Neil Young. Change your mind.

noviembre 16, 2009


Video en directo (1) y (2). Canción.

Nombre: Change your mind.

· · ·

Letra:

When you get weak, and you need to test your will, when life’s complete, but there’s something missing still, distracting you from this, must be the one you love, must be the one whose magic touch can change your mind, don’t let another day go by, without the magic touch.

Distracting you (change your mind), supporting you (change your mind), embracing you (change your mind), convincing you (change your mind).

When you’re confused and the world has got you down, when you feel used and you just can’t play the clown, protecting you from this must be the one you love, must be the one whose magic touch can change your mind, don’t let another day go by, without the magic touch.

Protecting you (change your mind), restoring you (change your mind), revealing you (change your mind), soothing you (change your mind).

You hear the sound, you wait around and get the word, you see the picture changing everything you’ve heard, destroying you with this must be the one you love, must be the one whose magic touch can change your mind, don’t let another day go by without the magic touch.

Destroying you (change your mind), embracing you (change your mind), protecting you (change your mind), confining you (change your mind), distracting you (change your mind), supporting you (change your mind), distorting you (change your mind), controlling you (change your mind), change your mind (change your mind), change your mind, change your mind (change your mind), change your mind (change your mind).

The morning comes and there’s an odor in the room, the scent of love, more than a million roses bloom, embracing you with this must be the one you love, must be the one whose magic touch can change your mind, don’t let another day go by without the magic touch.

Embracing you (change your mind), concealing you (change your mind), protecting you (change your mind), revealing you (change your mind), change your mind, change your mind (change your mind) (repetición)…

Nombre: Keep me in mind.

· · ·

Letra:

Red from start to end and we can’t hold the feelings which are crossing the brain, strips the cord of a sensible world what’s worse? She left her mark and there were both oh the nature of a scripted curse, kissed my eyes sat on the bed and then said.: frankly dear I’m forced to give it up, tried my hand and now I’ve had enough, even though we have to say goodbye, keep me in mind, keep me in mind, keep me in mind.

Blamed in advance for the past with no bearing on a present tense, all that slack the things that she made when she said, oh dear someday I’m going to be Someone better, picture person me, but ‘til then we’ll call it the end and she asked: frankly dear my breath has had enough, standing afternoon and left at night, even though we have to say goodbye, keep me in mind, keep me in mind, keep me in mind, keep me in mind.

Bob Dylan. Sweetheart like you.

noviembre 11, 2009


Video oficial de la canción.

Nombre: Sweetheart like you.

· · ·

Letra:

Well, the pressure’s down, the boss ain’t here, he gone North, he ain’t around. They say that vanity got the best of him, but he sure left here after sundown. By the way, that’s a cute hat, and that smile’s so hard to resist, but what’s a sweetheart like you doin’ in a dump like this?

You know, I once knew a woman who looked like you, she wanted a whole man, not just a half, she used to call me sweet daddy when I was only a child, you kind of remind me of her when you laugh. In order to deal in this game, got to make the queen disappear, it’s done with a flick of the wrist. What’s a sweetheart like you doin’ in a dump like this?

You know, a woman like you should be at home, that’s where you belong. Watching out for someone who loves you true, who would never do you wrong. Just how much abuse will you be able to take? Well, there’s no way to tell by that first kiss. What’s a sweetheart like you doin’ in a dump like this? You know you can make a name for yourself, you can hear them tires squeal, you can be known as the most beautiful woman who ever crawled across cut glass to make a deal. You know, news of you has come down the line, even before ya came in the door. They say in your father’s house, there’s many mansions, each one of them got a fireproof floor. Snap out of it, baby, people are jealous of you, they smile to your face, but behind your back they hiss. What’s a sweetheart like you doin’ in a dump like this?

Got to be an important person to be in here, honey, got to have done some evil deed, got to have your own harem when you come in the door, got to play your harp until your lips bleed. They say that patriotism is the last refuge, to which a scoundrel clings. Steal a little and they throw you in jail, steal a lot and they make you king. There’s only one step down from here, baby, it’s called the land of permanent bliss. What’s a sweetheart like you doin’ in a dump like this?

Fairport Convention. Autopsy.

noviembre 11, 2009


Canción.

Nombre: Autopsy.

· · ·

Letra:

You must philosophise, but why must you bore me to tears? You’re red around the eyes, you tell me things no one else hears. You spend all your time crying, crying the hours in tears, crying the hours in tears. Come lend your time to me, and you will know that you are free, and when you look at me, don’t think you’re owning what you see, for remember that you’re free, and that’s what you want to be, so just lend your time to me.

You must philosophise, but why must you bore me to tears? You’re red around the eyes, you tell me things no one else hears, you spend all your time crying, crying the hours in tears, crying the hours in to ears.

Graham Nash. Simple man.

noviembre 9, 2009


Video en directo (Con David Crosby). Canción.

Nombre: Simple man.

· · ·

Letra:

I am a simple man, so I sing a simple song, never been so much in love, and never hurt so bad at the same time. I am a simple man, and I play a simple tune, I wish that I could see you once again, across the room like the first time. I just want to hold you I don’t want to hold you down, I hear what you’re saying and you’re spinning my head around, and I can’t make it alone.

The ending of the tale, is the singing of the song, make me proud to be your man only you can make me strong, like the last time. I just want to hold you I don’t want to hold you down, I hear what you’re saying and you’re spinning my head around, and I can’t make it alone.

Grateful Dead. Ripple.

noviembre 5, 2009


Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Ripple.

· · ·

Letra:

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine, and my tunes were played on the harp unstrung, would you hear my voice come thru the music, would you hold it near as it were your own? It’s a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken, perhaps they’re better left unsung. I don’t know, don’t really care, let there be songs to fill the air.

Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow. Reach out your hand if your cup be empty, if your cup is full may it be again, let it be known there is a fountain, that was not made by the hands of men. There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone.

Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow. You who choose to lead must follow, but if you fall you fall alone, if you should stand then whos to guide you? If I knew the way I would take you home. La dee da…

Nombre: You ain’t going nowhere.

Letra:

Clouds so swift, rain won’t lift, gate won’t close, railings froze, get your mind off wintertime, you ain’t goin’ nowhere, whoo-ee! Ride me high, tomorrow’s the day, my bride’s gonna come, oh, oh, are we gonna fly, down in the easy chair!

I don’t care, how many letters they sent, morning came and morning went, pick up your money, and pack up your tent, you ain’t goin’ nowhere, whoo-ee! Ride me high, tomorrow’s the day, my bride’s gonna come, oh, oh, are we gonna fly, down in the easy chair!

Buy me a flute, and a gun that shoots, tailgates and substitutes, strap yourself, to the tree with roots, you ain’t goin’ nowhere, whoo-ee! Ride me high, tomorrow’s the day, my bride’s gonna come, oh, oh, are we gonna fly, down in the easy chair!

Genghis Khan, he could not keep, all his kings, supplied with sleep, we’ll climb that hill no matter how steep, when we get up to it, whoo-ee! Ride me high, tomorrow’s the day, my bride’s gonna come, oh, oh, are we gonna fly, down in the easy chair!

Bruce Springsteen. Thunder Road.

octubre 30, 2009


Video en directo.
Canción.

Nombre: Thunder Road.

· · ·

Letra:

The screen door slams, Mary’s dress sways, like a vision she dances across the porch. As the radio plays, Roy Orbison singing for the lonely, hey that’s me and I want you only, don’t turn me home again, I just can’t face myself alone again. Don’t run back inside, darling you know just what I’m here for, so you’re scared and you’re thinking, that maybe we ain’t that young anymore, show a little faith, there’s magic in the night, you ain’t a beauty, but hey you’re alright, oh and that’s alright with me.

You can hide `neath your covers and study your pain, make crosses from your lovers, throw roses in the rain, waste your summer praying in vain, for a saviour to rise from these streets, well now I’m no hero, that’s understood, all the redemption I can offer, girl, is beneath this dirty hood, with a chance to make it good somehow, hey what else can we do now? Except roll down the window and let the wind blow back your hair, well the night’s busting open, this two lanes will take us anywhere, we got one last chance to make it real, to trade in these wings on some wheels, climb in back, Heaven’s waiting on down the tracks.

Oh-oh come take my hand, we’re riding out tonight to case the promised land, oh-oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, oh Thunder Road, lying out there like a killer in the sun, hey I know it’s late we can make it if we run, oh Thunder Road, sit tight take hold, Thunder Road.

Well I got this guitar and I learned how to make it talk, and my car’s out back if you’re ready to take that long walk, from your front porch to my front seat, the door’s open but the ride it ain’t free, and I know you’re lonely and there’s words that I ain’t spoken, but tonight we’ll be free, all the promises’ll be broken, there were ghosts in the eyes of all the boys you sent away, they haunt this dusty beach road. In the skeleton frames of burned out Chevrolets, they scream your name at night in the street, your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet, and in the lonely cool before dawn, you hear their engines roaring on, but when you get to the porch they’re gone, on the wind, so Mary climb in, it’s a town full of losers and I’m pulling out of here to win.

Cat Power. Metal heart.

octubre 26, 2009

Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Metal heart.

· · ·

Letra:

Losing the star without a sky, losing the reasons why, you’re losing the calling that you’ve been faking, and I’m not kidding. It’s damned if you don’t and it’s damned if you do, be true ‘cause they’ll lock you up in a sad sad zoo, oh hidy hidy hidy what cha tryin to prove, by hidy hidy hiding you’re not worth a thing.

Sew your fortunes on a string, and hold them up to light, blue smoke will take, a very violent flight, and you will be changed, sand everything, and you will be in a very sad sad zoo.

I once was lost but now I’m found was blind, but now I see you, how selfish of you to believe in the meaning of all the bad dreaming. Metal heart you’re not hiding, metal heart you’re not worth a thing. Metal heart you’re not hiding, metal heart you’re not worth a thing.

Buffalo Springfield. Out of my mind.

Canción.

Nombre: Out of my mind.

Letra:

Out of my mind, and I just can’t take it anymore. Left behind, by myself and what I’m living for, all I hear are screams from outside the limousines, that are taking me.

Out of my mind , through the keyhole in an open door, happy to find, that I don’t know what I’m smiling for, tired of hanging on, if you’ve missed me, I’ve just gone, cause they’re taking me, out of my mind.

Out of my mind, and I just can’t take it anymore, left behind, by myself and what I’m living for, all I hear are screams from outside the limousines, that are taking me, out of my mind.
