Spill The Wine (Derrama el vino) – Eric Burdon and War

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on noviembre 26, 2009 by abel63

Que recuerdos tan hermosos me vienen a la memoria cuando escucho esta canción, en Guatemala se escuchó muchisimo, esta es la única canción que he escuchado a Eric Burdon acompañado del grupo War.


Spill The Wine
Eric Burdon and War

1970

I was once out strolling
One very hot summer's day
When I thought I'd lay
Myself down to rest
In a big field of tall grass
I lay there in the sun and
Felt it caressing my face

As I fell asleep and dreamed
I dreamed I was in a Hollywood movie
And that I was the star of the movie

This really blew my mind
The fact that me, an overfed
Long-haired leaping gnome should
Be the star of a Hollywood movie

But there I was
I was taken to a place
The hall of the mountain king
I stood high upon a mountaintop

Naked to the world
In front of every kind of girl
There was long ones, tall ones
Short ones, brown ones
Black ones, round ones
Big ones, crazy ones

Out of the middle came a lady
She whispered in my ear
Something crazy
She said

(CHORUS)
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl
Spill the wine and take that pearl

I could feel hot flames
Of fire roaring at my back
As she disappeared
But soon she returned

In her hand was a bottle of wine
In the other, a glass
She poured some of the wine
From the bottle into the glass
And raised it to her lips and
Just before she drank it, she said

(CHORUS)

Take that pearl, yeah
It's all yours
You gotta do it
Spill that wine
Spill that wine

Spill the wine, spill the wine
Spill the wine, spill the wine
Take that pearl

San Franciscan Nights (Noches de San Francisco) – Eric Burdon And The Animals

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on noviembre 26, 2009 by abel63

Otra excelente canción de Eric Burdon y los Animales.


San Franciscan Nights
Eric Burdon & The Animals

1967

[SPOKEN]
This following program
Is dedicated to the city
And people of San Francisco
Who may not know it
But they are beautiful
And so is their city
This is a very personal song
So if the viewer cannot understand it
Particularly those of you
Who are European residents
Save up all your bread
And fly Translove Airways
To San Francisco, USA
Then maybe you'll understand the song
It will be worth it
If not for the sake of this song
But for the sake of
Your own peace of mind.
.
Strobe lights beam creates dreams
Walls move, minds do too
On a warm San Franciscan night
Old child, young child feel all right
On a warm San Franciscan night

Angels sing, leather wings
Jeans of blue, Harley Davidsons too
On a warm San Franciscan night
Old angel, young angel feel all right
On a warm San Franciscan night

I wasn't born there
Perhaps I'll die there
There's no place left to go
San Francisco

Cop's face is filled with hate
Heavens above, he's on
A street called love
When will they ever learn
Old cop, young cop feel all right
On a warm San Franciscan night

The children are cool
They don't raise fools
It's an American dream
Includes Indians too

Sky Pilot (Piloto del cielo) – Eric Burdon and the animals

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on noviembre 26, 2009 by abel63

 
Esta canción de Eric Burdon y los animales me gusta mucho y también me trae grandes recuerdos. Este es uno de los discos favoritos de mi amigazo Juan Alberto Reyes y también de mi hermano Marco Tulio.

La canción es un tanto larga y por eso el disco 45 tenía la canción en la cara "A" y continuaba en la cara "B".
Esta canción salió en la segunda epoca del grupo de Los Animales.


Sky Pilot
Eric Burdon & The Animals

1968

He blesses the boys
As they stand in line
The smell of gun grease
And their bayonets, they shine
He's here to help them
All that he can
To make them feel wanted
He's a good holy man

[CHORUS]
Sky pilot, sky pilot
How high can you fly
You'll never, never
Never reach the sky

He smiles at the young soldiers
Tells them it's all right
He knows of their fear
In the forthcoming fight
Soon there'll be blood
And many will die
Mother and fathers
Back home, they will cry

[repeat CHORUS]

He mumbles a prayer
And it ends with a smile
The order is given
They move down the line
But he'll stay behind
And he'll meditate
But it won't stop the bleeding
Or ease the hate

As the young men
Move out into the battle zone
He feels good
With God you're never alone
He feels so tired
And he lays on his bed
Hopes the men will find courage
In the words that he's said

[repeat CHORUS]

You're soldiers of god
You must understand
The fate of your country
Is in your young hands
May god give you strength
Do your job real well
If it all was worth it
Only time it will tell

In the morning, they returned
With tears in their eyes
The stench of death
Drifts up to the skies
A young soldier so ill
Looks at the sky pilot
Remembers the words
Thou shalt not kill

[repeat CHORUS 2x]

You'll never, never
Never reach the sky
You'll never, never
Never reach the sky
You'll never, never
Never reach the sky

Cuando estemos juntos / Detente – Tatiana y Johnny Lozada

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

Allá por el lejano año de 1985, estas canciones  fueron lanzadas como parte de una campaña para concientizar a los jovenes. A mi me gustaron mucho las dos canciones y ahora 24 años despues las recuerdo con mucha nostalgia.

Tu Nombre / Jornada Sentimental – César Costa

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

Estas dos canciones me gustan mucho.

La canción Jornada Sentimental la escuché por primera vez en una pelicula en la cual César Costa interpretaba a un cantante que cantaba con mascara, por cierto también salía Chespirito (bastante joven por cierto).

El Salvaje / Muñeca de cera – César Costa

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

César Costa es de los artistas que se ha mantenido a través de los años, quizás ya no en la misma forma que tuvo en los años 60's y 70's pero todavía lo vemos de cuando en cuando por los canales de televisión.

En su mayoría las canciones que interpreto fueron covers, sin embargo muchas de ellas me han gustado más que la original, personalmente pienso que César Costa no tuvo una gran voz pero tenía carisma y era bastante educado al presentarse en público.

El Salvaje no se quién la canta en otro idioma pero la canción Muñeca de cera es originalmente cantada en francés. Karina también sacó su versión pero me gusta más con César Costa.

Something (Algo)/ Come Together (Vengan Juntos) – The Beatles

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on noviembre 13, 2009 by abel63

Este disco de 45 R.P.M. realmente es excelente, no se puede decidir cual es el lado "A" y cual es el lado "B", las dos canciones son excelentes.

Escuchando estas canciones me transporta a los días cuando mi recordada "Voz Del Hogar" transmitía el programa "Beatles por siempre". Yo mismo me sorprendo al pensar en la tremenda influencia que en mi vida tuvo esa emisora de radio y eso que unicamente transmitía en  A.M.
