Covers

Casi nunca un cover (adaptación de una canción de otro) iguala el original. Los colecciono y doy fe de ello. Alguno llega a ser una revisión interesante del origen pero casi nunca mejores. Hasta hace poco había una excepción. La que hizo F.E.V.E.R. del "Disintegration" de The Cure (tengo 349 covers de The Cure.... y esta no está en el youtube). Gracias a mi amigo portugués que escribe en Poquer-red, tengo otro. La versión del "Along the Watchtower" de Dylan que hizo Jimmy Hendrix. Estoy dudando aún si lo que me hizo escuchar es lo mas brutal que ha hecho nunca nadie con una guitarra. Lo comparo con la entrada del "Layla" de Eric Clapton y con el solo en vivo del "Sultans of Swing" de Dire Straits, con Mark Knopfler a las cuerdas y no me decido....
Hay que decir que Dylan, en algunos conciertos, presentó una versión algo mas
cañera de su tema. No fué el caso de la única vez que le vi en vivo, en el Monte do Gozo, en Santiago. Sustituyó a David Bowie y tocó entre Muse y The Cure. Ese día mereció morir lapidado.

Repaso "Disintegration", por si me he equivocado. Oh i miss the kis of treachery, the shameless kiss of vanity... Para empezar. Para acabar... Songs about happiness, murmured in dreams, when we both of us knew how the end always is... En medio... Holding my breath for the fear of sleep again...
Es palabra de Robert Smith. Palabra de Dios (con permiso de David Bowie). Pero F.E.V.E.R. la musicaron mejor, Robert, my friend...

Nota: La versión de F.E.V.E.R. me la podéis pillar a través del soulseek (DarkSideOfSoul) o de la mula. Buen comienzo de año, señores y señoras....


Dejo la letra completa de
"Disintegration".

Oh i miss the kiss of treachery
the shameless kiss of vanity
the soft and the black and the velvety
up tight against the side of me
and mouth and eyes and heart all bleed
and run in thickening streams of greed
as bit by bit it starts the need
to just let go my party piece
-
Oh i miss the kiss of treachery
the aching kiss before i feed
the stench of a love for a younger meat
and the sound that it makes when it cuts in deep
the holding up on bended knees
the addiction of duplicities
as bit by bit it starts the need
to just let go my party piece
-
But i never said i would stay to the end
so i leave you with babies and hoping for frequency
screaming like this in the hope of the secrecy
screaming me over and over and over
i leave you with photographs, pictures of trickery
stains on the carpet and stains on the scenery
songs about happiness murmured in dreams
when we both us knew
how the ending would be...
-
So it's all come back round to breaking apart again
breking apart like i'm made up of glass again
making it up behind my back again
holding my breath for the fear of sleep again
holding it up behind my head again
cut in deep to the heart of the bone again
round and round and round
and it's coming apart again over and over and over
-
Now that i know that i'm breaking to pieces
i'll pull out my heart and i'll feed it to anyone
crying for sympathy
crocodile cry for the love of the crowd
and the three cheers from everyone
dropping through sky through the glass of the roof
through the roof of your mouth
through the mouth of your eye
through the eye of the needle
it's easier for me to get closer to heaven
than ever feel whole again
-
I never said i would stay to the end
i knew I would leave you with babies and everything
screaming like this in the hole of sincerity
screaming me over and over and over
i leave you with photographs, pictues of trickery
stains on the carpet and stains on the memory
songs about happiness murmured in dreams
when we both of us knewhow the end always is...
-
how the end always is...

Thanks!

Pero si no dominas el inglés, podías haber escrito en español.

Y los inocentes son el 28/12 en España y el 1 de abril (creo) en el mundo anglosajón, el april´s fools day.

A mi me grabaste en un cd una versión de "Disintegration" de un grupo que se llama Decadence. Es muy dulce...

No. No TE la grabé. TE la llevaste...
Era una selección de canciones pensadas para dormir. Todas "dulces", esencialmente. Para dulces sueños...
