Minutos musicales: MATCHBOX 20 y un superhéroe en el MUNDO REAL

Aunque ya hace más de 2 meses que se editó, yo me acabo de enterar de que Matchbox Twenty (antes Matchbox 20) tiene nuevo disco a la venta. Rob Thomas (más conocido mundialmente por componer e interpretar el Smooth que descubrió la guitarra de Santana a una nueva generación) y sus chicos se han vuelto a reunir para Exile on Mainstream, un "greatest hits" que incluye también canciones inéditas, y para dar una serie de conciertos por la geografía yanqui. En el videoclip que os presento de uno de sus temas más conocidos, perteneciente a su primer álbum (Yourself or Someone Like You), se plantean algo que a cualquier friki que se precie se le ha pasado alguna vez por la cabeza.

Real World - Matchbox 20

I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the rain
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on everyone
And you can come see them when I'm...done, when I'm done

I wonder what it's like to be a super hero

I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown

From some other planet, I get this funky high on yellow Sun

Boy I bet my friends will all be...stunned, they're stunned

Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig,
I wish the real world, would just stop hassling me

I wonder what it's like to be the head honcho
I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said
I'd shout out an order, I think we're out of this man get me some
Boy don't make me wanna change my...tone, my tone


Please don't change, please don't break
The only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please don't change, at all from me
To you, and you to me
