Volbeat

Y nada mejor que empezar el año con una banda que conocí el año pasado y que para mí es una de las mejores bandas de rock moderno. Si Elvis levantara la cabeza estaría muy orgulloso de estos tíos. Aquí algunas de sus mejores canciones:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Y encima tienen un directo acojonante:

Mr. Big

Otra de esas bandas que me acompañaron en mi adolescencia. Surgieron a finales de los 80 pero su gran éxito se dio a principios de los 90 con la canción To be with you (estar contigo) y con un éxito menor su segundo single Just take my heart (llévate mi corazón) o el primer single de su siguiente álbum Wild world, una versión de una canción de Cat Stevens. Tienen otras muy buenas canciones que no tuvieron tanto éxito: Green tinted sixties mind, Nothing but love, Promise her the moon, Goin’ where the wind blows, Ain’t seen love like that o Where are they now (bastante posterior).

 

Someone said life is for the taking
Here I am with my hand out waiting for a ride
I’ve been living on my great expectations
What good is it when I’m stranded here
And the world just passes by
Where are the signs to help me get out of this place

If I should stumble on my moment in time,
How will I know?
If the story’s written on my face, does it show?
Am I strong enough to walk on water
Smart enough to come in out of the rain?
Or am I a fool going where the wind blows (wind blows)?

Here I sit halfway to somewhere
Thinking about what’s in front of me and what I left behind
On my own, supposed to be so easy
Is this what I’ve been after
Or have I lost my mind?
Maybe this is my chance and it’s coming to take me away, yeah

If I should stumble on my moment in time,
How will I know?
If the story’s written on my face, does it show?
Am I strong enough to walk on water
Smart enough to come in out of the rain?
Or am I a fool going where the wind blows (wind blows)?

Here I am walking naked through the world
Taking up space, society’s child
Make room for me, make room for me,
make room for me

Am I strong enough to walk on water?
Smart enough to come in out of the rain?
Or am I a fool
Going where the wind blows (where the wind blows),
Going where the wind blows?

Hey, yeah yeah
You don’t know what you’ve got
Till the love is almost gone
This time, yeah she’s given up
Still in a state of shock
I should’ve seen it coming on
It’s too late for waking up
Her mind’s made up
I know the dream is over
But my heart just can’t let go
She’s too good to be forgotten
Too good to be true
Before my world is torn apart
I’ll promise her the moon
I’ll promise her the moon
I was too blind to notice her
Wrapped up in myself
Workin’ hard overtime, night and day
I thought we were so secure
Can’ imagine someone else
Could come between us
And take her away
Her mind’s made up
I know the dream is over
But my heart just can’t let go
She’s too good to be forgotten
Too good to be true
Before my world is torn apart
I’ll promise her the moon
I’ll promise her the moon
And all the time she stood by me
I never said “I love you”
Yeah, I kept it deep down in my soul
And all the while I’ve been a fool
yeah, yeah yeah.
