Missing you

Uno stesso brano, nell'interpretazione dell'autore, di Tina Turner e di una band country. Vince la nonna, vince il carattere e il carisma. Mi piacerebbe se suonassero questa canzone al mio funerale.



Missing you
John Waite - No brakes - 1984
Tina Turner - Wildest dream - 1996
Brooks & Dunn - Tight rope - 1999


Every time I think of you
I always catch my breath
And I'm still standing here
And you're miles away
And I'm wondering why you left
And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight
I hear your name in certain circles
And it always makes me smile
I spend my time
Thinking about you
And it's almost driving me wild
And its my heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What my friends say
There's a message
In the wild
And I'm sending you
this signal tonight
You don't know
How desperate I've become
And it looks like I'm losing this fight
In your world
I have no meaning
Though I'm trying hard
to understand
And it's my heart that's breaking
Down this long distance line tonight
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What i might say
there's a message that I'm sending out
Like a telegraph to your soul
And if I can't bridge this distance
Stop this heartbreak overload
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What i might say
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
no way
since you've been gone away
I keep lying to myself
And there's a storm that's raging
Through my frozen heart tonight
I ain't missing you at all
Since you've been gone
Away
I ain't missing you
No matter
What my friends say
Ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I keep lying to myself
Ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
I ain't missing you
Ain't missing you
Oh no
No matter what my friends might say
I ain't missing you

Lascio un sorriso, data l'allegria...

Quello che lasci è sempre gradito.

Come gradito (e non particolarmente poco allegro) mi è fantasticare su molte persone che mi salutano alla fine di questo viaggio a tempo di Rhythm & blues canticchiando un brano che vuol dire: già sentiamo la tua mancanza. Statisticamente ci lascia prima Tina Turner, quindi non posso pretendere la sua performance; mi accontenterò del coro parrocchiale.

Ehi, volevo dire che lo so che I ain't missing you at all vuol dire che non mi manchi proprio per niente, ma dal contesto si capisce che si tratta si un'antìfrasi.
