‘Zombie Love Song’, una balada de Your Favorite Martian [Frikada de la Semana]

Ve el video en el sitio original.

Si mi corazón aún latiese, latiría por ti
Sólo quiero robarte el corazón… y comerme tu cerebro

*¿Quién ha dicho que los zombis no pueden amar?* Pero si no hay amor más puro que el de ellos. Jamás te querrán por tu aspecto, sólo les atrae tu belleza interior. Y en concreto, la parte que viene siendo tu cerebro.

Hoy os traemos *’Zombie Love Song’*, del grupo Your Favorite Martian. Se trata de una preciosa balada romántica en la que un zombi le declara sus sentimientos a una chica que no termina de convencerse. Pero caerá, seguro, porque puede correr pero no esconderse. Os dejo la letra completa:

You don’t know me, baby, but I’ve seen you around.
It might be kind of crazy, but I’m just new in town.
And now I wonder what you’d think if I said, hey look
I’d like to get your number and a link to your Facebook.
Now if I tell you what a nice guy’s supposed to
Would that compel you not to scream when I approach you?
You’ll have to promise me you’ll take this news calmly,
But honestly, I’m sort of a zombie.

I knew you’d be surprised. You can bet that I
May not be alive, but I sure as hell ain’t dead inside.
What’s with the shotty? I ain’t wishing you harm.
You see, I’d try to hold your hand but I’m missing an arm.
Brains are all I’ve eaten all week it’s true,
But if my heart were still beating, it would beat for you.
So let me take you to Wendy’s. You deserve it.
Yeah, I’m a zombie, baby. Ain’t nobody perfect.

I’ll chase you through the yard and all through the house into the dark.
I wanna steal your heart and eat your brains.
I’ve never been so true, but if my heart were still beating, it would beat for you.
I wanna steal your heart and eat your brains.

Baby, sometimes I bite, and you can bet
That I’ve got an appetite for human flesh.
I’ll always be near though. You’ll have to accept that
When I nibble on your earlobe you might get infected.
Cause I fell in love with you and I’m
Undead but you make me feel alive.
And when I chase you through the graveyard
It feels like foreplay – feels like foreplay.

If I’m lying I’m dying, and I speak truly
When I say I love your mind. I’ll take brains over beauty.
We’ll be the undead Dagwood and Blondie
When I teach you how to zombie, teach you, teach you how to zombie.
And everybody will love you, and you can sing along
to this post-apocalyptic, postmortem love song.
So give me a chance,girl. You know I’ll be worth it.
Yeah, I’m a zombie, baby. Ain’t nobody perfect.

I’ll chase you through the yard and all through the house into the dark.
I wanna steal your heart and eat your brains.
I’ve never been so true, but if my heart were still beating, it would beat for you.
I wanna steal your heart and eat your brains.

Brains. Brains. Brains. Brains.
Brains. Brains.

I’ll chase you through the yard and all through the house into the dark.
I wanna steal your heart and eat your brains.
I’ve never been so true, but if my heart were still beating, it would beat for you.
I wanna steal your heart and eat your brains.

Vivo en las afueras de Málaga. El tiempo que me deja libre mi trabajo como analista acústico me gusta dedicarlo a la subcultura. No recuerdo cuando empecé a leer cómics pero por casa, en Jerez, siempre hubo tomos de Asterix y grapas de Mortadelo. Lo que realmente me abrió a la cultura alternativa fue una partida de Star Wars d6. Al poco estaba en la reunión inaugural del Club Dragom, en Jerez. Gracias a este grupo montamos varias jornadas y pude probar de todo: MERP, Rolemaster, Ragnarok, Runequest, AD&D, La Llamada de Cthulhu, Cyberpunk, Vampiro, Lobo, Mago, Fanhunter, Shadowrun, Mutantes en la sombra, Magic, Battletech, Mechwarrior, Warhammer… hasta ¡Niños!, El Juego de Rol de los Niños de Goma. En esa época me volví irremediablemente Tolkiendili, y adicto a la literatura épica y fantástica. Poco antes de mudarme a Málaga me presentaron a Pratchett, y comenzó la caza de ejemplares descatalogados en ferias de ocasión. Increíblemente, encontré a una malagueña que, sin ser rolera, comparte muchos de mis gustos y hace chistes sobre la Patrulla X. Aceptó casarse conmigo, aunque no me dejó cortar la tarta con Nársil. “Mola, pero es un muy grande. Quizás un sable de luz…”
