Ballad Of John MacLean

John MacLean was a Scottish schoolteacher ("Dominie" in Scots) and Marxist educator who was sentenced to two years' imprisonment in 1918 for agitating against the carnage of World War 1. Due to popular outrage and demonstrations, he was released after 7 months but the harsh treatment he received in prison seriously damaged his health and he died a few years later.

La canzone è stata interpretata anche da Dick Gaughan.

Santiago

De ce côté-ci d'Eboli, le pape est une des icônes de notre temps. Monsieur Tout Blanc, c'est un peu le Tintin du Ciel, audacieux voyageur et redresseur de torts, bonne âme inoxydable. Tout comme il y eut Tintin en Amérique, Tintin au pays des Soviets, Tintin au Tibet (moins politiquement correct, celui-là – à présent, il faudrait l'intituler Tintin en Chine : commerce oblige !) et l'inoubliable Tintin au Congo (plein de racisme et de bandes dessinées), nous avons eu droit à Monsieur Tout Blanc en Amérique, Monsieur Tout Blanc en Afrique... depuis, il y aurait, paraît-il, un Monsieur Tout Blanc au Paradis (Santo subito ! Santo Subito !), mais je ne l'ai pas vu.

En 1987, il y eut – dans ce cas, la chose est certaine, un Monsieur Tout Blanc à Santiago, lorsque Monsieur Tout Blanc s'en alla saluer un général de ses amis, l'Augustissime Pinochet.

Hey Sandy

"Hey Sandy on the album 'Writer of Songs' (1972) is another description of the senseless loss of a young life in conflict. It is based on the death of a female student, Sandra Scheuer, who was shot by the Ohio National Guard at the Kent State University in the U.S. anti Vietnam War demonstration of 1970, although, unlike the Sandy of Andrews' song, the real student was not directly involved in the demonstration. The album version of the song is an unusual, but powerful, arrangement, in which the first verse is sung to the accompaniment of a solo double bass, played by Danny Thompson. The recording was never issued in the USA until Kent State University's commemorative CD was released in 2005. It reached number 2 in the New Zealand chart in November 1972.

Brother Where You Bound

Dall'album omonimo del 1985 vi invio questa canzone; leggo nel sito allmusic che «the fantastic title track examines Cold War paranoia and clocks in at more than 16 minutes; after the creepy opening narration taken from George Orwell's 1984, the song becomes a composite of several complex prog-rock "movements." Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour contributes the searing, distorted guitar solos.»

Canzone per Silvia

Silvia, la Silvia de la chanson, c'est Silvia Baraldini.
Elle fut arrêtée en emprisonnée aux Zétazunis en 1982 pour sa participation à la lutte pour les droits civiques des Noirs. On la condamna à 43 ans de prison.
Le FBI ( comme le faisaient les polices fascistes...) a plusieurs offert à Silvia Baraldini de l'argent en échange de dénonciations. Pour avoir refusé, sa peine fut augmentée de trois ans.

Elle fut enfermée au pénitencier de Lexington où elle fut soumise à un régime carcéral d'isolement, de fouilles corporelles, de censure de la poste, de limitations des visites et de contrôle de tous les instants, y compris les plus intimes. Une « Achtung Banditen ! » en quelque sorte !

Silvia malade d'une tumeur dut être opérée, enchaînée sur la table.
La prison de Lexington fut fermée après la dénonciation des conditions par Amnesty International.
Silvia fut transférée au quartier de... (Continues)

A Silvia

Chanson italienne – A Silvia -Alfreedo Bandelli – fin des années 1980

Alfredo Bandelli a longtemps chanté cette chanson; jusqu'à tant qu'il a pu chanter. Dans le répertoire de Bandelli, elle a une chanson-sœur (Bella Bimba – La belle fille sans nom), qui l'a sans doute précédée. [ Je ne sais si tu es au courant , disait Luciano Filippi – Gildo dei Fantardi à Riccardo Venturi, que cette chanson était d'abord intitulée Bella bimba et elle n'avait rien à voir avec Silvia Baraldini. Quand suurvint l'affaire, Alfredo Bandelli utilisa la mélodie de Bella Bimba et ne fit cette splendide composition.], Celle-ci « A Silvia » est consacrée à Silvia Baraldini, une militante pacifiste et anti-raciste italienne qui arrêtée en 1982, fut condamnée à 43 ans de prison et qui fut emprisonnée des années aux Zétazunis en raison de son engagement dans la lutte pour les droits civiques des Noirs.

Bella bimba

Chanson italienne – Bella bimba – Alfredo Bandelli – 1988

Alfredo Bandelli a longtemps chanté cette chanson; jusqu'à tant qu'il a pu chanter. Il lui a donné une chanson-sœur qu'il a consacrée à Silvia Baraldini, une militante pacifiste et anti-raciste italienne qui arrêtée en 1982, fut condamnée à 43 ans de prison et qui fut emprisonnée des années aux Zétazunis en raison de son engagement dans la lutte pour les droits civiques des Noirs. Puis en Italie, après son extradition en 1999; elle n'en sortit qu'en 2001.
Ce phénomène des chansons-sœurs n'est pas fréquent et mérite qu'on s'y arrête un instant pour en définir les limites. En l'occurrence, il s'agit d'une même musique et d'un texte presque semblable; en somme, une variante. Dans la chanson française, on peut citer « Carcassonne » et « Le nombril des femmes d'agents »... chansons de Georges Brassens ou encore, chez le même Brassens,... (Continues)
