Celebrando il compleanno di Keith Moon:The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again , con testo e video

Il 23 agosto del 1946, nasceva a Londra uno dei più virtuosi batteristi del rock, il grande Keith Moon, membro fondamentale della band dei The Who.

Keith John Moon iniziò a suonare la batteria come autodidatta, mostrando fin da subito una straordinaria evoluzione dello stile, in cui il rock, il blues ed il jazz si univano a tutta la sua irruenza.
Grande senso del tempo, unito alla sua creatività, fu uno dei segreti del sound ritmico degli Who.
Morì il 7 settembre 1978, dopo avere assunto ben 32 pasticche di clometiazolo.

Per celebrare quello che sarebbe stato il suo compleanno, ho pensato di postarvi la canzone dei The Who, intitolata Won't Get Fooled Again, contenuta nell' album "Who's Next" del 1971, proponendola con il testo ed il video di Youtube.

Testo: The Who - Won't Get Fooled Again

We'll be fighting in the streets
With our children at our feet
And the morals that they worship will be gone
And the men who spurred us on
Sit in judgement of all wrong
They decide and the shotgun sings the song

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again

The change, it had to come il 23 agosto 1946 nasceva il batterista Keith Moon degli Who
We knew it all along
We were liberated from the fold, that's all
And the world looks just the same
And history ain't changed
'Cause the banners, they are flown in the next war

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
No, no!

I'll move myself and my family aside
If we happen to be left half alive
I'll get all my papers and smile at the sky
Though I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do ya?

There's nothing in the streets
Looks any different to me
And the slogans are replaced, by-the-bye
And the parting on the left
Are now parting on the right
And the beards have all grown longer overnight

I'll tip my hat to the new constitution
Take a bow for the new revolution
Smile and grin at the change all around
Pick up my guitar and play
Just like yesterday
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get fooled again
Don't get fooled again
No, no!

Yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Meet the new boss
Same as the old boss
