Picasso visita o planeta dos simios



Adam and the Ants, banda inglesa dos 80, compuxo a canción a raíz dunha visita a España. Contan que a compañía discográfica quixo agasallalos cunha cea na casa dun dos novos ídolos españois do momento: Miguel Bosé. As cousas non ían moi ben e o cantante, Adam, refuxiouse no baño onde descubriu que as paredes estaban decoradas cunha serie de debuxos de Picasso: de aí ven a canción.
Non é na súa honra nin unha homenaxe, pero como resulta curiosa a súa orixe e crítica a súa letra, aí vai.

See the spaniard eating chocolatesSee the spaniard have a ballSee the spaniard trust in no oneHe’s on quality street, ...As the masters rot on wallsAnd the angels eat their grapesI watched picasso visit the planet of the apesAs the masters rot on wallsAnd the angels eat their grapesI watched picassoPablo picassoVisit the planet of the apes (yeah)See the spaniard seek companionSee the spaniard take it allSee the spaniard sell his friends outHe’s on quality street, ...And pretenders pretendTo their patronage lend
But it’s the ones we don’t seeThat always fascinate me

As the masters rot on wallsAnd the angels eat their grapesI watched picasso visit the planet of the apesAs the masters rot on wallsAnd the angels eat their grapesI watched PicassoPablo PicassoVisit the planet of the apes (yeah)As the real heroes diedAnd their ideas suppliedTo a fat little magpieWith money in his eyesThey bowed and they scrapedAs opinions he shapedNow every little sketch a fortune will fetchAnd the bleach killer kills, ...And as the masters rot on walls
(see the spaniard sell the whole world)...
