Sigo musical. Esta vez con los maestros, Pink Floyd. Algún día me sentaré e intentaré expresar lo que me hace sentir su música. Hoy solo quiero poner la letra de Echoes, una de la canciones que más me han gustado siempre. Una verdadera obra de arte de 23 minutos, divididos en varias partes.

La melodía de las partes con letra, al principio y al final del tema, es una de las más emocionantes, envolventes y cautivadoras que he escuchado nunca.

Overhead the albatross Hangs motionless upon the air And deep beneath the rolling waves In labyrinths of coral caves An echo of a distant time Comes willowing across the sand And everything is green and submarine. And no one called us to the land And no one knows the where's or why's. Something stirs and something tries Starts to climb toward the light. Strangers passing in the street By chance two separate glances meet And I am you and what I see is me. And do I take you by the hand And lead you through the land And help me understand The best I can. And no one called us to the land And no one crosses there alive. No one speaks and no one tries No one flies around the sun.... Almost everyday you fall Upon my waking eyes, Inviting and inciting me To rise. And through the window in the wall Come streaming in on sunlight wings A million bright ambassadors of morning. And no one sings me lullabyes And no one makes me close my eyes So I throw the windows wide And call to you across the sky.... Echoes (Waters, Wright, Mason, Gilmour)

Una versión especialmente buena es la que grabaron para el documental Live at Pompeii, en 1972. Podéis ver la primera (a y b) y la segunda parte de esta maravilla en YouTube.
