This place is a prison

Un cantec despre neputinta. Sublim prin simplitate si puterea mesajului.

The Postal Service - This place is a prison

This place is a prison
And this people aren't your friends
Inhaling thrills through $20 bills
And the tumblers are drained and then flooded again
And again

Ther're guards at the on ramps armed to be teeth
And you may case the grounds from the cascades to puget sound,
But you are not permitted to leave

I know there's a big world out there like the one i saw on the screen
In my living room late last night,
It was almost too bright to see
And i know that it's not a party if it happens every night
Pretending there's glamour and candelabra
When you're drinking by candlelight

What does it take to get a drink in this place?

What does it take, how long must i wait?

Groove Armada - At the river

O piesa pe care am ascultat-o prima data prin 2002 (desi e mai veche de atat). Primisem un cd mostra de trip-hop mai putin "circulat" sa-i zic..
"At the river", piesa de rezistenta a celor de la Groove Armada (in afara de celebra "I see you baby") este unul din cantecele care la vremea aceea m-au facut sa "cad" in meandrele muzicii electronice adevarate..Asemenea acestei piese, imi amintesc de placerea cu care ascultasem "Vinger and salt" de la Hooverphonic si "Daydream in Blue" - I monster.

Deocamdata impartasesc/reamintesc "At the river", intr-o minunata interpretare live, in cadrul "Isle Of Wight Festival 2007"

Si daca vreti sa pastram atmosfera de relaxare solara, primiti si "Healty Drug" de la Southpaw..

Groove Armada - At the river (live)

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air,
quaint little villages here and there

Southpaw - Healthy Drug

Will you be my secret lover?
Underwear or undercover
Will you be my favourite creature?
A little nicer than my English teacher

Healthy drug, healthy drug...

Will you be my cosmic dancer?
See, my heart beats like sequencer
Will you be my private preacher?
A little wiser than my P.E. teacher

Healthy drug, healthy drug

Oh, my healthy drug
I know I just wouldn't get enough
But now a brand new day
Is gettin' born again
My body is full of pain
So I have to go and kill some more of my braincells.
Will you be my secret lover?
Underwear or undercover
Will you watch me when I'm singing?
And every end with you
Is a new beginning
