100 лучших рок-текстов классического рока 1 июля 2009, 22:29

На этом форуме есть несколько тем, посвященных англоязычной рок-поэзии.
Из которых можно узнать, что:
1) для многих тексты - во всяком случае англоязычных групп - не имеют значения
2) многие не различают поэзию для чтения ("стихи") и поэзию для пения ("тексты"), тем не менее,
3) многие здесь достаточно хорошо ориентируются именно в рок-поэзии и готовы аргументировать свои пристрастия текстами любимых авторов.

Однако эти ветки не дают ответа как минимум на один важный вопрос:
- В чем особенности гениального рок-текста и чем он отличается от гениального стихотворения "для бумаги"?
И отличается ли?

Какой-то ответ могла бы дать антология лучших рок-текстов.

Думаю, что многие сказали бы за нее спасибо.

Итак просьба - размещать в этой ветке от 1 до 3 текстов, которые вы считаете настоящими шедеврами.
Длинных списков не надо. 
Просто тексты (и, разумеется - автор, группа, альбом, год).

(У меня, конечно, есть свои любимые, но пока скромно помолчу, послушаю, что скажут другие))))

Sofa #2
I am the heaven
I am the water
I am the dirt beneath your rollers
I am your secret smut & lost metal money
Down your cracks

I am your cracks & crannies

I am the clouds
I am embroidered
A am the author of all tucks & damask piping
I am the chrome dinette
I am the chrome dinette
I am the eggs of all persuasion
I am all days & nights
I am all days & nights
I am all days & nights
I am all days & nights
I am here
And you are my sofa
I am here
And you are my sofa
I am here
And you are my sofa

Frank Zappa, естественно. Версий - несколько, потому альбом не указан? любимая - где текст частично на немецком.

Iron Maiden - Killers (Killers, 1981)

You walk through the subway; his eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you; he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy - he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you; his blood lust defies all his needs...

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night
I have no one; I'm bound to destroy all this greed
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me...
-- A-ha-ha-ha!

I can see what a knife's meant to be
And you'll never know how I came to forsee, see, see

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties
With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike
The death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night
Another tomorrow - remember to walk in the light!

I have found you and now there is no place to run
Excitement shakes me, oh God, help me - what have I done?!
Oh yeah, I've done it! Yeah!!!

You walk through the subway; my eyes burn a hole in your back
A footstep behind you; he lunges prepared for attack
Scream for mercy - he laughs as he's watching you bleed
Killer behind you; my blood lust defies all my needs
Oh, look out, I'm coming for you! A-ha-ha-ha!

Black Sabbath - War Pigs (Paranoid, 1970)

Generals gathered in their masses
just like witches at black masses
evil minds that plot destruction
sorcerers of death's construction
in the fields the bodies burning as the war machine keeps turning
death and hatred to mankind
poisoning their brainwashed minds... Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
they only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor

Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgment day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning
ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of god has struck the hour
Day of judgment, god is calling on their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings

Saxon - Denim & Leather (Denim & Leather, 1981)

Where were you in '79 when the dam began to burst
Did you check us out down at the local show
Were you wearing denim, wearing leather
Did you run down to the front
Did you queue for your ticket through the ice and snow

Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free
Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free

Did you read the music paper from the back and to the front
Did you find out where to see your favorite band
Did you listen to the radio every Friday night
Did hang around your local record store

Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free
Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free

Do you dream of playing guitar or smashing up the drums
Maybe you can learn to play the bass
You can always be a singer like me and front the band
When on the stage we wait at your command

Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free
Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free

It was you - that set the spirit free
It was you - that put us here today
It was you - that filled the concert halls
It was you - that set the spirit free

Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free
Denim and Leather
Brought us all together
It was you that set the spirit free

РОБЕРТ ПЛАНТ

Stairway To Heaven


There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who standing looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

(Page/Plant, Led Zeppelin IV, 1971)

Этот текст бузусловно шикарный и именно роковый. Вот именно такие тексты выделяют рок от других жанров. Группа в представлении не нуждается, как не нужен и перевод текста:

Women

In the beginning God made the land
Then He made the water and creatures, then He made man
He was born with a passion, love and hate
A restless spirit with a need for a mate
But there was something that was missing, something lost
So he came with the answer, here's what it cost
One part love, one part wild
One part lady, one part child

I give you
Women, women, lots of pretty women
Men, men, they can't live without them
Women, women, lots of pretty women
Men, men, they can't live without them

And in the garden, lust began
The animal instinct, the wanton man
She fed him with a hunger, an appetite
And fillin' with emotion he took a bite
It was one part love, one part child
One part devil, one part wild

I give you
Women, women, lots of pretty women
Men, men, they can't live without them
Women, women, lots of pretty women
Men, men, they can't live without them

Skin on skin, let the love begin
Women

It was one part love, one part wild
One part lover, one part child
A whole lotta fire, a little bit of ice
A whole lotta something you can't sacrifice

I give you
Hair, eyes, skin on skin
Legs, thighs
What's that spell

Women, women, oh, oh
Women, women, callin' every girl
Women, women, all around the world
Women, women, oh we can't live without them
Women, women

Авторство - Clark/Collen/Elliott/Lange/Savage.

Джон Леннон

Strawberry Fields Forever

Let me take you down, cause I'm going to
Strawberry fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry fields forever

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see
Its getting hard to be someone, but it all works out
It doesnt matter much to me

Let me take you down, cause Im going to
Strawberry fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry fields forever

No one, I think, is in my tree
I mean, it must be high or low
That is, you cant, you know, tune in, but its alright
That is, I think its not too bad

Let me take you down, cause Im going to
Strawberry fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry fields forever

Always, no, sometimes, think its me
But, you know, I know when its a dream
I think, er, no, I mean, er, yes, but its all wrong
That is, I think I disagree

Let me take you down, cause Im going to
Strawberry fields
Nothing is real
And nothing to get hung about
Strawberry fields forever
Strawberry fields forever
Strawberry fields forever

1966

Тема энтузиазма пока не вызвала? Жаль. В конце-концов рок-музыка перестала быть попсой, когда начала ставить перед собой несвойственные попсе художественные задачи и писать о несвойственных попсе темах. А для этого нужно было и в музыке, и в текстах делать что-то новое, что-то другое...

Ладно, пока - в пределах названного лимита - три текста. Потом видно будет )))


 

Джим Моррисон

Crystal Ship


Before you slip into unconsciousness
I'd like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss
Another kiss

The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We'll meet again
We'll meet again

Oh tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You'd rather cry
I'd rather fly

The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back
I'll drop a line

Мик Джаггер

You can't always get what you want


I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection,
At her feet was her foot-loose man.

And you can't always get what you want,
Honey, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime, yeah,
You just might find you get what you need!

We went down to the demonstration to get our fair share of abuse,
Singing, "We gonna vent our frustration"
If we don't we'll blow a fifty amp fuse
So, I went to the Chelsea Drugstore to get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with my friend, Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda,
My fav'rite flavor was cherry red
I sing this song to my friend, Jimmy,
And he said one word to me and that was "dead"

And you can't always get what you want, honey
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime, yeah,
You just might find you get what you need!

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practised at the art of deception,
I could tell by her blood-stained hands

And you can't always get what you want, honey
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometime, yeah,
You just might find you get what you need!

And you can' always get what you want, honey,
You can't always get what you want,
You cant always get what you want,
But if you try sometime, yeah,
You just might find you get what you need!

Queen - "Who Wants To Live Forever" ("A Kind Of Magic", 1986 г.).

There's no time for us,
There's no place for us,
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us.

Who wants to live forever,
Who wants to live forever?

There's no chance for us,
It's all decided for us,
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us.

Who wants to live forever,
Who wants to live forever,
Who dares to love forever,
When love must die.

But touch my tears with your lips,
Touch my world with your fingertips,
And we can have forever,
And we can love forever,
Forever is our today

Who wants to live forever,
Who wants to live forever,
Forever is our today

Who waits forever anyway?

Bad Moon Rising

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.
All right!

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.


(С.С.R - Green River, 1969)


Dream Song

Would you like to sail the sea,
like a pirate, wild and free?
Cast your whole life upon the wind,
well it's your song, and it's your dream.

Would you like, to turn the page;
Fight the dragon, or find your maid,
Makin' merry at the village green,
well it's your song, and it's your dream.

Would you like to lead the band,
hittin' that old time sweet Dixieland,
And that side show go marchin' on,
well it's your song, and it's your dream.

Would you like to be a song,
like a river just rolls along,
Teach the whole world how to sing,
well it's your song, and it's your dream.

It's your song, and it's your dream.

(JOHN FOGERTY, 1975)

DONOVAN "Sand And Foam"

The sun was going down behind a tattooed tree
And the simple act of an oar's stroke put diamonds in the sea
And all because of the phosphorus there in quantity
As I dug you diggin' me in Mexico.
There in the valley of Scorpio, beneath the cross of jade
Smoking on the seashell pipe the gypsies had made
We sat and we dreamed a while of smugglers bringing wine
In that crystal thought time in Mexico.
Sitting in a chair of bamboo, sipping grenadine,
Straining my eyes for a surfacing submarine.
Kingdoms of ants walk across my feet,
I'm a-shakin' in my seat in Mexico.
Grasshoppers creaking in the velvet jungle night,
Microscopic circles in the fluid of my sight,
Watching a black-eyed native girl cut and trim the lamp,
Valentino vamp in Mexico.
The sun was going down behind a tattooed tree
And the simple act of an oar's stroke put diamonds in the sea
And all because of the phosphorus there in quantity
I dug you diggin' me in Mexico.

Peter Gabriel

Dancing with the Moonlit Knight


"Can you tell me where my country lies?"
said the unifaun to his true love's eyes.
"It lies with me!" cried the Queen of Maybe
- for her merchandise, he traded in his prize.

"Paper late!" cried a voice in the crowd.
"Old man dies!" The note he left was signed 'Old Father Thames'
- it seems he's drowned;
selling england by the pound.

Citizens of Hope & Glory,
Time goes by - it's the 'time of your life'.
Easy now, sit you down.
Chewing through your Wimpey dreams,
they eat without a sound;
digesting england by the pound.

Young man says 'you are what you eat' - eat well.
Old man says 'you are what you wear' - wear well.
You know what you are, you don't give a damn;
bursting your belt that is your homemade sham.

The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance ....
Follow on! Till the Grail sun sets in the mould.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.

There's a fat old lady outside the saloon;
laying out the credit she plays Fortune.
The deck is uneven right from the start;
all of their hands are playing apart.

The Captain leads his dance right on through the night
- join the dance ....
Follow on! A Round Table-talking down we go.
You're the show!
Off we go with: - You play the hobbyhorse,
I'll play the fool.
We'll tease the bull
ringing round & loud, loud & round.
Follow on! With a twist of the world we go.
Follow on! Till the gold is cold.
Dancing out with the moonlit knight,
Knights of the Green Shield stamp and shout.

Genesis - Selling England by the Pound, 1973

Ну и мои три копейки: обалденно мне нравится не только в музыкальном, но и в текстовом плане следующие весчи:

Beatles, т.н. White album:
"While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (Величайший мистер Харрисон)

I look at you all
See the love that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps.
I look at the floor
And I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps.

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you.

I look at the world
And I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps.
With every mistake
We must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps.

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too.
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.

I look at you all
See the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps.
Looked at you all...

Still my guitar gently weeps!

И ещё:
не менее великолепный Tom Petty  и его "Into the Great Wide Open":

Eddie waited till he finished high school
He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
The future was wide open.

They moved into a place they both could afford
He found a nightclub he could work at the door
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
The sky was the limit.

Into the great wide open,   
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open,
A rebel without a clue.


I think The papers said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the charts
The sky was the limit.

His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled.
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single."
The future was wide open.

Into the great wide open,
Under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open,
A rebel without a clue.

Van MORRISON - "Madame George"

Down on cyprus avenue
With a childlike vision leaping into view
Clicking, clacking of the high heeled shoe
Ford & fitzroy, madame george
Marching with the soldier boy behind
He's much older with hat on drinking wine
And that smell of sweet perfume comes drifting through
The cool night air like shalimar
And outside they're making all the stops
The kids out in the street collecting bottle-tops
Gone for cigarettes and matches in the shops
Happy taken madame george
That's when you fall
Whoa, that's when you fall
Yeah, that's when you fall
When you fall into a trance
A sitting on a sofa playing games of chance
With your folded arms and history books you glance
Into the eyes of madame george
j17c659k419322!cc6s
And you think you found the bag
You're getting weaker and your knees begin to sag
In the corner playing dominoes in drag
The one and only madame george
And then from outside the frosty window raps
She jumps up and says lord have mercy i think it's the cops
And immediately drops everything she gots
Down into the street below
And you know you gotta go
On that train from dublin up to sandy row
Throwing pennies at the bridges down below
And the rain, hail, sleet, and snow
Say goodbye to madame george
Dry your eye for madame george
Wonder why for madame george
And as you leave, the room is filled with music, laughing, music,
Dancing, music all around the room
And all the little boys come around, walking away from it all
So cold
And as you're about to leave
She jumps up and says hey love, you forgot your gloves
And the gloves to love to love the gloves
To say goodbye to madame george
Dry your eye for madame george
Wonder why for madame george
Dry your eyes for madame george
Say goodbye in the wind and the rain on the back street
In the backstreet, in the back street
Say goodbye to madame george
In the backstreet, in the back street, in the back street
Down home, down home in the back street
Gotta go
Say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Dry your eye your eye your eye your eye your eye
Say goodbye to madame george
And the loves to love to love the love
Say goodbye
Oooooo
Mmmmmmm
Say goodbye goodbye goodbye goodbye to madame george
Dry your eye for madame george
Wonder why for madame george
The love's to love the love's to love the love's to love
Say goodbye, goodbye
Get on the train
Get on the train, the train, the train
This is the train, this is the train
Whoa, say goodbye, goodbye.
Get on the train, get on the train
Invizible Man

Queen - "These Are The Days Of Our Live" ("Innuendo", 1991 г.).

Sometimes I get the feelin'
I was back in the old days - long ago
When we were kids when we were young
Things seemed so perfect - you know
The days were endless we were crazy we were young
The sun was always shinin' - we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
The rest of my life's been just a show

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you

You can't turn back the clock you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame
I'd like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin' on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
Better sit back and go with the flow

Cos these are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find no change

Those were the days of our lives - yeah
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing's still true
When I look and I find
I still love you

I still love you

Текст Криса Уайта из альбома Odessey & Oracle английской группы the Zombies

CHRIS WHITE

Butchers Tale (Western Front 1914)

A butcher yes that was my trade
But the king's shilling is now my fee
A butcher I may as well have stayed
For the slaughter that I see

And the preacher in his pulpit
Sermon: "Go and fight, do what is right"
But he don't have to hear these guns
And I'll bet he sleeps at night

And I
And I can't stop shaking
My hands won't stop shaking
My arms won't stop shaking
My mind won't stop shaking
I want to go home
Please let me go home
Go home

And I have seen a friend of mine
Hang on the wire
Like some rag toy
Then in the heat the flies come down
And cover up the boy

And the flies come down in
Gommecourt, Thiepval,
Mametz Wood, and French Verdun
If the preacher he could see those flies
Wouldn't preach for the sound of guns

And I
And I can't stop shaking
My hands won't stop shaking
My arms won't stop shaking
My mind won't stop shaking
I want to go home
Please let me go home
Go home

The Zombies - Odessey & Oracle, 1968
