Mick Jagger - God Gave Me Everything

Mi Comentario:
Está en todas partes: en la brisa de la mañana, en el calor del sol, en esos ojos que me deslumbraron en la mañana, en el recuerdo de unos labios que no cesan de besar.
Gracias! Porque lo soy y lo que tengo, es gracias a Vos! ;)


Facts!
- Lenny Kravitz le ayudó a Jagger a escribir y producir esta canción, y también tocó la guitarra. Kravitz a menudo le abre los conciertos a los Rolling Stones.
- Este fue el primer sencillo del disco Goddess In The Doorway, que fue el primer disco en solitario de Jagger desde 1993. El vocalista de los Stones no es conocido por su espiritualidad, pero en esta pieza es muy explícito sobre sus sentimientos hacia Dios.
- Muy apropiadamente esta canción forma parte del soundtrack de la película Bruce Almighty (Todopoderoso)




Lyrics
You can see it in a clear blue sky
You can see it in a woman’s eyes
You can hear it in your baby’s cries
You can hear it in your lover’s sighs
You can touch it in a grain of sand
Yeah hold it right there
In the palm of your hand
Feel it ‘round you everyday
And hear what I’ve got to say

God gave me everything I want
Come on
I’ll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want
Come on
I’ll give it all to you

I saw it in the midnight sun
And I felt it in the race I won
And I hear it in the windy storm
And I feel it in the icy dawn
And I smell it in the wine I taste
And I see it in my father’s face
And I hear it in a symphony
And I feel it in the love
You show for me

Yeah
God gave me everything I want
Come on
I’ll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want

Come on
I’ll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want
I can’t stop can’t stop
I’m still looking now
God gave me everything I want
Oh come on
I’ll give it all to you

Crazy you said
It’s all in your head

God gave me everything I want
Come on
I’ll give it all to you
God gave me everything I want
Come on
I’ll give it all to you

Deep Purple – Smoke on the Water

Mi Comentario:
Nadie que se precie ser rockero puede decir que no ha oído esta canción, aunque más que una canción es casi un himno.
Más que un relato de un incendio ocurrido en Montreux, Suiza, esta canción llegó a ser uno de los más grandes éxitos de Deep Purple (y casi sin querer, ya que los integrantes de la banda no le tenían mucha fe a la canción) y se convirtió en uno de los riffs más famosos (si no el más famoso) entre todos aquellos novatos que empiezan a aprender guitarra eléctrica.
En esos momentos de inspiración rockera, puedo ver el humo en el agua y el fuego en el cielo! Más Rock que eso...imposible!




Lyrics
We all came out to Montreux
On the Lake Geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didn't have much time
Frank Zappa and the Mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground

Smoke on the water,
a fire in the sky,
smoke on the water

They burned down the gamblin' house,
It died with an awful sound
and Funky Claude was running in and out
Pulling kids out the ground
When it all was over
We had to find another place
But Swiss time was running out
It seemed that we would lose the race

Smoke on the water,
a fire in the sky,
smoke on the water

We ended up at the Grand Hotel
It was empty cold and bare
But with the Rolling truck Stones thing just outside
Making our music there
With a few red lights and a few old beds
We make a place to sweat
No matter what we get out of this
I know, I know we'll never forget

Smoke on the water,
a fire in the sky,
smoke on the water

Café Tacvba – Las Flores / La Huasanga

Mi Comentario:
Todavía no entiendo porque a este Unplugged MTV no le dio pelota en su momento sino hasta muchos años después. Alejandro Flores y su violín, están en todas! De ese disco, rescato esta canción, y el largo verso del final.




Lyrics
Ayyyyyy...
Ven y dime todas esas cosas,
invitame a sentarme junto a ti.
Escucharé todos tus sueños
en mi oido.

Y déjame estrechar tus manos,
y regalarte unas pocas de ilusiones.
Ay, ven y cuéntame una historia
que me haga sentir bien.

Yo te escucharé
con todo el silencio del planeta,
y miraré tus ojos
como si fueran los últimos de este país.

Ayyyyyy...
Déjame ver cómo es que floreces
con cinco pétalos te absorberé,
cinco sentidos que te roban
sólo un poco de tu ser.

Y seis veces para vivirte
debajo de una misma luna,
y otras nueve pasarán para
sentir que nuevas flores nacerán.

Y que cada estrella
fuese una flor,
y asi regalarte
todo un racimo de estrellas.

No dejes que amanezca,
no dejes que la noche caiga,
no dejes que el sol salga,
sólo dejame estar junto a ti.

Ay la la la ...
Cuando estoy en mis excesos
contigo en grande emoción,
quisiera con embelesos,
arrancarte el corazón,
arrancarte el corazón
y comérmelo a besos.

Ay la ra ra ...
Yo te juro y te prometo
como siempre te he querido
que si tu amor es completo
cumpleme lo prometido
yo no quiero que otro prieto
quiera lo que yo he querido

Ay la ra ray la ra ra...
Mariquita quita, quita,
quitame dolor y pena...
Debajo de tu rebozo,
se pasa una noche buena...
Buena es la buena memoria...
Memoria del que se acuerda...
Se acuerda de San Francisco...
San Francisco no es Esteban...
Esteban no es ningun Santo...
Santo es aquél que le reza...
Rezan los padres maitines...
Los Maitines no son completos...
Completas eran las mañas...
Las mañas de un hechicero...
Hechicero es el que le urde...
Urde la mujer su tela...
Tela la del buen sedazo...
Sedazo de harina y cuerda...
Cuerda la de los cochinos...
Los cochinos tragan hierba...
De la hierba nace el trigo...
El trigo es el que se siembra...
Se siembra porque es costumbre
dijo un viejito al pasar,
y lo echaron a la lumbre
porque no supo trovar
y lo echaron a la lumbre
porque no supo trovar.

KT Tunstall – Heal Over

Mi Comentario:
Esta es para desestresarse...para encontrar esa sanación que a veces necesitamos en las heridas que nos deja en el cuerpo las batallas de cada día.




Lyrics
It isn't very difficult to see why
You are the way you are
Doesn't take a genius to realise
That sometimes life is hard
It's gonna take time
But you'll just have to wait
You're gonna be fine
But in the meantime

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Coz you'll heal over
Heal over
Heal over someday

And I don't wanna hear you tell yourself
That these feelings are in the past
No it doesn't mean they're off the shelf
Because pain's built to last
Everybody sails alone
Oh but we can travel side by side
Even if you fail
You know that no one really minds

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Coz you'll heal over
Heal over
Heal over someday

Don't hold on but don't let go
I know it's so hard
You've got to try to trust yourself
I know it's so hard, so hard

Come over here lady
Let me wipe your tears away
Come a little nearer baby
Coz you'll heal over
Heal over
Heal over someday

Yeah you're gonna heal over

Apocalyptica – Life Burns

Mi Comentario:
Siempre me pareció interesante la propuesta de Apocalytica, esa combinación de cuerdas y metales única. Otra que se le acerca mucho: The Vitamin String Quartet.
Dedicada a Maciel, donde sea que estés: LIFE BURNS!!!! ;)






Lyrics
We break our enemies with fear, and
we've seen how the tears come around
We've built our confidence on wasteland
We've seen how the walls come down

Life burns

A man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
All things must pass
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil
We pray it would last

Life burns

We have no sympathy for the lost souls
we've chosen the path of disgrace
We give this life to our children
and teach them to hate this place

A man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
All things must pass
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil
We pray it would last

A man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
One love is a crooked lie
(The world lies in the hands of evil 5 x)

A man dies like a butterfly
Life burns from the touch of the reaper
All things must pass
One love is a crooked lie
The world lies in the hands of evil
We pray it would last

Life burns (3 x)

Creed – What If

Mi Comentario:
La primera vez que oí a esta gente me engaño la voz de Scott Stapp confundiéndome con nuestro amigo amante de las Imperiales, Eddie Vedder. Excelente canción, video....les he visto mejores.




Lyrics
I can't find the rhyme in all my reason
I've lost sense of time and all seasons
I feel I've been beaten down
By the words of men who have no grounds
I can't sleep beneath the trees of wisdom
When your axe has cut the roots that feed them
Forked tongues in bitter mouths
Can drive a man to bleed from inside out

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I've seen the wicked fruit of your vine
Destroy the man who lacks a strong mind
Human pride sings a vengeful song,
Inspired by the times we've been walked on
My stage is shared by many millions
Who lift their hands up high because they feel this
We are one We are strong
The more you hold us down the more we press on

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?

I know I can't hold the hate inside my mind
What consumes your thoughts controls your life
So I'll just ask a question
A lonely, simple question
I'll just ask one question

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I? (Repeat 4 times)

What if you did?
What if you lied?
What if I avenge?
What if eye for an eye?
What if your words could be judged like a crime?

What if
What if
What if
What if
What if I? (Repeat 4 times)

Megadeth & Cristina Scabbia - A Tout Le Monde (Set Me Free)

Mi Comentario:
Siempre me ha parecido que el coro de esta canción (bueno, en general toda la canción) sería perfecto para inscribirlo en una lápida:

A tout le monde (To everybody)
A tout les amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I have to leave)
These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free


PD: Cristina Scabbia...;P Por italianas así es por lo que algún día viajaré al país en forma de bota!!!




Lyrics
Don't remember where I was
I realized life was a game
The more seriously I took things
The harder the rules became
I had no idea what it'd cost
My life passed before my eyes
I found out how little I accomplished
All my plans denied

So as you read this know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all
Smile when you think of me
My body's gone that's all

A tout le monde (To all the world)
A tout les amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I have to leave)
These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

If my heart was still alive
I know it would surely break
And my memories left with you
There's nothing more to say

Moving on is a simple thing
What it leaves behind is hard
You know the sleeping feel no more pain
And the living are scarred

A tout le monde (To everybody)
A tout les amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I have to leave)
These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

So as you read this know my friends
I'd love to stay with you all
Please smile, smile when you think about me
My body's gone that's all

A tout le monde (To everybody)
A tout les amis (To all my friends)
Je vous aime (I love you)
Je dois partir (I have to leave)
These are the last words
I'll ever speak
And they'll set me free

Counting Crows - Big Yellow Taxi

Mi Comentario:
No fue un taxi amarillo el que se llevó a mi chica, si no fue en uno de los rojos en el que yo me alejé de ella. No me canso de oír esta canción, ni tampoco de pensar en ella...definitivamente otro clásico personal.




Lyrics
They paved paradise and put up a parkin' lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin' hot spot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parkin' lot

They took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum
And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them
No, no, no, don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise, and put up a parkin' lot

Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT
I don't care about spots on my apples,
Leave me the birds and the bees - please
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Hey now, they've paved paradise to put up a parking lot
Why not?

Listen, late last night, I heard the screen door swing,
And a big yellow taxi took my girl away
Now don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Hey now now, don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
They paved paradise to put up a parking lot
Why not, they paved paradise
They put up a parking lot
Hey hey hey, paved paradise and put up a parking lot

I don't wanna give it
Why you wanna give it
Why you wanna givin it all away
Hey, hey, hey
Now you wanna give it
I should wanna give it
Cuz you're givin it all away, no no

I don't wanna give it
Why you wanna give it
Why you wanna givin it all away
Cuz you're givin it all givin it all away yeah yeah
Cuz You're givin it all away hey, hey, hey

Hey, paved paradise, to put up a parking lot
la,la, la, la, la, la, la ,la ,la ,la ,la
Paved paradise, and put up a parking lot

The Beatles - Can't Buy Me Love

Mi Comentario:
En estos tiempos donde "el tener" vale más que "el ser" no tenemos que olvidarnos que lo más importante es "el querer", ese verbo no mira posesiones ni posiciones! No puede ni podrá nunca comprarse.
Sigue sin existir un grupo de rock tan único como los Cuatro Grandes de Liverpool!




Lyrics
Can't buy me love, love
Can't buy me love

I'll buy you a diamond ring my friend if it makes you feel alright
I'll get you anything my friend if it makes you feel alright
'Cause I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

I'll give you all I got to give if you say you love me too
I may not have a lot to give but what I got I'll give to you
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love

Can't buy me love, everybody tells me so
Can't buy me love, no no no, no

Say you don't need no diamond ring and I'll be satisfied
Tell me that you want the kind of thing that money just can't buy
I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love
