Queen II


No he gosat traduïr aquest àlbum, he cregut que no tenia sentit, i he mantingut el nom de la banda (hagués estat ridícul titular el post "Reina II"). Bé, ahir dissabte vaig obtenir la vuitena entrega de la discografia de Queen. Un disc del qual només coneixia una cançó (Seven Seas of Rhye). Va ser el segon disc del grup, de l'any 1973. Un disc que es veu que tenia la cara "blanca", amb "Procession", "Father to son", "White Queen (As it began)", "Some day one day" (totes de May fins aquí) i "The loser in the end" (Taylor), i tot seguit la cara negra amb tot de composicions de Mercury: "Ogre Battle", "The fairy feller's master-stroke", "Nevermore","The march of the black queen"(llarguíssima), "Funny how love is" i "Seven seas of rhye" per a acabar ( i que va ser l'únic single del disc).
De les cançons que he escoltat, he pensat en posar "Father to son", la més coneguda "seven seas of rhye", una de les favorites dels fans com és "The march of the black queen", però finalment he triat la reina blanca: "White Queen (as it began)".
Espero que us agradi tant com a mi.
White Queen (as it began)
So sad her eyes
Smiling dark eyes
So sad her eyes
As it began
On such a breathless night as this
Upon my brow the lightest kiss
I walked alone
And all around the air did say
My lady soon will stir this way
In sorrow known
The white queen walks and
The night grows pale
Stars of lovingmess in her hair
Needing - unheard
Pleading - one word
So sad my eyes
She cannot see
How did thee fare, what have thee seen
The mother of the willow green
I call her name
And ’neath her window have
I stayed
I loved the footsteps that she made
And when she came
White queen how my heart did ache
And dry my lips no word would make
So still I wait
My goddess hear my darkest fear
I speak too late
It’s for evermore that I wait
Dear friend goodbye
No tear in my eyes
So sad it ends
As it began
