#7 The Kooks – Naive

Para principios de este año, los Kooks ya habían sacado 3 singles de su disco debut. Eddie’s Gun, Sofa Song y You Don’t Love Me. Si bien los tres entraron en el top 40 y tuvieron éxito relativo, ninguno había logrado ser el hit que esperaban ellos. Como última opción sacaron Naive. Resultó ser lo que ellos esperaban y más, llevando a los Kooks al reconocimiento nacional (e internacional). Y después se dieron cuenta que la regaron con los singles y sacaron She Moves In Her Own Way y Ooh La. Pero Naive sigue sonando ahora y más fuerte que nunca. Escrita acerca de la cantante Katie Melua, la ex-novia de Luke Pritchard cuando tenía 16 años. Abajo va acústica porque todos ya tienen la original.

The Kooks – NaiveI’m not saying it was your fault
Although you could have done more

Oh you’re so naive yet so

How could this be done
Your such a smiling sweetheart
Oh and your sweet and pretty face
In such an ugly way
Something so beautiful
That everytime I look inside

I know that she knows that I’m not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She’s still out to get me

I know that she knows that I’m not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She’s still out to get me

I may say it was your fault
Cause I know you could have done more

Oh you’re so naive yet so

How could this be done
By such a smiling sweetheart
Oh and your sweet and pretty face
In such an ugly way something so beautiful
Everytime I look inside

I know that she knows that I’m not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She’s still out to get me

I know that she knows that I’m not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She’s still out to get me

How could this be done
By such a smiling sweetheart

Oh you’re so naive yet so

Such an ugly thing
Someone so beautiful
And everytime you’re on his side

I know she knows that I’m not fond of asking
True or false it maybe be she’s still out to get me

And I know she knows that I’m not fond of asking
True or false it maybe be she’s still out to get me

Just don’t let me down
Just don’t let me down
Hold on to your kite
Just don’t let me down
Just don’t let me down
Hold on to your kite
Just don’t let me down
Just don’t let me down
Hold on to this kite
Just don’t let me down

Just don’t let me down

#8 Dirty Pretty Things – Deadwood

Y muy cerca dos canciones de DPT. Es que son casi igual de buenas, fue una difícil decisión. Pero Deadwoow, que abre el disco Waterloo to Anywhere, es una representación perfecta del mismo. Si no lo tienen, comprenlo, hay muchas muy buenas qeu no fueron singles ahí. Otra canción más inspirada por la ruptura de los Libertines. Ojala Carl Barat siga por esta línea para el próximo disco. We’re getting closer to #1.

Dirty Pretty ThingsDeadwood

You got the world boy

This all you make it?
You had the choice lad
You wouldnt take it
The oldest charm

Only the best for you

And the years of my life,
Some they were so good,
But now and again I feel
I was a coward
Are the holes in my soul
In tatters for all these tears
Well you dont see it that way

A way, a way

We’lll have it today

The dancing ones they really mean it

But something boy,
somethings gonna change

A way, a way

Youve got it they say
How do they know
When theyve never seen it?

And what will you do
When they forget your name?

Well you’ll up and get another one

Don’t give me that face
I know when I should live in disgrace
Not dig up the deadwood
I knew this place was never the place for me

And of the years that rolled by
Yeah some were so good
But now I know that
You were the coward
The holes in your soul
In tatters for all these years

But you cant see it that way

A way, a way

Well have it today
The dancing ones they really mean it
And mark my words
Something’s gonna change

A way, a way
Youve got it they say
But how do they know
When theyve never seen it?
And what will you do
When they forget your name?

Well you’ll up and get another one

A way, a way
We’ll have it today
The dancing ones they really mean it
But something boy
somethings gonna change

A way, a way
Youve got it today
But how do they know
When theyve never seen it?
And what will you do
When they forget your name?

Well you’ll up and get another one
