Marley

A mí, cuando aprietan los calores, siempre me da por Bob Marley:

Old pirates yes they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I from the bottom-less pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the almighty
We forward in this generation triumphantly
Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom
Cause all I ever had redemption songs, redemption songs

Emancipate yourself from the mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none a them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book
Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom
Cause all I ever had redemption songs, redemption songs

Emancipate yourselves from the mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
Cause none a them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look
Yes some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book
Won't you help to sing these songs of freedom
Cause all I ever had redemption songs
All I ever had, redemption songs
These songs of freedom, songs of freedom

  • Jajajaja, ya te imagino en Las Canteras, fumando yerbabuena...
    Nah, es el tópico.
    Marley escribió unas letras intensas y lúcidas. A menudo las obviamos ante la descarga rítmica de la música, pero son para aprender y tener muy en cuenta.

  • Hola Ike. Cuando estuve en Marruecos me sorprendió descubrir que Marley (ya muertito en aquel entonces) era un auténtico héroe popular para los jóvenes de las barriadas de Tanger. Para mucha gente de los países empobrecidos Marley está a mismo nivel de Ché Guevara en su imaginario. Es verdad que en Europa el lado político de Marley pasó desapercibido, es más divertido bailar... pero la múscia negra nos lleva décadas enseñando que se puede bailar, pensar y luchar a la vez (vaya rollo me ha salido, ¿lo borro? no...
