SONG OF THE WEEK : CHER “Woman’s World” [Numero 77]

Settantasettesimo ”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 “Woman’s World” il singolo del ritorno di Cher , con un vero e proprio nuovo disco d’inediti a distanza di ben 12 anni dal precedente “Living Proof”.

La cantante era tornata sulle scene già con  il film “Burlesque” nel 2010 , accanto a Christina Aguilera , e aveva partecipato al soundtrack ufficiale del disco ( con due brani su dieci ) e con uno di essi , “You Haven’t Seen the Last Of Me” ( una canzone meravigliosa!) ,  ha aiutato Diane Warren , la scrittrice del pezzo, a vincere  addirittura un Golden Globe !

Il brano sarà anche incluso nel prossimo album della cantante ( nella sua versione deluxe ) dal titolo “Closer To The Truth” , che verrà pubblicato il 24 Settembre e conterrà pezzi scritti da Pink , Timbaland e Bonnie McKee e anche un pezzo (almeno) scritto dalla stessa Cher. Tornando alla Song of the Week, “Woman’s World” bè come fare a non sceglierla?

CLOSERtotheTRUTH CHER

La produzione eurodance e fresca, quindi tanto estiva quanto autunnale invernale e primaverile , è di primordine ma ha anche quel tocco di “retrò” che si distanzia un po’ dalla EDM attuale e rinnova , e al contempo ristabilisce , l’immagine di Cher come “regina della disco”.

CHER

Il video è un inno all’empowerment, proprio come il brano, e vede tante donne ballare da sole nei modi più disparati , inframezzate tutte dalla stessa Cher , che ad ogni apparizione ci presenta una nuova parrucca. Ancora prima di Lady Gaga è sempre stata lei la regina delle parrucche, tant’è che attualmente nessuno ,ancora, sa precisamente come siano i suoi veri capelli ! ( è ironico ma anche verissimo)  

CHER.WOMANSWORLD

Insomma , un titolo chiaro , che esorta le donne a riconoscere la loro potenza nel XXI secolo , una Cher assolutamente NON invecchiata ( si, grazie alla chirurgia plastica ma anche alla sua grande vitalità , ironia e incredibile agilità di performer ) anche se già 67enne e la promessa di un album variegato ma decisamente forte e d’impatto.

Dalle parole della stessa Cher il disco è il più potente dai tempi di “Believe” (disco che ha venduto oltre 20 milioni di copie nel mondo) ed è il primo album che, personalmente, ama veramente tra quelli che lei stessa ha realizzato , dato che si è sempre professata una “non fan” di sé stessa.

Lo aspettiamo con grande curiosità e , intanto “we’re dancing solo, on a club floor” la sua “Woman’s World” a tutto volume.

ENGLISH

This week i’ve chosen “Woman’s World” ,  Cher’s comeback after something like 12 years from latest album “Living Proof”, back in 2001.

The singer reappeared on the musical scenes in 2010 along with Christina Aguilera as co protagonist in “Burlesque” and she gives her voice for two of the ten songs of the soundtrack (which sold in excess of 1 million copies). One of these two songs, “You Haven’t Seen the Last Of Me”  (GREAT SONG) garnered Diane Warren , writer of the song , a Golden Globe !

This song will be even included in “Closer To The Truth” , Cher’s new album, which will be released on September the 24th and will contain songs written by Pink , Timbaland & Bonnie McKee and even (at least) one song written by Cher herself.

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Anyway , better getting back to Song of the Week’s : “Woman’s World”.

The Eurodance feel to it can seem a little “old” but the more you listen to it the more you feel like its strong and fresh , for the summer as much as for all the seasons , and that retrò touch it has got it’s really its power. This song is able to be a dancefloor Anthem in 2013 without being a EDM track that will lose itself into millions of other songs presented by other artists, even very famous and best selling.

“Woman’s World” is the song able to reimagine Cher and, at the same time, keeping her safe at bay, to her “disco queen” status, taken over in 1998 when “Believe” exploded and become one of the best selling singles (and most beautiful songs) of the last 20 years. (The single sold 11+ million copies worldwide) .

 The video is a true Anthem , like the lyrics, and shows different women dancing solo , while Cher appears from time to time with a different ( and very big ) wig everytime. Before Lady Gaga , Cher was the queen of the wigs , and nobody even now knows her real hair! Believe it or not , that’s true.

A clear invitation to all the women to accept their amazingness and power in the XXI century , a absolutely non-aged Cher (She’s fucking 67 years old!) and the promise of a hit album which she considers “the best ever done” and “the first one i really like since Believe”.

With “Believe” album ( more than 20 million copies sold worldwide) Cher finds a connection and she said that this is probably the closest thing to it.

In the meantime , while waiting, “we’re dancing solo, on a club floor” her “Woman’s World” , turning UP the volume.

*TESTO / LYRICS*

I’m dancin’ solo
In the dark on the club floor
I need to let it go
Shake it off stop thinkin’ ’bout you

I lose myself in the beat of the drum
Tryin’ try-tryin’ to forget what you done done
But honey this is a battle that you haven’t won

Torn up, busted, taken apart
I’ve been broken down
Left with a broken heart
But I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world

And I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world

And I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Love Hurts, your lies, they cut me
But now your words don’t mean a thing
I don’t give a damn if you ever love me

‘Cause it don’t matter I’m movin’ on
Go-gonna lose myself in the beat of the drum
‘Cause honey this is a battle that you haven’t won

 Torn up, busted, taken apart
I’ve been broken down
Left with a broken heart
But I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world

And I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world

And I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

All the women in the world
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world
Everybody in the club
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world
All the women in the world
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world
Everybody in the club
Stand up come together now
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world

And I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world

Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world
Tell the truth
This is a woman’s world

And I’m stronger
Strong enough to rise above
This is a woman’s world
This is a woman’s world
