Song for my death
To his young 21 years old, Charly García wrote this profound song in which, at some point, he challenges his own death: “It’s not because I’m afraid of you, I just want to fix myself.”
This is, perhaps, the song that best reflects the hippie ideal of escaping from the city to the countryside of that era: “Leave me alone, I want no more, there is no hope in the city. My beloved is far from here, in a hypernatural country.”

In this topic, Charly describes the perfection depression of “a blue Saturday and a Sunday without sorrows”, which ends with suicide. “Always the same, those who don’t they can more, they go.”

“ Close to the Revolution” was one of his themes that aged best: even today it is an unfailing one in his recitals, often as a theme of opening.
