Amy Macdonald - This is the life (2007)

UK chart entry: 16 December 2007
Peak position: 28

No sé si alguien conoce a esta cantante o no. Aunque por esta canción parezca un tanto country, en realidad es escocesa, tiene 20 años, no le gusta la fama ni hablar mucho, y dice ser un poco chicazo (le van los bugas y los videojuegos).

Como ya he dicho antes, yo suelo ir canción a canción, así que sólo recomiendo ésta y la otra que he oído, 'Mr Rock and Roll'. ¿Mensaje? Nada en particular. Habla de salir con los colegas a la caza los chicos de chicas, cantar a voces en los tugurios, tener resacas, pagar taxis a escote, aburrirse de esperarse y sólo preguntarse a dónde vas hoy y dónde vas a dormir. O así.



Oh the wind whistles down
the cold dark street tonight,
and the people, they were dancing
to the music vibe.
And the boys chase the girls with the curls in their hair
while the shy tormented youth sit way over there,
and the songs, they get louder,
each one better than before.

And you're singing the songs,
thinking "this is the life",
and you wake up in the morning,
and your head feels twice the size.
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you're singing the songs,
thinking "this is the life",
and you wake up in the morning,
and your head feels twice the size.
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?

So you're heading down the road in your taxi for four,
and you're waiting outside Jimmy's front door,
but nobody's in, and nobody's home 'til four,
so you're sitting there with nothing to do,
talking about Robert Riger and his motley crew
and where you're gonna go and where you're gonna sleep tonight.

And you're singing the songs,
thinking "this is the life",
and you wake up in the morning,
and your head feels twice the size.
Where you gonna go? Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna sleep tonight?
(repeat)
