Priscilla, reina del desierto

I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor

Las aventuras de Priscilla, reina del desierto (Stephan Elliott, 1993, Australia)
Comedia dramática. Homosexualidad.
Tres artistas de cabaret de Sidney son contratadas para actuar en un hotel en medio del desierto rojo de Australia. Felicia y Mitzi son las reinas del drag y Bernadette transexual. Iniciaran un viaje de dos semanas para atravesar en país en un autobús con música a toda pastilla y repleto de un llamativo vestuario.
Recibió el Oscar al mejor vestuario.

Gloria Gaynor, cantante de música disco y soul estadounidense.

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinkin’ I could never live without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinkin’ how you did me wrong
And I grew strong and I learned how to get along

And so you’re back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock, I should have made you leave your key
If I’d have known for just one second you’d back to bother me

* Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now ‘cause you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did you think I’d crumble, did you think I’d lay down and die

** Oh, no, not I-I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live and I’ve got all my love to give
And I’ll survive, I will survive, hey, hey

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart
Kept tryin’ hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
And I spent, oh, so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry, but now I hold my head up high

And you see me, somebody new
I’m not that chained up little person still in love with you
And so you feel like droppin’ in and just expect me to be free
But now I’m savin’ all my lovin’ for someone who’s lovin’ me
