Buona domenica #14

IMG_0871Felice domenica di fine estate a tutti!

Con l’immagine di una vecchia auto sportiva cabrio con tanto di capote aperta vi auguro di trascorrere una giornata serena. 

La foto e’ stata scattata in Finlandia a luglio:  che ci crediate o no,  anche qui in estate si possono godere le auto cabrio. 

Curiosita’:  l’adesivo che indica la Nazionalita’ e’ il vecchio SF (=Suomi Finland),  rimpiazzato in tempi piu’ moderni dall’attuale:  FIN.

Per voi un brano memorabile,  bellissimo,  avvincente,  romantico-melanconico del Boss che non mi stancherei mai di sentire:  Girls in their Summer Clothes.

Buon ascolto!  www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEF6z2LyOPs

Un verso piuttosto attuale:  Things been a little tight  / But I know they’re gonna turn my way…


Girls in their Summer Clothes.

Well the street lights shine
Down on Blessing Avenue
Lovers they walk by
Holdin’ hands two by two
A breeze crosses the porch
Bicycle spokes spin ’round
Jacket’s on, I’m out the door
Tonight I’m gonna burn this town down
And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by
Kid’s rubber ball smacks
Off the gutter ‘neath the lamp light
Big bank clock chimes
Off go the sleepy front porch lights
Downtown the store’s alive
As the evening’s underway
Things been a little tight
But I know they’re gonna turn my way
And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by
Frankie’s Diner’s
Over on the edge of town
Neon sign spinnin’ round
Like a cross over the lost and found
Fluorescent lights
Flicker above Bob’s Grill
Shaniqua brings a coffee and asks “fill?”
And says “penny for your thoughts now my boy Bill”
She went away
She cut me like a knife
Hello beautiful thing
Maybe you could save my life
In just a glance
Down here on Magic Street
Love’s a fool’s dance
I ain’t got much sense but I still got my feet
And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by
And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by
La la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la, la la la la la la la

Happy end-of-summer Sunday to you all!

Dear readers,  I’d like to wish you a lovely Sunday with this image of a vintage car taken in Finland in July.  Believe it or not,  even here in the deep north it is possible to enjoy convertible cars in summertime!

A fun fact:  the bumper sticker on the car is the old-style Country-tag with the letters:  SF (=Suomi Finland),  nowadays replaced by the new ones:  FIN.

For you today I have selected a fantastic song by the Boss,  a song that really gives me emotions (joy and melancholy) and I am never fed up listening to:  Girls in their Summer Clothes.

Enjoy it:   www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEF6z2LyOPs

A verse I like:  Things been a little tight / But I know they’re gonna turn my way…

  1. Ma sai che non la conoscevo? A quei tempi avevo un’amica che stava appresso a un ragazzo che adorava Springsteen e mi faceva uscire le sue canzoni dalle orecchie perciò è davvero da tantissimo che non sento le sue canzoni… Bella, però! 😊
    Buon pomeriggio. 😊
