  • Music:

Один кусок из "Эвиты"

Конечно, вырванное из контекста смотрится не так хорошо...
И все ж таки, ради одной только сцены гос.переворота готов смотреть по кругу :)
Что ни говори, здорово потрудились что Эндрю Ллойд Уэббер с Тимом Райсом, что Аллан Паркер.



PS Вообще, в качестве фильма, "Evita" смотрится отлично. Не зазорно для авторов "Jesus Christ Superstar" :)
Не знаю, как это выглядело на сцене.



The Lady's Got Potential

[Five members of the G.O.U., a right-wing grouping of
officers within the military government that seized power
in Argentina in 1943, including Colonel Juan PERON,
are seen moving slowly back and forth in rocking chairs.
During this sequence, every time the music stops, the
officers rise and one chair is removed. By the end of the
scene there is just on chair left, occupied by PERON.]



CHE:
In June of 43 there was a military coup
Behind it was a gang called the G.O.U.
Who did not feel the need to be elected

They had themselves a party at the point of a gun
They were slightly to the right of Attila the Hun
A bomb or two and very few objected

Just one shell and governments fall like flies
Ka-pow, Die
They stubble and fall
Bye bye
Backs to the wall
Aim high
We're having a ball
The tank and bullet ruled as democracy dies

The lady's got potential
She was setting her sights
Of making it in movies
With her name in lights
The greatest social climber
Since Cinderella

Okay she couldn't act
But she had the right friends
And we all know a career depends
On knowing the right fella to be stellar.

Just one shell and governments lose their nerve
Ka-pow, Die
They stubble and fall
Bye, bye
Backs to the wall
Aim high
We're having a ball
That's how we get the government we deserve

Now the man behind the president
Calling the shots
Involved so discreetly in a lot of their plots
was Colonel Juan Peron would-be dictator

He began in the army out in Italy so
Saw Mussolini's rise from the very front row
I reckon he'd do likewise sooner or later

Just one blast and the tear gas falls like rain
Ka-pow, Die
They haven't a chance
Bye bye
The terrorists advance
But one guy
Doesn't dirty his hands
Peron was biding time out in the slow lane.

Suddenly a earthquake hit the town of San Juan
Ka-pow, Die
They stubble and fall
Bye bye
Keep away from the wall
But one guy
Was having a ball
The tragedy a golden chance for Peron

He organized a concert with incredible flair
He named off all the victims
such a grand affair
Politicians, actors, stars of every flavor
It was January 22, 1944
A night to remember yeah that's for sure
For that's the night that Peron first met Eva
For that's the night that Peron first met Eva.
