[Música do Dia] Heroin de The Velvet Underground – Cover pelos You Can’t Win, Charlie Brown – com Letra

A música tem esta capacidade maravilhosa de empolar as nossas emoções e de nos fazer ferver o sangue como poucas outras coisas conseguem. São as letras, a sonoridade, as vozes, quando as há, o conjugar de toda uma atmosfera que nos envolve e nos transporta, fazendo-nos identificar com o que ouvimos e expelindo muito do que guardamos dentro de nós. E, com todo o respeito e admiração que tenho pelos The Velvet Underground, esta cover dos You Can’t Win, Charlie Brown está simplesmente brutal. Quem já ouviu de perto e ao vivo, consegue perceber a harmonia que existe entre os seis elementos, toda a empatia que existe entre a sonoridade dos instrumentos, e como a voz de Afonso Cabral fica no ouvido e ecoa mesmo depois da música acabar. Um excelente trabalho desta banda, que é, sem a menor dúvida, uma das melhores do nosso país e arredores.

Entrevista dada ao Morrighan: http://www.branmorrighan.com/2014/01/entrevista-aos-you-cant-win-charlie.html

I don’t know just where I’m going

But I’m gonna try for the kingdom if I can

‘Cause it makes me feel like I’m a man

When I put a spike into my vein

Then I tell you things aren’t quite the same

When I’m rushing on my run

And I feel just like Jesus’ son

And I guess that I just don’t know

And I guess that I just don’t know


I have made the big decision

I’m gonna try to nullify my life

‘Cause when the blood begins to flow

When it shoots up the dropper’s neck

When I’m closing in on death


And you can’t help me, not you guys

Or all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk

You can all go take a walk

And I guess I just don’t know

And I guess that I just don’t know


I wish that I was born a thousand years ago

I wish that I’d sailed the darkened seas

On a great big clipper ship

Going from this land here to that

On a sailor’s suit and cap


Away from the big city

Where a man cannot be free

Of all the evils of this town

And of himself and those around

Oh, and I guess that I just don’t know

Oh, and I guess that I just don’t know


Heroin, be the death of me

Heroin, it’s my wife and it’s my life, ha-ha

Because a mainer to my vein

Leads to a center in my head

And then I’m better off than dead


Because when the smack begins to flow

I really don’t care anymore

About all the Jim-Jims in this town

And all the politicians making crazy sounds

And everybody putting everybody else down

And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds


‘Cause when the smack begins to flow

Then I really don’t care anymore


Ah, when that heroin is in my blood

And the blood is in my head

Man thank God that I’m as good as dead

And thank your God that I’m not aware

And thank God that I just don’t care

And I guess that I just don’t know

Oh, and I guess that I just don’t know

    Olá a todos, sejam muito bem-vindos! O meu nome é Sofia Teixeira e sou a autora do BranMorrighan, o meu blogue pessoal criado a 13 de Dezembro de 2008.

    O nome tem origens no fantástico e na mitologia celta. Bran, o abençoado, e Morrighan, a deusa da guerra, têm sido os símbolos desta aventura com mais de uma década, ambos representados por um corvo.
