Keaton Henson: Small Hands (IV)

Se é agradável ouvir uma das nossas músicas preferidas num filme, ver um filme praticamente só com um dos nosso músicos preferidos é ainda melhor...

Conor Oberst and Gillian Welch: Lua

Quase 1600 publicações depois, acho que me deixei influenciar, pela primeira vez, numa partilha. Retirado da compilação "Dark was the Night" (2009) lançada com o objectivo de angariar fundos para "Red Hot Organization". Esta fantástica canção, que originalmente fez parte do álbum "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" dos Bright Eyes é um dos meus temas preferidos e um dos mais fortes deste "Dark was the Night"...

Este tema, que finalmente tem vídeo, é sem dúvidas o meu preferido do seu álbum de estreia. O disco integrou o "Onze do ano" de 2014...

Mais dois grandes temas retirados de um momento musical histórico. Ed Askew é tão bom que não devia ser partilhado...

Leonard Cohen: One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong (III)

Um dos meus temas preferidos de sempre, retirado de um dos meus disco preferidos, o imprescindível "Songs of Leonard Cohen". Apetece-me carregar este tema comigo e levá-lo para casa. Toda a letra é fabulosa mas tenho que destacar a minha parte preferida:
I suppose that he froze when the wind took your clothes
and I guess he just never got warm.
But you stand there so nice, in your blizzard of ice,
oh please let me come into the storm.
I lit a thin green candle, to make you jealous of me. 
But the room just filled up with mosquitos, 
they heard that my body was free. 
Then I took the dust of a long sleepless night 
and I put it in your little shoe. 
And then I confess that I tortured the dress 
that you wore for the world to look through. 
I showed my heart to the doctor: he said I just have to quit. 
Then he wrote himself a prescription, 
and your name was mentioned in it! 
Then he locked himself in a library shelf 
with the details of our honeymoon, 
and I hear from the nurse that he's gotten much worse 
and his practice is all in a ruin. 

I heard of a saint who had loved you, 
so I studied all night in his school. 
He taught that the duty of lovers 
is to tarnish the golden rule. 
And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure 
he drowned himself in the pool. 
His body is gone but back here on the lawn 
his spirit continues to drool. 

An Eskimo showed me a movie 
he'd recently taken of you: 
the poor man could hardly stop shivering, 
his lips and his fingers were blue. 
I suppose that he froze when the wind took your clothes 
and I guess he just never got warm. 
But you stand there so nice, in your blizzard of ice, 
oh please let me come into the storm.

Radiohead: Exit Music (for a film) (II)

Wake.. from your sleep
The drying of your tears
Today we escape, we escape

Pack.. and get dressed
Before your father hears us
Before all hell breaks loose

Breathe, keep breathing
Don't lose your nerve
Breathe, keep breathing
I can't do this alone

Sing.. us a song
A song to keep us warm
There's such a chill, such a chill

You can laugh
A spineless laugh
We hope your rules and wisdom choke you
Now we are one in everlasting peace

Josh T. Pearson: Sweetheart I Ain't Your Christ (III)

I ain't your Saviour or your Christ,
or your goddamn sacrifice
And when I said I'd give my life,
I weren't talking suicide
And I'm so tired of tryin' to make it right
for a girl who just won't come to the light
night after night after night after Christ haunted night
And how you bring your gifts to me,
tied up and bound in their bows of pink,
and gently place them at my feet
like I'm some dying Christmas tree
And fall down to your sexy knees,
gently fold your hands and plead
for me to suck out some disease I can't even begin
to see
You don't need a lover or a friend
You need a God and not a mortal man
Woman you need born again, again
You need a Saviour and i just am not him.
Sweetheart, I ain't your Christ
