Sâmbăta şi muzica ei…


Ne vom aminti azi (cei ce au amintiri muzicale atât de vechi) de o trupă care a făcut furori la vremea ei, dar despre care se vorbeşte prea puţin astăzi: AMERICA. Ştiu, sunt şi astăzi trupe şi interpreţi care fac furori şi despre care mâine nu se va mai auzi mare lucru, dar trupa aceasta chiar „a spus” ceva în muzică şi în evoluţia ei.

În anii ’70 folk-rock-ul era „la mare trecere”. Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell and Dan Peek (decedat în iulie, 2011) formează în 1972 trupa AMERICA. Crescuţi şi educaţi în Anglia (unde altundeva se putea lua „microbul” muzicii de calitate al acelei perioade?), cei trei adoptă un stil foarte apropiat celor de la Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (şi al altora…)

Cel care îi remarcă şi îi lansează în „lumea mare” a muzicii nu este altul decât George Martin, omul care a înţeles foarte bine ce însemna „fenomenul” Beatles… Asta spune multe.

Dar… se pot afla mult mai multe pe internet despre această trupă. Aici vreau doar să ne delectăm cu câteva dintre succesele lor.

P.S. Am fost întrebat de ce „dezgrop morţii” muzicali şi îi promovez în fiecare sâmbătă. Răspunsul e simplu: într-o lume care îşi uită valorile trecutului nu e de mirare că apar atâtea non-valori. E bine să nu uităm nişte repere, ca să nu… ne rătăcim în „muzica” de azi! În plus… am şi eu nostalgiile mele 😉

Sister golden hair

Well I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on Monday and I got myself undressed
I ain’t ready for the altar but I do agree there’s times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ‘bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can’t live without you; can’t you see it in my eyes?
I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it
Well, I keep on thinkin’ ‘bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can’t live without you; can’t you see it in my eyes?
Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Doo wop doo wop …

Horse with no name  – am ales varianta aceasta pentru ineditul şi nostalgia imaginilor…

On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

After nine days I let the horse run free
‘Cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it’s life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

Ventura Highway

Chewing on a piece of grass
Walking down the road
Tell me, how long you gonna stay here, Joe?
Some people say this town don’t look good in snow
You don’t care, I know

Ventura Highway in the sunshine
Where the days are longer
The nights are stronger than moonshine
You’re gonna go I know

‘Cause the free wind is blowin’ through your hair
And the days surround your daylight there
Seasons crying no despair
Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

Did di di di dit …

Wishin’ on a falling star
Waitin’ for the early train
Sorry boy, but I’ve been hit by purple rain
Aw, come on, Joe, you can always
Change your name
Thanks a lot, son, just the same

Ventura Highway in the sunshine
Where the days are longer
The nights are stronger than moonshine
You’re gonna go I know

‘Cause the free wind is blowin’ through your hair
And the days surround your daylight there
Seasons crying no despair
Alligator lizards in the air, in the air

Did di di di dit …

Tin Man  – piesa mea favorită

Sometimes late when things are real and people
share the gift of gab between themselves
Some are quick to take the bait and
catch the perfect prize that waits among the shelves

But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn’t, didn’t already have
And Cause never was the reason for the evening
Or the tropic of Sir Galahad
So please believe in me

When I say I’m spinning round, round, round, round
Smoke glass stain bright color
Image going down, down, down, down
Soapsuds green like bubbles

Oh, Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn’t, didn’t already have
And Cause never was the reason for the evening
Or the tropic of Sir Galahad

So please believe in me
When I say I’m spinning round, round, round, round
Smoke glass stain bright color
Image going down, down, down, down
Soapsuds green like bubbles

No, Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn’t, didn’t already have
And Cause never was the reason for the evening
Or the tropic of Sir Galahad
So please believe in me…

All my life

All my life, without a doubt I give you
All my life, now and forever till the
Day I die, you and I will share

All the things this changing world can offer
So I sing, I’d be happy just to
Stay this way, spend each day, with you

There was a time, that I just thought
That I would lose my mind
You came along and then the sun did shine
We started on our way
I do recall that every moment spent
Was wasted time but then I chose to lay it on the line

I put the past away
I put the past away
I put the past away

All my life, I will carry you through
All my life, between each hour of the passing days
I will stay with you

There was a time, that I just thought
That I would lose my mind
You came along and then the sun did shine
We started on our way
I do recall that every moment spent
Was wasted time then I chose to lay it on the line

I want this all my life
I want this all my life
I want this all my life
I want this all my life
I want this all my life
I wanted this all my life

Lonely people – piesa mea favorită

This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by
Don’t give up until you drink from the silver cup
And ride that highway in the sky

This is for all the single people
Thinking that love has left them dry
Don’t give up until you drink from the silver cup
You never know until you try

Well, I’m on my way
Yes, I’m back to stay
Well, I’m on my way back home

This is for all the lonely people
Thinking that life has passed them by
Don’t give up until you drink from the silver cup
And never take you down or never give you up
You never know until you try

  1. emanuel zice:

    …Doamne, cum ii mai ascultam in timpul alergarilor lungi si foarte lungi!!! muzica lor e un fel de calatorie sau pur si simplu e o muzica calatorinda. in timp ce reascult piesele lor fac putin shadow boxing pentru dezmortire iar ritmurile lor imi pun singele si sufletul in miscare…you never know until will try.
