Paolo Giordano + Mayte Martín

Després de molts dies a la llista d’espera de la biblioteca, em va tocar. Quan vaig llegir els dos primers capítols que introdueixen els dos personatges de “La solitud dels nombres primers”, vaig saber que tenia entre les mans una història de les que fan mal, que et remouen per dins i que t’acompanyen per sempre. El Mattia i l’Alice em van transportar a èpoques difícils i a situacions doloroses de la meva vida i de la de persones que conec. Vaig tornar a l’escola, a l’institut, als vestidors de la classe d’educació física i a molts dies tristos i carrerons sense sortida. En Paolo Giordano reobre les cicatrius que tots hem anat acumulant amb el pas del temps. L’únic consol, potser, saber que no estem tan sols en la nostra solitud.   

I no entenc gaire per què, però la banda sonora que m’ha acompanyat durant aquesta lectura ha estat la cançó “Por la mar chica del puerto” de la Mayte Martín del disc “AlcantaraManuel”.

adéu vacances amb “girls just want to have fun”

S’ha acabat… demà em toca matinar una altra vegada. Però no passa res, when the working day is done encara hi ha temps per some  fun i més amb aquesta versió tan preciosa de Russian Red. Qui no es conforma, és per que no vol…

Girls just want to have fun (Russian Red – versió original de Cindy Lauper)

I come home in the morning light
My mother says when you gonna live your life right
Oh mother dear we’re not the fortunate ones
And girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

The phone rings in the middle of the night
My father yells what you gonna do with your life
Oh daddy dear you know you’re still number one
But girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have –

That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls – they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun

Some boys take a beautiful girl
And hide her away from the rest of the world
I want to be the one to walk in the sun
Oh girls they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have

That’s all they really want
Some fun
When the working day is done
Girls – they want to have fun
Oh girls just want to have fun,
They want to have fun,
They want to have fun….

The Wave Pictures – I Love You Like a Madman

M’agrada la lletra, la música, la veu del cantant i el vídeo. Què més es pot demanar!

I Love You Like a Madman

If I made it through Christmas without smoking
‘Til your parents went to bed
If you made it through too
Without sticking your nail scissors in my neck
I’ll buy you bras instead of pickled eggs
Chocolate instead of chutney
Good red wine instead of bad red wine
Next time I remember your birthday

I ate peaches straight from the can
The juice ran down my tongue
Over my lip
Slipped down my chin
Dripped onto your parents’ carpet

The air in here is dead
But we’re not finished yet
Throw the back door open
Let me see your breath

I love you like a madman
I miss you all the time
I wait for the morning
I will wait all night

I mixed rum and coke and lemonade
Asked for my presents in the kitchen
Alone again at 3am
I listened to them
With sugar round the rim and ash around the edges
Of the tiles and the tables
You didn’t sit up waiting
But somehow slept sober
