Ciclos y Reciclos, Parte 2: Roger Waters y Las Listas

Una manía de Roger en muchas de sus letras es la tendencia a repetir una frase haciendo pequeños cambios, pero ir mencionandola consecutivamente.




La lista a continuación supone una indicación de la tendencia de Roger en usa listas en algunos de sus versos. Incidentalmente sus primeras letras fueron solo un ejercicio, y luego fue madurando obviamente como escritor:

:: Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk (1967)
:: If (1970)
:: Eclipse (1973)
:: Gotta Be Crazy (1974)
:: Dogs (1977) coda
:: What Shall We Do Now? (1979-1982)
:: Not Now John (1983)
:: Home (1987)
:: The Powers That Be (1987)
:: What God Wants parts 1 & 2 (1992)
:: Flickering Flame (2001)


Si aun no te convences de lo que lees o no entiendes de que estamos hablando aqui van unos claros ejemplos:


If I were a swan...
If I were the moon...
If I were a rule...etc.
("If" - Atom Heart Mother - 1970)


All that you touch...
and all that you see...
all you distrust... etc.
("Eclipse" - The Dark Side Of The Moon - 1973)


Gotta be crazy...
gotta be mean...
gotta keep your kids and your car clean...
gotta ...this ..
gotta ...the other.. etc.
("Gotta be crazy" - 1974)


Who was...born in a house full of pain
Who was...trained not to spit in the fan
Who was...told what to do by the man
...
Who was dragged down by the stone
("Dogs" - Animals - 1977)


Shall we buy a new guitar?
shall we drive a more powerful car?
shall we work straight through the night
shall we... this...?
shall we... that...? etc.
("What Shall We Do Now? - The Wall/Music From The Film - 1982)


Make 'em laugh
Make 'em cry
Make 'em dance in the aisles
Make 'em pay
Make 'em stay
Make 'em feel ok
("Not Now John" - The Final Cut - 1983)


Make them mad,
make them sad,
make them add two and two
Make them me,
make them you,
make them do what you want them to
Make them laugh,
make them cry,
make them lie down and die
("One Of The Few" - The Final Cut - 1983)


Could be Jerusalem...or could be Cairo
Could be Berlin, or could be Prague
Could be Moscow, could be New York
Could be... ... etc.
Everybody's got something he calls home
("Home" - Radio K.A.O.S. - 1987)
