Una canción del pasado. Una canción que ha marcado a muchos artistas y bandas que la han versionado, respetando la idea fundamental de la canción, arriesgando algunos a cantarla en castellano,… Chapeau!
En definitiva un temazo de Magazine: Song From Under the Floorboard, o,… La canción de la suciedad.
My irritability keeps me alive and kicking
I know the meaning of life, it doesnt help me a bit
I know beauty and I know a good thing when I see it
This is a song from under the floorboards
This is a song from where the wall is cracked
My force of habit, I am an insect
I have to confess Im proud as hell of that fact
I know the highest and the best
I accord them all due respect
But the brightest jewel inside of me
Glows with pleasure at my own stupidity
This is a song ….
I used to make phantoms I could later chase
Images of all that could be desired
Then I got tired of counting all of these blessings
And then I just got tired
