Viikon biisi/ the song of the week!!! (Vko 47)

Niin kuin jo aikaisemmin lupasin, tämä ei ole gospelia.
As I already promised earlier, this is not gospel.

Viikon biisi/the song of the week:       Some nights    - Fun

Törmäsin tähän biisin ensimmäisen kerran jossain fanitekoisessa Les Misérables -videossa. Ihastuin heti kappaleeseen, sillä se eroaa tavallisesta tylsästä poppiksesta. Biisin moniäänisyys, hyvät sanoitukset ja vaihtelevuus tekevät siitä kiinnostavan. Tämän biisin voi helposti kuunnella monta kertaa kyllästymättä.
I ran into this song for the first time in some fan made Les Misérables video. I immediately fancied this song because it's different from the generic boring bubblegum pop. The song's polyphony, good lyrics and variation make it interesting. This song can easily be listened many times without getting fed up.

Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck
Some nights I call it a draw
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh, Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for oh
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Most nights I don't know anymore...
Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh

This is it, boys, this is war - what are we waiting for?
Why don't we break the rules already?
I was never one to believe the hype
Save that for the black and white
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked,
But here they come again to jack my style

That's alright (that's alright)
I found a martyr in my bed tonight
She stops my bones from wondering just who I am, who I am, who I am
Oh, who am I? Mmm... Mmm...

Well, some nights I wish that this all would end
'Cause I could use some friends for a change.
And some nights I'm scared you'll forget me again
Some nights I always win, I always win...

But I still wake up, I still see your ghost
Oh, Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Whoa oh oh (What do I stand for?)
Most nights I don't know... (oh, come on)

So this is it. I sold my soul for this?
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?

(Come on)

No. When I see stars, when I see, when I see stars, that's all they are
When I hear songs, they sound like this one, so come on.
Oh, come on. Oh, come on. Oh, come on!

Well, that is it guys, that is all - five minutes in and I'm bored again
Ten years of this, I'm not sure if anybody understands
This one is not for the folks at home;
Sorry to leave, mom, I had to go
Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?

My heart is breaking for my sister and the con that she call "love"
When I look into my nephew's eyes...
Man, you wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from...
Some terrible nights... ah... ["nights" is confirmed by the band's Twitter page]

Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh,
Oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, whoa, oh, oh

The other night you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me
I called you up but we'd both agree

It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance... Oh...
It's for the best you didn't listen
It's for the best we get our distance... Oh...

  1. Olin miettiny että tiedänkö tän biisin (noi "what do I stand for" kohdat herätti jotain mielikuvia) ja kun nyt sain kuunneltua, niin olinhan mä tän aiemminkin kuullu! Ihana biisi, varsinki rakastan tota alkua, kahta ekaa säkeistöä. Kuulostaa niin törkeen hyvältä...

    1. Todellaki. Munki mielestä toi alku on paras. :D kuuntelen tätä tosi usein siivotessa, siitä saa sellasta energiaa.
