Les Thugs – As Happy As Possible

04 Jan, 2014

Album: As Happy As Possible (1993), Sub Pop

This simple video uncovers the exact roots of my own way of discovering and enjoying the music also – late night music shows, excited playing of the air drums and jumping around the room. I used to jot down the bands I discovered which I just „had to have“. If I heard Les Thugs back then, I would have noted them down with an exclamation mark and a double underline.

 

 

[-]  [+]  Lyrics:


Sometimes it’s hard to wear the mask
When painful names are coming back
Some memories hurt so bad
That we’d just like to hide and cry

And we’ve been told so many lies
We can’t believe in paradise
And because time is passing fast
We dry our eyes and try to be

As happy as you can be
When the life on spill
It’s the life for real

As happy as you can be
When you close the door
And still hear the screams

I guess that man is the only pest
And the white man did never rest
He made a world in his image
Selfish and cruel, hopeless and loud

We know that and we’re wandering
Looking for peace, begging for love
Touching somebody else’s skin
We don’t forget but try to be

As happy as you can be
When the sun is shining
On the battlefield

As happy as you can be
When you close the door
And still hear the screams.

I have always liked to discover new and also forgotten sounds and enthusiastically share it with anyone who was willing to listen to my passion, without any genre prejudices. Writing a blog about music is my way of paying back some of the energy I‘ve received from music over the years.
