“Annabel Lee” – Radio Futura

“Annabel Lee” – Radio Futura


Sin duda, mi canción favorita de esta magnífica banda: Radio Futura (Annabel Lee). Aquí les dejo la letra inspirada en el maravilloso poema de Edgar Allan Poe. Toda una obra maestra de nuestra cultura musical.



Hace muchos muchos años en un reino junto al mar
habitó una señorita cuyo nombre era Annabel Lee
y crecía aquella flor sin pensar en nada más
que en amar y ser amada, ser amada por mi.

Éramos sólo dos niños mas tan grande nuestro amor
que los ángeles del cielo nos cogieron envidia
pues no eran tan felices, ni siquiera la mitad
como todo el mundo sabe, en aquel reino junto al mar.

Por eso un viento partió de una oscura nube aquella noche
para helar el corazón de la hermosa Annabel Lee
luego vino a llevarsela su noble parentela
para enterrarla en un sepulcro en aquel reino junto al mar.

No luce la luna sin traermela en sueños
ni brilla una estrella sin que vea sus ojos
y así paso la noche acostado con ella
mi querida hermosa, mi vida, mi esposa.

Nuestro amor era más fuerte que el amor de los mayores
que saben más como dicen de las cosas de la vida
ni los ángeles del cielo ni los demonios del mar
separaran jamas mi alma del alma de Annabel Lee.

No luce la luna sin traermela en sueños
ni brilla una estrella sin que vea sus ojos
y así paso la noche acostado con ella
mi querida hermosa, mi vida, mi esposa.

En aquel sepulcro junto al mar
en su tumba junto al mar ruidoso.
Hace muchos muchos años en un reino junto al mar
habitó una señorita cuyo nombre era Annabel Lee
y crecía aquella flor sin pensar en nada más
que en amar y ser amada, ser amada por mi.

“Evening Star” – Edgar Allan Poe



Evening Star

‘Twas noontide of summer,
And mid-time of night;
And stars, in their orbits,
Shone pale, thro’ the light
Of the brighter, cold moon,
‘Mid planets her slaves,
Herself in the Heavens,
Her beam on the waves.
I gazed awhile
On her cold smile;
Too cold- too cold for me-
There pass’d, as a shroud,
A fleecy cloud,
And I turned away to thee,
Proud Evening Star,
In thy glory afar,
And dearer thy beam shall be;
For joy to my heart
Is the proud part
Thou bearest in Heaven at night,
And more I admire
Thy distant fire,
Than that colder, lowly light.

Edgar Allan Poe

“The Fall of the House of Usher” ~ Poe

“The Fall of the House of Usher” ~ Poe

“During the whole of a dull, dark, and soundless day in the autumn of the year, when the clouds hung oppressively low in the heavens, I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a singularly dreary tract of country; and at length found myself, as the shades of the evening drew on, within view of the melancholy House of Usher. I know not how it was–but, with the first glimpse of the building, a sense of insufferable gloom pervaded my spirit. I say insufferable; for the feeling was unrelieved by any of that half-pleasureable, because poetic, sentiment, with which the mind usually receives even the sternest natural images of the desolate or terrible. I looked upon the scene before me–upon the mere house, and the simple landscape features of the domain–upon the bleak walls–upon the vacant eye-like windows–upon a few rank sedges–and upon a few white trunks of decayed trees–with an utter depression of soul which I can compare to no earthly sensation more properly than to the after-dream of the reveller upon opium–the bitter lapse into everyday life–the hideous dropping off of the veil. There was an iciness, a sinking, a sickening of the heart–an unredeemed dreariness of thought which no goading of the imagination could torture into aught of the sublime.” ―

Edgar Allan Poe

“Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe

“Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (19 January 1809 – 7 October 1849 / Boston) was an American author, poet, editor, and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction

Annabel Lee is the last complete poem composed by this master of the most beautiful and dark romanticism.
The poem, written in 1849, was not published until shortly after the death of its author, the same year.


Definitely one of my favorite poems and here it’s reading by the wonderful actor Basil Rathbone.
