"I'm going to Spain"

Une chanson de circonstance pour ce qui me concerne (enfin, si j'arrive à y aller !). Au départ c'est une chanson bizarre d'un inconnu (enfin pour moi), Steve Bent, qui a été reprise par les géniaux post-punks de The Fall en 1993 pour donner une belle chanson pop tout en à peu près (j'adore le chant à l'arrache !)... je mets les deux, mais celle avec le drapeau espagnol (l'originale), bien qu'elle rappelle le sucre des années 70, est assez pénible à l'écoute.

La version de The Fall :


"I've sold my car, thrown in my job, I'm 34 years old
I think it's time I saw the world, and not Australia
I've sold my car thrown in my job I'm 34 years old
I think it's time I saw the world coz I hate the cold and rain and grey

I'm going to Spain
Cousin Norman had a real fine time last year
He said it doesn't rain
I hope I can quickly learn the language yeah
I hope I can quickly learn the language

And the factory floor presented me with some tapes of Elton John
I hope it might keep me company but I hate the goo- goo-goo-goodbyes
Coz I'm going to Spain
Cousin Norman had a real fine time last year
I hear it doesn't rain
I hope I can quickly learn the language yeah
I hope I can quickly learn the language yeah

My mother cried last Friday night
When I said that I'll be gone
She packed it up, and then cashed in her premium bonds
And I'm going to Spain
Cousin Norman had a real fine time last year
They say it doesn't rain
I hope I can quickly learn the language yeah
I hope I can quickly learn the language

I'm going to Spain
I'm going to Spain

Better rate culture there boy

I'm going to Spain
Cousin Norman had a real fine time last year
They say it doesn't rain
I hope I can quickly learn the language-eh."
