Cerati.

A Gustavo Cerati le gustaba la música. Le gustaban todos los géneros. Le gustaba tanto la música, que en lugar de rendirle tributo a esas canciones y/o artistas que tanto admiraba terminó cometiendo plagio.

Sé que es molesto y fácil de contraatacar y decir que él solo tomaba lo que necesitaba. El de todos modos hacia música increíble. Él sigue siendo un icono de la música del rock en español. Blah. Blah. Blah. Aquí no estoy disputando eso. Lo que estoy diciendo es que se robó canciones. Tomó algo que no era de él y lo hizo pasar como original. Quizás esto lo pudo lograr debido a la falta de conocimiento musical de sus fans o quizás sus fans simplemente lo ignoraban con tal de que siguiera sacando un disco mediocre y otro.

En el siguiente video hay varios ejemplos. No los voy a mencionar por escrito para no arruinar la sorpresa.

Los que si voy a mencionar, que no vienen ahí, son los siguientes:

  • La portada de Bocanada es muy similar a la portada de los Greatest Hits de Bob Dylan.
  • El título de “Ella usó mi cabeza como un revolver” viene de la canción Planet Queen de T-Rex.
  • Paseo Inmoral suena muy similar a Rock N Roll pt 2 de Gary Glitter.
  • En la de Zoom también seña un poco a La Fuerza del Destino de Mecano.
  • Al final de Efecto Doppler suena como el final de Glass Onion de The Beatles.
  • El disco de Dynamo suena a Ride y My Bloody Valentine.
  • En Amor sin Rodeos es Can’t Find My Way Home de Blind Faith.
  • El sonido de The Police en el disco de Doble Vida.
  • Superstar es Hello Goodbye de The Beatles.
  • Pic Nic en el 4to B es Pretty Persuasion de R.E.M.

Es muy probable que me hagan falta varias canciones e instancias de mencionar, por favor no sean tímidos y háganlo saber para poder incluirlas.

Gracias…

Songs about Home

We were looking for a home, a good, safe place to live and finally we found one!, but it took time, energy, money, patience, etc..during the search efforts driving around town, we listened to a lot of music, not as much as we wanted, still thinking of all the music we want to share with everybody, we came up with the idea of creating a list of songs that are about or talk about “Home”, here it is, don’t forget to follow us on Spotify.

 

Portishead – SOS

Portishead – “SOS”, the song is a cover of ABBA‘s 1975 single, it was recorded specifically for the film “High Rise” and not for general release, in the video the band plays tribute to the late politician Jo Cox.

Jarvis Cocker – Quantum Theory

Jarvis Cocker – Quantum Theory

Last night I slipped through time to a parallel delusion
You were alive and happy
Our children played in trees, were strong and wise and knew no fear
We watched them play together

Somewhere everyone is happy
Somewhere fish do not have bones
Somewhere gravity cannot reach us any more
Somewhere you are not alone

This morning, when I awoke
God was dead but I lived on
I cannot move, but I am free
I found the source of gravity

Somewhere everyone is happy
Somewhere fish do not have bones
Somewhere gravity cannot reach us any more
Somewhere you are not alone

Somewhere in a parallel dimension
Happening now but not within your sight
The force that binds the universe together
Everything is gonna be alright

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright

Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright
Everything is gonna be alright

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds – Skeleton Tree

NickCave Skeleton Key

We are very excited to hear that Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds are releasing a new album, their sixteenth studio album, Skeleton Tree, will be released globally on vinyl, CD and across all digital platforms on 9th September 2016.

Skeleton Tree began its journey in late 2014 at Retreat Studios, Brighton, with further sessions at La Frette Studios, France in autumn 2015. The album was mixed at AIR Studios, London in early 2016.

The first opportunity anyone will have to hear any of the songs from the album will be to watch One More Time With Feeling, directed by Andrew Dominik (Chopper, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Killing Them Softly). The film will screen in cinemas across the world on 8th September 2016, immediately prior to the release of Skeleton Tree the following day.

Originally a performance based concept, One More Time With Feeling evolved into something much more significant as Dominik delved into the tragic backdrop of the writing and recording of the album. Interwoven throughout the Bad Seeds’ filmed performance of the new album are interviews and footage shot by Dominik, accompanied by Cave’s intermittent narration and improvised rumination.

Filmed in black-and-white and colour, in both 3D and 2D, the result is stark, fragile and raw.

Pre-order the album now on CD, vinyl anddownload.
