# CXXXIX - E foi espectacular!


(Mick 'Red' Hucknall - No concerto, agradado com o público)


Foi um espanto quando tocaram "Holding back the years", "Money's too right to mention" (de "Picture Book", de 1985); "If you don't know me by now" ("Men and women", de 1987); "Stars" e "Something got me started" ("Stars", de 1991)... Eram cerca de sete mil vozes em uníssono!

Para além destes clássicos, houve momentos em que a interpretação foi soberba. Para mim, ouver Mick Hucknall a cantar o "Positively 4th street" de Bob Dylan foi fantástico!!!!!

Fica aqui a versão deste tema do cd Home (de 2003):


***********************


Positively 4th street - Bob Dylan

You got a lotta nerve / To say you are my friend
When I was down / You just stood there grinning
You got a lotta nerve / To say you got a helping hand to lend
You just want to be on / The side that's winning

You say I let you down / You know it's not like that
If you're so hurt / Why then don't you show it
You say you lost your faith / But that's not where it's at
You had no faith to lose / And you know it

I know the reason / That you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd / You're in with
Do you take me for such a fool / To think I'd make contact
With the one who tries to hide / What he don't know to begin with

You see me on the street / You always act surprised
You say, "How are you?" "Good luck"
But you don't mean it / When you know as well as me
You'd rather see me paralyzed / Why don't you just come out once
And scream it

No, I do not feel that good / When I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief / Perhaps I'd rob them
And now I know you're dissatisfied / With your position and your place
Don't you understand / It's not my problem

I wish that for just one time / You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment / I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time / You could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is / To see you
