innuendo

De todos os álbuns dos Queen “Innuendo” é o único que adoro ouvir na sua totalidade. Fico com pele de galinha.

Sometimes I get to feelin’
I was back in the old days – long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect – you know ?
The days were endless, we were crazy – we were young
The sun was always shinin’ – we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately – I just don’t know
The rest of my life’s been – just a show
Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you
You can’t turn back the clock, you can’t turn back the tide
Ain’t that a shame ?
Ooh, I’d like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin’ on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately – I just don’t know
Better sit back and go – with the flow
‘Cos these are the days of our lives
They’ve flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find – no change
Those were the days of our lives yeah
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing’s still true
When I look and I find, I still love you
I still love you

O álbum em vinil que possuo, antes de ter adquirido a versão em CD, foi herdado da minha adorada e saudosa Tia Lela. Não me sinto melancólico ao ouvir as músicas. Sinto, isso sim, boas saudades. Alegria. Sinto uma enorme agitação do espírito. Que presumo seja boa.

Sim. É boa.

Acontece-me o mesmo ao ouvir Luciano Pavarotti cantar “Caruso” do filme Caruso ou o Adagio In G Minor para Cordas e Orgão de Albinoni. O Adagio de Albinoni foi ouvido pela primeira vez ao visualizar, em Coimbra, o filme Gallipoli com Mel Gibson.

Jack: What are your legs?
Archy Hamilton: Springs. Steel springs.
Jack: What are they going to do?
Archy Hamilton: Hurl me down the track.
Jack: How fast can you run?
Archy Hamilton: As fast as a leopard.
Jack: How fast are you going to run?
Archy Hamilton: As fast as a leopard.
Jack: Then lets see you do it.

Esta entrada aparentemente desconexa é motivada por lembranças após a notícia do suicídio de uma pessoa, muito, mas muito jovem.

Ao ouvir Headlong na rádio veio-me à mente alguns farrapos da minha memória.
