Lyrics (X)

Imogen es una de los muchos artistas que obtuvieron gran exposición gracias a que sonaron en la serie O.C.
donde sonaron dos singles de su segundo disco, editado ya hace 3 años.

El primero da bastante repelús, intenta sonar tanto a Alanis Morisette que incluso canta como ella, y el segundo suena a Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, o cualquier artista femenina del palo. Por supuesto no le llega a la suela del zapato a ningúna de las dos.

Lo que sonó en O.C. fue sin duda lo mejor que ha escrito. ·Goodnight and Go" una ligera canción con muchos guiños electrónicos, y la que nos ocupa hoy, una tremenda e inusual balada (es prácticamente una acapella pasada por el vocoder) que me pone los pelos de punta cada vez que la escucho.

Imogen Heap - Hide & Seek

Where are we?
What the hell is going on?
The dust has only just begun to form
Crop circles in the carpet
Sinking feeling

Spin me 'round again
And rub my eyes
This can't be happening
When busy streets amess with people
Would stop to hold their heads heavy

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines
All those years
They were here first

Oily marks appear on walls
Where pleasure moments hung before
The takeover
The sweeping insensitivity of this
Still life

Hide and seek
Trains and sewing machines (oh, you won't catch me around here)
Blood and tears
They were here first

Mmm whatd'ya say?
Mmm that you only meant well? Well, of course you did
Mmm whatd'ya say?
Mmm that it's all for the best? Of course it is
Mmm whatd'ya say?
Mmm that it's just what we need? You decided this
Mmm whatd'ya say?
Mmm what did she say?

Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
Mid-sweet talk newspaper word cut-outs (paper word cut outs)
Speak no feeling, no I don't believe you (no I don't believe you)
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit

(Hide and Seek) Ransom notes keep falling out your mouth
Mid-sweet talk newspaper word cut-outs
(Hide and Seek) Speak no feeling no I don't believe you
You don't care a bit, you don't care a bit (You don't care a bit)
(Hide and Seek) No, no, you don't care a bit
No, no, you don't care a bit
(Hide and Seek) No, no, you don't care a bit
You don't care a bit
You don't care a bit

La banda sonora de The OC ha sido para mí la mejor que ha sonado nunca en una serie. Menuda selección. Allí se encumbraron The Killers, Imogen Heap, Rachael Yamagata o Death Cab.

Esta canción es cojonuda :)
