Suede "Trash"



Grupo: Suede
Canción: Trash
Disco: Coming Up
Estilo: Jangle pop, Indie pop







Maybe, maybe it's the clothes we wear,
The tasteless bracelets and the dye in our hair,
Maybe it's our kookiness,
Or maybe, maybe it's our nowhere towns,
Our nothing places and our cellophane sounds,
Maybe it's our looseness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the streets,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do...

Maybe, maybe it's the things we say,
The words we've heard and the music we play,
Maybe it's our cheapness,
Or maybe, maybe it's the times we've had,
The lazy days and the crazes and the fads,
Maybe it's our sweetness,

But we're trash, you and me,
We're the litter on the breeze,
We're the lovers on the street,
Just trash, me and you,
It's in everything we do,
It's in everything we do...

Tom Waits "Tom Traubert´s Blues (four sheets to the..)



Grupo: Tom Waits
Canción: Tom Traubert´s Blues (four sheets to the ...)
Disco: Small Change (1976)
Estilo: Rock Experimental





Wasted and wounded, it ain't what the moon did, I've got what I paid for now
See you tomorrow, hey Frank, can I borrow a couple of bucks from you
To go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

I'm an innocent victim of a blinded alley
And I'm tired of all these soldiers here
No one speaks English, and everything's broken, and my Stacys are soaking wet
To go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

Now the dogs are barking and the taxi cab's parking
A lot they can do for me
I begged you to stab me, you tore my shirt open,
And I'm down on my knees tonight
Old Bushmill's I staggered, you'd bury the dagger
In your silhouette window light go
To go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

Now I lost my Saint Christopher now that I've kissed her
And the one-armed bandit knows
And the maverick Chinamen, and the cold-blooded signs,
And the girls down by the strip-tease shows, go
Waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

No, I don't want your sympathy, the fugitives say
That the streets aren't for dreaming now
And manslaughter dragnets and the ghosts that sell memories,
They want a piece of the action anyhow
Go waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

And you can ask any sailor, and the keys from the jailor,
And the old men in wheelchairs know
And Mathilda's the defendant, she killed about a hundred,
And she follows wherever you may go
Waltzing Mathilda, waltzing Mathilda,
You'll go waltzing Mathilda with me

And it's a battered old suitcase to a hotel someplace,
And a wound that will never heal
No prima donna, the perfume is on an
Old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey
And goodnight to the street sweepers, the night watchmen flame keepers
And goodnight to Mathilda, too

The Rolling Stones "Out of Time"


Grupo: The Rolling Stones
Canción: Out of time
Disco: Flowers (1967)
Estilo: Todos



You don't know what's going on, you've been gone for far too long
you can't come back and think you are still mine

You're out of touch, my baby, my poor discarded baby
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well, baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
Yes, you are left out, yes, you are
I said you're left out of there without a doubt
'cause baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

A girl who wants to run away, discovers that she's had her day
It's no good thinking that you are still mine
You're out of touch, my baby, my poor unfaithful baby
I said baby...

You thought you were a clever girl giving up your social whirl
But you can't come back and be the first in line
You're obsolete, my baby, my poor oldfashioned baby
I said baby...

Guadalcanal Diary "I see Moe"


Grupo: Gudalcanal Diary
Canción: I see Moe
Disco: Jamboree (1986)
Estilo: Pop Rock Alternativo



I see Moe, I see Moe
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I see Moe

I'm alone, I'm all alone
but I never see Larry or Curly
I just see Moe

I don't know what's wrong, Moe is dead and gone
but part of him lives on in me

Now I got friend, yeah that's for sure
but Larry and Curly don't come around much anymore

I don't know what's wrong, Moe is dead and gone
but part of him lives on in me

And I see Moe, I see Moe
Sometimes when I look in the mirror
I see Moe



Este personaje no tiene nada que ver con la cancion que es de 1986 y el es posterior

Hoodoo Gurus "Crackin´ On"







Grupo: Hoodoo Gurus
Canción: Crackin´ On
Disco: The Purity of Esence (2010)
Estilo: Rock Aussie, Power Pop



Los Hoodoo Gurus han sacado un nuevo disco, hacia tiempo que no pasaba eso, pero es que ademas es muy bueno y no lo digo desde la nostalgia de recordar sonidos del pasado, de cuando tenia veinte años. No, el disco es bueno y punto. Se podria decir que quien tuvo retuvo. En todo caso me parece una maravilla de disco.

The Go-Go´s "Ours lips are sealed"


Grupo: The Go-Gos, quinteto formado en Los Angeles en 1978 y disuelto en 1985
Canción: Our lips are sealed
Disco: Beauty and the Beat (1981) Primer Disco
Estilo: New Wave




Can you hear them
They talk about us
Telling lies
Well, that's no surprise

Can you see them
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

There's a weapon
That we must use
In our defense
Silence reveals

When you look at them
Look right through them
That's when they'll disappear
That's when we'll be feared

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

Give no mind to what they say
It doesn't matter anyway
Our lips are sealed

Hush, my darling
Don't you cry
Quiet, angel
Forget their lies

Can you hear them
They talk about us
Telling lies
Well, that's no surprise

Can you see them
See right through them
They have no shield
No secrets to reveal

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed

Pay no mind to what they say
It doesn't matter anyway
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed

Guided by Voices "Teenage FBI"


Grupo: Guided by Voices

Disco: Do the Colapse (1999)
Estilo: Post Punk, LO-FI, Indie Pock


Prolifica banda de Indie Rock, formada en 1985 en Dayton (OH), durante estos veinticinco años, han publicado mas de veinte discos con canciones tan brillantes como esta


Someone tell me why
I do the things
That I don't want to do?

When you're around me
I'm somebody else

Someone tell my why
I act like a fool
When things don't go my way
And you're around me?
I'm somebody else

There is good reason I guess
Having it once gone to far
When you clean out the hive
Does it make you want to cry?
Are you still being followed
By the Teenage FBI
Someone tell me why

Canción: Rock Lobster
Disco: The B-52´s, Primer disco (1979)

We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock lobster!

Rock Lobster!!!

Rock Lobster!!!

We were at the beach
Everybody had matching towels
Somebody went under a dock
And there they saw a rock
It wasn't a rock
It was a rock lobster!

Rock Lobster!!!
Rock Lobster!!!
((High Pitched)) Rock Lobster!!!

Rock Lobster!!!
Rock Lobster!!!

Commotion in the ocean
His air hose broke!
Lots of troubles!
Lots of bubbles!
He was in a jam!
(He wa)s'in a giant clam!!!

Rock, Rock

Rock Lobster!!!
Down, down...

Underneath the waves
Mermaids wavin'
Wavin' to mermen
Wavin' sea fans
Sea horses sailin'
Dolphins wailin'

Rock Lobster!!!
((High Pitched)) Rock Lobster!!!

Rock Lobster!!!
Rock Lobster!!!
Oooo aah!
Oooo aah!
Red snappers snappin'
Oooo aah!
Clam shells clappin'
Oooo aah!
Muscles flexin'
Oooo aah!
Flippers flippin'
Oooo aah!

Rock, Rock,
Rock Lobster
Down! Down!

Lobster... Rock
Lobster... Rock

Let's rock!!!

Boys and bikinis
Girls and surfboards
Everybody's rockin'
Everybody's frugin'

Twistin' round the fire
Havin' fun!

Bakin' potatoes
Bakin' in the sun!

Put on your noseguard
Hit on the Lifeguard
Pass the tanning butter

Here comes a stingray
There goes a mantaray
In walked a jelly fish
There goes a dogfish
Chased by a catfish
In flew a sea robin
Watch out for that piranha!
There goes a narwhal
HERE COMES A BIKINI WHALE!

Lobster rock lobster
ROCK LOBSTER
lobster rock ay ay ah ah
ROCK LOBSTER
lobster rock lobster
ROCK LOBSTER
Lobster rock ay ay ah ah oo
ROCK LOBSTER
Ay ay ah ah oo
Ay ay ah ah oo

You am I "Gray"


Grupo: You am I (Australia)
Canción: Gray
Disco: Hi Fi Way (1995)
Estilo: Power Pop, Indie Rock



Drunk at Cannon Falls
I never made the call
I had your number
It was chiselled on my hand and stained
Fell asleep to the line
Lyle sung "She's made up her mind"
Now I'm the twenty first descendant of the age and

I don't want it getting 'round town
'cause you'll kick my skinny ass if you ever saw me down
I can deny it 'til they all gone away
But I just don't think we'll ever get that other band together

Tried on all of your clothes
But even me and your girlfriend know
That there's only so much one guy
Can steal and so

We'll all choke on the slack
Try like hell to dream you back
Of the nothing I got
You know that you've always got half a soul

Snow Patrol "Wow"


Grupo: Snow Patrol, Dundee, Escocia, 1994
Canción: Wow
Disco: Final Straw (2004) Tercer disco de su carrera
Estilo: Indie Rock



Don't be scared of anything at all
Everything we have is all we need
All the spotlights streaming into angry skies
Means there's no one watching as we leave

Say the first thing that
comes into your mind when you see me
If it looks likes it works and it feels like it works
then it works
With the sun on your face
all these worries will soon disappear
Just follow me now

I find careful patterns in the snow
It seems you did come round but changed your mind
If you'd just take ten more steps to me
I won't ever ask you again

Just because I couldn't say doesn't make me a liar
I noticed a change in the tone of your voice
it's so clear
My role in this mess
is not something that I can be proud of
But it's all going to change
