    SONG OF THE WEEK : KIESZA “Hideaway” [Numero 104] 

    Centoquattresimo¬†‚ÄĚnumero‚ÄĚ 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.

    *ABOUT*

    ITALIANO

    Per questa settimana ho scelto¬†“Hideaway” , il brano della giovane Canadese Kiesza.

    Lei e il suo produttore, grandi amanti della dance anni ’90, hanno deciso di fondere la deep house e la minimal elettronica con le atmosfere circa 1993/1994 in una canzone decisamente interessante e davvero innovativa per quanto retr√≤.¬† Il risultato √® stato un successo: il singolo ,appena uscito, √® balzato al #1 in UK con oltre 136,000 copie vendute e Youtube conta oltre 10,6 milioni di visualizzazioni!

    Il video è molto urban, una coreografia che scaturisce durante una semplice camminata, con un look a metà strada fra innovazione e retrò , esattamente come il brano che rappresenta.

    Come il pezzo parla di una scappatoia, di una persona che riesce a far fluttuare, questo pezzo √® un piacere per le orecchie, che ti porta in un’altra dimensione. Presumo spunteranno fuori numerosi remix che lo trasformeranno ulteriormente in una club hit.

    Il singolo contiene l’altro brano “No Enemiesz” e la cover dell’epica “What is Love” di Haddaway , uno degli inni dance anni ’90 in assoluto.

     

    INGLESE

    This week i’ve chosen “Hideaway” , debut single from Canadian artist Kiesza.

    She and her producer , big lovers of the 90s dance music ( WHO DOESN’T?? ) , have decided to merge deep house and minimal electro music into the atmospheres of dance music around 1993/1994 , in a very interesting song and innovative, even if retro.

    The result is a success: over 136.000 copies sold in first week to top the UK singles chart and over 10,6 views on Youtube as of now.

    Videoclip is urban, with a choreography that comes naturally from a walk , with a look halfway between retro and innovation , exactly as the song is in itself.

    As the lyrics speak about a”hideaway”, of someone who can give us this sensation , free our mind and make us walk in the clouds, the song is able to do the same thing, taking us to another dimension. I bet many remixes will soon be released and will give further strenght to this tune to make it a bigger club hit, all over the world.

    The single includes another song, “No Enemiesz” and a cover of the epic “What is Love” , one of the biggest dance songs of the 90s owned by Haddaway.

    *TESTO / LYRICS*

    Taking me higher than I’ve ever been before
    I’m holding it back, just want to shout out, give me more
    You’re just a hideaway
    You’re just a feeling
    You let my heart escape
    Beyond the meaning
    Not even I can’t find a way to stop the storm
    Oh baby, it’s out of my control
    It’s going home
    But you’re just a chance I take
    To keep on dreaming
    You’re just another day
    That keeps me breathing

    Baby, I love the way that there’s nothing sure
    Baby, don’t stop me
    Hideaway with me some more
    Hideaway with me some more

    You send me the shiver and the spine that might overflow
    You’re bringing me closer to the edge
    I’m letting go
    You’re just a hideaway
    You’re just a feeling
    You let my heart escape
    Beyond the meaning
    Putting my head into the clouds
    I’m floating home
    When you can be going I can’t find a way to stop
    You’re just a chance I take
    To keep on dreaming
    You’re just another day that keeps me breathing

    Baby, I love the way that there’s nothing sure
    Baby, don’t stop me
    Hideaway with me some more

    Bringing me high up where I’ve ever been before
    I’m holding it back, just want to shout it, give me more
    You’re just a hideaway
    You’re just a feeling
    You let my heart escape
    Beyond the meaning
    Not even I can’t find a way to stop the storm
    Oh baby, its out of my control what’s going on
    You’re just a chance I take
    To keep on dreaming
    You’re just another day, that keeps me breathing
    You’re a day that keeps me dreaming

    Baby, I love the way that there’s nothing sure
    Baby, don’t stop me
    Hideaway with me some more
    Hideaway with me some more

    SONG OF THE WEEK : TEGAN AND SARA “Goodbye Goodbye” [Numero 79] 

    Settantonovesimo ‚ÄĚnumero‚ÄĚ 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 √® da buttare,e spero che con questa rubrica lo possa dimostrare.

    *ABOUT*

    ITALIANO

    Per questa settimana ho scelto “Goodbye Goodbye” il nuovo singolo del duo canadese indie pop rock Tegan and Sara , tratto dal loro settimo album di studio “Heartthrob”, con all’attivo¬†oltre¬†150,000 copie vendute in USA , dove ha raggiunto il numero 3.

    HEARTTHROB

    Il brano √® uno dei miei preferiti del disco ed anche uno dei miei preferiti in assoluto del duo, che album dopo album si sta sempre pi√Ļ raffinando nel sound e nelle lyrics. In particolare , “Goodbye Goodbye” √® un brano synthpop davvero irresistibile e unico nel suo genere , altamente riconoscibile nelle corde del duo.

    tegan-and-sara-456-011513

    ll pezzo , come viene anche riportato nel videoclip ufficiale , racconta vari tipi di chiusure di rapporti sentimentali e di “addii” , appunto.

    Tegan-Sara

    Il singolo segue l’uscita di “Closer” e del fantastico “I Was a Fool” (che gi√† suggerii come SONG OF THE WEEK svariati mesi fa) ed √® disponibile come singolo dal 17 Settembre. Non perdetevelo!

    ENGLISH

    This week i’ve chosen “Goodbye Goodbye” the newest single from Canadian indie rock synthpop duo Tegan and Sara , taken from their seventh album “Heartthrob”, which reached number 3 on the Billboard 200 and sold more than 150,000 copies.

    tegan-and-sara-1-w724

    The song is one of my favourite in the album and of my faves ever from the duo , active since the mid 90s, and represents in a good way their constant improvement in sounds and lyrics , and look style too. “Goodbye Goodbye”¬†is a synthpop song highly recognizable as Tegan and Sara ‘s production.

    tegan-and-sara-4ddb058097019

    The song , like its official video , deals with different types of “goodbyes” in love relationships .

    The single follows “Closer” and the great “I Was a Fool” ( which i’ve already chosen several months ago in this SONG OF THE WEEK section )¬†and it’s available as a single since September 17. Go and buy it, you won’t regret it.¬†

    *TESTO / LYRICS*

     Goodbye
    I don’t wanna
    Feel the need
    To hear your voice

    Goodbye
    I don’t wanna
    Feel the need
    To see your face

    I can’t live with
    All these things I would say
    I can’t live with
    All these things that I say

    Goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye
    Like the first time

    Goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye
    Like the first time

    You never really knew me
    Never ever, never ever saw me
    Saw me like they did

    You never really loved me
    Never really, never really loved me
    Loved me like they did

    With some time
    I might wanna
    See the way
    That you changed

    With some time
    I might wanna
    See how you’ve been
    What you cannot blame

    I can’t stand it
    All these things I forego
    I can’t stand it
    All these things I’ve let got

    Goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye
    Like the first time

    Goodbye, goodbye
    Goodbye, goodbye
    Like the first time

    You never really knew me
    Never ever, never ever saw me
    Saw me like they did

    You never really loved me
    Never really, never really loved me
    Loved me like they did

    You coulda told me
    Goodbye
    You coulda told me
    Goodbye

    You let me try
    Knowing there was nothing I could do
    To change you

    You coulda warned me
    Knowing there was nothing I could do
    To change you

    You never really knew me
    Never ever, never ever saw me
    Saw me like they did

    You never really loved me
    Never really, never really loved me
    Loved me like they did

    SONG OF THE WEEK: TEGAN AND SARA “I Was a Fool” [Numero 55] 

    Cinquantacinquesimo¬†‚ÄĚnumero‚ÄĚ 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 √® da buttare,e spero che con questa rubrica lo possa dimostrare.

    *ABOUT*

    ITALIAN:

    Per questa settimana ho scelto “I Was a Fool” del duo indie rock pop di Tegan e Sara, gemelle identiche canadesi, che sono ormai nella music industry dal lontano 1995.

    Tegan-Sara

    Il brano √® incluso nel loro settimo album “Heartthrob”, uscito un paio di settimane fa,che ha gi√† conquistato la 3^posizione della Billboard 200, con quasi 50,000 copie vendute nei primi 7 giorni.

    HEARTTHROB

    In realt√† il singolo apripista √® la pi√Ļ electro indie “Closer”, altro bel pezzo, ma la mia attenzione si √® da subito focalizzata su questa stupenda ballata, magistrale, “I Was a Fool”, sinceramente la perla di questo settimo lavoro delle ragazze canadesi.

    tegan-and-sara-456-011513

    Il testo parla di come una persona innamorata riesca sempre a perdonare chi ama, salvandolo pi√Ļ e pi√Ļ volte da stesso, e proprio per questa naturale propensione a farsi”in quattro” per questa persona si finisce “stupidi”, si perdono di vista i propri obiettivi e viene tutto ridotto all’attesa snervante di una chiamata, di un messaggio, di un segno dell’altro.

    tegan-and-sara-2-w352

    Il piano, le voci, l’intensit√† melodica del brano lo rendono davvero senza tempo e consiglio a chiunque di ascoltarlo e farlo proprio, perch√© √® proprio uno di quei rari brani che possono parlare a tutti indistintamente senza essere, per√≤, banali e generici, bens√¨ indimenticabili e che lasciano il segno.

    Spero vivamente che “I Was a Fool” sar√† scelto come loro secondo estratto o terzo, perch√© merita davvero di essere maggiormente conosciuta e apprezzata.

    tegan-and-sara-4ddb058097019

    ENGLISH:

    This week i’ve chosen “I Was¬† A Fool”, of Canadian indie pop rock’s duo Tegan & Sara, identical twin sisters who are around in the music industry since 1995, for those who didn’t know.

    The tune is included in their seventh studio album, “Heartthrob”, released a couple of weeks ago and peaked at number 3 in USA, with around 50,000 copies sold in the first 7 days, very good result for indie artists.

    The first single of this new album is “Closer”, electro indie tune, but my attentions is focused on this “I Was a Fool”, magistral ballad, that i consider the highlight of the album by far.

    730142-tegan-and-sara

    The lyrics are about a person in love who always forgives his beloved one, saving him multiple times from itself, and is this natural strenght to give ourselves completely to the ones we love that, at the same time, makes us “stupid” “fool”, and we lose sight of our priorities, sometimes dignity, and it all comes down to a single call, a message, a sign we desperately look for when there are troubles in a couple or ewhen verything is about to crash.

    Piano, voices and melody of this song are really timeless and i suggest everyone to listen to it cause everyone can really relate to it, and the cool thing is that this is of the rare songs who can appeal to everyone without being too much commercial, dull or too simple. This tune is impressive and will stand the test of time, in my opinion.

    I really hope “I Was a Fool” will be chosen as a single, don’t mind if the second or third, because this really deserves to be heard from a wider audience than the fans who have bought or will buy this interesting album.

    tegan-and-sara-1-w724

    *TESTO*

    Do you remember I searched you out How I climbed your city‚Äôs walls Do you remember me as devout How I prayed for your calls I stood still, it’s what I did Love like ours just never fits I stuck around I did behave I saved you every time I was a fool for love I was a fool for love I was a fool [x2] Then you blame me and block me out How long did you think I‚Äôd last Then you disappeared for weeks to pout How many times could I pack But stand still, it’s all I did Love like ours just never fits Still I stuck around I did behave I saved you every time I was a fool for love I was a fool for love I was a fool [x2] If you‚Äôre worried that I might’ve changed Left behind all of my foolish ways You best be looking for somebody else Without a foolish heart A foolish heart But stand still is all we did Love like ours just never fits I stuck around I did behave I saved you every time I was a fool for love I was a fool for love I was a fool [x5]

    SONG OF THE WEEK: NELLY FURTARDO”Waiting For The Night” [Numero 52] 

    Cinquaduesimo¬†‚ÄĚnumero‚ÄĚ 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 √® da buttare,e spero che con questa rubrica lo possa dimostrare.

    *ABOUT*

    ITALIAN:

    Non √® decisamente il periodo di Nelly Furtado, e le vendite dell’ultimo album “The Spirit Indestructible” ne sono la prova lampante (ha raggiunto solo il #79 in USA e #46 in UK!), ma ci√† non vuol dire che la donna abbia meno da offrire o che le canzoni siano necessariamente brutte¬†o dimenticabili, anzi.

    Nelly_Furtado_-_The_Spirit_Indestructible_(Standard_Edition)

    √Č il caso di “Waiting for the Night”, una delle¬†highlight di questo quarto album di studio in inglese della Furtado.

    Nelly-Furtado-Waiting-for-the-Night-2012-LQ

    Un pezzo avvolgente, ipnotico, pop, ma anche profondo, intenso, anche un po’ dark ed etnico allo stesso tempo, che √® sicuramente reminescente della Nelly Furtado che tutti conosciamo ma senza assomigliare direttamente a nessun suo pezzo passato, pi√Ļ che altro √® un miscuglio (positivo ed innovativo) di ci√≤ che l’ha resa famosa.

    Nelly_Furtado-2012

    Un mix che funziona, e nessun posizionamento in classifica basso o alto potrà cambiare il fascino di questo brano, per la mia modesta opinione.

    Questo brano, come molti altri del disco, ha come leit motiv (tema ricorrente) la nostalgia, quindi una rivisitazione del passato in chiave “fresca e colorata”. Nelly ha inoltre ammesso che in questo album ci sono brani che rappresentano una forte crescita come songwriter, anche a livello d’importanza che ogni testo ha per lei, e sicuramente “Waiting for the Night” √® fra quelli.

    nelly-furtado-2012-billboard-music-awards-01

    Il singolo √® il terzo estratto per il mercato europeo ed √® stato pubblicazzato particolarmente in Germania, uno dei (pochi) luoghi dove la Furtado √® ancora molto seguita ed apprezzata, infatti li l’ultimo disco ha raggiunto la posizione #3.

    Nelly_Furtado_2012

    ENGLISH:

    It’s not really Nelly Furtado’s moment, unfortunately, considering the underwhelming performance of her last¬†studio album¬†√® “The Spirit Indestructible” (#79 in USA¬†, #46 UK!), but this doesn’t mean she has less to offer or that her music has turned into bad or forgettable.

    This is the case of¬†¬†“Waiting for the Night”, one of the highlights of¬†Nelly’s 4th english language¬†studio album.

    Hypnotic, pop, deep tune with a dark and ethnic twist too, certainly reminescent of that Nelly Furtado we all know and all the world has appreciated (her first 3 albums sold millions of copies, especially the first and the second one) but without being too similar to any other track released in the past. It’s some kind of a mixture (positive) of what made her famous.

    A cocktail that works, and no chart position could ever ruin the charm of it, in my opinion.

    This song, like many others in her newest album, have “nostalgia” has leit motiv, as well as a revisitation of her past roots in a more fresh and colourful way. Nelly admitted, moreover, that these new songs represent a considerable growth as a songwriter and they have a lot of importance for herself as a person, and “Waiting for the Night” is sure among the list of her new favourites.

    The tune is the third single to be taken from the album for the european Language and is now promoted particularly in Germany, one of the places where Nelly still has loads of fans and people to buy her music, in fact her last album was a moderate success there, charting at number 3. 

    Nelly-Furtado-1

    *TESTO*

    Baby I know you’re outside
    In here it’s warm and dry
    Got feelings that I’ve got to try expressing
    Like a language that I share with you
    Let’s talk in the special way we do
    Don’t want to be anywhere else but here with you
    Feels so good

    Day and night, day and night
    You blow my mind, blow my mind
    And I can’t help, help myself at all
    I can’t hold back
    Day and night, day and night
    You blow my mind, blow my mind
    And I can’t help, help myself from falling
    So I’m waiting for the night

    Baby I know it’s late
    We’ve got decisions to make
    Think of what we could create together
    And with you I am never afraid
    To play with the highest stakes
    Nobody could break my rapture

    Day and night, day and night
    You blow my mind, blow my mind
    And I can’t help, help myself at all
    I can’t hold back
    Day and night, day and night
    You blow my mind, blow my mind
    And I can’t help, help myself from falling
    [ From: http://www.elyrics.net  ]
    So I’m waiting for the night

    I can’t control it in the night, night, night
    It’s when I’ve got you on my mind, mind, mind
    Cuz you’re the twinkle in my eye, eye, eye
    I’ve got to get you in my life, life, life
    Can’t think of nothing worse than being lonely
    I think you’re the right choice for one and only
    We’re running out of time so baby hold me
    Days go by

    Day and night, day and night
    You blow my mind, blow my mind
    And I can’t help, help myself at all
    I can’t hold back
    Day and night, day and night
    You blow my mind, blow my mind
    And I can’t help, help myself from falling
    So I’m waiting for the night

    I’m waiting, I’m waiting, I’m waiting
    I’m waiting, I’m waiting, I’m waiting
    Waiting for the night
    Yeah, I really want to see you yeah
    I really want to see you tonight
    Don’t keep me waiting waiting, don’t keep me waiting for the night
