Lost Weekend – Lloyd Cole And The Commotions

Hoy leía en mi querido, y a veces también odiado :::: ROCKDELUX :::: (más de 25 años dan para mucho), el articulo sobre Lloyd Cole, que publica disco este mes. La extensa discografía del bueno de Lloyd, ya sea en solitario o como Lloyd Cole and the Commotions está repleta de grandes canciones y a pesar de que la gran mayoría de la crítica considera Rattlesnakes como su obra maestra, la canción que yo siempre recuerdo es este “Lost Weekend” de su Easy Pieces, posiblemente (seguro) no sea su mejor canción pero es la que me trae recuerdos de un chaval de 16 años que en la primera de 1985 escuchaba en la radio esta canción y no podía dejar de mover los pies, hoy lo sigue haciendo.

Lost Weekend (Clark/Cole/Donegan 1985)

It took a lost weekend in a hotel in Amsterdam

And double pneumonia in a single room
And the sickest joke was the price of the medicine
Are you laughing at me now?
May I please laugh along with you?

This morning I woke up from a deep, unquiet sleep
With ashtray clothes and this lonely heart’s pen
With which I wrote for you a lovesong in tattoo upon my palm
‘Twas stolen from me when Jesus took my hand

You see I, I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t mean it
Drop me and I’ll fall to pieces
Too easily

I was a king bee with a head full of attitude
Wore my heart on my sleeve like a stain
And my aim was taboo, you
Could we meet in the marketplace
Did I ever hey please, did you wound my knees?

You see I, I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t mean it
Drop me and I’ll fall to pieces
Yeah too easily

There’s nobody else to blame
I hang my head in a crying shame
There is nobody else to blame
Nobody else except my sweet self

It took a lost weekend in a hotel in Amsterdam
Twenty four gone years to conclude in tears
And the sickest joke was the price of the medicine
Are you laughing at me now
May I please laugh along?

I was a king bee with a head full of attitude
An ashtray heart on my sleeve, wounded knees
And my one love song was a tattoo upon my palm
You wrote upon me when you took my hand

You see I, I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t mean it
Drop me and I’ll fall to pieces too easily
Too easily
Too easily
