Barcelona -Ed Sheeran

Aquesta setmana a Recomanacions us portem una de les cançons del nou disc titulat Divide d’Ed Sheeran.

La cançó es diu Barcelona, ja que està dedicada a la capital de Catalunya. Al cantant li agrada molt la ciutat, fins i tot  s’ha tatuat la Sagrada Família!

El cantant sense voler-ho ha generat polèmica amb la cançó, per les paraules que diu en castellà. Algunes persones creuen que no hauria de dir-les, ja que a Barcelona no es parla així, i que el cantant diu coses que no caracteritzen a la ciutat.

Well get up up on the dancefloor tonight
I’ve got two left feet and a bottle of red wine
Making me feel like the beat and the bassline
Are in my blood, both hands upon her waistline
Get on up baby dance to the rhythm of the music
Don’t care what the DJ chooses
Get lost in the rhythm of me
Place don’t close until we wanna leave it

You and I we’re flying on an aeroplane tonight
We’re going, somewhere where the sun is shining bright
Just close your eyes, and let’s pretend we’re dancing in the street
In Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona

Well get up up on the dancefloor, move, it’s a Saturday night
I fell in love with the sparkle in the moonlight
Reflected in your beautiful eyes, I guess that is destiny doing it right
And dance like they do in the Mediterranean
Spin you around me again and again and
You’re like something that God has sent me
I want you baby, solamente

You and I we’re flying on an aeroplane tonight
We’re going, somewhere where the sun is shining bright
Just close your eyes, and let’s pretend we’re dancing in the street
In Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona
Oh Barcelona

So let’s pretend we’re dancing in the street
In Barcelona
Las Ramblas, I’ll meet you, we’ll dance around La Sagrada Familia
Drinking Sangria, mi niña, te amo mi cariño
Mamacita, rica, si tú, te adoro señorita
Los otros, viva la vida,
Come on let’s be free in Barcelona
Las Ramblas, I’ll meet ya, come on and dance with me, in Barcelona
Drinking Sangria, I just want to be in Barcelona
Mamacita, rica, feel that summer breeze in Barcelona,
Los otros, viva la vida, siempre vida

Castle On The Hill – Ed Sheeran

Aquesta setmana a Musipèdia, us portem una altra cançó de Ed Sheeran.

Castle On The Hill significa ‘castell al turó’. El tema del senzill tracta de la ciutat natal de Ed Sheeran, Framlingham i recorda històries de “fumar cigarrets” i “emborratxar-se amb els seus amics” en aquest lloc. El castell esmentat en la cançó és el castell de Framlingham, i al gener, Ed Sheeran va ser convidat a cantar-hi.

When I was six years old I broke my leg
I was running from my brother and his friends
Tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass
As I rolled down
I was younger then
Take me back to when
I found my heart and broke it here
Made friends and lost them through the years
And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long
I know, I’ve grown
But I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way
Driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer
And I miss the way you make me feel
And it’s real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Fifteen years old and smoking handrolled cigarettes
Running from the law through the backfields
And getting drunk with my friends
Had my first kiss on a Friday night
I don’t reckon I did it right
I was younger then
Take me back to when we found
Weekend jobs when we got paid
And buy cheap spirits
And drink them straight
Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long
Oh, how we’ve grown
I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way
Driving at 90 down those country lanes
Singing to Tiny Dancer
And I miss the way you make me feel
And it’s real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

One friend left to sell clothes
One works down by the coast
One had two kids but lives alone
One’s brother overdosed
Ones already on his second wife
Ones just barely getting by
But these people raised me
And I can’t wait to go home

And I’m on my way
And I still remember those country lanes
When we did not know the answers
And I miss the way you make me feel
And it’s real
We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill
Over the castle on the hill

Anglès:

When I was six years old I broke my leg

I was running from my brother and his friends

And tasted the sweet perfume of the mountain grass I rolled down

I was younger then, take me back to when I

Found my heart and broke it here

Made friends and lost them through the years

And I’ve not seen the roaring fields in so long, I know I’ve grown

But I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way

Driving at 90 down those country lanes

Singing to “Tiny Dancer”

And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real

We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Fifteen years old and smoking hand-rolled cigarettes

Running from the law through the backfields and getting drunk with my friends

Had my first kiss on a Friday night, I don’t reckon that I did it right

But I was younger then, take me back to when

We found weekend jobs, when we got paid

We’d buy cheap spirits and drink them straight

Me and my friends have not thrown up in so long, oh how we’ve grown

But I can’t wait to go home

I’m on my way

Driving at 90 down those country lanes

Singing to “Tiny Dancer”

And I miss the way you make me feel, and it’s real

We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

One friend left to sell clothes

One works down by the coast

One had two kids but lives alone

One’s brother overdosed

One’s already on his second wife

One’s just barely getting by

But these people raised me

And I can’t wait to go home

And I’m on my way, I still remember

These old country lanes

When we did not know the answers

And I miss the way you make me feel, it’s real

We watched the sunset over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

Over the castle on the hill

Castellà:

Cuando tenía seis años, me rompí una pierna,

iba huyendo de mi hermano y sus amigos,

probé el dulce perfume de la hierba,

mientras rodaba montaña abajo.

Entonces era más joven,

llévame de vuelta a cuando

encontré mi corazón y se rompió aquí,

hide amigos y los perdí a lo largo de los años.

Y no he visto los ardientes campos desde hace tiempo,

lo sé, he crecido,

pero no puedo esperar a llegar a casa.

Estoy de camino,

conduciendo a 90 por estrechas carreteras de campo,

cantando Tiny Dancer

Y echo de menos cómo me haces sentir,

y es real,

vimos la puesta de sol sobre el castillo de la colina.

15 años de edad, y fumando cigarrillos de liar,

escapando de la policía por la parte de atrás,

y emborrachándome con mis amigos.

Tuve mi primer beso un viernes por la noche,

no puedo decir que lo hiciera bien,

entonces era joven,

llévame de vuelta a cuando encontramos

trabajos de fin de semana, nos pagaban

y comprábamos licores baratos

y directamente nos los bebíamos.

Mis amigos y yo, hace mucho que no vomitamos,

oh, cómo hemos crecido,

no puedo esperar a llegar a casa.

Estoy de camino,

conduciendo a 90 por estrechas carreteras de campo,

cantando “Tiny Dancer”.

Y echo de menos cómo me haces sentir,

y es real,

vimos la puesta de sol sobre el castillo de la colina.

Sobre el castillo de la colina.

Sobre el castillo de la colina.

Sobre el castillo de la colina.

Un amigo se marchó para vender ropa,

uno trabaja junto a la costa,

uno tuvo dos niños, pero vive solo,

el hermano de uno tuvo una sobredosis,

uno ya va por la segunda esposa,

uno apenas consigue salir adelante,

pero esta gente me crió,

y no puedo esperar a llegar a casa.

Y estoy de camino,

y todavía recuerdo estas estrechas carreteras de campo,

cuando no sabíamos las respuestas.

Y echo de menos cómo me haces sentir,

y es real,

vimos la puesta de sol sobre el castillo de la colina.

Sobre el castillo de la colina.

Sobre el castillo de la colina.
