20 anos de "Ten"


Quando em 1991 ouvi pela primeira vez "Ten", algo estava a mudar na cena musical. O movimento grunge já não era um bebé, há muito que em Seattle entre chuva e angústia uma nova forma de rock caminhava. Já rodavam cá em casa Soundgarden e Alice in Chains. Um amigo de infância com um gosto por música a roçar o obsessivo [+ de 4.000 CDs e 600 LPs nas prateleiras] revelou-me "Ten" dos Pearl Jam. Foi há 20 anos atrás.

Esta música é sobre uma dura realidade já muito falada no purgatório. Os sem-abrigo.



Freezin', rests his head on a pillow made of concrete, again.
Oh, feelin' maybe he'll see a little better set a days, ooh yeah
Oh hand out faces that he sees time again ain't that familiar, ooh yeah
Oh, dark grin he can't help when he's happy, looks insane ooh

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know so he chases them away-yeah
Oh, someday, yea, he'll begin his life again
Life again, Life again

Kneeling, looking through the paper though he doesn't know to read, ooh yeah
Oh, praying now to something that has never showed him anything
Oh, feeling understands the weather of the winters on its way
Oh, ceilings few and far between all the legal halls of shame, hey

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know so he chases them away-yeah
Oh, someday yet he'll begin his life again
Oh, whispering hands gently lead him away
Him away, him away
Yeah
Woo, Ah Yeah, Fuck It

(Guitar Solo - Breakdown)

Even flow, thoughts arrive like butterflies
Oh, he don't know so he chases them away-yeah
Ah someday yet he'll begin his life again, yeah
Oh, whispering hands gently lead him away
Him away, him away
Yeah
Woo, Uh huh yeah, yeah yeah, momma mommy

Gosto muito de Pearl Jam. Mas, do movimento grunge, os meus favoritos são Nirvana e Soundgarden. :)
