I stedet for en julekalender – hvad skal vi lytte til i dag. Afsnit 9

15. december 2012

Det var sÃ¥ den fødselsdag. Og vi iler af sted mod den næste… Og i dag lytter vi til Jonathan Richman, der filosoferer lidt over, hvilket fantastisk band Velvet Underground var….

Og teksten:

They were wild like the USA
A mystery band in a New York way
Rock and roll, but not like the rest
And to me, America at it’s best
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground.

A spooky tone on a Fender bass
Played less notes and left more space
Stayed kind of still, looked kinda shy
Kinda far away, kinda dignified.
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground.

Now you can look at that band and wonder where
All that sound was coming from
With just 4 people there.

Twangy sounds of the cheapest types,
Sounds as stark as black and white stripes,
Bold and brash, sharp and rude,
Like the heats turned off
And you’re low on food.
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground.
Like this…

Wild wild parties when they start to unwind
A close encounter of the thirdest kind
On the bandstand playing, everybody’s saying
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground.

Well you could look at that band
And at first sight
Say that certain rules about modern music
Wouldn’t apply tonight.

Twangy sounds of the cheapest kind,
Like “Guitar sale $29.99,”
Bold and brash, stark and still,
Like the heats turned off
And you can’t pay the bill.
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground.

Both guitars got the fuzz tone on
The drummer’s standing upright pounding along
A howl, a tone, a feedback whine
Biker boys meet the college kind
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground.

Wild wild parties when they start to unwind
A close encounter of the thirdest kind
On the bandstand grooving, everybody moving
How in the world are they making that sound?
Velvet Underground.
