The Crazy World of Arthur Brown




The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown. Por si el título no es suficientemente explícito, sepan que lo que encontramos dentro es pura locura, una deliciosa locura psicodélica, con alguna querencia progresiva en la línea de Vanilla Fudge. La histriónica voz y la extravagante interpretación de Brown, los alocados teclados, así como la frenética base rítmica, hacen de este disco una experiencia divertidísima en la que además del citado single, encontramos otras grandes canciones, como la inicial Prelude-Nightmare, que sirve como presentación a su mundo surrealista y excitante. Especial atención merece la portentosa versión del famoso tema de Screamin' Jay Hawkins, I Put A Spell On You.



Aquí teneis la letra del hit del álbum FIRE:

CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN

FIRE - 14/08/1968
1 week at #1 - 14 weeks on chart

I am the god of hell fire, and I bring you
Fire, I'll take you to burn
Fire, I'll take you to learn
I'll see you burn

You fought hard and you saved and earned
But all of it's going to burn
And your mind, your tiny mind
You know you've really been so blind
Now 's your time, burn your mind
You're falling far too far behind
Oh no, oh no, oh no, you're gonna burn

Fire, to destroy all you've done
Fire, to end all you've become
I'll feel you burn

You've been living like a little girl
In the middle of your little world
And your mind, your tiny mind
You know you've really been so blind
Now 's your time, burn your mind
You're falling far too far behind
OOhhh
Fire, I'll take you to burn
Fire, I'll take you to learn
You're gonna burn, you're gonna burn
You're gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn

Fire, I'll take you to burn
Fire, I'll take you to learn
Fire, I'll take you to bed
