The Stranglers are an English rock music group, formed on September 11, 1974 in Guildford, Surrey. They began as a pub rock group, but later branched out to explore other styles of music. The Stranglers were, beginning in 1976, tangentially associated with punk rock, due in part to their opening for 'The Ramones' first British tour. The Stranglers were also associated with New Wave as well as gothic rock, but their idiosyncratic approach never fitted completely within any musical genre. They relied heavily on keys and synths when it was very unfashionable to do so. JJ Burnel (bass player/vocalist) said of the matter in an interview, "I thought of myself as part of it (Punk) at the time because we were inhabiting the same flora and fauna".

The Stranglers - Always The Sun

How many times have you woken up and prayed for the rain?
How many times have you seen the papers apportion the blame?
Who gets to say?
Who gets to work and who gets to play?
I was always told at school, everybody should get the same

How many times have you been told if you don't ask you don't get?
How many times have you wasted your money? Your Mother said you shouldn't bet
Who has the fun?
Is it always a man with a gun?
Someone must have told you if you work too hard you can sweat?

[Chorus]
There's always the sun
Mmmm
There's always the sun
Always, always, always the sun

How many times has the weatherman told you stories that made you laugh?
You know its not upto the politicians and leaders, when they do things by halves
Who gets the job?
Of pushing the knob
That's what responsibility you draw straws for if your mad enough

[Chorus] 3x

Wings, συγγνώμη δε σε πρόσεξα! Πού να σε δώ κρυμμένη πίσω από αυτές τις ντάνες τα χαρτιά. Μου φαίνεται πως θα μεταφράζεις "for ages"! :D

Μήνυμα ελήφθη (για πρόγραμμα)!

Λέω κι εγώ δεν υπήρχε η τραγουδάρα;!
Οπωσδήποτε παράθυρο
Να βλέπω έξω, να χαμογελώ
