Five Years - Brian Molko

Descobri esta música hoje, desconheço o original do David Bowie, mas esta versão do Brian molko dos Placebo é qq coisa de fantástica!



Pushing thru the market square,
So many mothers sighing
News had just come over,
We had five years left to cry in
News guy wept and told us,
He said earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet,
Then I knew he was not lying
I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
There were boys, toys, electric guns and t.v.s
My brain hurt like a warehouse,
It had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people,
And all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people,
And all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people

A girl my age went off her head,
Hit some tiny children
And if the black hadn't have pulled her off,
I think she would have killed them
A soldier with a broken arm,
Used to stare to the wheels of a cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest,
And a queer threw up at the sight of that

Well, I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour,
Drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine,
Don't think you knew you were in this song
And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, you waist, the way that you talk
I miss you, you're beautiful

We've got five years,
Stuck on my eyes
Five years,
What a surprise
We've got five years,
My brain hurts a lot
Five years,
That's all we've got
We've got five years

Esta versão está interessante, mas... não é a do David Bowie!!

E dizes tu que desconheces a versão original do mestre Bowie???????? Anda cá para eu te dar um grande puxão de orelhas! Mas daqueles mesmo grandes, de ficares com a marca da unha na orelha, hum? ;)

Vamos lá a comprar o inigualável álbum "Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" do Senhor Bowie. É daqueles álbuns em que dificilmente consegues escolher uma música como favorita. Simplesmente pões a tocar e ouves sem parar. Próximo do álbum perfeito...

Vou ficar à espera que compres, que ouças e que dês opinião. :)

Beijinhos grandes da Lady Stardust. ***

Corrigindo o nome do álbum, ou melhor, completando: "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars".

Assim, sim. :)

Vou ver então se compro o disco ali na loja do animal de 4 patas :P

Não sou grande conhecedor do trabalho do Mestre David, como lhe chamas, conheço algumas músicas, mas nem de perto nem de longe posso dizer que lhe conheço o trabalho, irei investigar a tua recomendação :)
