Dia de Ouvir: Creedence Clearwater Revival

Impressionante. Quase 50 anos e essa banda continua ótima.

Who’ll Stop The Rain (Creedence Clearwater Revival)

Long as I remember
The rain been comin’ down
Clouds of mystery pourin’
Confusion on the ground
Good men through the ages
Tryin’ to find the sun
And I wonder, still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain?

I went down Virginia
Seekin’ shelter from the storm
Caught up in the fable
I watched the tower grow
Five year plans and new deals
Wrapped in golden chains
And I wonder, still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain?

Heard the singers playin’
How we cheered for more
The crowd had rushed together
Tryin’ to keep warm
Still the rain kept pourin’
Fallin’ on my ears
And I wonder, still I wonder
Who’ll stop the rain?

Dia de Ouvir: The Verve, Lucky Man

Lucky Man
(The Verve)

Happiness
More or less
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Oh my, my
Happiness
Coming and going
I watch you look at me
Watch my fever growing
I know just where I am

But how many corners do I have to turn?
How many times do I have to learn?
All the love I have is in my mind?

Well, I’m a lucky man
With fire in my hands

Happiness
Something in my own place
I’m standing naked
Smiling, I feel no disgrace
With who I am
Happiness
Coming and going
I watch you look at me
Watch my fever growing
I know just who I am

But how many corners do I have to turn?
How many times do I have to learn?
All the love I have is in my mind?

I hope you understand
I hope you understand

Gotta love that’ll never die

Happiness
More or less
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Happiness
Coming and going
I watch you look at me
Watch my fever growing
I know
Oh my, my
Oh my, my
Oh my, my
Oh my, my

Gotta love that’ll never die
Gotta love that’ll never die
No, no
I’m a lucky man

It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Oh my, my
Oh my, my
It’s just a change in me
Something in my liberty
Oh my, my
Oh my, my

Dia de Ouvir: The White Stripes, “Seven Nation Army”

Eu adoro essa música.

O clipe é hipnótico: a baterista tem charme, o riff é curto e forte e ela possui a melhor linha de baixo da década passada.

THEWHITESTRIPESSARAIVAII

Seven Nation Army (The White Stripes)

I’m going to fight them off
A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back
They’re gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I’m talking to myself at night
Because I can’t forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarrette

And the message coming from my eyes
Says “Leave it alone”

Don’t want to hear about it
Every single one’s got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it coming back my way
I’m gonna serve it to you
And that ain’t what you want to hear
But that’s what I’ll do

And the feeling coming from my bones
Says “Find a home”

I’m going to Wichita
Far from this opera for evermore
I’m gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding, and I’m bleeding
Right before the Lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me and I will think
No more

And the stains coming from my blood
Tell me go back home

 

Detalhe, a música virou o hino de guerra do Bayern de Munique nas comemorações dos gols.

Dia de Ouvir: Foo Fighters

Dave Grohl era baterista do Nirvana até o fim da banda com a morte de Kurt Cobain. A partir dessa tragédia, ele passou aos vocais e às composições e  surgiu o Foo Fighters, uma das bandas de rock mais interessantes em atividade. 

O vídeo acima foi uma iniciativa de 1.000 fãs tocando a música “Learn to Fly”, (uma das minhas preferidas) para chamar a atenção da banda e convencê-la a realizar um show na cidade de Cesena, na Itália. Ficou incrível.

Learn To Fly (Foo Fighters)

Run and tell all of the angels
This could take all night
Think I need a devil
To help me get things right
Hook me up a new revolution
‘Cause this one is a lie
We sat around laughing
And watched the last one die

I’m looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I’m looking for complication
Looking, cause I’m tired of lying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly high

I think I’m done nursing the patience
I can wait one night
I’d give it all away
If you give me one last try
We’ll live happily ever trapped
If you just save my life
Run and tell the angels
That everything is alright

I’m looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I’m looking for a complication
Looking, cause I’m tired of trying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly high
Make my way back home when I learn to…

Fly along with me
I can’t quite make it alone
Try and make this life my own
Fly along with me
I can’t quite make it alone
Try to make this life my own

I’m looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I’m looking for a complication
Looking, cause I’m tired of trying
Make my way back home when I learn to…

Looking to the sky to save me
Looking for a sign of life
Looking for something to help me burn out bright
I’m looking for a complication
Looking, cause I’m tired of trying
Make my way back home when I learn to fly high
Make my way back home when I learn to fly
Make my way back home when I learn to…

E de bônus seguem os vídeos das músicas “Best of You” e “Everlong”, outros hits fantásticos.

Para fechar coloco essa palestra que foi ministrada por Dave Grohl sobre composição de suas músicas, o meio empresarial, empreendedorismo e como ele montou o próprio selo para gravar e vender suas obras.
