LA CANCIÓN

Silba para el coro

El título de este post, al mejor estilo de Universal Stereo, es también el título de una canción, en inglés Whistle for the choir. Últimemente he estado escuchando como loco esta super rola de la inspiración de The Fratellis, la banda de indie rock originaria de Glasgow, Escocia. Estos cuates, que por cierto no son hermanos, han editado un par de discos muy en el estilo de bandas como Arctic Monkeys o The Libertines y son reconocidos haber ganado algunos premios importantes para el gremio musical británico.
Aunque el resto de las canciones de esta banda me parecen "no buenas", Whistle for the choir es una de esas rolas que te atrapan desde el primer momento. Canción sencilla y bella, pero sucia y rasposa en la interpretación; la letra de amor no es la clásica... aquí un tipo totalmente paria le canta a una chica que probablemente es peor que él, eso es amor.
Para saber más de The Fratellis de click aquí, para ver el video en YouTube haga lo mismo aquí. Ahora dele play al reproductor de abajo y siga la letra, no olvide silbar en el coro.



Well it's a big, big city and it's always the same
Can never be too pretty, tell me your name
Is it out of line if I was to be bold and say
Would you be mine?

Because I may be a beggar and you maybe the queen
And though I maybe on a downer I'm still ready to dream
Though it's 3 o'clock, the time is just the time it takes for you
To talk

So if you're lonely why'd you say your not lonely?
Oh you're a silly girl, I know, I heard it so
It's just like you to come and go
And oh me you don't even know me
Your so sweet to try, oh my, you caught my eye
A girl like you's just irresistible

Well it's a big, big city and the lights are all out
But it's much as I can do you know to figure you out
And I must confess, my hearts all broke in pieces
And my head's a mess
And it's 4 in the morning, and I'm walking along
Beside the ghost of every drinker here who has ever done wrong
And it's you, woo hoo
That's got me going crazy for the things you do

So if you're crazy, I don't care you amaze me
but you're a stupid girl, oh me, oh my, you talk
I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry
And only, a girl like you could be lonely
And it's a crying shame, if you would think the same
A boy like me's just irresistible

So if your lonely, why'd you say you're not lonely
Oh you'r a silly girl, I know I heard it so
It's just like you to come and go
And oh me, no you don't even know me
Your so sweet to try oh my, you caught my eye
A girl like you's just irresistible
