What bleeds (The dome)

What bleeds (the cupola) is a song of theArgentine rock band Soda Stereo and composed by its vocalista and guitarist Gustavo Cerati . It has the musical collaboration of Carlos Alomar in the leading guitar . It is one of the best known songs of the group and its original version appeared like 3º track of the album Doble vida , of 1988 . 1 A year later, appears its remixed version, like 4º and last track of the album Languis , with the name of “ What bleeds (the dome) (version remix) “. 2 This version returned to be included in the album Zone of promesas , of 1993 , like 10th and last track. 3

Live, this song was published in the album The last concert A of 1997, like 8º track. 4 In the Tour you’ll see me back 2007 was also interpreted, but it was not included in any album but is found as an extra DVD of the Tour # 2. 5

Letter

It is believed that in the song Cerati talks about the world of fame (“the dome”) and Politics , who knows the ladder to reach it (“the spiral staircase to the dome”) but what moves it inside That world is love . He also talks about things in the world of fame (“the dark glasses of a limousine”). 6 The second most widespread hypothesis among his followers is that he speaks of first love and virginity: the “dome” can easily be interpreted as “copulate”, “X-rays do not penetrate …”, “… There are So much bedding around us. ” This line of thought is not far from other Soda Stereo creations such as the counterface of this song to the male genre, You need vitamins , whose lyrics encourage a shy and depressed young man to try love; In the City of Fury, when he openly insinuates oral sex; Fugitives telling a story of infidelity; Or Among Cannibals , awakening one of the prohibited taboos of sexuality.

Music

The original version begins with a riff on electric guitar and Timpani , then all instrumentation (add drums , bass and keyboard ). After the end of the first part of the song and its first refrain, Carlos Alomar ‘s electric guitar is joined , with a great performance and a single ending). In this version the voice of Cerati has an effect similar to an echo . The song ends only with acoustic guitar and timpani.

The remixed version begins as the original ends, then sound effects sound until the drum begins to sound ; in this part of the riff of electric guitar it is replaced by electronic sounds. Finish the song just like it started.

The version of The last concert is quite similar to the original, next to the company of Andrea Alvarez in the percussion; The last extends a little when only the drums and the timbales, to which the keyboard and the electric guitar are added . Cerati presents it saying “with your permission”.

In the Tour you’ll see me back in 2007 the song was made with Carlos Alomar ( electric guitar ) and Andrea Álvarez ( percussion ) as guest musicians. This live version extends even more than the last concert and sounds with Caribbean style.

Curiously, in the live versions, Cerati instead of saying ” there is so much calm around us ” says ” there is so much bed around us “.
