SILVIO RODRIGUEZ

UNICORNIO



Mi unicornio azul ayer se me perdió,
pastando lo deje y desapareció.
Cualquier información bien la voy a pagar.
Las flores que dejó
no me han querido hablar.

Mi unicornio azul
ayer se me perdió,
no sé si se me fue,
no sé si extravió,
y yo no tengo más
que un unicornio azul.
Si alguien sabe de él,
le ruego información,
cien mil o un millón
yo pagaré.
Mi unicornio azul
se me ha perdido ayer,
se fue.

Mi unicornio y yo
hicimos amistad,
un poco con amor,
un poco con verdad.
Con su cuerno de añil
pescaba una canción,
saberla compartir
era su vocación.

Mi unicornio azul
ayer se me perdió,
y puede parecer
acaso una obsesión,
pero no tengo más
que un unicornio azul
y aunque tuviera dos
yo solo quiero aquel.
Cualquier información
la pagaré.
Mi unicornio azul
se me ha perdido ayer,
se fue.

STUART STAPLES

O vocalista dos Tindersticks, voltou em 2006 com o seu segundo álbum a solo, Leaving Songs, após a relativa desilusão do primeiro, Luck Dog Records 03-04.
Mas este Leaving Songs é um álbum bem diferente, com grandes temas, e no qual podemos ouvi-lo nesta composição - That Leaving Feeling, em excelente dueto com a linda voz de Lhasa de Sela, que já participara em trabalhos anteriores dos Tindersticks.

"THAT LEAVING FEELING" - Stuart Staples e Llasa de Sela






I get that leaving feeling
this time it's here to stay
I've been weighing up the pulling
and pushing me away.
the past is so heavy
but it's something I can't leave
and this future is so certain
it just pushes me to my knees.

Lhasa:
Is that your heart talking
or just that befuddled mind?
the people that you love
they change when you leave them behind.

stuart staples:
But this rope that is pulling
is whittled down to a thread
and if I don't start climbing
pretty soon it'll be over my head

Lhasa:
we all have dreams of leaving
we all want to make a new start,
go and pack a little suitcase
with the pieces of our hearts.
all those worries and those sorrows
we can just toss them away,
buy a coffee and a paper
and those step on to a train.

Stuart Staples:
But I've been too long wandering
limping around this town
with everything that's pulling me
is pulling me further down.

Lhasa:
Go make all your excuses,
go say all you goodbyes
but take a look in the mirror
it's the hardest one you'll ever find.
all those worries and those sorrows
you can just toss them away.
go find a new tomorrow
and forget about your yesterdays.
so go and pat your kids
and kiss your dog goodbye,
leave your keys on the nail
with the sadness that's in your eyes.

Stuart Staples:
Maybe tomorrow, today looks like it's bringing rain
and I'll leave everything in order
I don't want nothing standing in my way
there are jobs that need tending
and the logs that are waiting to stack
and I'll leave everything in order
I don't want nothing that's going to hold me back .

TOM WAITS

TOM WAITS by Boatwright


HOLD ON






They hung a sign up in out town
if you live it up, you wont
Live it down
So, she left monte rio, son
Just like a bullet leaves a gun
With charcoal eyes and monroe hips
She went and took that california trip
Well, the moon was gold, her
Hair like wind
She said dont look back just
Come on jim
(chorus)
Oh you got to
Hold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here
You gotta hold on

Well, he gave her a dimestore watch
And a ring made from a spoon
Everyone is looking for someone to blame
But you share my bed, you share my name
Well, go ahead and call the cops
You dont meet nice girls in coffee shops
She said baby, I still love you
Sometimes theres nothin left to do

Oh you got to
Hold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here, you got to
Just hold on.

Well, God bless your crooked little heart st. louis got the best of me
I miss your broken-china voice
How I wish you were still here with me

Well, you build it up, you wreck it down
You burn your mansion to the ground
When theres nothing left to keep you here, when
Youre falling behind in this
Big blue world

Oh you go to
Hold on, hold on
You got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here
You got to hold on

Down by the riverside motel,
Its 10 below and falling
By a 99 cent store she closed her eyes
And started swaying
But its so hard to dance that way
When its cold and theres no music
Well your old hometown is so far away
But, inside your head theres a record
Thats playing, a song called

Hold on, hold on
You really got to hold on
Take my hand, Im standing right here
And just hold on.

SIDNEY BECHET


LA NUIT EST UNE SORCIÈRE - 1953

Ao som da agulha de um velho gira-discos, deixo este vídeo de uma música composta por este extraordinário músico para o ballet intitulado "La nuit est une sorciere", estreado em Paris em 1953.
Dele se fez um LP igualmente, com Jacques Bazire conduzindo a Orchestre Symphonique.
Neste clip podemos apreciar um pequeno excerto do ballet com o inconfundível som do saxofone soprano de Bechet.
