Travis - Good Time Girls

Song

Good Time Girls è un b-side presente nel singolo U16 Girls del 1997 dei Travis.


"U16 Girls" is the second single released from Indie band Travis' debut album, Good Feeling. The single was released on 1 April 1997 in the United Kingdom.

Background

In an interview with NME, Fran Healy described the song as, "A tongue-in-cheek warning about the dangers of getting into a relationship with a girl who, despite looking much older, is actually under the legal age of consent." As the age of consent in Scotland is 16, Healy named the song "U16 Girls". The single's artwork depicts a surfboard which was designed by The Stone Roses guitarist John Squire.

Surfboard is decorated with lyrics from Beach Boys songs. The single charted at number forty on the UK Singles Chart.


Album

Good Feeling è l'album di debutto della band scozzese Travis. Uscì nel 1997.


Good Feeling is the debut studio album by Scottish alternative rock band Travis. The album was released on 26 September 1997, on Independiente Records.

Background and release

Once set up in London the band spent between nine months and a year recording new songs. The band played their first London show at the famous Dublin Castle in Camden. With around twenty good songs ready they then approached managers Colin Lester and Ian McAndrew of Wildlife Entertainment who then introduced the band to Andy MacDonald, owner of Go! Discs Records and founder of Independiente Records.

The band is signed to MacDonald personally, not to the label—if MacDonald ever leaves the Sony-financed label Independiente Records, the band goes with him (commonly referred to in the industry as a "golden handcuffs" clause).

Production

Produced by Steve Lillywhite of U2 fame, Travis' first studio album, 1997's Good Feeling, is a rockier, more upbeat record than the band's others to date. Recorded at the legendary Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, New York, the place where Travis favourite The Band recorded, the album contained singles such as "All I Want to Do Is Rock", "U16 Girls", the Beatle'esque "Tied to the 90's", "Happy" and "More Than Us".

Guest musicians include Page McConnell of Phish playing keyboards on the title track "Good Feeling". The album reached No. 9 on the British charts, but with little radio play, it slipped from the charts relatively quickly. Although it heralded Travis' arrival on the British music scene, received extremely positive reviews, and substantially broadened Travis' fan base, it sold just 40,000 copies.

Following the release, Travis toured extensively, their live performances further enhancing their reputation. This included support slots in the UK for Oasis, after Noel Gallagher became an outspoken fan.


Artist

Travis sono un gruppo rock scozzese di Glasgow formatosi nel 1995. Il nome deriva dal protagonista del film Paris, Texas di Wim Wenders. La band ha un sound molto influenzato dalla british invasion, deve molto alle sonorità derivate dai BeatlesĀ e dalla scena Britpop degli anni Novanta.

Hanno vinto due volte il premio per il British album of the year ai BRIT Awards e, insieme agli Oasis, sono ritenuti i precursori di band quali ColdplayKeane e Snow Patrol. Hanno pubblicato sette album, il primo dei quali è Good Feeling, del 1997. L'ultimo disco, Everything at Once, è del 2016.

Lyrics

It's another summer holiday
We go looking out for the good time girls
Good time girls
smarter than normal girls
Good time girls drinking and taking pills
Good time girls having a good time
Sit in the sun drinking expensive wine
Good time girls I want to be with you
Pick me up when I am feeling blue

It's another summer holiday
We go looking down for the good time girls
Good time girls
smarter than normal girls
Good time girls straight hair and hair that curls
Good time girls having a good time
Sit in the sun drinking electric wine
Good time girls will you come out with me
Making me happy bringing me cups of tea (ha!)
Oh yes

Good time girls having a good time
...

Testo

È un'altra vacanza estiva
Andiamo a cercare il divertimento, ragazze
Le ragazze dei bei momenti
sono più intelligenti delle ragazze normali
Belle ragazze che bevono e prendono pillole
Belle ragazze che si divertono
Sedersi al sole bevendo vino costoso
Belle ragazze voglio stare con voi
Prendimi quando mi sento triste

È un'altra vacanza estiva
Andiamo a cercare il divertimento, ragazze
Le ragazze dei bei momenti
sono più intelligenti delle ragazze normali
Belle ragazze capelli lisci e capelli ricci
Belle ragazze che si divertono
sedute al sole bevendo vino elettrico
Belle ragazze verrete fuori con me
Rendendomi felice portandomi tazze di tè (ah!)
Oh si

Belle ragazze che si divertono
...
