Dave Grohl, solistul Foo Fighters, i-a scris în adolescență lui Ian MacKaye, cerându-i ajutorul pentru a putea lua legătura cu oameni din industrie. La 14 ani, i-a lăsat un număr de telefon, dar și orele la care poate fi sunat. #asaseface 😀

Ian MacKaye, fondatorul Dischord Records, membru al trupelor Minor Threat și Fugazi, punk icon, nu își uită fanii și păstrează amintirile de la ei. Așa s-a întâmplat și cu scrisoarea de la Dave, pentru care Ian era/este „my hero”.

Foo Fighters este în Music ON Playlist cu Best of you, primul single lansat de pe albumul In Your Honour (2005). Dave Grohl spune că a scris piesa inspirat fiind de aparițiile lui John Kerry, candidat la președinție în campania electorală din 2004 (SUA) și că este despre „a da la o parte lucrurile care te limitează”.

“Best Of You” – versuri

I’ve got another confession to make

I’m your fool

Everyone’s got their chains to break

Holdin’ you

Were you born to resist or be abused?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Are you gone and onto someone new?

I needed somewhere to hang my head

Without your noose

You gave me something that I didn’t have

But had no use

I was too weak to give in

Too strong to lose

My heart is under arrest again

But I break loose

My head is giving me life or death

But I can’t choose

I swear I’ll never give in

I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Has someone taken your faith?

Its real, the pain you feel

You trust, you must

Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Oh…

Oh…Oh…Oh…Oh…

Has someone taken your faith?

Its real, the pain you feel

The life, the love you’d die to heal

The hope that starts the broken hearts

You trust, you must

Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

I’ve got another confession my friend

I’m no fool

I’m getting tired of starting again

Somewhere new

Were you born to resist or be abused?

I swear I’ll never give in

I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Has someone taken your faith?

Its real, the pain you feel

You trust, you must

Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Oh…
