A Horse With No Name

Hoy he descubierto esta canción. Ya tiene 40 anos y estoy segura de haberla oido ya, pero hoy de camino al colegio he escuchado la letra y me ha encantado. Me ha transportado a un paisage de cielo azul intenso, viento, con rocas, irregular, vegetación espinsosa e insectos ruidosos.

Me ha puesto nostalgica y una vez más desear correr y no contemplar prados verdes, con vegetación de hoja ancha, insectos tímidos y con cielos lechosos nunca más. Seguiré sonando.

Aquí os dejos la versión de América, que la verdad, mejor escuchar que mirar, por Dios que lánguidos, seguida por otra versión de D.A.D un grupo danés de los 80.

A horse with no name by DAD

Y para que la puedas cantar, aqui pongo la letra, copiada de aqui.

On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

After nine days I let the horse run free
‘Cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it’s life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
‘Cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain
La, la …
