The Ramones y The Pretenders "Something to believe in"


Grupo: The Ramones
Canción: Something to believe in
Disco: Animal boy (1986)
Discográfica: Warner Bros.
Estilo: Punk Rock



I wish I was someone else
I'm confused, I'm afraid, I hate the loneliness
And there's nowhere to run to
Nothing makes any sense, but I still try my hardest

Take my hand
Please help me man
'Cause I'm looking for something to believe in
And I don't know where to start
And I don't know where to begin, to begin

If I was stupid or naive
Trying to achieve what they all call contentness
If people weren't such dicks and I never made mistakes
Then I could find forgiveness

Take my hand
Please help me man
'Cause I'm looking for something to believe in
And I don't know where to start
And I don't know where to begin, oh no

I can't be someone else
I don't feel that it's hopeless
I don't feel that I'm useless

I can't throw it all away
I need some courage to find my weakness
And with your love, I know with all my heart I can win

'Cause I'm looking for something to believe in
And I just need something to believe in
I'm looking for something to believe in
And I just need something to believe in




Grupo: The Pretenders

Buffalo Tom "Soda Jerk"



Grupo: Buffalo Tom
Canción: Soda Jerk
Disco: Big Red Letter Day (1993)
Discográfica: Beggars
Estilo: Pop Rock Alternativo

Trio de Boston que en 1989 publico su primer disco. Despues de Smitten (1998) han estado inactivos hasta el año 2007 que publicaron "Three easy pieces".
Con Soda Jerk comienza Red letter day, uno de los mejores discos junto con Let me come over. La cancion, o por lo menos sus primeros veinte segundos, fue muy conocida gracias a un spot televisivo de Nike.



Watch an eyeball
Take a free fall
At the mention of a name
In its socket
And like a rocket
Rises just the same

But could my eyelids
Cover what I did
The shuttin of the door
And could these ceilings
Contain my feelings
Me down on the floor

Jerked my fountain
Ice cream mountains
I suppose I'm just too late
Form a line here
I think I'll die here
These people naseate me

But if my patience
Were a spaceship
High up in orbit
Then I would rise here
Hypnotized here
Risen from where I sit

A solid angle
My legs do dangle
Off the counter's edge
Soft words spoken
Promises broken
Close my eyes instead

But could my eyelids
Cover what I did
The shuttin of the door
And could these ceilings
Contain my feelings
Me down on the floor
Me down on the floor
Me down on the floor
Me down on the floor

Teenage Fanclub "Don´t look back" y version de Barely Pink

ESCUCHA ESPECIALMENTE RECOMENDADA



Grupo: Teenage Fanclub
Canción: Don´t look back
Disco: Grand Prix (1995)
Discográfica: Geffen
Estilo: Pop Rock Alternativo, indie pop, Jangle Pop, Power Pop

Casi todo esta dicho acerca de esta banda escocesa (sin duda una de mis favoritas) Esta cancion se encuentra en su cuarto disco, esta compuesta por Gerard Love y es una autentica maravilla.


If I could find the words to say
The sun shines in your eyes
So brighten up my city sky

Break out the news, it's back again
The voice that tried to sing
She don't hang on
And hope's never going to teach me

Wake up the story's over
Climb aboard I'm going nowhere

And understand if I must say
I'd give both these wings away
I'd steal a car to drive you home
I don't look back on an empty feeling

Repaint the Blues, my saving grace
Is lost without a trace
The morning sun's a fire in space

She lives in your life everyday
Stretching time to stay
Got my mind set something else so it's hard to see

I don't need a guiding light to lead me in the dark

And understand if I must say
I'd give both these wings away
I'd steal a car to drive you home
I don't look back on an empty feeling

(Don't look back) on an empty feeling
(Don't look back) on an empty feeling
(Don't look back) on an empty feeling
(Don't look back) on an empty feeling


Como ya he hecho en ocasiones anteriores acompaño tambien la version que se realizo en su momento en el disco tributo a Teenage Fanclub. La version fue realizada por Barely Pink

Feelin' all alone without a friend, you know you feel like dyin'.
Oh, didn't I, didn't I, didn't I see you cryin'?

Martha and The Muffins "Echos Beach"


Grupo: Martha and The Muffins
Canción: Echos Beach
Disco: Metro Music (1980)
Discográfica: EMI
Estilo: New wave

Otra muestra, mas que interesante, de la musica que se hacia en 1980. La cosecha de 1980 es una de las mejores de la historia de la musica. Esta banda canadiense se creo en 1977 en Toronto, publicando seis discos hasta su disolucion en 1986. Volvieron en 1992 para editar un disco "Modern Lullaby". Esta cancion, una de las mas conocidas de la banda, es de su primer disco "Metro Music"




I know it's out of fashion
And a trifle uncool
But I can't help it
I'm a romantic fool
It's a habit of mine
To watch the sun go down
On Echo beach, I watch the sun go down

From nine till five I have to spend my time at work
The job is very boring, I'm an office clerk
The only thing that helps pass the time away
Is knowing I'll be back at Echo Beach some day

On a silent summer evening
The sky's alive with light
Building in the distance
Surrealistic sight
On Echo Beach
Waves make the only sound
On Echo Beach
There's not a soul around

From nine till five I have to spend my time at work
The job is very boring, I'm an office clerk
The only thing that helps pass the time away
Is knowing I'll be back at Echo Beach some day

Echo Beach
Far away in time
Echo Beach
Far away in time

Pat Benatar "I need a lover"


Grupo: Pat Benatar
Canción: I need a lover
Disco: In the heart of of the night (1979)
Discografica: Capitol Records
Estilo: Arena Rock

I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
I Need A Lover that won't drive me mad
I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
Someone to thrill me, and then go away
I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
Someone that knows the meaning of ah - Hey hit the highway

Well I've been walking the streets in the evening
Racing through this human jungle at night
I'm so confused, my mind is indifferent
Hey - I'm so weak, won't someone shut out that light
Electricity runs thru the video
And I watch from this hole I call home
And all the stonies that are dancin' to the radio
I got the world calling me tonight on the phone

I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
I Need A Lover that won't drive me mad
I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
Someone that knows the meaning of ah - Hey hit the highway

Well I'm not wiped out by this poolroom life I'm livin'
But I'm gonna quit my job, and go to school, and head back home
Now I'm not asking to be loved or be forgiven
Hey - I just can't face shakin' in this bedroom one more night alone

I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
I Need A Lover that won't drive me mad
I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
Someone that knows the meaning of ah - Hey hit the highway

I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
Someone to thrill me, and then go away
I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy

I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
I Need A Lover that won't drive me mad
I Need A Lover that won't drive me crazy
Someone that knows the meaning of ah - Hey hit the highway

Canción:Into yours arms
Disco: Come on feel

Estilo: pop Rock alternativo

I know a place where I can go when I'm alone
Into your arms whoa into your arms I can go

Into your arms whoa into your arms I can go
And if I should fall
I know I won't be alone
Be alone anymore

I know a place where I can go when I'm alone
Into your arms whoa into your arms I can go
I know a place that's safe and warm from the crowd
Into your arms whoa into your arms I can go
So if I should fall
I know I won't be alone
Be alone anymore

I know a place where I can go when I'm alone
Into your arms whoa into your arms I can go
I can go...
