De música se vive. Las canciones de este año

Estas son las diez canciones que me acompañaron como sombras este 2020, un año que ya no admite adjetivo posible, plagado de contrastes, pleno en aprendizaje, carente de multitudes y extraño. Hasta que caiga la ficha, la música seguirá sonando. De algún lado hay que agarrarse.

1-Ghosteen Speaks, de Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
I am beside you, I am beside you
I am beside you, I am beside you
Look for me, look for me
I am beside you, look for meI try to forget, to remember that nothing is something Where something is meant to be

2-Deja vu, de Roger Waters

If I had been God
I would have rearranged the veins in the face to make them more resistant to alcohol and less prone to aging
If I had been God
I would have sired many sons and I would not have suffered the Romans to kill even one of them
If I had been God
With my staff and my rod
If I had been given the nod
I believe I could have done a better job

3-So Long Marianne, de Adam Cohen & The Webb Sisters

Won’t you come over to the window, my little darling
I’d like to try to read your palm
You know I used to think I was some kind of gypsy boy
Before I let you take me homeSo long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all againWell you know, I love to live with you
But you make me forget so very much
I forget to pray for the angels
And then the angels forget to pray for usSo long, Marianne, it’s time that we began
To laugh and cry and cry and laugh about it all again

4-A Hard Day’s Night!, por Ella Fitzgerald

It’s been a hard day’s night, and I’ve been working like a dog
It’s been a hard day’s night, I should be sleeping like a log
But when I get home to you I’ll find the things that you do
Will make me feel alrightYou know I work all day to get you money to buy you things
And it’s worth it just to hear you say you’re going to give me everything
So why on earth should I moan, ‘cause when I get you alone
You know I feel ok

5-From Now On, de Supertramp

Monday has come around again
I’m in the same old place
With the same old faces always watching me
Who knows how long I’ll have to stay
Could be a hundred years
Of sweat and tears
At the rate that I get paid

6-Anyone Who Knows What Love Is (Will Understand), de Irma Thomas

You can blame me
Try to shame me
And still I’ll care for youYou can run around
Even put me down
Still I’ll be there for youThe world
May think I’m foolish
They can’t see you
Like I canOh but anyone
Who knows what love is
Will understand

7-Give More Love, de Ringo Starr

Sometimes this world can be a hard place
We wonder where we go from here
So many hurting bad
Lost everything they had
It’s hard to know what we can doGive more love
Give more love
It’s what we know we need more of
From the heart
Let it start
To spread to everyone
Now it’s up to you
There’s something you can do

8-Zooropa & Where The Streets Have No Name – Live in Paris 2015, de U2

And I have no religion
And I don’t know what’s what
And I don’t know the limit
The limit of what we’ve gotDon’t worry baby, it’ll be alright
You got the right shoes
To get you through the night
It’s cold outside, but brightly lit
Skip the subway
Let’s go to the overground
Get your head out of the mud baby
Put flowers in the mud baby

9-Home, de Brian Eno & David Byrne

The dimming of the light makes the picture clearer
It’s just an old photograph, there’s nothing to hide
When the world was just beginningI memorized her face so it’s not forgotten
I hear the wind whistle in, come back anytime
And we’ll mix our lives together
Heaven knows, what keeps mankind alive
Every hand goes searching for its partner in crime
Under chairs and behind tables
Connecting to places we have known

10-Out of Time, de The Rolling Stones

You don’t know what’s going on
You’ve been away for far too long
You can’t come back and think you are still mine
You’re out of touch my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said, baby, baby, baby, you’re out of time
Well, baby, baby, baby, you’re out of time
I said, baby, baby, baby, you’re out of time
You are left out, out of there without a doubt
‘Cause baby, baby, baby, you’re out of time
