SONG OF THE WEEK: MARIAH CAREY “Almost Home” [Numero 59]

Cinquantottesimo ”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 “Almost Home“, nuovo singolo di Mariah Carey, dopo qualche mese dal disastroso “Triumphant”. Il brano serve da colonna sonora portante al nuovo film della Disney, “Oz The Great and Powerful”, ed è vede anche la partecipazione di Mariah come co-writer.

Il pezzo è prodotto da Stargate ed è una power ballad, per definizione un pezzo lento per definizione ma con base energica, molto innovativa e moderna, che mi ha colpito positivamente ed è ,onestamente, uno dei migliori singoli della Carey, in almeno una decade, se non il migliore.

Non sono mai stato un fan della Mariah “r’n’b/hip hop” e il ritorno ad una ballad, con un twist moderno, è stata una mossa vincente e spero venga inclusa nell’lp nuovo della cantante, che lancerà a breve.

Si percepisce un ritorno al sound che l’ha resa cio’ che è, quello travolgente ed intenso delle sue ballad dei 90s, indimenticabili, e ha un messaggio ispirazionale.

Il video del brano è stato curato, niente proprio di meno che, da David LaChappelle, del quale si potra’ probabilmente riconoscere il portamento e la scelta dell’abito teatrale ma classico che indossa la Carey.

Welcome back, Mariah!

ENGLISH:

This week i’ve chosen “Almost Home”, Mariah Carey’s new single, after a disastrous “Triumphant”, released some months ago. The tune has been chosen as the lead song from the soundtrack of the newest Disney’s movie, “Oz The Great and Powerful”,and sees Mariah as a co-writer.

The song is produced by Stargate and is a power ballad, a slow track with a strong and modern base, very new, and this is what captured my attention, most of all because it’s a great step forward in comparison to Mariah’s singles of the last 10 years, which were, in my opinion, very very under expectations and very boring. This is probably one of the best singles she released post “Glitter”, published in 2001, if not even the best one.

I’ve never been a fan of Mariah’s “r’n’b/hip hop” songs, and her return into a ballad, with a modern twist, mood is a winning strike for her in my opinion, and i hope that it will be included in Mariah’s new album, of a forthcoming release.

 It’s clear a return to Mariah’s “ballads of the 90s” roots, unforgettable and with an inspiration message

The director of the video is the Genius David LaChappelle, whose touch can be recognized in the style of Mariah’s look, theatrical but classic.

Welcome back, Mariah!

*TESTO*

Hey, hey…..
You’re almost home
You’re almost home
You’re almost home

I’ve seen the light in the sky
In the skies are like fireflies
Burning bright, just to vanish in the dark

I’ve held hope in my two hands
That there would be another chance
To find the kingdom, I’m believing in my heart
Cause underneath the good there’s something greater than you know

When you’re almost there
And you’re almost home
Just open up your eyes and go, go
When you’re almost there, almost home
Know you’re not alone
You’re almost home

When you run, run so far
You’ve forgotten who you are
Where you’re from, it’s like some other universe
You count your steps, like they’re regrets
You catch one breath then lose the rest
Wrong is right, right is left
And there’s nowhere left to turn

So don’t believe in everything
You think, you think you know

When you’re almost there
And you’re almost home
Just open up your eyes and go, go
When you’re almost there, almost home
Know you’re not alone
You’re almost home

When you let your heart be the compass
You won’t get lost, not if you trust it
When you hear the sound of the trumpet
Louder than ever before

Oh, when you’re almost there
Almost home
Just open up your eyes and go, go
Cause you’re almost there
Almost home
Know you’re not alone
You’re almost home

When you’re almost there
Almost home
Just open up your eyes and go, go
Almost there
You’re almost home
Know you’re not alone
You’re almost home
