Fischer Z . So Long

Más de uno pensará que para detestar como detesto los 80 (en realidad no sólo la música, sino también el cine, la moda, la televisión,...) en Emerald Lies no hago más que poner coplas de la época. Bien, esto tiene su explicación: es una especie de catarsis, de mostrar que aquello que se recuerda con agrado no tiene porque ser bueno tal y como cuentan los enamorados de esa etapa. Otras veces reconozco que lo que quiero es hacer sangre. Reirse es bueno, de todo y de todos (empezando por uno mismo) y, lo cierto es que muchas de esas bandas eran bastante de risa.

¿Y hoy qué? Pues hoy Fischer Z, la bando de John Watts, formada a finales de los 70 con un clásico de la época: "So Long" (1980). No es de lo peor, puede resultar incluso pegadizo, pero termina siendo cansino.

Ahí va el clip:



Y, a continuación, la letra:

When I read your letter I couldn't believe that you'd gone.
I dialed your number but no one answered the phone.
I asked your friends to tell me if they knew where you were,
they said they thought you were ill.
I hired a detective to try and find out where you are.
He managed to trace you, I know that you are living in France.
A watchman saw you climb into someone else car and drive off
laughing in the night. Why didn't you tell me? Not leave me this way.
You should have warned me and not waited for so long.

I've tried to forget you but I find myself walking on the street.
I went to the doctor and he gave me something to sleep. I've sent
you telgrams but you haven't answered one. Your mother told me
I best leave you well alone. I hope you're satisfied now you've done
this to me. I hope you're pleased with what you've done.
Why didn't you tell me? Not leave me this way. Oh you could have told
me and not waited for so long.

For so long I never realized just exactly who you are. I never
realized just exactly. I never realized the girl I had before.
I hope you're satisfied now you've done this to me. I hope
you're pleased with what you've done. Why didn't you tell me?
Not leave me this way. Oh you should have told me and not
waited for so long.

Muzak: yo tambien bastante, (bueno un poco) los ochenta, ojalá pudiera repuperar aquellos años perdidos entre tanto tabaco y copas, metido en aquellos tuburios noscturnos, y desperdiciando las soleadas mañanas de domingo. pero tengo que reconocer que este tema " So long" es uno de los que me alegraron la existencia por aquel entonces. si quieres, estamos en contacto con los blogs. Vale?. un saludo.
