Anit veurem llums brillants (1974 #5)



El gran Richard Thompson (un favorit absolut dels orfes den Waits, com podeu comprovar pel gran nombre d´entrades en les que apareix el seu nom) i la seva ex-parella Linda van firmar alguns dels discs més brillants que es van publicar a Anglaterra a la dècada dels 70´s.

No he trobat cap font de fiar que doni la data exacta de publicació d´aquest discarro, però el que és segur és que va sortir al mercat durant l´abril de 1974:



#5 1974 - I WANT TO SEE THE BRIGHT LIGHTS TONIGHT




A continuació vídeo del tema que donava títol al disc, en una versió bastant diferent (pel meu gust superior a l´original del 74) que Linda i Richard gravaríen anys després (1981) en directe a la BBC. Enjoy!



I'm so tired of working every day
Now the weekend's come
I'm gonna throw my troubles away
If you've got the cab fare, mister, you'll do all right
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
There's crazy people running all over town
There's a silver band, just marching up and down
And the big boys are all spoiling for a fight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
A couple of drunken nights rolling on the floor
Is just the kind of mess I'm looking for
I'm gonna dream 'till Monday comes in sight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Meet me at the station, don't be late
I need to spend some money and it just won't wait
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
Take me to the dance and hold me tight
I want to see the bright lights tonight
