YOUNG AMERICANS: EXPERIMENT IV

Kann ein Blog Pyjama-Parties feiern? Gibt es virtuelle Lagerfeuer? Riechen Sie den Duft angeschwärzter Marshmellows?
Ich freue mich so sehr, dass der Deutsch/Englisch-Übersetzer der DARPA endlich mal einen vernünftigen Code zu dechiffrieren hat: Sex-songs that kill! Parallel dazu die Stifung einer potenten Allianz.

Um der ELA-Page eine frische Morgendusche zu gönnen, ein Aufruf:

BRING THAT ONE SONG ON THAT CAN MAKE YOU BREAK DOWN AND CRY….

Das traurigste Liebeslied ist gesucht. Titel, Interpret und schönste Textzeile. Ich freu mich!

    phil collins ist zwar überhaupt nicht mehr mein musikstil, aber das hier ist definitiv das traurigste liebeslied aller zeiten für mich:

    Throwing It All Away
    (Genesis)

    Need I say I love you?
    Need I say I care?
    Need I say that emotions are something we don’t share?
    I don’t want to be sitting here trying to deceive you
    Cos you know I know baby
    I don’t wanna go.
    We cannot live together
    We cannot live apart
    That’s the situation
    I’ve known it from the start
    Every time that I look at you I can see the future
    Cos you know I know baby
    I don’t wanna go.

    Throwing it all away
    Throwing it all away
    Is there nothing that I can say
    To make you change your mind
    I watch the world go round and round
    And see mine turning upside down
    You’re throwing it all away.

    Who’ll light up the darkness
    Who will hold your hand
    Who will find you the answers
    When you don’t understand
    Why should I have to be the one who has to convince you
    Cos you know I know baby
    That I don’t wanna go.

    Some day you’ll be sorry
    Someday when you’re free
    Memories will remind you
    That our love was meant to be
    Late at night when you call my name the only sound you’ll hear
    Is the sound of your voice calling
    Calling after me.

    Just throwing it all away
    Throwing it all away
    There’s nothing I can say
    You’re throwing it all away.

    Also ich meine, dass es traurige Liebeslieder gar nicht gibt, schon gar nicht “das traurigste”. Ein Liebeslied hat immer Hoffnung, irgendwo, wenn auch versteckt. Sonst würde es keine Sau hören, was sage ich, nicht mal eine(r) darbieten. Traurig scheint eher der Initiator zu sein. Irgenwie tragisch, dass die meisten Liebe immer mit Trauer verquicken. Mensch Kindas, det muss doch nich sein!!!

    Das ist schön, dass du nicht traurig bist. Schnell gewinne ich hier nämlich ‘nen anderen Eindruck. Frage das nächste Mal doch nach dem Song, der am besten aus einem Tief holt. Das wirkt dann nicht so schwarz/weiß. ;-)

    *lol* Irgendwie assoziiere ich hier eher “Black & White” von – nein – nicht Jacko, sondern “Patto”, einer sog. Formation, die zu einem Teil aus dem Sohn von Blacky Fuchsberger besteht/bestand. Allein dies birgt Qualität. Ganz “toll” und verrry 80ies! ;-} Bei den Elefanten ist die Farbe doch egal. Allein das Gedächtnis zählt!

    If you want drama, honey, you came to the right place:

    ich reiße mich gradezu übermenschlich zusammen, und fange mit nur EINEM Track aus meiner umfangreichen Liste sorfältig zusammengestellter Jetzt-geb-ichs-mir-richtig-Musik an.
    Ich eröffne mit dem Boy George Project “Jesus Loves You” und dem Track “I Specialise In Loneliness”:
    When I first met you

    you had scars much deeper than my own

    I know I was weak

    but I feel like I have grown

    in the back of my mind

    I know whats wrong I know whats right
and if you decide to leave

    I won’t put up a fight


    I specialise in loneliness

    In loneliness I specialise

    I specialise in loneliness

    In loneliness I specialise

    Konsequenz widerum war bei mir noch nie ein oft gesehener Gast, also mach ich gleich weiter mit Depeche Mode vom “Violator” Album und I´ll be “Waiting for the night”:
    I’m waiting for the night to fall
    I know that it will save us all
    When everything’s dark
    Keeps us from the stark reality
    I’m waiting for the night to fall
    When everything is bearable
    And there in the still
    All that you feel
    Is tranquillity…

    times tide will smother you
    when you laugh about people
    who feel so very lonely
    their only desire is to die
    well i´m afraid
    it doens´t make me smile
    i wish i could laugh
    but that joke isn´t funny anymore
    it´s too close to home
    and it´s too near the bone

    here comes mine:
    Wild ist he wind
    (sung by nina simone, NOT bowie:)

    love me love me love me
    say you do
    let me fly away with with you
    for my love is like the wind
    and wild is the wind.

    give me more than one caress
    satisfy this hungriness
    let the wind blow through your heart
    for wild is the wind

    you touch me
    I hear the sound of mandolins
    you kiss me
    with your kiss my life begins
    you’re spring to me
    all things to me

    hmh – don’t you know you’re love itself?

    like a leaf clings to a tree
    oh my darling, cling to me
    for we’re creatures of the wind
    and wild is the wind
    so wild is the wind

    you touch me
    I hear the sound of mandolins
    you kiss me
    and with your kiss my life begins
    daddy, you’re spring to me
    all things to me
    don’t you know you’re life itself?

    like a leaf clings to a tree
    oh my darling, cling to me
    for we’re creatures of the wind
    and wild is the wind
    so wild is the wind
    wild is the wind
    wild is the wind….

    so wie Nina es singt und spielt, bin ich spätestens bei der zweiten strophe völlig nass…

    Nicht das Lied, bei dem ich am meisten geweint habe, sondern in all seiner Traurigkeit und Einsamkeit doch irgendwie tröstlich fand ich stets

    And I know it’s over – still I cling
    I don’t know where else I can go
    Over, over, it’s over, it’s over
    It’s over
    I know it’s over
    And it never really began
    But in my heart it was so real
    And you even spoke to me, and said:
    If you’re so funny
    Then why are you on your own tonight?
    And if you’re so clever
    Then why are you on your own tonight?
    If you’re so very entertaining
    Then why are you on your own tonight?
    If you’re so very good looking
    Why do you sleep alone tonight?
    I know …
    ’cause tonight – it’s just like any other night
    That’s why you’re on your own tonight
    Your triumphs and your charms
    While they’re in each other’s arms…
    It’s so easy to laugh
    It’s so easy to hate
    It takes strength to be gentle and kind
    Over, over, over, over
    It’s so easy to laugh
    It’s so easy to hate
    It takes guts to be gentle and kind
    Over, over
    Love is natural and real
    But not for you, my love
    Not tonight, my love
    Love is natural and real
    But not for such as you and I, my love

    ich bin so versucht, jetzt sofort die smiths zu hören, aber ich trau mich heut nicht an so viel traurigkeit heran.

    show me a smile
    and
    don´t be unhappy
    can´t remember when
    i last saw you laughing

    if this world makes you crazy
    and you´ve taken all you can bare
    you call me up
    because you know i´ll be there
    and i see your true colors shining through
    i see yur true colors and that´s why i love you
    so don´t be afraid to let them show
    your true colors
    true colors
    are beautiful
    like a rainbow

    You didn’t kiss me how can I fall asleep?

    I know you’re there, but don’t pick up cause I’ll say everything
    I know you don’t care, you made that clear enough as I was leaving
    I took your favorite overcoat, just wanted to return it
    I know it’s late, you’re probably out, that’s what you wanted anyway
    I know how you hate it when I get too loud, but John you know I’m crazy
    I’m wrapped around your favorite overcoat, don’t think I can return it

    You didn’t kiss me
    How can I fall asleep?
    You didn’t wish me very well
    To say the least
    Do you miss me?
    If you said so should I believe you?
    You didn’t kiss me..

    Hate your laugh, hate your lies, hate the chance I took on you
    Hate the past in your eyes, hate the war you put me through
    Hate myself for believing this could come to anything at all

    als ich die live-fassung hörte kam ich aus schluchzkrämpfen nicht mehr raus, das geht mir sonst nur so bei “don´t give up”.

    In this proud land we grew up strong
    We were wanted all along
    I was taught to fight, taught to win
    I never thought I could fail

    No fight left or so it seems
    I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
    I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name
    But no-one wants you when you lose

    Don’t give up
    ‘Cause you have friends
    Don’t give up
    You’re not beaten yet
    Don’t give up
    I know you can make it good

    Though I saw it all around
    Never thought that I could be affected
    Thought that we’d be last to go
    It is so strange the way things turn

    Drove the night toward my home
    The place that I was born, on the lakeside
    As daylight broke, I saw the earth
    The trees had burned down to the ground

    Don’t give up
    You still have us
    Don’t give up
    We don’t need much of anything
    Don’t give up
    ‘Cause somewhere there’s a place
    Where we belong

    Rest your head
    You worry too much
    It’s going to be alright
    When times get rough
    You can fall back on us
    Don’t give up
    Please don’t give up

    Got to walk out of here
    I can’t take any more
    Going to stand on that bridge
    Keep my eyes down below
    Whatever may come
    And whatever may go
    That river’s flowing
    That river’s flowing

    Moved on to another town
    Tried hard to settle down
    For every job, so many men
    So many men no-one needs

    Don’t give up
    ‘Cause you have friends
    Don’t give up
    You’re not the only one
    Don’t give up
    No reason to be ashamed
    Don’t give up
    You still have us

    Don’t give up now
    We’re proud of who you are
    Don’t give up
    You know its never been easy
    Don’t give up
    ‘Cause I believe there’s a place
    There’s a place where we belong

    In Kombination mit der Melodie dürfte auch dieses Lied von Karusssell seine Wirkung nicht verfehlt und Tausende seinerzeit zum Weinen gebracht haben:

    Nichts ist unendlich
    So sieh das doch ein
    Ich weiß, Du willst unendlich sein
    Schwach und klein
    Nichts ist von Dauer
    Was keiner recht will
    Auch die Trauer wird da sein
    Schwach und klein

    I know you have a little life in you yet
    I know you have a lot of strength left
    I should be crying but I just can´t let it show
    I should be hoping, but I cant stop thinking

    Of all the things I shouldve said,
    That I never said.
    All the things we shouldve done,
    That we never did.
    All the things I shouldve given,
    But I didnt.

    Oh, darling, make it go,
    Make it go away.

    Give me these moments back.
    Give them back to me.
    Give me that little kiss.
    Give me your hand.

    I thought we were supposed to be like glue,

    Love or not, I’ve always got ten guys on whom I can depend.
    And if you’re not mine, one less is nine, get wise,

    I wanted you tonight.
    I walked around a lot.
    Wishing you were here to keep me from sleeping
    With anyone who might want me or even not.

    “Close Watch” von John Cale.

    »
    never win and never lose
    there’s nothing much to choose
    between the right and wrong

    nothing lost and nothing gained
    still things are quite the same
    between you and me

    i keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    i keep a close watch on this heart of mine

    i still hear your voice at night
    when i turn out the light
    and try to settle down

    but there’s nothing i can do
    ’cause i can’t live without you
    anyway at all

    i keep a close watch on this heart of mine

    Sende ich Dir bei Interesse gerne zu.
    Es gibt davon zwei exterm unterschiedliche Versionen: die ursprüngliche ist so BBC-Nachtexpreß-Pop mit Streichorchester und allem (auf der LP “Helen Of Troy”), und dann eine Dead-End-Alkohol-Hardcore-Fassung auf “Songs For A New Society”, nur Klavier und Cale, um seine Fassung ringend (sic). (und von mir gibt’s ne Discoversion ;) )
