Noisettes – Ragtop Car

the-noisettes-v-festival-day-2-02De Engelse groep Noisettes bestaat uit zangeres Shingai Shoniwa & gitarist Dan Smith en maakt allerlei soorten muziek op hun album Contact uit 2012. Van electropop naar bossa nova naar retro soul. Mijn favoriete nummer is Ragtop Car, dat juist meer country-achtig is, met alleen mandoline en percussie als instrumentatie. Het is een heerlijk opgewekt lied over het rijden in een cabrio en wordt lekker gezongen door Shoniwa, met mooie meerstemmigheid van de twee muzikanten.

Sitting in a ragtop car with you.
It feels like my freedom is a passport.
Shining brightly inside the pocket,
so deep inside of my soul.
You and me together gonna take on the world.
Look out ‘cause we’re coming on strong.
And the world is our oasis.
And we can drink on them with a victory song.
Though there are many obstacles ahead.
We will not give up ‘til we are dead.

Two souls together sitting in a ragtop car.
And I believe we’re bound for glory.
Everybody knows the same old story.
Keep the rain behind you
and the sun straight up ahead.

Seeing all the colours of the rainbow.
I done told my people goodbye.
I made love with my man for the very last time.
Now I’m changing up the switches on the radio.
I didn’t dream on make it this far.
Now I’m flying down the highway my way.
What? Two fingers in the air.
Though there are many obstacles ahead.
We will not give up ‘til we are dead.

Two souls together sitting in a ragtop car.
And I believe we’re bound for glory.
Everybody knows the same old story.
Keep the rain behind you
and the sun straight up ahead.

There’ll be no happy ending.
And there’ll be no goodbyes.

Two souls together sitting in a ragtop car.
And I believe we’re bound for glory.
Everybody knows the same old story.
Keep the rain behind you
and the sun straight up ahead.
