Crisis?, What Crisis?; Super Crotto, Logical Song.

I saw the fog grow thick,
Which soon made blind my ken;
It made tall men of boys,
And giants of all men.
It clutched my throat, I coughed;
Nothing was in my head
Except two heavy eyes
Like balls of burning lead.
And when it grew so black
That I could know no place,
I lost all judgement then,
Of distance and of space.
The street lamps, and the lights
Upon the halted cars,
Could either be on earth
Or be the heavenly stars.
A man passed by me close,
I asked my way; he said
`Come follow me, my friend` -
I followed where he led.
He rapped the stones in front,
`Trust me,` he said, `and come` -
I followed like a child -
A blind man led me home.


“Manolo, ¿Por qué rompes tanto las pelotas diferenciando Posición con Situación?”; es una pregunta que se ha vuelto habitual en estos días de euforia.

El poema del Gales que fue un delincuente juvenil, un peón golondrina, y un discapacitado; en pleno auge del Progreso Infinito e Ilimitado de la era Victoriana; es una aproximación a los tiempos que nos tocara vivir.

“The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp”; hacer clic aquí; promocionado (bah, manijeado) por el Fabiano Bernard Shaw, fue la inspiración para que un grupo de rock progresivo de los 70’ titulara su banda.

Un Tramp es un Crotto, un Atorrante, un peón golondrina, un “Vaga Mundo”; que por necesidad de supervivencia, aunque exista la voluntad explorar, va de pueblo en pueblo, de localidad en localidad, realizando trabajos ocasionales.

La Banda en si, fue famosa en sus tiempos, por mezclar melodías “bailables” (comerciales) con letras absolutamente irreverentes.

“Logical Song”, aun 30 años mas tarde, sigue siendo el himno de lo “políticamente incorrecto”

There are times when all the world's asleep,

the questions run too deep

for such a simple man.

Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned

I know it sounds absurd

but please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,

liberal, fanatical, criminal.

Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're

acceptable, respecable, presentable, a vegtable!

En fin, para el video de la canción, subtitulada, hacer clic aquí.

Si, ya se que Logical Song no es del álbum “Crisis?, What Crisis?”, sino de “Breakfast in America”, solo me tome una licencia poética. ;-P

Desde el rock, debo discrepar Manolo. Supertramp fue una trampa.

En los 70's las letras del riock inglés eran inteligentes, punzantes, subversivas. Y la música imaginativa, compleja, progresiva.

Supertramp es uno de los primeros que mostraron un chingüí-chingüi presentable. De allí a los vendidos de Queen, y de ahí bajando. Las letras vistosas - no me va a decir que cantar "cínico, práctico, lógico,..." es realmente una posición - fueron la coartada de la gansada que arrasó a continuación.

Supertramp fue, digamos, el puente entre dos generaciones. Atraversarlo es caer pensando que flotamos.

Un saludo, poné algo de Jethro
