Sandi Thom Рpunk-rocker med blomster i h̴ret

5. maj 2007

[Chorus:]
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In ’77 and ’69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

When the head of state didn’t play guitar
Not everybody drove a car
When music really mattered and when radio was king
When accountants didn’t have control
And the media couldn’t buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn’t know everything

[Chorus]

When pop stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when god saved the queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
My mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail

[Chorus]

When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs
And playing games meant kick arounds
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face

[Chorus]

I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair

Over i Stenstropedia har Uffe hentet Sandi Thom frem i lyset – og med god grund – og man diskuterer blandt andet modsætningen i tekstens titel: En punk-rocker med blomster i hÃ¥ret. Men teksten giver god mening. Vi har at gøre med en ung nostalgiker, der – som Uffe plejer at gøre opmærksom pÃ¥ – synes, at det var bedre i gamle dage… ;-)

    Jeg har lige lagt en lang kommentar omkring sangen og Sandi hos Uffe. Du skulle tage at læse den … ;-)

  2. Carsten kommentarer:

    MÃ¥ske man ligefrem kan betegne hende som anakronist – jvf. sammenstødet af hhv. punk- og hippiekultur i hendes (glimrende) sang? Personligt mener jeg, at hun omgÃ¥ende bør udnævnes til æresmedlemm af Anakronistisk Folkeparti ;-)

  3. capac kommentarer:

    @Carsten & Irene: Ja, hendes sang skal i Anakronistik Højskolesangbog – ogsÃ¥ selv om myten brast…

  4. Uffe kommentarer:

    Irene, nu stopper du! Man berøver ikke folk deres illusioner.

  5. Irene kommentarer:

    UNDSKYLD – UNDSKYLD – UNDSKYLD!
    Jeg lover aldrig mere at gøre det! LOVER på det aller lysegrønneste!
