“Starry Eyes” – THE RECORDS
por on Octubre 18, 2016 en

Will Birch y John Wicks, fundaron The Records en 1978. A Will se le ocurrió el nombre en la bañera de su casa. Entre sus influencias destacan Big Star, The Raspberries, Blue Ash, Badfinger y el LP “Revolver” de los Beatles.

En 1978 The Records se unieron al “The Be Stiff Tour” como teloneros de Rachel Sweet. Grabaron el sencillo “Starry Eyes” y firmaron con Virgin Records. Su álbum de debut “Shades in Bed” (también conocido como “The Records”) les dio una reputación, sobre todo en los EE.UU., donde “Starry Eyes” tuvo cierto éxito.

En 1980, Jude Cole (ex Moon Martin) se unió al grupo coincidiendo con la preparación de su segundo disco, “Crashes”, que incluye “Hearts in her Eyes”, una canción que Will y John escribieron originalmente para “The Searchers”. En 1981 grabaron su tercer y último álbum. The Records se disolvieron en 1982.

Demostrándose una vez más que la convivencia dentro de grupos musicales por diversas razones es de lo más efímera en el 99% de los casos. Aún así, 4 años superan la media, la cual es todavía menor.

LETRA: “Starry Eyes” – THE RECORDS

While you were off in France, we were stranded in the British Isles
Left to fall apart amongst your passports and your files
We never asked for miracles but they were our concern
Did you really think we’d sit it out and wait for your return?

I don’t want to argue, I ain’t gonna budge
Won’t you take this number down before you call up the judge?
I don’t want to argue, there’s nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes and be on your way

While you were on the beach
Were you dreaming all about your share?
Planning to invest it all to cover wear and tear?
We paid for all the phone calls, the money’s off the shelf
Don’t you know that while you’re gone away, I’ve got to help myself?

I don’t want to argue, I ain’t gonna budge

Won’t you take this number down before you call up the judge?
I don’t want to argue, there’s nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes and be on your way

While you were in the pool, we were meeting with the boys upstairs
Talking to the money men and carrying out affairs
We had no time for cocktails or working up a tan
The boys have all been spoken to, the writ has hit the fan

I don’t want to argue, I ain’t gonna budge
Won’t you take this number down before you call up the judge?
I don’t want to argue, there’s nothing to say
Get me out of your starry eyes and be on your way
