2016: LOVE IS

Meu amigo Tacho, como continuación da entrada Polos vellos tempos, mándame o enlace a esta canción Love Is, de Rod Stewart, interpretada por un músico de 70 anos, pero cheo de vitalidade, que canta dende a terraza do edificio Capitol Records de Hollywood, acompañando o solpor.

Tacho considera que é un tema que reborda alegría, cun ritmo de media marcha, con aires irlandeses e uns coros moi efectistas. Mentres cae o sol, Rod segue preguntándose polo amor e lembrando aquela moza que lle dixo: ti sabes que somos mozos para iso. O anterior, tan ben dito e tan fermoso e tan ben dito, está escrito por Tacho, ao que eu sempre lle digo que debería escribir.

Fermoso este LOVE IS para despedir o ano, aquí o comparto (non deixa velo directamente pero convida a ir a YouTube e alí, sen problema). Debaixo queda a letra en inglés. Pois iso, Polo 2016 e polo amor. LOVE IS…

And so you come to me with your questions
On a subject on which I’m well-versed
Though I’m still as dumbfounded as the first time I found her
It’s either a blessing or a curse
Although I cannot offer solutions
It would be reckless of me to try
Cause it’s mystified man ever since time began
But hold on to your hat and I’ll try

Love is like a burning arrow
It can pierce the coldest heart
Love is warm, love is patient
And the craziest thing you’ll ever start
All right

I recall when I was a young man
A day I’m never allowed to forget
There was a girl that I met who I dreamed I would wed
Forever our lives entwined
She said “you gotta stop worrying about the future”
“You know we’re far too young for that”
“I wanna spread my wings like a willow in the spring”
I never saw her pretty face again

Love is life, love is yearning
It does not boast, but speaks the truth
Love is fair and knows no boundaries
And the craziest thing you’ll ever do
Oh, yeah

I wish you well in all of your travels
And may you find what you’re searching for
It’ll hit you like thunder when you find one another
And stay in your heart forevermore

Love is like a four-leaf clover
Hard to find and hold onto
Love is blind, love is tender
And the craziest thing you’ll ever do
So crazy
