Canciones para entender la historia de mi país

1. Temps era temps, Joan Manuel Serrat

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LoDJrDeYU4 

Temps era temps
que vam sortir de l’ou
amb l’or a Moscú,
la pau al coll,
la flota al moll
i la llengua al cul,
amb els símbols arraconats,
l’aigua a la font,
les restriccions
i l’home del sac.

Temps era temps
que més que bons o dolents
eren els meus i han estat els únics.
Temps d’estraperlo i tramvies,
farinetes per sopar
i comuna i galliner a la galeria.

Temps d‘“Una, Grande y Libre”,
"Metro Goldwyn Mayer",
"Lo toma o lo deja",
"Gomas y lavajes"
Quintero, León i Quiroga;
Panellets i penellons;
Basora, César, Kubala, Moreno i Manchón.

Temps era temps
que d’hora i malament
ho vam saber tot:
qui eren els reis,
d’on vénen els nens
i què menja el llop.
Tot barrejat amb el Palé,
i la Formación del
Espíritu Nacional
i els primers divendres de mes.

Senyora Francis, m’entén?
amb aquests coneixements,
què es podia esperar de nosaltres?
Si encara no sabem, senyora,
què serem quan siguem grans
els fills d’un temps,
els fills d’un país orfe

Fills d‘“Una, Grande y Libre”,
"Metro Goldwyn Mayer",
"Lo toma o lo deja",
"Gomas y lavajes"
Quintero, León i Quiroga;
Panellets i penellons;
Basora, César, Kubala, Moreno i Manchón.

"I just think it [time] goes so bloody fast… I just really can’t believe how quickly it goes, and I think that we waste a lot of it. And I also think that’s the normal thing to do: people waste time. And that’s the only way I guess you can differentiate the good times from the bad."
John Wayne said about her: "One of the smartest of all Hollywood’s tempting women. Betty never flaunts her loveliness, nor her intellect. A man in her presence is conscious only of her charm."
Rest in peace, beautiful soul.

París es un centro, entendés, un mandala que hay que recorrer sin dialéctica, un laberinto donde las fórmulas pragmáticas no sirven más que para perderse. Entonces un cogito que sea como respirar París, entrar en él dejándolo entrar, neuma y no logos.

“Imagine an eye unruled by man-made laws of perspective, an eye unprejudiced by compositional logic, an eye which does not respond to the name of everything but which must know each object encountered in life through an adventure of perception. How many colors are there in a field of grass to the crawling baby unaware of ‘Green’? How many rainbows can light create for the untutored eye? How aware of variations in heat waves can that eye be? Imagine a world alive with incomprehensible objects and shimmering with an endless variety of movement and innumerable gradations of color. Imagine a world before the ‘beginning was the word.”
