Wish You Were Here.

Ya que estoy poniendo videos musicales, no debo dejar de mencionar a mis adorados Pink Floyd. Esto es Wish You Were Here, canción dedicada a Syd Barrett, de cuyo reciente fallecimiento ya hablé en este post.




So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Y ya mismo volvemos a tener a Roger Waters en Barcelona, a ver si esta vez puedo ir para allá.

Como metadona de los Floyd tenemos a los Pink Tones, que me encantaron en su último concierto en la sala Joy Slava (si suena pijo, pero tiene una acústica excelente)

Wish you were here merece para mi un lugar entre los 3 mejores discos de la historia... pura morfina musical.
