ODISEA ESPACIAL (based on "Space Oddity" written by David Bowie)

Ground Control: Ground control to major Tom
Tom: Yes!
Ground Control: Ground control to major Tom
Tom: Yes, I AM here!
Ground Control: Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Tom: Tano's mother
Ground Control: (Ten) Ground control (Nine) to major Tom (Eight)
Tom: Yes, I hear you, I hear you
Ground Control: (Seven, six) Commencing countdown (Five), engines on (Four)
(Three, two) Check ignition (One) and may gods (Blastoff) love be with you...
Tom: ....AAAAAAAAY!!!!
I'm going down, there's no short cut

Ground Control: This is ground control to major Tom, answer if you are OK
If you dare to finish this mission
Open the door and go out to the exterior

Tom: Attention ground control, this is Tom
Tom: I'm going to try to go out.

Ground Control: Communicate us how are your palpitations
Tom: I communicate you that I am aaarhhg..(gasps)..od.

Ground Control: Please, don't be impertinent
Tom: I know, the mess from the president.

Ground Control: Attention, attention Commander Tom, go out now and tell us what you see
Tom: I see dust, dust, I mean, Commander Tom to Earth
I can't see the Earth, can't see nothing because I have my mask upside down
Now I can see through one eye, the right one, I think.
Ground Control: Spreak clearly, spreak clearly
Tom: I spreak clearly, now I spreak clearly
Now I can see with my both eyes
I'm see something floating next to me
Oh, it's the Spanish Peseta
To my left is the French Frank, it is also floating
Oh, watch out! The dollar is going down like a meteorite!
The Sterling Pound is also going down, and even faster!
Be careful with the Portuguese Escudo, it seems it is going down too

Ground Control: Keep informing us, keep informing us.
Tom: Up there I see a tiny light
It's the Sweet Planet, a sugar price tag is attached to it
It is so high far away from the oil prices.

Ground Control: Attention Commander, look down and tell us what you see.
Tom: I see a mob, an unemployed mob, probably the people from SEAT (car manufacturer).
Near by there are like two light bulbs
Perhaps two factories burning
It seems to me you people in Spain are going to be without car this year, I foresee everybody walking

Ground Control: Attention, attention
Tom: Yes?
Ground Control: Communicate, communicate
Tom: Careful, this thing is moving, the rope falls down!

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
