Cebolla picada #6: Downtown

41


por La Femme Nishkita

Para un día de los enamorados al estilo Lost… Me recuerda a Desmond y a Penny, separados, pero unidos con esta canción: Downtown de Petula Clark.


When you’re alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go – downtown
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know – downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things’ll be great when you’re
Downtown – no finer place, for sure
Downtown – everything’s waiting for you

Don’t hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows – downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close – downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You’ll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown – waiting for you tonight
Downtown – you’re gonna be all right now

[Instrumental break]

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I’ll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things’ll be great when you’re
Downtown – don’t wait a minute for
Downtown – everything’s waiting for you

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown …

  2. yo tambien la identifico mas con la peli inocencia interrumpida, es genial, la cancion y petula idola, muchos recuerdos de cuando era chiquitita, saludosssssss

  3. en seinfeld george tenia que descifrar esta cancion para poder hacer bien una pega para los yankees.
    la encuentro cero romantica.
    a mi All I want is you de U2 hace que se me paren los pelos

  4. Yo tampoco encuentro romántica esta canción. Aunque me encanta!

    Lo cierto es que era adecuada para San Valentín, no por la canción en sí, sino por relacionarse con las historias de amor freak de Lost. ¿cuál de todas más freak?
