03 INCREDIBLE STRING BAND (1968) Maya
04 PANDA BEAR - Friendship Bracelet

Esto que sigue es una especie de "homenaje" a las fiestas (allá, a comienzos de los 80s) en el Club San Fernando. No me acuerdo el nombre del DJ. Lo que si me acuerdo es que era un cheto del carajo y los "nadies" como nosotros lo admirábamos secretamente...

En esa época se pasaba una "tanda de lentos" en los bailes. Y se iba "bajando" de a poco, hasta llegar al climax en donde todos buscábamos desesperadamente algún tipo de conquista...

Según mi standard actual, la calidad de los temas que sonaban en ese momento (los que siguen son una muestra), va desde "bueno", hasta "absolutamente deplorable", pasando por todos los grises posibles.

09 PLANXTY - You rambling boys of pleasure



You rambling boys of pleasure, give ear to those few lines I write,
Although I'm a rover, and in roving I take great delight.
I cast my mind on a handsome girl who ofttimes she does me slight,
But my mind is never easy till my true love is in my sight.

Down by yon flow'ry gardens, where me and my true love do meet,
I took her in my arms, and unto her gave kisses sweet
She bade take love easy, just as the leaves fall from the tree.
But I was young and foolish, with my true love could not agree.

And the second time I met my love, I thought that her heart was surely mine.
But as the season changes, my darling girl has changed her mind
Gold is the root of evil, although it bears a glistening hue
Causes many the lad and the lass to part, though their hearts, like mine, be e'er so true.

Sure I wish I was in Belfast town, and my true love along with me.
With money in my pocket to keep us in good company.
Liquor to be plenty, a flowing glass on every side,
Hard fortune would ne'er daunt me, for I am young and the world is wide.

Optional last verse:

But there's one thing more that grieves me sore is to be called a runaway
And to leave the spot I was born in, oh Cupid cannot set me free,
And to leave that darling girl I love, oh alas, what will I do?
Will I become a rover, sleep with the girl I never knew?

12 KING CREOSOTE (2003) Lavender Moon

de acá saqué la letra:

Had a dream last night of you
Wandering down an empty street from down a lane
So I ran up to you tripping over cobble stones
when I awoke alone and in vain
I felt empty and confused
I sat there with your clothes near me
I reached up and grabbed a lamplight
Which fell and broke

I stared through empty eyes
Of lavender moon and I
Far beyond your tears now
Still outside in the mist, drenched to the bone
And you sang Everything’s all right

We’d walked through summer fields
Live the life of sin (?), cry on hard walls together, we did everything
Well at night we talked and talked
Questioned what the future embraced
Hugging perfect shapes all day
We’d lie and sleep in

But now you’ve left and gone
And all I have are memories of you
They return to me when I’m asleep
When dreams...
What I was, it was true (?)

Do you have a headache, my son
Do you have a headache
Or is it your kidneys, my son
Or is it your kidneys

I don't have a headache, mother
I don't have a headache
I have a heartache, mother
About last night

She has agreed, mother
She has agreed
My first true love, mother
And she's getting married

07 donovan - Legend of a Girl Child Linda

I will bring you gold apples and grapes made of rubies
That have shone in the eyes of a prince of the breeze.
Bright cascading crystals, they danced in the sand dunes
On the beach of no footprints to harpsichord tunes.
A throne of white ivory, a gown of white lace
Lies still in the magic of a timeless place.
One hundred small children, they laugh at the white doves
That rest on their hands with the touch of love.
On a hillside of velvet the children they lay down
And make fun of the grown-ups with their silly frown.
And the sound of their laughter is the sound of the green sea
As it washed around the foot of the seashell tree.
The doves circle over and land in the trees
Where parrots are talking their words with such ease.
Thus spoke three wizards to the young ones that day:
"There's sadness in the kingdom, make it go far away."
If you follow the sunbeams through the valley of flowers
To the palace of the White Queen with its white jade towers.
The youngest, she sighed then the clouds drew away
And a hundred small fingers scratched their heads in dismay.
>From out of the sun a giant gull came flying
And the children got ready to sit on its wings.
They waved to the raindrops as they soared over the trees
The wind tossed their hair high, flashing gold on the sea.
They came to the castle and there they did fall,
And they saw all the sadness, through the crystal wall.
A princess lay a-sleeping so gentle and kind
Whilst her prince took to battle with his confused mind.
The clash of bright metal brought the children fear,
But their cloaks of blue satin dried up all of these tears.
Thus children held hands and they spelled out their name
All the golden children became a golden chain.
It lies on a white throne in a magic place
With a tunic of velvet and a gown of white lace.
My sword, it lies broken and cast in a lake
In a dream I was told that my princess would wake.

08 donovan - Quuen Mab

09 donovan - Celeste

Here I stand acting like a silly clown would,
I don't know why Would anybody like to try
The changes I'm going through ?
A hidden lie would fortify
Something that don't exist
But it ain't so bad, I'm just a lad,
So many more things to do,
I intend to come right through them all with you.
My songs are merely dreams visiting my mind
We talk a while by a crooked stile,
You're lucky to catch a few.
There's no magic wand in a perfumed hand,
It's a pleasure to be true.
In my crystal halls a feather falls
Being beautiful just for you
But that might not be quite true, that's up to you.
Dawn crept in unseen to find me still awake
A strange young girl sang her songs for me
And left 'fore the day was born.
That dark princess with saddening jest
She lowered her eyes of woe,
And I felt her sigh, I wouldn't like to try
The changes she's going through
But I hope love comes right through them all with you.

Louis was my dearest friend
Fighting in the ANZAC trench
Louis ran forward from the line
I never saw him again
Later in the dark
I thought I heard Louis’ voice
Calling for his mother, then me
But I couldn’t get to him
He’s still up on that hill
20 years on that hill
Nothing more than a pile of bones
But I think of him still
If I was asked I’d tell
The colour of the earth that day
It was dull and browny red
The colour of blood, I’d say
