19.06.05 // In Between Dreams von Jack Johnson

Wenn Langnese nach Sommer schmeckt so klingt er nach der Musik von Jack Johnson.

Mit seinen eingängigen Gitarrenmelodien und seinen tief gehenden aber gleichzeitig sehr entspannend klingenden Texten macht er Appetit auf den Sommer, auf entspanntes Relaxen am Strand oder auf einer Hängematte.

Jack Johnson musiziert im Stil von „Simon and Garfunkel“ oder „Cat Stevens“ mit einem gewissen Hauch Lässigkeit.

In Between Dreams ist die dritte Platte des Hawaiianers, der mit vierzehn Jahren begann Gitarre zu spielen. Das Video zu seiner Single „Sitting, Waiting, Wishing“ ist komplett rückwärts aufgenommen.

Ich habe mir jedoch einen anderen Song ausgesucht:

You win it’s your show now
So what’s it going to be?
Because people will tune in
How many train wrecks do we need to see?
Before we lose touch
And we thought this was low
Well it’s bad, getting worse…

Where’d all the good people go?
I’ve been changing channels and I don’t see them on the tv shows
Where’d all the good people go?
We’ve got heaps and heaps of what we sow

They got this and that with a rattle a tat
Testing, one, two, man whatcha gonna do
Bad news misused, got too much to lose
Give me some truth now, who’s side are we on
Whatever you say
Turn on the boob tube, I’m in the mood to obey
So lead me astray
And by the way now…

Where’d all the good people go?
I’ve been changing channels and I don’t see them on the tv shows
Where’d all the good people go?
We’ve got heaps and heaps of what we sow

Sitting around feeling far away
So far away but I can feel the debris, can you feel it?
You interrupt me from a friendly conversation
To tell me how great it’s all going to be
You might notice some hesitation
Because its important to you, it’s not important to me
But way down by the edge of your reason
It’s beginning to show and I really want to know is…

Where’d all the good people go?
I’ve been changing channels and I don’t see them on the tv shows
Where’d all the good people go?
We got heaps and heaps of what we sow

They got this and that with a rattle a tat
Testing one, two man whatcha gonna do
Bad news misused give me some truth
You got too much to lose
Whose side are we on today, anyway
Okay, whatever you say
Wrong and resolute but in the mood to obey
Station to station desensitizing the nation
Going, going, gone
Aus dem Album In Between Dreams der Song Good People (Bei Amazon.de probehören)
