La canción del día (solista): I´m the greatest


Bueeeenas… Acá le dejo un videíto de Ringo, con una cancioncita livianita y chacotona que me gustaría le aporte algo positivo para el fin de semana que está comenzando.

I´m the greatest” es una canción de John Lennon escrita para Ringo. Aparece en el album “Ringo” de 1973 y tiene la particularidad de haber sido grabada por John Lennon (piano), George Harrison (guitarra eléctrica), Billy Preston (órgano) y Klauss Voorman (bajo).

O sea, lo mas parecido a los Beatles que se vería hasta la época de Anthology.

En esta canción John hace un par de referencias a los Beatles. Para comenzar, le hace decir a Ringo “Mi nombre es Billy Shears”, su alter-ego en “Sargent Pepper”.

En otro lado dice que “estuve en el show mas grande de la Tierra”…

La letra, a continuación:

When i was a little boy,
Way back home in Liverpool,
My mama told me, I was great.

Then when i was a teenager,
I knew that i had got something going,
All my friends told me I was great.

And now I’m a man,
A woman took me by the hand,
And you know what she told me…I was great.

I was in the greatest show on Earth,
For what it was worth.
Now I´m only thirty-two;
And all I wanna do, is boogaloo!

Hey!

I looked in the mirror,
I saw my wife and kids,
And you know what they told me…I was great.

Yes, my name is Billy Shears,
You know it has been for so many years.
Now I’m only thirty-two;
And all I wanna do, is boogaloo!

Hey, hey, hey, (hey, hey, hey) yeah!

(hey, hey, hey)

I’m the greatest and you better believe it, baby!

Ho! Ho! Ho!

I’m gonna be the greatest in this world, (ho!)
In the next world and in any world! (hey!)

Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright,
Alright, alright, alright, alright, alright, alright.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, all right!
