Day 276 – Manu Chao

This is off an album that I recovered from an old hard-drive today. I wasn’t familiar with this song, but loved the tune and the rhythm. I looked up the lyrics afterward and it’s a song called Denia or “Life” I’ve included the translation below.


Poor Algeria
Life beats in the rhythm of your dismay
Life itself is a lie
My heart aches to watch you
Poor Algeria
Life through your eyes
Life as lie
Life swarming with police
Life soaked with
mothers’ tears
Life racked with madness
Poor Algeria

Who really cares
in America about
what’s happening in Algeria?
Who really knows??
