SONG OF THE WEEK : PALOMA FAITH “Can’t Rely On You” [Numero 90]

Novantesimo ”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 “Can’t Rely On You” , il  primo singolo estratto dall’imminente terzo album della cantautrice inglese Paloma Faith, dal titolo “A Perfect Contradiction”.

Il pezzo, prodotto da Pharrell Williams , è altamente riconoscibile per la sua produzione ( la base ricorda parecchio “Blurred Lines”, che tutti conoscono ) ma lo stile del videoclip, della stessa Paloma e della sua voce riescono a farci dimenticare completamente quel sexy-porno brano a favore di un brano decisamente più profondo , dark e mid-tempo che innova il sound di Paloma Faith, pur rimanendo altamente riconoscibile.

“Can’t Rely On You” continua la sfilza di pezzi negativi sul fattore amore-mancanza di fiducia-rapporti distrutti di cui Paloma Faith è abituata a parlarci sin dal primo album per affondarci il coltello nel secondo (entrambi gli album hanno superato le 600,000 copie vendute in UK classificandosi entrambi double platinum!) ma questa svolta più elettronica , anche se lontana dall’elettronica che impazza in discoteca, che è una via di mezzo col synthpop la porta in una nuova dimensione , interessantissima, che potrebbe regalarci ottime gemme per questo suo imminente terzo album, in uscita nel Marzo 2014.

Chicca: nel videoclip , all’inizio, Paloma fa un tributo all’Italia parlando in Italiano. Deliziosa…anche se…a Paloma, gli accenti!

ENGLISH

For this week i’ve chosen “Can’t Rely On You” , first single taken from the forthcoming Paloma Faith’s album , to be titled “A Perfect Contradiction”.

The tune , produced by Pharrell Williams , is highly recognizable in his production ( reminds A LOT of “Blurred Lines”, whom everybody knows) but the style of the video , Paloma herself and her voice are all elements able to make us completely forget about that dancy song to let ourselves merge into this deep, dark , mid tempo song that innovates Paloma’s style , even if not completely.

“Can’t Rely On You” follows the same theme expressed by Paloma in almost all of her songs , love and loss of trust broken relationships with high compairasons and a poetry-like style of writing, from the first and even more of the second album (both the sets have sold each 600,000 copies  in UK , getting a  double platinum certification!) but this time in a synthpop-electronic way , but very far away from the one you could overhear in disco clubs or everywhere on the radio and this could give us great pop gems waiting for us to be heard for her third album, to be released in March 2014.

*TESTO / LYRICS*

Help me
How would you gon’ do, no this way
I work so hard for you everyday
While you out, late night
Girl, what you do?
Chillin’ with who?
While I’m sitting at home
Come on with it!

(I don’t know what this world is coming to…)

I just can’t rely on you
I just can’t rely on you
Yeah, you got that good stuff but that don’t last
So I just can’t rely on you
Just can’t rely on you

Oh Lord
How am I to ever explain?
I’m a melted awkward and right down the drain
‘Cause if you don’t want me
(Release)
Repeat
(Believe)
Want some
(Want some)

He will take right out your way
Come on with it!

(I don’t know what this world is coming to…)

I just can’t rely on you
I just can’t rely on you
Yeah, you got that good stuff but that don’t last
So I just can’t rely on you
Just can’t rely on you

Time to go
Really
You can say what you want
But I’m not that dull
Can’t stop me
Oh my man
Oh Lord

(I don’t know what this world is coming to…)

I just can’t rely on you
I just can’t rely on you
Yeah, you got that good stuff but that don’t last
So I just can’t rely on you
Just can’t rely on you

Just pulling in like it is
Wait a minute
Wait a minute
Change your ways
You don’t deserve it babe
Look at here
Cause that’s why you drove me out of my mind

I just can’t rely on you
I just can’t rely on you
Yeah, you got that good stuff but that don’t last
So I just can’t rely on you
Just can’t rely on you
