Prescindir
Poco importa. Igual todo terminará

El video me parece precioso, una combinación de música intensa e imágenes que tienen parte de distopía y parte creepy (muy apropiado). Paso el link de otros trabajos del creador del video, Gastón Viñas, porque valen la pena. Vayan acá para ver más cosas.

Y porque la canción de Radiohead es la que más me gusta de Hail to The Thief (disco que se suele pasar por alto). Dejo acá la letra, asi saborean un poco la poesía extraña de A Wolf at the Door, lo que más me gusta es imaginarme al lobo -teléfono en mano- hablando con Thom Yorke.


Drag him out your window
Dragging out the dead
Singing I miss you
Snakes and ladders flip the lid
Out pops the cracker
Smacks you in the head
Knifes you in the neck
Kicks you in the teeth
Steel toe caps
Takes all your credit cards
Get up get the gunge
Get the eggs
Get the flan in the face
The flan in the face
The flan in the face
Dance you fucker dance you fucker
Don't you dare
Don't you dare
Don't you flan in the face
Take it with the love its given
Take it with a pinch of salt
Take it to the taxman
Let me back
Let me back
I promise to be good
Don't look in the mirror at the face you don't recognize
Help me, call the doctor, put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside

I keep the wolf from the door
But he calls me up
Calls me on the phone
Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
Steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom
And I'll never see them again if I squeal to the cops. . . .

Walking like giant cranes
And with my X-ray eyes I strip you naked
in a tight little world
and are you on the list?
Stepford wives who are we to complain?
Investments and dealers
Investments and dealers
Cold wives and mistresses
Cold wives and Sunday papers
City boys in First Class don't know we're born little
Someone else is gonna come and clean it up
Born and raised for the job
Someone always does
I wish you'd get up get over
get up, get over and turn your tape off

I keep the wolf from the door
But he calls me up
Calls me on the phone
Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up
Steal all my children if I don't pay the ransom
And I'll never see them again if I squeal to the cops

So I just go ooh ooh ooh ooh

sí, ayer tuve una tarde Radiohead. Esta canción me tuvo hipnotizada cuando me compré Hail to the Thief. Ahora que ya pasó un tiempo me doy cuenta de que sigue siendo buenísima. Y el video es hermoso
