SONG OF THE WEEK: TEGAN AND SARA “I Was a Fool” [Numero 55]

Cinquantacinquesimo ”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*

ITALIAN:

Per questa settimana ho scelto “I Was a Fool” del duo indie rock pop di Tegan e Sara, gemelle identiche canadesi, che sono ormai nella music industry dal lontano 1995.

Tegan-Sara

Il brano è incluso nel loro settimo album “Heartthrob”, uscito un paio di settimane fa,che ha già conquistato la 3^posizione della Billboard 200, con quasi 50,000 copie vendute nei primi 7 giorni.

HEARTTHROB

In realtà il singolo apripista è la più electro indie “Closer”, altro bel pezzo, ma la mia attenzione si è da subito focalizzata su questa stupenda ballata, magistrale, “I Was a Fool”, sinceramente la perla di questo settimo lavoro delle ragazze canadesi.

Il testo parla di come una persona innamorata riesca sempre a perdonare chi ama, salvandolo più e più volte da stesso, e proprio per questa naturale propensione a farsi”in quattro” per questa persona si finisce “stupidi”, si perdono di vista i propri obiettivi e viene tutto ridotto all’attesa snervante di una chiamata, di un messaggio, di un segno dell’altro.

Il piano, le voci, l’intensità melodica del brano lo rendono davvero senza tempo e consiglio a chiunque di ascoltarlo e farlo proprio, perché è proprio uno di quei rari brani che possono parlare a tutti indistintamente senza essere, però, banali e generici, bensì indimenticabili e che lasciano il segno.

Spero vivamente che “I Was a Fool” sarà scelto come loro secondo estratto o terzo, perché merita davvero di essere maggiormente conosciuta e apprezzata.

ENGLISH:

This week i’ve chosen “I Was  A Fool”, of Canadian indie pop rock’s duo Tegan & Sara, identical twin sisters who are around in the music industry since 1995, for those who didn’t know.

The tune is included in their seventh studio album, “Heartthrob”, released a couple of weeks ago and peaked at number 3 in USA, with around 50,000 copies sold in the first 7 days, very good result for indie artists.

The first single of this new album is “Closer”, electro indie tune, but my attentions is focused on this “I Was a Fool”, magistral ballad, that i consider the highlight of the album by far.

The lyrics are about a person in love who always forgives his beloved one, saving him multiple times from itself, and is this natural strenght to give ourselves completely to the ones we love that, at the same time, makes us “stupid” “fool”, and we lose sight of our priorities, sometimes dignity, and it all comes down to a single call, a message, a sign we desperately look for when there are troubles in a couple or ewhen verything is about to crash.

Piano, voices and melody of this song are really timeless and i suggest everyone to listen to it cause everyone can really relate to it, and the cool thing is that this is of the rare songs who can appeal to everyone without being too much commercial, dull or too simple. This tune is impressive and will stand the test of time, in my opinion.

I really hope “I Was a Fool” will be chosen as a single, don’t mind if the second or third, because this really deserves to be heard from a wider audience than the fans who have bought or will buy this interesting album.

*TESTO*

Do you remember I searched you out How I climbed your city’s walls Do you remember me as devout How I prayed for your calls I stood still, it’s what I did Love like ours just never fits I stuck around I did behave I saved you every time I was a fool for love I was a fool for love I was a fool [x2] Then you blame me and block me out How long did you think I’d last Then you disappeared for weeks to pout How many times could I pack But stand still, it’s all I did Love like ours just never fits Still I stuck around I did behave I saved you every time I was a fool for love I was a fool for love I was a fool [x2] If you’re worried that I might’ve changed Left behind all of my foolish ways You best be looking for somebody else Without a foolish heart A foolish heart But stand still is all we did Love like ours just never fits I stuck around I did behave I saved you every time I was a fool for love I was a fool for love I was a fool [x5]
