La canzone del giorno: The Hives - A Little More For Little You


Restiamo in tema post punk revival: oggi parliamo degli Hives.
Si tratta di un quintetto proveniente dalla Svezia, formatosi nel 1993. Il loro primo album, "Barely Legal", è stato pubblicato nel 1997. In tutto gli Hives hanno pubblicato 4 album, l'ultimo nel 2007, The Black And White Album che gli ha definitivamente consacrati nel novero delle grandi band.
La musica degli Hives spazia dal puro garage rock al punk: su tutti spicca il cantante, Pelle Almqvist
con la sua faccia strafottente e la sua voce unica.

Ma gli Hives non sono soltanto una band che ha pubblicato 4 album davvero ben fatti: sono anche una delle migliori band da vedere dal vivo. Caratteristica che li contraddistingue è il suonare sempre vestiti con giacche particolari e sempre in bianco e nero.
Anche oggi per me è difficile consigliarvi un loro pezzo. Potrei farvi ascoltare "Tick Tick Boom", un successo mondiale, ma vi farò ascoltare il pezzo che me li ha fatti conoscere,      "A Little More For Little You", contenuto nel loro terzo album, "Tyrannosaurus Hives".
Aspetto vostri commenti... Come sempre, buon ascolto...

Testo canzone: The Hives - A Little More For Little You

You'll never get it right
They got a hundred lies for you
And when they pass them out
You gotta give of take a few
And be just the same
A head in the crowd but behind the game
Oh well, you never can tell
Such a clever kid
But I see what's wrong with you
It's all you ever did
Take lies and believe them true (too)
Knew it all along
Another act and a truth gone wrong 
Oh no
It ain't my Hollywood
I went on strike when the union said I would
Had a sign in my hand cause the times were no good
All this time all they ever told me too was to get a little lie to ring a little true
I went on the strike when the union said I said i should
Had a sign in my hand cause the times were no good 
And all this time they ever told me too was to get a little more for a little you
And maybe you're alright
And maybe I don't have a clue 
Yeah, maybe black is white
And maybe black is white too
But it's all the same
You don't get the picture your getting framed
You took the bait and now it's too late
You didn't turn out right
Just look at you
You had the biggest plans
But no way to carry through
It was all an act
And now you can't stick to the facts
Oh no
It ain't my Hollywood
I went on strike when the union said I would 
Had a sign in my hand cause the times were no good
And all this time all they ever told me too was to get a little lie to ring a little true
You spent your time just like they said you should now
Those marks on your face just don't look any good 
And all this time all that they told you to was get a little more for little you
