Soundtrack for a messy life by Editorial Morsa

By Gabriel Bravo, Editorial Morsa. November 8, 2013


Morsa is the personal project of Gabriel Bravo, who offers intimate and delicate books where text and illustration share the limelight. Biography, story, novel, or humor are welcome at Morsa, a Spanish independent publisher that produces beautifully illustrated books for adults. At visualMANIAC, we've asked Gabriel to create a soundtrack that would speak for Morsa and he has prepared a extensive selection of fifteen tracks (thanks!) ranging from the great French pop diva Francoise Hardy to the mysterious and respected Scott Walker and Klaus Nomi and his unusual fusion of opera and rock/pop. An interesting playlist that could be a soundtrack for our messy lives

Nino Rota – The Pickup - The Godfather/Soundtrack Version. Openings to life always have its sinister side. Crossroads where you rarely know the right choice.

Scott Walker – Such A Small Love. The echoes of the past smell of whiskey on the rocks with a slice of lemon.

Hidrogenesse – Love Letters. Although it's hard to admit it, friends take you where you wanted to go. Love letters between Bern and Torremolinos with fake train tickets.

Marianne Faithfull – Plaisir D'amour. Lexham Gardens is a place where you can find a famous in every corner even though taxi drivers don't know where they are and make you cry.

Klaus Nomi – Valentine's Day. Those nights at the studio where the letters of the books dance and your partner masturbates indiscreetly.

Nina Ramsby – Fredmans Epistel 72 - Glimmande nymf. Love lives on an island in Sweden in the spring, where cakes are made of saffron and it smells like baked bread.

The The – Uncertain Smile. When you least expect it, Yolanda appears with her wide smile. It may be in the London underground or in a slum where you'd never enter.

Francoise Hardy – L'amore va - L'amour s'en va. A good solution to overcome a curse is to cut the umbilical cord.

Kim Carnes – Bette Davis Eyes. The voices of 'liquorese' women hide nothing, they are crystal clear and go straight to the heart. Hungover days under the vines telling great truths.

Feria – International. Love comes when it comes.

Miles Davis – Here Come De Honey Man. Tears don't disappear by sewing.

The Beach Boys – Hang On To Your Ego. On the heart street love declarations aren't welcome even though good music sounds.

Momus – The Charm Song. There are friends that one day decide to introduce you the man of your life.

Gene Pitney – Town Without Pity. Traveling in a large van has great advantages. You feel above the others, you can sleep anytime in the most strange places, get a quick or slow laid, or be lost on a highway on a rainy day. Yes, it has great advantages.

Tuxedomoon – The Waltz. I'll never forget Nono's bar.
