Pet Shop Boys & D. Springfield - What Have I Done to Deserve This?

¿Que he hecho yo para merecer esto?

No me refería a nada en concreto, simple y llanamente es la traducción del título del tema que hoy nos acompaña. Es una frase hecha en Inglés que traducida tiene el mismo significado que la expuesta arriba. Y sin apuntaros al Home English teneis aquí una clase gratis de Inglés.

Hace mucho que no ponía a los chicos de la tienda de mascotas. Cierto es que han hecho cosas muy interesantes. PAra mi, de lo mejor fue este trabajo de los ochenta. esta incluido en su álbum Actually. Lo recordareis por que la portada tenía un fondo blanco y aparecían Cris mirando al frente serio y Neil bostezando. Me recuerdo mirando la portada del Vinilo, en el escaparate de una tienda cercana a casa (cuando aun exisitian las tiendas de discos en mi ciudad), y provocandome el bostezo...y es que si lo mirabas fijamente, te lo contagiaba. Tonterias a parte, este disco contenía temas como Rent, It´s a Sin, Heart o One more Chance entre otros.

Este tema lo cantan con la inestimable ayuda de la gran Dusty Sprinfield, más maryorcita que cuando cantaba aquella Son of a Preacher Man, pero igual de elegante. Esta canción le sirvió para resucitar su carrera.

Pues nada, a disfrutar del fin de semana que iba tocando...sed buenos y sedme fieles...



"You always wanted a lover
I only wanted a job
I've always worked for my living
How am I gonna get through?
How am I gonna get through?

I come here looking for money
(Got to have it)
And end up living with love, oh, oh
Now you left me with nothing
(Can't take it)
How am I gonna get through?
How am I gonna get through?

I bought you drinks, I brought you flowers
I read you books and talked for hours
Every day, so many drinks
Such pretty flowers, so tell me
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I ...

Since you went away I've been hanging around
I've been wondering why I'm feeling down
You went away, it should make me feel better
But I don't know, oh
How I'm gonna get through?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

You always wanted me to be something I wasn't
You always wanted too much, oh, oh
Now I can do what I want to - forever
How am I gonna get through?
How am I gonna get through?

At night, the people come and go
They talk too fast, and walk too slow
Chasing time from hour to hour
I pour the drinks and crush the flowers
What have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
What have I, what have I, what have I ...

Since you went away I've been hanging around
I've been wondering why I'm feeling down
You went away, it should make me feel better
But I don't know, oh
How I'm gonna get through? (baby)
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through? (baby)
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through? (baby)
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through? (tell me)
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through? (baby)
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
How I'm gonna get through? (yeah)
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

Gonna get through?
Gonna get through?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
I'm gonna get through, right?
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

We don't have to fall apart, we don't have to fight
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
We don't need to go to hell and back every night
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
You never ever left me, baby, think of me...
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Oh, babe
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

We don't have to fall apart, we don't have to fight
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
We don't need to go to hell and back every night
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?

Gonna get through, baby, I'm gonna get
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Forever
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Gonna get through, baby, yeah,
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?
Gonna get through, get through, baby, ooh
What have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?"

Yo este disco lo tengo en cinta jejje. Un tema que me gusta de este disco es King's Cross que es la famosa estación londinense y I want to wake up. Escuche la cinta lo menos mil veces y aún hoy la pongo jejje.

Actually es un buen disco, pero para mi ninguno se puede comparar al Behaviour.

Un saludo
