WORDS UP

.









WORD UP, cantata nell'originale dal gruppo CAMEO negli anni ottanta, fú riproposta in versione Rock dal gruppo GUN negli anni novanta.
Preferisco di solito gli originali. Ma in questo caso tendo di piú per la versione rock dei GUN. In piú il video dei Gun ha vinto in quell'anno il best video music award!

Comunque, una canzone che a me piace molto!
Incollo i due video: del cover, e dell'originale :)

WORD UP - GUN (1994)



WORD UP - CAMEO (1986)


You pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you
so tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister, and your mama too
cuz we're about to go down
and you know just what to do
wave your hands in the air like you don't care
gilde by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mama
come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody says
when you hear the call you've got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it, you know that you'll be heard

Now all you sucker DJ's who think you're fly
there's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
why you put on those airs and you act real cool
but you got to realise that you're acting like fools
If there's music we can use it
we're free to dance
we don't have the for physichological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mama
come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody says
when you hear the call you've got to get it underway

Dial "L" for Love (x4)

W-O-R-D up (x4)

all you sucker DJ's who think you're fly
there's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
why you put on those airs and you act real cool
but you got to realise that you're acting like fools

No romance, no romance, no romance for me mama
come on baby tell me what's the word

Word up everybody says
when you hear the call you've got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it, you know that you'll be heard

Word up everybody says
when you hear the call you've got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word
No matter where you say it, you know that you'll be heard

Io prima che uscisse la versione Rock dei Gun, conoscevo quella di Cameo. Ma dopo che usci la nuova, mi piaceva di piú.

Mi piace di piú il Rock :)

Un abbraccio Lys,
Salva

Me parece que una de las Spice Girls hizo una version de este clasico, Scary, me parece. Buenos los dos videos. Muchas gracias.

Saludos desde Londres.

Si é vero Cuban. Melanie B. dei Spice Girls ha fatto anche una versione. Ma ti garantisco che era terribile, brrrrr scaryyyyyy.

Saluti da Colonia,
Salva :)
