MODERN LOVERS : PABLO PICASSO plus DAVID BOWIE COVER

Εκμεταλλευόμαστε την ευκαιρία των γενεθλίων του Pablo Picasso [25/10/1881] για να ακούσουμε το κλασικό τραγούδι του Jonathan Richman. Ηχογραφημένο το 1972 σε παραγωγή John Cale θα κυκλοφορούσε με το πρώτο άλμπουμ των Modern Lovers τέσσερα χρόνια αργότερα.
Επακολουθεί μια από τις ουκ ολίγες διασκευές που του έχουν γίνει, εκείνη του
David Bowie, στο άλμπουμ Reality – 2003.

We take the opportunity of
Pablo Picasso‘s b-day [25/10/1881] to hear the classic Jonathan Richman’s song.
It was recorded in 1972 – John Cale was the producer – and released on the first,
Modern Lovers album, four years later.
This s followed by one of the various covers of the song, the one
David Bowie did on the Reality album. – 2003


Well some people try to pick up girls
And get called asshole
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist to stare
And so Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole
Well, the girls would turn the color of an avocado
When he would drive down their street
In his El Dorado
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist to stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not like you
Alright
Well he was only five foot three
But girls could not resist to stare
Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole
Not in New York
Ah, well
Show me not, smock me not, obnoxious me not, bell bottom, bummer or asshole
Remember the story of Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist to stare
Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole
All right, this is it
Well
Some people try to pick up girls
And get called an asshole
This never happened to Pablo Picasso
He could walk down your street
And girls could not resist to stare
And so Pablo Picasso was never called

    Great set!
    I admit I’ve not really listened much to David’s 2003 album.
