CLASICOS DE FLOR DE PASION

UP ON THE ROOF

THE DRIFTERS

...bueno,vamos a continuar con los Drifters y esta vez no es la voz de Ben E.King la que esta al frente,si no la de Rudy Lewis,como tenor principal.
Lewis ocuparia el puesto de King a partir de 1961;todo un gran artista y cantante que nacio el 23 de Agosto de 1936 y murio en 1964.Sin duda,una de las grandes voces del R&B y lo vamos a escuchar con un tema compuesto por Carole King y Gerry Goffin,con orquestaciones escritas por la misma Carole.
Un tema arquetipico del Pop...Si hay una melodia que me llega,es esta...Es
inmortal esta cancion...La version original claro esta,despues ha habido muchas versiones del "Up On The Roof",Sobre el Tejado...

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now


When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)





At night the stars put on a show for free
And, darling, you can share it all with me


I keep a-tellin' you


Right smack dab in the middle of town
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof (up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)
