PINK FOYD : SUMMER ’68 [ATOM HEART MOTHER, 1970]

Είχα πάντα μια αδυναμία στον Rick Wright, οργανίστα των Pink Floyd και συνθέτη λίγων σχετικά, αλλά πολύ ξεχωριστών κομματιών. Όπως αυτό εδώ το μικρό έπος από το Atom Heart Mother.
Always felt close to
Rick Wright, Pink Floyd’s keyboard player, and composer of relatively few, but extraordinary pieces. Like this little epic, for example, from Atom Heart Mother.

Would you like to say something before you leave
Perhaps you’d care to state exactly how you feel
We said good-bye before we said hello
I hardly even like you, I shouldn’t care at all
We met just six hours ago
The music was too loud
From your bed I gained a day and lost a bloody year
And I would like to know
How do you feel, how do you feel, ah-ah?
How do you feel, how do you feel, ah-ah?
Not a single word was said, the nights still hid our fears
Occasionally you showed a smile
But what was the need
I felt the cold far too soon, the wind of ’95
My friends are lying in the sun
I wish that I was there
Tomorrow brings another town
And another girl like you
Have you time before you leave to greet another man
Just you let me know
How do you feel, how do you feel, ah-ah?
How do you feel, how do you feel, ah-ah?
Pa, pa-pa, p-pa-pa
P-pa-pa, p-pa-pa, pa-p-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa
Pap-pa-pa, pa-pa-pa
Goodbye to you
Charlotte Kringles too
I’ve had enough for one day

    Ahhhh I had forgotten this little gem from an album I don’t play nearly enough. A strange mix of happy optimism with oddly violent and angst-ridden tension. Clever man, was Rick!
