Momentos musicales: Stairway to Heaven (versión de Pat Boone)

En 1997, el cantante de blues Pat Boone sacó un álbum con 12 versiones de 12 temas diferentes de rock y Metal, eso sí, en su propio estilo musical.

El disco se llama In a Metal Mood: No More Mr. Nice Guy, y la duodécima canción es una versión de Stairway to Heaven de Led Zeppelin. Personalmente, me parece la mejor versión que he escuchado jamás de esta canción:

Lyrics attack!

There's a lady who's sure
all that glitters is gold
and she's buying a stairway to Heaven.

When she gets there she knows
if the stores are all closed,
with a word she can get what she came for.

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
And she's buying a stairway to Heaven.

There's a sign on the wall,
but she wants to be sure,
'cause you know sometimes words have
two meanings.

In a tree by the brook,
there's a songbird who sings.
sometimes all of our thoughts are

Ooh, it makes me wonder.

Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get
when I look to the West.
And my spirit is crying
for leaving

In my thoughts I have seen
rings of smoke through the trees.
And the voices of those
who stand looking.

Ooh, it makes me wonder.

Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon,
if we all call the tune.
Then the piper will lead us to reason.

And a new day will dawn
for those who stand long.
And the forests will
echo with laughter.

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, ooh, whoa, oh

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow,
don't be alarmed now.
It's just a spring clean
for the May queen.

Yes, there are two paths you can go by.
But in the long run.
There's still time to change
the road you're on

And it makes me wonder.

Aw, uh, oh.

Your head is humming and it won't go
in case you don't know
the piper's calling you to join him.

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow?
And did you know.
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

And as we wind on down the road,
our shadows taller than our soul,
there walks a lady we all know
who shines white light and wants to show
how everything still turns to gold,
and if you listen very hard,
the truth will come to you at last
when all are one and one is all
to be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway
to Heaven...

Fase bonus, ¿cuál es la opinión de Sánchez sobre esta canción?
"Ésta es una canción que trata sobre una chica, sobre la primavera y de cómo los pájaros construyen sus nidos..."
