PoP PoLARoIDS From The Eighties

C'est incroyable ce pouvoir mélodieux qu'ils dégageaient tous dans les années 80.


Certes! leurs brushings relevaient de l'autoflagellation cappilaire mais n'oublions pas qu'il s'agissait des pionniers de l' électro-chanson, ceux qui, tels des polaroïdes, n'ont jamais prétendu fournir de l'éternel mais qui y sont quand même parvenus.

Ci-dessous: "Eyes Without A Face" by Billy Idol (1984)
C          Am
I'm all out of hope
Em G
One more battle brave could bring a fall
When I'm far from home
Don't call me on the phone
To tell me you're alone
It's easy to deceive
It's easy to tease
But hard to get release

F G
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage
Dm
Eyes without a face

Got no human grace
Em
Your eyes without a face
C

I spend so much time
Believing all the lies
To keep the dream alive
Now it makes me sad
It makes me mad at truth
For loving what was you

Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace
Your eyes without a face


Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers

Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Got no human grace
Your eyes without a face

Now I close my eyes
And I wonder why
I don't despise



Ci-dessous: "Big In Japan" by Alphaville (1984).

Dm
Winter's cityside
Bb C
Crystal bits of snowflakes all
A
around my head and in the wind
Dm
I had no illusions
Bb C
That I'd ever find a glimps of summer's
A
heatwaves in your eyes
Dm Bb C
You did what you did to me,
A Bb
now it's history I see
Gm A
Here's my comeback on the road again
Dm Bb C
Things will happen while they can
A Bb
I will wait here for my man tonight,
Gm A
it's easy when your big in japan
Dm Bb
When your big in japan, tonight
C A Bb
Big in japan, be tight, big in japan
Gm A
where the eastern sea's so blue
Dm Bb
Big in japan, alright, pay,
C A
then I'll sleep by your side


Bb Gm
Things are easy when you're big
A Dm
in japan, when you're big in japan

Neon on my naked skin
Passing silhouettes of strange illuminated
mannequins
Shall I stay here at the zoo
Or shall I go and change my point of view
for other ugly scenes
You did what you did to me,
now it's history I see...
Things will happen while they can
I will wait here for my man tonight,
it's easy when you're big in japan




Ci-dessous " Smalltown Boy" by Bronski Beat (1984):


Bm A Em D
Bm   A   Em   D

Bm A Em D
You leave in the morning
with everything you own in a little black case
Bm A Em D
Alone on a platform
the wind and the rain on a sad and lo-nely face

Bm A Em D

Bm A Em D
Mother will never understand
why you had to leave
Bm A Em D
But the answers you
seek will never be found at home
Bm A Em D
the love that you need will
never be found at home

Bm A Em D
Run away, turn away
Bm A Em D
Cry to your soul
Bm  A         em   D
Cry   to your soul
Bm A Em D
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.
Bm A Em D
Run away, turn away, run away, turn away, run away.

Bm A Em D
Pushed around and kicked around
always a lonely boy

Bm A Em D
You were the one that theyd talk about
around town as they put you down

Bm A Em D
And as hard as they would try
they'd hurt to make you cry

Bm A Em D
But you never cried to them
just to your soul

Bm A Em D
You never cried to them
Bm   A          em    D
just to your soul to your soul

Bm A Em D
Run away, turn away, run away,
turn away, run away.

Bm A Em D
Run away, turn away, run away,
turn away, run away.


Bm A Em D
Run away, turn away, run away,
turn away, run away.

Bm A Em D
Run away, turn away, run away,
turn away, run away.



Ci-dessous: "Flash In The Night" by Secret Service (1981):

As a break of dawn came closer
All my hopes seemed so forlorn.
The misty signs of laughter
And the light eluded all.
My despair was caught in motion

A face just barely true,
Shadows in blue.

A flash in the night . . .
In the changing of the season
Releasing one lost name.
The scar once healed forever
Dissolving in the rain.
A twig snapped in the clearing

A glimpse of golden skin
My face within

My despair was caught in motion.
A face just barely true
Shadows in blue.

A flash in the night . . .




Ci-dessous: "Cambodia" by Kim Wilde (1982).



Dm
Well he was in Thailand based. She was an airforce wife.

F
He used to fly weekends, it was the easy life.

C
But then it turned around, and he began to change.

GmC
She didn't wonder then, she didn't think it strange.

Dm
But then he got a call, he had to leave that night.

F
He couldn't say too much, but it would be alright.

C
He didn't need to pack, they'd meet the next night.

GmCDmFGmCDm
He had a job to do, flying to Cambodia.






Dm
And as the nights passed by, she tried to trace the past.

F
The way he used to look, the way he used to laugh.

C
I guess she'll never know, what got inside his soul.

GmC
She couldn't make it out, just couldn't take it all.

Dm
He had the saddest eyes the girl had ever seen.

F
He used to cry some nights, as though he lived a dream.

C
And as she held him close, he used to search her face.

GmCDmFGmCDm
As though she knew the truth, lost inside Cambodia.






Dm
But then a call came through, they said he'd soon be home.

FA#Gm
She had to pack a case and they would make a rendez-vous.

Dm
But now the year has passed and not a single word and

FA#Gm
all the love she knew has disappeared out in the haze.

DmA#Gm
Cambodia - Don't cry now - No tears now.


Dm
And now the years have passed without a single word.

FA#
But there is only one thing left I know for sure,

CDm
She won't see his face again.





Ci-dessous: "Square Rooms" by Al Corley (1984).
Thinking in square rooms
A human without illusions

Sad strains on a sad face
is that what we've come to?

Is the world bold?
this love old?
moving nowhere
and it's gonna cold.
The wind stops
the clouds go
we're all alone.
Oh, Oh, I know
I can see those.
Oh, oh, I know
I can see those.
I can feel those
I can see those.

Oh, oh, square rooms
oh, oh, square rooms.
They don't listen
they don't care
if a man is in despair.
Oh, oh, square rooms
oh, oh, square rooms. ...

Walks, long and long
clears the vision of one with one

And you still move me
you undo me like you've always done.
But I realize now we've not made you
out of words now

Just you and me
just you and me until the end of time.

Oh, oh, I know
I can see those. . . .

Oh, oh, square rooms
oh, oh, square rooms...
