#MinutsMusicals del 1974 amb "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)" de The Rolling Stones


A vegades no calen més arguments: només és rock'n'roll, però m'agrada!

"It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)" és una cançó de The Rolling Stones publicada l'any 1974 primer com a senzill i posteriorment formant part del 12è disc de la banda, "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll".

La història d'aquesta cançó, però, comença l'any 1973 a Richmond, en un estudi de gravació de la casa del guitarrista Ron Wood, aleshores guitarrista de "The Faces" (amb Rod Stewart) i després de formar part dels grups "The Birds" i "The Jeff Beck Group".

Wood havia convidat a l'estudi, entre d'altres músics, a Mick Jagger i Keith Richards; aquell dia també hi havia David Bowie... Fruit d'aquella trobada musical Jagger i Richards van escriure la cançó, inspirada per Ron Wood, i van gravar-la allà mateix amb David Bowie acompanyant a Mick Jagger a les veus, i amb Willie Weeks al baix i Kenney Jones (Small Faces i, desprès, The Who) a la bateria.

Per al disc la cançó van gravar-la, en una versió molt semblant a la gravada inicialment, els integrants de "The Rolling Stones" de l'època: Mick Jagger, Keith Richard, Mick Taylor, Charlie Watts i Bill Wyman.

El senzill va pujar com l'escuma a les llistes d'èxits, assolint el 16è lloc Estats Units i el 10è al Regne Unit.

Després de la publicació del disc l'any 1974 el guitarrista Mick Taylor va deixar The Rolling Stones; el vídeoclip de la cançó "It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)" és precisament el darrer clip en el que apareix el fins llavors guitarrista del grup. L'any 1975 Ron Wood deixa "The Faces" i entra a formar part, fins avui, de "The Rolling Stones"!

El que deia al principi...

només és rock'n'roll, però m'agrada!

Gaudiu-la!



It's Only Rock 'n' Roll (But I Like It)

If I could stick my pen in my heart
Spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy you? Would it slide on by you?
Would you think the boy is strange? Ain't he strange?

If I could win you, if I could sing you
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried? If I cried

I said, I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it
I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh well, I like it, ooh, I like it, I like it
I said, can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust?
Would it help to ease the pain? Ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy you? Would it slide on by you?
Would you think the boy's insane? He's insane

I said, I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it
I said, I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh well, I like it, yeah, I like it, I like it
I said, can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

And do you think that you're the only girl around?
I bet you think that you're the only woman in town, oh yeah

I said, I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it
I said, I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it, ooh
I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it, yeah
I know it's only Rock 'N Roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do

Oh well, I like it, I like it
I like it, I like it, I like it, I like it

Only Rock 'N Roll but I like it
Only Rock 'N Roll but I like it
Only Rock 'N Roll but I like it

Yeah, I like it, ooh, I like it
I like it, oh yeah, I like it
