1- Bette Davis Eyes (Kim Carnes)


Her hair is Harlow gold,
Her lips sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold,
She's got Bette Davis eyes
She'll turn her music on you,
You won't have to think twice
She's pure as New York snow,
She got Bette Davis eyes

And she'll tease you,
She'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
She got Greta Garbo stand off sighs,
She's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll let you take her home,
It whets her appetite
She'll lay you on her throne,
She got Bette Davis eyes
She'll take a tumble on you,
Roll you like you were dice
Until you come out blue,
She's got Bette Davis eyes

She'll expose you, when she snows you
Off your feet with the crumbs she throws you
She's ferocious and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy,
She's got Bette Davis eyes

And she'll tease you,
She'll unease you
All the better just to please you
She's precocious, and she knows just
What it takes to make a pro blush
All the boys think she's a spy,
She's got Bette Davis eyes...

2- Wuthering Heights (Kate Bush)

Essa é um pouco roubada, já que faz referência de certa forma ao livro O Morro dos Ventos Uivantes, mas a cantora e compositora Kate Bush fez a música após assistir a versão de 1970 na televisão, então vale também, né hahahahaha


Out On the wiley, windy moors
We'd roll and fall in green
You had a temper, like my jealousy
Too hot, too greedy
How could you leave me
When I needed to possess you?
I hated you, I loved you too

Bad dreams in the night
They told me I was going to lose the fight
Leave behind my wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in in-a-your-window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in in-a-your-window

Oh it gets dark, it gets lonely
On the other side from you
I pine alot, I find the lot
Falls through without you
I'm coming back love, cruel Heathcliff
My one dream, my only master

Too long I roam in the night
I'm coming back to his side to put it right
I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering
Wuthering Heights

Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in in-a-your-window
Heathcliff, it's me, I'm Cathy, I've come home
I'm so cold, let me in in-a-your-window

Ooh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
Ooh let me have it, let me grab your soul away
You know it's me, Cathy

Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy come home
I'm so cold, let me in in-a-your-window
Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy come home
I'm so cold, let me in in-a-your-window
Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy come home
I'm so cold

Look around everywhere you turn is heartache
It's everywhere that you go [look around]
You try everything you can to escape
The pain of life that you know [life that you know]

So use it that's what it's for [that's what it's for]
Go inside, for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door [open up the door]

It makes no difference if you're black or white
If you're a boy or a girl
If the music's pumping it will give you new life
You're a superstar, yes, that's what you are

Come on, vogue
Let your body groove to the music
[groove to the music]
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow [go with the flow]

Magical, life's a ball
So get up on the dance floor

Let your body go with the flow
OOh, you've got to

4- Candle In The Wind (Elthon John)

Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill
And they made you change your name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood created a superstar
And pain was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude

Goodbye Norma Jean
From the young man in the 22nd row
Who sees you as something as more than sexual
More than just our Marilyn Monroe

6- Flagra (Rita Lee)


No escurinho do cinema
Chupando drops de anis
Longe de qualquer problema
Perto de um final feliz

Se a Deborah Kerr que o Gregory Peck
Não vou bancar o santinho
Minha garota é Mae West
Eu sou o Sheik Valentino

Mas de repente o filme pifou
E a turma toda logo vaiou
Acenderam as luzes, cruzes!
Que flagra!
Que flagra!
Que flagra!

7- The Infant Kiss (Kate Bush)

A música foi inspirada pelo filme estrelado por Deborah Kerr, Os Inocentes, assim como pelo livro escrito por Henry James, A Volta do Parafuso. Futuramente a cantora Kate Bush vai ganhar uma matéria só dela, com as músicas que foram inspiradas pelo cinema e literatura.


Say good night-night
I tuck him in tight.
But things are not right.

What is this? An infant kiss
That sends my body tingling?

I've never fallen for
A little boy before.
No control.

Just a kid and just at school.
Back home they'd call me dirty.
His little hand is on my heart.
He's got me where it hurts me.
Knock, knock. Who's there in this baby?
You know how to work me.

All my barriers are going.
It's starting to show.
Let go. Let go. Let go.

I cannot sit and let
Something happen I'll regret.
Ooh, he scares me!

There's a man behind those eyes.
I catch him when I'm bending.

Ooh, how he frightens me
When they whisper privately.
("Don't Let Go!")
Windy-wailey blows me.

Words of caress on their lips
That speak of adult love.

I want to smack but I hold back.
I only want to touch.

But I must stay and find a way
To stop before it gets too much!

All my barriers are going.
It's starting to show.
Let go. Let go. Let go.

8- Breakfast at Tiffany's (Deep Blue Something)

A música foi inspirada pelos filmes A Princesa e o Plebeu e Bonequinha de Luxo, ambos estrelados por Audrey Hepburn.


You'll say, we've got nothing in common,
No common ground to start from,
And we're falling apart,
You'll say, the world has come between us,
Our lives have come between us,
Still I know you just don't care.

And I said, "What about 'Breakfast at Tiffany's?'"
She said, "I think I remember the film,
And as I recall, I think, we both kind of liked it."
And I said, "Well that's, the one thing we've got."

I see you, the only one who knew me,
And now your eyes see through me,
I guess I was wrong,
So what now? It's plain to see we're over,
And I hate when things are over,
When so much is left undone.

And I said, "What about 'Breakfast at Tiffany's?'"
She said, "I think I, remember that film,
And, as I recall, I think, we both kind of liked it,"
And I said, "Well that's, the one thing we got."

You'll say, that we've got nothing in common,
No common ground to start from,
And we're falling apart,
You'll say the world has come between us,
Our lives have come between us,
Still I know you just don't care.

And I said, "What about 'Breakfast at Tiffany's?'"
She said, "I think I, remember that film,
And, as I recall, I think, we both kind of liked it,"
And I said, "Well that's, the one thing we got."

Oooooo

And I said, "What about 'Breakfast at Tiffany's?'"
She said, "I think I, remember that film,

And I said, "Well that's, the one thing we got."

9- Steve McQueen (Sheryl Crow)


Well I went to bed in Memphis
And I woke up in Hollywood
I got a quarter
in my pocket
And I¹d call you if I could
But I don¹t know why
I gotta fly
I wanna rock and roll this party
I still wanna have some fun
Iwanna leave you feeling breathless
Show you how the west was won
But I gotta fly
I gotta fly o

CHORUS: Like Steve McQueen
All I need's a fast machine
I¹m gonna make it all right
Like Steve McQueen
Underneath your radar screen
You¹ll never catch me tonite o I ain¹t takin¹ shit off no one
Baby that was yesterday
I¹m an all American rebel
Making my big getaway
Yeah you know it¹s time
I gotta fly

CHORUS

We got rockstars in the Whitehouse
All our popstars look like porn
All my heroes hit the highway
Because they don¹t hang out here no more
You can call me on my cell phone
You can page me all night long
But you won¹t catch this freebird
I¹ll already be long gone
Like Steve McQueen
All we need¹s a fast machine
And we¹re gonna make it all right

CHORUS

10- James Dean (Eagles)


James Dean, James Dean
I know just what you mean
James Dean, you said it all so clean
And I know my life would look allright
If I could see it on the silver screen

You were the lowdown rebel if there ever was
Even if you had no cause
James Dean, you said it all so clean
And I know my life would look all right
If I could see it on the silver screen

We'll talk about a low-down bad refrigerator,
You were just too cool for school
Sock hop, soda pop, basketball and auto shop,
The only thing that got you off was breakin' all the rules
James Dean, James Dean
So hungry and so lean
James Dean, you said it all so clean
And I know my life would look all right
If I could see it on the silver screen

Little James Dean, up on the screen
Wond'rin' who he might be
Along came a Spyder and picked up a rider
And took him down the road to eternity

James Dean, James Dean, you bought it sight unseen

You were too fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye
You were to fast to live, too young to die, bye-bye

11- Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle (Nirvana)



It's so relieving
To know that you're leaving as soon as you get paid
It's so relaxing
To hear that you're asking wherever you get your way
It's so soothing
To know that you'll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad (x3)

In her false witness, we hope you're still with us,
To see if they float or drown
Our favorite patient, a display of patience,
Disease-covered Puget Sound
She'll come back as fire, to burn all the liars,
And leave a blanket of ash on the ground

I miss the comfort in being sad (x3)

It's so relieving
To know that you're leaving as soon as you get paid
It's so relaxing
To know that you're asking wherever you get your way
It's so soothing
To know that you'll sue me, this is starting to sound the same

I miss the comfort in being sad (x3)

12- Just Like Fred Astaire (James)


Doctor,
What is happening to me?
Palpitations
My mind's diseased
Even my vision is impaired
I'm losing my hair
Cos when I hold her in my arms
I feel like Fred Astaire

Lovesick
My temperature's high
Just met a girl
Who believes we can fly
I'm a bull not a bear
I'm a millionaire
And when I hold her in my arms
I feel like Fred Astaire

I believe in happiness
I believe in Love
I believe she fell to earth
from somewhere high above
I believe in Hollywood
Don't believe that Love must bring despair
Cos when I hold her in my arms
I'm just like Fred Astaire

He said love is just a disease
A plague for the naïve
These days no one believes
These days no one believes

Meteors may strike the earth
Nations live and die
I'm the boy who got the girl
Who showed me how to fly
We can cross the race divide
Bridge a gap that wasn't really there
When I hold her in my arms
I feel like Fred Astaire
I'm gonna hold her in my charm
Just like Fred Astaire

13- Cary Grant's Wedding (The Fall)



I said shut up
Everybody go Cary Grant's wedding

Champagne hip hip hooray
Thank you folks for coming today
How much was the price of the Dodge?
Sure it's worth a whole lot more

I said go to Cary Grant's wedding
All you folks and fools
Cary Grant's Wedding

All you folks and fools
Have been invited to
A new-wave personality
Stumbles out of the ruins
Cos he's been invited to
Cary Grant's wedding

Buster Keaton he turned up
He wasn't a woman
He didn't take hallucigens

A poor mate for Cary Grant
Slaughterer of innocents
Add on 30 years
And you've got Jake Burns
Joe Strummer

All you're going to
Cary Grant's wedding
A new-wave Hollywood
Where everybody's good
But not great

Tradução aqui.

14- Bela Lugosi's Dead (Bauhaus)



White on White translucent black capes
Back on the back
Bela Lugosi's dead
The bats have left the bell tower
The victims have been Bled
Red velvet lines the black box
Bela Lugosi's dead
Undead undead undead

The virginal brides file past his tomb
Strewn with time's dead flowers
Bereft in deathly bloom
Alone in a darkened room
The count bela lugosi's dead
Undead undead undead

Oh Bela
Bela's undead

Tradução aqui.

15- Frank Sinatra (Cake)


We know of an ancient radiation
that haunts dismembered constellations;
a faintly glimmering radio station.

While Frank Sinatra sings "Stormy Weather,"
the flies and spiders get along together,
cobwebs fall on an old skipping record.

Beyond the suns that guard this roost,
beyond your flowers of flaming truth,
beyond your latest ad campaign,
an old man sits, collecting stamps,
in a room all filled with chinese lamps.
He saves what others throw away,
he says that he'll be rich someday

We know of an ancient radiation
that haunts dismembered constellations;
a faintly glimmering radio station
(x2)

While Frank Sinatra sings "Stormy Weather,"
the flies and spiders get along together,
cobwebs fall on an old skipping record.
