In memories of WBM 1) Andromeda Heights by Prefab Sprout

andromeda

ウィニングブルーメタリックと言ってまず浮かぶのはBluebellsなんですが、これは前にも書いたので、その次はと言うと97年制作のプリファブ5作目に当たるこのアルバム。特にアルバムラストを飾る12曲目の同名曲はひっくり返るほどの名作だと勝手に思っている曲です。コード進行がコステロのShipbuilding(これも超がつく名曲)そっくりで、つまり名曲。歌詞もパディ・マクアルーンのポップ嗜好が炸裂しています。あまりにも素晴らしいので全詞掲載。
We're building a home on the side of a mountain
Above the clouds, next to the sky
And after our labours the stars will be neighbours
We'll take our place with them in space
We're not using concrete or plaster or wood -
They'd lower the tone of our new neighbourhood
And mortar will crumble with age and neglect
We're building our home upon love and respect
And when we've built it we'll call it andromeda heights
When we've built it we'll call it Andromeda Heights
When we've built it we'll call it Andromeda Heights
We're building a home on the side of a mountain
Above the clouds, next to the sky
Our plans are ambitious - a blueprint of wishes
That will come true and when they do...
Folks in the valley will look up and say
You've finally built it can we come and stay?
And cynics will marvel and say we confess -
There were times when we thought it was just an address!
But now that we've seen it we know it's andromeda heights
Now we've seen it we know it's Andromeda Heights
Now we've seen it we know it's Andromeda Heights.
We're building a home on the side of a mountain
Above the clouds, next to the sky
And after our labours the stars will be neighbours
We'll take our place with them in space
