La canción del Lunes

Hoy voy a cumplir algo que dije hace unas semanas mientras me tomaba unas cervezas, voy a poner una canción de The Doors, y como no podría ser menos será "Light my fire".

Como la presentación ha sido algo corta, os contare una anécdota acerca del vídeo que he elegido de este tema: 17 de Septiembre de 1967, New York, cadena de televisión CBS, "The Ed Sullivan Show" y como estrella invitada el grupo de rock del momento, The Doors, con su éxito Light my fire. Antes de que salieras a tocar su cancion, se les pidió que cambiaran la letra para hacerla más adecuada para la audiencia nacional, específicamente pidieron que cambiasen la línea "nena, no podríamos habernos colocado más" por "nena, no podríamos haberlo hecho mejor" ("girl, we couldn't get much higher" a "girl, we couldn't get much better"). Como os podéis imaginar (si conocéis algo sobre Jim Morrison) NO lo hicieron y cantaron la canción con la letra original, haciendo que Ed Sullivan se enfadase tanto que ni saludo a la banda ni los dejo volver más a su programa.



Canta con Jim

YOU KNOW THAT IT WOULD BE UNTRUE
YOU KNOW THAT I WOULD BE A LIAR
IF I WAS TO SAY TO YOU
GIRL, WE COULDN´T GET MUCH HIGHER
COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE

TIME TO HESITATE IS THROUGH
NO TIME TO WALLOW IN THE MIRE
TRY NOW WE CAN ONLY LOSE
AND OUR LOVE BECOME A FUNERAL PYRE

COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE

AOUH, COME ON!
COME ON, BABE!

YEAH! COME ON!
COME ON!

WOAOUH! YEAH!

IT WAS THE GREATEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE.
ALTHOUGH I STILL HAD NOT FOUND A WIFE
I HAD MY FRIENDS
RIGHT THERE BESIDE ME.
WE WERE CLOSE TOGETHER.
WE TRIPPED THE WALL, WE SCALED THE GRAVEYARD
ANCIENT SHAPES WERE ALL AROUND US.
THE WET DEW FELT FRESH BESIDE THE FOG.
TWO MADE LOVE IN AN ANCIENT SPOT
ONE CHASED A RABBIT INTO THE DARK
A GIRL GOT DRUNK AND BALLED THE DEAD
AND I GAVE EMPTY SERMONS TO MY HEAD.
CEMETARY, COOL AND QUIET
HATE TO LEAVE YOUR SACRED LAY
DREAD THE MILKY COMING OF THE DAY.

AH, AH, AH, AH!
AH, AH, AH, AH!
AH, AH, AH, AH!
AH, AH, AH, AH!
AH, AH, AH, AH!
AH, AH, AH, AH!
AH, AH, AH, AH!
AAH, AAH, AAH, AAH, AAH
AAH, AAH, AAH, AAAH!

TIME TO HESITATE IS THROUGH
NO TIME TO WALLOW IN THE MIRE
TRY NOW WE CAN ONLY LOSE
AND OUR LOVE BECOME A FUNERAL PYRE

COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE

KNOW THAT IT WOULD BE UNTRUE
YOU KNOW THAT I WOULD BE A LIAR
IF I WAS TO SAY TO YOU
GIRL, WE COULDN´T GET MUCH HIGHER

COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
COME ON BABY, LIGHT MY FIRE
TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE
TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE
TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE
TRY TO SET THE NIGHT ON FIRE!

ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT!
ALL RIGHT!
