Licencia para matar (Música)

Las mejores melodías aparecidas en la decimosexta aventura oficial de James Bond y álbum que originaron

 Michael Kamen proporciona una banda sonora si no demasiado remarcable, sí muy eficiente. La canción principal cantada por Gladys Knight vuelve a los días en los que las películas Bond nunca utilizaban bandas de rock para la música. La canción parece poco inspirada al principio pero tras escucharla repetidamente mejora.

Mucho más impresionante es la canción que puede escucharse en los créditos finales - 'If You Asked Me To', cantada por Patti Labelle. Aunque terminar las películas Bond con una canción de amor es una práctica cuestionable, esta vez funciona muy bien. Irónicamente, la canción se convirtió en un éxito mucho mayor varios años más tarde cuando Celine Dion lanzó su versión.

 

Letras

Licence to Kill

Ooooh
Oh-hooo
I feel, I've got to hold on to your love
Oooh.

Hey baby, thought you were the one who tried to run away.
Ohh, baby, wasn't I the one who made you want to you?
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you.

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)
License to kill.

Hey baby, think you need a friend to stand here by your side?
Yes you do (your side)
Ohh, baby, now you can depend on me to make things right (things right)
Please don't bet that you'll ever escape me
Once I get my sights on you

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill (to kill)
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)

Say that somebody tries to make a move on you
In the blink of an eye, I will be there too
And they better know why I'm gonna make them 'em pay
Till their dying day
Till their dying day
Till their dying day

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm going straight for your heart, baby.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)

Got a license to kill (to kill)
And you know I'm heading straight for your heart.
(Got a license to kill)
Got a license to kill
Anyone who tries to tear us apart.
(Got a license to kill)
License to kill
Gotta hold onto your loving.
License to kill
Ooohooo!


If You Asked Me To

Used to be that I believed in something,
Used to be that I believed in love,
It's been a long time since I've had that feelin',
I could love someone,
I could trust someone.
I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again, darlin',
I said I'd never let nobody in,
If you asked me to I just might change my mind,
And let you in my life forever,
If you asked me to I just might give my heart,
And stay here in your arms forever.
If you asked me to,
If you asked me to,
So now ever since I've been around you,
Can't go back the way and on my own Can't help feelin',
Darlin', sinceI've found you,
That I've found my home,
That I'm finally home.
I said I'd never let nobody get to close to me, darlin',
I said I needed, needed to be free,
If you asked me to I just might change my mind,
And let you in my life forever,
If you asked me to I just might give my heart,
And stay here in your arms forever.
If you asked me to and I would give my world,
Little baby, I need you now,
Ask me to and I would do anything for you, baby,
For you, baby.
If you asked me to,
I'll put you in my life forever,
If you asked me to,
All you gotta do is ask me to,
If you want it I could give you my heart,
If you asked me to,
I'll give you anything that I say, baby,
If you asked me to,
I'll do anything that you want me to do, just ask me,
All you gotta do is ask me to,
If you asked me to,
I'll give my life,
All you gotta do is ask me to,
If you asked me to.
