LOS RETOÑOS DE DURHAM son crueles


Para qué decir algo, si aquí se dice mucho. Un grupo al que cuando comencé a escuchar con su Cars & Girls suponía escoceses, y que en realidad son (eran) de Durham (hace tiempo que Paddy McAloon se esconde de las luces). From Langley Park to Memphis (y más allá) el disco que les abrió el camino del gran éxito, pero con grandiosas canciones antes y después de este LP. Aquí una de mis debilidades, con letra completa incluida, Cruel, de los Prefab Sprout, del disco Swoon, 1984 (prouder than proud antes del Davy de Danny Wilson) y con mi interpretación personal de lo que siginifica tuppentup friend, entroncando con el amigo Wodehouse. Los coros pueden cantarse pa pa pa, o ba ba ba, pero si se hacen acompañados de Wendy Smith saldrán siempre perfectos, y no simplemente OK. Aquí tenéis la tablatura de esta bella canción de Prefab Sprout.

Cruel is the gospel that's sets us all free,
Then takes you away from me

There is no Chicago
urban blues,
more heartfelt than my
lament for you.

I'm a liberal guy,
too cool for the macho ache,
with a secret tooth,
for the cherry on the cake.

With a pious smile,
a smile that changes what I say.
While I waste my time,
in regretting that the days,
Went from perfect to just OK.

Lordy, what would I do?
don't call me possessive,
But God if he's smoochin' with you.

As a jealous boy root,
the world should be free,
But don't you go following suit
my heart is aligned
It couldn't be neutral,
I couldn't be that way inclined.

It's hard to defend, pa pa pa, pa pa pa,
These feelings my
tuppentup friend.
It's cruel,

pa pa pa, pa pa pa, pa pa pa, pa pa pa pa pa,
it's cruel,

pa pa pa, pa pa pa, pa pa pa, pa pa pa pa pa,
it's cruel,
it's crueler than cruel.

But cruel is the gospel that's sets us all free,
Then takes you away from me.

Should a love be tender,
and bleed out loud?
Or be tougher than tough,
and prouder than proud?

If I'm troubled by
every folding of your skirt,
Am I guilty of
every male inflicted hurt?
But I dont know how
to describe the modern rose,
When I cant refer
to her shape against her clothes.
With the fever of purple prose.

But cruel is the gospel that's sets us all free,
Then takes you away from me.
Cruel is the gospel that's sets us all free,
Then takes you away from me.
My contribution
to urban blues.
