Gotye – Somebody that I used to know

Seguro que muchos, si no todos, os sentís identificados con esta canción en relación con más de una persona que haya pasado por vuestras vidas. Incluso en relación con la inmensa mayoría de ellas.

Y no solo se trata de la letra, sino también de las indescriptibles voces y la elaborada parte instrumental. Un conjunto fantástico que, sumado a la interesante composición del videoclip y a la tremenda expresividad facial de su protagonista, te atrapa en su intensidad expresiva, artística y simbólica.

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end
So, when we found that we could not make sense
Well, you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

Chorus
But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
No, you didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
I guess that I don’t need, that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know (x3)

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
But I don’t wanna live that way, reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know

Chorus

Somebody, I used to know
Somebody, now you’re just somebody that I used to know
Somebody, I used to know
Somebody, now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know
I used to know
Somebody

Patti Smith Group – Because the night belongs to lovers

Take me now baby here as I am
Hold me close, try and understand
Desire is hunger is the fire I breathe
Love is a banquet on which we feed

Come on now try and understand
The way I feel when I’m in your hands
Take my hand come undercover
They can’t hurt you now,
Can’t hurt you now, can’t hurt you now

Chorus
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

Have I doubt when I’m alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed until the morning comes
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can’t touch you now,
Can’t touch you now, can’t touch you now

Chorus

With love we sleep
With doubt the vicious circle
Turns and burns
Without you I cannot live
Forgive, the yearning burning
I believe it’s time, too real to feel
So touch me now, touch me now, touch me now

Chorus

Because tonight there are two lovers
If we believe in the night we trust
Because tonight there are two lovers
Because the night belongs to lust
Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us

The Contours – Do you love me

Este sábado por la noche, volviendo a buena hora hacia casa, me sentí feliz mientras conducía sola y sonaba esta canción por la radio.

Mika – Elle me dit

No es que la letra sea muy profunda, pero en sí la canción me da un buen rollo impresionante, así que la cuelgo antes de que se me pase la fiebre. Y sigo considerando admirable la capacidad tonal de este hombre.

Rihanna – Man Down

No suele ser el estilo musical que exploto normalmente, pero esta canción me parece la mar de bella artísticamente, tanto por su interpretación audiovisual como por la increíble voz de esta mujer, potente y hermosa. Por otra parte, creo que la letra se podía haber proyectado de otra manera para dar lugar a una historia más justiciera, en vez del malestar tan sufrido que parece exponer la protagonista, como si se arrepintiera desesperadamente (al menos yo, en su situación, no lo haría). A ver qué opináis vosotros, teniendo en cuenta las imágenes.

I didn’t mean to end his life
I know it wasn’t right
I can’t even sleep at night
Can’t get it off my mind
I need to get out of sight
Before I end up behind bars

What started out as a simple altercation
Turned into a real sticky situation
Me just thinking on the time that I’m facing
Makes me wanna cry

‘Cause I didn’t mean to hurt him
Could’ve been somebody’s son
And I took his heart when
I pulled out that gun

Rum bum bum bum
Rum bum bum bum
Rum bum bum bum
Man down
Rum bum bum bum
Rum bum bum bum
Rum bum bum bum
Man down

Chorus
Oh, mama, mama, mama
I just shot a man down
In central station
In front of a big old crowd
Oh why, oh why
Oh, mama, mama, mama
I just shot a man down
In central station

It’s a 22, I call her Peggy Sue
When she fits right down in my shoes
What do you expect me to do
If you’re playing me for a fool
I will lose my cool
And reach for my fire arm

I didn’t mean to lay him down
But it’s too late to turn back now
Don’t know what I was thinking
Now he’s no longer living
So I’m ‘bout to leave town

‘Cause I didn’t mean to hurt him
Could’ve been somebody’s son
And I took his heart when
I pulled out that gun

Rum bum bum bum […]

Chorus

Look, I never thought I’d do it
Never thought I’d do it
Never thought I’d do it, oh gosh
What ever happened to me
Ever happened to me, ever happened to me
Why did I pull the trigger
Pull the trigger, pull the trigger, boom
And end a nigga, end a niggas life so soon
When me pull the trigger, pull the trigger, pull it ‘pon you
Somebody tell me what I’m gonna, what I’m gonna do

Rum bum bum bum […]
Me say wah man down (A weh me say)
Rum bum bum bum […]
When me went downtown

‘Cause now I am a criminal, criminal, criminal
Oh lord have mercy now I am a criminal
Man down
Tell the judge please give me minimal
Run out of town,
None of them can see me now, see me now

Chorus

The Lonely Island – I just had sex (feat. Akon)

He procurado contenerme pero, sinceramente, me hace gracia y resulta bastante pegadiza. Os presento a The Lonely Island con el tema I just had sex. Aquí podéis saber un poco sobre este grupo de cómicos muchachos.

Sometimes something beautiful happens in this world (Akon!)
You don’t know how to express yourself, so (And Lonely Island!)
You just gotta sing

Chorus
I just had sex (Ay)
And it felt so good (Felt so good)
A woman let me put my penis inside of her (Her)
I just had se-ay-ee-ex
And I’ll never go back (Never go back)
To the not-havin’-sex ways of the past

Have you ever had sex? I have, it felt great (Yeah)
It felt so good when I did it with my penis (Yeah)
A girl let me do it, it literally just happened
Having sex should make a nice man out the meanest

Never guess where I just came from, I had sex
If I had to describe the feelin’, it was the best
When I had the sex, man, my penis felt great
And I called my parents right after I was done

Oh, hey, didn’t see you there, guess what I just did?
Had sex, undressed, saw her boobies and the rest
(Was sure nice of her to let you do that thing)
Nice of any girl ever (Now sing)

I just had sex (Ay)
And it felt so good (Felt so good)
A woman let me put my penis inside of her (Her)
I wanna tell the world

To be honest, I’m surprised she even wanted me to do it
(Doesn’t really make sense) But man, screw it
(I ain’t one to argue with a good thing) She could be my wife!
(That good?) The best thirty seconds of my life

I’m so humbled by a girl’s ability to let me do her
‘Cause honestly, I’d have sex with a pile of manure
With that in mind, a soft, nice-smellin’ girl’s better
Plus she let me wear my chain and my turtleneck sweaters

So this one’s dedicated to them girls
That let us flop around on top of them
If you’re near or far, whether short or tall
We wanna thank you all for lettin’ us fuck you

She kept lookin’ at her watch (Doesn’t matter, had sex!)
But I cried the whole time (Doesn’t matter, had sex!)
I think she might’ve been a racist (Doesn’t matter, had sex!)
She put a bag on my head (Still counts!)

I just had sex (Ay)
And my dreams came true (Dreams came true)
So if you had sex in the last thirty minutes
Then you qualified to sing with me

Chorus

Enya – Orinoco Flow

Una canción mucho más que preciosa de una artista con una voz indescriptible. Muy recomendables también Caribbean Blue, Book of Days, Only Time, Wild Child, Anywhere is… Básicamente, todo el disco The Very Best of Enya.

let me sail, let me sail, let the orinoco flow,
let me reach, let me beach on the shores of Tripoli.
let me sail, let me sail, let me crash upon your shore,
let me reach, let me beach far beyond the Yellow Sea.
da da, da da, da da, da da, da da

sail away, sail away, sail away (x4)

from Bissau to Palau – in the shade of Avalon,
from Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony,
from Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon,
from Bali to Cali – far beneath the Coral Sea.

da da, da da, da da, da da, da da

turn it up, turn it up, turn it up, up, up adieu (x3)

sail away…

from the North to the South, Ebudæ into Khartoum,
from the deep sea of Clouds to the island of the moon,
carry me on the waves to the lands I’ve never been,
carry me on the waves to the lands I’ve never seen.

we can sail, we can sail, with the orinoco flow,
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away
we can steer, we can near with Rob Dickins at the wheel,
we can sigh, say goodbye Ross and his dependencies
we can sail, we can sail,
sail away, sail away, sail away
