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: 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.

The Replacements. I will dare.

octubre 14, 2009

Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: I will dare.

· · ·

Letra:

How young are you? How old am I? Let’s count the rings around my eyes. How smart are you? How dumb am I? Don’t count any of my advice. Oh, meet me anyplace or anywhere or anytime, now I don’t care, meet me tonight, if you will dare, I might dare.

Call me on Thursday, if you will, or call me on Wednesday, better still. Ain’t lost yet, so I gotta be a winner, fingernails and a cigarette’s a lousy dinner, young, are you?

Meet me anyplace or anywhere or anytime, now, I don’t care, meet me tonight, if you will dare, I will dare.

The Sex Pistols. Holidays in the sun.

octubre 14, 2009

Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Holidays in the sun.

· · ·

Letra:

A Cheap holiday in other peoples misery! I don’t wanna holiday in the sun, I wanna go to new Belsen, I wanna see some history, ‘cause now I got a reasonable economy. Now I got a reason, now I got a reason, now I got a reason and I’m still waiting. Now I got a reason, now I got reason to be waiting, the Berlin Wall.

Sensurround sound in a two inch wall, well I was waiting for the communist call, I didn’t ask for sunshine and I got World War three, I’m looking over the wall and they’re looking at me. Now I got a reason, now I got a reason, now I got a reason and I’m still waiting. Now I got a reason, now I got a reason to be waiting, the Berlin Wall.

Well they’re staring all night and, they’re staring all day, I had no reason to be here at all, but now I gotta reason it’s no real reason, and I’m waiting at the Berlin Wall. Gotta go over the Berlin Wall, I don’t understand it….I gotta go over the wall, I don’t understand this bit at all….

Claustropfobia there’s too much paranoia, there’s too many closets I went in before, and now I gotta reason, it’s no real reason to be waiting, the Berlin Wall. Gotta go over the Berlin Wall, I don’t understand it….I gotta go over the wall, I don’t understand this bit at all…Please don’t be waiting for me.
