"big wheel" w tekście piosenki

Ultimo - Planets

I have always written perhaps to feel myself less alone
In those evenings where heaven takes you by the hand
And you stand up there on the big wheel
Where the world is just a point to leave behind

Madredeus - The Shepherd

Ow, Nobody comes back
When that has left
Nobody releases the big wheel
Nobody knows where walked

Chico Buarque - The wheel of life

and takes the nostalgia far away

The world turns, big wheel
The windmill turns, the trompo turns

Tina Turner - Proud Mary

The people on the river are happy to give.

Big wheel keep on turning.
Proud Mary keep on burning.

Pocahontas (OST) - Colors of the Wind

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers as well
The heron and the otter are my friends
We are all part of this big wheel
We belong, everyone, to this great whole

Splean - New People

People think in Leningrad and Rome,
That death is something, that happens to others,
That life will continue turning the big wheel
Can you hear, in the kitchen the hands on the clock froze

Efecto Pasillo - Pan y mantequilla

Four little angels go along with me
Four secrets, thousands of stories
Dreams rotating in a big wheel
From North to South and from East to West

Pink Floyd - Pigs (Three Different Ones)

Big man, pig man, ha ha,
charade you are
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha,
charade you are

Roger Waters - Porcs (de trois différentes sortes)

Homme de pouvoir1, homme porc2
Ha, ha, comme vous êtes méprisable3
Vous, le gros bonnet4, vous avez de grands talons5.
Ha, ha, comme vous êtes méprisable

  • 1. Traduire "big man" par "grand homme" n'irait pas, car il ne s'agit pas d'un homme grand par ses qualités, mais d'un homme grand par sa position sociale.
  • 2. Le mot "cochon" est trop mignon, le mot "porc" convient mieux.
  • 3. Le mot "charade" en anglais n'a pas la même signification qu'en français. Il peut s'agir d'un jeu particulier ou bien "a blatant pretense or deception" selon le dictionnaire Merriam Webster. Ce n'est pas facile à traduire en français. Des mots d'argot viennent naturellement, mais il vaut mieux rester correct puisque charade n'est pas péjoratif en anglais.Au début je pensais à "outrecuidant", mais c'est un mot rare, moins compréhensible que "méprisable" que je choisis finalement.
  • 4. "Big wheel" ne doit pas être traduit par "grande roue", car il s'agit d'une expression signifiant un homme d'affaires ou un homme politique.
  • 5. Là, je suppose que le sens est que l'homme de pouvoir serait grand par l'artifice de des grands talons de ses bottes, mais je ne suis pas certain de cette hypothèse.

Creedence Clearwater Revival - Proud Mary

You don't have to worry 'cause you have no money
People on the river are happy to give.
Big wheel keep on turnin',
Proud Mary keep on burnin'.

Logic - Homicide

I don't want to fuckin' listen to you spit your raps someone else wrote
Used to get beat up by the big kids
Used to let the big kids steal my big wheel
And I wouldn't do shit but just sit still

Madredeus - Oh Shepherd

Ah nobody's returning
to what has pushed along
no one stops the big wheel turning
no one's knowing where he's gone

Joselito - Bell ringer

It was a crown of glory.
all that commotion of the worries for love,
when the rolling of the big wheel,
covered with a veil all that sky of colors

Bushido - Ching Ching

No work, so gambling hall, you are forced to play
And this street remains my second roof
We are criminal, you big wheel, so here's a full circle, you idiot

Françoise Hardy - surprise me benoît

Surprise me benoît
Walk on your hands
Swallow pine cones

Dire Straits - Tunnel of love

but something must have made me stay

And the big wheel keep on turning
neon burning up above

Ike & Tina Turner - Proud Mary

Big wheel keep on turning
Proud Mary keep on burning

Hadestown (Musical) - Way Down Hadestown

Where the little wheel squeals and the big wheel groans

Madredeus - The Shepheard

Oh, no one comes back
To what has left
Nobody leaves the big wheel

The Who - Eminence Front

The drinks flow
People forget
That big wheel spins, the hair thins
People forget
