Diéresis

Nobleza obliga. En el blog del amigo "dos puntitos" hay una entrada con mi nombre que ejemplifica dos canciones que a él le alegran el alma.
Yo no las conocía, ni siquiera la de M.E. Walsh porque aparentemente no tuve infancia. Le agradezco sobremanera el habérmelas hecho conocer.
A mí, que soy más extranjerizante y hippie me alegra el alma la siguiente canción, "Scarlet Begonias", begonias escarlatas.
Para muchos viejos hippies "el sueño terminó" cuando lo asesinaron a John Lennon. Para mí cuando el cantante y guitarrista de esta canción murió de coma diabético.
Es lo que los americanos llaman "laid back music", música para reclinarte en tu sillón.
Psicodelia, flores escarlatas, globos y clima de fiesta, una alegría medida pero que se mete por los poros.
Un reencuentro con la fiesta que olvidamos que es la existencia.
Un banquete.
Ladies and gentlemen.....
The Grateful Dead.

As I was walkin' round Grosvenor Square
Not a chill to the winter
but a nip to the air
From the other direction
she was calling my eye
It could be an illusion
but I might as well try
Might as well try.

She had rings on her fingers and
bells on her shoes,
And I knew without askin' she was
into the blues
Scarlet begonias
tucked into her curls
I knew right away
she was not like other girls--
other girls

In the thick of the evening
when the dealing got rough
She was too pat to open and
too cool to bluff
As I picked up my matches and
was closing the door
I had one of those flashes:
I'd been there before--
been there before.

[Bridge]
I ain't often right
but I've never been wrong
It seldom turns out the way
it does in the song
Once in a while
you get shown the light
in the strangest of places
if you look at it right

Well there ain't nothin' wrong
with the way she moves
Or scarlet begonias or a
touch of the blues
And there's nothing wrong with
the love that's in her eye
I had to learn the hard way
to let her pass by--
let her pass by

The wind in the willows played Tea for Two
The sky was yellow and the sun was blue
Strangers stopped strangers
just to shake their hand
Everybody's playing
in the Heart of Gold Band
Heart of Gold Band

me encanta que me realgen libros. comida, tambien. pero amo que me regalen canciones, no discos, canciones. y entonces aparece usted, lleno de propuestas preciosas, y trae canciones y bailaes y risas bajo el brazo y me presenta esta cancion que me pone a bailar por el living de casa...
es una cancion alegre, y pone el cuerpo en un estado emocional interesante.
