« Livin’ on a prayer »

Once upon a time not so long ago
Tommy used to work on the docks, union’s been on strike
He’s down on his luck, it’s tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day working for her man
She brings home her pay, for love, for loveShe says, we’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for love
We’ll give it a shotWoah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayerTommy’s got his six-string in hock
Now he’s holding in what he used to make it talk
So tough, it’s tough
Gina dreams of running away
When she cries in the night, Tommy whispers
Baby, it’s okay, somedayWe’ve got to hold on to what we’ve got
It doesn’t make a difference if we make it or not
We’ve got each other and that’s a lot for love
We’ll give it a shotWoah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Livin’ on a prayerOh, we’ve got to hold on, ready or not
You live for the fight when it’s all that you’ve got
Woah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayerWoah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear
Woah, livin’ on a prayerWoah, we’re half way there
Woah, livin’ on a prayer
Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear

Amy Whinehouse

Quelle ironie !

Cette charmante jeune dame (1983-2011) , toute la vie devant elle …  possiblement mal gérée ?

Elle chante « Back to Black« , une chanson de 2006, plutôt triste, racontant l’ombre dans laquelle se retrouve une maîtresse …

Puis, la chanson entraînante « Rehab » où elle affirme qu’elle n’a pas besoin de centre de désintox .. son papa lui a confirmé … elle n’en n’a pas besoin !!

… et voilà qu’elle rejoint le « groupe des 27 ans », (Jimmy Hendirx, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison…) alors qu’on la retrouve décédée, juillet 2011, d’une overdose d’alcool à 27 ans..  alors qu’elle sortait d’une période de sevrage…

Il se trouve que son papa était son gérant et conseiller ..

 

Back to black  (voir « Rehab » tout de suite après )

 

Paroles

He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I’ll go back to black
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
I go back to us
I love you much
It’s not enough
You love blow, and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
I go back to
I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black

Paroles 
They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, no, no, no
Yes, I been black
But when I come back, you’ll know, know, know
I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
He’s tried to make me go to rehab
I won’t go, go, go
I’d rather be at home with a Ray
I ain’t got seventy days
‘Cause there’s nothing, there’s nothing you can teach me
That I can’t learn from Mr. Hathaway
I didn’t get a lot in class
But I know we don’t come in a shot glass
They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, « no, no, no »
Yes, I been black
But when I come back, you’ll know, know, know
I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
He’s tried to make me go to rehab
I won’t go, go, go
The man said, « why do you think you here?
I said, I got no idea.
I’m gonna, I’m gonna lose my baby
So I always keep a bottle near
He said, I just think you’re depressed
This, me, yeah, baby, and the rest
They tried to make me go to rehab
But I said, no, no, no
Yes, I been black
But when I come back, you’ll know, know, know
I don’t ever want to drink again
I just, oh, I just need a friend
I’m not gonna spend ten weeks
Have everyone think I’m on the mend
And it’s not just my pride
It’s just till these tears have dried
They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, no, no, no
Yes, I been black
But when I come back, you’ll know, know, know
I ain’t got the time
And if my daddy thinks I’m fine
He’s tried to make me go to rehab
I won’t go, go, go

So, what do you do?
Oh yeah, I wait tables too.
No, I haven’t heard your band,
‘Cause you guys are pretty new.

 

But if you dig on vegan food  /   Well come over to my work
I’ll have them cook you  /   Something that you’ll really love.

And I feel whoa ho woo
Ooh ooh ooh …

Whose that guy  /  Just hanging at your pad
He’s looking kinda bummed  /  Yeah, you broke up, thats too bad.
I guess it’s fair if he always pays the rent  /  And he doesn’t get bent  about sleeping on the couch when I’m there.

‘Cause I like you  /  yeah I like you   /  And I’m feeling so bohemian like you
Yeah I like you  /  Yeah I like you
And I feel whoa ho woo!  /    Ooh ooh ooh   …

I’m getting wise and I’m feeling so bohemian like you
It’s you that I want, so please Just a casual, casual easy thing /  Is it?   /  It is for me
And I like you yeah I like you
and I like you I like you I like you …  I like you I  … like you I like you  …  I like you and I feel Whoa ho woo!

Godless

Paroles

Hey I said you’re godless and
It seems like you’re a soulless friend
As spotless as you were back then
I swear that you are godless
Hey I guess you’re lonely when
I gave you all it took so then
A stranger there is ever been
I guess, it’s what you wanted

Of late, it seems lonely I would be
I begged, I plead
But this is all that I have gotten

Hey as for the day my friend
To hope that you could ever bend
I swear you are, I swear you are
I swear, that you are godless

Hey I said you’re godless
Hey and you’re a soulless friend
Hey I said you’re heartless
And I swear, I swear
Godless
Godless
You’re godless


Heroine is so passé

Paroles

  Play the Dandy Warhols Quizon Melody Facts  

 

I never thought you’d be a junkie because heroin is so passe.
But today, If you think that I don’t know about depression and emotional pain,
You’re insane.
And you’re a fool who hasn’t paid attention to a word that I say.
In a way,
I can’t help but feel responsible, I always knew that you were insane.
With your pain.
But I never thought you’d be a junkie because heroin is so passe.
Heroin is so passe.
Heroin is so passe.
So passe. Nowaday,
You never thought you’d get addicted, Just be cooler in an obvious way.
I could say,
Shouldn’t you have got a couple piercings and decided maybe that you were gay.
In a way,
I can’t help but feel responsible, I always knew that you were insane,
With your pain .
But I never thought you’d be a junkie because heroin is so passe.
Heroin is so passe.
Heroin is so passe. Ahh, ahh, ahh. Heroin is so passe.
Heroin is so passe. Heroin is so passe. Ahh, ahh, hey, hey.

The Beatles

J’ai dû entendre ma première chanson des Beatles vers 1972, alors que j’étudiais à l’école secondaire St-Alphonse, à Montréal.  Mon amie Monique tenait de son frère, l’album Rouge compilation des premiers plus grands succès du groupe.

Elle me les faisait jouer au téléphone et je les enregistrais!!

Je les apprenais ensuite par coeur…

Sur l’heure du midi, Monique et moi on chantait à tue-tête les « Can’t buy me love » et « She loves you yeah » sur l’heure du midi dans la grande salle commune…

I am flesh and I am bone
Rise up, ting ting, like glitter and gold
I’ve got fire in my soul
Rise up, ting ting, like glitter
Like glitter and gold
Like glitterDo you walk in the valley of kings?
Do you walk in the shadow of men
Who sold their lives to a dream?
Do you ponder the manner of things
In the dark
The dark, the dark, the darkI am flesh and I am bone
Arise, ting ting, like glitter and gold
I’ve got fire in my soul
Rise up, ting ting, like glitter
Like glitter and gold
Like glitterDo you walk in the meadow of spring?
Do you talk to the animals?
Do you hold their lives from a string?
Do you ponder the manner of things
In the dark
The dark, the dark, the darkI am flesh and I am bone
Arise, ting ting, like glitter and gold
I’ve got fire in my soul
Rise up, ting ting, like glitter
I am flesh and I am bone

Spinning up
Don’t know what you’re asking for
And everybody’s in the front room’s
Tripping out
You left your bottle at the door’Cause everybody’s in the backroom’s
Spinning up
Don’t know what you’re asking for
And everybody’s in the front room’s
Tripping out
You left your bong at the doorI am flesh and I am bone

Sultans of Swing You get a shiver in the dark,
It’s a raining in the park but meantime-
South of the river you stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing Dixie, double four time
You feel alright when you hear the music ring
Well now you step inside but you don’t see too many faces
Coming in out of the rain they hear the jazz go down
Competition in other places
Uh but the horns they blowin’ that sound
Way on downsouth
Way on downsouth
London town
Check out guitar george, he knows-all the chords
Mind he’s strictly rhythm he doesn’t want to make them cry or sing
They said an old guitar is all, he can affordWhen he gets up under the lights to play his thingAnd Harry doesn’t mind, if he doesn’t, make the scene
He’s got a daytime job, he’s doing alright
He can play the honky tonk like anything
Savin’ it up, for Friday night
With the Sultans
We’re the Sultans of Swing
Then a crowd a young boys they’re a foolin’ around in the corner
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
They don’t give a damn about any trumpet playin’ band
It ain’t what they call rock and roll
Then the Sultans
Yeah the Sultans they play creole, creoleAnd then the man he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings
Goodnight, now it’s time to go home
And he makes it fast with one more thingWe are the Sultans

Paroles

All God’s children need traveling shoes
Drive your problems from here
All good people read good books
Now your conscience is clear
I hear you talk girl
Now your conscience is clear

In the morning I wipe my brow
Wipe the miles away
I like to think I can be so willed
And never do what you say
I’ll never hear you
And never do what you say

Look my eyes are just holograms
Look your love has drawn red from my hands
From my hands you know you’ll never be
More than twist in my sobriety
More than twist in my sobriety
More than twist in my sobriety

We just poked a little empty pie
For the fun people had at night
Late at night don’t need hostility
Timid smile and pause to free

I don’t care about their different thoughts
Different thoughts are good for me
Up in arms and chaste and whole
All God’s children took their toll

Look my eyes are just holograms
Look your love has drawn red from my hands
From my hands you know you’ll never be
More than twist in my sobriety
More than twist in my sobriety
More than twist in my sobriety

Cup of tea, take time to think, yea
Time to risk a life, a life, a life
Sweet and handsome
Soft and porky
You pig out ’til you’ve seen the light
Pig out ’til you’ve seen the light

Half the people read the papers
Read them good and well
Pretty people, nervous people
People have got to sell
News you have to sell

Look my eyes are just holograms
Look your love has drawn red from my hands
From my hands you know you’ll never be
More than twist in my sobriety
More than twist in my sobriety

Look my eyes are just holograms
Look your love has drawn red from my hands
From my hands you know you’ll never be
More than twist in my sobriety
More than twist in my sobriety
More than twist in my sobriety
