아메리카 - A Horse with No Name (1972) 음악

1972년 발매된 히트곡으로 당시 빌보드 1위를 차지. 지금도 애청되는 명곡이다. 당시 아직도 남아있던 사이키델릭한 분위기때문인지, 가사가 헤로인을 의미한다는 분석도 많은 곡.

이름부터 미국내음이 풀풀 나는, 아메리카라는 이 밴드는 이 곡이 첫 히트작이었고 (데뷔앨범), 84년까지 활발한 활동. 그후 90년대와 2000년대, 놀랍게도 2011년에도 정규앨범을 발매하고 있다.

락클래식중 하나. 과연 앞으로 '이런 수준의 가사'를 락에서 혹은 팝송에서 만날 날이 다시 도래할까?

America- A horse with no name (1972년)

A Horse With No Name (가사)

On the first part of the journey, 
I was looking at all the life. 
There were plants and birds. and rocks and things, 
There was sand and hills and rings. 
The first thing I met, was a fly with a buzz, 
And the sky, with no clouds. 
The heat was hot, and the ground was dry, 
But the air was full of sound. 

I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, 
It felt good to be out of the rain.
In the desert you can't remember your name, 
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain. 
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

After two days, in the desert sun, 
My skin began to turn red. 
After three days, in the desert fun, 
I was looking at a river bed. 
And the story it told, of a river that flowed, 
Made me sad to think it was dead. 

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, 
It felt good to be out of the rain. 
In the desert you can't remember your name, 
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain. 
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la

After nine days, I let the horse run free, 
'Cause the desert had turned to sea. 
There were plants and birds, and rocks and things, 
There was sand and hills and rings. 
The ocean is a desert, with its life underground, 
And a perfect disguise above. 
Under the cities lies, a heart made of ground, 
But the humans will give no love. 

You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name, 
It felt good to be out of the rain. 
In the desert you can't remember your name, 
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain. 

La la, la, la la la la, la la la, la, la
