*ABOUT*

Per questa settimana , ho scelto “Shake It Off” il singolo del debutto pop di Taylor Swift. Si! Dopo 8 anni di country, Taylor si scrolla di dosso l’etichetta contry per muoversi verso una dimensione più “allegra”, diciamo, con questo primo divertentissimo singolo.

 

“Shake It Off” è stata criticata per essere un pezzo generico, molto simile ad altri pezzi di altre popstars del panorama attuale, una triste dipartita dai sui pezzi precedenti, decisamente più maturi ed impegnati. Ma seriamente? Secondo me invece il pezzo è semplicemente una naturale conseguenza al precedente capitolo musicale della Swift.

Il suo 4^album “Red”, pubblicato nel Novembre 2014, era gia’ ampiamente influenzato dal pop (tutti i singoli estratti erano praticamente pop!) e questo è semplicemente un nuovo step. In tutto ciò spero solo che la Swift non abbandoni le sue magnifiche ballads, perché sarebbe un gran peccato. NON FARE DANCE/EDM O TI PICCHIO.

“Shake It Off” parla di come scrollarsi i pregiudizi di dosso e ,sostanzialmente, fregarsene di quello che dice la gente perché in ogni caso, chiunque continuerà a criticarti e tenerti sotto la lente d’ingradimento anche se tenti di essere il migliore di tutti. Il video ufficiale, molto carino, mostra ancora una volta il lato divertente e imbranato della Swift, cosa che amo molto in una popstar, il prendersi in giro “con filosofia”.

“Shake it Off” in sole 3 settimane ha venduto oltre 1 milione di copie in USA (#1).

ENGLISH


 

For this week i’ve chosen  “Shake It Off” , the pop-debut single from superstar Taylor Swift. Yes! After 8 country-years our Taylor “shakes off” her country roots from her to produce a highly enjoyable , funny and cheerful single.

“Shake It Off” has been criticized for being like many other singles , pop singles, and a sad departure from her previous (way “meaningful”) efforts. To me IT WAS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED.

Swift released her very lucky 4th album “Red” in November 2012 and that album already shows off some pop-pier material (like all the singles released?) and this new chapter, called “1989” , is simply a natural step forward. In all of this i really hope she won’t completely forget her origins, cause Swift’s ballads are Amazing and very well written.

“Shake It Off” is about  shaking off prejudices and DON’T GIVE A FUCK about everything, cause people we’ll keep on saying things, criticizing everything and everyone , no matter how good you are.

The official video is nice and shows another time the clumsy side of Taylor Swift, thing that i love in a popstar.

“Shake it Off” in just about 3 weeks sold over 1 million copies in USA (#1).

*TESTO / LYRICS*

I stay up too late, got nothing in my brain
That’s what people say mmm, that’s what people say mm
I go on too many dates, but I can’t make ’em stay
At least that’s what people say mmm, that’s what people say mmm

But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music in my body and it’s gonna be alright

‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I’ll never miss a beat, I’m lightning on my feet
And that’s what they don’t see mmm, that’s what they don’t see mmm
I’m dancing on my own (dancing on my own), I’ll make the moves up as I go (moves up as I go)
And that’s what they don’t know mmm, that’s what they don’t know mmm

But I keep cruising, can’t stop, won’t stop grooving
It’s like I got this music in my body saying it’s gonna be alright

‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off

Hey, hey, hey, just think while you’ve been getting down and out about the liars and dirty, dirty cheats in the world you could have been getting down to this sick beat

My ex-man brought his new girlfriend
She’s like “oh my God”, but I’m just gonna shake it
And to the fella over there with the hella good hair
Won’t you come on over, baby, we can shake, shake, shake

‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake, fake, fake
Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake
I shake it off, I shake it off

I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
I, I shake it off, I shake it off
