Les adieux à George Bush par Holmes

Holmes est un auteur compositeur qui vit en Californie. Sa musique, c’est du rock ou de la pop. Vous avez pu entendre des morceaux qu’il a composés en regardant Sex & the City ou encore Nip Tuck. Pourquoi est-ce que je vous parle de lui seulement maintenant ? Peut-être parce qu’il m’a envoyé aujourd’hui un vidéo clip de sa chanson, Not a politic song.

Jetez-y un œil et ouvrez grand vos oreilles !

Not a Political Song

How could you tell me that you did all you could?
How could you say you’ve done the things that you should?
If ever there was a reason no to boast or be smug…
Wipe that pitiful smirk off your mug.

How did it feel to have the world at your feet
just to lose it, abuse it,
then rinse and repeat.
Oh, no, wrong turn again
When will you learn
When will you learn.

Chorus:
This is not a political song
You ought to sing along
This is not a political song
You ought to know right from wrong
Fat cats sit atop a crumbling house,
self assured
I’ve been waiting far too long
This is not a political song

How could you let them sit for days
when you know?
Doesn’t a conscience make you get up and go
And do anything, everything,
limits unknown
Man, their one of you own
We’re one of your own.

Chorus:
This is not a political song
You ought to sing along
This is not a political song
You ought to know right from wrong
Fat cats sit atop a crumbling house,
self assured
I’ve been waiting far too long
This is not a political song

His story is history
His story is history
His story is history
His story is history
You’re history, you’re history

Chorus:
This is not a political song
You ought to sing along
This is not a political song
You ought to know right from wrong
Fat cats sit atop a crumbling house,
self assured
I’ve been waiting far too long
(You know that) I’ve been waiting far too long
I’ve been waiting far too long
This is not a political song

Vous avez dit humour ? Holmes n’en manque pas, n’est-ce pas ? Alors, farewell Bush, hello Obama.

Quelques critiques américaines :

“Stacked with catchy songs that glisten with pop sheen… lush delicate and infectious… Just about as good as it gets”
First Coast News

“Holmes is a singer-songwriter who pens the kind of melodic, unpretentious songs that scream for usage in film and TV. There’s a humor, wistfulness and universality that would compare well with some of the best of Ben Folds or Beck”
Los Angeles Times

“Seek this music out and your soul will be shaked and baked”
PowerPopaholic

Mais pourquoi Holmes ne passe-t-il pas sur une scène française ?
