Meu Lou Reed favorito: Gay e com uma tuba fazendo o contra-baixo



[Meu Lou Reed preferido vem do álbum Transformer, que eu ganhei numa fita K-7 da minha querida prima Sílvia Emanuela quando eu tinha 17 anos e passei um mês inesquecível na Espanha ainda de ressaca depois da longa noite do franquismo. No mesmo Transformer estava a famosa "Walk on the Wild Side," que não celebra o roquenrrol machão-cerveja-arroto-cigarro-no-bar-da-esquina mas uma outra onda, que nesse século XXI parece outro planeta, que continua existindo mas ainda mais clandestino. A tuba não me deixa mentir!]
 
Make Up

 
Your face when sleeping is sublime
and then you open up your eyes.

Then comes pancake factor number one,
eyeliner, rose hips and lip gloss, such fun.
You're a slick little girl.
You're a slick little girl.

Rouge and coloring, incense and ice,
perfume and kisses, oh, it's all so nice
You're a slick little girl.
You're just a slick little girl.

Now we're coming out,
out of our closets
out on the streets,
yeah, we're coming out

When you're in bed it's so wonderful.
It'd be so nice to fall in love.
When you get dressed I really get my fill.
People say that it's impossible

Gowns lovely made out of lace
and all the things that you do to your face
You're a slick little girl,
Oh, you're a slick little girl

Eyeliner, whitener, then color the eyes;
Yellow and green
Ooh, what a surprise
You're a slick little girl,
Oh, you're such a slick little girl

Now we're coming out, out of our closets
Out on the streets, yes, we're coming out
Yeah, we're coming out ...
