Weekly Basslines: #56: The New Year (Death Cab For Cutie)

Mein Neujahrsgruß kommt dieses Jahr von der amerikanischen Independent-Band "Death Cab For Cutie". Ich habe folgende Live-Version des Songs transkribiert, da der Bass hier am "bässten" zu hören war:


So this is the new year
And i don't feel any different
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance (in the distance)

So this is the new year
And I have no resolutions
For selfl assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions

So everybody put your best suit or dress on
Let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
As thirty dialogues bleed into one

I wish the world was flat like the old days
Then i could travel just by folding a map
No more airplanes, or speedtrains, or freeways
There'd be no distance that can hold us back

There'd be no distance that could hold us back
So this is the new year




 
Die Studio-Version ist einen Halbton höher, wobei wahrscheinlich der Bass umgestimmt wurde.
 
Ich wünsche Euch ein tolles neues Jahr!
