That’s life” (Frank Sinatra)

-via @YouTube-

That’s Life
Frank Sinatra
That’s life (that’s life) that’s what people say
You’re riding high in April
Shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June


I said, that’s life (that’s life) and as funny as it may seem
Some people get their kicks
Stompin’ on a dream
But I don’t let it, let it get me down
‘Cause this fine old world it keeps spinnin’ around

I’ve been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate
A poet, a pawn and a king
I’ve been up and down and over and out
And I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on my face
I pick myself up and get back in the race


That’s life (that’s life) I tell ya, I can’t deny it
I thought of quitting, baby
But my heart just ain’t gonna buy it
And if I didn’t think it was worth one single try
I’d jump…

“Come on, baby, light my fire!”

16 July 2019

Jim Morrison

__

“Light My Fire”

THE DOORS

You know that it would be untrue

You know that I would be a liar

If I was to say to you

Girl, we couldn’t get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire

Come on baby, light my fire

Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through

No time to wallow in the mire

Try now we can only lose

And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire

Come on baby, light my fire

Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through

No time to wallow in the mire

Try now we can only lose

And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire

Come on baby, light my fire

Try to set the night on fire, yeah

You know that it would be untrue

You know that I would be a liar

If I was to say to you

Girl, we couldn’t get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire

Come on baby, light my fire

Try to set the night on fire

Try to set the night on fire

Try to set the night on fire

Try to set the night on fire

“Suspicious minds” (Elvis Presley)

Suspicious Minds

Elvis Presley

__

We’re caught in a trap

I can’t walk out

Because I love you too much baby

Why can’t you see

What you’re doing to me

When you don’t believe a word I say?

We can’t go on together

With suspicious minds

And we can’t build our dreams

On suspicious minds

No surprises

RADIOHEAD

A heart that’s full up like a landfill

A job that slowly kills you

Bruises that won’t heal

You look so tired, unhappy

Bring down the government

They don’t, they don’t speak for us

I’ll take a quiet life

A handshake of carbon monoxide

With no alarms and no surprises

No alarms and no surprises

No alarms and no surprises

 

Silent, silent

This is my final fit

My final bellyache

With no alarms and no surprises

No alarms and no surprises

No alarms and no surprises, please

 

 

Such a pretty house

And such a pretty garden

No alarms and no surprises

No alarms and no surprises

No alarms and no surprises, please

Precious and fragile things

Need special handling

My God what have we done to You?

We always try to share

The tenderest of care

Now look what we have put You through

Things get damaged

Things get broken

I thought we’d manage

But words left unspoken

Left us so brittle

There was so little left to give

One Sweet Day

Sorry I never told you

All I wanted to say

Now it’s too late to hold you

‘Cause you’ve flown away

So far away

Never had I imagined

Living without your smile

Feeling and knowing you hear me

It keeps me alive

Alive

And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven

Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way

And I know eventually we’ll be together

Coney Island, baby (Lou Reed)

Coney Island, baby (via @YouTube)

DEDICADO

A Carlos Moreno –también conocido como El Pulpo- y Carlos Herrera que eligieron esta mañana un tema de Lou Reed para hacer compañía a sus oyentes. Carlos Herrera contó que uno de sus discos favoritos era el titulado “Coney Island, baby“.

Todas las mañanas de lunes a viernes hay un programa de radio en la Cope que lleva Carlos Moreno de 4: 00 a.m a 5: 00 a.m hasta que llegan los diez minutos de fusión entre el Pulpo y Herrera. Los dos hablan de música, mayormente. También hablan de otras cosas, de comida. Se despiden en una lengua extranjera (o no tanto, si se trata de esperanto).  Volviendo a la música, hace semanas tocaron a Marvin Gaye, otro día pusieron algo de Dylan, Springsteen los Beatles. Esta misma mañana, el Pulpo puso un tema de Nino Bravo. Revuelven la memoria de los madrugadores con Carlos Goñi (“Revólver”), “Los secretos“, “Tequila” y otros. En fin, merece la pena la compañía, el tono y la información.

Dejo aquí un enlace a un PDF con la letra de “Coney Island, baby“:

So cruel (U2)

31 August 2017

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

 

 

So cruel

U2

 

We crossed the line

Who pushed who over?

It doesn’t matter to you

It matters to me

We’re cut adrift

We’re still floating

I’m only hanging on

To watch you go down

My love

I disappeared in you

You disappeared from me

I gave you everything you ever wanted

It wasn’t what you wanted

The men who love you, you hate the most

They pass through you like a ghost

They look for you, but your spirit is in the air

Baby, you’re nowhere

 

Oh…love…

You say in love there are no rules

Oh…love…

Sweetheart,

You’re so cruel

Desperation is a tender trap

It gets you every time

You put your lips to her lips

To stop the lie

 

Her skin is pale like God’s only dove

Screams like an angel for your love

Then she makes you watch her from above

And you need her like a drug

Oh…love…

You say in love there are no rules

Oh…love…

Sweetheart,

You’re so cruel

 

She wears my love like a see-through dress

Her lips say one thing

Her movements something else

Oh love, like a screaming flower

Love…dying every hour…love

You don’t know if it’s fear or desire

Danger the drug that takes you higher

Head in heaven, fingers in the mire

 

Her heart is racing, you can’t keep up

The night is bleeding like a cut

Between the horses of love and lust

We are trampled underfoot

Oh…love… You say in love there are no rules

Oh…love…

Sweetheart,

You’re so cruel

Oh…love…

To stay with you I’d be a fool

Sweetheart

You’re so cruel
