Veinte años cosidos a retazos
De urgencias disimulos y rutinas
Veinte años cumplidos en mis brazos
Con la carne del alma de gallina

Veinte años de príncipes azules
Que se marchaban antes de llegar
Veinte tangos de Manzi en los baúles
Veinte siglos sin cartas de papá

De Gonzáles Catán, en colectivo
A la cancha de boca, por laguna
Va soñando, hoy ganamos el partido
La niña de los ojos de la luna

Los muchachos de la 12 más violentos
Cuando la "junan" en la bombonera
Le piden, a la virgen de los vientos
Que le levante a Paula, la pollera

Veinte años de mitos mal curados
Dibujando Dieguitos y Mafaldas
Veinte vidas hubiera yo tardado
En contar los lunares de su espalda

Le debo una canción y algunos besos
Que valen más que el oro del Perú
Sus huesos son sobrinos de mis huesos
Sus lágrimas los clavos de mi cruz

De Gonzáles Catán, en colectivo
A la cancha de boca, por laguna
Va soñando, hoy ganamos el partido
La niña de los ojos de la luna

Alguna vez le harán un monumento
Los de la barra brava a mi "bostera"
Y una ermita, a la virgen de los vientos
Que le levanta a Paul, la pollera

De Gonzalez Catán a Tirso de Molina que trajín
De España a la Argentina, que meneo
Que vaivén, que ajetreo
Que mareo, que ruina
Y por culpa de quien
Del amor de una mina
Y total para que
Si al final, se rajó con un pibe
Que le prohíbe a mi ex
Ir a verme al gran rex
Cuando estoy de visita
No sea que Paulita se ponga a llorar
Al oír su milonga
No sea que a Paulita le dé por bailar
Al compás de la conga
Y vuelva enfermita a González Catán
Y no se reponga
Y se ponga más loca que lo habitual
Bendita pollera
Menuda bandera para una canción
Y que delantera!
Aquel año Boca salió campeón
En la Bombonera
Ninguna bostera se puede quejar
Aunque le sobre razón si
Pinta remeras en el corazón
Y con las caderas
Le toca a Palermo tocar el balón
La doce se altera
Le toca al gallego
Tocar este son
Para una bostera
El año en que Boca salió campeón
En la Bombonera

    No hay otra que decir que Joaquín Sabina sabe describir con sus canciones lo más bohemio de lo bohemio, lo más popular de lo popular y lo más apasionado de la pasión misma. En este caso, el fútbol, Boca Juniors, Diego Maradona, la Bombonera: íconos de un fútbol argentino glorioso.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
