Singing in the Rain #40 : “Drones” by Muse

Ciao 😄

Questa mattina il jukebox Singing in the Rain vi propone il concept album Drones dei Muse! Sostanzialmente un concept album è formato da canzoni che seguono una trama o un’idea comune e quella di Drones è la crescente disumanizzazione del mondo intero:

Per me, i droni sono metaforicamente psicopatici che permettono comportamenti psicopatici senza possibilità di appello. Il mondo è dominato da droni che utilizzano altri droni per trasformarci tutti in droni. Questo album analizza il viaggio di un essere umano, dalla sua perdita di speranza e dal senso di abbandono, al suo indottrinamento dal sistema per divenire un drone umano, fino all’eventuale defezione da parte dei loro oppressori.

— Matthew Bellamy

Quindi cosa c’è di meglio di un mondo di umani-droni come ambientazione dispotica di oggi?! Un po’ inquietante, ma serve allo scopo!

Non potendo proporvi tutto l’album, per oggi ho scelto la canzone simbolo di questo concept album, Dead Inside, che racconta proprio il primo passo verso la trasformazione in un drone del protagonista!

Buon ascolto e buona giornata 💋

Testo

Dead inside!

Revere a million prayers
And draw me into your holiness
But there’s nothing there
Light only shines from those who share

Unleash a million drones
And confine me then erase me babe
Do you have no soul
It’s like it died long ago

Your lips feel warm to the touch
You can bring me back to life
On the outside you’re ablaze and alive
But you’re dead inside

You’re free to touch the sky
Whilst I am crushed and pulverised
Because you need control
Now I’m the one who’s letting go

You like to give an inch
Whilst I am giving infinity
But now I’ve got nothing left
You have no cares and I’m bereft

Your skin feels warm to caress
I see magic in your eyes
On the outside you’re ablaze and alive
But you’re dead inside!

Feel me now
Hold me please
I need you to see who I am
Open up to me
Stop hiding from me
It’s hurting babe
Only you can stop the pain

Don’t leave me out in the cold
Don’t leave me out to die
I gave you everything
I can’t give you anymore
Now I’ve become just like you

My lips feel warm to the touch
My words seem so alive
My skin is warm to caress
I’ll control and hypnotise

You’ve taught me to lie
Without a trace
And to kill with no remorse
On the outside I’m the greatest guy
Now I’m dead inside!

Singing in the Rain #39 : “Fantasy” by Anya Marina

Jukebox time!!! Esatto, perché è Martedì e c’è Singing in the Rain!

La canzone di oggi usa la Fantasia come sostantivo, definisce fantasy qualcuno che non esiste ma che sembra così reale, anche quando le prove sembrano non lasciare dubbi. È anche una storia d’amore impossibile che però riesce a sopravvivere e continuare proprio grazie alla fantasia.

Vi lascio alla voce dolce di Anya Marina! Buon ascolto e a domani 💋

Testo

You only come out late at night
Just like an ani
mal in the moonlight
You’re wrapped up tight in mystery
You’ve got me so fogged in that I can’t even see

My friends say I’m caught up in fairy tales and dreams
And I confess, with you it feels like make-believe
‘Cause you’re a fantasy, you’re just a fantasy, yeah
You’re a fantasy, Darling to me
Do I really think I see you in the moonlight?
Really wanna hold you ‘cause it feels right
Really wanna see you tonight.

Last night I swore I heard you call my name
Crawled through my window, took my hand and stole me away
Went to the drive-in, speeding like a runaway train
Woke up and smelled your scent in the morning rain

My friends say I’m caught up in fairy tales and dreams
And I confess, with you it feels like make-believe
‘Cause you’re a fantasy, you’re just a fantasy, yeah
You’re a fantasy, Darling to me
Do I really think I see you in the moonlight?
Really wanna hold you ‘cause it feels right
Really wanna see you tonight.

Woke up this morning, couldn’t get you out of my head
I tried to call you up but the number was dead
Drove by your place, convinced that you’d still be around
But I saw a wrecking ball just tore your house down

My friends say I’m caught up in fairy tales and dreams
And I confess, with you it feels like make-believe
‘Cause you’re a fantasy, you’re just a fantasy, yeah
You’re a fantasy, Darling to me
Do I really think I see you in the moonlight?
Really wanna hold you ‘cause it feels right
Really wanna see you tonight.

Really wanna see you tonight…
Really wanna see you, sleep tight.

Singing in the Rain #38 : “Master and Servant” by Depeche Mode

Singing in the Rain il vostro jukebox personale!

La canzone di oggi è forse un simbolo del BDSM – pratica che E. L. James ha tanto usato nelle sua trilogia ma che non va esattamente vista come fa il suo Mr. Grey – ma è anche un esempio dello stile anni ’80 e dei Depeche Mode, nonché di come si possa dire qualcosa di profondo usando come scusa quella di descrivere un gioco sadomaso, qualcosa di cui tutti fingono di ignorare l’esistenza ben sapendo che non è così.

Vi lascio quindi con i Depeche Mode! Buon ascolto e buona giornata 💋

Testo

There’s a new game
We like to play you see
A game with added reality
You treat me like a dog
Get me down on my knees

We call it master and servant
We call it master and servant

It’s a lot like life
This play between the sheets
With you on top and me underneath
Forget all about equality

Let’s play master and servant
Let’s play master and servant

It’s a lot like life
And that’s what’s appealing
If you despise that throwaway feeling
From disposable fun
Then this is the one

Domination’s the name of the game
In bed or in life
They’re both just the same
Except in one you’re fulfilled
At the end of the day

Let’s play master and servant
Let’s play master and servant

Let’s play master and servant
Come on master and servant

Singing in the Rain #37 : “Something About England” by The Clash

Martedì di musica con Singing in the Rain, il jukebox a tema Gran Bretagna 😄

Questa mattina sono un po’ arrabbiata con YouTube e Internet in generale (poi capirete perché 🙄), però non lasciatevi scoraggiare perché la canzone di oggi appartiene ad un stratosferico gruppo inglese, i The Clash, che anche dopo 36 anni riescono a dimostrare quanto poco si cambi! Avevo detto di lasciar stare Brexit e il lato politico ma la storia del video (poi capirete) mi hanno fatto cambiare idea, almeno per oggi 😁

È un testo davvero attuale, che distrugge pian piano la falsa idea contenuta nella prima strofa (Dicono che gli immigrati rubino i coprimozzi/Dei gentiluomini rispettabili/Dicono che sarebbe tutto rose e fiori/Se l’Inghilterra appartenesse di nuovo agli inglesi) raccontando tutte le tragedie e le colpe che hanno colpito gli inglesi proprio a causa loro. Giusto per far riflettere un po’…

Vi lascio in compagnia dei Clash e vi auguro un buon ascolto e una buona giornata 💋

A quanto sembra questa canzone non può essere diffusa online per contenuti SME in 244 Paesi (praticamente, si può vedere solo negli Stati Uniti 😑) perciò vi metto la sola versione “libera” disponibile. => Qui <= però, se avete tempo, c’è l’originale

Testo

They say immigrants steal the hubcaps
Of the respected gentlemen
They say it would be wine an’ roses
If England were for Englishmen again

Well I saw a dirty overcoat
At the foot of the pillar of the road
Propped inside was an old man
Whom time would not erode
When the night was snapped by sirens
Those blue lights circled fast
The dancehall called for an’ ambulance
The bars all closed up fast

My silence gazing at the ceiling
While roaming the single room
I thought the old man could help me
If he could explain the gloom
You really think it’s all new
You really think about it too
The old man scoffed as he spoke to me
I’ll tell you a thing or two

I missed the fourteen-eighteen war
But not the sorrow afterwards
With my father dead and my mother ran off
My brothers took the pay of hoods
The twenties turned the north was dead
The hunger strike came marching south
At the garden party not a word was said
The ladies lifted cake to their mouths

The next war began and my ship sailed
With battle orders writ in bed
In five long years of bullets and shells
We left ten million dead
The few returned to old Piccadily
We limped around Leicester Square
The world was busy rebuilding itself
The architects could not care

But how could we know when I was young
All the canges that were to come?
All the photos in the wallets on the battlefield
And now the terror of the scientific sun
There was masters an’ servants an’ servants an’ dogs
They taught you how to touch your cap
But through strikes an’ famine an’ war an’ peace
England never closed this gap

So leave me now the moon is up
But remember all the tales I tell
The memories that you have dredged up
Are on letters forwarded from hell

The streets were by now deserted
The gangs had trudged off home
The lights clicked off in the bedsits
An’ old England was all alone

Singing in the Rain #36 : “Hanging Tree” by The Lumineers ft. Jennifer Lawrence

Musica, musica e ancora musica con i Martedì di Singing in the Rain 😄

Jennifer Lawrence, credo che per i suoi fan sia risaputo, ha poco a che fare con la musica, ma ha preso parte al videoclip di The Mess I Made dei The Paracadute e ha inciso, ottenendo un disco di platino, The Hanging Tree per Hunger Games – Il canto della rivolta (Parte 2), proprio la canzone che oggi propongo! Non sarà legata alla musica ma quando ci si avvicina riesce ad avere lo stesso successo della carriera d’attrice!

Perciò, ecco a voi una Jennifer Lawrence canterina 😁 Buon ascolto e buona giornata 💋

Testo

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree?
They strung up a man
They say who murdered three.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree?
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree?
Where I told you to run,
So we’d both be free.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree?
Wear a necklace of hope,
Side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree?
Where I told you to run,
So we’d both be free.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree?
They strung up a man
They say who murdered three.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree?
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree
