SONG OF THE WEEK : SHAKIRA & RIHANNA “Can’t Remember to Forget You” [Numero 91]

Novantunesimo ”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 Remember to Forget You” , il  primo singolo estratto dall’imminente ottavo album di studio di Shakira , a 4 anni di distanza dall’ultimo album in spagnolo “Sale El Sol” (oltre 5 milioni di copie vendute) e ben 5 dall’ultimo in inglese, “She Wolf” (oltre 2 milioni di copie vendute).

CantRememberToForgetYouCover

Shakira propone un brano pop rock con influenze latine -reggae , che sa’ di anni 90 e lo impreziosisce con la presenza di Rihanna anche se, al di la’ del livello di tale popstar , il pezzo reggeva tranquillamente anche senza di lei. Infatti la presenza di Rihanna risulta superflua , viene totalmente “travolta” dal genere e dalla voce cosi riconoscibile, potente e particolare dell’artista latino americana.  Attendiamo il videoclip ufficiale, che magari dara’ alla nostra RiRì qualche extra point! Il brano è descritto come “new wave pop”.

Il brano parla, sostanzialmente, di quanto sia facile dimenticarsi del male che una persona rappresenta per noi o ci fa quando amiamo. La cecità totale di fronte ai sentimenti, che mettono in discussione anche le cose più evidenti.

Un ritorno di Shakira che si mantiene costante fra passato e futuro, con non poche curiosità su quello che ci aspetta per il nuovo album della cantante latino americana , intitolato, semplicemente ( che originalità in quest’ultimo periodo!) “Shakira”, in uscita il 25 marzo.

ENGLISH

For this week i’ve chosen “Can’t Remember to Forget You” , first single taken from the forthcoming ,eight studio, album of the Colombian singer 4 years after her last spanish Language record “Sale El Sol” (over 5 million copies sold) and a good 5 years since last english effort “She Wolf” (over 2 million copies sold).

SHAKIRA

Shakira proposes a pop rock “new wave pop” , latin reggae tinged , song that smells like something from the 90s with a new twist and calls Rihanna on help for a duet that, sorry but, it’s good but unnecessary. This song is strong enough to stand with Shakira alone. Rihanna just feels out of place and her voice is completely overwhelmed by Shakira’s in every way. Maybe the video could ass some extra point for our dear Riri. Who knows!

RIHANNA-NEW-CHIRAG-H-PATEL-DIAMONDS_HEAD

 The song deals with how easy is forgetting about the bad things and the bad influence of a person we love. The total blindness towards love and feelings, that mislead us.

A comeback that place itself halfway through past and future, with a lot of curiosities on what’s next in Shakira’s world for us to hear , in her eight, self titled , (w originality!) new album, to be released March the 25.

*TESTO / LYRICS*

[Shakira]
I left a note on my bedpost
Said not to repeat yesterday’s mistakes
What I tend to do when it comes to you
I see only the good, selective memory

The way he makes me feel yeah, gotta hold on me
I’ve never met someone so different
Oh here we go
He a part of me now, he a part of me
So where you go I follow, follow, follow

[Chorus 1]
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me, the only memory,
is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
Ooooh
I can’t remember to forget you
Ohohohoh ohohohoh

[Verse 2: Rihanna]
I go back again
Fall off the train
Land in his bed
Repeat yesterday’s mistakes
What I’m trying to say is not to forget
You see only the good, selective memory

The way he makes me feel like
The way he makes me feel
I never seemed to act so stupid
Oh here we go
He a part of me now, he a part of me

[Shakira]
So where he goes I follow, follow, follow, oh

[Chorus 2: Both]
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me, the only memory,
is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you

[Bridge: Shakira]
I rob and I kill to keep him with me
I do anything for that boy
I’d give my last dime to hold him tonight
I do anything for that boy

[Bridge: Rihanna]
I rob and I kill to keep him with me
I do anything for that boy
I’d give my last dime to hold him tonight
I do anything for that boy

[Chorus 3: Both]
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I keep forgetting I should let you go
But when you look at me, the only memory,
is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
But when you look at me, the only memory,
is us kissing in the moonlight
Ohohohoh ohohohoh
I can’t remember to forget you
