Røvhulsblues

19. april 2017

Bedst som man sidder og græmmes over den musik, der glider ud af radioen, sÃ¥ falder man over Iggy Pop og hans nye nummer “Ass hole blues”. Og straks giver livet lidt mening igen. “It’s full of negative energy. Listen at you own risk. It’s fun to play the blues”, siger Iggy om sangen (til Rolling Stone), og den er skrevet “about an asshole who’s out to get me,” SÃ¥ er I advaret, og det nytter ikke at brokke jer.

Og radioen spiller…

Som nævnt kom jeg tilfældigt til at lytte til DRs radioprogrammer. Især P5. Og det førte til, at jeg kom til at fÃ¥ et genhør med Jørgen de Mylius og hans programmer “Hithouse” og “Eldorado”. Jeg havde ikke forventet et sus af nostalgi fra barndommens Ã¥r – og fik det heller ikke. Tiden er gÃ¥et, det er ikke det samme, selv om musikken langt hen ad vejen var den samme som dengang. Jeg hørte bÃ¥de Herman’s Hermits, Bjørn Tidmann osv. Næh, der var engang…

I’d sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio

You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars
You made ‘em laugh, you made ‘em cry
You made us feel like we could fly.
Radio.

So don’t become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don’t know or just don’t care
And just complain when you’re not there

You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio, Radio.

All we hear is Radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is Radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio, what’s new?
Radio, someone still loves you!
