Primeiras Palavras 

Sempre me interessei muito pela primeira linha da primeira canção do primeiro álbum. Sempre procurei quem aí estava, nas primeiras palavras, as escolhidas (em consciência ou não) para apresentar, representar ou camuflar aqueles artistas e o sítio para onde nos queriam levar. Fosse qual fosse o caso, parecia-me ter interesse.

Nesta perspectiva, obviamente bastante redutora, algumas destas recolhas são mais significativas, outras apenas curiosas (senão cómicas), e nada dizem do que estes artistas se tornaram mais tarde aos meus olhos ou aos do mundo. Faltam nesta lista nomes de que não me lembro agora, e ignorei deliberadamente EP's, singles, compilações e coisas do género, o que talvez não tenha sido muito inteligente da minha parte. Mas eu gosto muito de álbuns. E da primeira linha da primeira canção do primeiro álbum.

Joy Division - "I’ve been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand"

Zeca Afonso - "Águas passadas do rio meu sono vazio não vão acordar"
(não consegui encontrar a letra do 'Fado das Águias', a composição que iniciou a primeira gravação "longa". De qualquer modo, foi um disco mal gravado, cheio de imperfeições de acústica, que não teve grande saída, e prefiro pensar que o Zeca Afonso também o encarava como uma obra de amador ;-) )
