Evocando a REM

Maldita sea, ¡como los empiezo a echar de menos!... Me costó creer en su momento que finalizasen su carrera y a día de hoy reconozco, que se me hace duro asimilar que nunca volveré a disfrutar esto, frente a frente como aquella vez...

No se me ocurre canción mejor... quizás porque es mi favorita.






You took me to the restaurant where we first met
You knocked a future shock crowbar upside my head
I got caught with the stop of the tick-tock, tick-tock clock
When you told me what you knew

Lost in the moment
The day that the music stopped
And I do remember you

Drawing patterns with a cork on the tablecloth
Promising volcanic change of plot
Where will this lead us - I'm scared of the storm
The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born

I tried to tell you I am not afraid
You looked up and saw it all across my face
So am I with you or am I against
I don't think it's that easy - we're lost in regret

Now I'm trying to remember
The feeling when the music stopped
When you told me what you knew

Lost in the moment
The day that the music stopped
And I do remember you

Drawing patterns with a cork on the tablecloth
Promising volcanic change of plot
Where does this leave us - I'm scared of the storm
The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born

Drawing patterns with a cork on the tablecloth
Promising volcanic change of plot
Where does this leave us - I'm scared of the storm
The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born

The outsiders are gathering, a new day is born
The outsiders are gathering

A man walks away when every muscle says to stay
How many yesterdays - they each weigh heavy
Who says what changes may come?
Who says what we call home?
I know you see right through me, my luminescence fades
The dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid
I've been a million times in my mind
This is really just a technicality, frailty, reality

Uh, it's time to breathe, time to believe
Let it go and run towards the sea
They don't teach that, they don't know what you mean
They don't understand, they don't know what you mean
They don't get it, I wanna scream
I wanna breathe again, I wanna dream
I wanna float a quote from Martin Luther King
I am not afraid
I am not afraid
I am not afraid

Pues qué caprichosicos que son los favoritismos, porque para mí es una canción del montón de los REM.

Mi favorita, así a botepronto, podría ser "at my most beautiful". se aceptan críicas al respecto.

Bon dia.

Existe un problema. Y es que no puedo ser crítica, porque nada que pueda ser interpretado por Michael Stipe, me puede parecer del montón jejeje.
Lo de los favoritismos caprichosicos es algo maravillosos. Deben existir y ser tan diversos como son, puesto que si no, "Loosing my Religion" sería la favorita de toooodo el mundo, y sería aburridísimo.
Bueno, mi favorita (en directo) es esta -para mí, cuando la tocaron en vivo, fue la experiencia más aproximada a entrar en trance que he tenido-. Pero reconozco que siempre ando debatiéndome entre ella y "Nightswimming"...

Bona tarda.

Nightswimming es una canción "pelopollo" con todas las de la ley...

Bona nit
