KT Tunstall - Other Side Of The World


El primer tema del primer disco de la cantante escocesa KT Tunstall, Eye of the Telescope.

Bueno, esta canción solia escucharla en una de mis radios favoritas, y antes de interesarme totalmente, solía pensar: "Meh, es una canción bonita". Y como siempre me pasa, veo el video en la televisión y se me queda pegada.

Other Side Of The World trata sobre los amores a distancia, no tanto a esas relaciones que son tan comunes con eso de la internet, y que rara vez resultan, sino más a esos amores que por las circunstancias de la vida, ambas partes deben separarse. Está basada en una situación real que tuvieron unos amigos de KT.

Es una canción bastante relajada y amena, de esas que son ideales para una fogata, lo que no le quita lo bella.


Over the sea and far away
She's waiting like an iceberg
Waiting to change
But she's cold inside
She wants to be like the water

All the muscles tighten in her face
Buries her soul in one embrace
They're one and the same
Just like water

The fire fades away
Most of everyday
Is full of tired excuses
But it's too hard to say
I wish it were simple
But we give up easily
You're close enough to see that
You're the other side of the world to me

On comes the panic light
Holding on with fingers and feelings alike
But the time has come
To move along


The fire fades away
Most of everyday
Is full of tired excuses
But it's too hard to say
I wish it were simple
But we give up easily
You're close enough to see that
You're the other side of the world to me


Can you help me?
Can you let me go
And can you still love me
When you can't see me anymore


The fire fades away
Most of everyday
Is full of tired excuses
But it's too hard to say
I wish it were simple
But we give up easily
You're close enough to see that
You're the other side of the world to me

Robbie Williams - Feel


Escucho este tema y veo tranquilidad en todos lados.

Feel es el segundo tema y primer single de Escapology, el quinto disco en solitario del cantante británico Robbie Williams. Esta canción la recuerdo bastante por su línea melódica, que podría describirla como algo onírico y astral, perfectamente pausado y relajante, a la vez de profundo. El coro es una mezcla bien homogénea de voz y música, en algunas partes tildada por la agresividad.

Cada vez que escucho esta canción, me recuerda a un día nublado con débiles halos de luz filtrandose, mirando un paisaje llano y gris.





Come and hold my hand
I want to contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given

I sit and talk to God
And he just laughs at my plans
My head speaks a language
I don't understand

I just want to feel real love
Feel the home that I live in
Cause I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste

I don't want to die
But I ain't keen on living either
Before I fall in love
I'm preparing to leave her
I scare myself to death
That's why I keep on running
Before I've arrived
I can see myself coming

I just want to feel real love
Feel the home that I live in
Cause I got too much life
Running through my veins
Going to waste
And I need to feel real love
And a life ever after
I cannot give it up

I just want to feel feel love
Feel the home that I live in
I got too much love
Running through my veins
To go to waste

I just want to feel real love
In a life ever after
There's a hole in my soul
You can see it in my face
It's a real big place

Come and hold my hand
I want to contact the living
Not sure I understand
This role I've been given

Not sure I understand

Symphony X - Paradise Lost



Esta es una de esas canciones épicas que tienen un sentimiento tan grande que son capaces de emocionar y ya no puedes dejar de escuchar.

Paradise Lost es el quinto tema del álbum homónimo del grupo Symphony X, grandes dentro del Metal Progresivo, y combina ese aire de balada junto con un sonido metálico y agresivo, perfectamente complementados.

Esta canción posee uno de los coros melódicos más bellos que haya escuchado.



In the cold misty morning
gleaming rays awake the dawn
Here I stand - a stranger in this land
does your conscience betray you?
falling from grace, feel the sun on my face
does desire still hold true?

Mystified by her beauty 
does the hunter pity his prey?
Under starless skies all
Love must die and fade away

Take my hand divine or damned
Make a stand, seize the day
Yours or mine, damned of divine
Draw the line, come what may...

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye 
to Paradise

My yearning is silenced 
by angelic skin of white
Love conquers all for heaven's fall
this faithful night.

Yours or mine damned of divine
Draw the line  serpentine...
Love is a tragedy
all that I have, all that I'll ever need
is right here inside
Let the winds of freedom be my guide

Looking down from Ethereal Skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye 
to Paradise

Looking down from Ethereal Skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye 
to Paradise

Say goodbye, goodbye, hold on!

...so I've cheated and I've lied
been the victim of foolish pride
and I've begged and I've crawled
and I've battled and bled for it all
now I'll savor the downfall...of Paradise

Looking down from Ethereal Skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all will say their last goodbye
to Paradise

Keane - Somewhere Only We Know



El tema de apertura del disco Hopes And Fears. Somewhere Only We Know es una cancion sencilla, con un ritmo tranquilo y progresiones hermosas, fiel representante del Brit Pop taciturno.

Recuerdo que un vez la escuche, no recuerdo donde, y me quedo en la mente, solo que nunca supe su nombre. Debia tener unos 13 años cuando la escuche la primera vez. Y en la secundaria conoci a un amigo, que iba con su iPod a todos lados y me recomendo Keane. Tenia casi los mismos gustos musicales que yo, solo que yo estaba mas enfocado hacia Coldplay. Y bueno, me anime a escucharlos y... encontre la cancion que andaba buscando, y es la que les estoy mostrando ahora.

En sus letras habla sobre aquel lugar especial en el que te sientes a gusto. No es solamente un lugar fisico, puede ser un sentimiento, son palabras de Richard Hughes, baterista de la banda.

En fin, los dejo con esta bella melodia.




I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when, you're gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So, tell me when you gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything.
So why don't we go, somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know...


Oh, simple thing, where have you gone?
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
So, tell me when you gonna let me in
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don't we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything.
So why don't we go, so why don't we go?

This could be the end of everything.
So why don't we go, somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know.
