Golden Years (Años Dorados) – David Bowie

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on marzo 30, 2009 by abel63

A pesar que David Bowie no es de mis cantantes preferidos,  esta canción si me gustaba mucho y me trae muchos recuerdos. Más que todo me trae recuerdos de los programas de "La Radio Progreso", la emisora de Guatemala que transmitía "El Baul de los Recuerdos".


Golden Years
David Bowie

1975

.
Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop
Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop
Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop

Don't let me hear you say
Life's taking you nowhere, angel
Come get up, my baby

Look at that sky, life's begun
Nights are warm
And the days are young
Come get up, my baby

There's my baby, lost that's all
Once I'm begging you
Save her little soul

Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop
Come get up, my baby

Last night they loved you
Opening doors
And pulling some strings, angel
Come get up my, baby

In walked luck
And you looked in time
Never look back
Walk tall, act fine
Come get up, my baby

I'll stick with you, baby
For a thousand years
Nothing's gonna touch you
In these golden years, gold

Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop
Come get up, my baby

Some of these days
And it won't be long
Gonna drive back down
Where you once belonged
In the back of a dream car
Twenty foot long
Don't cry my sweet
Don't break my heart
Doing all right
But you gotta get smart
Wish upon, wish upon
Day upon day, I believe
Oh Lord, I believe all the way
Come get up, my baby

Run for the shadows
Run for the shadows
Run for the shadows
In these golden years

There's my baby, lost that's all
Once I'm begging you
Save her little soul

Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop
Come get up, my baby

Don't let me hear you say
Life's taking you nowhere, angel
Come get up, my baby

Run for the shadows
Run for the shadows
Run for the shadows
In these golden years

I'll stick with you baby
For a thousand years
Nothing's gonna touch you
In these golden years, gold

Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop
Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop
Golden years
Gold, whop whop whop………..

Lovin’ You (Amandote) – Minnie Riperton

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on marzo 29, 2009 by abel63

En su tiempo no aprecié en toda su dimensión la belleza de esta canción, ahora al paso de los años me doy cuenta en su completa plenitud la impresionante voz de Minnie Riperton.  Lamentablemente ella murió muy joven. Tenía apenas 31 años cuando murió en 1979.
La canción Lovin' You apareció en el album "Perfect Angel"


Lovin' You
Minnie Riperton

1974
.
Loving you is easy
Cause you're beautiful
Making love with you
Is all I want to do

Loving you is more than
Just a dream come true
And everything that I do
Is out of loving you

La la la la la…..
Aaaaaaa….

No one else can make me
Feel the colors that you bring
Stay with me while we grow old
And we will live each day
In springtime

Cause loving you has
Made my life so beautiful
And every day of my life
Is filled with loving you

Loving you, I see your soul
Come shining through
And every time that we ooooh
I'm more in love with you

La la la la la…..
Aaaaaaa….

No one else can make me
Feel the colors that you bring
Stay with me while we grow old
And we will live each day
In springtime

Cause loving you is easy
Cause you're beautiful
And every day of my life
Is filled with loving you

Loving you, I see your soul
Come shining through
And every time that we ooooh
I'm more in love with you

La la la la la…..
Aaaaaaa….

Por poquito se me escapaba esta canción, una de mis super favoritas, hubiera sido una pena no incluirla en este blog de mis recuerdos.


Esta canción era el lado "B" del single RCA

All By Myself (Completamente Solo) – Eric Carmen

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on marzo 22, 2009 by abel63

Esta es una de las canciones más deprimentes que he escuchado, a pesar de eso me gusta mucho. Tenía ya mucho tiempo de no escucharla.


All By Myself
Eric Carmen

1975 -1976

.
When I was young
I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Living alone
I think of all
The friends I've known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

(CHORUS)
All by myself, don't wanna be
All by myself anymore
All by myself, don't wanna live
All by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

(CHORUS)

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And making love was just for fun
Those days are gone

(CHORUS) 2X

Still The One (Aún la única) – Orleans

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on marzo 22, 2009 by abel63

Realmente existen una inmensa cantidad de canciones en nuestra memoria que evocan momentos únicos de nuestra vida. La canción "Still The One" es una de esas canciones, para esa época nuestra Guatemala estaba en pleno proceso de recuperación del terremoto de 1976 y estaba entrando en una nueva etapa de la guerra interna que afectó al país durante muchos años.
Las emisoras de radio en su mayoría transmitían por A.M. pero eso no impedía disfrutar de estas canciones.
La canción "Still The One" fue lanzada en el album "Waking and Dreaming", además fue lanzado como disco 45.


Still The One
Orleans

1976

.
We've been together
Since way back when
Sometimes I never want
Yo see you again

But I want you to know
After all these years
You're still the one
I want whispering in my ear

You're still the one
I want to talk to in bed
Still the one that turns my head
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

I looked at your
Face every day
But I never saw it
Til I went away

When winter came
I just wanted to go
(Wanted to go)
Deep in the desert
I longed for the snow

You're still the one
That makes me laugh
Still the one
That's my better half
We're still having fun
Snd you're still the one

You're still the one
That makes me strong
Still the one
I want to take along
We're still having fun
And you're still the one
Yes, you are

Changing
Our love is going gold
Even though we grow old
It grows new

You're still the one
That I love to touch
Still the one and
I can't get enough
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one
Who can scratch my itch
You're still the one
And I wouldn't switch
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You are still the one
That makes me shout
Still the one
That I dream about
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one
You're still the one
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

Jackie Blue (Triste Jackie) – The Ozark Mountain Daredevils

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on marzo 22, 2009 by abel63

Formado en 1971, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils fue un grupo de Southern Rock , originarios de Springfield, Missouri.  Sus canciones son muy buenas, tiene buenos arreglos y las cantaban con mucha elegancia, no se puede decir lo mismo de su forma de vestir.


La canción más famosa que tuvieron se llamó Jackie Blue.  

Esta canción ha sido una de las preferidas de mi amigazo Juan Alberto Reyes Hernandez, allá en mi querida Guatemala.  Recuerdo muy bien como apreciaba su disco.  En La Voz Del Hogar era infaltable.

Ooo, Jackie Blue
Lives her life from inside of her room
Hides a smile when she's wearing a frown
Ooo, Jackie, you're not so down

You like your life in a free form style
You'll take an inch but you'd love a mile
There never seems to be quite enough
Floating around to fill your loving cup

Ooo, Jackie Blue
What's a game, girl, if you never lose
Ask a winner and you'll probably find
Ooo, Jackie, they've lost at sometime

Don't try to tell me that you're
Not aware of what you're doing
And that you don't care
You say it's easy, just a natural thing
Like playing music, but you never sing

Ooo, Jackie Blue
Making wishes that never come true
Going places where you've never been
Ooo, Jackie, you're going again

Ooo, Jackie Blue
Lives a dream that can never come true
Making love is like sifting through sand
Ooo, Jackie, it slipped through your hand

Every day in your indigo eyes
I watch the sun set but I don't see it rise
Your lightning, stars, and your strawberry wine
You take the world but you won't take the time

Ooo, Jackie Blue
Lives her life from inside of her room
Makes you think that her life is a drag
Ooo, Jackie, what fun you have had

Ooo, Jackie, ooo, Jackie
Ooo, Jackie, ooo, Jackie
Hey, hey, hey, hey
