Tribulations

Everybody makes mistakes

But I feel alright when I come undone

You are not making me wait

But it seems alright as long as something's happening

I try to make you late

But you fighting me off like a fire does

You try making me wait

But it feels alright as long as something's happening

 

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

 

You try to make me wait

You come around when it's come undone

Everybody makes you late

And it's never you because you're always thinking

I try making you wait

And give you me some like you give it good

Everybody makes mistakes

But it seems it's mine that always keep on stinging

 

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

 

You try making me wait

But you come undone when you come undone

Everybody makes mistakes

But it's always mine that seem to keep on sticking

 

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

Get your payments from the nation

For your trials and tribulations

Maravilhas de 2018

Este ano não há Top 10s para ninguém. Este ano há uma lista alfabética de coisas que me maravilharam ao longo deste ano. Livros, discos, filmes, séries, concertos. Lembro-me destas, o que já quer dizer alguma coisa. Outras esqueci, a memória falha-me por vezes. Por ordem alfabética de autor:

  • Alfonso Cuarón - Roma - Se a memória fosse escrita, encenada, representada e filmada com perfeição virtuosística, era este filme. Um tratado sobre a arte do cinema. Com defeitos, claro, criticável, claro, mas isso haja liberdade para fazer sempre.
  • Bruno Nogueira (com Marco Martins e Ricardo Adolfo) - Sara - A melhor coisa que já se fez na ficção televisiva em Portugal. E ainda se consegue ver, creio. Do princípio ao fim, por favor.
  • Deborah Levy - The Cost of Living - Uma das jóias do ano, o confessional e diarístico escrito como deve ser. Já tinha gostado do "Hot Milk" e vou ler mais, estou certo.
  • Hanna Gadsby - Nanette - Sobre o humor, a gargalhada, o trauma, a liberdade e muitas outras coisas em que vale a pena pensar e sentir. Um tema para ler sempre mais.
  • Jon McGregor - Reservoir 13 - Pegar num género e ele ser outro género e deixar passar os anos anos e um livro ser isto.
  • Kore-Eda Hirokazu - Shoplifters - Vamos jogar um jogo de escondidas e descoberta com um amor profundo às nossas personagens. Foi merecida Palma de Ouro.
  • Laurie Anderson - Landfall (com Kronos Quartet)/ All The Things That I Lost In The Flood / ao vivo no Nimas - Um disco, um livro, um espetáculo, a perda, a poesia. Damn, girl.
  • LCD Soundsystem - Ao vivo no Coliseu dos Recreios - Transpirar a sério pelos melhores motivos com todos os meus amigos, mesmo os que não estavam lá.
  • Low - Double Negative - Quase sem querer, um disco que se entranhou. Fiquei surpreendido ao vê-lo em tantas listas de fim de ano, mas isso não me impediu de ouvir de novo.
  • Michael Ondaatje - Warlight - Volto sempre a ele e ele nunca me desilude, na intersecção entre história, indivíduo e poesia onde um dos corações da literatura vive.
  • Nick Cave - Ao vivo no Primavera Sound Porto - O momento, o local, o tempo, os artistas e, é claro, a música, no festival que prefiro, por estes dias.
  • Nick Drnaso - Sabrina - Tão longe chegou a chamada "novela gráfica". Nenhum preconceito deve impedir a leitura deste livro, num estilo tão limpo quanto os temas são graves, um relato minimal de um país caótico.
  • Paul Thomas Anderson / Johnny Greenwood - Phantom Thread - Les beaux esprits se rencontrent. Já tinha acontecido antes mas de novo aqui um filme, uma banda sonora, uma elegância que podemos destruir como nos apetecer.
  • Phoebe Waller-Bridge - Killing Eve - Espias, assassinas, mulheres. Um dos géneros mais antigos do audiovisual pode sempre ser baralhado sobre clichés e tornar-se um prazer.
  • Rosalía - El Mal Querer - Há gente que explica muito melhor que eu como este disco é musicalmente inteligente e viciante.
  • Ryan McGinley - Mirror, Mirror - Sempre a pensar, a sentir, a fotografar, rodeado de amigos e imagens, o Ryan mostra-nos o caminho.
  • Thom Yorke - Suspiria OST - Lá podia o Thom ficar atrás do Johnny. vivemos sobre os ombros de gigantes.
  • Thomas Adès - Concerto de piano com música de Leoš Janáček - Há sítios onde se volta, se é feliz e se descobre coisas que não se conhecia. A Gulbenkian é um deles.

(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang

LCD Soundsystem cover Heaven 17's "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" in the Electric Lady Sessions

 

Have you heard it on the news
About this fascist groove thang
Evil men with racist views
Spreading all across the land
Don't just sit there on your ass
Unlock that funky chaindance
Brothers, sisters shoot your best
We don't need this fascist groove thang

 

Brothers, sisters, we don't need this fascist groove thang

 

History will repeat itself
Crisis point we're near the hour
Counterforce will do no good
Hot you ass I feel your power
Hitler proves that funky stuff
Is not for you and me girl
Europe's an unhappy land
They've had their fascist groove thang

 

Brothers, sisters, we don't need this fascist groove thang

 

Democrats are out of power
Across that great wide ocean
Reagan's president elect
Fascist god in motion
Generals tell him what to do
Stop your good time dancing
Train their guns on me and you
Fascist thang advancing

 

Brothers, sisters, we don't need this fascist groove thang

 

Sisters, brothers lend a hand
Increase our population
Grab that groove thang by the throat
And throw it in the ocean
You're real tonight you move my soul
Let's cruise out of the dance war
Come out your house and dance your dance
Shake that fascist groove thang
(Shake it!)

 

"(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang" is a song written and performed by British synthpop band Heaven 17. It was a minor hit in the UK in 1981, despite being banned by the BBC. It was also a minor dance hit in the US. It developed from an instrumental, "Groove Thang", that Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh created earlier that year for Music for Stowaways, an album they released under the British Electric Foundation name.

I Can Change

Tell me a line
Make it easy for me
Open your arms
Dance with me until I feel all right

 

It's good in the dark
Good in the dark
But into the lover's light
Here comes another fight

 

So ring the alarm
Ring the alarm
Bar me and hold me and cling to my arm

 

Here it comes
Here it comes

 

And what you're asking me now
Disastrous now
Hoping and hoping and hoping the feeling goes away (away)

 

Never change, never change, never change, never change
Never change, never change, never change
This is why I fell in love

 

Never change, never change, never change, never change
Never change, never change, never change
That's just who I fell in love with (in love)

 

Oh this is the time
The very best time
So give me a line
And take me home
Take me over

 

But dashing the hopes
Dashing the hopes
And smashing the pride
The morning's got you on the ropes, oh

 

And love is a murderer
Love is a murderer
But if she calls you tonight
Everything is all right
Yeah, we know

 

And love is a curse
Shoved in a hearse
Love is an open book to a verse
Of your bad poetry
And this is coming from me

 

But I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you fall in love (in love)

 

I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you fall in love (in love)

 

Turn on the light
Make it easy for me
Fill the divide
Fumble in the kitchen 'til it's right
What an awful sight

 

But there's love in your eyes
Love in your eyes
Love in your eyes
But maybe that's just what your lover finds all night

 

And I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you fall in love (in love)

 

And I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you fall in love (in love)

 

And I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you feel real love (real love)

 

And I can change, I can change, I can change, I can change
I can change, I can change, I can change
If it helps you fall in love (in love)
