Kong Neneh Cherry


La cantante svedese qui diventa il diamante che salva in corner un prodotto già reiterato nonostante sia uscito da poche ore. Attenzione, non stiamo parlando dell’apporto vocale – ennesimo epigone di quanto fatto da Horace Andy o Elizabeth Fraser con i Massive Attack – ma ciò che qui importa è il significato della sua figura, inscindibile dal testo di Kong. “But love is big and every land/ Every nation seeks its friends in France and Italy/ And all across the seven seas“, canta Cherry, nata a Stoccolma da madre svedese e padre del Sierra Leone, per un testo in cui si grida l’urgenza dei migranti e della tragedia umanitaria dei respingimenti.
Rolling Stone
Love forsaken, risk worth taking
Spearmint flavors, all my palate shudders
I’m a member of shattered illusions
And am I needless to say?
Another song, this is nothing new

But love is big in every man
Every nation seeks its friends in France and Italy
And all across the seven seas
And Goddamn guns and guts and history
And bitter love still put a hole in me

Bite my head off, still my world will always be
A little risk worth taking
Bite my hand off, still my world will always be
Another risk worth taking

Gotta step out a limb, swallow my pride
Surrender, not give myself away
Little measures all the time
Become part of you, nothing new
Still half-full for absolutions
In my day there’s no solutions

And love is big in every land
Every nation seeks its friends in France and Italy
And all across the seven seas
And Goddamn guns and guts and history
And bitter love still put a put a hole in me

Bite my head off, still my world will always be
A little risk worth taking
Bite my hand off, still my world will always be
Another risk worth taking
