IGGY POP – PLAY IT SAFE [SOLDIER, 1980]


Γραμμένο μαζί με τον D. Bowie, το “Play It Safe” είναι από τα καλύτερα τραγούδια της σόλο καριέρας του Iggy Pop. Οι στίχοι έχουν ιδιαίτερο ενδιαφέρον στη [φαινομενική] αοριστία τους. …Ταιριαστοί μ’ αυτούς οι Simple Minds, που εκτελούν τα backing vocals.

Say Ta
Eisenhower saw the thing
He said this is sickening
I swear I saw the very thing
I saw it in America

Let’s play safe
I never knew how
How to play safe
You told me how
How to play safe
A thousand times

I don’t believe in fairies any more

Today I saw a very very thing
But that’s another song
You’re too simple minded
Let’s play it safe

What do we have in common?
Play it safe
What do we have in common?
Play it safe

I want to be a criminal
Play it safe

    He deserves a lot more respect from the music world. I feel they marginalize him.

      True. But on the other hand, he was lucky: in today’s “music world”, a guy like this wouldn’t have lasted 5 minutes…
      Thanks a lot!
