THE DAMNED: LOVE SONG [MACHINE GUN ETIQUETTE, 1979]

Το φοβερό ξεκίνημα του άλμπουμ Machine Gun Etiquette των Damned, αντιπροσωπεύει τη punk άποψη για το ερωτικό τραγούδι. Όμως η μουσική και οι στίχοι δείχνουν, ότι έχουμε να κάνουμε με γκρουπ μπροστά από το “καλλιτεχνικό ήθος” της εποχής.

The awesome start to the Machine Gun Etiquette album by the Damned is a fine example of the punk stance on the erotic song. But music and lyrics show that we ‘re dealing with a band already pushing the envelope.

I’ll be the ticket if you’re my collector
I’ve got the fare if you’re my inspector
I’ll be the luggage, if you’ll be the porter
I’ll be the parcel if you’ll be my sorter
Just for you here’s a love song
Just for you here’s a love song
And it makes me glad to say
It’s been a lovely day
And it’s okay
I’ll be the mail, you’ll be the guard
I’ll be the ink on your season ticket card
I’ll be the rubbish, you’ll be the bin
I’ll be the paint on the sign if you’ll be the tin
Just for you here’s a love song
Just for you here’s a love song
And it makes me glad to say
It’s been a lovely day
And it’s okay
Just for you here’s a love song
Just for you here’s a love song
And it makes me glad to say
It’s been a lovely day
And it’s okay
It’s okay
It’s okay
