m so grateful to be nowhere.

Cure. Fire in Cairo.

septiembre 24, 2009

Video de versión en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Fire in Cairo.

· · ·

Letra:

Slowly fading blue, the eastern hollows catch, the dying sun, night time follows, silent and black, mirror pool mirrors, the lonely place, where I meet you.

See your head, in the fading light, and through the dark, your eyes shine bright, and burn like fire, burn like fire in Cairo, burn like fire, burn like fire in Cairo.

Shifting crimson veil, silken hips slide, under my hand, swollen lips whisper my name, and I yearn, you take me in your arms, and start to burn.

F.I.R.E.I.N.C.A.I.R.O, then the heat disappears, and the mirage, fades away…

F.I.R.E.I.N.C.A.I.R.O, burn like a fire in Cairo, burn like a fire, blaze like a fire in Cairo, blaze like a fire, flare with a wonderful light, like a fire in Cairo, burn like fire, burn like, fire in Cairo.

Joy Division. Disorder

septiembre 24, 2009

Video de versión en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Disorder.

· · ·

Letra:

I’ve been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand, could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man? These sensations barely interest me for another day, I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away.

It’s getting faster, moving faster now, it’s getting out of hand, on the tenth floor, down the back stairs, it’s a no man’s land, lights are flashing, cars are crashing, getting frequent now, I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it out somehow.

What means to you, what means to me, and we will meet again, I’m watching you, I’m watching her, I’ll take no pity from your friends, who is right, who can tell, and who gives a damn right now, until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know, until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know, until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know, I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling, I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling. Feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling.
