Las Canciones de ‘La la Land’

Es sin lugar a dudas la película de la que más se está hablando estos días. ‘La la Land’ es un espectáculo visual y su música gran culpable de su éxito. Por ello, teniendo en cuenta lo difícil que es que una película de este género se encuentre en la cima, hemos querido acercarnos a sus canciones para ver que tienen de especial sus notas y sus letras. Son un total de 15 las pistas que podemos encontrar en la banda sonora, las cuales han sido ya galardonadas con Globos de Oro en las categorías de Mejor banda sonora y Mejor canción original. El éxito, más que merecido. 

City Of Stars

Esta es la canción de la película que todos tenemos en mente cuando pensamos en ‘La La Land’. Será una campaña espectacular de marketing probablemente la que la haya introducido en nuestras cabezas, pero lo cierto es que lo tiene todo para quedarse ahí. Frases cortas, preguntas que no esperan respuesta y sobre todo, la eterna búsqueda del amor, y todo lo que supone encontrarlo en las palabras y sentimiento justos.

[Sebastian’s Verse: Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone]
City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
There’s so much that I can’t see
Who knows?
I felt it from the first embrace I shared with you
That now our dreams
They’ve finally come true
[Mia’s Verse: Emma Stone & Ryan Gosling]
City of stars
Just one thing everybody wants
There in the bars
And through the smokescreen of the crowded restaurants
It’s love
Yes, all we’re looking for is love from someone else
A rush
A glance
A touch
A dance
[Duet: Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone]
A look in somebody’s eyes
To light up the skies
To open the world and send it reeling
A voice that says, I’ll be here
And you’ll be alright
I don’t care if I know
Just where I will go
‘Cause all that I need is this crazy feeling
A rat-tat-tat on my heart
[Outro: Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone]
Think I want it to stay
City of stars
Are you shining just for me?
City of stars
You never shined so brightly

A Lovely Night

Una de las mejores letras de la canción. Este dueto es una conversación ingeniosa bellamente ensalzada por el acompañamiento instrumental, que nos deja ver más que las propias palabras. Una ‘persecución’, de lo que podría ser en una noche maravillosa.

The sun is nearly gone
No lights are turning on
A silver shine that stretches to the sea
We stumble on a view
That’s tailor made for two
What a shame those two are you and me
Some other girl and I
Would love the swirling sky
But there’s only you and I
And we’ve got, no shot
This could never be
You’re not the type for me
Really?
And there’s not a spark in sight
What a, a waste of a lovely night
You say there’s nothing here
Well let’s make something clear
I think I’ll be the one to make that call
But you’ll call
I know you looked so cute
In your polyester suit
It’s wool
You’re right I’d never fall for you at all
And maybe this appeals
To someone not in heels
Or to any girl who feels
There’s some chance
For romance
But, I’m frankly feeling nothing
Is that so?
Or it could be less than nothing
Good to know
So you agree?
That’s right
What a waste of a lovely night

Start a Fire

John Legend aporta vitalidad a la banda sonora de la película gracias a esta canción que no te levanta de la butaca para hacerte bailar porque a nadie le gustan que le chille un extraño en el cine.

[Verse 1]
I don’t know why I keep moving my body
I don’t know if this is wrong or if it’s right
I don’t know if there’s a beat, or something’s taking over me
And I just know I’ll feel so good tonight
[Verse 2]
I don’t know what your name is but I like it
I’ve been thinking ‘bout some things I wanna try
I don’t know what you came to do, but I wanna do it with you
And I just know I’ll feel so good tonight
[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, if we keep on dancing
Take our rhythm to new heights

Feel the heat of passion, baby
Light up the night
[Chorus]
We could start a fire
Come on, let it burn baby
We could start a fire
Let the tables turn baby
We could start a fire
[Bridge]
I just know I feel so good
Don’t you know I feel so good
I just know I feel so good
Tonight
[Verse 3]
I don’t care if this tuns into a riot
Lets get reckless, tear this place down to the floor
Turn the music way up loud
Can’t nobody stop us now
I just know I feel so good tonight
I just know I feel so good tonight
[Chorus]
We could start a fire
Come on, let it burn baby
We could start a fire
Let the tables turn baby
We could start a fire
[Outro]
I just know I feel so good
Don’t you know I feel so good
Don’t you know, don’t you know?
Tonight

Someone in the Crowd

Es una de las primeras canciones que escuchamos dentro de la película y nos mete de lleno en la misma. ¿Quieres un musical? ¿Qué mejor forma que toda una casa con dotes de canto preparándose para una noche de fiesta? Refleja de manera rotunda la vida de Hollywood.

You got the invitation
You got the right address
You need some medication?
The answer’s always yes
A little chance encounter
Could be the one you’ve waited for
Just squeeze a bit more
Tonight we’re on a mission
Tonight’s the casting call
If this is the real audition
Oh, God, help us all
You make the right impression
Then ev’rybody knows your name
We’re in the fast lane
Someone in the crowd
Could be the one you need to know
The one to fin’lly lift you off the ground
Someone in the crowd could
Take you where you wanna go
If you’re the someone ready to be found
The someone ready to be found
Do what you need to do
‘Til they discover you
And make you more than who
You’re seeing now
So with the stars aligned
I think I’ll stay behind
You’ve got to go and find
That someone in the crowd
That someone in the crowd
Is someone in the crowd the only thing you really see?
Watching while the world keeps spinning ‘round?
Somewhere there’s a place where I find who I’m gonna be
A somewhere that’s just waiting to be found
Someone in the crowd could be the one you need to know
The someone who could lift you off the ground
Someone in the crowd could take you where you wanna go
Someone in the crowd could make you
Someone in the crowd could take you
Flying off the ground
If you’re someone ready to be found
