SONG OF THE WEEK: THE SATURDAYS “30 Days” [Numero 21]

Ventunesimo”numero” della mia nuova rubrica SONG OF THE WEEK, consigli personali sui nuovi pezzi che ritengo interessanti o,quanto meno,degni di nota rispetto ad altri nel mondo del mainstream musicale. Non tutto il commerciale è da buttare,e spero che con questa rubrica lo possa dimostrare.

*ABOUT*

“30 Days” è il nuovo singolo delle Saturdays,band inglese tutta al femminile,che ha debuttato nel 2008. Queste super trendy e bellissime ragazze (sono 5),sanno cantare e hanno una perfetta armonia vocale e il loro “dance style” è particolarmente riconoscibile.

Per ora sono celebri solo in madrepatria ma spero che,col tempo,la loro popolarità possa espandersi almeno in alcuni paesi europei,tra i quali l’Italia! Il pezzo in questione,che anticipa il loro 4^album di studio (5^ se consideriamo l’EP”Headlines” del 2010),non si discosta dal precedente stile già intrapreso coi singoli“Notorious” e“All Fired Up” e l’ho scelto perchè,avvicinandosi all’estate,è uno dei pezzi perfetti per riempire la pista di una discoteca e per ballare pensando a qualcosa di piacevole,leggero,ma ben fatto. Il brano è molto semplice ed è una specie di”countdown”al momento di rivedere la persona che si ama,o alla quale si è legati (in questo caso i giorni sono”30″).

Il sound attuale,piu electro pop che pop,probabilmente è piu adatto a loro e riescono bene ad offrire delle hit da dancefloor “uplifting”,ossia che “tirano su di morale”. Inoltre le loro voci intonate e corpose e la moda che sprizza da tutti i pori non sono affatto un deterrente!

Il singolo è uscito due settimane fa e ha raggiunto il 7^posto della UK chart. Il loro prossimo album è in lavorazione e potrebbe uscire nell’autunno del 2012. Segnalo assolutamente la b-side compresa nel singolo,ovvero la provocante“Turn Myself In”,che,a giochi fatti,è anche meglio di”30 Days” come brano (meno da dancefloor e meno”catchy”, come si usa nel gergo <orecchiabile>,ed è piu reminescente del vecchio Saturdays’ style.

*IL TESTO DI “30 DAYS”*

I woke up in the morning
Felt so far away
Marks on my calendar
Don’t hurry up the days.
I wish I could speed up time
Till that moment you are mine
Subtract the distace
Fly in the speed of light
Crazy how I miss you
I’m hurting deep inside.

I know you can’t feel this pain
But don’t worry i’ll be back again.
Pretty soon i’ll be coming home, home, home.

Chorus:
30 days to us (a-ah-ah), 30 days to love (a-ah-ah)
Each second i’m here thinking what I wanna do
What I wanna do when I get to you.
One month, four weeks, too many hours
Sunrise, sun fall
I’m growing tired
30 days to love (a-ah-ah), 30 days to love (a-ah-ah)

Each day you’re not here
Feels like a thousand years
Need a magician to make time disappear.
Once you’re near I won’t let go
You’re what I need and all I know.
I can’t wait to say i’m coming home, home, home.

Chorus:
30 days to us (a-ah-ah), 30 days to love (a-ah-ah)
Each second i’m here thinking what I wanna do
What I wanna do when I get to you.
One month, four weeks, too many hours
Sunrise, sun fall
I’m growing tired
30 days to love (a-ah-ah), 30 days to love (a-ah-ah)

How it feels on day one
It doesn’t get better till I have your love here forever
There’s nothing I want more than you right now

Chorus:
30 days to us (a-ah-ah), 30 days to love (a-ah-ah)
Each second i’m here thinking what I wanna do
What I wanna do when I get to you.
One month, four weeks, too many hours
Sunrise, sun fall
I’m growing tired
30 days to love (a-ah-ah), 30 days to love (a-ah-ah)


*IL TESTO DI “TURN MYSELF IN”*
I was standing by the bar on a table,
I could hardly breathe,
Didn’t fight you no I couldn’t say no, cos you were onto me,

You don’t know what it’s like, I need you bad I feel alone,
You don’t know how it feels, just like a criminal,

Turn myself in tonight, this is me coming clean with my hands up,
Turn myself in tonight, cos I know that alone I’m in danger,
Turn myself in truly, want you bad, you should have me in handcuffs,
Turn myself in tonight, this is me coming clean with my hands up.

The siren’s going, hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo-oo hoo-hoo-hoo,
You’ll hear the sirens going, hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo-oo hoo-hoo-hoo,

No escape cause our bodies grow closer,
I find it hard to leave,
It’s a tense little touch and it lingers,
Like a crumb that’s put on me,

You don’t know what it’s like, I need you bad I feel alone,
You don’t know how it feels, just like a criminal,

Turn myself in tonight, this is me coming clean with my hands up,
Turn myself in tonight, cos I know that alone I’m in danger,
Turn myself in truly, want you bad, you should have me in handcuffs,
Turn myself in tonight, this is me coming clean with my hands up.

The siren’s going, hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo-oo hoo-hoo-hoo,
You’ll hear the sirens going, hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo-oo hoo-hoo-hoo,

Can hear the blue lights coming for me?
Take me, take me,
You could lock me up but I’ll still be free,

Turn myself in tonight, this is me coming clean with my hands up,
Turn myself in tonight, cos I know that alone I’m in danger,
Turn myself in truly, want you bad, you should have me in handcuffs,
Turn myself in tonight, this is me coming clean with my hands up,

The siren’s going, hoo-hoo-hoo, hoo-oo hoo-hoo-hoo
You’ll hear the sirens going
