Jag kollar på amerikanska X-factor

och min favorit, Melanie, sjöng just Desperado av Eagles.
En lysande text om missbruk:

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
You been out ridin' fences for so long now
Oh, you're a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin' you
Can hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She'll beat you if she's able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can't get

Desperado, oh, you ain't gettin' no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that's just some people talkin'
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're losin' all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin', but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you, before it's too late

Otroligt vacker! Har du någonsin hört Jill Johnssons tolkning av den? Absolut värt att göra annars.

Den här sången har jag många många gånger spelat för någon som en gång var min vän - fast jag vet inte riktigt om han förstod att det var av omtanke. :)

Men Eagles orginal är bäst, eller hur?
