Elvis Costello – Oliver’s Army

Permeteu-me una actualització rapideta del blog, que no tinc temps per a res més, ni per a fer fotos!!

Ah, quin gran clàssic del pop atemporal. Aquesta cançó antimilitarista va suposar l’èxit comercial més gran per a l’esprimatxat i camatort Elvis Costello, qui no necessitava coreògraf per a fer cançons i gravar videoclips. El de sota no és el millor exemple, però algun dia us en posaré algun altre on ens mostri les seves habilitats per al ball.

Gaudiu de la cançó!!

Don’t start me talking

I could talk all night

My mind goes sleepwalking

While I’m putting the world to right

Called careers information

Have you got yourself an occupation?

Oliver’s army is here to stay

Oliver’s army are on their way

And I would rather be anywhere else

But here today

There was a checkpoint Charlie

He didn’t crack a smile

But it’s no laughing party

When you’ve been on the murder mile

Only takes one itchy trigger

One more widow, one less white nigger

Oliver’s army is here to stay

Oliver’s army are on their way

And I would rather be anywhere else

But here today

Hong Kong is up for grabs

London is full of Arabs

We could be in Palestine

Overrun by a Chinese line

With the boys from the Mersey and the Thames and the Tyne

But there’s no danger

It’s a professional career

Though it could be arranged

With just a word in Mr. Churchill’s ear

If you’re out of luck or out of work

We could send you to Johannesburg

Oliver’s army is here to stay

Oliver’s army are on their way

And I would rather be anywhere else

But here today

ACTUALITZACIÓ: El video es torna a veure correctament, i de premi un altre on es pot veure un moviment de genolls i tormells que ja voldria haver fet l’altre Elvis.
