Guess… (IV): I am a man of constant sorrow (The Soggy Bottom Boys)

Pedazo de peli, como casi todas las de los Hermanos Coen (voy a quedarme ahí, por no ponerme dogmático), diga usted que sí, esto es un “Ulises” y no lo del plasta de Joyce 😉 Pero sobre todo, también es la pista final, con algo de truco… En efecto, la pista NO es el grupo real que canta y toca (Union Station se llama), sino el grupo “vocal” que aparece en la peli… Ahí va el vídeo oficial:

Supongo que con ésta ya es fácil… al menos para los que conocen lo suficiente a George Clooney como para saber que compartimos cumpleaños (nótese lo sutil de la redacción :-)). Y también compartimos cumple con John Flansburgh (el gordito gafapasta con cara de pringao de They Might Be Giants), con Chris Shifflets (el guitarra solista de los Foo Fighters) y con Bob Seger. Bueno, tal vez era complicado, pero este mes me apetecía dedicármelo a mí, qué coño… y si de paso habéis escuchado algo de música diferente y que os haya podido llamar la atención, pues misión cumplida!!!

Se me olvida algo, se me olvida algo…

Hostia, la letra!!!!

I AM A MAN OF CONSTANT SORROW

I am a man of constant sorrow
I’ve seen trouble all my day.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.
(The place where he was born and raised)

For six long years I’ve been in trouble
No pleasures here on earth I found
For in this world I’m bound to ramble
I have no friends to help me now.
(He has no friends to help him now)

It’s fare thee well my old lover
I never expect to see you again
For I’m bound to ride that northern railroad
Perhaps I’ll die upon this train.
(Perhaps he’ll die upon this train.)

You can bury me in some deep valley
For many years where I may lay
Then you may learn to love another
While I am sleeping in my grave.
(While he is sleeping in his grave.)

Maybe your friends think I’m just a stranger
My face you’ll never see no more.
But there is one promise that is given
I’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.
(He’ll meet you on God’s golden shore.)

Guess… (III): Old time rock’n’roll (Bob Seger)

Bueno, pues tercera pista… y ya es muuuuuuuuuuucho más fácil, dónde va a parar… sobre todo si tiráis de wiki 😉

Para no perderse el vídeo original (ya no disponible en youtube, ya sabés…), desde luego… y dónde estabas tú cuando estrenaron Risky Business? 🙂

OLD TIME ROCK’N’ROLL

Just take those old records off the shelf
I’ll sit and listen to ‘em by myself
Today’s music ain ‘t got the same soul
I like that old time rock ‘n’ roll

Don’t try to take me to a disco
You’ll never even get me out on the floor
In ten minutes I’ll be late for the door
I like that old time rock’n’ roll

Still like that old time rock’n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock ‘n’ roll

Won’t go to hear them play a tango
I’d rather hear some blues or funky old soul
There’s only sure way to get me to go
Start playing old time rock ‘n’ roll

Call me a relic, call me what you will
Say I’m old-fashioned, say I’m over the hill
Today’ music ain’t got the same soul
I like that old time rock ‘n’ roll

Still like that old time rock’n’ roll
That kind of music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock ‘n’ roll

Guess… (II): The best of you (Foo Fighters)

Complicado todavía, lo sé, lo sé, es completamente premeditado 🙂 En fin, para los que os gusta el grunge, aquí os dejo a unos más que dignos sucesores (en más de un sentido) de Nirvana: Foo Fighters, la banda de Dave Grohl. Y para los que no os gusta, o no mucho, dadle una oportunidad a este tema, hombre, que el amigo Dave se deja la garganta arañada, el tío…

THE BEST OF YOU

I’ve got another confession to make
I’m your fool
Everyone’s got their chains to break
Holdin’ you

Were you born to resist, or be abused?

Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?

Or are you gone and onto someone new?

I needed somewhere to hang my head
Without your noose
You gave me something that I didn’t have
But had no use
I was too weak to give in
Too strong to lose

My heart is under arrest again
But I’ll break loose
My head is giving me life or death
But I can’t choose
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse

Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?

Has someone taken your faith?
It’s real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must confess

Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?

Has someone taken your faith?
It’s real, the pain you feel
The life, the love
You’d die to heal
The hope that starts
The broken hearts
You trust, you must confess

Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?

I’ve got another confession my friend
I’m no fool
I’m getting tired of starting again
Somewhere new

Were you born to resist, or be abused?
I swear I’ll never give in, I refuse

Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
It’s real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must confess

Is someone getting the best
The best, the best, the best of you?
