Música do Dia: I Know There’s An Answer

O álbum Pet Sounds, geralmente considerado o segundo disco mais importante da história, perdendo apenas para a produção que o teve como inspiração – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, dos Beatles – tem várias pequenas obras primas. Dentre as faixas menos comentadas está I Know There’s An Answer (Brian Wilson/Mike Love/Terry Sachen).

Tão brilhante quanto a melodia e o arranjo, é a letra, que fala daquelas pessoas que acham que podem resolver tudo sozinhas e fingem estarem cercadas de amigos. Que se mostram calmos, quando na verdade estão sempre desconfortavelmente tensos e passam as noites com seus pensamentos vazios.

Quem não conhece Pet Sounds precisa ouvi-lo logo.

Lembre: sempre há uma resposta.

I know so many people who think they can do it alone
They isolate their head and stay in their safety zone
Now what can you tell them
And what can you say that won’t make them defensive

I know there’s an answer
I know now but I had to find it by myself

They come on like they’re peaceful
But inside they’re so uptight
They trip through their day
And waste all their thoughts at night
Now how can I come on
And tell them the way that they live could be better

I know there’s an answer
I know now but I had to find it by myself

Now how can I come on
And tell them the way that they live could be better

I know there’s an answer
I know now but I had to find it by myself

Os absurdos de Violão e Guitarra

Esses são alguns pequenos exemplos do que uma pessoa sofria nos anos 70/80 para conseguir uma letra de música e cifras para violão. Se o seu inglês não fosse bom a tendência seria piorar depois de ver (e acreditar) nisso. Ei Judeu andando na Rua do Dinheiro (eca)!

I’m the Greatest

sobrancelha

Essa vai para os gênios bêbados que acham que vão entrar para a História, mas não têm ideia da sorte de terem as sobrancelhas que comem.

I’m The Greatest
John Lennon

When i was a little boy,
Way back home in liverpool,
My mama told me, i was great.

Then when i was a teenager,
I knew that i had got something going,
All my friends told me i was great.

And now i’m a man,
A woman took me by the hand,
And you know what she told me…i was great.

I was in the greatest show on earth,
For what it was worth.
Now i’m only thirty-two;
And all i wanna do, is boogaloo!

Hey!

I looked in the mirror,
I saw my wife and kids,
And you know what they told me…i was great.

Yes, my name is billy shears,
You know it has been for so many years.
Now i’m only thirty-two;
And all i wanna do, is boogaloo!

Duas lindas canções sobre a dor do amor

Derek and the DominosDo melhor disco de dor de cotovelo da história do rock – Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs -. duas belíssimas canções.

It’s Too Late

It’s too late, she’s gone.
It’s too late, my baby’s gone.
Wish I had told her she was my only one.
It’s too late, she’s gone.

It’s a woman that cries,
So I guess I’ve gotta hide my eyes.
Yes, I will miss her more than anyone.
It’s too late, she’s gone.

She’s gone, yes she’s gone.
She’s gone, my baby’s gone.
She’s gone, yes she’s gone.
Where can my baby be?

And I wonder does she know
When she left me, it hurt me so.
I need your love babe, please don’t make me wait.
Tell me it’s not too late.

 

Why Does Love Got To Be So Sad?

Got to find me a way
To take me back to yesterday.
How can I ever hope to forget you?

Won’t you show me a place
Where I can hide my lonely face?
I know you’re going to break my heart if I let you.

Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?
Why does love got to be so sad?

Like a moth to a flame,
Like a song without a name,
I’ve never been the same since I met you.

Like a bird on the wing,
I’ve got a brand new song to sing,
I can’t keep from singing about you.

Chorus

I’m beginning to see
What a fool you’ve made of me.
I might have to break the law when I find you.

Stop running away;
I’ve got a better game to play,
You know I can’t go on living without you.

 

Eu não fui feito para os dias de hoje

Não gosto de batucada, letras ralas e arranjos popbres (pop+pobres), O último disco dos Beach Boys (That’s Why God Made The Radio) já se coloca, ao lado do último do Van Halen, como um dos melhores lançamentos do ano. Vocais fantásticos, nostalgia da melhor década de todos os tempos na música (anos 60) e letras que nos fazem pensar.

Leiam, ouçam e reflitam sobre suas vidas.

Abaixo duas das minhas prefridas do disco – From There to Back Again e Pacific Coast Highway

 

From There to Back Again

Why don’t you, run away
And spend some time with me
On this summer’s day
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be

Why don’t we feel the way we used to
Anymore
There’s a place we love the way
That maybe we could stay
Listen to the waves at my front door

You’ve been thinking about some things
We used to do
Thinking about while life was still in front of you
Back where you belong, our favorite song
Won’t you listen?

Don’t you understand the words
Are singing in the wind
I wish that we could get through that
And back again

The clouds are breaking it’s a beautiful day
Oow, wonderful, as if it comes a getaway
Sun is shining, could we just find a way
If you’d just fall, just fall, just fall
To the love

Through the compromised paradise
It’s just another place upon the wall
Through the common sense of it all
We had a lot to live, we gave it all
Through the consequence, of the war
Another place in time


Pacific Coast Highway

Sometimes I realise the days are getting on
Sometimes I will it’s time for me move on
And I wanna go home

Sunlight it’s fading and there no much left to say
My life I’m better off alone,
My life I’m better on my own.
Driving down pacific cost
Out on highway on the setting sun
Goodbye
