ROCK STORIES – “A little is enough” di Pete Townshend

pete townshend A Little Is Enough

Il matrimonio di Pete Townshend con la moglie Karen era in crisi, il chitarrista dei The Who si incontrò Adi Irani, il segretario di Meher Baba, che nel 1967 aveva fortemente influito sulla nascita di Tommy. Pete confessò a Irani: “Adi, mia moglie non mi ama più. Che dovrei fare?
Non ti ama più per niente?”, rispose Adi.
Ha detto che mi ama ancora un poco, ma solo un poco”, risposte Pete.
Ah! Un poco. Bene. L’amore è universale. Senza limiti. Per cui, anche un poco è sufficiente.

A little is enough” era la nona traccia di Empty Glass, in classifica si fermò al numero 72, ma Townshend la ritiene la più bella canzone d’amore da lui composta. Fa anche riferimento a Rémy Martin nei testi “Sono come un intenditore di champagne cognac, il profumo quasi batte il gusto.”

Testo:

They say that love often passes in a second
And you can never catch it up
So I’m hanging on to you as though eternity beckon
But it’s clear that the match is rough
Common sense’s tell me not to try’n continue
But I’m after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open
My spirit ain’t broken
Your love is so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
Just a little is enough

I’m like a connoisseur of champagne cognac
The perfume nearly beats the taste
I eat an oyster and I feel the contact
But more than one would be a waste
Some people want an endless line that’s true
But all I have to have’s a little time with you
A smile sets me reeling
A kiss feel like stealing
Your love is like heroin
This addict is mellowing
I can’t pretend that I’m tough
Just a little is enough

Just like a sailor heading into the seas
There’s a gale blowing in my face
The high winds scare me but I need the breeze
And I can’t head for any other place
Life would seem so easy on the other track
But even a hurricane won’t turn me back
You might be an island
On the distant horizon
But the little I see
Looks like heaven to me
I don’t care if the ocean gets rough
Just a little is enough

Common sense’s tell me not to try’n continue
But I’m after a piece of that diamond in you
So keep an eye open
My spirit ain’t broken
Your love is so incredible
Your body so edible
You give me an overdose of love
Just a little is enough
