SONG OF THE WEEK : ALEXANDRA STAN “Thanks For Leaving” [Numero 108]

Centottesimo ”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 “Thanks For Leaving” , il singolo del ritorno sul mercato discografico di Alexandra Stan , dopo aver concluso il (lungo) ciclo di singoli dell’era “Saxobeats” (primo lp, del 2011).

Il secondo album sarebbe dovuto arrivare prima, circa nel Settembre 2013 , ma una serie di fatti di cronaca riguardanti la stessa Alexandra hanno fatto postporre il tutto. Infatti la donna ha subito violenze domestiche da parte dell’ex fidanzato e manager Marcel Prodan e, dopo queste brutte e spiacevoli situazioni , ha deciso di prendersi un periodo di pausa ulteriore per riprendersi e mettere a punto il suo ritorno. Ne risulta fuori un brano inaspettato , per chi conosce la carriera dance-tamarra (sostanzialmente) della Stan.

Una specie di ballad power pop dove Alexandra, cantando anche molto bene, dimostra di saper fare anche musica più seria e che parla di sé  (non solo “Lemonade” , “Lollipop” ed altre robe sex-addicted) , e in particolare di questa sofferta vicenda che l’ha toccata in prima persona.

La cantante ha perdonato l’uomo ma ,in ogni caso, la violenza e il successivo ricovero in ospedale sono stati episodi che non hanno potuto non trovare uno spazio in una canzone.

Nel frattempo è gia disponibile anche un nuovo singolo dance della Stan , “Cherry Pop”. Il nuovo album arriverà nell’autunno 2014.

ENGLISH

For this week i’ve chosen Thanks For Leaving” , comeback single for the romanian artist Alexandra Stan , after the (long) cycle of singles for the debut album “Saxobeats” (2011).

The second album should’ve been released back in September 2013 but an unfortunate cycle of events postponed everything to fall 2014. Alexandra was beaten by her ex fiancè and manager Marcel Prodan , and consequently hospitalized, and after these facts Stan decided to give herself a longer break to recover and think about her coming back a little bit more.

 The result of the waiting is an unexpected power pop ballad , in which she sings those difficult times and speaks about her , in a complete new light if we consider that she only did club house dance with no-personal lyrics.

Alexandra has forgiven Marcel , but nothing could hold her from writing about this and, thanks, cause it’s her best song to date!

In the meantime is already out her new dance single , “Cherry Pop” , and her next album ,as already hinted up here, will be released in the fall of 2014.

*TESTO / LYRICS*

We crashed and burned
A lesson learned
We fell head first
Silly us, so stupid
Our lines got blurred
We walked into the fire
Knowing we’d get burned

But now my love has turned to hate
And I won’t spend another day with you inside my head
I know that we all make mistakes
‘Cause you’re the biggest price I’ve paid
And now I’m paying off that debt, oh

Go on, sent you packing
So long, you’ve been slacking
We’re so out of reasons
Thank you for leaving
My heart’s been re-listed
You have been evicted
You’re out, I’m spring cleaning
So thank you and
Thanks for leaving

I broke my rules
Let you play me fool
Thought I was so cool
Silly me, so stupid
How could you be so cruel
Turned me into a big liar
Things I’ve said I’d never do

But now my love has turned to hate
And I won’t spend another day with you inside my head
I know that we all make mistakes
‘Cause you’re the biggest price I’ve paid
And now I’m paying off that debt, oh

Go on, sent you packing
So long, you’ve been slacking
We’re so out of reasons
Thank you for leaving
My heart’s been re-listed
You have been evicted
You’re out, I’m spring cleaning
So thank you and
Thanks for leaving

Every crack in the wall it reminds me of
All the hundred million reasons I put down my gloves
I can’t believe this was real
And the picture that still sits by the fireplace
Every time I had to see your little stupid face
I don’t think I can deal

Go on, sent you packing
So long, you’ve been slacking
We’re so out of reasons
Thank you for leaving
My heart’s been re-listed
You have been evicted
You’re out, I’m spring cleaning
So thank you and
Thanks for leaving
