Lilac Wine (James Shelton, 1950)- Nina Simone / Jeff Buckley (1966 – 1994)

I lost myself on a cool damp night
gave myself in that misty light
was hypnotized by a strange delight
under a lilac tree

i made wine from the lilac tree
put my heart in its recipe
it makes me see what i want to see
and be what i want to be

when i think more than i want to think
do things i never should do
i drink much more that i ought to drink
because i brings me back you

lilac wine
is sweet and heady
like my love
lilac wine
i feel unsteady
like my love

listen to me…
i cannot see clearly
isn’t that she coming to me nearly here?

lilac wine
is sweet and heady
where’s my love?
lilac wine
i feel unsteady
where’s my love?

listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
isn’t that she, or am i just going crazy, dear?

lilac wine, i feel unready for my love

Directly from my heart to you – Little Richard /Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention (1956 / 1970)

Una jugada, dos visions directes del cor.

Direct
Directly from my heart to you
Direct
Directly from my heart to you
Oh, you know that I love you
That’s why I feel so blue

Oh, I pray
Our love would last away
I pray
That our love would last away
Yeah, we’d be so happy together
But you’re so far away

Well, I need

Ballrooms of Mars / Divina – T-Rex/ Radio Futura (1972/1980)

You gonna look fine
Be primed for dancing
You’re gonna trip and glide
All on the trembling plane
Your diamond hands
Will be stacked with roses
And wind and cars
And people of the past

I’ll call you thing
Just when the moon sings
And place your face in stone
Upon the hill of stars
And gripped in the arms
Of the changeless madman
We’ll dance our lives away
In the Ballrooms of Mars

You talk about day
I’m talking ’bout night time
When the monsters call out
The names of men
Bob Dylan knows
And I bet Alan Freed did
There are things in night
That are better not to behold

You dance
With your lizard leather boots on
And pull the strings
That change the faces of men
You diamond browed hag
You’re a glitter-gaunt gangster
John Lennon knows your name
And I’ve seen his

Divina estás programada para el baile
y en la brillante nave te deslizarás
en tus manos de metal hay reflejos de rosas
y viento y coches, gentes del ayer.

Mi cosa te diré cuando cante la luna
y tu cara será una estrella sobre mi pedestal.
Suavemente abrazada a tu loco impasible
bailaremos toda la vida en los bailes de Marte
¡rock!

Tú hablas de la luz y yo hablo de la noche
cuando los monstruos tienen nombre de mujer.
David Bowie lo sabe y tu mami también
hay cosas en la noche que es mejor no ver.

Te veo bailar con pegatinas en el culo
y mueves con tu ritmo la cara de tus fans.
Eres una bruja de oro, eres un pequeño gangster
estuviste con Kaka de luxe pero no te oí cantar
¡rock!

I Feel Love – Donna Summer / Blue Man Group

El 17 de maig va fer cinc anys de la mort de Donna Summer,

Reina de la música disco durant un temps, sobre tot quan es va deixar menar pel productor Giorgio Moroder, guru de l’estil rei de la pista de ball. El seu “I feel Love” de l’any 77 tenia la capacitat de convidar a ballar amb unes poques notes i un persistent so de charles de la bateria. El single el vaig comprar a Lincoln, al nord de Londres, durant unes colònies d’estiu. A la manera de les illes, el disc anava dins d’una simple funda de paper sense fotos de l’artista. El més important era el forat al mig que permetia distingir el títol que buscaves i el nom de l’artista. Una manera d’abaratir costos i alleugerir la producció, suposo, en aquell mercat que apostava pel 45 rpm com a mètode de promoció.

Ooh
It’s so good, it’s so good
It’s so good, it’s so good
It’s so good
Ooh
Heaven knows, heaven knows
Heaven knows, heaven knows
Heaven knows
Ooh
I feel love, I feel love
I feel love, I feel love
I feel love

I feel love, I feel love, I feel love

Ooh
Fallin’ free, fallin’ free
Fallin’ free, fallin’ free
Fallin’ free
Ooh
You and me, you and me
You and me, you and me
You and me
Ooh
I feel love, I feel love
I feel love, I feel love
I feel love

I feel love, I feel love, I feel love

Ooh
I’ll get you, I’ll get you
I’ll get you, I’ll get you
I’ll get you
Ooh
What you do, what you do
What you do, what you do
What you do
Ooh
I feel love, I feel love
I feel love, I feel love
I feel love

I feel love, I feel love, I feel love

Blue Man Group – I Feel Love

Mai he entès perquè cap promotor els ha dut a actuar a Barcelona. Potser perquè als USA són un fenomen i ara valen massa calers per a una ciutat que no sap qui són. Els vaig veure a NYC l’any 1999 en un teatre petit de Manhattan i em van semblar brutals. Música, mímica i humor després de passar els durs test de qualitat de l’off Broadway.
