  • les revenants albümünde ilk dikkat çeken parça. mogwai' nin tarzınının çok dışında, değişik olmuş. sadece iki defa dinlediğim için pek bir şey söyleyemedim de. ilginç ama.

    sözleri şu şekilde.

    what are they doing in heaven today,
    where sin and sorrow are all done away?
    peace abounds like a river, they say.
    what are they doing there now?

    ı'm thinking of friends whom ı used to know,
    who lived and suffered in this world below
    but they've gone off to heaven, but ı want to know
    what are they doing there now?

    oh, what are they doing in heaven today,
    where sin and sorrow are all done away?
    peace abounds like a river, they say.
    but what are they doing there now?

    there's some whose hearts were burdened with care
    they paid for their moment to fighting and tears
    but they clung to the cross with trembling and fear
    but what are they doing there now?

    what are they doing in heaven today,
    where sin and sorrow are all done away?
    peace abounds like a river, they say.
    what are they doing there now?

    and there's some whose bodies were full of disease
    physicians and doctors couldn't give them much ease
    but they suffered 'til death brought a final release
    but what are they doing there now?

    what are they doing in heaven today,
    where sin and sorrow are all done away?
    peace abounds like a river, they say.
    what are they doing there now?

    there's some who were poor and often despised
    they looked up to heaven with tear-blinded eyes
    while people were heedless and deaf to their cries
    but what are they doing there now?

    what are they doing in heaven today,
    where sin and sorrow are all done away?
    peace abounds like a river, they say.
    what are they doing there now?
  • bu şarkı aslında çoktan unutulmuş orijinal bir gospelci abimiz washington phillips'in bir şarkısıdır. pek severim kendisini, birkaç yıl önce sık dinlerdim, unutuvermişim ben de başkalarının da onu unuttuğu gibi. şimdi les revenants'ın the returned olarak gösterime girmesi hasebiyle aklıma mogwai'ın hazırladığı ama çıktığında dinlemediğim soundtrack'i düşüverdi. albümün listesinde bu şarkıyı görünce de çok şaşırdım ve çok sevindim bana phillips'i hatırlattıkları için.
    phillips'ten dinleyelim: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=or1oz35na2u
