...Hang on to the good days...

...hay un grupo frances al que ultimamente le he agarrado bien el gusto.. antes era nadamas un grupo mas con algunas canciones agradables en mi reproductor.. pero ya que uno pone en realidad atencion estan en otro nivel... primero porke almenos a mi parecer sí tienen una propuesta un poco diferente.. almenos en medio de tantos grupos taaan parecidos que hay ultimamente.. y muchos de los grupos prediseñados que han salido ultimamente.. y que la verdad es que se vuelven totalmente desechables despues del primer disco.. pero pues la verdad es sencillo identificar esas bandas al final de cuentas... y la verdad es que antes veia a esta banda dentro de esa encapsulacion... y me alegro de encontrar que estaba muy equivocado... primero porque la musica de cierta manera si tiene algo distinto... no se.. un toque bastante libre... tocan de una manera tal vez no tan sublime y espectacular... no encuentra uno grandes solos ni cosas asi.. simplemente se ponen a tocar juntos a generar una atmsofera agradable casi bailable... unas letras que si no son demasiado profundas o a las que le encuentres millones de niveles de entendimiento... son buenas y con una gran manera de decir y describir las cosas y situaciones... en fin.. hacen las cosas de una manera sencilla.. pero sublime... musica totalmente perfecta para disfrutar mientras trabajas, estudias, etc... o para echar reven y ponerse a brincar y cantar y bailar en algun reven... bien podria ser el disco que pone uno el miercoles a media semana con bastante chamba encima para alivianar la tarde... o el disco que pones en el precopeo del viernes antes de salir de reven...

...y las rolas ... las rolas hablan por si solas... y pues siempre termina uno reflejandose en varias lineas... quien sabe muchas veces es la manera de conectarse con un grupo o artista... porque siente uno que andan en canales parecidos.. o simplemente es una guajirada lo que acabo de decir.. y pues la letra y musica esta ahi.. y es la interpetacion de lo que escuchamos con lo que nos identificamos siendo esta interpretacion totalmente distinta a la de alguien mas.. o incluso a la de la banda misma...o una vez mas estoy totalmente ekivocado y es algo mas... pero pues ya es algo que vive en la cabeza de cada kien esa idea....

...aqui un par de rolitas para que entiendan a que me refiero cuando digo Phoenix es una gran banda... se supone que es una banda "Indie" ...no se ke tan cierto sea eso.. ya ke ese titulo ya ha sido demasiado prosituido con la finalidad de decir que cualkier banda esta en onda... y esta a la moda... el caso es que se puede decir que es rock... alternativo... prefiero ese termino para definir un sonido que sabemos que es rock.. pero no sabemos en que parte encasillarla.. jajaja.. por eso es "alternativo"... aun asi... el termino es demasiado amplio por lo mismo.. y por eso no me gusta en casillar un sonido con una etiketa.. mas ke esa.. "alternativa"... o lo ke podria decirse.. diferente.. pero pues el post no es acerca de la seccion en la que deberia estar el grupo en una tienda de discos..

...el caso es que Phoenix lo veo mas como algo diferente... con claras influencias de Air.. otra banda francesa del cambio de milenio.,.. la cual a llegado incluso mas lejos... o almenos ha encontrado mayor fama... y con letras mas bien sencillas y directas... de situaciones por las ke a veces llega uno a pasar.. o por la ke uno se llega a encontrar.. o tal vez no.. tal vez solo es porke yo ando por esos caminos y por eso las encuentro tan claras... aunke en realidad este totalmente equivocado... aunke al final... eso es lo bonito de la musica.. y el arte en general.. cada quien le encuentra algo diferente e incluso llega a crear una relacion con la obra... o no?

el chiste es ke esta cancion lo dice todo....

Phoenix - If I Ever Feel Better

They say an end can be a start
Feels like I've been buried yet I'm still alive
It's like a bad day that never ends
I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don't try to deny
I'd better learn to accept that
There are things in my life that I can't control

They say love ain't nothing but a sore
I don't even know what love is
Too many tears have had to fall
Don't you know I'm so tired of it all
I have known terror dizzy spells
Finding out the secrets words won't tell
Whatever it is it can't be named
There's a part of my world that's fading away

You know I don't want to be clever
To be brilliant or superior
True like ice, true like fire
Now I know that a breeze can blow me away
Now I know there's much more dignity
In defeat than in the brightest victory
I'm losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please...

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

Hang on to the good days
I can lean on my friends
They help me going through hard times
But I'm feeding the enemy
I'm in league with the foe
Blame me for what's happening
I can't try, I can't try, I can't try...

No one knows the hard times I went through
If happiness came I miss the call
The stormy days ain't over
I've tried and lost know I think that I pay the cost
Now I've watched all my castles fall
They were made of dust, after all
Someday all this mess will make me laugh
I can't wait, I can't wait, I can't wait...

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

It's like somebody took my place
I ain't even playing my own game
The rules have changed well I didn't know
There are things in my life I can't control
I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don't try to deny
I'd better learn to accept that
There's a part of my life that will go away

Dark is the night, cold is the ground
In the circular solitude of my heart
As one who strives a hill to climb
I am sure I'll come through I don't know how
They say an end can be a start
Feels like I've been buried yet I'm still alive

I'm losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please...

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it's all over I'll let you know

esta va por una llamada (de larga distancia) que si me aliviano bastante algunas malacopeces...

Phoenix - Long Distance Call

Where to go I had no idea
26. 10 Was the price to pay
A messed up kid with no ideals at all
I thought those 26. 10 I shouldn't give'em away

I remember this young guy died and I took his part
He got far too many stitches on his pretty face
Long time to see but I always thought us two would be serious
I was looking around town, thinking the same as you

I'm far gone but your long distance call
And your capital letters keep me asking for more

It's never been like that
It's never been like that

I'm far gone but your long distance call
And your capital letters keep me asking for more

Where to go I had no idea about it
Most of the people do, there're only doing just fine
I don't wanna stay in place no more, see
Ain't doing well well well, I am only doing just fine

Long time no see, long time no say
Got little to tell, I don't say much but I might
Something always told me us two would be serious
I am looking around town, thinking the same as you

I'm far gone but your long distance call
And your capital letters keep me asking for more

It's never been like that
It's never been like that

I'm far gone but your long distance call
And your capital letters keep me asking for more

Long time no see... Long time no say...

...y otra mas.. porke sigo escuchandolos y viendo como me narran algunos momentos en mi cabeza...

Phoenix - Everything is Everything

Things are gonna change
But not for better
Don't know what it means to me
But it's hopeless, hopeless
Gotta get you home
To be with anyone
I think of what I've done
You know it all

Everything is everything
The more I talk about it
The less I do control
Everything means everything
Can't understand a word
Half of the stuff we're saying

The things I do possess
Sometimes they own me too
Whatta they gone a do to me
If it's hopeless hopeless?
What I can't explain
I'm sure you get it well
And since I always wanted
I've wanted you

Everything is everything
The more I talk about it
The less I do control
Everything means everything
Can't understand a word
Half of the stuff we're saying

Ridin' low, ridin' low
Ridin' faster
This is what I want
Look at what it did to me
Ridin' low, ridin' low
Ridin' faster
This is what you want
This is what you get instead

Ridin' low, ridin' low
Ridin' faster
This is what you want?
I've always wanted you

Everything is everything
The more I talk about it
The less I do control
Everything means everything
Can't understand a word
Half of the stuff we're saying

Ridin' low, ridin' low
Ridin' faster
The more I talk about it
The less I do control
Ridin' low, ridin' low
Ridin' faster
Can't understand a word
Half of the stuff we're saying
Ridin' low, ridin' low
Ridin' faster
The more I talk about it
The less I do control
Ridin' low, ridin' low
Ridin' faster
Can't understand a word
Half of the stuff we're saying
