500 BM

En la ceremonia inaugural de los JJ OO de Londres, 2012 se hizo un repaso a la música británica. Era realmente interesante y, como encontré un enlace que circulaba con las canciones que habían sonado, busqué los vídeos y quedó una entrada de las que hay que visitar de vez en cuando.

Porque la música era muy buena. Me lo pasé en grande recordando una parte de las canciones que forman la historia de mi vida.

Así, recordé también mi vida. Recordar es volver a vivir.

Fui (más) joven (otra vez).


Eché en falta algunas canciones. Y otros amigos, descubrieron más ausencias. Entre todos se estaba gestando una lista alternativa que se podría entender como la de las sugerencias (desde este blog) para la ceremonia de clausura.

Entonces me puse a buscar canciones de la música británica, de todos los tiempos. Y me lo empecé a pasar bien de verdad. Al principio, las recordaba. Más tarde, tirando de pistas que encontraba en la red, volvía a ecuchar  canciones, olvidadas hace muchos años. También descubrí algunas recientes que me habían pasado desapercibidas. O cosas extrañas o alejadas de mi gusto personal. Pero seguía recopilando.

Y puse un número. Ahora ya sabéis por qué la entrada se llama así.

La Música Británica en un repaso intenso. ¡Que lo disfrutéis!

  1. ¡Ole, ole y ole!
    Esto es un repertorio.
    Ya me puedo morir en paz.

    1. Hombre, Juan Ángel, ya sé que no hace falta que lo diga, que se trataba de un recurso retórico y eso, pero no me hagas sentir culpable.

      Da la sensación de que, en lugar de hacer un recopilatorio, he hecho un responso.

      En cualquier caso, gracias.

  2. Fantástico Alberto, !Cómo me voy a pasar el mes de agosto!!
    Muchas gracias!!
    Un beso

  3. Joder!!!
    !!!Cuanto curro!!! (en estos tiempos es casi algo anacrónico)

    1. Pues parecerá una gilipollez (que seguro que lo es), pero conseguir que, por haberlo hecho, me conteste una persona a la que sigo y admiro (solo en el blog, todavía no tengo "demasiada" información), merece la pena.

      Me has convertido, en un instante, en un optimista vivencial.

  4. Increíble Alberto.
    Me has dado la ocasión de revivir muchos momentos especiales, de saborearlos; y mirando hacia atrás me he dado cuenta de que tengo mucho bueno que recordar y lo he vuelto a vivir.
    Entiendo que a pesar del trabajo, hayas disfrutado en la gestación de este artículo.

    1. Muchísimo. Hay tareas que (aunque pesadas en su carga) encierran una profunda satisfacción.


Tu comentario será bien recibido. Gracias
