****
kirsty maccoll goes street. spätes crossover-produkt, zugeschnitten auf die talentierte sängerin. bei der notengebung schwankte ich zwischen 4 und 5. song war 1991 in den britischen charts.
*****
wenn du schwankst, dann gebe ich eine 5...
****
Reichte für Platz 23 in den UK charts im Mai/Juni 1991. Sicher auch keine schlechte Nummer.
****
Nicht schlecht. Fand ich aber immer etwas langweilig!
*****
Der Song ist sicher nicht repräsentativ für Kirsty MacColl (R.I.P.), und ich hab ansonsten auch nicht allzu viel mit ihrer Musik am Hut (zumindest bisher), aber dieser Song gefällt mir irgendwie. Sozialkritischer Text.
***
3+. Musikalisch ziemlich einspurig.
*****
Reicht für eine gute 5! War anfänglich von dem Stück begeistert und hatte mir damals sogar die CD zugelegt. Im Laufe der Zeit hat sich die Begeisterung etwas gelegt, nur etwas.
****
Ein schwächeres Lied von Kirsty, hat irgendwie keine schöne Melodie
*****
Gefällt mir im Maxi Mix sehr gut, die Album-Version wirkt in der Tat etwas eintönig.<br><br>Walking down Madison - I swear I never had a gun <br>No I never shot no-one - I was only having fun <br>Walking down Madison - swear I never had a gun <br><br>I was philosophizing some <br>Checking out the bums <br>See you give 'em your nickels, your pennies and dimes <br>But you can't give 'em hope in these mercenary times, oh no <br>And you feel real guilty about the coat on your back <br>And the sandwich you had, oh no <br><br>From an uptown apartment to a knife on the A train <br>It's not that far <br>From the sharks in the penthouse to the rats in the basement <br>It's not that far <br>To the bag lady frozen asleep in the park <br>Oh no it's not that far <br>Would you like to see some more? <br>I can show you if you'd like to <br><br>Walking down Madison - I swear I never had a gun <br>No I never shot no-one - wouldn't do it just for fun <br>Walking down Madison - trying to keep my head screwed on <br><br>I was philosophizing some <br>Checking out the nuns <br>When you get to the corner don't look at those freaks <br>Keep your head down low and stay quick on your feet, oh yeah <br><br>The beaming boy from Harlem with the airforce coat <br>The ones who died <br>The ones who tried <br>The ones that sit and gloat <br>From an uptown apartment to a knife on the A train <br>It's not that far <br>From the sharks in the penthouse to the rats in the basement <br>It's not that far <br>To the bag lady frozen asleep on the church steps <br>It's not that far <br>Would you like to see some more? <br>I can show you if you'd like to <br><br>Within every city and town there's a Madison <br>Frozen lives for whom nothing's happening <br>Hungry children is a mother's dilemma <br>Dumpster diving to feed her baby Emma <br>So you walk on by like it doesn't affect you <br>The held out hand that you pay no respect to <br>Nickels and dimes won't even buy your guilt <br>Another wino burnt to death in his quilt <br>It's a cardboard city, newspaper metropolis <br>The system can't cope or keep on top of this <br>The authorities come as you're not for display <br>Do they solve the problem no they move him away <br>They're in a vicious circle of no fixed abode <br>The social won't pay 'em the money they're owed <br>When you've got no money you can't pay rent <br>Hypothermia kills 'cos the system is bent <br><br>From an uptown apartment to a knife on the A train <br>It's not that far <br>From the sharks in the penthouse to the rats in the basement <br>It's not that far <br>To the bag lady frozen asleep in the park <br>Oh no it's not that far <br>Would you like to see some more? <br>I can show you if you'd like to <br><br>From an uptown apartment to a knife on the A train <br>It's not that far <br>From the sharks in the penthouse to the rats in the basement <br>It's not that far <br>To the bag lady frozen asleep on the church steps <br>It's not that far <br>Would you like to see some more? <br>I can show you if you'd like to <br><br>In the subway sits a vacuous man <br>His grip on life is a bent tin can <br>It's a holy shrine where he burns his light <br>It makes things easy and removes his plight <br>For an hour or two but he can't escape <br>They're all penned in with government tape <br>There are good samaritans who bring the soup <br>The sally army with their bibles and boots <br>You can see yourself as it's not too far <br>One short trip you don't who they are <br>Till the night comes then it all comes back <br>Like the smell of patchouli and the armies of rats <br>It's a shame to be human it's a human shame <br>It seems we've forgotten we're one and the same <br><br>
****
eigentlich grundlangweilig, ihre stimme macht aber den 4* aus..
*****
sehr gut
***
ein Stück aus den 90er, das man nicht kennen muss – langweilig, zudem ist der männliche Part störend – 3*...
*****
Mamma mia, was die bei DRS 3 wieder ausgegraben haben... Macht Spass, sowas am Radio zu hören!
****
eine gute 4
**
Peaked at #58 in Australia, 1991.
****
Irgendwie ganz ungewohnt dieser Sound für Kirsty! Vielleicht wollte man sich bissle den 90ern anpassen und bisschen was moderneres rausbringen! Ich finds ok, aber sie hat klar bessere Singles, obwohl diese Nummer nochmal ganz gut lief für sie, war zB eine #12 in Irland!
****
Einer der bekanntesten und sicherlich auch kommerziell erfolgreichsten Songs von Kirsty MacColl.
****
<br>Extrem Poppiger Song, also mir gefällt er.
