Minutos musicales: el marido de PAMELA ANDERSON

Aunque la celebración tuvo lugar el 29 de julio, Pamela Anderson se convirtió oficialmente en esposa de Robert James Richie (Kid Rock) el jueves 3 de agosto en un juzgado camino del aeropuerto. Lo que no tengo muy claro es si seguirá con su nombre de soltera o se lo cambiará por el de Pamela Anderson Ritchie o Pamela Anderson Rock, teniendo en cuenta que durante su anterior matrimonio (con Tommy Lee, el batería de Mötley Crüe) se hizo llamar Pamela Anderson Lee.


Pero bueno, este post está dedicado a Kid Rock y su música ("fusión" de rock, rap y, fiel a su origen sureño, country), que desde principios de los 90 sacaba discos que pasaban sin pena ni gloria. Pero la indiferencia del público empezó a desaparecer en 1997, a partir de la firma de su primer contrato por una compañía importante, Atlantic. Al año siguiente vería la luz Devil without a Cause, un album que tardó meses en cuajar pero que cuando lo hizo fue suficiente para acabar vendiendo 11 millones de copias sólo en USA.

Junto a sus apariciones televisivas, fue una canción con título ridículo la que terminó por dar a Kid Rock el reconocimiento que tanto tiempo llevaba persiguiendo: Bawitdaba, que, como anécdota, sirvió como fondo musical de un anuncio de Solido Jeans.

(Chorus & Music Fades In)
Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the
boogy (6x)

My name is KIIIIIIIID, Kid Rock

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the
boogy (4x)

And this is for the questions that don't have any answers
The midnight glancers and the topless dancers
The candid freaks, cars packed with speakers
The G's with the forties and the chicks with beepers
The Northern Lights and the Southern Comfort
And it don't even matter if the veins are punctured
All the crackheads, the critics, the cynics
And all my heros at the Methodone Clinic
All you bastards at the IRS
For the crooked cops and the cluttered desks
For the shots of jack and the caps of meth
Half pints of love and the fifths of stress
For the hookers all tricking out in Hollywood
And for my hoods of the world misunderstood
I said it's all good and it's all in fun
Now get in the pit and try to love someone

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the
boogy (4x)

For the timebombs ticking and the heads that hang
All the gangs getting money and the heads that bang bang
Wild mustangs and porno flicks
All my homies in the county in cell block six
The grits when there ain't enough eggs to cook
And for DB Cooper and the money he took
You can look for answers but that ain't fun
Now get in the bed and try to love someone

(small solo)

what,what,what,what,what
what,what,what,what,what

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the
boogy (4x)

For the love, and for the hate
And for the peace.... WARRRRRRRRRRRR

Bawitdaba da bang da bang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the
boogy (4x)

(Music Fades To Back)

Pero los "tipos duros" también tienen sus momentos tiernos, como queda demostrado con Picture, una melancólica balada romántica cantada a dúo con Sheryl Crow dentro del disco Cocky.

Verse:1
Livin' my life in a slow hell
Different girl every night
At the hotel
I ain't seen the sunshine in
Three damn days
Been fuelin' up on cocaine and whiskey
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Lord I wonder if I'll ever
Change my ways

Chorus
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you
While I'm lying next to her
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you
While I'm lying next to her

Verse:2
I called you last night in the hotel
Everyone knows
But they won't tell
But their half-hearted smiles
Tell me somethin' just ain't right
I've been waitin' on you for a long time
Fuelin' up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain't heard from you in three damn nights

I put your picture away
I wonder where you've been
I can't look at you
While I'm lyin' next to him
I put your picture away
I wonder where you've been
I can't look at you
While I'm lyin' next to him
(Sheryl)
I saw you yesterday with an old friend
(Kid)
It was the same ol' same
How have you been
(Both)
Since you've been gone my worlds been
Dark and gray
(Kid)
You reminded me of brighter days
(Sheryl)
I hoped you were coming home to stay
I was headed to church
(Kid)
I was off to drag you away
(Both)
I thought about you for a long time
Can't seem to get you off my mind
I can't understand why we're living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you
To come back home
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you
To come back home
I just called to say I love you
Come back home

Aparte de un disco en directo, lo último editado de Kid Rock es un trabajo homónimo donde la influencia del country está más presente que nunca. Lo próximo, si las celebraciones y la luna de miel con Pam lo permiten, saldrá a la venta a principios del años que viene.

A mí es un tío que me resulta entrañable. Lo de pasarse años sin pena ni gloria y seguir insistiendo hasta conseguir triunfar haciendo lo que quiere me parece admirable.
