The Dixie Chicks

Jeg har nettopp sett en dokumentar om The Dixie Chicks på SVT og nå har jeg ett nytt favorittband. Dokumentaren heter: "Dixie Chicks - Shut Up and Sing". For noen tøffe jenter! Jeg har grått og snufset i en time. Dette er jo gammelt nytt for mange men jeg har rett og slett ikke fått med meg dette før...

I 2003 før invasjonen av Irak sa Natalie Maine;"We don't want this war, this violence; and, we're ashamed the President of the United States is from Texas".

For ett oppstyr! Bandet mistet nesten 50% av sin publikk og det ble høringer og rettsak, mordhot og bare bare masse rot. Radio sluttet å spille musikken dems.

Men de holdt sammen og har fått en ny publik og solgt 38 millioner plater frem till idag. Snart blir det noen flere. Jeg må få med meg noen av albumen de har gitt ut.

Denne sangen er bare helt fantastisk! Her er klipp fra filmen. Natalie har fått dødshot der det står at hun skal skytes den 6 juni på konserten i Dallas. Jeg hylgriner når jeg hører denne sangen...



Not Ready To Make Nice lyrics

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’
It’s a sad sad story when a mother will teach her
Daughter that she ought to hate a perfect stranger
And how in the world can the words that I said
Send somebody so over the edge
That they’d write me a letter
Sayin’ that I better shut up and sing
Or my life will be over

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting
