Todos mis años de secundaria y preparatoria los pasé escuchando heavy metal. Uno de mis grupos favoritos era el trío Canadiense Triumph. Cuando los escuché por primera vez pensé “¿Cómo tres personas pueden hacer tanto ruido?”

Rik Emmet era un virtouso de la guitarra, y cuando vi a Gil Moore en uno de los primeros videos que MTV promovió vía satélite, supe que tenía que aprender a tocar la batería.

Aquí te presentó una de mis canciones favoritas de Triumph, la que yo creo que es su mejor letra: Fight the Good Fight.

Aquí está la letra de Fight the Good Fight:

Days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong
You got to read between the lines

Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay

The Good Book says it’s better to give than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothin’ in my pockets I got nothin’ up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart

Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
I am counting on you
You know what you’ve got to do

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It’s your only way

All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance
Where you’ll fit into the plan
But you’re the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can

You think a little more money can buy your soul some rest
You’d better think of something else instead
You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself
You’d better take a look inside your head

Nothing is easy, nothing good is free on earth
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There’s an answer in your heart

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay

Every moment of your lifetime
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay
