Needles & Pins

Canzone che ho conosciuto tramite un pezzo dei Megadeth, di cui era l’intro, e che tra gli autori ha Sonny Bono, questa Needles & Pins ha due versioni eccezionali: una dei The Searchers, che l’hanno lanciata, e quella dei Ramones.

The+Searchers

Il titolo sta a significare un momento di ansia e di eccitazione, quindi non ha direttamente nulla a che vedere con le spille e gli aghi. Diciamo che può corrispondere al nostro “stare sulle spine”. E ora testo e musica, con due video.

I saw her today, I saw her face
It was the face of love, and I knew
I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray, that they go away
And still it begins, needles and pins
Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide
Oh I thought I was smart, I stole her heart
I didn’t think I’d do, but now I see
She’s worth to him than me, let her go ahead
Take his love instead, and one day she will see
Just how to say please, and get down on her knees
Oh that’s how it begins, she’ll feel those needle and pins
Hurtin’ her, hurtin’ her
Why can’t stop, and tell myself I’m wrong, I’m wrong, so wrong
Why can’t I stand up, and tell myself I’m strong
Because, saw her today, I saw her face
It was the face of love, and I knew
I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray, that they go away
And still it begins, needles and pins
Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide
Needle and pins, needle and pins, needle and pins
