As Melhores Músicas do Ano - Parte XV

1 - Music - The Gift



I'm doing for music
I'm doing it for love
I'm doing for everyone around me

I'm doing for music
I'm doing it for love
I'm doing for everyone around me


And i try to be
The only one with this melody in my head

But I think I hear this song somewhere

I'm doing for music
I'm doing it for love
I'm doing for everyone around me


Because i'm doing if for music
And i'm doing this for love
I guess I'm doing it for everyone around me

2 - Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand (video)



So if you're lonely
You know I'm here waiting for you
I'm just a cross-hair
I'm just a shot away from you
And if you leave here
You leave me broken, shattered I lie
I'm just a cross-hair
I'm just a shot, then we can die

I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say... take me out

I stay, you don't show
Don't move, time is slow
I say... take me out

I say you don't know
You say you don't go
I say... take me out

If I move, this could die
If eyes move, this could die
Come on... take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

I say don't you know
You say you don't know
I say... take me out

If I move, this could die
If eyes move, this could die
Come on... take me out

I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here
I know I won't be leaving here (with you)
I know I won't be leaving here with you

3 - Passeio dos prodígios - Jorge Palma



Vamos lá contar as armas
tu e eu, de braço dado
nesta estrada meio deserta
não sabemos quanto tempo as tréguas vão durar...

há vitórias e derrotas
apontadas em silêncio

no diário imaginário
onde empilhamos as razões para lutar!

Repreendo os meus fantasmas
ao virar de cada esquina

por espantarem a inocência
quantas vezes te odiei com medo de te amar...

vejo o fundo da garrafa
acendo mais outro cigarro
tudo serve de cinzeiro
quando os deuses brincam é para magoar!

Vamos enganar o tempo
saltar para o primeiro combóio
que arrancar da mais próxima estação!
Para quê fazer projectos
quando sai tudo ao contrário?
Pode ser que, por milagre,
troquemos as voltas aos deuses

Entre o caos e o conflito
a vontade e a desordem
não podemos ver ao longe
e corremos sempre o risco de ir longe demais

somos meros transeuntes
no passeio dos prodígios
somos só sobreviventes
com carimbos falsos nas credenciais

Vamos enganar o tempo...

As Melhores Músicas do Ano - Parte XII

4 - Muda de Vida - Humanos (jukebox)



Muda de vida se tu não vives satisfeito
Muda de vida, estás sempre a tempo de mudar
Muda de vida, não deves viver contrafeito
Muda de vida, se há vida em ti a latejar

Ver-te sorrir eu nunca te vi
E a cantar, eu nunca te ouvi
Será de ti ou pensas que tens...que ser assim?...

Muda de vida se tu não vives satisfeito
Muda de vida, estás sempre a tempo de mudar
Muda de vida, não deves viver contrafeito
Muda de vida, se há vida em ti a latejar

Ver-te sorrir eu nunca te vi
E a cantar, eu nunca te ouvi
Será de ti ou pensas que tens...que ser assim?...

Olha que a vida não, não é nem deve ser
Como um castigo que tu terás que viver

Muda de vida se tu não vives satisfeito
Muda de vida, estás sempre a tempo de mudar
Muda de vida, não deves viver contrafeito
Muda de vida, se há vida em ti a latejar

As Melhores Músicas do Ano - Parte XI

5 - Rosa - Rodrigo Leão


Hoje o céu está mais azul
eu sinto
fecho os olhos mesmo assim

eu sinto
o meu corpo estremecer
não consigo adormecer
Nem o tempo vai chegar
para dizer o quanto eu sinto
você longe de mim
é uma espécie de dor.

Hoje o céu está mais azul eu sinto
Pois sinto
Olho à volta, mesmo assim
eu sinto
que este amor vai acabar
e a saudade vai voltar
nem o tempo vai chegar
para dizer o quanto eu sinto
você longe de mim
é uma espécie de dor
nem sei o que esperar
dessa vida fugidia
não sei como explicar
mas é mesmo assim o amor

6 - Música - A Naifa (video)




Como um raio a rasgar a vida
Como uma flor a florir desmedida
Como uma cidade secreta
A levantar-se do chão
Como Água, como Pão...

Como um raio a rasgar a vida
Como uma flor a florir desmedida
Como uma cidade secreta
A levantar-se do chão
Como Água, como Pão...

Como um instante único na vida
Como uma flor a florir desmedida
Como uma pétala dessa flor
A levantar-se do chão
Como Água, como Pão...

Assim nasceste no meu olhar
Assim te vi

Flor a florir desmedida
Assim te vi a rasgar a vida
Flor a florir desmedida
Assim te vi a rasgar a vida

7 - Cherry Blossom Girl - Air (video)




I don't want to be shy
Can't stand it anymore
I just want to say 'Hi'
To the one I love
Cherry blossom girl

I feel sick all day long
From not being with you
I just want to go out
Ever night for a while
Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true

I never talk to you
People say that I should
I can pray everyday
For the moment to come
Cherry blossom girl

I just want to be sure
When I will come to you
When the time will be gone
You will be by my side
Cherry Blossom Girl

Tell me why can't it be true

I'll never love again
Can I say that to you
Will you run away
If I try to be true
Cherry blossom girl

Cherry blossom girl
I'll always be there for you
That means no time to waste
Whenever there's a chance
Cherry blossom girl

Tell me why can't it be true

8 - Less Than You Think - Wilco (jukebox)




Your mind's a machine
It's deadly and dull
It's never been still and its will
Has never been free
Lightly tapping

A high-pitched drum

As your spine starts to shine
You shiver at your soul
A fist so clear and climbing
Punches a hole
In the sky
So you can see
For yourself
If you don't believe me

There's so much less
To this than you think

It's almost gone
The night is dissolving
In a cup God lifts
To toast the lightning

Lightly tapping
It's high-pitched and it hums

Your spine starts to shine
And you shiver at your soul
A fist so clear and climbing
Punches a hole
In the sky
So you can see
For yourself
If you don't believe me

There's so much less
To this than you think

9 - A Distorted Reality Is Now a Necessity to Be Free - Elliott Smith



I'm floating in a black balloon
I must make it through this afternoon
Shame shifting shadow down drifting
Way out of town
And all you ladies and you gentleman
Unhappy where you could have been
Drive people like you drive a car
Till you don't know where you are
You don't impress me
I'm sorry that you're chained to the ground
But no big brother is gonna bring me down now
Rim's rolling now with all his might
Rain drops falling through a starry night
Sunrise on a choppy crusade
Waving back at you not me
You don't impress me
You can't be satisfied anyhow
And now big brother is gonna bring me back down

10 - Homesick - Kings Of Convenience (jukebox)




I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy
but I can't stop listening to the sound
of two soft voices blended in perfection
from the reels of this record that I've found

every day there's a boy in the mirror asking me:
what are you doing here?
finding all my previous motives growing increasingly unclear
I've traveled far and I've burned all the bridges
I believed as soon as I hit land
all the other options held before me
would wither in the light of my plan

so I'll lose some sales and my boss won't be happy
but there's only one thing on my mind
searching boxes underneath the counter
on a chance that on a tape I'd find

a song for someone who needs somewhere to long for
homesick because I no longer know where home is

11 - I Was Made To Love You - Polly Paulusma



In the sky I see angels flying all over town
they've got names in their
pockets of lovers lost and found
if I send you my angel, would you send
yours to me?
if our angels collide in the sky, you'll say it was meant to
be...

...and days blank like they bleached them
and nights outline air like
static on the phone
and you say that you feel them,
but the words you
picked so carefully keep coming out all wrong
so I'll write them in light
and I'll carve them in stone
I was made for loving you
I was put on
this sweet earth too,
I was made to love you

in the air I hear gunfire, going off in the hills. Clocks are ticking,
the battle is nearing, I'm fending them off with these pills.
if you're
stuck in the front line, would you charm your way out?
you might like the
idea of the kill, but you don't know what dying's about.... (chorus)

In the sky I see angels flying all over town
they've got drugs in their
pockets, to keep us all on the ground.
I won't send you my angel; angels
only deceive.
Spit the pills out feed fuel to your fear
and fly away
with me (chorus)

12 - The Brute Choir - Bonnie 'Prince' Billy



Cow-call, and they were all calling together
Describing the way to go
I never hurt someone so young
And I never held someone so sweet
Makes me want to holler with them
All the way down

All the way down
Their voices show the way
How to hold it back
See the end of the day
Shut their mouths, shut their mouths
And rip the pictures down
Withdraw, withdraw, you live so far from town

This is what makes a thing last
Won't make what didn't happen go
Take fear and call it lust
Let me go lay in the snow
I cannot rest
With so many singing so many songs
And what a way of singing

Their voices are bringing trees to their knees
With nothing to say when they're speaking
They're quiet, the choir, their voices go higher
The choir, the choir, their voices go higher

Absent Friends

Absent Friends
Absent friends, here's to them
And happy days, we thought that they would never end.
Here's to absent friends.


Little Jean Seberg seemed
So full of life, but in those eyes such troubled dreams.
Poor little Jean.Woodbine Willie couldn't rest until he'd
Given every bloke a final smoke before the killing.
Old Woodbine Willie.

Steve McQueen jumped the first one clean
But the great escape he'd tried to make was not to be.
Maybe next time Steve.

Laika flew through inky blue
'Til Laika neared the atmosphere and Laika knew
Laika's life was through.


Oscar Wilde was a lonely child.
He fought and won acceptance from the world.
They smiled, they laughed, they praised,
They drove poor Oscar to his grave.


Absent friends, here's to them,
And happy days, we thought that they would never end,
But they always end.

Raise your glasses then to absent friends.
