CACHORRO GRANDE – VOCÊ NÃO SABE O QUE PERDEU – It’s a Brazilian Band.

A couple of weeks back I said to one of my blogger friends that I would like to review a band from where she’s from because I wouldn’t know where to start or where to look to find one.

This has been a good experience, trying to review a song and a band I know nothing about, and don’t even understand what they’re saying in the song. First thing first was to translate the lyrics. This is what I got.

Where do I go
Do not need money
Where do I go
Is happiness all the time

If you are
Will not regret
But if not
What will people say?

You do not know what you missed
You do not see what happened
You do not know what you missed
You do not see what happened

I don’t think this translation is exactly right, seems like it’s missing some ‘it’s’ and ‘are’s’ haha. I’ll be honest I couldn’t see an English band writing something like this, mainly because just seems a bit linear and doesn’t really have any substance or context, just seems like the words have been thrown together.

I enjoyed listening to the song though because it’s upbeat and fast paced, I imagine if I was at a gig and this song came on I’d be jumping around grabbing people around grabbing people around the head, I’d show a video but I can’t find it. Unfortunately I can’t really find a lot on the band, but I have been listening to them a bit more, more out of  wanting to learn more and being inquisitive, and trying to see links between this band and English bands.

Sorry it has taken so long tizz! and i’m sorry if it’s a poor review, I couldn’t find a lot on it. If you give me another band, I will try harder :).

  1. Thanks, dear. You got it all right. It’s a song to be at a gig jumping around like you said indeed. It’s got no deep lyrics and, although you are not really sure about what they are saying, you could get it perfectly. I’d say it’s an enjoyable song though.
    Here’s some correction for the lyrics and yes, you’re right, there are some words missing:

    Where I’ll go to
    I won’t need money
    Where I’ll go to
    There’s happiness all the time

    If you go
    You won’t regret it
    But if you don’t
    What will people say?

    You don’t know what you missed
    You didn’t see what happened
    You don’t know what you missed
    You didn’t see what happened

    They are playing in my city next week but I’m not sure I’ll be able to see them. If I go to the gig, I’ll send you some pics, ok?

    Thanks for the review. Can’t wait for the next one! 🙂

    1. No problem, sorry It took so long to get back, I read your message then totally forgot lol. Cheers, I thought I got it wrong, but it does strike me as the type of song.

      Tell me an album and I’ll do it 🙂

      Thankyou my Brazilian friend!
