Buon compleanno Grace Slick : Starship – We Built This City

Oggi la cantante e musicista Grace Slick compie 78 anni. Vi posto il brano degli Starship, “We Built This City”, con testo e video.

Grace Barnett Wing, coniugata Slick, è nata ad Evanston (USA) il 30 ottobre 1939.

Nel 1965, durante una esibizione dei Jefferson Airplane, maturò l’ idea di formare una band con il proprio marito, nacquero così i The Great Society.

Nel 1966 la Slick entrò nei Jefferson Airplane, portando con se due brani che entrarono nella leggenda del rock, “White Rabbit” e “Somebody To Love”, veri inni psichedelici dell’era hippy.

Nel 1989 decise di abbandonare la musica, dedicandosi alla pittura ed alla difesa degli animali.

Ho sempre adorato Grace, per la sua energia, la sua voce, la sua bellezza ed il carisma.

Per celebrare il suo compleanno, ho pensato di postarvi il brano degli Starship, We Built This City.

La canzone è stata scritta da Bernie Taupin, Martin Page, Dennis Lambert e Peter Wolf, fu pubblicata come singolo nel 1985.

Testo: Starship – We Built This City

We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

Say you don’t know me, or recognize my face
Say you don’t care who goes to that kind of place
Knee deep in the hoopla, sinking in your fight
Too many runaways eating up the night

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don’t you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

Someone’s always playing corporation games
Who cares they’re always changing corporation names
We just want to dance here, someone stole the stage
They call us irresponsible, write us off the page

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don’t you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

It’s just another Sunday, in a tired old street
Police have got the choke hold, oh, then we just lost the beat

Who counts the money underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars
Don’t tell us you need us, ‘cause we’re just simple fools
Looking for America, coming through your schools

(I’m looking out over that Golden Gate bridge
Out on a gorgeous sunny Saturday and I’m seeing that bumper to bumper traffic)

Don’t you remember (remember)

(Here’s your favorite radio station, in your favorite radio city
The city by the bay, the city that rocks, the city that never sleeps)

Marconi plays the mamba, listen to the radio, don’t you remember
We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

We built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll
Built this city, we built this city on rock an’ roll

(We built, we built this city) built this city (we built, we built this city)
(Repeats out)
