“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

Autores de la canción: Colin Charles Greenwood / Edward John O’brien / Jonathan Richard Guy Greenwood / Philip James Selway / Thomas Edward Yorke

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

“I´m jealous of the rain”

Jealous, Labrinth-

 

I’m jealous of the rain

That falls upon your skin

It’s closer than my hands have been

I’m jealous of the rain

I’m jealous of the wind

That ripples through your clothes

It’s closer than your shadow

Oh, I’m jealous of the wind

‘Cause I wished you the best of

All this world could give

And I told you when you left me

There’s nothing to forgive

But I always thought you’d come back, tell me all you found was

Heartbreak and misery

It’s hard for me to say, I’m jealous of the way

You’re happy without me

I’m jealous of the nights

That I don’t spend with you

I’m wondering who you lay next to

Oh, I’m jealous of the nights

I’m jealous of the love

Love that was in here

Gone for someone else to share

Oh, I’m jealous of the love

‘Cause I wished you the best of

All this world could give

And I told you when you left me

There’s nothing to forgive

But I always thought you’d come back, tell me all you found was

Heartbreak and misery

It’s hard for me to say, I’m jealous of the way

You’re happy without me

As I sink in the sand

Watch you slip through my hands

Oh, as I die here another day, yeah

‘Cause all I do is cry behind this smile

I wished you the best of

All this world could give

And I told you when you left me

There’s nothing to forgive

But I always thought you’d come back, tell me all you found was

Heartbreak and misery

It’s hard for me to say, I’m jealous of the way

You’re happy without me

I-I-It’s hard for me to say, I’m jealous of the way

You’re happy without me

Caroline Says II (Lou Reed)

Caroline Says II

Lou Reed

Caroline says

as she gets up off the floor

Why is it that you beat me

it isn’t any fun

 

Caroline says

as she makes up her eyes

You ought to learn more about yourself

think more than just I

 

But she’s not afraid to die

all her friends call her “Alaska”

When she takes speed, they laugh and ask her

What is in her mind

what is in her mind

 

Caroline says

as she gets up from the floor

You can hit me all you want to

but I don’t love you anymore

 

Caroline says

while biting her lip

Life is meant to be more than this

and this is a bum trip

 

But she’s not afraid to die

all her friends call her “Alaska”

When she takes speed, they laugh and ask her

What is in her mind

what is in her mind

 

She put her fist through the window pane

It was such a funny feeling

It’s so cold in Alaska

it’s so cold in Alaska

It’s so cold in Alaska
