"Bombita" Rodríguez (1)



Notas para no argentinos: Palito Ortega fue el principal referente de la música pop en Argentina durante las décadas de 1960 y de 1970. Tacuara era un grupúsculo neofascista que en la década de 1960, actuó en Argentina; su ideología asociaba nacionalidad y confesionalidad (católica) de forma similar a como lo ha hecho la derecha española durante los siglos XIX y XX. Los militantes montoneros, en su inmensa mayoría, tenían sus orígenes ideológicos en el catolicismo y sociales en la clase media-alta e incluso en la clase alta.

Coldplay: "Viva la Vida"



I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sleep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own.

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand.

I hear Jerusalem bells a' ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing:
"Be my mirror, my sword, and shield,
My missionaries in a foreign field".

For some reason I can't explain
Once you go there was never
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world.

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become.

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh, who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a' ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing:
"Be my mirror, my sword, and shield,
My missionaries in a foreign field".

For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world.
