Motörhead – “Bad Religion”

Thou who wouldst make us devils
Thou shalt not poison me
The world hath been persuaded to believe thy heresy

I spit in the eye of Satan
And I will spit in thine
The devils that surround thee
Liveth only in thine eye

Bad Religion, Bad Religion
I need no gods or devils, I need no pagan rights
Bad religion, Bad religion
I need no burning crosses to illuminate my nights

HEY, HEY, You hear me now
You hear me now
HEY, HEY, For thou art Judas
The mark of Cain be on thy brow

Evangelistic Nazis, you cannot frighten me
The name you take in vain shall judge you for eternity

I spit in the eye of Satan
Spit right in your eye too
You are the spooks you’re chasing
You know not what you do

Bad religion, Bad religion
I know you lie, I know you lie
Bad religion, Bad religion
Thieves and liars
Cross my heart I hope you die

If there be such a being
Then thou art Anti-christ
Turn men against their children
Turn beauty into vice
I say thy God shall smite thee
He will perceive thy lust
His wrath shall fall upon thee
Thou that betray his thrust

Bad religion, Bad religion
I say that thou art liars, Thy souls shall not be saved
Bad religion, Bad religion
Here are the days of thunder, The days that thou hast made

HEY, HEY
Base seducers, I see thy greed
HEY, HEY
I am more fit for glory, Than any ten of thee


This is your life

And you open the door and you step inside
We’re inside our hearts

Now imagine that your pain is a white ball of healing light
That’s right – your pain, the pain itself is a white ball of healing light

I don’t think so

This is your life
Good to the last drop
Doesn’t get any better than this

This is your life and its ending one minute at a time

This isn’t a seminar
This is no weekend retreat
Where you are now you can’t even imagine what the bottom will be like

Only after disaster can we be resurrected
Its only after you’ve lost everything that you are free to do anything
Nothing is static
Everything is evolving
Everything is falling apart

This is your life
Doesn’t get any better than this
This is your life
And its ending one minute at a time

You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake
You are the same decaying organic matter as everything else
We are all part of the same compost heap
We are the all singing, all dancing crap of the world

You are not your bank account
You are not the clothes you wear
You are not the contents of your wallet
You are not your bowel cancer

You are not your grand latte
You are not the car you drive
You are not your fucking khakis

You have to give up
You have to give up
You have to realise that someday you will die
Until you know that, you are useless

I say never let me be complete
I say may I never be content
I say deliver me from Swedish furniture
I say deliver me from clever art
I say deliver me from clear skin and perfect teeth
I say you have to give up
I say evolve, and let the chips fall where they may

This is your life
Doesn’t get any better than this
This is your life
And its ending one minute at a time

You have to give up
You have to give up

I want you to hit me as hard as you can!

Welcome to Fight Club
If this is your first night, you have to fight


Morricone – “Un sacco bello”

Musica dei titoli di coda del primo film di Verdone, Un sacco bello, del 1980. Mitica commedia con alcuni dei suoi più famosi personaggi, fu prodotta da Sergio Leone, che ne affidò la colonna sonora a Ennio Morricone. Questo brano è uno dei più malinconici che mi sia capitato di sentire. Tra l’altro ho vissuto cinque anni a Roma e ho avuto una disavventura più o meno simile con una Marisol de noantri…. 😀 Ammirevole la tecnica del fischiatore, un suono pulito, chiaro e costante.
