So good at doing
What you don't do
Just trying to protect yourself
And other fools like you
So well practised
In your deceit
Behind the high walls of stupidity
Your endless conceit
Behind the locked door
The sleeping dog you beat
I hope I see the day
She satisfies her teeth

Give back to the native
Their treaty land
What you preach you preach for others
Why don't you practice that firsthand

I just don't understand
This world of mine
I must be out of touch
Or out of my mind
And will the profits of destruction
Forever make your eyes blind
Do you bow to the corporations
'Cause they pay their bills on time

God bless Elijah
With the feather in his hand
Stop stealing the Indian land
Stop stealing the Indian land
Stop stealing the Indian land

The Clash "Should stay or I should I go"

Esta claro que hoy es San Sebastian y quien no sabe ese dato demuestra muy poca cultura. Yo, que soy un inculto, no tenía ni idea de esa dato pero, siendo quien es, un gran amigo e insigne empresario del mundo de la publicidad, sólo podía poner esta canción, buena y cojonuda y de gente ya criticada en su momento. Si estás a tiempo comprate unos levis.

Sussana Hoffs "All I want"

Grupo/Interprete: Sussana Hoffs
Canción: All I want
Disco: Sussana Hoffs (1996)
Hoy cumple 52 años Sussana Hoffs, cantante de Bangles. Tras la separación del grupo, inició una carrera en solitario con dos discos publicados, ha realizado con Mathew Sweet dos discos de versiones y en la década pasada volvió a unirse con sus antiguas compañeras de Bangles. Esta canción aparece en su segundo disco en solitario y es una versión de la conocida canción de Lightning Seeds.

You can't ignore or hide away
Can't escape from the things that line our way
Take it, leave it, or break it
Anyway, you can't get back to yesterday

All I want, all I want to do
You better listen from now on
Stop what's going on, stop what's going wrong
You better listen from now on

Confidence, coincidence, call it a sin
It's just like people say
Tomorrow's here so open up you're eyes
Never hesitate

It makes me want to give you everything
Pick you up and take you home again
Hold you tight and think that now is then
All I want to do

All I want to do
Is make you listen from now on
Cardboard men are strong, but paper can be torn
Oh, you better listen from now on

Neutral Milk Hotel "In the aeroplane over the sea"

Disco: In the aeropane over the sea (1998)
Estilo: Lo-Fi, indie Rock, Neo-psicodelia, Fuzz-folk

Esta banda de Athens, sólo publicó dos discos. La canción que se acompaña es de su segundo (y último disco). Variedad de estilos e influencias para realizar canciones intensas y emocionantes. Sencillamente brillantes.

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
And now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all

The Jayhawks "Bad Time"


Grupo/Interprete: The Jayhawks
Canción: Bad Time
Disco: Tomorow the green grass (1995)
Estilo: Country Rock Alternativo

Esta es una de las canciones más conocidas de esta banda de Minneapolis, formada en 1985, y que este año publicará un nuevo disco de estudio.

I'm in love with the girl I'm talking about
I'm in love with a girl I can't live without
I'm in love but I sure picked a bad time

To be in love
To be in love

Well, let her be somebody else's queen
I don't want to hear about it
There's too many others who know what I mean
And that's why I've got to live without

Because I'm in love with a girl I'm talking about
I'm in love with a girl I can't live without
I'm in love but feels like I'm living it out
I'm in love but I must've picked
A bad time to be in love
Bad time to be in love
Bad time to be in love

All the stories come back to me
From my friends and the people I don't want to see
Well all the stories they just couldn't be true
At least until I hear 'em from you

Montana "Towtruck"

Grupo/Interprete: Montana
Canción: Towtruck
Disco: Bubblegum love
Estilo: Power pop, indie pop.

Esta mañana cuando he arrancado el coche ha aparecido esta canción que me apetece compartir con todos aquellos que tienen el evidente buen gusto de ver este blog.

Say you
Say me
If he drives you’ll need a tow-truck baby
He’s outta home for the first time maybe

What is her name?
I hear it sounds like a church spire
Is she the same as me?

Talk loud
Say it like you mean it
Cos you and I know it’s never gonna work out
Cos of the girls that you did when we were going out

Shirts smell clean on you
Oh but she’s wearing the pants now
But she can wait for another time

Cabin fever
Peace offering pays me off well
Do you know who I am?
I still love you
But it could never be like that
And I will always be your friend.

The Cavalcade "Voices"

Grupo/Interprete: The Cavalcade
Canción: Vioces
Disco: Many Moons

Esta canción se encuentra en el primer disco de larga duración de esta banda de Preston (Reino Unido). El disco fue publicado el pasado año y no hace si no confirmar lo ya dicho anteriormente en cuanto a la calidad y cantidad de buenos discos publicados el pasado año. La banda anteriormente había publicado un par de Ep´s y sus influencias son claras en cuanto a The Smith y por momento a Belle and Sebastian y, por que no, a Teenage Fanclub.

Treble Charger "How she died"

Grupo/Interprete: Treble Charger
Canción: How she died
Disco: Maybe it´s me (1997)
Estilo: Pop Rock Alternativo

Canción de esta veterana banda canadiense que se encuentra en su tercer disco.

You got the best of me
It didn't take so long
The things you put me through
Seem to be so wrong

You did not lie
It's far beyong you
You've said you tried
You cannot prove it

I close my eyes
I don't wanna find out how she died
Foolish pride
You can't expect to turn away tonight

You've seen the last of me
Don't have to take my hand
You shouldn't try so hard
So hard to understand

I've seen the end
Just waiting for me
No time to spend
To doubt a moment

I can't stand to agonize
On what I've lied, apologize
It's far beyond your sense of play
It's anywhere and everywhere

Aztec Camera "Pillar to post"


Grupo/Interprete: Aztec Camera
Canción: Pillar to post
Disco: High land, hard rain (1983)
Estilo: Indie Pop,

Pedazo de canción que se encuetra en el primer disco de esta banda escocesa creada en 1980 y que a día de hoy siguen en activo. Hay que empezar este año con optimismo y todo eso.

So you appear and say how I've grown
and fill me up with faces I've known.
In this light they're far from divine
I'll save them up and spend them when I have time.

The salted taste of all your tears and woes
Sent me in haste my melancholy rose
Those tasteless lips were closed
You watched me come, you'll see me go.

Once I was happy in happy extremes
Packing my bags for the path of the free
From pillar to post I am driven it seems
These bitter tokens are worthless to me

Just like June the curtains are closed
The ghost of shame he sits here and sighs
I'll love the flames like I've loved the cold
I'll learn to love the life of the "could I, could I, could I"
So I don't cross my fingers any more
You looked for rags and found them at your door
How could you ask for more
Than everything you've heard before?

Once I was happy in happy extremes
Packing my bags for the path of the free
From pillar to post I am driven it seems
These bitter tokens are worthless to me
