Ping pong

Hoy suena en La Arbonaida Ping Pong, una canción del grupo franco-británico Stereolab, incluida en su álbum del año 1994 Mars Audiac Quintet. Fue la canción que los dio a conocer de un modo más amplio. El germen del grupo son Tim Gane y Laetitia Sadier. Ella era fan del anterior grupo al que pertenecía Gane, al disolverse formó Stereolab con esta chica francesa a la que había conocido en los conciertos. Podéis ver y oir la canción aquí.

Ping Pong

It's alright 'cause the historical pattern has shown
How the economical cycle tends to revolve
In a round of decades, three stages stand out in a loop
A slump and war, then peel back to square one and back for more

Bigger slump and bigger wars and a smaller recovery
Huger slump and greater wars and a shallower recovery

You see the recovery always comes 'round again
There's nothing to worry for things will look after themselves
It's alright recovery always comes 'round again
There's nothing to worry if things can only get better

There's only millions that lose their jobs and homes and sometimes accents
There's only millions that die in the bloody wars, it's alright

It's only their lives and the lives of their next of kin that they are losing
It's only their lives and the lives of their next of kin that they are losing

It's alright 'cause the historical pattern has shown
How the economical cycle tends to revolve
In a round of decades, three stages stand out in a loop
A slump and war, then peel back to square one and back for more

Bigger slump and bigger wars and a smaller recovery
Huger slump and greater wars and a shallower recovery

Don't worry be happy things will get better naturally
Don't worry, shut up, sit down, go with it and be happy

Dum, dum, dum, de dum dum, de duh de duh de dum dum dum... ah ah
Dum, dum, dum, de dum dum, de duh de duh de dum dum dum... ah ah
