io sono consapevole di essere stata generata da Questa Terra con semplicità con volontà

La ricordate?

L'altro giorno, quando stavo quasi per spegnere la radio e andare via, ho risentito questa canzone dopo anni che l'avevo dimenticata. "Da giovane" non avevo fatto troppo caso al testo.
Through the barricades
Mother doesn’t know where love has gone
She says it must be youth
That keeps us feeeling strong
See it in her face, that’s turned to ice
And when she smiles she shows The lines of sacrifice
And now I know what they’re saying
When the sun begins to fade
And we made our love on wasteland
And through the barricades

Father made my history
He fought for what he thought
Would set us somehow free
He tought me what to say in school
I learned off by heart
But now that’s torn in two
And now I know what they’re saying
In the music of the parade
We made our love on wasteland
And through the barricades
Born on different sides of life
We feel the same And feel all of this strife
So come to me when I’m asleep
We’ll cross the line And dance upon the street
And now I know what they’re saying When the drums begin to fade
We made our love on wasteland And through the barricades
Oh, turn around and I’ll be there
There’s a scar through my heart
But I’ll bare it again I thought? we were the human race
But we were just another border-line-case
And the stars reach down and tell us That there’s always one escape

I don’t know where love has gone
And in this trouble land Desperation keep us strong
Fridays child is full of soul With nothing left to lose
There’s everything to go
And now I know what they’re are saying It’s a terrible beauty we’ve made
So we make our love on wasteland And through the barricades
Now I know what they’re are saying As hearts go to their graves
We made our love on wasteland And through the barricades.

    "da giovani"eravamo troppo impegnate a pensare alla musica in quanto cantante, moda, vestito, ballo per poter badare anche al testo. e' bello che tu l'abbia sentita e riportato qui le parole...una rivalutazione a 20anni di distanza!!

    no, dai, 20 no! sono proprio venti?
    ma ricordate il cantante con quel ciuffo terribile?
    com'è che negli anni 80 facevano tendenza testi così impegnati? noi non eravamo i figli scemi delle lotte giovanili di fine anni 60?
    è bello anche l'accenno al sogno.

    Gli Spandau Ballet...gli anni ottanta...la prima vacanza in Inghilterra...quello col ciuffo si era nascosto in un angolo della mia memoria e ci aveva vissuto per oltre vent'anni...ma di che si sarà nutrito??

    i caldi di luglio e le parole sulle barricate l'hanno scongelato.
    ... o forse nel frattempo si è nutrito del ciuffo :-)
