Lou Reed est mort

Heroin

I don´t know just where I´m going
But I´m gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
´cause it makes me feel like I´m a man
When I put a spike into my vein
And I tell you things aren´t quite the same
When I´m rushing on my run
And I feel just like Jesus´ son
And I guess that I just don´t know
And I guess that I just don´t know

I have made the big decision
I´m gonna try to nullify my life
´cause when the blood begins to flow
When it shoots up the dropper´s neck
When I´m closing in on death
You can´t help me now, you guys
And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
You can all go take a walk
And I guess I just don´t know
And I guess that I just don´t know

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
I wish that I´d sailed the darkened seas
On a great big clipper ship
Going from this land here to that
In a sailor´s suit and cap
Away from the big city
Where a man cannot be free
Of all the evils of this town
And of himself and those around
Oh, and I guess that I just don´t know
Oh, and I guess that I just don´t know

Heroin, be the death of me
Heroin, it´s my wife and it´s my life
Because a mainline in my vein leads to a center in my head
And then I´m better off than dead
Because when the smack begins to flow
I really don´t care anymore
About all the Jim-Jims in this town
And all the politicians making crazy sounds
And everybody putting everybody else down

And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds
´cause when the smack begins to flow
And I really don´t care anymore
Ah, when that heroin is in my blood
And the blood is in my head
Then I thank God that I´m as good as dead
And thank your God that I´m not aware
And thank God that I just don´t care
And I guess that I just don´t know
Oh, and I guess that I just don´t know


Je vous conseille particulièrement le second morceau "Héroin".

J'ai eu la chance de voir Lou Reed sur scène dans les arènes de Fréjus il y a de nombreuses années ... mémorable !

Bye Mr Reed.
Ad usque fidelis !

Zut, j'oubliais la phénoménale intro de Sweet Jane avec Steve Hunter à la guitare, album live "Rock 'n' Roll Animal." ... Merveille !

Ad usque fidelis !

Tu oublies Dick Wagner à l'autre guitare et le reste du groupe pour ce live merveilleux qu'est Rock n' roll Animal...
J'aurais pu citer "Walk on the wild side" qui restera une des plus grandes chansons du 20e siècle , mais je vais rester sur une touche légère , ce "Sick of you" (album "New York" ) , qui vaut le coup d'être traduit pour découvrir l'humour de Lou Reed.

Il va me manquer

I was up in the morning with the tv blarin'
Brush my teeth sittin' watchin' the news
All the beaches were closed the ocean was a red sea
But there was no one there to part in two
There was no fresh salad because there's hypos in the cabbage
Staten island disappeared at noon
And they say the midwest is in great distress
And nasa blew up the moon

The ozone layer has no ozone anymore
And you're gonna leave me for the guy next door
I'm sick of you
I'm sick of you

They arrested the mayor for an illegal favor
Sold the empire state to japan
And oliver north married william secord
And gave birth to a little teheran
And the ayatollah bought a nuclear warship
If he dies he wants to go out in style
And there's nothing to eat that don't carry the stink
Of some human waste dumped in the nile

We one thing is certainly true
No one here knows what to do
And I'm sick of you
I'm sick of you

The radio said there were 400 dead
In some small town in arkansas
Some whacked out trucker drove into a nuclear reactor
And killed everybody he saw

Now he's on morton downey and he's glowing and shining
Doctors say this is a medical advance
They say the bad makes the good and there's something to be learned
In every human experience

Well I know one thing that really is true
This here's a zoo and the keeper ain't you
And I'm sick of it
I'm sick of you

They ordained the trumps and then he got the mumps
And died being treated at mt. sinal
And my best friend bill died from a poison pill
Some wired doctor prescribed for stress
My arms and legs are shrunk the food all has lumps
They discovered some animal no one's ever seen
It was an inside trader eating a rubber tire
After running over rudy giuliani

They say the president's dead but no one can find his head
It's been missing now for weeks
But no one noticed it he had seemed so fit
And I'm sick of it

I'm sick of you
I'm so sick of you, bye, bye, bye

Bye, bye, bye

One fine mornin', she puts on a New York station
and she couldn't believe what she heard at all
She started dancin' to that fine-fine-fine-fine music
ooohhh, her life was saved by rock 'n' roll
hey baby, rock 'n' roll

Coney island baby



1975 et à mon avis la seule version qui vaille. Toutes celles enregistrées en live sont extrêmement décevantes mélodiquement parlant.

Faut dire que le Lou n'était au top de sa forme 365 jours par an. Quand je parlais de "mémorable" au sujet du concert auquel j'avais assisté, c'était dans le sens où Mister Reed était arrivé sur scène avec plus de 2 heures de retard et dans un état difficilement descriptible. J'hésite encore entre drogue dure et alcool par litrons. Prestation en dessous de tout mais le génie est quand même là et je ne lui en veux pas trente six ans plus tard.

Le ticket d'époque, un vrai collector. Je précise que ce n'est pas le mien... Que de souvenirs, j'étais tout gamin !

Il paraît que les Ricains qui chassaient à souhait les homosexuels dans les années 60 lui avaient balancé des électrochocs dans le dessein de le convertir à l'hétérosexualité ce qui n'a, et on le comprend volontiers, pas arrangé le bonhomme.

Hallucinant.

Salut Holland43 ,
En effet lors de la denazéification de l' Allemagne les ricains s' étaient indpirés de cette méthode pour anéantir le " triangle rose " . Ils appelaient ça une lobotomie . On a réellement commencé à en entendre parler à Paris dans les année 80
. Bien que T.Williams en avait fait une "superbe ébauche" en 1959 dans son film "Suddenly Last Summer"

Concernant Lou Reed et son "traitement électrique", c'est l'oeuvre de ses parents qui ont demandé une telle thérapie !!!

Je pense néanmoins que toutes les drogues ingérées par Lou Reed ont fait nettement plus de dégâts que les décharges de son enfance.

Oui GIOU , le Lou lui, faisait brûler le dos de la cuillère...

Ce matin j'écoute encore "New York" de 1988 ,dont le simple et direct mais fabuleux "strawman" où il posait ces questions ;

Does anybody need another million dollar movie
Does anybody need another million dollar star
yes Does anyone really need a billion dollar rocket
Does anyone need a 60,000 dollar car
Does anyone need another president
Does anyone need yet another politician Caught with his pants down and money sticking in his hole
Does anyone need another racist preacher
Does anyone need another faulty shuttle Blasting off to the moon, venus or mars
Does anybody need another self-righteous rock singer Whose nose he says has led him straight to god
Does anyone need yet another blank skyscraper

?

Je me les pose toujours aujourd'hui.
