As grandes canções filipinas sempre batem forte em meu peito, principalmente quando filmadas pelo grande Khavn de la Cruz.

Carioca, suburbano, mulato e malandro…

Bares da Cidade

Anoiteceu
Outra vez vou sair
Sem nada a esperar
Sem ter pra onde ir
Vou caminhar por aí a cantar
Tentando acalmar as tristezas por onde eu passar

A minha vida boêmia de bar em bar
É o meu amor sem paz
Por um amor vulgar
Que me abandonou
Chorando os meus ais
Me deixando também por maldade
Saudades demais
E eu vou levando minha alma aflita
À noite a cidade é tão bonita
Do Lamas ao Capela, e da Mem de Sá
Passo no Bar Luís
E no Amarelinho é que eu vou terminar

João Nogueira era carioca, suburbano, mulato, malandro, flamenguista e, naturalmente, beberrão.

The Piano Has Been Drinking

The piano has been drinking, my necktie is asleep
And the combo went back to New York, the jukebox has to take a leak
And the carpet needs a haircut, and the spotlight looks like a prison break
And the telephone’s out of cigarettes, and the balcony is on the make
And the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking…
And the menus are all freezing, and the light man’s blind in one eye
And he can’t see out of the other
And the piano-tuner’s got a hearing aid, and he showed up with his mother
And the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking
As the bouncer is a Sumo wrestler cream-puff casper milktoast
And the owner is a mental midget with the I.Q. of a fence post
‘Cause the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking…
And you can’t find your waitress with a Geiger counter
And she hates you and your friends and you just can’t get served without her
And the box-office is drooling, and the bar stools are on fire
And the newspapers were fooling, and the ash-trays have retired
‘Cause the piano has been drinking, the piano has been drinking
The piano has been drinking, not me, not me, not me, not me, not me

Tom Waits, além de galã dos motéis de beira de estrada, é também um beberrão.

A Drinking Song

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.

William Butler Yeats era um beberrão, de facto.
