ZERO DE CONDUITE: TALK IS CHEAP (2)

blondie___parallel_lines.jpg

Secrets and sharing soda, that's how our time began
Love is a story told to a friend, it's second hand
But I'll listen to his questions, I'll give my answers when they're found
He says she keeps him guessing, but I know she keeps him down
She speaks in sorry sentences, miraculous repentances
I don't believe her
Tomorrow he will come to me and speak his sorrow endlessly
And ask me why
Why can't I leave her?
He comes for conversation, I comfort him sometimes
Comfort and consultation, he knows that's what he'll find

Joni Mitchell, Conversation

Met bovenstaande regels begon gisteravond Zéro de conduite. Het thema was echter niet liefde of ontrouw maar gepraat. We beluisterden allerlei songs over allerlei vormen van praten. De titel, ontleend aan Van Morrisons barse blues ‘Talk Is Cheap’, dekt natuurlijk niet de hele lading. Sommige woorden en zinnen en soms zelfs hele monologen en conversaties blijven ook uitgesproken van goud of ander edel metaal. (Van Morrison zingt letterlijk “talk is cheap almost all the time”).
De afsluiter van het programma was geheel toevallig Frankie Lee Sims’ ‘I done talked and I done talked’. Ik weet niet meer hoe het kwam maar toen ik die song nog eens hoorde bedacht ik dat de duivel niet alleen tot de mooiste muziek inspireert maar ook het laatste woord heeft. Is dat echter de les die ik gisteravond heb geleerd? Zeker niet. Wat ik opnieuw besefte was hoe mooi meisjes kunnen praten, ook al klinkt het in de ogen van iemand als Van Morrison “blah, blah, blah”. Nee hoor, daarin geef ik hem ongelijk. Ik hoor net als Elvis Costello en Dave Edmunds meisjes heel graag praten. En volgende maand wil ik opnieuw zo’n heftige en hartige Zéro maken.

Dit is de volledige playlist gevolgd door titels van songs die ik helaas niet de ether in heb kunnen sturen.
