Heartbeats

Hey people! my friends and I had an AMAZING week in Valencia! I don´t know if you heared about the festivity of FALLAS, but I will definitely talk to you about them soon, and show you some pictures too ;)


A few years ago, when I was student, ERASMUS student in England (the time of my life!) a very special person showed me the lovely music of a half swedish-half argentinian songwriter called José Gonzalez, and I instantly felt caught by his simple and beautiful lyrics. First heared "Hand in your heart", which is by the way a sad song, but then I discovered I heared this guy somewhere else before. I am sure many of you saw on TV a spot by Sony, the advertisement of the BRAVIA tvs, where thousand of colorful rubber balls jumped down the streets of San Francisco. "Heartbeats" is the name of the song originally written by "The Knife", and definitely one of my favourites of all times.
Well, this week we discovered another cover version of that song by a great english singer, the blond cutie Ellie Goulding. I cannot really decide which version I like the most, but who cares? It´s still a beautiful song.

One night to be confused
One night to speed up truth
We had a promise paid
Four hands and then away

Both under influence
We had a divine sense
To know what to say
Mind is a razor blade

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough
for me, no

One night of magic rush
The start a simple touch
One night to push and scream
And then relief

Ten days of perfect tunes
The colors red and blue
We had a promise made
We were in love

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough
for me, no

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough

And you, you knew the hand of the devil
And you, kept us awake with wolves teeth
Sharing different heartbeats
In one night

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough
for me, no

To call for hands of above
to lean on
Wouldn't be good enough



if you like the Sony advertisement, I recommend you to see the making of, just by clicking here.

And this is the live cover version by Ellie Goulding for the BBC Radio 1:
