Talking Heads "Totally Nude"

Bulle - quelques pensées baladeuses autour de Talking Heads "Totally Nude"

Texte :

Tu frissonnes un peu, était-ce vraiment une bonne idée d’aller jusqu’au bout de l’idée de nature. Et pourtant, cette caresse du vent, tes gestes soudain libérés, cette impression de démarche déliée… même pas besoin de vertu pour te draper. Tu en aurais presque oublié que tu étais un animal urbain ; les regards amusés, outrés ou gênés de tes compatriotes te le rappellent avec insistance. Pourtant « totally nude », la traduction semblait évidente, mais peut vraiment faire confiance à un gars qui chantait, il y a quarante ans, depuis la tête d’un psycho killer ?

You're shivering a bit, was it really a good idea to go all the way with the idea of nature. And yet, this caress of the wind, your suddenly liberated gestures, this impression of an uncluttered gait... you don't even need virtue to drape yourself. You have almost forgotten that you are an urban animal; the amused, outraged or embarrassed looks of your compatriots remind you of this with insistence. Yet "totally nude", the translation seemed obvious, but can you really trust a guy who, forty years ago, was singing from the head of a psycho killer ?
