Tribute to The Smiths


Seit einer Woche versinkt die Welt im Nebel. Ich greife wieder zur Poesie und höre viel Musik...







Dieses Wochenende ist ganz besonders für mich, denn ich fahre zur Morrissey - Konzert!
Morrissey war 1982-87 Frontman der legendären Band "The Smiths" (My Love...) und später begann er
seine Solokarriere. Er wird diesmal in Berlin neben der Promo der neuen Platte auch drei Smiths Songs spielen. Für diese 3 fahre ich dorthin:

"Asleep", die B-Seite der Single "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side
"The Queen Is Dead", Album: The Queen Is Dead
"Meat Is Murder", Album: "Meat Is Murder"

Ich habe für euch eine TOP 15 meiner Lieblings-Smiths-Songs zusammengestellt und ein Lied davon ist
außerhalb der Konkurrenz...

...auf  eine einsame Insel würde ich diesen Song mitnehmen:
"Reel Around the Fountain" 
Album: "The Smiths" 1984







....und dann, wenn ich wählen muss, noch die 15 wunderbare Lieder... welche in irgendwelcher Art auch ein Teil meiner Geschichte erzählen:

"Unloveable"...Ach, ich liebe diesen Song für diese Zeilen:

"I wear black on the outside
'Cause black is how I feel on the inside
I w ear black on the outside
'Cause black is how I feel on the inside"

Habe ich es gesagt oder Morrissey? Moz, er erzählt einem seine eigene Geschichte
...die von mir, vielleicht aber auch die Geschichte von dir? 

15. "I Know It's Over"  CLICK ein Song für jedes gebrochene Herz: 


"...See, the sea wants to take me
The knife wants to slit me
Do you think you can help me?..."


und

"If you're so funny
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
And if you're so clever
Then why are you on your own tonight ?

...das haut mich um, lassen mich in eine endlose Tiefe versinken voller Schmerz,

"I Know It's Over", The Smiths
Album: The Queen Is Dead" 1896


"Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
And as I climb into an empty bed
Oh well. Enough said
I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Oh...

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
See, the sea wants to take me
The knife wants to slit me
Do you think you can help me?

Sad veiled bride, please be happy
Handsome groom, give her room
Loud, loutish lover, treat her kindly
Though she needs you more than she loves you

And I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Over and over and over and over
Over and over, la...

I know it's over
And it never really began
But in my heart it was so real
And you even spoke to me, and said :
"If you're so funny
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
And if you're so clever
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
If you're so very entertaining
Then why are you on your own tonight ?
If you're so very good-looking
Why do you sleep alone tonight ?
I know...

Cause tonight is just like any other night
That's why you're on your own tonight
With your triumphs and your charms
While they're in each other's arms..."
It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes strength to be gentle and kind
Over, over, over, over

It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes guts to be gentle and kind
Over, over

Love is natural and real
But not for you, my love
Not tonight, my love
Love is natural and real
But not for such as you and I, my love

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head"
