Centoquattordicesimo ”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 “Ghost” il singolo di debutto dell’artista inglese Ella Henderson , 6a classificata nella 9a edizione di X FACTOR UK , che anticipa il suo disco “Chapter One”, in uscita il 22 Settembre.

“Ghost” è un brano power pop che parla di presenze/assenze, dolori e fantasmi di quei dolori , con un tono quasi dark per quanto sempre e comunque pop, ma di classe.

C’è un po’ di Leona Lewis, un po’ di Adele e sicuramente tanta bravura , sia come songwriter ( tutto il disco è composto da lei, e certi brani INTERAMENTE da lei) che come voce e questo dimostra che chi non vince un talent, se in gamba, può andare ugualmente lontano.

Il singolo è un successo , #1 in UK per 2 settimane e in pochi giorni ha già superato le 400,000 copie vendute ed è attualmente in top 10 e sta anche affacciandosi sul resto del mercato discografico europeo.

ENGLISH

For this week i’ve chosen  “Ghost” , the debut single from UK artist Ella Henderson , 6th classified from X FACTOR UK 9 , which previews her debut album “Chapter One”, to be released September 22 , 2014.

“Ghost” is a power pop song that deals with presences/absences, pain and phantoms of that painful feelings, with a dark tone but with a very pop package, a very classy pop package.

There’s a bit of Leona Lewis, a lot of Adele and certainly a lot of artistry , as songwriter ( all the album has been co-composed by her , with some songs to be completely written by her ) and her voice demonstrates that who doesn’t win a competition can dream and get a chance anyway.

“Ghost” is a success , UK #1 for 2 weeks and more than 400,000 copies sold till now and it’s still in the top 10 and is now reaching heights in other european countries.

*TESTO / LYRICS*

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cos I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

My friends I can figure out
You’re the soul that’s inside of you
It’s rock hard in another you
But your evil was coming through

These eyes sitting on the wall
Well they watch every move I make
Bright light taking in the shape
You go hard, makes my spirit shake

I had to go through hell to prove I’m not insane
Had to meet the devil just to know his name

And that’s when my love was burning
Yeah it’s still burning

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cos I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cos I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Each time that I think you go
I turn round and you’re coping in
And I let you another skin
‘Cos I love living innocent

Oh you never told me
True love was gonna hurt
True pain, it’s own desert
True face that I never learnt

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cos I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cos I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Stall the haunting baby

Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
Give up the ghost
No more haunting baby

I keep going to the river

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cos I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake

I keep going to the river to pray
‘Cos I need something that can wash out the pain
And at most
I’m sleeping all these demons away
But your ghost, the ghost of you
It keeps me awake
