Blood of Emeralds / Gary Moore

gary_moore.jpg

少なくとも今のゲーリー・ムーアはヘヴィメタルには分類されません。
ハードロックでも辛いかもです。
時々思い切り主旨替え(?)してくれます。
でも憎めない人です(笑)。

とは言ってもやっぱり僕は、
ハードロック時代(?)と呼ばれる頃のゲーリー・ムーアが好きです。
そんでもってアルバムとしては恐らくハードロック時代の最後になる、
「After The War (1989)」が好きだったりします。
ここから先はブルージー路線になってしまいましたからね。
極めて評価の別れるアルバムではあるのですが。

その「After The War」の中でも僕は「Blood of Emeralds」と言う曲が妙に好きです。
哀愁あるニール・カーターのキーボードとゲーリーのギターから入って、
続けてコージー・パウエルのドラムが炸裂する、
8分19秒もあるちょっとケルティックな曲なんですけどね。
聴かれた事が無い方は機会があれば是非(笑)!

そんでもって無論ですがゲーリーの中では、
「Back On The Streets (1978)」の中の「Parisienne Walkways」は、
誰しもが認める通りに名曲だと思うし別格だとも思いますよ(笑)!

Blood Of Emeralds / Gary Moore - YouTube



I was born up on the North side,
Where the Lagan River flows.
When I came across the border,
I was following my nose.
Dublin city '69,
There could have been no better place,
There was no better time.
Through the thunder and the rain,
The deepest blood of emeralds
Was running through my veins.

Blood of emeralds.

I was down and out on Skid Row,
but I held on to my pride.
The darkest son of Ireland,
he was standin' by my side.
We would sail the stormy seas.
Never looking back,
we were afraid of what we'd see.
Through the thunder and the rain,
the deepest blood of emeralds
was running through our veins.

Some of us will win and some of us will lose,
the strong will survive.
Some of us will fall,
some of us won't get out of here alive.

Blood of emeralds.
Blood of emeralds.

I was angry, I was sad,
Just thinking about the times we had.
I felt so lost and lonely too,
What could I say, what could I do?
After all, the time goes by.
No one knows the reasons why.
You lived each day like there was no tomorrow.
You spent those years living on time you borrowed.
And in your eyes, all I could see was sorrow.

Some of us will win, some of us will lose,
The strong will survive.
Some of us will fall,
Some of us won't get out of here alive.

Blood of emeralds.
Blood of emeralds.
Blood of emeralds.
Blood of emeralds.
The deepest blood of emeralds.
Blood of emeralds.
The deepest blood of emeralds.
The deepest, deepest blood of emeralds.
