Scritti Politti . Perfect Way

Con lo que detesto los 80 (bueno, lo que identifica a los 80) siempre hay veces que vuelves hacia atrás y te sale una sonrisa (o una carcajada).
Hoy me acordé de Scritti Politti, que en su momento tuvo una buena repercusión como sinónimo de calidad y buen hacer (visto hoy en día, parecen salidos de una peli de Eddie Murphy en plan Beverly Hills Cop xD!)
Lo cierto es que las percusiones les hacen mucho daño.
Y para muestra, un botón: Perfect Way (Cupid and Psyche 85, 1985) (de la que llegó a hacer una versión Miles Davis: ¡vivir para ver!


Perfect Way - Scritti Politti

Y una versión de Davis en directo en Tokyo (1987)



Por último, la letra:

I took a backseat a backhander I took her back to her room
I better get back to the basics for you
You gotta conscience compassion you got away with the word
You gotta heart full of complacency too
I don't have a purpose omission I'm empty by definition
I got a lack girl that you'd love to be
You wanna diva a deduction you wanna do what they do
Wanna do damage that you can undo
Apart from everyone away from your love
A part of me belongs apart from all the hurt above
I got a perfect way to make a new proposition
I got a perfect way to make a justification
I got a perfect way to make a certain a maybe
I got a perfect way to make the girls go crazy
I took a day job amendment I took a liking to you
I took a page out of my rulebook for you
You wanna message a confession you wanna martyr me too
You wanna margin of error for two
Maybe tomorrow the next letter or when the weather gets better
I've got to wait here for your moon to turn blue
I made an offer an exception I made a sense out of you
You took a good look at your book but I knew
In times of tenderness in terms baby so true
Until such time as I can understand all the things you do
Want to forgive you for all the things that you do
Wanna forget how to remember with you
Maybe tomorrow the next letter or when the weather gets better
I've got to wait here for your moon to turn blue
This is a perfect way to make a new proposition
This is a perfect way to make a justification
This is a perfect way to make a certain a maybe
This is a perfect way to make the girls go crazy
