La canción del Lunes (25) #MusicMonday | MGMT – Kids

No os voy a decir la de veces que lleva Amy detrás mía para que le haga caso sobre esta canción… el caso es que he tenido que escucharla en un bar de copas y en un anuncio de TV (creo que sale al final del anuncio del Need For Speed Hot Pursuit), para reconocer, finalmente, el ojo musical que tiene esta chica 😉

Esta canción se llama Kids y es de un grupo de Estados Unidos llamado MGMT (antes se llamaban “The Management”) y estaba incluída en el disco “Oracular Spectacular” [Descargar] de 2008.

Como el vídeo original y oficial del grupo en Youtube tiene desactivada la inserción en blogs (nunca entenderé esta opción) y tarda más de un minuto en salir la canción, he decidido poner este otro vídeo que han hecho en el Grupo de grabación de vídeo del Instituto NYU Tisch Summer de Nueva York:


La letra:

You were a child,
crawlin’ on your knees toward it.
Makin’ mama so proud,
but your voice was too loud.

We like to watch you laughing.
You pick the insects off plants.
No time to think of consequences.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.
A family of trees wantin’,
To be haunted.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.
A family of trees wantin’,
To be haunted.

The water is warm,
but it’s sending me shivers.
A baby is born,
crying out for attention.
Memories fade,
like looking through a fogged mirror
Decision to decisions are made and not bought
But I thought,
this wouldn’t hurt a lot.
I guess not.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.

A family of trees wantin’,
To be haunted.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.
A family of trees wantin’,
To be haunted.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.
A family of trees wantin’,
To be haunted.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.
A family of trees wantin’,
To be haunted.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.
A family of trees wantin’,
To be haunted.

Control yourself.
Take only what you need from it.
A family of treeeeees…
