Songs that remind me of Sherlock (but are totally unrelated)

Some friends of mine make beautiful music. Their latest album has a couple of songs that made me think of Sherlock.One of them could relate to Sherlock and Euros (or to Sherlock and John when Sherlock is high). The lyrics are in french but I asked for their permission and translated it.

Here is a link to their album. Just click on the song entitled:"Là-haut" (song number 10). And here are the lyrics in english. Enjoy! 
La vue qui donne le vertige
De mon toit
Où je contemple
Ce que je n’ai vu depuis longtemps…
Le cœur comme le ciel qui s’étend
Tout béant
Et je crierai : « Au secours! »
Dès que cessera le vent…
Qui sera celui qui me fera descendre?
Je me sens seul
Si bien, mais seul
Regarde bien cet homme là-haut
Qui se terre dans les airs
The sight that gives me vertigo
From my roof
Where I watch
What I have not seen in a very long time
My heart like the sky spreading
And I will shout : « Help! »
As soon as the wind dies out
Who will be the one to help me down?
I feel alone
Up there
So well but alone
Up there
Watch closely that man up there
Who hides in the air

Re: Songs that remind me of Sherlock (but are totally unrelated)

I like this idea for a thread. I can't remember for sure if we already have one or not, but I still like this idea. I might have to think about songs that I've heard that could conjure up images from Sherlock.

Anyway, I can see how the lyrics of that song would make you think of Sherlock. The first verse kind of makes me think of The Reichenbach Fall.

Clueing for looks.

Re: Songs that remind me of Sherlock (but are totally unrelated)

This is actually my favorite piece from this same album. To me, some passages evoke those two years where John tought Sherlock was dead and others could be Sherlock’s and John’s future after season 4 and their knack at beeting the odds (« killing death »!)
It was a challenge to translate but I hope you like it!
Here’s the link to the actual song . Enjoy!

I hear
I hear the countdown
Of time
Struggling to chase that joy away
Of the good old days
When everything was easy and paved in advance
But together, we will only be stronger
Killing death
Killing death
Waiting for my turn to come
Struggling to chase away sorrow
Of those days when everything seems useless and lost in advance
But together, I know we’ll be strong enough
Killing death
Killing death
No… No… No… No…
My own mind, my tormenter
Throwing me touhghts , hurling knives
Spinning on a turntable, I am
Hanging on to my memories
Spinning, over and over
Dizzying my life
Between past and future
Egregores sucking
Spiraling me down
Despite my struggling
Motion amplifying
Life is beauty, naturally
Life can hurt crosscurrent
I’ll take my time
Before time takes me
Tired of calculated risks
I’m taking one
Time to chase away
Past sorrows
Cultivating silence
No end, no beginning
As a man from nowhere
I’ll be this flaming arrow
Striking society’s wall
If I can kill time
I’ll become immortal
Walking the present’s hall
Reaching another level
Understanding my moves, my actions
Accepting change
I say YES to life
Initiating motion
Light is eternal
I’m a being wrought of light

J'entends le compte à rebours
Du temps
Qui peine à chasser la joie...
Des vieux jours, alors que tout était facile et tracé d’avance
Mais ensemble, on en sera que plus forts
Pour tuer la mort
Pour tuer la mort
J’attends qu’arrive mon tour
Le temps
Qui peine à chasser la peine...
De ces jours, alors que tout semble vain et perdu d’avance
Mais ensemble, je sais que nous serons assez forts
Assez forts, assez forts
Pour tuer la mort
Pour tuer la mort
Non... Non... Non... Non…
Mon esprit, mon propre bourreau
Me lance mes pensées tels des couteaux
Sur une table tournante, je suis
Accroché à mes souvenirs nostalgiques
Je tourne et tourne encore
À m’en étourdir la vie
Entre le passé et l’avenir
Mes égrégores m’aspirent
En spirale vers le bas
J’ai beau me débattre
J’amplifie le mouvement
La vie est belle naturellement
La vie fait mal à contre-courant
J’prendrai le temps
Avant que le temps me prenne
J’tanné de calculer les risques
J’ai décidé d’en prendre un
C’est le temps de chasser
Les peines passées
D’faire le vide
De cultiver le silence
Sans fin, sans départ
Comme un homme de nulle part
J’serai une flèche enflammée
Dans la palissade de votre société
Si j’réussi à tuer le temps
J’deviendrai immortel
J’emprunte le couloir du présent
J’accède à un autre plan
J’comprends mes gestes et mes actions
J’accepte le changement
Je dis OUI à la vie
J’amorce le mouvement
La lumière est éternelle
J’suis un être de lumière
Je suis … ÉTERNEL !
