Rent*

You dress me up, I'm your puppet.
You buy me things, I love it.
You bring me food, I need it.
You give me love, I feed it.
 
And look at the two of us in sympathy
with everything we see.
I never want anything, it's easy:
you buy whatever I need.
 
But look at my hopes, look at my dreams,
the currency we've spent.
I love you, you pay my rent.
 
You phone me in the evening on hearsay
and bought me caviar.
You took me to a restaurant off Broadway
to tell me who you are.
 
We never-ever argue, we never calculate
the currency we've spent.
I love you, you pay my rent.
 
I'm your puppet,
I love it.
And look at the two of us in sympathy
and sometimes ecstasy.
 
Words mean so little, and money less
when you're lying next to me.
 
But look at my hopes, look at my dreams,
the currency we've spent.
I love you, you pay my rent.

Liza Minnelli, Sony Music. Original de Neil Tennant y Chris Lowe.

*Lanzado en 1989 -como recordarán mis fanses protocuarentones-, Results significó
 el acercamiento -puntual, lamentablemente- de la diva Minnelli al pop sintetizado,
 vía el incontestable concurso de los Pet Shop Boys. Trátase, huelga decir, de uno
 de mis discos de cabecera, siendo la descarnada Rent, quizá, su corte más señero.
Zambúllanse a la de ya. No se arrepentirán.

    La Minnelli, quizás por alejarse de cierto prototipo de belleza "standard" siempre me resultó exreaordinariamente atractiva. ¡Y qué voz!

    Minnelli es muy lo más, Koolau.

    Y feliz año, como es natural :)
