Per questa settimana ho scelto “People Like Us”, nuovo singolo di Kelly Clarkson, nonché ultimo estratto dei brani inediti dal suo “Greatest Hits: Chapter One”, che riassume i suoi 10 anni di carriera.

“People Like Us” è stata paragonata al suo stesso singolo “Stronger” in quanto entrambi uptempo ed anche per il tema trattato, di autostima, accettazione e inno per chi è considerato diverso ed eccentrico dalla società.

Il video, per la regia di Chris Marrs Piliero, credo sia uno dei migliori video della Clarkson, e mette in scena uno scienziato che vive in un mondo grigio, rappresentato dalla massa, che conia un liquido colorato che può conferire la libertà. Un deciso riferimento al delizioso film “Pleasantville” che presentava la stessa peculiarità del rapporto tra grigiore della gente e il colore, che era impersonato dalle persone “diverse”, “libere”. 

Un pezzo che conclude a pieno l’esperienza dei primi 10 anni di musica della Clarkson che si riafferma per la sua grandissima voce, il suo sound e soprattutto i testi.

“People Like Us” è fin’ora arrivato sino alla posizione #77 della Billboard Hot 100.

ENGLISH

This week i’ve chosen “”People Like Us”, new Kelly Clarkson’s single, the last to be taken from her  “Greatest Hits: Chapter One” album, that includes all the hits singles of her first decade in music.

“People Like Us” has been compared to her own hit single “Stronger” because both of them are uptempo EDM numbers and even for the theme of the song, which deals with self esteem, acceptance and considered an Anthem for the different and the eccentrics.

The video, directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, is one of her best indeed. A scientist who lives in the underground who furtively escapes an experimental subject with  full colored apperance into freedom. A clear reference to “Pleasantville” movie, which presented the same peculiarity of the relation between the grayness of normal people agains the coloured free and different people.

A tune that concludes the best Kelly’s first 10 years in music, which reaffirms Clarkson’s great voice, sound and mostly the positive and encouraging lyrics, felt very sincere.

“People Like Us” has so far peaked at #77 on the Billboard Hot 100.

*TESTO / LYRICS*

We come into this world unknown
But know that we are not alone
They try and knock us down
But change is coming, it’s our time now Hey… everybody loses it,
Everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes
And hey… yeah I know what you’re going through
Don’t let it get the best of you, you’ll make it out alive
Ohh

People like us we’ve gotta stick together
Keep your head up, nothing lasts forever
Here’s to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It’s hard to get high when you’re living on the bottom

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Hey, this is not a funeral
It’s a revolution, after all your tears have turned to rage
Just wait, everything will be okay
Even when you’re feeling like it’s going down in flames
Ohh

People like us we’ve gotta stick together
Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
Here’s to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It’s hard to get high when you’re living on the bottom

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
You’ve just gotta turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

They can’t do nothing to you, they can’t do nothing to me
This is the life that we choose, this is the life that we bleed
So throw your fists in the air, come out, come out if you dare
Tonight we’re gonna change forever

Everybody loses it, everybody wants to throw it all away sometimes
Ohh

People like us we’ve gotta stick together
Keep your head up nothing lasts forever
Here’s to the damned, to the lost and forgotten
It’s hard to get high when you’re living on the bottom

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We are all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
You’ve just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
We’re all misfits living in a world on fire
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us

Oh woah oh oh woah oh
You’ve just got to turn it up loud when the flames get higher
Oh woah oh oh woah oh
Sing it for the people like us, the people like us
