Io sono una vera fan di Renaud, per quanto lo si possa essere dall'Italia.
Bella sorpresa anche per me ritrovare "visage pale" citato su un sito Italiano.

Chiedo scusa, ma credo che l'mp3 che ho appena postato non si riferisca ad una versione cantata da Fabrizio De André, bensì da Alberto Napolitano dei "Buonenuove"... mi ha tratto in inganno la voce piuttosto simile a quella (ineguagliabile) di Fabrizio...

Tutto è finito, la morte è ormai decisa

Anonymous
Canzone legata alla vicenda di Sacco e Vanzetti, segnalataci dall'instancabile Alessandro, che la ricorda cantata dalla sua nonna paterna. Sembra che il testo non sia completo e manca il titolo (scegliamo quindi, secondo l'uso corrente, di utilizzare come titolo il primo verso).

Della canzone si parla in un articolo di Lele Odiardo su "Umanità Nova" (n. 28 dell'8 settembre 2002):

Nonostante il fascismo, le vicende di Sacco e Vanzetti entrano nell'immaginario popolare e suscitano una spontanea solidarietà ...

In quegli anni le notizie arrivavano, ancor prima che attraverso i giornali, con i cantastorie che si esibivano nelle piazze i giorni di festa e di mercato. L'indimenticato Tavio Cosio in un suo scritto riporta il testo di una canzone diffusa all'epoca.

Ricorda ancora il farmacista villafallettese: "La canzone in questione non ricordo se sia stata scritta nel 1927 o nel 1928, ma... (Continues)

Love Of An Unknown Soldier

[April 2004]
Lyrics and music by David Rovics
From the album, or song collection, "For the moment"
David Rovics' Official Website


"For a beautiful Salvadoran woman I saw in a photo on the cover of the New York Times. I was sitting in a café in Seattle in November, 1989, while she was trying to overthrow the US-backed fascists in El Salvador. Standing majestically on a rooftop in San Salvador, dressed in fatigues and an AK. Too bad those SAM's got intercepted en route from Nicaragua." -David Rovics.

April, 2005

I had a great show a while back in Olympia, Washington and met Pat Maley there. I was recording a few new songs at his studio to put on the web, and at some point he suggested that I put out my next CD on his label, Yoyo Records. Thinking that to be a great idea, I went about figuring out what I wanted to do about that, and this is the end result.

Lysistrata's War

Music by Mark D. Williams
Lyrics by David Hamilton

An original Rock Opera by
David Hamilton and Mark D. Williams
Adapted from Aristophanes’ Lysistrata

Official Website

Libretto

Aristophanes' anti-war comedy Lysistrata, written in 411 BC, has female characters, led by the eponymous Lysistrata, barricading the public funds building and withholding consensual sex from their husbands to secure peace and end the Peloponnesian War. In doing so, Lysistrata engages the support of women from Sparta, Boeotia, and Corinth. All of them are at first aghast at the suggestion of withholding sex, but they finally agree and swear an oath to support each other. The woman from Sparta, Lampito, returns home to spread the word there.

The play also addresses the contribution that women could make to society and to policy making, but cannot because their views are ignored: All such questions are considered... (Continues)

In The Spirit

"So this song is my first anti-war song. This song is basically about the war and how it sucks and all that kind of stuff, but it's also about keeping a good attitude about how we have to change things and basically, kind of, rebuild our entire country from the ground up. From square one. And trying to keep a good attitude about it, 'cause there's a lot of work to do. But if we stay in a good mood and have a good time doing it then we have a better chance of pulling it off."

How Far Is It From Here To Nuremberg?

[2005]
Halliburton Boardroom Massacre

Here are fifteen songs I wrote between January and July,
2005. I recorded them at Sugar Hill in Houston with John Griffin on the board on the afternoon of July 28th. I guess there's another bunch of songs here which are continuing the ecological theme that was heavily represented in Beyond the Mall (and to one degree or another in all of my other recordings). Some of the songs are definitely inspired by the musical sensibilies of TV Smith ("Crashing Down," "Boardroom," "Before the Oil Wells Run Dry," "Waiting For The Fall"). I don't know if any of these songs approach TV's brilliance at writing stuff with great universality to it, nor whether the melodies are as catchy as his, but in any case, his music has been a focus for my own songwriting over the past couple months.

Apparently, tens of thousands of men from Jordan were volunteering for the Iraqi armed forces, wanting to serve the cause of anti-imperialism. In the section of the application forms where they were asked of their qualifications for serving in the military, thousands replied with only one word: "martyr."- David Rovics.

Luis Posada Carriles è un noto terrorista. Meno noto di Bin Laden ma con un curriculum di tutto rispetto e sicuramente con più esperienza sul campo.

Collaboratore del regime cubano di Batista, passò, dopo la rivoluzione dei barbutos e il conseguente crollo del dittatore cubano, alle dipendenze della CIA e dei poteri forti statunitensi. Di lui si sà con certezza - è reo confesso di molti reati, omicidi e attentati - che operò per anni in vari stati del sud america tessendo,... (Continues)
