Hit the road (IV): Woke up this morning (Alabama 3)

La música que escucha Tony Soprano en el camino que recorre desde el New Jersey Turnpike hasta su mansión tiene que estar forzosamente en esta selección.

Una apuesta curiosa la de los creadores de esta serie: una canción de un grupo londinense de acid jazz, nada menos. Pero no por curiosa menos acertada. Seis temporadas, ocho años en total sirviendo de inicio a la que es, para mí, sin discusión, la mejor serie de la historia de la televisión.

WOKE UP THIS MORNING

You woke up this morning got yourself a gun,
mama always said you’d be the chosen one.
She said: you’re one in a million you’ve got to burn to shine,
but you were born under a bad sign, with a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning all that love had gone,
your papa never told you about right and wrong.
But you’re looking good, baby, I believe you’re feeling fine (shame about it),
born under a bad sign with a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning  got a blue moon in your eyes
you woke up this morning got a blue moon in your eyes

You woke up this morning the world turned upside down,
thing’s ain’t been the same since the blues walked into town.
but you’re one in a million you’ve got that shotgun shine (shame about it)
born under a bad sign, with a blue moon in your eyes.

you woke up this morning got a blue moon in your eyes
you woke up this morning got a blue moon in your eyes

When you woke up this morning everything you had was gone by half past ten your head was going ding-dong.ringing like a bell from your head down to your toes, like a voice telling you there was something you should know. Last night you were flying but today you’re so low – ain’t it times like these that make you wonder if you’ll ever know the meaning of things as they appear to the others; wives, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers. Don’t you wish you didn’t function, don’t you wish you didn’t think beyond the next paycheck and the next little drink? well you do so make up your mind to go on, ‘cos when you woke up this morning everything you had was gone.

Woke up this morning, woke up this morning,
woke up this morning, you wanna be the chosen one.
Woke up this morning, woke up this morning,
woke up this morning, you got yourself a gun.
