„Ca o pasăre pe sîrmă”

Ianuarie 7, 2012

Ar merita inventariate cîteva dintre cele mai reuşite cîntece ale generaţiei „decreţeilor”

Iată un exemplu. Cîntecul lui Leonard Cohen

versiunea lui Johhny Cash

poate că cea mai reuşită versiune, cea a lui Willie Nelson

 

 

 

şi din nou versiunea lui Cohen

 

 

Like a bird on a wire

Like a drunk in a midnight choir

I have tried in my way to be free

Like a fish on a hook

Like a knight from an old fashioned book

I have saved all my ribbons with thee

And if I have been unkind

I hope that you will just let it go by

And if I have been untrue

I hope you know it was never to you

Like a baby stillborn

Like a beast with his horn

I have torn everyone who reached out for me

But I swear by this song

By all I have done wrong I’ll make it all up to you

I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch

He called out to me ” Don’t ask for so much ”

And a young man leaning on his darkened door

He cried out to me ” Hey, why not ask for more ”

Like a bird on a wire Like a drunk in a midnight choir I

have tried ïn my way to be free

  1. Deşi e din 1969, cred că ar merita menţionată „Epitaph” – King Crimson… Dar lista e foarte lungă. Aş fi curios cum ar arăta o listă măcar pe jumătate din ce a fost valoros in perioada aceea cu piese cu adevărat valoroase din anii actuali! 🙂


  2. The wall on which the prophets wrote
    Is cracking at the seams.
    Upon the instruments of death
    The sunlight brightly gleams.
    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams,
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    When silence drowns the screams.

    Confusion will be my epitaph.
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    and laugh.
    But I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying.

    Between the iron gates of fate,
    The seeds of time were sown,
    And watered by the deeds of those
    Who know and who are known;
    Knowledge is a deadly friend
    When no one sets the rules.
    The fate of all mankind I see
    Is in the hands of fools.

    Confusion will be my epitaph.
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    and laugh.
    But I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I’ll be crying.
