Elvis Presley Blues


La admiración y el respeto que le tienen la gran mayoría de artistas a Elvis es algo que ni tan siquiera se puede discutir. Otro buen ejemplo ha sido el de Tom Jones en su nuevo álbum recuperando un precioso tema de Gillian Welch titulado "Elvis Presley Blues". A continuación, os dejo la original y la de Tom Jones. Maravilloso homenaje por ambas partes al mito definitivo del rock'n'roll.


I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died

Just a country boy that combed his hair
And put on a shirt his mother made and went on the air
And he shook it like a chorus girl
And he shook it like a Harlem Queen
He shook it like a midnight rambler, baby
Like you never seen, like you never seen, never seen

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died

How he took it all out of black and white
Grabbed his wand in the other hand and he held on tight
And he shook it like a hurricane
He shook it like to make it break
And he shook it like a holy roller, baby
With his soul at stake, with his soul at stake, soul at stake

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died

He was all alone in a long decline
Thinking how happy John Henry was that he fell down and died
When he shook it and he rang like silver
He shook it and he shine like gold
He shook it and he beat that steam drill, baby
Well bless my soul, well bless my soul

He shook it and he beat that steam drill, baby
Well bless my soul, what's wrong with me?

I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died
I was thinking that night about Elvis
Day that he died, day that he died..

Las Vegas good old days. En su autobiografía cuenta anécdotas con el Rey de esos años, entre otras que estuvieron a punto de hacer un dueto los dos ¡Menudo duelo!

ROCKLAND dijo...

Victor: una gozada de tema. Los dos suenan geniales!!

Musicaquemesorprende: para mi gusto, en este caso vuelve a ganar la original.

Ffélix: uff, ya te digo! Qué pena que no se materializase semejante dueto. Todo un duelo de titanes, je,je.


Saludos!
