Música de paso: I Never Talk To Strangers

I NEVER TALK TO STRANGERS
Tom Waits & Bette Midler

75-BetteMidlerBartender, I'd like a manhattan, please 

Stop me if you've heard this one
I feel as though we've met before
Perhaps I am mistaken
But it's just that I remind you
Of someone you used to care about
Oh but that was long ago
Now tell me do you think I'd fall for that old line
I was none born just yesterday
Besides I never talk to strangers anyway
Well I ain't a bad guy when you get to know me
I just thought there ain't no harm
Hey just try minding your own business
But who asked you to annoy me
With your sad, sad repartee
Besides I never talk to strangers anyway

Your life's a dimestore novel
This town is full of guys like you
And you're looking for someone to take the place of her
You must be reading my mail
And you're bitter cause he left you
That's why you're drinkin in this bar
Well only suckers fall in love
With perfect strangers

It always takes one to know one stranger
Maybe we're just wiser now
Yeah and been around the block so many times
That we don't notice
That we're all just perfect strangers
As long as we ignore
That we all begin as strangers
Just before we find
We really aren't strangers anymore
Ah you don't look like such a chump.

Me encanta Tom Waits pero nunca había escuchado esta versión con Bette Midler. Gracias por haberla traído.

Sean dijo...

...que la mancha de la mora con otra verde se quita. Ciertamente estúpido enamorarse de un perfecto extraño, pero así somos; amor de necesidad, enamorado del amor. Grande, grandísimo Waits. Gracias, Sir.

Sandro dijo...

O quizás todos somos unos perfectos extraños.

Besos

Querido Sean, si nos enamorásemos con frecuencia de los extraños otro gallo cantaría en este mundo. Y veremos esa película, Sandro, que no la conocía. Abrazos para los dos y para el amigo Luis.

Sandro dijo...

A quien se le ocurre coger la ocho...

La mejor de Jarmusch, una peli que recuerdas largo tiempo, indie de 24 kilates. Gracias por traerla aquí, recuerdo la estima que le tenía Enrique, acudo rápido a releerla.

Viciosos, que sois unos viciosos... :-p

Sandro dijo...

I scream for Ice Cream...
