The quest for the perfect song – 1 – Billie Holiday – Don’t Explain

Alla ricerca della canzone perfetta – primo tentativo

Billie Holiday – Don’t explain

una spiegazione della (semplice) e triste storia alla base della canzone in questo articolo in inglese sulla  NPR

Il testo (clamorosamente autoesplicativo: la grandezza è semplicità)

Hush now, don't explain
Just say you'll remain
I'm glad your back, don't explain

Quiet, don't explain
What is there to gain
Skip that lipstick
Don't explain

You know that I love you
And what love ain't does
All my thoughts of you
For I'm so completely yours

Cry to hear folks chatter
And I know you cheat
Right or wrong, don't matter
When you're with me, sweet

Hush now, don't explain
You're my joy and pain
My life's yours love
Don't explain
