    *ABOUT*

    ITALIANO

    Per questa settimana , ho scelto¬†“Lay Me Down” il terzo singolo tratto dal terzo album di Pixie Lott, che si chiamer√† proprio come il nome d’arte della cantante, che uscir√† 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), pi√Ļ EDM, a favore di uno stile pi√Ļ retro e genuino e, a mio parere, decisamente migliore e pi√Ļ sulle sue corde.

    Tra l’altro in “Lay Me Down” la splendida Pixie mostra la sua vocalit√† pi√Ļ 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 (sar√† 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”, ¬†sar√† disponibile dal 27 Luglio.

    Ricordo, o per chi non la conosce lo dico, che Pixie Lott (che non √® 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!

    SONG OF THE WEEK: EMELI SAND√Č “My Kind Of Love” [Numero 20] 

    Ventesimo‚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*

    “My Kind Of ¬†Love” √® il quarto singolo di Emeli Sand√®,estratto dal suo primo album “Our Version of Events”,disco di platino in UK per aver venduto oltre 300,000 copie (ora sulle 400,000).

    Il pezzo in questione √® un brano r’n’b/soul,come non se ne sentono piu molto spesso,dato che ormai l’elettronica divampa in ogni settore(dal rock,al metal,al pop,alla dance e appunto all’r’n’b,soul ed hip hop),ed √® il prescelto della settimana per la”Song Of the Week” anche per questa ragione.

    Sono cosi stufo della musica crossover che non appena inizio a sentire qualcosa di “genere”,ossia che non sia il solito mix multigenere ma che sia una canzone di un preciso genere,m’illumino e gli do automaticamente una chance in pi√Ļ e con questo pezzo,credetemi,non ho fatto fatica a pensare che fosse degno di nota.

    “My Kind Of Love”,come ha ammesso la stessa Emeli,√® uno di quei brani del suo album che ha scritto col puro intento di dare un qualcosa di universalmente raggiungibile ai suoi ascoltatori. Il pezzo parla di famiglia,di amore incondizionato e di“quel tipo di amore” (traduzione quasi letterale del pezzo) che solo le persone a te pi√Ļ vicine possono darti nei momenti in cui gli amici spariscono e la gente che ti conosce meno si ritrae e lascia spazio al vuoto.

    Tutti sappiamo,generalmente,che la solitudine √® una fase che tutti passiamo,e c’√® chi la passa piu volte e per piu tempo rispetto ad altri,ma Emeli vuol insistere sul fatto che ci sar√† comunque almeno una persona”speciale”al tuo fianco,qualcuno che ti sappia amare al di la’ della fisicit√†,ma proprio come essere umano,come presenza.

    Il pezzo è scritto da  Emeli Sandé, Emile Haynie e Danny Keyz mentre la produzione del brano è di Tannenbaum,Craze & Hoax e di nuovo  Haynie e Danny Keyz.

    Il pezzo √® da poco che √® stato messo in vendita su ITunes e lo trovate,appunto, contenuto in”Our Version of Events”.

    *IL TESTO*

    I can’t buy your love, don’t even wanna try¬†
    sometimes the truth won’t make you happy¬†
    so i’m not gonna lie¬†
    but don’t ever question that my heart beat¬ö only for you¬†
    it beats only for you¬†i know i’m far from perfect¬†
    nothing like your entourage 
    i can’t grant you any wishes¬†
    i can’t promise you the stars¬†
    but don’t ever question that my heart beats only for you¬†
    it beats only for you 

    cause when you give it up 
    no mater what you do it’s never good enough¬†
    when you never thought 
    that it could ever get this tough 
    that’s when you feel my kind of love¬†

    and when you’re high enough¬†
    when you fall and then can’t lift¬†
    you’re heavy on the ground¬†
    when the friends you thought you had 
    haven’t stuck around¬†
    that’s¬ö when you feel my kind of love¬†

    you won’t see me at the parties¬†
    i guess i’m just no fun¬†
    i won’t be turning up the radio¬†
    singing baby you’re the one¬†
    but don’t ever question that my heart beats only for you¬†
    it beats only for you 

    i know sometimes i get angry and i ¬ösay what i don’t mean¬†
    i know i keep my heart protected far away from my sleeve 
    but don’t ever question that my heart beats only for you¬†
    it beats only for you 

    cause when you give it up 
    no mater what you do it’s never good enough¬†
    when you never thought 
    that it could ever get this though 
    that’s when you feel my kind of love¬†

    and when you’re high enough¬†
    when you fall and then can’t lift¬†
    you’re heavy on the ground¬†
    when the friends you thought you had 
    haven’t stuck around¬†
    that’s when you feel my kind of love¬†

    and when you give it up 
    and no matter what you do is never good enough 
    when you never thought that it cold ever get this though 
    that’s when you feel my kind of love¬†

    and when you’re high enough¬†
    when you fall and then can’t lift¬†
    you’re heavy on the ground¬†
    when the friends you thought you had 
    haven’t ¬ötuck around¬†
    that’s when you feel my kind of love¬†

    and when you’re high enough¬†
    when you’re fallen and then can’t lift¬†
    you’re heavy on the ground¬†
    when the friends you thought you had 
    haven’t stuck around¬†
    that’s when you feel my kind of love
