Canções do coração

A música sempre pode nos surpreender. Já tinha ouvido algumas vezes o último disco do Weezer (The Red Album), lançado este ano. E gostei de tudo. Ontem, viajando com a minha filha, comecei a prestar a atenção na letra de Heart Songs, enquanto ela cochilava, e pirei. De uma simplicidade enorme, essa música pode ser a minha, a sua, a história musical de diversas pessoas de 30 e poucos anos...

Aproveito e desejo Feliz Natal a todos.

Leiam a letra. No You Tube tem um pedaço dela, conforme eles a apresentam na atual turnê. Rivers entra no palco e põe o disco para tocar... Sen-sa-cio-nal!

Heart Songs (Weezer)

Gordon Lightfoot
Sang a song
About a boat
That sank in the lake
At the break
Of the morning
A Cat named Stevens
Found a faith
He could believe in
And Joan Baez
I never listened
Too much jazz
But hippie songs
Could be heard
In our pad
Eddie Rabbitt sang
About how much
He loved a rainy night
Abba, Devo, Benatar
Were there day
John Lennon died
Mr. Springsteen said
He had a hungry heart
Grover Washington
Was happy on the day
He topped the charts
These are the songs

These are my heart songs
They never feel wrong
And when I wake
For goodness sake
These are the songs
I keep singin'

Quiet Riot got me started
With the bangin' on my head
Iron Maiden, Judas Priest
And Slayer
Taught me how to shred
I gotta admit though
I would listen
To the radio
Debbie Gibson
Tell me that you think
We're all alone
Michael Jackson's
In the mirror
I've gotta have faith
If I wanna see clear
Never gonna give you up
Wish me love
Or wishing well
It takes two to make
A thing go right
If the Fresh Prince
Starts a fight
Don't you worry
For too long
'Cause you know
These are the songs


Back in 1991
I wasn't havin' any fun
'Till my roommate said
"Come on and put
A brand new record on"
Had a baby on it
He was naked on it
Then I heard the chords
That broke the chains
I had upon me
Got together with my bros
In some rehearsal studios
Then we played
Our first rock show
And watched the fan base
Start to grow
Signed the deal that gave
The dough to make
A record of our own
The song come
On the radio
Now people go
This is the song

These are my heart songs
They never feel wrong
And when I wake
For goodness sake
These are the songs
I keep singing

These are the songs
I keep singing
