"Uptown Girl" - Billy Joel


O fato é, que apesar da correria do dia-a-dia as pequenas coisas sempre são as mais importantes, sejam pequenos sorrisos, gestos, palavras de carinho ou uma música. Viajando no mundo da leitura diversas músicas surgem, literalmente como uma trilha sonora, e uma delas embala o dia de hoje.

"Uptown Girl" foi lançada no álbum "An Innocent Man" (1983) de Billy Joel, sendo um dos singles mais importantes da década de 80. A música é uma gostosa mistura de batidas pop com rock e falsete e foi inspirada em Christie Brinkley (namorada de Joel na época). Em 2000 foi regravada pelo grupo Westlife, renovando o grande sucesso da canção.

"And when she knows what she wants from her time.  And when she wakes up and makes up her mind..."

Confira o clipe oficial e a versão de Westlife:


"Uptown Girl"

Uptown girl
She's been living in her uptown world
I bet she never had a backstreet guy
I bet her mama never told her why

I'm gonna try for an uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an uptown girl

You know I've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice

Uptown girl
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll win

And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine

She'll say I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love
With and uptown girl

She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am

Uptown girl
She's my uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
