DRINKING WINE IN THE AFTERNOON (Franz Ferdinand 2005)

TANTI CARI AUGURI SORELLONA!

Alex Capranos, cantante, Bob Hardy, bassista, Nick McCarthy e Paul thompson, scelgono il nome della band: Franz Ferdinand, come quel Francesco Ferdinando d’Asburgo che tutti conosciamo, il motivo della scelta dicono sia l’allitterazione presente nel nome, e continua Alex “fondamentalmente un nome dovrebbe suonare bene, come la musica”

Penso che i Franz Ferdinand non siano un gruppo pretenzioso, indie rock un pochetto ma gente semplice.

La canzone è stata scritta dal cantante mentre si trovava in Nuova Zelanda.

“I wrote another song, about Drinking Wine In The Afternoon, because, well, that’s what I was doing: sitting, drinking wine and playing my guitar. That’s a simple thing to do, but one of my favourites.”

So this is summer
And the Calor gas is running low
But I don’t mind
I’m doing things and doing them with you

Well you know he’s gonna
want his rent tonight
But we’ll have to tell him
Haddows swallowed all the rent this month

(Haddows dovrebbe essere un’ enoteca…ma mi piace immaginare che sia un supermercato)

So summer stains
a sky with inky swirls
that bring the thunder low
But I don’t mind,
I’m doing things and doing them with you

And if you’re smart you’ll put that book back down
You’ll drag me to the floor,
drag me down for more

Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Dootdoot n doo
Drinking wine
Drinking wine in the afternoon
Dootdoot n doo

Tomorrow’s Thursday
That’s my day of work
That’s my day of walking up the
Maryhill road making up
Some lie about some job applied for

When I’ve been drinking wine
Oh I’ve been drinking wine in the afternoon
Dootdoot n doo

Fifty regal filters left their filthy butts behind
Left their blackened heads down in the ashes
That’s the last before
They’re pulled apart and placed within the papers
for a drag
A fag deserves a second life
Deserves a second life
Don’t we all
Don’t we all
Don’t we all
Don’t we all

Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon
Love drinking wine
Love drinking wine in the afternoon

Bottle of wine, bottle of wine..

Due notizie utili: Drinking è presente nel secondo album dei Franz Ferdinand,You could have it so much better, lo stesso di Walkaway, altro pezzo a me caro.

Buon ascolto e buona giornata!

Marta
