"Sin música, la vida sería un error". (Friedrich Nietzsche).

Canciones para empezar bien la semana: “Roscoe”, de Midlake

Reincorporarse a la rutina cada lunes no es fácil. Por eso, a partir de hoy os propongo comenzar cada semana con una canción especial. No es día para reflexiones sesudas.

En el fondo, esta es la primera excusa que se me ha ocurrido para compartir con vosotros una canción que me tiene absolutamente obsesionado, a pesar de que ya han pasado más de cuatro años desde su publicación. Roscoe es el tema que abre The Trials of Van Occupanter, el segundo disco de la banda de Denton (Texas) Midlake. Simplemente delicioso.

Stonecutters made them from stones
Chosen specially for you and I
Who will live inside
The mountaineers gathered tender
Piled high
In which to take along.
Driving many miles, knowing they’d get here.

When they got here, all exhausted
On the roof leaks they got started
And now when the rain comes
We can be thankful

Ooh aah ooh
When the mountaineers
Saw that everything fit, they were
Glad and so they took off

Thought we were devoid
A change or two
Around this place
When they get back they’re all mixed up with no one to stay with

The village used to be all one really needs
That’s filled with hundreds and hundreds of
Chemicals that mostly surround you
You wish to flee but it’s not like you
So listen to me, listen to me

Oh, oh, oh and when the morning comes,
We will step outside
We will not find another man inside
We like the newness, the newness of all
That has grown in our garden soaking for so long

Whenever I was a child I wondered what if my name had changed into something more productive like Roscoe
Been born in 1891
Waiting with my Aunt Rosaline

Thought we were devoid
A change or two
Around this place
When they get back they’re all mixed up with no one to stay with

1891
They looked around the forest
They made their house from cedars
They made their house from stones

Oh, they’re a little like you, and
They’re a little like me
When they’re falling me

Thought we were devoid
A change or two
Around this place
(This place)
(This place)

When they get back they’re all mixed up with no one to stay with

    Tienes razón, es una canción maravillosa, redonda. Y es verdad que tiene esa cualidad de agarrársete durante días y días.

    En directo, sin embargo, me decepcionaron un poco.

    Gracias. Así da gusto empezar el día, sí señor.
