The man with the golden gun*

Posted by : Le poinçonneur | 10 abr. 2011 | Published in


He has a powerful weapon.
He charges a million a shot.
An assassin that's second to none,
the man with the golden gun.

Lurking in some darkened doorway,
or crouched on a roof top somewhere.
In the next room, or this very one,
the man with the golden gun.

Love is required whenever he's hired,
it comes just before the kill.
No-one can catch him, no hit man can match him
for his million dollar skill.

One golden shot means another poor victim,
has come to a glittering end.
For a price, he'll erase anyone.
The man with the golden gun.

His eye may be on you or me.
Who will he bang?
We shall see. Oh yeah!

Love is required whenever he's hired,
it comes just before the kill.
No-one can catch him, no hit man can match him
for his million dollar skill.

One golden shot means another poor victim,
has come to a glittering end.
If you want to get rid of someone,
the man with the golden gun

Will get it done.
He'll shoot anyone.
With his golden gun.

Lulu, Capitol.

*Me duelen ya los dedos de teclear reivindicando las perlas que Roger Moore dio a la cultura occidental interpretando al mayor siervo de Su Graciosa Majestad. Moore -icono- despojó a double-O-seven de la solemnidad -a ratos excesiva- con que lo había recubierto Connery, ayudando a redescubrir a un personaje que, como todo grande, hizo de su decadencia progreso. El hombre de la pistola de oro (1974) es, probablemente, el momento cumbre del encuentro entre un carácter legendario y el camp más absoluto. Ayudado por Britt Ekland, Maud Adams, Hervé Villechaize -el polémico enano imitador de Felipe González en los programas de Javier Gurruchaga en la TVE de Pilar Miró- y, sobre todo, el enorme Christopher Lee en el papel del colorista villano Scaramanga, el filme, kilático, acumula bouquet en las estanterías de todo buen aficionado conforme pasan los años. Redescúbranlo, empezando por la estupenda title song de la británica Lulu que aquí les dejo. Feliz semana.
