Eclipsi. (Space Oddity. David Bowie)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Aquests dies que se celebra el fet que l’home arribés a la lluna, es poden llegir manta articles sobre la veracitat o no d’aquest fet. Personalment, crec que sí es va arribar. I tots els dubtes que s’han escrit al voltant, em semblen poc creïbles i molt fàcil demostrables..
La lluna, sempre hi és. I és veritat que és encisadora i que atreu la mirada i la teva ànima.
De cançons sobre aquest satèl·lit n’hi ha un munt, Rem, Pink Floyd, etc.. però he triat aquesta que escoltava de tant en tant. NO sóc massa fan de David Bowie, tret d’algunes cançons molt i molt bones.

Aquesta, al final té com una mena de final trist, catastròfic, però és capaç de transmetre la sensació d’estar flotant a l’espai..

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet onGround Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God’s love be with youTen, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift offThis is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dareThis is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different todayFor here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can doThough I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knowsGround Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you…Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

En fi, com una mena d’homenatge..
