Ann Wilson - 'Barracuda' (Live at Wacken Open Air 2022)

So this ain't the end,
I saw you again today
I had to turn my heart away
Smile like the sun,
κisses for everyone
And tales,
ιt never fails!

You lying so low
ιnto the weeds
I bet you gonna ambush me
You'd have me down,
δown, down, down on my knees
Now won't you, Barracuda?

Back over time,
ςe were all trying for free
You met the porpoise and me
No right, no wrong,
υou're selling a song, a name
Whisper game

And if the real thing don't do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn to the wick
Ooh, Barracuda

"Sell me sell you" the porpoise said
Dive down deep to save my head
I think that you got the blues, too

All that night and all the next
Swam without looking back
Made for the western pools, silly, silly fools!

If the real thing don't do the trick, no
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn it to the wick
Oh, Bara-Barracuda

Τον Μάιο του 1977 οι Heart κυκλοφορούσαν τον τρίτο δίσκο τους υπό τον τίτλο "Little Queen". Εναρκτήριο τραγούδι και πρώτο single ήταν το "Barracuda" που αποτέλεσε μία από τις μεγαλύτερες επιτυχίες της μπάντας των αδερφών (Ann και Nancy) Wilson.

Προ τριετίας η Nancy Wilson αποκάλυψε, σε συνέντευξή της (Gear Factor), ότι το βασικό ριφ του τραγουδιού ήταν εμπνευσμένο από εκείνο των Nazareth στην διασκευή τους στο "This Flight Tonight" της Joni Mitchell:

«We've been opening for a band called Nazareth in Europe and also for Queen. And Nazareth had a hit with a Joni Mitchell song that they covered [in 1973] called 'This Flight Tonight' that had kind of that riff. So we kind of borrowed that. And we made it into 'Barracuda'.

And we saw the guys from Nazareth later and they were pissed. 'You took our riff!. But that's kind of what everybody - you borrow from what you love and then you make it your own. It's one of those sounds too, it's one of those guitar tones that I'm still trying to figure out what we did. [Laughs] It's hard to re-create.

Η (τραγουδίστρια των Heart) Ann Wilson εμφανίσθηκε στο φετινό μουσικό φεστιβάλ Wacken Open Air. Μεταξύ των τραγουδιών που απέδωσε live ήταν και το "Barracuda". Δικό σας...
