Canciones domingueras: Crash boom bang

Musicalmente de Suecia han salido artistas bastante interesantes más allá de los omnipresentes ABBA. Ejemplo de ello es Roxette, el duo formado por Marie Fredriksson y Per Gessle.

Roxette se caracterizan por desenvolverse perfectamente tanto en canciones puramente pop como en sus magníficas baladas testimonio de las mejores canciones de los años 80 y principios de los 90..

Y una balada será la canción dominguera de hoy, Crash boom bang de álbum del mismo nombre aparecido en 1994 cuando el dúo sueco estaba en la cima de su éxito.

Crash boom bang, es emotiva y sentimental en la voz de Marie como solo ella sabe interpretar las baladas de Roxette. Una canción simplemente perfecta.


My Papa told me to stay out of trouble
"When you've found your man, make sure he's for real!".

I've learned that nothing really lasts forever
I sleep with the scars I wear that won't heal
They won't heal.

Cos every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!
That's the call, that's the game and the pain stays the same.

I'm walking down this empty road to nowhere
I pass by the houses and blocks I once knew.

My Mama told me not to mess with sorrow
But I always did, and Lord, I still do
I'm still breaking the rules
I kick it up
I kick it down.

Cos every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the heart but then I hit the wall
Crash! Boom! Bang!
That's my real middle-name
It has always been the same
That's the call, that's the game and the pain stays the same.

I still feel the heat
Slowly fallin' from the sky
And the taste of the kissing
Shattered by rain
Comin' tumblin' from behind
And the wild holy war.

I kick it up
I kick it down

And every time I seem to fall in love
Crash! Boom! Bang!
I find the roses dying on the floor
Crash! Boom! Bang!
That's the tall, that's the game and the pain stays the same
That's my real middle-name
It has always been the same.

Oh Yea Oh Yea Oh Yea Uh-huh
Been the same, been the same
It has always been the same.
