Muchas veces uno se sorprende con sonidos que rememoran tiempos pasados casi “beatleianos“. Es el caso de este Old Town de los Corrs, que usa estructuras y arreglos dignos de cualquier album de los Lennon, McCartney, Starr y Harrison. Alguno podrá incluso pensar que eso es tirar de cara dura. Pero qué quereis que os diga… A mí me parece una bendición cada vez que escucho algo parecido a lo que hacían esos Señores (sí, con mayúsculas).

Si no, fíjate en la trompetita que suena durante la canción… típica, típica. El tema no deja de ser entrañable, ideal para estas fiestas aniseras, turroneras y mazapañeras.

The Corrs - Old Town

The girl’s a fool
She broke the rule
She hurt him hard
This time he will break down
She’s lost his trust
And so she must
Know all is lost
The system has broke down
Romance has broke down

This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broke down

She plays it hard
She plays it tough
But that’s enough
The love is over
She’s broke his heart and that is rough
But in the end he’ll soon recover
The romance is over

This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broke down

Hola

[Solo]

This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broken down
This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broke down

I’ve been spending my money
In the old town
It’s not the same honey
With you not around
I’ve been spending my time
In the old town
I sure miss you honey
Now you’re not around
You’re not around
This old town

Hola

This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broken down

Yeah yeah
This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broke down

This boy is crackin’ up crackin up
This boy has broken down

Yeah yeah
This boy is crackin’ up
This boy has broke down
This boy has broken down
This boy has broke down
