Em 31 de outubro de 1975

foi lançado o tema Bohemian Rapsody dos QUEEN.

 

Este tema fantástico é formado por três partes principais:

um segmento de balada que termina com um solo de guitarra,

uma passagem operática e uma secção de hard rock.

 

Quanto à composição, o tema consiste em seis secções:

1. introdução

2. balada

3. solo de guitarra

4. ópera

5. hard rock

6. conclusão

Um formato com mudanças abruptas de estilo, tom e andamento,

que não era comum em músicas de rock.

 

Freddie Mercury escreveu a maior parte de Bohemian Rhapsody 

em sua casa,no oeste de Londres. Aliás, começou a desenvolver

o tema já no final da década de 1960.

BOHEMIAN RAPSODY FAZ HOJE 40 ANOS!

 

 

* * * 

 

O jornal The New York Times comentou que "a característica mais distintiva da música é a letra fatalista". Freddie Mercury recusou-se a explicar a sua composição, dizendo apenas que se tratava de relacionamentos; a banda ainda protege o segredo da música, apesar de Brian May apoiar ideias que sugerem que o tema possui referências veladas a traumas pessoais de Freddie Mercury, relembrando que "Freddie era uma pessoa muito complexa: irreverente e engraçada no exterior, mas escondia inseguranças e problemas com sua vida e sua infância. Ele nunca explicou a letra, mas eu acho que ele colocou muito de si mesmo naquela música" 

 

Num documentário da BBC Three sobre o making of de Bohemian Rhapsody, Roger Taylor afirmou que o verdadeiro significado da música é "bastante auto-explicativo, apenas com um pouco de nonsense no meio".

"Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

Open your eyes,
Look up to the skies and see,
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low,
Anyway the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.

Mama, ooh,
Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sent shivers down my spine,
Body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Mama, ooh (anyway the wind blows),
I don't wanna die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango?
Thunderbolt and lightning,
Very, very frightening me.
(Galileo) Galileo.
(Galileo) Galileo,
Galileo Figaro
Magnifico.

I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me.
He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go?
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let him go!)
Bismillah! We will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Will not let you go. (Let me go!)
Never, never let you go
Never let me go, oh.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
Oh, mama mia, mama mia (Mama mia, let me go.)
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

(Oh, yeah, oh yeah)

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see,
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters to me.

Anyway the wind blows."

"I'm going to shatter some illusions," he smiles. "It was just one of those pieces I wrote for the album: just writing my batch of songs. In its early stages I almost rejected it, but then it grew. We started deciding on a single about halfway through. There were a few contenders - we were thinking of 'The Prophet's Song' at one point - but then 'Bohemian Rhapsody' seemed the one. There was a time when the others wanted to chop it around a bit, but I refused. If it was going to be released, it would be in its entirety. We knew it was very risky, but we had so much confidence in that song - I did anyway. I felt, underneath it all, that if it was successful it would earn a lot of respect."

He takes a fresh breath and continues. "People were all going, You're joking, they'll never play it, you'll only hear the first few bars and then they'll fade it out. We had numerous rows. EMI were shocked - A six-minute single? You must be joking! The same in America - Oh, you just got away with it in Britain."

Hoje, em 1975, enquanto os Pink Floyd estavam em Abbey Road a gravar o seu nono álbum de estúdio 'Wish You Were Here', receberam a visita inesperada de Syd Barrett, coincidentemente no momento em que o grupo estava a gravar o tema "Shine On You Crazy Diamond ', que era um tributo a Barrett, que apesar de ter sido um membro muito importante dos Pink Floyd, nessa época já não integrava o grupo devido a graves problemas de saúde e drogas.

Today, in 1975, while Pink Floyd were in Abbey Road recording their ninth studio album 'Wish You Were Here', received the unexpected visit from Syd Barrett, coincidentally at the time the group was recording the theme "Shine on You Crazy Diamond ', which was a tribute to Barrett, who despite having been a very important member of Pink Floyd, at that time no longer was part of the group due to serious health and drug problems.

'Sunset.

Another sunset.

I know it looks undistinguishable from the last but I remember the difference.'

* * *

 

 

Hoje finalmente encontrei este tema!

Só o ouvi uma vez, há vários anos.

 

E há vários anos que o procurava, mas não sabia o titulo nem o autor.

Mesmo assim, procurei das mais variadas formas. E nada!

 

Eu sabia que o encontraria. 

Nos últimos dias, estava constantemente a lembrar-me dele,

e com a sensação estranhamente boa que o encontraria em breve.


E sim! Foi hoje!


O tema veio ter comigo! Literalmente!

Na Rádio Nostalgia​, ao início da noite, na edição da"Idade da inocência" de Luis Ferreira de Almeida.

Eu estava a conduzir, e quando ouvi as primeiras notas e me pareceu o tema que eu tanto procurei,

tive que parar o carro para ouvir! Eu sei, é estranho, mas é verdade!


Foi um momento muito feliz para mim.

Obrigada Rádio Nostalgia! 

Obrigada Luis Ferreira de Almeida por ter escolhido precisamente este tema, entre tantos outros,

para homenagear Richard Harris.

 

'Slides' de Richard Harris!!!

 

Muito bom. Encontrei-o!

Encontrei-o, finalmente!

SLIDES. ENCONTREI-TE | SLIDES. I FOUND YOU

"Morning chaps.

I’d like to welcome you back to the third form of your years,

I trust you’ll thrive in here.

Others in the past have come alive in here.

Happy to say they found their way.

You recall I asked, back when I saw you last,

that you’d consult my list of books for summer reading.

We’ll go over those and others

you’ll be needing for the coming year, if I’m still here.

I suppose you heard the word that’s going about,

my superiors doubt I’m fit to teach you.

Have a nip before the game and they’ll impeach you.

Forget about the fact that I reach you.

I reach you.

Well, enough of that.

Lets get on with it.

I’ve arranged to show some slides that might amuse you.

And if, of course, you’re bored, then I’ll excuse you.

Though what you’re about to see,

in times of sickness, is my cure,

living well is my best revenge, you can be sure.

This is the Grand Canyon, in the great State of Arizona.

See there, the magnificent blend of all the colours of the rainbow.

It is virtually unphotographable at any given point to so vast.

The Colorado River trickles through its base like a deeply buried brook.

Geologists say that with time and erosion the Pacific Ocean,

some 300 miles West, will one day reach the Canyon and flow through there.

I camped here, see?

Right there.

Oh, what peace I found.

The only sounds I heard were the sounds I made.

No-no, it is true.

And here beyond, on a remote roadside stand,

an Indian boy planted himself arms folded beneath a sign 

that said “seashells should lead the world”.

This is a hobo, a dying bread.

A pity.

He claimed that an inheritance fortune

awaited him in a bank back East but he couldn’t care less.

There’s more of them.

The one with the umbrella claimed to be the real Mr. Bojangles.

Sunset.

Another sunset.

I know it looks undistinguishable from the last but I remember the difference.

Vancouver, British Columbia.

I spent some time there at a ski lodge.

Something so healthy and wholesome about skiers.

Like this one.

She always seemed to appear when I took a slip

on the slops where I had no business being.

But I’d look up and there she’d be.

And soon it happen that whenever she’d turned and look up, there I’d be.

The chalet.

Inside there, by a warm fire, is where my mind has want to wander now.

To the scent of pine and the taste of wine.

You’re too young for wine now but make a note of it.

There she is again.

We rented those horses for a day.

See mine? His name was...

Oh what was it now? I forget. Oh yes, it was sugar.

And there’s my friend again.

She looks rather sad there.

It seems that everyday, well, she always had some special plan for us.

And this, this is a beautiful Indian girl.

Look at her!

She and her secret mysterious ways.

The pride of her people.

Our sunshine, the said of her.

This was the road South into Oregon.

This is how logs are transported, long rafts that trail the northwest rivers.

Big Sur, California.

An old Spanish Mission.

Carmel, California.

Those trees seemed frozen against the landscape.

They remind me of a book I once heard of called The Cypresses Believe in God.

This was near the end of my adventure.

The clock in my head told me it was time to leave.

So that I was more concerned with seeing

what I could first hand

rather then rush for the camera.

I find that travelling alone is somehow more realistic then with others.

You find yourself in a new place all alone and you deal with it

as oppose to when you’re with others who are familiar to you

and in a sense shelter you from situations you would otherwise meet head on.

You know what I mean?

Besides, if your loved ones are with you, you have no one to go home to."

 Tema fantástico de Hélder Moutinho.

Tanto pela letra, como pela voz, pela interpretação e pela música.

 

 

* * *

 

TENHO UM POEMA QUE TE QUERO REVELAR

 

 

* * *

 

 

"Venho de um tempo onde o tempo não havia
Quando o azul do céu não nos queimava
E a noite, antes de ser noite, era dia
E a tarde, antes de ser, nunca tardava

Venho de um tempo onde toda a solidão
Não se sabia meu amor, não se sabia
Era mais clara a cor agreste da paixão
E a desventura não havia, não havia

Tenho um poema que te quero revelar
Seara brava, lua cheia, quem me dera!
Breve novembro onde encontrei o teu olhar
Para me perder de uma só vez na primavera

Rasguei o medo de viver, rasguei a sorte
Provei o fel das minhas magoas e fracassos
Pedi à vida para viver até à morte
Pedi à morte para matar os meus cansaços

Não inventei de uma só vez esta distancia
Não entendi de uma só vez o entendimento
A nossa vida é muito mais que a nossa infância
A nossa morte é muito mais que o sofrimento

Tenho um poema que te quero revelar
Seara brava, lua cheia, quem me dera!
Breve novembro onde encontrei o teu olhar
Para me perder de uma só vez na primavera

Venho de um tempo, onde o tempo não havia"

The Velvet Underground  - Pale Blue Eyes
 

* * *

 

"Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad
Sometimes I feel so happy
But lately you just make me mad.
Lately you just make me mad
Linger on, your pale blue eyes,
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

I thought of you as my mountain top
I thought of you as my peak.
I thought of you as everything
I've had but couldn't keep,
I've had but couldn't keep.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes,
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

If I could make the world as pure and strange as what I see,
I'd put you in the mirror I place in front of me
I'd place in front of me.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes,
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

Skip a life completely, stuff it in a cup.
She said money is like us in time,
It lies but can't stand up.
Down for you is up.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes,
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

It was fun what we did yesterday
and I'd do it once again.
The fact that you are married
It only proves that you're my best friend.
But it's truly, truly a sin.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes"

Pale Blue Eyes  foi escrita por Lou Reed e interpretada pelos The Velvet Underground.
Foi incluída em 1969 no album The Velvet Underground da banda com o mesmo nome.

"Imagine an actor, saying the following...
.

Imagine me, saying the following:

When Debussy died, on March the 25th 1918 in Paris,
It was being bombarded by the Germans, and it was raining....
It was raining...


And it was raining...
And it's weeping in my heart, like it's raining in the town


It wanes


Weeping in my heart(...) like it's raining...
It wanes
It wanes
It wanes


Eventually Claude Debussy was recognized as one of the best composers of his time.
Today, he is more than that.
He is considered not only the greatest french composer who ever lived, he is considered the revolutionary who set 20th century music, on its way...

On its way...."

Lembrei-me do belo clássico de Lou Reed.

 

 

 


Lou Reed - Perfect Day

 

 

 

Just a perfect day
drink Sangria in the park
And then later
when it gets dark, we go home

Just a perfect day
feed animals in the zoo
Then later
a movie, too, and then home

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spend it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Just a perfect day
problems all left alone
Weekenders on our own
it's such fun

Just a perfect day
you made me forget myself
I thought I was
someone else, someone good

Oh, it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow
You're going to reap just what you sow

If you see me walkin’ down the street
And I start to cry each time we meet
Walk on by
Walk on by

Make believe
That you don’t see the tears, just let me grieve
In private ‘cause each time I see you
I break down and cry

Walk on by (Don’t stop)
Walk on by (Don’t stop)
Walk on by

I just can’t get over losin’ you
And so if I seem broken and blue
Walk on by
Walk on by

Foolish pride
Is all that I have left, so let me hide
The tears and the sadness you gave me
When you said goodbye

Walk on by (Don’t stop)
Walk on by (Don’t stop)
Walk on by (Don’t stop)
Walk on

Walk on by
Walk on by

Foolish pride
That’s all that I have left, so let me hide
The tears and the sadness you gave me
When you said goodbye

Walk on by (Don’t stop)
Walk on by (Don’t stop)
Now you really gotta go , so walk on by (Don’t, don’t stop)
Baby, leave, you’ll never see the tears I cry (Don’t, don’t stop)
Now you really gotta go , so walk on by (Don’t, don’t stop)
Baby, leave, you’ll never see the tears I cry (Don’t, don’t stop)
Now you really gotta go , so walk on by (Don’t, don’t stop)

MEU AMOR DÁ-ME OS TEUS LÁBIOS

Lindo. Arrepiante!

 

Impossível não sentir um friozinho no corpo

 

quando se lê este poema e se ouve a interpretação de Camané.

 

 

 

* * *

 

Sei de um rio
sei de um rio
em que as únicas estrelas
nele sempre debruçadas
são as luzes da cidade

Sei de um rio
sei de um rio
rio onde a própria mentira
tem o sabor da verdade
sei de um rio

Meu amor dá-me os teus lábios
dá-me os lábios desse rio
que nasceu na minha sede
mas o sonho continua

E a minha boca até quando
ao separar-se da tua
vai repetindo e lembrando
sei de um rio
sei de um rio
E a minha boca até quando
ao separar-se da tua
vai repetindo e lembrando
sei de um rio
sei de um rio

Sei de um rio
até quando

 Como corre a gazela
pela sombra dos bosques,
enlouquecida pelo próprio perfume,
assim corro eu, enlouquecido,
nesta noite do coração de maio
aquecida pela brisa do Sul.

Perdi o caminho
e erro ao acaso.
Quero o que não tenho,
e tenho o que não quero.

A imagem do meu próprio desejo
sai do meu coração
e, dançando diante de mim,
cintila uma e outra vez,
subitamente.

Quero agarrá-la, mas escapa-se.
E, já longe, chama-me outra vez
do atalho ...
Quero o que não tenho
e tenho o que não quero.
