I am in the need of music

Gif daqui

I am in need of music that would flow
Over my fretful, feeling fingertips,
Over my bitter-tainted, trembling lips,
With melody, deep, clear, and liquid-slow.
Oh, for the healing swaying, old and low,
Of some song sung to rest the tired dead,
A song to fall like water on my head,
And over quivering limbs, dream flushed to glow!

There is a magic made by melody:
A spell of rest, and quiet breath, and cool
Heart, that sinks through fading colors deep
To the subaqueous stillness of the sea,
And floats forever in a moon-green pool,
Held in the arms of rhythm and of sleep.
Elizabeth Bishop

  1. Woodstock by Joni Mitchell - original

    I came upon a child of God
    He was walking along the road
    And I asked him where are you going
    And this he told me
    I'm going on down to Yasgur's farm *
    I'm going to join in a rock 'n' roll band
    I'm going to camp out on the land
    I'm going to try an' get my soul free

    We are stardust
    We are golden
    And we've got to get ourselves
    Back to the garden

    Then can I walk beside you
    I have come here to lose the smog
    And I feel to be a cog in something turning
    Well maybe it is just the time of year
    Or maybe it's the time of man
    I don't know who I am
    But you know life is for learning

    We are stardust
    We are golden
    And we've got to get ourselves
    Back to the garden

    By the time we got to Woodstock
    We were half a million strong
    And everywhere there was song and celebration
    And I dreamed I saw the bombers
    Riding shotgun in the sky
    And they were turning into butterflies
    Above our nation

    We are stardust
    Billion year old carbon
    We are golden
    Caught in the devil's bargain
    And we've got to get ourselves
    back to the garden

    EMBORA esta seja a minha versão preferida:
    Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Woodstock

    Mas há uma versão muito...original (?) dos Matthews Southern Comfort - 1970

    Woodstock: Three Days of Peace and Music !!!!
