New York

A la tercera va la vencida, ya tenemos los billetes para ir a NY.

Por fin voy a poder pasear por el plató de cine más grande del mundo. En Nueva York se han rodado miles de películas y si tuviera que intentar pasar por todos los sitios que he visto en muchas de ellas no tendría suficiente con la semana entera que estaremos allí.  Tengo ganas de pasear por Central Park, cruzar el puente de Brooklyn, subir al Empire State, ver la estatua de la libertad, el MOMA, Broadway, … tengo que ir preparando las rutas para no dejarme nada. Aunque bueno, estoy seguro de que no será la última vez que vaya por allí.

Si es que la mayoría de las series que más me han gustado en los últimos años se desarrollaban en Nueva York, Friends, Cómo Conocí a Vuestra Madre, Seinfeld… y al final resulta que aunque quiera no me podré tomar un café en Central Perk o en el McClarens. Pero qué importa.

Hay cientos de canciones que hablan de esta ciudad. Podía haber elegido desde el New York, New York de Sinatra, a Un día más en Nueva York de Sidonie… Pero esta canción de Alicia Keys, en sus dos versiones con o sin Jayz (prefiero sin) es simplemente genial.

Alicia Keys – Empire State of Mind (Part II Broken Down)

Ooh, ooh
New York
Ooh, ooh
New York

Grew up in a town
That is famous as a place of movie scenes
Noise is always loud
There are sirens all around
And the streets are mean
If I could make it here
I could make it anywhere
That’s what they say
Seeing my face in lights
Or my name in marquees found down Broadway

Even if it ain’t all it seems
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby, I’m from

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York

On the avenue, there ain’t never a curfew
Ladies work so hard
Such a melting pot on the corner selling rock
Preachers pray to God
Hail a gypsy cab
Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger
For more than from an empty fridge

I’m going to make it by any means
I got a pocketful of dreams
Baby, I’m from

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York, New York, New York

One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights, big dreams, all looking pretty
No place in the world that can compared
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah

New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Hear it for New York

 

Y la primera parte, con JayZ.

JayZ feat. Alicia Keys – Empire State of Mind

But i’ll be hood forever,

cruising down 8th street,

and i brought my boys with me,

sitting courtside Knicks and Nets give me high fives,
Nigga i be spiked out, i can trip a referee,

Welcome to the bright light..

Lights is blinding,
girls need blinders
so they can step out of bounds quick,
the side lines is blind with casualties,
we sip the life casually, then gradually become worse,
don’t bite the apple Eve,
caught up in the in crowd,
now your in-style,
and in the winter gets cold en vogue with your skin out,
the city of sin is a pity on the whim,
good girls gone bad, the cities filled with them,
Mommy took a bus trip and now she got her bust out,
everybody ride her, just like a bus route,
Hail Mary to the city your a Virgin,
and Jesus can’t save you like starts when the church ends,
came here for school, graduated to the high life,
ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight,
MDMA got you feeling like a champion,
the city never sleeps better slip you a Ambien

New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
The lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York

One hand in the air for the big city,
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty,
no place in the World that can compare,
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeaaahh
come on, come,
yeah,

New York,
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There’s nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
The lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York, New York, New York
