Fue en un pueblo con mar, una noche después de un concierto
Tú reinabas detrás de la barra del único bar que vimos abierto
Cántame una canción al oído y te pongo un cubata
Con una condición, que me dejes abierto el balcón de tus ojos de gata

Loco por conocer los secretos de tu dormitorio
Esa noche canté al piano del amanecer todo mi repertorio

Los clientes del bar, uno a uno se fueron marchando
Tú saliste a cerrar, yo me dije "Cuidado, chaval, te estás enamorando"
Luego todo pasó, de repente, tu dedo en mi espalda
Dibujo un corazón y mi mano le correspondió debajo de tu falda

Caminito al hostal nos besamos en cada farola
Era un pueblo con mar yo quería dormir contigo y tú no querías dormir sola

Y nos dieron las diez y las once
Las doce y la una, y las dos y las tres
Y desnudos al anochecer nos encontró la luna

Nos dijimos adiós, ojalá que volvamos a vernos
El verano acabó, el otoño duró lo que tarda en llegar el invierno
Y a tu pueblo el azar, otra vez el verano siguiente
Me llevó, y al final del concierto me puse a buscar tu cara entre la gente

Y no halle quien de ti me dijera ni media palabra
Parecía como si me quisiera gastar el destino una broma macabra

No había nadie detrás de la barra del otro verano
Y en lugar de tu bar me encontré una sucursal del banco hispano americano
Tu memoria vengué a pedradas contra los cristales
"Sé que no lo soñé" protestaba mientras me esposaban los municipales

En mi declaración alegué que llevaba tres copas
Y empecé esta canción en el cuarto donde aquella vez te quitaba la ropa

Y nos dieron las diez y las once
Las doce y la una y las dos y las tres
Y desnudos al anochecer nos encontró la luna

Y nos dieron las diez y las once
Las doce y la una y las dos y las tres
Y desnudos al anochecer nos encontró la luna

    Saddest story about him falling for a girl he met in a bar where he played. She flirts with him and they go back to a hotel. He leaves her town and when he comes back the following year, as soon as his concert's over, he goes back to the same bar looking for her. To find what? A branch of the Spanish-American Bank! He -in his own words- avenges her memory throwing stones at the windows. Story ends with the police arresting him while he yells "I know it wasn't a dream!"

    As dramatic as it sounds here the song is really entertaining and yet another masterpiece of Joaquin Sabina's work!

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.
