46.- The Hives – Hate To Say I Told You So

15 de febrero de 2016

The Hives son un grupazo sueco que da unos conciertos cojonudos. Les he visto tres veces en Bilbao y me lo he pasado genial. Fueron en la presentación del Tyrannosaurus Hives (2004), en la de The Black and White Album (2007) y en el BBK Live 2013 tras la publicación de Lex Hives (2012).

Hate To Say I Told You So del álbum Veni Vidi Vicious (2000) fue la canción que me enganchó al grupo. Allí le acompañaban Main Offender o Die, alright!. En 2004 Walk Idiot WalkTwo-Timing Touch and Broken Bones o Abra Cadaver. En 2007 Tick Tick Boom, Won’t Be Long, You Got it All… Wrong. En 2012 Come On!, Go Right Ahead o 1000 Answers. 

Es un grupo que siempre tiene algo que ofrecer, que siempre me resulta entretenido y apetece ir a verles en directo. Para las navidades de 2008 sacaron, con Cindy Lauper, A Chritmas Duel una canción muy chula con unas letras no muy navideñas que digamos.

“A Christmas Duel”
(with Cyndi Lauper)

[Pelle]
I bought no gifts this year
and I slept with your sister
I know I should have thought twice
Before I kissed her
But with the year we had last
And the dress that she wore
I just went along for the ride
And I came back for more

And I’m sorry baby…..

[Cyndi]
That’s all ok honey cause see…

I bought no tree this year
And I slept with your brother
I wrecked your Daddy’s car
And went down on your Mother.
I set your record collection on fire
And said I never knew
Felt kind of bad about that
And I know you did too

[pre chorus 1 (both)]
So whatever you say, it’s all fine by me
Who the fuck anyway wants a Christmas tree
Cause the snow keeps on fallin’ even though we were bad
It’ll cover the filth, we should both just be glad

[Chorus 1 (both)]
And spend this Christmas together

[verse 2]
[Pelle]
I married you last year
Bet you thought I was sober, right?
But I was drunk as a skunk and I made a mistake
This could all have been over

[Cyndi]
Ah honey please don’t
Excuse your behaviour
Cause I hired a hitman and changed your will
It’s now all in my favour

[pre chorus 2 (both)]
So whatever you say, it’s all fine by me
Who the fuck anyway wants a Christmas tree
Cause the snow keeps on fallin’ even though we were bad
It’ll cover the filth, we should both just be glad

[Chorus 2 (both)]
And spend this Christmas together
[repeats]

[Pelle]
Holding on without any reason
Cause something’s strong this holiday season

[pre chorus 3 (both)]
So whatever you say, it’s all fine by me
And who the fuck anyway wants a Christmas tree
Cause the snow keeps on fallin’ even though we were bad
It’ll cover the filth, we should both just be glad

[Chorus 3 (both)]
And spend this Christmas together
[repeats]
