The Doobie Brothers: What a fool believes

The Doobie Brothers formaron en los 70 una banda de rock que obtuvieron gran éxito comercial, sobre todo con la incorporación de Michael McDonald, que dió al pop-rock inicial de la banda, un estilo más elegante influenciado por el soul. Su fantástica voz recubierta de un alma soul, ofrecieron al grupo un arco iris musical más amplio; el sonido blue-eyed soul les venía como anillo al dedo. Surgieron canciones tan maravillosas como este "What a fool believes", compuesta por Michael Mcdonald y Kenny Loggins, y con la que obtuvieron varios Grammys. Estaba incluida en el álbum 'Minute by minute' de 1978, y permaneció durante varias semanas en lo más alto de las listas de ventas gracias a este sencillo que ya es todo un clásico.

Gran armonía vocal con un falsete escalofriante, una letra que te engancha, y una melodía envolvente que te atrapa desde el primer momento. Uno de esos momentos en que la música no tiene color y lo blanco se solapa con lo negro, universalizando uno de los lenguajes más bellos.

Letra
He came from somewhere back in her long ago
The sentimental fool dont see
Tryin hard to recreate
What had yet to be created once in her life

She musters a smile
For his nostalgic tale
Never coming near what he wanted to say
Only to realize
It never really was

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
Hes watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
And nothing at all keeps sending him...

Somewhere back in her long ago
Where he can still believe theres a place in her life
Someday, somewhere, she will return

She had a place in his life
He never made her think twice
As he rises to her apology
Anybody else would surely know
Hes watching her go

But what a fool believes he sees
No wise man has the power to reason away
What seems to be
Is always better than nothing
Theres nothing at all
But what a fool believes he sees...
