Merry Christmas, Feliz Natal :)

"Blue Car" again.
This song enchants me always with this image of the car apparently empty, but with of the small kid behind the wheel, as if the car was rolling alone.
To all the kids inside us, Merry Xmas :)

Tuesday's over

Dedicated to all those who give their souls, their hearts and their lives ... for a living.
And sending a special hug from Lisbon to Berlin.

"Feira da Ladra" (The Thiefwoman's Market) is a Lisbon's traditional Flea Market that exists since the 13th century, happening every Tuesday and Saturday.

Ash day (day of Fasting) is the Wednesday after Carnival. It's applied in this song only metaphorically.

It's Tuesday _ The Flea Market _ opens today at 5 in the morning
And the girl _ runs down the stairs four at a time _ to sell heartaches for a bargain
She's going to sell _ fake promises, bitternesses, illusions, _ rags and shards and contradictions

It's Tuesday _ maybe Ash day _ Tomorrow is wednesday _ Let there be fire again
The heart _ is unable _ to say "whatever" _ Goes to the war _ with eyes on peace

It's Tuesday _ The Flea Market _ is overflowing with a crowd
And the girl _ sells everything that she brought _ changing sadness for joy _
And everyone wants and bargain _ bitternesses, illusions, _ rags and shards and contradictions

It's Tuesday _ and the Flea Market _ It's finally quiet and abandoned
And the girl _ Left a moan on the floor _ That rises and spins and it runs in the wind
And twirls and browses _ and plays the Blind Man's Buff _ it belongs to us all but surrenders to no one

we have all the time in the world

have a lovely weekend :)

For the Turnstiles, 10 years after

10 years ago the Be Good Tanyas released their album "Hello Love" with this amazing cover from Neil Young's song "For the Turnstiles".
I firstly listened to it only one year later, when António Sérgio started his daily radio shows Viriato 25 at Radar Radio. Back then António Sérgio was giving great highlight to the brand new "Like a Hurricane", a tribute album to Neil Young. He particularly loved to play to this BGTs cover included in that new compilation.

Don't know when this session happened but the "Tanyas" shared it yesterday on their Facebook page, sounding as well as ten years ago on Hello Love studio album :)
