Born To Be Wild



Blue Öyster Cult, 1975




Get your motor runnin'
head out on the highway
lookin' for adventure
and whatever comes our way
yeah darlin' go make it happen
take the world in a love embrace
fire all of your guns at once
and explode into space
I like smoke and lightning
heavy metal thunder
racin' with the wind
and the feelin' that i'm under
yeah darlin' go make it happen
take the world in a love embrace
fire all of your guns at once
and explode into space
Like a true nature's child
we were born, born to be wild
we can climb so high
i never wanna die
Born to be wild
born to be wild

'Kicks' - Paul Revere & The Raiders


Girl, you thought you found the answer on that magic carpet ride last night
But when you wake up in the mornin' the world still gets you uptight
Well, there's nothin' that you ain't tried
To fill the emptiness inside
But when you come back down, girl
Still ain't feelin' right

Chorus:
(And don't it seem like)
Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
Before you find out it's too late, girl
You better get straight

No, but not with kicks
You just need help, girl

Well you think you're gonna find yourself a little piece of paradise
But it ain't happened yet, so girl, you better think twice
Don't you see no matter what you do
You'll never run away from you
And if you keep on runnin'
You'll have to pay the price

No, you don't need kicks
To help you face the world each day
That road goes nowhere
I'm gonna help you find yourself another way

I Got You Babe



UB40 & Chrissie Hynde, 1985



They say we're young and we don't know
Won't find out until we grow
Well I don't know, maybe that's true
‘Cause you got me and baby I’ve got you

Baby, I got you babe, I got you babe
They say our love won't pay the rent
Before it's earned our money's always spent
I guess that's so, we don't have a lot
But at least I'm sure of all the things we got
Baby, I got you babe, I got you babe
I got flowers in the spring
I got you, you wear my ring
And when I'm sad, you're a clown
And when I get scared you're always around
So let them say your hair's too long
I don't care, with you I can't do wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb
Baby, I got you babe, I got you babe, I got you babe
I got you to hold my hand
I got you to understand
I got you to walk with me
I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss goodnight
I got you to hold me tight
I got you I won't let go
I got you to love me so

'Rock The Night' - Europe


I've gone through changes
I've gone through pain
But there's not enough reason
For me to go insane
I know the feeling,
Just when it grows
I'm in a rage up from my head
Down to my toes
You know it ain't easy
Running out of thrills
You know it ain't easy
When you don't know what do you want
Wo hoo you want to
Rock now, rock the night
'Til early in the morning light
Rock now, rock the night
Ohh Ohh
You'd better believe it's right
Rock now, rock the night
Ohho ohho
I know my limit
Just what it takes
When things ain't good enough
I just pull the brake
Sometimes it's easy
Sometimes so tough but just have one
Thing dear I can't get enough
You know it ain't easy
Running out of thrills
You know it ain't easy
When you don't know what do you want
Wo hoo you want to
Rock now, rock the night
'Til early in the morning light
Rock now, rock the night
Ohh Ohh
You'd better believe it's right
Rock now, rock the night
Wohho ohho
Rock now, rock the night
Rock now, rock the night
Rock now, rock the night
Rock now, rock the night
Rock it..

Rock Around The Clock



TELEX, 1979




One, two, three o'clock, four o'clock, rock,
Five, six, seven o'clock, eight o'clock, rock,
Nine, ten, eleven o'clock, twelve o'clock, rock,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight.

Put your glad rags on and join me, hon,
We'll have some fun when the clock strikes one,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes two, three and four,
If the band slows down we'll yell for more,
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the chimes ring five, six and seven,
We'll be right in seventh heaven.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When it's eight, nine, ten, eleven too,
I'll be goin' strong and so will you.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

When the clock strikes twelve, we'll cool off then,
Start a rockin' round the clock again.
We're gonna rock around the clock tonight,
We're gonna rock, rock, rock, 'til broad daylight.
We're gonna rock, gonna rock, around the clock tonight.

'Hide & Seek' - Imogen Heap


Where are we?
What the hell... is going on?
The dust has only just begun to fall
Crop circles in the carpet
Sinking... feeling

Spin me round again, and rub my eyes
This can't be happening.
When busy streets, amass with people
With stop to hold their heads heavy

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines
All those years
They were here first

Oily marks appear on walls
Where pleasure moments hung before
The takeover... the sweeping insensitivity
Of this still life

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines
(Oh, you won't catch me around here)
Blood and tears (hearts)
They were here first

Mmm whatcha say?
Oh that you only meant well
Well, of course you did.
Mmm whatcha say?
Mmm that its all for the best
Of course it is.
Mmm whatcha say?
Mmm that it's just what we need
You decided this.
Mmm whatcha say?
What did SHE say?

Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
Mid-sweet talk, newspaper word cut outs (paper word cut outs)
Speak no feeling no, I don't believe you (I don't believe you)
You don't care a bit,
You don't care a bit.

"La música se alza completamente sola, separada de todas las demás artes. No expresa una alegría, pena, angustia, horror, deleite o estado de paz determinados, sino estas sensaciones por sí mismas, en abstracto, en su naturaleza esencial, sin accesorios, y por tanto sin sus motivos habituales"


Arthur Schopenhauer(1788 - 1860)

Filósofo alemán

Venus



Bananarama, 1986



A goddess on a mountain top
Was burning like a silver flame,
The summit of beauty and love,
And Venus was her name.

She's got it,
Yeah, baby, she's got it.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Well, I'm your Venus,
I'm your fire at your desire.
Her weapon were her crystal eyes
Making ev'ry man mad;
Black as a dark night she was,
Got what no one else had.
Wow!

'You Protector' - Fleet Foxes


She left a week to roam
Your protector's coming home
Keep your secrets with you
Safe from the outside

You walk along the stream
Your head caught in a waking dream
Your protector's coming home (coming home)

As you lay to die beside me, baby
I'm the one in the shootin' game
Would you wait for me,
the other one,
would you wait for me? (2x)

You run with the devil (2x)

Ooh ooh ooh...

Tell your brother to be good
Tell your sister not to go
Tell your mother not to wait
Tell your father I was good

As you lay to die beside me, baby
I'm the one in the shootin' game
Would you wait for me,
the other one,
would you wait for me?

Eye Of The Tiger



Chiara Mastroianni & Olivier Bernet, 2007



Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance
Now I'm back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds
Still we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

Risin' up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance
Now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive
