SERIES - ELTONmanía - Wouldn't have you any other way



Ahora cambiando de época, Wouldn't have you any other way (NYC) es un tema musical perteneciente a su álbum The Captain & the Kid, lanzado en Septiembre de 2006.  Las probabilidades de que Elton cante esta canción en su concierto en Panamá son simplemente cero.  La menciono en este blog, en estas Series, sencillamente porque me gusta.

Es una canción compuesta por Elton, en la que expresa su amor por la Ciudad de Nueva York; amor al que ya ha hecho referencia con la cancion Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters (1972), y también en la canción Empty Garden (1982).  Elton ha dado 60 conciertos en Nueva York, y ha estado en esa ciudad muchísimas veces.  Tengo la esperanza de que Elton sienta gusto por la Ciudad de Panamá, su gente, su clima, su Canal, su historia, su posición en el globo; y quiera regresar. 

The Captain & the Kid es el álbum de estudio #29 del compositor Elton John, y es el segundo álbum autobiográfico en referencia además al liricista Bernie Taupin, dado que el álbum es la secuela de Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, lanzado en 1975.  The Captain & the Kid es una crónica de eventos que han ocurrido en sus vidas desde que empezaron a trabajar juntos hace 30 años. 

Aquí la letra de la canción:

I remember it like it was yesterday
Snow in the park and skaters on the ice
Long black cars standing side-by-side
Loading up the boys at night
Turned up our collars to the chill of the wind
Caught an innocent smile from a taxi at the lights
Not something you'd see on a New York street
It's such an uncommon sight

But I wouldn't have it any other way
This city's got a thing about it
Don't try to understand it
New York City I'd really like to stay
New York City I wouldn't have you
I wouldn't have you any other way
Oh the subway rumbled underneath
Italian lights where Joey Gallo died
And the man on the door down at Fifty Four's
Is letting only the pretty inside
I'd wake with a stranger under the covers
Late in the day and longing for the night
Just like the snowfall there's so many bodies
But somehow it feels so right

But I wouldn't have it any other way
This city's got a thing about it
Don't try to understand it
New York City I'd really like to stay
New York City I wouldn't have you
I wouldn't have you any other way

And I can feel the magic
And read a million lips
And no matter what might happen
They'll never sink this ship

But I wouldn't have it any other way
This city's got a thing about it
Don't try to understand it
New York City I'd really like to stay
New York City I wouldn't have you
I wouldn't have you any other way

I wouldn't have you any other way
