// En movella, hvori jeg vil samle mine yndlingsnumre og tilhørende sangtekster. Som så mange andre mennesker kan jeg ikke gå igennem en eneste dag uden musik, og det er nok den passion, som flest mennesker i hele verden har tilfælles. Om du så bryder dig om det samme som mig er en anden sag, men hvis du er til melankolsk indie/pop/slowcore-musik, så burde du blive. // Føl dig velkommen til at anbefale mig et nummer!

92. ♪ Piano Man - Billy Joel ♪

 

"They're sharing a drink they call loneliness, but it's better than drinking alone..."
 

Jeg elsker sange, der fortæller en konkret historie, hvilket desværre lidt er gået tabt i moderne musik. Jeg er for nylig blevet helt sindssyg med Billy Joel. Hvis du tænker, at du ikke kender ham, så tror jeg, at du tager fejl - du ved det bare ikke.

Det overraskede mig, da jeg for alvor begyndte at nørde hans musik, hvor mange af hans numre, jeg egentlig kendte. Han står bag et utal af klassiske hits, og dette er blot et af dem!

 

 

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin

He says, "Son can you play me a memory
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad and it's sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes"

 

La la la...
 

Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke or to light up your smoke
But there's someplace that he'd rather be

He says, "Bill, I believe this is killing me"
As a smile ran away from his face
"Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place"

 

La la la...
 

Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the Navy
And probably will be for life

And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone

Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for a while

And the piano it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, "Man, what are you doing here?"

 

La la la...
 

Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

 

Billy Joel, Piano Man
