SEMANAS ASTRAIS
Enquanto eu não consigo escrever muita coisa, 'graças' a um pequeno pepino em casa, deixo a letra de uma música que eu adoro, para 'enfeitar' o blog e não deixá-lo parado...
(para não dizer que Van Morrison não tem nada a ver com cinema, lembrem-se que ele aparece no melhor filme de Martin Scorcese, 'The Last Waltz', cantando uma emocionante versão de Caravan com a The Band matando a pau atrás dele...)

Astral Weeks

If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dream
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again
From the far side of the ocean
If I put the wheels in motion
And I stand with my arms behind me
And I'm pushin' on the door
Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again
There you go
Standin' with the look of avarice
Talkin' to Huddie Ledbetter
Showin' pictures on the wall
Whisperin' in the hall
And pointin' a finger at me
There you go, there you go
Standin' in the sun darlin'
With your arms behind you
And your eyes before
There you go
Takin' good care of your boy
Seein' that he's got clean clothes
Puttin' on his little red shoes
I see you know he's got clean clothes
A-puttin' on his little red shoes
A-pointin' a finger at me
And here I am
Standing in your sad arrest
Trying to do my very best
Lookin' straight at you
Comin' through, darlin'
Yeah, yeah, yeah
If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dreams
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me
Would you kiss-a my eyes
Lay me downIn silence easy
To be born again
To be born again
To be born again
In another world
In another world
In another time
Got a home on high
Ain't nothing but a stranger in this world
I'm nothing but a stranger in this world
I got a home on high
In another land
So far away
So far away
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
In another time
In another place
In another time
In another place
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
We are goin' up to heaven
We are goin' to heaven
In another time
In another place
In another time
In another place
In another face

PS: O disco novo de Bob Dylan, Modern Times, tá SENSACIONAL!!!

Comments:
música genial de disco genial, mas...

... melhor filme de Scorsese? tsc tsc tsc
 
Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, The Band, Emmylou Harris, Staple Singers, Ringo, Ronnie Wood... o senhor Scorcese nunca mais teve um elenco assim.
(pode parecer provocação, mas eu revejo esse filme uma vez por mês, coisa que eu não faço nem com 'Os Bons Companheiros', meu Scorcese 'não musical' favorito. Ter tantos músicos que eu gosto juntos, e eles tocarem tantas músicas que eu curto deve ajudar alguma coisa...)
 
Não acho que é o melhor filme do Scorsese, mas com certeza é o melhor documentário de todos os tempos. E com a melhor banda de todos os tempos!!
