Buenos días: New Slang, The Shins

Me gusta el saborcillo folk de The Shins, ya que no es casualidad que se encuentren con Simon & Garfunkel en la banda sonora de la adorable Garden State –por cierto había olvidado que también participa Zero 7 con esa otra canción preciosa In the waiting line–, gran soundtrack! New Slang es tan dulce que como que me calma pero a la vez me anima, justo lo que necesito para empezar tranquilo un domingo como este.


Gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth.
Only, i don’t know how they got out, dear.
Turn me back into the pet that i was when we met.
I was happier then with no mind-set.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the king of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.

New slang when you notice the stripes, the dirt in your fries.
Hope it’s right when you die, old and bony.
Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,
Never should have called
But my head’s to the wall and i’m lonely.

And if you’d ‘a took to me like
A gull takes to the wind.
Well, i’d ‘a jumped from my tree
And i’d a danced like the kind of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.

God speed all the bakers at dawn may they all cut their thumbs,
And bleed into their buns ’till they melt away.

I’m looking in on the good life i might be doomed never to find.
Without a trust or flaming fields am i too dumb to refine?
And if you’d ‘a took to me like
Well i’d a danced like the queen of the eyesores
And the rest of our lives would ‘a fared well.

  1. esta peli es genial y la banda sonora una de las mejores que he escuchado, otra muy buena canciónes que aparece en ella es “lebanese blonde” de thievery corporation.

  2. Me encanta The Shins, los conocí por la peli y de ahí me quedé pegada para siempre. Mi tema favorito el A Call To Apathy, pero Phantom Limb me llega al corazón (L).
