LONDON , LONDON , …TOKYO , TOKYO – CIBELLE & DEVANDRA BANHART

Cold rainy tuesday in Tokyo , I would rather start our night with something from the other side of the planet , Cibelle , a brasilian song singer writer who mix bossa , mpb , eletronica , and a bunch of other stuffs . In this video clip she sings with Devandra Banhart , another guy who mix a bunch of stuffs and it is hard to describe what kind of style they are .

London London is originaly written by the Caetano Veloso , in the time when he was exiled from Brasil to England . He was considered a danger for the country during that time(1969 ) .

In the lyrics we can feel the strong Saudade feeling of “WANT TO COME BACK HOME BUT I CAN’T…”.

London London (by Caetano Veloso ) lyrics :

I’m wandering round and round nowhere to go
I’m lonely in London London is lovely so
I cross the streets without fear
Everybody keeps the way clear
I know, I know no one here to say hello
I know they keep the way clear
I am lonely in London without fear
I’m wandering round and round here nowhere to go
While my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky
Oh Sunday, Monday, Autumm pass by me
And people hurry on so peacefully
A group approaches a policeman
He seems so pleased to please them
It’s good at least to live and I agree
He seems so pleased at least
And it’s so good to live in peace and
Sunday, Monday, years and I agree
While my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky
I choose no face to look at
Choose no way
I just happen to be here
And it’s ok
Green grass, blue eyes, gray sky, God bless
Silent pain and happiness
I came around to say yes, and I say
But my eyes
Go looking for flying saucers in the sky
