#21 Placebo – Song To Say Goodbye

Cuando salio el disco Meds de Placebo, y los fans escucharon esta canción, muchos temieron lo peor. Había rumores de la separación de la banda, y luego de ver que la última canción del disco era esta y terminaba con Goodbye, los rumores se acrecentaron. Todo se quedo en rumor y Placebo viene a México una vez más. Por mientras, aquí está esta canción, la única en la historia de Placebo en usar sección de cuerdas. Top top.

Placebo – Song To Say Goodbye

You are one of God’s mistakes.
You crying, tragic waste of skin.
I’m well aware of how it aches.
And you still won’t let me in.
Now I’m breaking down your door,
to try and save your swollen face.
Though I don’t like you anymore
you lying, trying waste of space.

Before our innocence was lost
you were always one of those
blessed with lucky 7s,
and the voice that made me cry.
My oh my.

You were mother nature’s son.
Someone to whom I could relate.
Your needle and your damage done,
remains a sordid twist of fate,
now I’m trying to wake you up,
to pull you from the liquid sky.
Cause if I don’t we’ll both end up
with just your song to say goodbye.

My oh my. A song to say goodbye,
A song to say goodbye,
A song to say,
Before our innocence was lost
you were always one of those
blessed with lucky 7’s,
and a voice that made me cry.

It’s a song to say goodbye.
It’s a song to say goodbye.
It’s a song to say goodbye.
It’s a song to say goodbye.
It’s a song to say goodbye.
It’s a song to say goodbye.
It’s a song to say goodbye.
It’s a song to say goodbye.

#22 Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Después de tener un éxito internacional con Run, como lograr igualar o superar eso. Pues Gary Lightbody tenía un as bajo la manga. En el verano del 2005, U2 le pidio a Snow Patrol que les abrieran un par de fechas en Escocia. Ellos accedieron, a pesar de que la gira del The Final Straw ya había terminado. En esos conciertos abriendo a U2, estrenaron solo una canción nueva, Chasing Cars. Un año después y un bajista menos, Chasing Cars fue grabada para el disco Eyes Open y elegida como segundo single, tanto en UK (siguiendo a You’re All I Have) como en USA (siguiendo a Eyes Open). Como golpe final, la canción fue la que musicalizó el final de temporada de Grey’s Anatomy, serie de T.V. #1 en Estados Unidos. Así fue como Snow Patrol empezó su conquista en Estados Unidos.

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes
They’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things
Will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
