ACIDPoPSoNG - Passengers (U2 and Brian Eno) 1995.

Original Soundtracks 1 est un album de 1995 enregistré par U2 et Brian Eno en tant que projet parallèle, sous le pseudonyme de Passengers.


La moitié de l'album est instrumentale, et les titres vocaux s'éloignent légèrement de l'univers habituel de U2. Parmi ces titres, le delicat "Miss Sarajevo", featuring le ténor italien Luciano Pavarotti, est considéré comme le plus mémorable. En 2005, dans un article du magazine Rolling Stones, Bono nominait "Your Blue Room" comme l'une des chansons de U2 qu'il préférait.
Redécouvrons ces deux petites perles...

Gm C Gm C F Am
Gm
Is there a time to keep the distance
C
A time to turn your eyes away
Gm
Is there a time for keeping your head down
C
Forgetting all of your day
Gm
Is there a time for curl and lipstik
C
A time for cutting hair
Gm
Is there a time for High Street shopping
C
To find the right dress to wear.
F Gm
Here she comes, please turn around
F Am
Here she comes, to take her crown.

Gm C
Dici che il fiume trova la via al mare
Gm C
E come il fiume giungerai a me
Gm C
Oltre i confini e le terre assetate
Gm C
Dici che come fiume giungerà.
F Gm
Here she comes, let's turn around
F Am
Here she comes, to take her crown.

Gm
Is there a time to run for cover
C
Is there a time for kiss and tell
Gm
Is there a time for different colors,
C
Different means you find it hard to spell
Gm
Is there a time for First Communion
C
A time for Miss 17
Gm
Is there a time to change your necklance
C
Is there a time to be a unique queen.
F Gm
Here she comes, beauty praise the crown
F Am
Here she comes, so real in her crown

[Pavarotti]
Gm C
Dici che il fiume trova la via al mare
Gm C
E come il fiume giungerai a me
Gm C
Oltre i confini e le terre assetate
Gm C F Gm
Dici che come fiume, come fiume l'Amore giungerà
F Am Gm C
L'Amore, che non posso più pregare
Gm C
E' nell'Amore che non so più sperare
Gm C
E quell'Amore non so più aspettare.

Gm
Is there a time for tie and ribbons
C
A time for Xmas trees
Gm
Is there a time for laying tables
C
When the night is set you freeze.

Em D
It's time to go again
F C
To your blue room
Em D
Got some questions to ask of you
F C
In your blue room

The air is clean
Your skin is clear
I've had enough of
hanging round here
It's a different kind of conversation
In your blue room

Saw me coming
In and outside
Saw me coming
Somewhere to hide

And time is a string of pearls
Your blue room
Once again
See the future just hanging there
Your blue room
A new frame
A new perspective
Looking down on my objectives
Your instructions
Whatever their directions
Your blue room

Saw me coming
East by the moon
Saw me coming
Can you feel

(It's allright)

Your blue room

One day I'll be back
Your blue room
Yeah, I hope I remember where it's at
Your blue room
F E C
We see me slide down
G D C G
Won't you give me a home
D Em (puis une boucle de Em D F C)
So much for change

Solo: Base Em D F C

Zooming in
Zooming out
Nothing I can't do without
A lense to it all up close
To Magnify what no one knows

Never in company
Never alone
No car alarm
No cellular phone




"Your Blue Room" était prévue comme le second single après "Miss Sarajevo," mais l'idée fut abandonnée suite aux mauvaises ventes de l'album. La chanson fut tout de même re-éditée en face B du single "Staring at the Sun" en 1997. C'est Adam Clayton, à la basse dans U2, qui récite le vers final.
