SONG OF THE WEEK: DEMI LOVATO “Heart Attack” [Numero 65]

Sessantacinquesimo ”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*

ITALIANO

Per questa settimana ho scelto “Heart Attack”, singolo di lancio del quarto album della cantante americana Demi Lovato, “Demi”.

La Lovato è stata recentemente giudice di X FACTOR USA 2, come altra personalità femminile affiancata a niente meno che Britney Spears, e torna a distanza di due anni con un nuovo capitolo musicale.

“Heart Attack” usa la metafora dell’infarto per parlare della difficoltà d’innamorarsi e d’impegnarsi. L’amore è qui raccontato come se fosse un mostro spaventoso, un qualcosa capace di traumatizzare a tal punto da poter portare ad un attacco di cuore.

Demi racconta (nel brano scritto da Mitch Allan, Jason Evigan, Sean Douglas e Nikki Williams) come sia facile giocare e flirtare con chi non ci colpisce a tal punto da farci cadere per lui e quanto sia spaventoso avvertire quel qualcuno che sa renderti totalmente indifeso, debole e bloccato.

Un tema per niente nuovo ma reso bene, un sound accattivante e la voce di Demi decisamente cresciuta rispetto al passato. La canzone è degna, per quanto mi riguarda, della Song of the Week ed è stata anche acclamata dalla critica, più o meno per le stesse ragioni.

Il sound è stato comparato a Kelly Clarkson, anche per quanto riguarda la potenza dei “polmoni” dimostrati da Demi, e ha già venduto oltre 500,000 copie in sole 4 settimane in USA.

ENGLISH

This week i’ve chosen “Heart Attack“,lead single for Demi Lovato’s fourth album, “Demi”.

Lovato has been recently one of the judges of the underperforming X FACTOR USA 2, along with pop princess Britney Spears, Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid and will probably stick to it for a third round.

Demi comes back after a short hiatus and she’s ready to let us enter in her new discographic chapter, the fourth. e torna a distanza di due anni con un nuovo capitolo musicale.

“Heart Attack” uses the metaphor of a heart failure to deal with lovesickness and difficulties in keeping a love relationship. 

Demi tells us (in a song written by Mitch Allan, Jason Evigan, Sean Douglas & Nikki Williams) how easy is to flirt and play with someone who we aren’t really in love and how hard it is to find the one who makes you really weak, defenseless and blocked. Love it’s here represented as a scary monster, a monster able to create an”heart attack”.

Not one of the most original themes but lyrically well written, its sound and Demi’s improved vocals all of these elements are enough to give us a very good tune.

The song received critical acclaim for the same reasons which i ‘ve explained. 

Sound it’s similar to the one of Kelly Clarkson, even for what conceils the powerful lungs that Demi’s showing in this electro pop number and in just 4 weeks the single sold something like 500,000 copies in USA, peaking at number 10 so far in the Billboard hot 100.

*TESTO*

Putting my defenses up
Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did  that, I think I’d have a heart attack

Never put my love out on the line
Never said yes to the right guy
Never had trouble getting what I  want
But when it comes to you I’m never good enough

When I don’t  care
I can play him like a Ken doll
Won’t wash my hair
Then make him  bounce like a basketball

But you make me wanna act like a girl
Paint  my nails and wear high heels
Yes you make me so nervous that I just can’t  hold your hand

You make me glow
But I cover up, won’t let it  show
So I’m putting my defenses up
Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did that, I think I’d have a heart attack
I think I’d have a  heart attack
I think I’d have a heart attack

Never break a sweat for  the other guys
When you come around I get paralyzed
And every time I try  to be myself
It comes out wrong like a cry for help

It’s just not  fair
Pains more trouble than love is worth
I gasp for air
It feels  so good, but you know it hurts

But you make me wanna act like a girl
Paint my nails and wear perfume
For you, make me so nervous that I just can’t hold your hand

You make me glow
But I cover up, won’t let it  show
So I’m putting my defenses up
Cause I don’t wanna fall in love
If I ever did that, I think I’d have a heart attack
I think I’d have a  heart attack
I think I’d have a heart attack

The feelings got lost  in my lungs
They’re burning, I’d rather be numb
And there’s no one else  to blame
So scared I’ll take off and run
I’m flying too close to the  sun
And I’ll burst into flames

You make me glow
But I cover up,  won’t let it show
So I’m putting my defenses up
Cause I don’t wanna fall  in love
If I ever did that, I think I’d have a heart attack
I think I’d  have a heart attack
I think I’d have a heart attack
I think I’d have a  heart attack
I think I’d have a heart attack
