Del puño y letra de Pink

25 May 2009

Hey hey!  4 Ingleses entran a una cantina y el cantinero dice…

 

 

 if it wasn’t for the nips
being so good at building ships
the yards would still be open on the clyde
and it can’t be much fun for them
beneath the rising sun
with all their kids committing suicide.

THE POST WAR DREAM

The way you made them suffer,
Your exquisite wife and mother,
Fills me with the urge to deficate! Go Judge! Shit on him!

THE TRIAL

There’s an unceasing wind that blows through this night
And there’s dust in my eyes, that blinds my sight
And silence that speaks so much louder that words,
Of promises broken

SORROW

Money, so they say
Is the root of all evil today.
But if you ask for a raise its no surprise that theyre
Giving none away.

MONEY

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

TIME

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine. 
What did you dream? 
It’s alright we told you what to dream. 

WELCOME TO THE MACHINE

 

      Yo siempre he alabado con harta intensidad a las letras de Pink Floyd (de Meddle para adelante). Creo que nunca volverá a haber alguien que opaque la dulzura (o lo grotesco) que existía en las letras de Waters (y algunas de Gilmour): de la misoginia y el racismo hasta la perspectiva del tiempo o la locura. Pero eso sí, la voz de Dave siempre será la que cargue con la intensidad de las canciones*. Estos ejemplos, eso sí, son una belleza cuasi-divina, irrepetible, inconfundible y deberían de ser un patrimonio de la humanidad. 

 

*La estrofa que puse de Time, encuadra perfectamente, pero fue con Richard Wright (q.e.p.d.)

 

PD: Cómo odio que “anaquen” las ilustraciones y los logos de Gerald Scarfe para The Wall. Se ve de la RE-verga.

PPD: Bueh, ustedes ya saben. Es Jessica Biel.
