La Música en mi vida...


Los que me conocen bien saben de mi afición por la música. La colección de cada persona es como lo dijo muy bien una amistad "el soundtrack de mi vida". Hay muchas canciones que significaron mucho en su momento, y aunque mucha gente no puede transportarse con la música los que sí pueden saben a lo que me refiero. Se me ocurrió hacer una lista, pero no de las canciones, sino de los versos de algunas de las canciones que han significado algo para mí en algún momento. Aún así, quedan muchas por fuera. A ver cuáles pueden reconocer!

**a petición agregué los grupos/cantantes y nombres de las canciones**

The Smiths - Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now

"In my life, why do I give valuable time

Who people who don’t care if I

Live or die?"

-----------------

Prince - Little Red Corvette

"I guess I must be dumb

Cuz u had a pocket full of horses

Trojan and some of them used"

---------------

Pet Shop Boys - Rent

"I’m your puppet

I Love It"

----------------

John Lennon - Imagine

"Imagine there's no Heaven

It's easy if you try

No hell below us

Above us only sky"

-----------------

Everything but the Girl - Cross my Heart

"But of course it's not polite

To ask you where you spent last night

And if I did, you might reply that I have no right

And anyway I'm fine

Glad that you're no longer mine

If I should tell a lie

I'll cross my heart and I hope to die"

--------------------

Elton John - Sacrifice

"It's a human sign

When things go wrong

When the scent of her lingers

And temptation's strong"

----------------------

Depeche Mode - Somebody

"I don’t want to be tied

To anyone’s strings

I’m carefully trying to steer clear of

Those things"

----------------------

Culture Club - Time
"Because time won't give me time

And time makes lovers feel

Like they've got something real

But you and me we know

They've got nothing but time"

-----------------------

Alice Cooper - You and Me

"But you and me ain't no movie stars.

What we are is what we are.

We share a bed,

Some lovin',

And TV, yeah."

----------------------

Billy Paul - Me and Mrs. Jones

"We both know that it's wrong,

But it's much too strong to let it cool down now.

We gotta be extra careful that we don't build our hopes too high

Cause she's got her own obligations and so do I"

-------------------------

Bread - It don't matter to me

"It don't matter to me

If you take up with

Someone who's better than me

'Cause your happiness is all I want

For you to find

Peace ... your peace of mind"

----------------------

The Platters - Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

"They, said some day you'll find

All who love are blind

When you heart's on fire

You must realize

Smoke gets in your eyes"

-----------------------

The Cardigans - Erase-Rewind

"Yes, I said it's fine before

I don't think so no more

I said it's fine before

I've changed my mind

I take it back"

----------------------

Pet Shop Boys - We All Feel Better in the Dark

The music's pumping through me, I rush into the crowd

The sweat is pouring off me, the beat is dead loud

I want someone to love me, and I know I want it now

These feelings that I'm feeling must be satisfied somehow

I want it, I want it, you know I really want it!

I want it, I want it, you know I really want it!

I want it, I want it, you know I really want it!
------------------------

Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence

"Vows are spoken

To be broken

Feelings are intense

Words are trivial

Pleasures remain

So does the pain

Words are meaningless

And forgettable"

--------------------

George Michael - Fastlove

"Looking for some affirmation

made my way into the sun

My friends got their ladies

They're all having babies

I just wanna have some fun"

-----------------------

La Tour - People are Still Having Sex

"Although you can't see them

Or hear their breathing sounds

Someone in this world

Is having sex right now"

------------------------

Michael Jackson - Who is It?

"And it doesn't seem to matter

And it doesn't seem right

Cuz the will has brought no fortune

Still I cry alone at night"

------------------------

The Cranberries - Linger

"Oh, I thought the world of you

I thought nothing could go wrong

But I was wrong

I was wrong"

------------------------

Morrisey - The More you Ignore Me, the Closer I Get

"The more you ignore me

The closer I get

You're wasting your time"

Quién me ayuda...

Un placer saludar a todos mis amigos (porque eso los considero :-) ) que se toman la molestia de echarle un ojo a mi paginilla de vez en cuando y dejarme sus comentarios...

Bueno, lo que les puedo contar de la "semana santa" es que la disfrute bastante, a pesar de que me pegué una perdida de los once mil diablos y creí que le iba a gastar todo el tanque al carro del Rent-a-car, pero en fin...

quiero ver si alguno de ustedes me puede ayudar con esto. Resulta que cuando estaba pequeño me gustaba ver el programa "atisbos" con el camotazo de Guido Sáenz (... SÍ! ME GUSTABA VERLO Y QUÉ??!!). El asunto es que a mí me gustaba asustarme viendo el ojo que ponía al principio ("el espejo falso" de Rene Magritte) y escuchar la pieza de violín que se me hacía super triste, pero que no he podido averiguar cómo se llama!!! Si alguno de ustedes me puede ayudar, se los agradecería un montón!!! tengo ese ojo ahorita de fondo de pantalla y nada más me falta la musiquita para transportarme a mi niñez... (me da miedo preguntarle a don Guido directamente porque con lo cascarrabias que es luego me dice quién sabe que conchada...)

Again, I apologize for not being able to post anything new lately...

A quick post just to let you know that thanks to somebody's supposed death, I'll be on vacations until next Monday 16th... hope you enjoy your holidays! (for those of you who can) and hope to see you soon!
