Hablando sobre la revolución

Un poco de música. El siguiente vídeo fue filmado en vivo en 1988. Me acuerdo que se deliberaba si Tracy Chapman era mujer o no, y muchos tarareaban sin saber lo que cantaban en Talkin´ bout A Revolution, una canción políticamente activista. En el vídeo, uno puede ver las falsas esperanzas en los ojos de Tracy en su esfuerzo por despertar a la gente. Al menos los países de Europa del Este en 1989 pudieron levantarse, como la “revolución de terciopelo” que se celebra hoy en Praga, luego de la caída del muro de Berlín. Suecia desarma el “estado de bienestar”. Los centinelas del socialismo salvaje toman ventaja y se aprovechan de la inocencia de la gente que sigue dormida.

Tracy Chapman – Talkin’ Bout A Revolution (1988)

Don’t you know you’re talking about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper
Don’t you know they’re talking about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don’t you know you’re talking about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

Poor people are gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people are gonna rise up
And take what’s theirs

Don’t you know you better run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Oh I said you better run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking about a revolution
Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking about a revolution oh no
Talking about a revolution oh no

While they’re standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don’t you know you’re talking about a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking about a revolution
Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talking about a revolution oh no
Talking about a revolution oh no
Talking about a revolution oh no
