SONG OF THE WEEK : PIXIE LOTT “Lay Me Down” [Numero 112]

Centododicesimo ”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 “Lay Me Down” il terzo singolo tratto dal terzo album di Pixie Lott, che si chiamerà proprio come il nome d’arte della cantante, che uscirà il 4 Agosto.

“Lay Me Down” segue un’ispirazione pop/Motown e si discosta dal materiale offerto dal suo secondo album  “Young Foolish Happy” (UK #18 ; +100,000 copie vendute), più EDM, a favore di uno stile più retro e genuino e, a mio parere, decisamente migliore e più sulle sue corde.

Tra l’altro in “Lay Me Down” la splendida Pixie mostra la sua vocalità più che in altri pezzi e dimostra di non essere solo una bella pupa bionda, insomma.

Un video che mi ricorda molto “Cool” di Gwen Stefani (sarà che Pixie mi ricorda Gwen un po’ in generale) , un pezzo perfetto per l’estate e soprattutto per trainare il suo nuovo album. Il singolo , “Lay Me Down”,  sarà disponibile dal 27 Luglio.

Ricordo, o per chi non la conosce lo dico, che Pixie Lott (che non è famosa in Italia) ha all’attivo 3 UK #1 Singles ( “Mama Do” , “Boys & Girls” e “All About Tonight” ) , e il suo album di debutto “Turn It Up” (2009) ha venduto oltre 850,000 copie solo in UK!

ENGLISH

For this week i’ve chosen  “Lay Me Down” , the third single taken from Pixie Lott’s upcoming third album, that will be titled simply “Pixie Lott”, and will be out August 4,2014.

“Lay Me Down” is a pop song with a Motown influence and is a new direction from the EDM-ier sound that featured on her 2nd album “Young Foolish Happy” (UK #18 ; +100,000 copies sold) to follow a more genuine and retro approach, in my view a lot better and more on her skills.

Moreover, “Lay Me Down” shows a very good vocal performance by Pixie , that in some of her last songs was a little less recognizable.

A video that reminds a lot of Gwen Stefani’s “Cool” (Pixie reminds me of Gwen in general) , a perfect summer song and the right choice to preview her new album.“Lay Me Down” , the CD single and download,  will be available from July 27.

I remember people , or i say it for who doesn’t know her, that Pixie Lott has 3 UK #1 Singles ( “Mama Do” , “Boys & Girls” e “All About Tonight” ) , and her debut album “Turn It Up” (2009) has sold more than 850,000 copies only in the UK!

*TESTO / LYRICS*

You see me howling at the moon
It’s what you taught me to do (Hmm)
I’m chasing stars just to get back closer to you

You see the ashes by the fire
The only life that I knew (Hmm)
I touched a flame just to get back closer to you

Show me the way,
I’ve done traveling too far
With the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say
There’s no love to be found
When six feet down
And I thought that’d make me closer to you!

Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!

You hear me beating at the door
What else you want me to do
Ooh, you got me crawling up the walls to get closer to you
Yes you do!

Show me the way,
I’ve done traveling too far
With the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say
There’s no love to be found
When six feet down
And I thought that’d make me closer to you!

Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down?
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down?
Closer to you!

[Ohh ohh oh] x2
Closer to you
[Ohh ohh oh] x2

Sow me the way
I’ve done traveling too far
With the cross on my back
And the hole in my heart
Now you say
There’s no love to be found
When six feet down
And I thought that I’d be closer to you!
Closer to you

[Ooh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh] Repeated
[Closer to you]
[Closer to you]
Closer to you!

Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
Why don’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Won’t you lay me down, lay me down, lay me down
Closer to you!
