Elvis Costello - So Like Candy (1991) VIDEO - MIGHTY LIKE A ROSE (ALBUM)



ELVIS COSTELLO
"So Like Candy"
Album: Mighty Like a Rose (1991 Warner Bros)

Single: 9/10
Album: 7/10

Costello nos entregaba esta gran canción en su primer disco de la década de los 90 siendo este tema el segundo single extraído del Lp después del magnífico "The Other Side of Summer".
Canción escrita por el duo Costello/McCartney en el que se detaca la fuerza y desarrollo de la voz de un Costello realmente inspirado, el toque McCartney y unos arreglos realmente espectaculares con fantástico final. Enorme MacManus! 


LETRA:

Here lies the powder and perfume
The pretty clothes are scattered 'round the room
And it's so like Candy
Here lies the lipstick and the face
The coloured tablets keep it all in place
And it's so like Candy
So like Candy

[Chorus:]
What did I do to make her go
Why must she be the one
That I have to love
So like Candy

Here lies a picture of a girl
Her arms are tight around that lucky guy
And it's so like Candy

And in her eyes a certain look
I thought I'd seen the last of long ago
And it's so like Candy
So like Candy

[Chorus]

I remember the day that picture was taken
We were so happy then
But that's so like Candy
She seemed so sweet to me I was mistaken
Oh no not that again
But that's so like Candy
She just can't face the day
So she turns and melts away

Here lie the records that she scratched
And on the sleeve I find a note attached
And it's so like Candy
"My Darling Dear it's such a waste"
She couldn't say "goodbye", but "I admire your taste"
And it's so like Candy
So like Candy

  1. Fase beatleana para este auténtico Bob Esponja musical, su capacidad para absorber estilos e influencias es ilimitada.
