Serenate e coltelli

A lovestruck romeo sings a streetsus serenade
Laying everybody low with me a lovesong that he made
Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
Says something like you and me babe how about it? […]
And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be
All do is keep the beat and bad company
All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
Julie Id do the stars with you any time
Juliet when we made love you used to cry
You said I love you like the stars above Ill love you till I die
Theres a place for us you know the movie song
When you gonna realise it was just that the time was wrong juliet ?
 
Mark Knopfler, Dire Straits, Romeo and Juliet, 1980

Outside the street were steaming the crack dealers were dreaming of an Uzi someone had just scored
I betcha I could hit that light with my one good arm behind my back says little Joey Diaz
Brother give me another tote those downtown hoods are no damn good those Italians need a lesson to be taught
This cop who died in Harlem you think they’d get the warnin’
I was dancing when his brains run out on the street
And Romeo had Juliette and Juliette had her Romeo
And Romeo had Juliette and Juliette had her Romeo

Lou Reed, Romeo had Juliette, 1989

    Splendide.

    Wake from your sleep,
    the drying of your tears,
    Today we escape, we escape.

    Pack and get dressed
    before your father hears us,
    before all hell breaks loose.

    Breathe, keep breathing,
    don’t lose your nerve.
    Breathe, keep breathing,
    I can’t do this alone.

    Sing us a song,
    a song to keep us warm,
    there’s such a chill, such a chill.

    And you can laugh a spineless laugh,
    we hope your rules and wisdom choke you.

    And now we are one
    in everlasting peace,

    we hope that you choke.

    Radiohead, Exit Music (for a film), inspired by Act III

    Ogni volta che ascolto “Romeo and Juliet” nella mia memoria si affacciano tanti momenti, tante emozioni e una persona in particolare..anche se è davvero lontana il suo ricordo non mi lascia mai..Forse è qualcosa di più di una semplice canzone..^_^
