BUENOS AIRES- En la Ciudad de la furia


En la Ciudad de La Furia por brkstereo
1 Me veras volar
  Por la ciudad de la furia
  Donde nadie sabe de mi
  Y yo soy parte de todos

2 Nada cambiara
  Con un aviso de curva
  En sus caras veo el temor
  Ya no hay fábulas
  En la ciudad de la furia

3 Me veras caer
  Como un ave de presa
  Me veras caer
  Sobre terrazas desiertas
  Te desnudará
  Por las calles azules
  Me refugiaré
  Antes que todos despierten

4 Me dejarás dormir al amanecer
  Entre tus piernas
  Entre tus piernas
  Sabrás ocultarme bien y desaparecer
  Entre la niebla
  Entre la niebla
  Un hombre alado extraña la tierra

5 Me veras volar
  Por la ciudad de la furia
  Donde nadie sabe de mi
  Y yo soy parte de todos

6 Con la luz del sol
  Se derriten mis alas
  Solo encuentro en la oscuridad
  Lo que me une con la ciudad de la furia

7 Me veras caer
  Como una flecha salvaje
  Me veras caer
  Entre vuelos fugaces
  Buenos Aires se ve tan susceptible
  Ese destino de furia es
  Lo que en sus caras persiste

8 Me dejaras dormir al amanecer
  Entre tus piernas
  Entre tus piernas
  Sabrás ocultarme bien y desaparecer
  Entre la niebla
  Entre la niebla
  Un hombre alado prefiere la noche
  Me veras volver
  Me veras volver
  A la ciudad de la furia

  1. One of my Soda Stereo´s song. It was made in a dark era of Gustavo Cerati. Probably, it was for an ex girlfriend. It´s in the second album: Doble vida (1998). In the video, you can see a gothic Buenos Aires and a dark man with wins. You can associate it with a dark angel. Lost.. trying to scape from something. There´s a lot to analize.
    You make me cry a little, Stella. I´ll do some more and i´ll share it.

    Se derriten mis alas

    Lo que me une con la ciudad de la furia
    This is a clear reference to Icarus, from greek mythology. The son of Daedalus, the architect who made Crete's labyrinth. Unable to escape the island Daedalus crafted two sets of wings, held together with string and wax, so they could fly away. On the journey Icarus flew too high and the sun melted the wax, sending him plummeting to his death.
    Flying too close to the sun caused Icarus to fall. Having read what Carolina wrote, it does sound like the man got too close to someone who hurt him. Another alternative is that his downfall was because of something else entirely, and that is what leads to him finding his "link to the city of fury" in the dark which he fell into. That link would be the woman.
    Most of Cerati's lyrics are purposefully vague, so it is hard to say anything about them that isn't pure speculation. That is something that I both like and dislike about them.

  4. 2."Nada cambiara con un aviso de curva
    En sus caras veo el temor
    Ya no hay fábulas
    En la ciudad de la furia"
    The city of fury was created under a context in which there were chaos in Buenos Aires and people were paranoid because a big inflation was coming. This is why cerati calls Buenos Aires as "The city of fury"
    When he says "nada cambiara con un aviso de curva" he refers to the politicians who said that they were going to change but no one believes them.
    "Ya no hay fábulas en la ciudad de la furia" this means that there were no more ways to lie to the people.

    Analysing the first line in isolation, 3 pictures come immediately to my mind; the first one is a kid happy because his mother won’t wake him up early. The second one is an adult happy for not having to wake up early. In the first option we can connect the phrase “me dejarás” to the mother, as is she the one that tells him to wake up and probably go to school. The second picture gives us the idea of an overbearing society, that will let the man sleep either because the society has let him go (unemployed/ homeless) or he has no obligations that particular morning (holiday).
    As the song goes on we noticed the sexual connotation. Now, when we want to connect this line with the previous one, we can appreciate an Edipo’s complex, the personification of the Buenos Aires into a slut or the use of love as an escape from the outside world. When pointing at the “Edipo’s complex” analysis, take into account that I am not talking about an specific sexual context, but the safeness of the womb, the warm, the dark, the isolation and the mother protection of the outside. We can think of a man that goes to refugee into his lover’s arms. The seek of care, love and safeness persists, while the target is not so different. The drive of a passionate personal, close meet is also a getaway of the noxious outside. But, finally when thinking of a homeless we get the image of the city as a prostitute because even though a sexual act is expected the feelings are absolutely opposite from the other two. The city will offer its streets, its lights, its dark places, etc as a prostitute will offer its body. But that body will never be able to give the safeness of a mother neither the love nor care of a lover. We can find a place to sleep, but it will hardly be a home.
    “Sabras ocultarme bien y desaparecer” In each of the three cases this mean, the protective function will be perform perfectly, though anyway it won’t last forever.
    The mist shows an obscure, fearful element. The object of safeness joins the harming outside. It becomes the obligations, the society, and the reality. The repetition enforces the image of a dense and oppressive environment.
    Finally, the last line expresses the passage from a calm secure state to one of consciousness where you can’t hide anymore, and want to go back. This vicious environment does not allow you to appreciate your wings, making you wander to feel the floor again. This can be represented by the lost of a kid’s innocence, the tiring routine that brings constant thoughts like “I don’t want to be here anymore” or the realization of being unnoticed.

    PD: These are my thoughts/feelings/ideas. They can be completely wrong... If anyone wants to criticized it (in order to improved it), please do it!

And that pressure of not know what it's going to happen to them laiter makes people feels angry and exposed to be on the defens. It's a really goods song. And like told my partners is a very dark side of soda estero that réflex the times they were living.

  7. 3 Me veras caer
    Como un ave de presa
    Me veras caer
    Sobre terrazas desiertas

    I’m not good at reading between lines and finding hiding meaning, so I looked up some information and I found that Gustavo Cerati said that was a song he had written when he was very young, at the age of seventeen, for a girl who had left him. A song “to make her cry, suffer and come back” (sic) http://www.opinaletras.com/significado/soda-stereo-en-la-ciudad-de-la-furia
    That made me think about these lines and I can imagine he is challenging her, telling her he would be back, he would be always around her and, just as a bird of prey, he would chase her and fall down over her empty heart.
    The music style can be described as an alternative/gothic rock sound with some new wave elements and shows the new sound that the band had adopted, changing from their previous albums. This song is a "harbinger" of the sound that the band was about to adopt as its own, especially alternative rock, the style in which this song was performed.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/En_la_Ciudad_de_la_Furia

    Description of the Goth culture:
    Some factors that are commonly observed are:
    • Its unique music, art and literature.
    • The use of extreme black clothing, light colored makeup, unusual hair styles, body piercing, bondage items, etc.
    • A fascination with medieval, Victorian and Edwardian history.
    • Wearing of symbols such as a Christian cross; an Egyptian ankh or "Eye of Ra," or "Eye of Horus;" a Wiccan pentacle, a Satanic inverted pentacle. etc. 3
    • Goths tend to be non-violent, pacifistic, passive, and tolerant.
    • Many Goths write about being depressed. Followers seem sullen and withdrawn, when in public. They are often much more "happy and carefree in the company of [other] Goths."
    Goth music often deals with thought-provoking topics, concentrating on societal evils, like racism, war, hatred of groups, etc. Their music tends to concentrate on the very "nasty, unhappy" topics that "North American culture" wants to "ignore and forget."
    http://www.religioustolerance.org/goth.htm
    GOTHIC CULTURE AND DARKNESS
    The gothic subculture revolved around a general emphasis on artefacts, appearances and music deemed suitably dark, sombre and, sometimes, macabre. Most obvious and important, was an overwhelming and consistent emphasis on the colour black, whether in terms of clothing, hair, lipstick, household decoration or even pet cats.

    By these lines I understand the feeling of what was living in 1988 in Buenos Aires where the inflaction raised to 27,6% and increased more during 1989 due to the payment of a external debt.
    Eventhough the new announcements given by politicians, people thought nothing could change..they were scared and didn't believe in those "Tales" (Fabulas) .

    Reading these lines, the first scene that appears in my mind is someone who is so frustrated by the society.
    If I focus on it more literally, the concept ‘Alado’ refers to someone who has wings so we tend to join this word with the word ‘freedom’. In my opinion, the author wanted to express the country situation.
    Under capitalist pressure, life is difficult and we all are beneath a ‘routine’ which is hard to escape from. Perhaps it refers to someone that is very fed up and tired of being shut in because this political and economic system cut its wings off.

  10. Me veras volar
    Por la ciudad de la furia
    Donde nadie sabe de mi
    Y yo soy parte de todos

    We’re first introduced to a darker and gloomy version of the city of Buenos Aires, probably the way it was perceived by the author of the song, and by many others back in the 80s. We can see a man walking in the streets, through the crowd, as any other typical citizen does every normal day... But you can see this man, although “invisible” to the rest (donde nadie me ve) and part of them as he suffers from the same problems of urban life (Y yo soy parte de todos), wishes to escape from this chaotic cage. Through the rest of the song, a “winged man” is mentiond a few times. So when it says “me verás volar”, I feel he’s this mythical Icarus, flying through the city even if noone else can see him. It is a “ciudad de la furia”, because he can see the pain and anger contained in people’s faces; Buenos Aires was going through hard times back then, economically and politically speaking, especially because of the hyperinflation and political turmoil. But even so, this winged man flies and walks around people who don’t see him; they’re likely too busy working or worrying about their own problems.

    Like Icarus, the greek hero, he seeks the warmth of the Sun; in this case, the winged man seeks refuge in the city itself (me dejarás dormir, hasta el amanecer, entre tus piernas), as a child longing for their mother’s warm embrace. However, just like with the greek myth, the “Sun” (the city of fury) melts the man’ wings. It seems to me like the description of a toxic relationship, which was probably a description of Buenos Aires in those years.

    Why are these lyrics, and even the rhythm of the music, considered gothic? This is because it talks about dark times, a harsh reality, and the perception of people living in the city. The lyrics describe desolate places, dark colours, a fragile city with angry people. And among them… a tragical figure, a winged man who looks at them from distance and wishes to escape. The music accompanies and contributes to the atmosphere that is represented both by the lyrics and the video itself.

    I believe it’s a beautiful yet sad song. It’s the reality of a city, presented in a more poetic way.

  11. Me veras volar
    Por la ciudad de la furia
    Donde nadie sabe de mi

    When I hear this lyrics I think the man in the video is impersonating something as a feeling (like sadness or worry) or a concept (like the cruel reality) more than an actual person. I feel like this "feeling" is floting trough the city of Buenos Aires, without the people knowing it will come in the most unexpected time. When it says "Sabrás ocultarme bien y desaparecer" I think it refers to the negation, like when we try to cover up our problems and we think they have dissepared but they are there, so this problems might be something that involves the whole society, but there are people who choose to ignore it so when it talks about "destiny" I feel like this destiny is the reality hitting them as it falls "como una flecha salvaje".

    Also, I been reading my mates comments and I agree with them too, I love that this song can have so many meanings depending on the point of view.

  12. " Me verás volar por la ciudad de la furia, donde nadie sabe de mi, y yo soy parte de todos " Analysing the lyrics, there is a man flying over the City of Buenos Aires, a conflicting city. I guess he is able to do it because he has wings, which means that he feels free to go anywhere. No one knows who he is; he is an anonymous person among a lot of people that walk in the streets.
    Analysing the video, there is a lonely old man looking through bars. In other scene, a young man is walking alone in the streets of Buenos Aires.

    I think the songwriter puts himself in the place of the fury that will fall like a wild arrow between fleeting flights over Buenos Aires, which is the city of fury. Since it seems so susceptible that it is the fate of the furies that remains in their faces. This song has a special meaning for "porteños", in which it describes a feeling that many share about their city that is aggressive, tumultuous and dangerous. Even today, that "fate of fury" seems to prevail.
    Personally, I love this song, its melodies, lyrics and the interpretation of his singer. On the one hand, listening to it makes me feel a certain melancholy and on the other hand, it makes me feel angry, for things that never change.

  15. 3- “Me veras caer

    Me veras caer
    Sobre terrazas desiertas

    Antes que todos despierten”

    I’ve always loved this song, even though I’m not a fan of Soda Stereo... So having to analyse this great lyrics is a little overwhelming for me.
    This part makes me think of a supernatural creature, like a fallen angel: “me veras caer como un ave de presa” could be about his wings in the middle of the night like a bird falling to take a hold of it’s victim. But instead of that he falls over “terrazas desiertas” so he is lonely, and has a conscience, more likely human... but it’s not human.
    “Te desnudará por las calles azules” I think it can be talking about seeing your true nature, in the night when you think that nobody’s seeing you, he knows. He can strip you naked to see your true colours, and maybe the streets are blue because of the moonlight.

    “me refugiaré antes que todos despierten” this part was the one that made me think, he can’t be outside in the daylight, he only has the night and must hide before the sunrise… or maybe he loses his freedom during the daylight.

    Lo que me une con la ciudad de la furia.
    I looked up for some infomation and i found that the main character is a kind of "superhero" that Cerati used to draw during his childhood and of course the dark period in the city.
    "Con la luz del sol
    Se derriten mis alas" I see a superhero which lives only in the darkness of the nigth. He can not be in the sunlight because his wings will be destroy (like in the myth of Icaro) and he wouldn't be able to wander over the city any longer.
    "Solo encuentro en la oscuridad
    Lo que me une con la ciudad de la furia." When he talks about "la ciudad de la furia" he is referring to the bad and dark period the city is going through at that time. So, due that the main character only goes out at night the only thing that connects him with the city is the darkness and loneliness.

  18. 7-... Buenos Aires se ve tan susceptible
    ese destino de furia es
    lo que en sus caras persiste.

    Although I´m not a big fan of Soda Stereo, I have to admit this is a great song. Not only for the music, but for the message it takes itself.
    The song was at first created as a response to Cerati´s ex girlfriend, nevertheless, Cerati rewrote it as an adult and the lyrics became more suggestive, leaving behind the heartbreak of youth to talk about the darker sides of urban society. By that time, Argentina was in a period of great turmoil.
    "Buenos Aires se ve tan susceptible"
    It talks about Buenos Aires that looks so fragile. The lyrics show Buenos Aires as being desolated with dark colours and angry people in it.
    "Ese destino de furia es
    lo que en sus caras persiste"
    It shows the lament of lonely men, who look the city around them from a distance and feel themselves trapped in it.
    From my point of view, I guess this song may show the feeling of many Argentinian. In my case as I am Uruguayan I can not talk for myself, but I do know some Argentinian who feel the city like that...sometimes aggresive and tumultuous.
    Beautiful and deep song, indeed.

  19. 'Me veras caer

    Como un ave de presa

    Me veras caer

    Sobre terrazas desiertas

    Te desnudaré

    Por las calles azules

    Me refugiaré

    Antes que todos despierten'

    I think that 'me veras caer' for itself holds a meaning, it implies that the city watches him or he feels like its like that. The city of fury is alive. Also, it seems like the city is the only one watching him and the fact that he talks to it feels like they share a secret, the fact that he is there. Maybe he doesn't want to show his true self to anyone, or his worries . His landing isn't soft and careful, it's violent and fast, he's looking for something but he finds nothing and no one there.

    "Te desnudaré" he will explore and find every secret of the city during the night. The city will invite him to do it.

    "Me refugiare antes que todos despierten" He will hide himself, maybe because he feels that people will hurt him, because he doesn't want to be judged or because he doesn't to feel like nobody sees him. He thinks that the ones who are going to awake are people that lives in the day.

    These are my thoughts about the songs

  21. En la ciudad de la furia, lyric from Soda Stereo, reminds me to Icaru’s myth. More precisely this verse:

    Me veras volar
    Por la ciudad de la furia
    Donde nadie sabe de mi
    Y yo soy parte de todos

    Icarus and his father attempt to escape from Crete by using wings that his father constructed from feathers and wax. Icarus' father warns his son not to fly near the sun because his wings could melt. Icarus ignored his father's instructions and he fell into the sea.
    I also relate this song to Wim Wender’s film: Wings of Desire (1987), where the main character is an angel who can see and listen to the thoughts of the human inhabitants and comfort those who are in distress. Even though the city is densely populated, many of the people are isolated or feeling apart from the ones they love.

    The chorus is about to the arrival of the day and the rest of the winged man,when the city of fury stops sleeping between his legs and conceals it in the fog.
    It is one of the darkest songs and intriguers of Cerati, in which a kind of mythical story unfolds: a young man (winged), alone with himself, flying at night over the buildings, falling "like a bird Of prey ", united" with the city of fury ", among many other solitaries like him, susceptible, with their faces marked by a" destiny of fury "

    By just looking at the video I feel there’s no good feelings in it. The video is dark blue, this colour is used in general to carry sadness.
    There is a man walking down the streets full of people crushing on him like he was invisible. Then the same man is looked in cage.
    As the video was released in a time when everything was chaos and a big inflation was getting closer I think, by this lyrics and the images in the video, the band tried to show the fear in the air. Nobody really knew what was going on with their futures. Maybe it was a way to open people’s eyes through music expressing and reflecting the feeling of being locked and fragile and the anger against the economial situation and politicians that were making the city falling down like a “wild arrow” fast and hurting.

  26. In this part of the song: "Me veras volar por la ciudad de la furia. Donde nadie sabe de mi y yo soy parte de todos" I think its refers to differents feelings like loneliness, helplessness, sadness, disapointment, fury,madness, upset that are sprinkled in the air between the society . Pehaphs by the video but I imagine people walking in the streets as if they were lost in their own problems, their own thoughts, and they couldn't see further them. They pass faster by the life without seeing anything surround them, feeling themself invisible.

    Well I'm not good with this kind of tasks because in cases like this,there isn't an only or correct interpretetation so I will just give my point of view mixed with some information I found about the song in Wikipedia.
    In my opinion this part of the song talks about someone Who tries to do something to stand out from the crowd. This song was released at a time where nothing was easy in Buenos Aires due to The hyperinflation that was lived.In the video we can see a man who tries so hard to "scape" from his situation but he couldn't do it and now is frustrated that's why this song sounds a bit depressing, Cerati said he made this melody when he was 13 or 14 years old and it probably was for an ex-girlfriend.

    This song was created for a girl, who broke Cerati's heart and he wanted to get back back with that girl, so he did this track, mixing the context of Buenos Aires hyperinflation in 1988 with chaos,paranoia,poverty and this kind of angel that cerati used to draw when he was young, like the mhytical Icaro or hero among the city. There are a lot of feelings mixed up in this song

    Y yo soy parte de todos....


    But in this part it's when he is not flying so he is not free because he is feet on the ground so he is the city and.for him is such a "cage".
    Also when he is walking around the city ,where there are lot of people he is "invisible" for the rest people, nobody notice him except that he amd the other people are an important "piece"or "number" to the work because he is living in a capitalist society where we are "slaves salaried" and we are divided in social levels. For that reason he have to survive to the most fierce fight where he is . this fierce are the economical problems and capitalisim. He knows perfectly of that. He don't have a bandage on his eyes.

  30. Me dejarás dormir al amanecer
    Entre tus piernas
    Entre tus piernas
    Sabrás ocultarme bien y desaparecer
    Entre la niebla
    Entre la niebla
    Un hombre alado extraña la tierra
    -Well the first that came to my mind always that i hear this classic song of soda stereo is a history of two lovers that don't want to separate the next morning to get on with their lives after being in the idyllic world of a couple in their privacy, when it says me dejas dormir al amanecer entre tus piernas i can picture the image of a lover holding their significant other in a hug with all his body, because their arms are not enough to contain and protect his lover about the reality and the monotony of life, and when it says sabrás ocultarme bien y desaparecer entre la niebla for me it's like a strong feeling of saving each other of the cruel world out there. this song leaves me with a feeling of protection of the person who shares your life with you. Also in another way this song makes me think about a country that was reconstructing his faith in humanity and leaving the sorrow of a very dark time that were the 70´s with the military government. this fragment of sabrás ocultarme bien y desaparecer makes me think of someone who had a really hard time in that times and want to forget it all and be a different person acknowledge everything in the arms of someone who loves him.

  32. "Me verás volar
    por la ciudad de la furia
    Donde nadie sabe de mi
    y yo soy parte de todos"

    I picked the first paragraph because I think that it has a strong meaning and contextualizes, in some way, the rest of the song. I tried to avoid reading the comments of my classmates, because I would perhaps feel some kind of limit. I hope I wasn't repeating what they "said".

    We speak of a chaotic Buenos Aires, crossed by a conflictive situation in economic, social and political terms.
    This social problem affects all those who lives in this society, in this "Ciudad de la Furia"
    All are worried, paranoid and angry with all this overwhelming situation. As a result, everyone is indifferent to the other, which is why the protagonist of the song feels invisible in a noisy and crowded city
    In the video we see him locked up in a gray cold prison or walking on crowded streets but feeling alone and misunderstood by a society where we are all part of the same system but we are disconnected, nobody cares about the other, nobody sees the other. We don't really do it.
    The song refers to Buenos Aires in the 90's but today it's still happening. And we, as future teachers, must act as mediators. Exist interstices, that is to say, blanks in which we must work because we are creators of subjectivities in the students, and we must make that gap, that separates us as a society, ever smaller because in that gap selfishness and indifference reigns.

  33. 1 Me veras volar
    Por la ciudad de la furia
    Donde nadie sabe de mi
    Y yo soy parte de todos

    I must confess that this is the first time that I listen to Soda Stereo. I know that my interpretation is probably wrong (I Made a mistake: I read the comments!).
    When I saw the vídeo I imagined the last military dictatorship in Argentine. "Donde nadie sabe de mi" 30000 argentine were "disappeared" between 1976 and 1986. "Y yo soy parte de todos" today everybody knows What happend 41 years ago and everybody have memory so it's part of us.

  34. 7-Buenos Aires se ve tan susceptible
    ese destino de furia es
    lo que en sus caras persiste.

    Analyzing these lines, the first thing that comes to my mind is the city of Buenos Aires in a terrible situation, where the problem comes to all people who can not find a solution

  35. ...Donde nadie sabe de mi y yo soy parte de todos...
    To be along among so many people is one of the problems in big cities; to be surrounded by so many people that you see every day but you don´t even know who they are..

  36. I think that this song refers to an specific moment in Buenos Aires when the economy of the country was in a bad situation and people were desperate and annoyed because many people lost a lot of things like their houses or other goods they had and it was really hard to live in that conditions.

  37. 5-Me veras volar
    Por la ciudad de la furia
    Donde nadie sabe de mi
    Y yo soy parte de todos
    I think here the song talks about the feeling of being alone or feeling invisible even though you are sorrounded by people. I think it also conect with the idea of people only minding their own busnies without worring about what's going on with the person next to them, not only refering to a significant other, family member or a friend but to anyone like a neigbour, a coworker or any citizen.

  38. Me dejaras dormir al amanecer
    Entre tus piernas
    Entre tus piernas
    Sabrás ocultarme bien y desaparecer
    Entre la niebla
    Entre la niebla
    Un hombre alado prefiere la noche
    Me veras volver
    Me veras volver
    A la ciudad de la furia
    When it says, “un hombre alado prefiere la noche”, It makes reference to a man, with wings, who flies over Buenos aires at that time because I believe that that’s the only time he can do it.
    When the day arrives, he has to hide from the sun light, and that’s when the myth about Icarus comes into my mind. That fear, in this case of melting his wings can also be compared to the fear that people felt during the situation that Buenos Aires was facing at that time. That’s why he preferred hiding (sabras ocultarme bien y desaparecer, entre la niebla), because he didn’t want to see the reality he had to face during the day.
    The city was living in terms of chaos, inflation and poverty.

  40. Con la luz del sol
    Se derriten mis alas
    Solo encuentro en la oscuridad
    lo que me une con la ciudad de la furia: I think that the author belongs to the city of furious noisy, perhaps because of the presence of light in some moments feels discouraged and does not manage to be well, with which if you would like to feel patient and calm as usual pericbe Baires furious.
    Unfortunately, the singer called GUSTAVO CERATI died In a dark with no apparent light of life,With the light of his stage at the chile show.
