  1. No la conocía pero me gusta su voz, su forma de cantar peculiar, como si cayera lentamente, perezosa. Estoy escuchando "Don't make lies", es preciosa la música.
    Gracias Hélder, buena noche en clave de...do?

    Bonne nuit, Colo,
    boa noite,
    buenas noches.


    “Lize”:

    «They don’t make lies
    Like they used to
    They don’t make lies
    Like they used to
    You don’t make lies
    Like you used to
    You don’t make lies
    Like you used to

    In the old days
    You took pride in your lies
    You used to pay more attention
    To details
    Not these flimsy things
    You hand me
    Nowadays

    They don’t make lies
    Like they used to
    They don’t make lies
    Like they used to
    You don’t make lies
    Like you used to
    You don’t make lies
    Like you used to

    They used to be stronger
    They used to last longer
    You used to pay more attention
    To detail
    Nowadays the lies that get made
    Just fall apart

    They don’t make lies
    Like they used to
    They don’t make lies
    Like they used to
    No you don’t make lies
    Like you used to
    You don’t make lies
    Like you used to

    I used to be able
    To live off your lies».


    A fines de septiembre de 2005,
    asistí al concierto de Smog
    entonces, Bill Callahan con Joanna Newsom
    en Lisboa.

    La niebla tóxica vino al amanecer;
    el doctor no llegó a tiempo de asistir.
