17* L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.

Is a cool weekend to keep on with british rock bands, isn’t it? british rock/indie/pop/folk/bluegrass bands are always cool 🙂 just as today’s staring band called “Noah & the Whale”

The 5 members come from London and formed their band just 8 years ago but have already 4 albums (!)

Today’s song was launched in 2011 on their third album called “Last night on Earth” something you are actually able to infer by listening to the song itself 😉 which gots a perfect rhythm, background chorus that sound pretty good combined with the main voice and an amazing length of nearly 4 minutes, enough to enjoy and appreciate without getting bored.

The official music video show us at the beginning an old juke box playing music for a weak version of Marilyn Monroe faintly dancing between lights and shadows, mixed with men in suits moving nothing else than their mouths, it shows us the stereotype of a writer as a worried, lonely and implosive guy… at the end they surrender, giving up their past and understanding the thruth in the title’s acronym.

…And their ancestral lyrics :

Lisa likes brandy and the way it hits her lips
She’s a rock ‘n’ roll survivor with pendulum hips
She’s got deep brown eyes
That’ve seen it allWorking at a nightclub that was called The Avenue
The bar men used to call her “Little Lisa, Loney Tunes”
She went down on almost anyone

From the hard time living ’til the Chelsea days
From when her hair was sweet blonde ’til the day it turned gray
She said:

L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You’ve got more than money and sense, my friend
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don’t have now will come back again
You’ve got heart and you go in your own waySome people wear their history like a map on their face
And Joey was an artist just living out of case
But his best word was his letters home

His standard works of fiction about imaginary success
The chorus girls in neon were his closest things to friends
But to a writer, the truth is no big deal

From the hard time living to the sleepless nights
And the black and blue body from the weekend fights
He’d say:

L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
You’ve got more than money and sense, my friend
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way
L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.
What you don’t have now will come back again
You’ve got heart and you go in your own way
On my last night on earth, I won’t look to the sky
Just breathe in the air and blink in the light
On my last night on earth, I’ll pay a high price
To have no regrets and be done with my life
