Un bene dell’anima

Una canzone tratta da Lorenzo 2015 CC., il nuovo album di Jovanotti, in uscita a breve. L’album è in prevendita su iTunes e Un bene dell’anima è una delle tracce disponibili in anteprima. Una di quelle canzoni che la senti e niente, inizi a pensare.

Che cos’è un amico
nessuno lo sa dire
centomila libri
non lo sanno spiegare
nonostante ogni giorno
esca fuori uno
con una teoria
con qualche bella idea
la filosofia non me l’ha ancora detto
come mai un casino
sembra un posto perfetto
come mai un difetto
rende bello un viso
come niente più del caos
può essere preciso

Quanto abbiamo riso
e quanto rideremo
come in quella foto
che ho la faccia da scemo
quante notti svegli
a raccontarci storie
a cantare canzoni
cambiando parole
forse è tutto qui
che cosa vuoi che dica
forse è proprio questo
il bello della vita
poter dire un giorno
è stata una fatica
ma,
ma ti voglio un bene dell’anima
oh oh
io ti voglio un bene dell’anima

Rimanerci male per una stronzata
essere gelosi di una fidanzata
fare finta di niente
ma sentire nel petto
che qualcosa manca
ancora di non detto
essere d’accordo
che non si è d’accordo
segnati sta cosa
prima che mi scordo
ridi perché a me il tramonto mi commuove
dopo che un tramonto mi portò via il sole
e vai dal dottore anche se non hai niente
io ho una soluzione per il medio oriente
io trasformo in mito
anche una gomma bucata
tu daresti un occhio
per una battuta
forse è tutto qui
che cosa vuoi che dica
forse è proprio questo
il bello della vita
poter dire un giorno
è stato una fatica
ma,
ma ti voglio un bene dell’anima
ohh ohh
io ti voglio un bene dell’anima
eh eh
io ti voglio un bene dell’anima
oh oh
io ti voglio un bene dell’anima
è forse tutto qui
che cosa vuoi che dica
forse è proprio questo
il bello della vita
poter dire un giorno
è stato una fatica
ma io ti voglio un bene dell’anima
oh oh
io ti voglio un bene dell’anima
e io ti voglio un bene dell’anima

Oh mamma don’t die

[media id=36 width=500 height=400]

Nuovo singolo per gli Aqua, estratto dall’ultimo loro greatest hits, che in Italia non è ancora arrivato.

Atmosfere stranamente dark rispetto a quello che la band ci aveva abituato e un testo decisamente triste.

We dreamed a dream…
Woke up and lived it…
We had the music in our hands…

The drops of rain…
Became a river…
And now it’s time to end this dance
So “Thank You!”

My mamma said that the best thing in life was getting me to love
Somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
My mamma said she would give her life up for me

My mamma said
My mamma said
My ma-ma-mamma

My mamma said that the worst thing in life was getting used to love
Somebody is harder than anything else in this world, baby
Knowing you’re going to, knowing you’re going to lose it all…

1! 2! 3! 4!

Mamma don’t leave
Don’t go
Don’t run
Don’t hide
Don’t cry
Don’t ever feel scared now

Mamma just crossed
Just crossed
To the parallel world
She crossed
She crossed
To the multiverse

Circling protons
Soul vibrations
Circling neutrons
All vibrations

Mamma just crossed
Just crossed
To the parallel world
She crossed
She crossed
To the multiverse

And now you’re lying there
Taking your last breath
I’m holding back the tears
Oh, mamma don’t die…

My mamma said that the best thing in life was getting me to love
Somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
My mamma said she would give her life up for me

My mamma said
My mamma said
My my-my-mamma..

My mamma said that the worst thing in life was getting used to love
Somebody is harder than anything else in this world, baby
Knowing you’re going to, knowing you’re going to lose it all

(Oh!)

My mamma said,
My mamma said!
My mamma said,
My mamma said!

Mamma, hold on
Give in
Let go
Release yourself
From everything
Out there

Mamma just crossed
Just crossed
To the parallel world
She crossed
She crossed
To the multiverse

Circling electrons
Soul vibrations
Circling electrons
All vibrations

Mamma just crossed
Just crossed
To the parallel world
She crossed
She crossed
To the multiverse

And now you’re lying there
Taking your last breath
I’m holding back the tears
Oh, mamma don’t die…

My mamma said that the best thing in life was getting me to love
Somebody higher than anything else in this world, baby
My mamma said she would give her life up for me.

My mamma said
My mamma said
My ma-ma-mamma
My mamma said
My mamma said
My ma-ma-mamma
My mamma said
My mamma said…

Uprising is here

Uprising è qui. Il nuovo singolo dei Muse tratto dall’album di prossima uscita The Resistance.

The Resistance

Audio clip: é necessario Adobe Flash Player (versione 9 o superiore) per riprodurre questa traccia audio. Scarica qui l’ultima versione. Devi inoltre avere attivato il JavaScript nel tuo browser.

The paranoia is in bloom, the PR
The transmissions will resume
They’ll try to push drugs
Keep us all dumbed down and hope that
We will never see the truth around

(So come on)

Another promise, another scene, another
A package not to keep us trapped in greed
With all the green belts wrapped around our minds
…and endless red tape to keep the truth confined

(So come on)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

Interchanging mind-control come let the
Revolution take its toll if you could
Flick the switch and open your third eye, you’d see that
We should never be afraid to die

(So come on)

Rise up and take the power back, it’s time that
The fat cats had a heart attack, you know that
Their time is coming to an end, we have to
Unify and watch our flag ascend

(So come on)

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

(So come on)

(Oi) x3
(Oi) x4
(Oi) x4

They will not force us
They will stop degrading us
They will not control us
We will be victorious

(So come on)

A chi importa della famiglia da cui vieni?

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from?
No giving up when you’re young and you want some

Running around again
Running from running

Waking up
In the midday sun
Whats to live for?
You could see what Ive done
Staring at emotion
In the light of day
I was running
From the things that youd say

We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.
We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from?
No giving up when you’re young and you want some

Running around again
Running from running
Running around again
Running from running

I was a boy
At an open door
Why you staring
Do you still think that you know?
Looking for treasure
In the things that you threw
Like a magpie
I live for glitter, not you

We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.
We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from
No giving up when you’re young and you want some

Now Im sitting alone
Im finally looking around
Left here on my own
Im gonna hurt myself
Maybe losing my mind
Im still wondering why
Had to let the world let it bleed dry

We are not what you think we are
We are not what you think we are
We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden

Teenage dreams in a teenage circus
Running around like a clown on purpose
Who gives a damn about the family you come from
No giving up when you’re young and you want some

Running around again
Running from running
Running around again
Running from running

We are not what you think we are
We are golden, we are golden.

Peccato per la bassa qualità del file audio. Però trovo la nuova canzone di Mika We are golden, veramente carina, orecchiabile ed assolutamente rainbow.

Love etc?

Ok. Prima o poi la smetto di postare video.

Ma questo dei Pet Shop Boy è semplicemente fantastico. Non solo il video, ma anche la canzone.

You need more, you need more, you need more
You need more, you need more, you need more
You need more, you need more, you need more

Boy, it’s tough getting on in the world
When the sun doesn’t shine and a boy needs a girl
It’s about getting out of a rut, you need luck
But you’re stuck and don’t know how, oh

Don’t have to be a big bucks Hollywood star
Don’t have to drive a super car to get far
Don’t have to live a life of power and wealth
Don’t have to be beautiful but it helps

Don’t have to buy a house in Beverly hills
Don’t have to have your daddy paying the bills
Don’t have to live a life of power and wealth
Don’t have to be beautiful but it helps

You need more
Than a big blank check to be a lover
Or a gulf stream jet to fly you door to door
Somewhere chic on another shore

You need more, you need more, you need more
You need more, you need more, you need more
You need love, you need love, you need love

Too much of anything is never enough
Too much of everything is never enough

Boy, it’s tough getting on in the world
When the sun doesn’t shine and a boy needs a girl
It’s about getting out of a rut, you need luck
But you’re stuck and you don’t know how, oh

Don’t have to be a big bucks Hollywood star
Don’t have to drive a super car to get far
Don’t have to wear a smile much colder than ice
Don’t have to be beautiful but it’s nice

You need more
Than Gerhard Richter hangin’ on your wall
A chauffeur driven limousine on call
To drive your wife and lover to a white tie ball

You need more, you need more, you need more
You need more, you need more, you need more
You need love

I believe that we can achieve
(You need more, you need more, you need more)
The love that we need
(You need more, you need more, you need more)

I believe, call me naive
(You need more, you need more, you need more)
Love is for free, oh
(You need more, you need more, you need more)

Don’t have to be a big bucks Hollywood star
Don’t have to drive a super car to get far
Don’t have to live a life of power and wealth
Don’t have to be beautiful but it helps
Beautiful but it helps, beautiful but it helps

Heartbreak Make Me A Dancer

È tutto il giorno che la ascolto.

A tutto volume nelle cuffiette.

E no, non riesco a stare fermo.

[media id=15 width=400 height=248]

Heartbreak makes me a dancer, dancer
DJ give me the answer, answer
Love, stop getting me down, down, down
Do it alone, I could do it alone
Heartbreak make me a dancer, dancer
Keep my heart beating faster, faster
Love, stop bringing me down, down, down
Do it alone, I could do it alone

Disco bambina

Un tuffo nei ricordi, sfogliando foto a caso su Flickr.

Disco disco dove io
sono veramente io
è fantastico
superfantastico …
E la dimensione che
mi fa vivere con te
l’avventura che c’è dentro di me…

Disco disco manda via
tutta la malinconia
è la favola
la superfavola
dove sto come vorrei
dove vivo i sogni miei
col mio principe più azzurro che mai …

Bambina bambina
“Sing along and dance bambina”
bambina bambina
disco bambina.
Bambina bambina bambina ba….
“Ace of diamonds, Jack of Spades
change your partner, promenade”
Bravo bravo bravo
disco bambina.
Bambina bambina bambina ba…
“One and two and three and four
help yourself and ask for more”
Follow me as I step out on the floor …

Disco disco dove io
sono veramente io
è fantastico
superfantastico …
E la dimensione che
mi fa vivere con te
l’avventura che c’è dentro di me …

Disco disco per magia
chiudo gli occhi e volo via
come Peter Pan
e come Superman …
C’è la musica che va
ballo ballo sono già
nel mio viaggio per la felicità.

Tormentoni da ufficio

È che in ufficio le canzoni vanno e vengono.

E dopo il periodo Pop Porno (inaugurato dal sottoscritto. E sottolineamolo!), dopo il periodo Tocca tocca toccami, dopo il periodo Giusy Ferreri in tutte le sue forme, ora è il periodo X-Factor.

E la canzone che va per la maggiore è questo remake di Contessa dei Decibel, anno 1980, fatto dai Bastard son of Dioniso.

Ok, è carina e piena di energia.

Ma io preferisco l’originale.

Non puoi più pretendere di avere tutti quanti attorno a te
Non puoi più trattare i tuoi amanti come fossero bigné

Vuoi solo le cose che non hai
Parli delle cose che non sai
Cerchi di giocare ma non vuoi
Pensi solamente ai fatti tuoi

Chi sei? C-c-c-contessa
Tu non sei più la stessa

Vuoi che io rimanga nel tuo letto per poi sbattermi su e giù
Non ti lamentare se domani non ti cercheremo più

Ma vorrei soltanto averti qui
Sei accattivante già così
Ti difendi con il DTT
Fai pesare troppo quei tuoi sì

Chi sei? C-c-c-contessa
Tu non sei più la stessa

Pensi che ogni cosa di concreto sia da riferire a te
Tu fai la misteriosa per nascondere un segreto che non c’è

Ma nel tuo castello come va?
Vivi la tua vecchia nobiltà
Non sai neanche tu la verità
Vendi a caro prezzo la realtà

Il tuo castello come va?
Vivi la tua vecchia nobiltà
Non sai neanche tu la verità
Vendi a caro prezzo la realtà

Melodies of life

È che il casuale di iTunes l’ha tirata fuori.

E mi son messo a vedere se su YouTube c’era qualche video. E ho trovato questo:

E mi son ricordato di quanto mi era piaciuto Final Fantasy XI, di come mi sia rifiutato di finire l’X-2, mentre non abbia assolutamente tempo per giocare al XII, il cui disco credo sia nella Play spenta da ormai troppi mesi.

Alone for a while I’ve been searching through the dark
For traces of the love you left inside my lonely heart
To weave by picking up the pieces that remain
Melodies of life–love’s lost refrain

Our paths they did cross, though I cannot say just why
We met, we laughed, we held on fast, and then we said goodbye
And who’ll hear the echoes of stories never told?
Let them ring out loud till they unfold
In my dearest memories, I see you reaching out to me
Though you’re gone, I still believe that you can call out my name

A voice from the past, joining yours and mine
Adding up the layers of harmony
And so it goes, on and on
Melodies of life,
To the sky beyond the flying birds–forever and beyond

So far and away, see the bird as it flies by
Gliding through the shadows of the clouds up in the sky
I’ve laid my memories and dreams upon those wings
Leave them now and see what tomorrow brings

In your dearest memories, do you remember loving me?
Was it fate that brought us close and now leaves me behind?

Repeat

If I should leave this lonely world behind
Your voice will still remember our melody
Now I know we’ll carry on
Melodies of life
Come circle round and grow deep in our hearts
As long as we remember

Back to the corner where I first saw you

The man who can’t be moved dei The Script.

Una canzone veramente bella, dolce, ma triste e malinconica.

Proprio quello che ci vuole ora?

Going back to the corner where I first saw you,
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I’m not gonna move,
Got some words on cardboard got your picture in my hand,
Saying if you see this girl can you tell her where I am,
Some try to hand me money they don’t understand,
I’m not…broke I’m just a broken hearted man,
I know it makes no sense, but what else can I do,
How can I move on when I’m still in love with you…

Cos if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet,
And you’d see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.

So I’m not moving…
I’m not moving.

Policeman says son you can’t stay here,
I said there’s someone I’m waiting for if it’s a day, a month, a year,
Gotta stand my ground even if it rains or snows,
If she changes her mind this is the first place she will go.

Cos if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet,
And you’d see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.

So I’m not moving…
I’m not moving.

I’m not moving…
I’m not moving.

People talk about the guy
Who’s waiting on a girl…
Oohoohwoo
There are no holes in his shoes
But a big hole in his world…
Hmmmm

and maybe I’ll get famous as man who can’t be moved,
And maybe you won’t mean to but you’ll see me on the news,
And you’ll come running to the corner…
Cos you’ll know it’s just for you

I’m the man who can’t be moved
I’m the man who can’t be moved…

Cos if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I can be,
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet,
And you’d see me waiting for you on the corner of the street.
[Repeat in background]

So I’m not moving…
I’m not moving.

I’m not moving…
I’m not moving.

Going back to the corner where I first saw you,
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag not I’m not gonna move.
