Fast Car...

Hoy les dejo una gran versión del tema de Tracy Chapman, Fast Car. La llevan a cabo Boyce Avenue acompañado de Kina Grannis. Esta letra de Chapman siempre me ha parecido una maravilla, normal que este considerada una de las mejores cantautores del mundo. Y si además le sumamos la gran voz que tienen estos dos jóvenes talentos, la versión no pierde ningún punto con respecto a la original.

Feliz Fin de Semana

Lyrics - Tracy Chapman

You got a fast car
I want a ticket to anywhere
Maybe we make a deal
Maybe together we can get somewhere

Anyplace is better
Starting from zero got nothing to lose
Maybe we'll make something
But me myself I got nothing to prove

You got a fast car
And I got a plan to get us out of here
I been working at the convenience store
Managed to save just a little bit of money
We won't have to drive too far
Just 'cross the border and into the city
You and I can both get jobs
And finally see what it means to be living

You see my old man's got a problem
He live with the bottle that's the way it is
He says his body's too old for working
I say his body's too young to look like his
My mama went off and left him
She wanted more from life than he could give
I said somebody's got to take care of him
So I quit school and that's what I did

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so we can fly away
We gotta make a decision
We leave tonight or live and die this way

I remember we were driving driving in your car
The speed so fast I felt like I was drunk
City lights lay out before us
And your arm felt nice wrapped 'round my shoulder
And I had a feeling that I belonged
And I had a feeling I could be someone, be someone, be someone

You got a fast car
And we go cruising to entertain ourselves
You still ain't got a job
And I work in a market as a checkout girl
I know things will get better
You'll find work and I'll get promoted
We'll move out of the shelter
Buy a big house and live in the suburbs
You got a fast car
And I got a job that pays all our bills
You stay out drinking late at the bar
See more of your friends than you do of your kids
I'd always hoped for better
Thought maybe together you and me would find it
I got no plans I ain't going nowhere
So take your fast car and keep on driving

You got a fast car
But is it fast enough so you can fly away
You gotta make a decision
You leave tonight or live and die this way

  1. Me gusta esta versión pero es que la voz de Tracy especial. (Esta mujer me gustó desde la primera palabra que le oí que fue "Sorry" en Baby i can hold you).

    Y esta letra es genial. Me quedo con las dos últimas frases que podrían resumir todo...

    Qué buen paseo de sábado por tu rinconcillo !

  2. Ardid: Sii! A mi también me pasa igual cuando escucho "Baby I can hold you"... su voz pronunciando Sorry eriza la piel ! Y esto de acuerdo contigo, las dos ultimas frases lo resumen todo... :-)
