Recebi este mail e achei-o bem interessante. Foi uma iniciativa feita em plena movimentada Estação de Antuérpia, na Bélgica, com a participação de 200 bailarinos, depois de 4 semana de ensaio. Este evento ocorreu em Março deste ano.

O meu pai adorava esta canção e ele sem se aperceber muito do sentido, a letra dizia 'podes-me chamar Al' e ele chama-se Alberto. LOL

 

 

Letra da música:

A man walks down the street
He says why am I soft in the middle now
Why am I soft in the middle
The rest of my life is so hard
I need a photo-opportunity
I want a shot at redemption
Don't want to end up a cartoon
In a cartoon graveyard
Bonedigger Bonedigger
Dogs in the moonlight
Far away my well-lit door
Mr. Beerbelly Beerbelly
Get these mutts away from me
You know I don't find this stuff amusing anymore
If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
And Betty when you call me
You can call me Al

A man walks down the street
He says why am I short of attention
Got a short little span of attention
And wo my nights are so long
Where's my wife and family
What if I die here
Who'll be my role-model
Now that my role-model is
Gone Gone
He ducked back down the alley
With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl
All along along
There were incidents and accidents
There were hints and allegations

If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
And Betty when you call me
You can call me Al
Call me Al

A man walks down the street
It's a street in a strange world
Maybe it's the Third World
Maybe it's his first time around
He doesn't speak the language
He holds no currency
He is a foreign man
He is surrounded by the sound
The sound
Cattle in the marketplace
Scatterlings and orphanages
He looks around, around
He sees angels in the architecture
Spinning in infinity
He says Amen! and Hallelujah!

If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you Betty
And Betty when you call me
You can call me Al
Call me Al

Não há muito a dizer sobre esta música, a não ser que é simplesmente magnífica e que não me canso de a ouvir.

 

 

Letra da música:

Turn around,
Every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you never coming round
Turn around,
Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears
Turn around,
Every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Turn around,
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes

Turn around bright eyes,
Every now and then I fall apart
Turn around bright eyes,
Every now and then I fall apart

Turn around,
Every now and then I get a little bit restless and I dream of something wild
Turn around,
Every now and then I get a little bit helpless and I´m lying like a child in your arms
Turn around,
Every now and then I get a little bit angry and I know I´ve got to get out and cry
Turn around
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes
Turn around bright eyes,
Every now and then I fall apart
Turn around bright eyes,
Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you´ll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
´Cause we'll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time [All of the time...]
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

[INSTRUMENTAL]

Turn around bright eyes
Turn around bright eyes
Turn around, every now and then I know you´ll never be the boy you always wanted to be
Turn around, but every now and then I know you´ll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am
Turn around, every now and then I know there´s no one in the universe as magical and wondrous as you
Turn around, Every now and then I know there´s nothing any better and there´s nothing I just wouldn´t do
Turn around bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart
Turn around bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you´ll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
´Cause we'll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time [All of the time...]
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight

Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
Nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart.

Turn around bright eyes,
Turn around bright eyes,
Turn around.

Nas muitas viagens que fazia com os meus pais de carro para a aldeia, havia sempre uma cassete (quer dizer, várias...) com músicas dos anos 80, que o meu pai adorava ouvir e me fez gostar desta década.

Uma música que nunca consegui esquecer foi 'Lover why', da banda 'Century'. No início da letra, o vocalista diz 'A sign of time, I lost my life, forgot to die'... Era algo que me tocava e hoje em dia, ainda me diz muito (não só esta parte...).

 

A banda

Century foram formados em Marselha em 1979 e foram um dos poucos grupos franceses que tiveram êxito mundial a cantar em inglês.
Em 1986 editaram o single "Lover Why", extraído do LP "And...Soul It Goes", que foi um tremendo sucesso em Portugal e um pouco por toda a Europa e América do Sul (Além de gravado em cassete, os meus pais mantêm o disco em vinil).

 

 

Aqui fica a letra:

A sign of time
I lost my life, forgot to die
Like any man, a frightened guy
I'm keeping memories inside
Of wounded love

But I know
I'm more than sad and more today
I'm eating words too hard to say
A single tear and I'm away
Away and gone

I need you
So far from hell, so far from you
'Cause heaven's hard and black and gray
You're just a someone gone away
You never said goodbye
Why, lover why ?
Why do flowers die ?
Why, lover why ?

Everytime
I hear your voice, you heard my name
You built the fire, wet the flame
I swim for life, can't take the rain
No turning back

I need you
So far from hell, so far from you
'Cause heaven's hard and black and gray
You're just a someone gone away
You never said goodbye
Why, lover why ?
Why do flowers die ?
Why, lover why ?

Why, lover why ?
Why do flowers die ?
Why, lover why ?

A música 'Hallelujah' é um original de Leonard Cohen e entre os vários 'covers' que já foram feitos, para mim o melhor é interpretado por Jeff Buckey, cuja versão já foi usada por exemplo na série 'O. C. Na terra dos ricos'. É mais uma daquelas músicas que amo.

 

É uma canção que faz lembrar que há muita dor nas nossas vidas, mas que também conseguimos superar essa fase.

Há quase um ano, assisti a uma cena muito triste: uma mulher estava sentada dentro do seu carro, que estava estacionado na berma do passeio, esta música estava a passar no rádio (ou cd ou cassete, não sei...), num volume bastante alto e a dita senhora chorava, chorava, chorava...

 

Aqui fica um vídeo (a ilustrar cenas da série de tv) e no fim a letra da música.

 

 

I've heard there was a secret chord
that David played and it pleased the lord
but you don't really care for music do you?
Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne and she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah.

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew you
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not a victory march
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Well there was a time when you let me know
what's really going on below
but now you never show that to me do you?
but remember when I moved in you
and the holy dove was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Well maybe there's a God above
but all I've ever learned from love
was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
it's not somebody who've seen the light
it's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah
