Musical Monday: Holes To Heaven

Stamattina condivido con voi una di quelle perle che mi hanno dato la carica tante volte: Holes to Heaven di Jack Johnson. Ormai ho perso il conto di quante volte questa canzone mi abbia dato il buongiorno, in riproduzione con le casse sciagurate dell'iPhone, mentre mi ricopro di larghi maglioni e saltello su me stessa per entrare nei jeans, prima di andare a scuola.
Inutile dirlo, mi mette sempre di buon umore.

Ah, e chiedo venia per il video un po' "approssimativo", ma come si dice in terra toscana, "o questo o chiodi!".



The air was more than human and
The heat was more than hungry and
The cars were square and spitting diesel fumes


The bulls were running wild
Because they're big and mean and sacred and
The children were playing cricket with no shoes


The next morning we woke up, man
With a seven hour drive
There we were stuck in Port Blaire
Where boats break and children stare
There were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to Heaven

And there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to Heaven


Disembarking from the port
With no mistakes of any sort
Moving south the engine running smooth


Officials were quite friendly
Once we drowned them with our sweet talk
We bribed them with our cigarettes and booze


The next morning we woke up
With the sunrise to the right
Moving back north to Port Blaire
Where boats break and children stare


There were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to Heaven
Yes and there were so many fewer questions
When stars were still just the holes to Heaven

Eh sì, perché è proprio vero che c'erano molte meno domande quando le stelle erano solo "porte per il paradiso".
La canzone racconta di due (?) ragazzi, che, stanchi dell'atmosfera stressante e sovraffollata delle grandi città, fuggono lontano, in campagna, dove i bambini giocano a cricket senza scarpe e i tori corrono selvaggi.
E sai che? Quasi quasi arrivano a dire che si stava molto meglio quando la vita era molto più semplice.

Love it.
