DE FIL I COTÓ 14 / SULTANS OF SWING. DIRE STRAITS

La cançó de la setmana. Sultans of swing, de Dire Straits. He estat dubtant entre penjar aquesta, Romeo and Juliet, So far away, Money for nothing, o qualsevol altra, perquè a més de mítiques són totes boníssimes. M'he dicidit per Sultans of swing perquè a més de la seua indubtable qualitat intrínseca em fa recordar moments molt íntims i feliços. Gaudiu-la.



You get a shiver in the dark
Its been raining in the park but meantime
South of the river you stop and you hold everything
A band is blowing dixie double four time
You feel all right when you hear that music ring

You step inside but you dont see too many faces
Coming in out of the rain to hear the jazz go down
Too much competition too many other places
But not too many horns can make that sound
Way on downsouth way on downsouth london town

You check out guitar george he knows all the chords
Mind hes strictly rhythm he doesnt want to make it cry or sing
And an old guitar is all he can afford
When he gets up under the lights to play his thing

And harry doesnt mind if he doesnt make the scene
Hes got a daytime job hes doing alright
He can play honky tonk just like anything
Saving it up for friday night
With the sultans with the sultans of swing

And a crowd of young boys theyre fooling around in the corner
Drunk and dressed in their best brown baggies and their platform soles
They dont give a damn about any trumpet playing band
It aint what they call rock and roll
And the sultans played creole

And then the man he steps right up to the microphone
And says at last just as the time bell rings
thank you goodnight now its time to go home
And he makes it fast with one more thing
we are the sultans of swing

Glòria per sempre a Mark Knopfler! Per edat a penes deuria conéixer-los, però tenia (tinc!) un tio guitarrista, i me les sabia totes.

Osti, Urbà, m'has recordat que no he inclòs "Romeo and Juliet" en el CD de música de fons per al sopar de la meua boda, i ja no estic a temps... Ah, els detalls!

Emili, espere que l'absència de Romeo and Juliet siga l'únic defecte de la teva boda. Felicitats a totsdos.

Comtessa, a recordar!
