Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet

Si ayer me puse calentón..hoy romanticón.

Siempre digo que esta banda son apuesta segura. ¿A quién no le gustan estas melodias, estos guitarreos y estas letras? Una de las mejores bandas de los ochenta con uno de los mejores guitarristas de la historia. ¿Se puede pedir más?. Estos temas de los primeros discos me encantan sobre todo por esa duración de los temas, sin complejos, sin cortapisas de la discografica, eso de hazme un single de 4 minutos máximo. Lo de hoy poesia pura. Actualización letrisitca de esta historia de amor universal.

deleitaros estos diez minutos de gloria...



"a lovestruck romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
says something like you and me babe how about it?

juliet says hey it's romeo you nearly gimme a heart attack
he's underneath the window she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back
you shoudn't come around here singing up at people like that
anyway what you gonna do about it?

juliet the dice were loaded from the start
and i bet and you exploded in my heart
and i forget i forget the movie song
when you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong juliet?

come up on different streets they both were streets of shame
both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same
and i dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real
how can you look at me as i was just another one of your deals?

when you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold
you can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold
you promised me everything you promised me thick and thin
now you just say oh romeo yeah you know i used to have a scene with him

juliet when we made love you used to cry
you said i love you like the stars above i'll love you till i die
there's a place for us you know the movie song
when you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

i can't do the talk like they talking on the tv
and i can't do a love song like the way its meant to be
i can't do everything but i'd do anything for you
i can't do anything except be in love with you

and all i do is miss you and the way we used to be
all i do is keep the beat and bad company
all i do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme
julie i'd 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 i'll love you till i die
there's a place for us you know the movie song
when you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

a lovestruck romeo sings a streetsuss serenade
laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made
finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade
says something like you and me babe how about it?"

Hace poco escuché a un tipo que los Dire Straits eran aburridos. No sé, hay gente tan rara. Saludos.

Me encanta esta canción, una de mis favoritas de siempre! Qué grandes Dire Straits y de aburridos nada >_>
Despiertan muchas emociones y esa no es una de ellas.
