Harlequin
Premiata Forneria Marconi Lyrics


Harlequin came at night
bowing to the ghosts of freedom square
stretching a silver rope
jester of frozen minds

And everyone of us
junkees and ghosts of freedom square
spoke through his waving hands
wept on his brother face
whispered through painted lips
rusty phrases forgotten lines

Thinking of arrows lost
shooting them past the pain

And everyone of us
losers and lost sad underdogs
just scraps of our younger minds
we danced all around the square
jumped to his see-through horn
screaming shouting forgotten lines

Shooting our rage again
like arrows far past the pain

And when the dogs fast arrived
baying across the town
we were there
all of us
a million harlequins

And the town
bloomed alive
like a beautiful night fair
and we were there
all of us
to be the rite of may....

En 1975, cuando todo el rock sinfónico estaba monopolizado por los ingleses, descubrí a PFM, para mi una auténtica revelación latina, que entró en mi vida como un soplo de aire fresco.

Luciano Catarin

Trovo veramente che sia uno dei più bei pezzi pop rock di tutti i tempi,quindi non solo italiano

Uno de los mejores temas del rock progresivo y tengo el disco en vinilo! Únicos! Me recuerda cuando lo escuche por primera vez y no lo podía creer. Gracias por compartirlo.

Grande album.Lanzetti una voce strepitosa...

This is totally awesome. I love the whole Chocolate Kings album. I saw PFM in Edinburgh, Scotland on Thurs 29 April 1976. The whole band made a huge impression on me. They were also the loudest band that I have ever heard. My hearing was affected for a few days afterwards. Even now, I would class Chocolate Kings as one of my "desert island discs".

Credo che Harlequin sia uno dei loro pezzi migliori in assoluto

Mark Yokum

The three big songs on this album - Paper Charms, Harlequin and Out of the Roundabout - are among my top 20 songs off all time.

Bravissimi e Bernardo Lanzetti effettivamente il migliore cantante che abbiano avuto!
Pezzo stratosferico.
Emerson e Palmer dicevano che quelli della PFM erano tra i primi 5 gruppi del mondo! Conosciamo la spocchia ,il nazionalismo,il colonialismo ecc...degli inglesi...quindi dovevano davvero essere uno dei 5 gruppi più bravi al mondo!

Anpi 1979

Cavolo, se pensi che nel 1974 avevano fatto un Tour negli U.S.A. con tanto di Album DAL VIVO🙂. E qualche anno dopo in England, dalla Regina Madre👍🏻🎸
