Vue des Deux Mondes

Vue des Deux Mondes
Canzone léviane – Vue des Deux Mondes – Marco Valdo M.I. – 2009
Cycle du Cahier ligné – 67

Vue des Deux Mondes est la soixante-septième chanson du Cycle du Cahier ligné, constitué d'éléments tirés du Quaderno a Cancelli de Carlo Levi.

Comme tu le vois, Lucien l'âne mon ami aux si belles oreilles, la canzone s'intitule « Vue des Deux Mondes » et de fait, elle est composée de deux parties distinctes qui présentent chacune un monde différent et les interactions entre ces mondes. Ce qui explique partiellement son titre. Comme tu le sais aussi, il existe en langue française une revue – celle-là – assez, comment dire, prestigieuse et assez réactionnaire... intitulée quant à elle « La revue des Deux Mondes ». C'est évidemment à elle, à cette revue de l'autre monde cette fois, du monde adverse, qu'il est ici fait allusion en quelque sorte par antiphrase. Mais rassure-toi,... (Continues)

When The Cotton Mill Women Rose

[2008]
Album: The Point of Pittsburgh

The story of the Cotton Mill Women of Pittsburgh who fought to end child labor and the 10 hour work day.

In the 1840’s cotton mills were the primary employers of Pittsburgh’s young women and children. Allegheny City, now the North side, was the location of seven cotton mills employing thousands of women and children. They toiled 12 hours a day 6 days a week repetitiously feeding the relentless and unforgiving spinning and weaving machines. Getting home from work at 10 at night their long days were endless toil for little pay. Women cotton mill workers were paid a mere $2.50 per week for 72 hours of work, while male laborers in other trades earned $1.00 per day. In response to pay cuts in 1843 the female cotton workers marched through the streets of Pittsburgh parading with a banner proclaiming “Two dollars a day and a plate of roast beef”. Their outspoken... (Continues)

Il testamento di Tito

ciao, la canzone il testamento di Tito, l'avevo inserita il qualche anno fa, e lavevo fatto perchè se la guerra è la fine della speranza, mentre Tito riesce, vedendo Cristo che muore senza aver fatto niente per meritarlo (come se ci fosse un motivo solo al mondo per uccidere) se non invocare l'amore tra gli uomini, a non perdere la speranza nella Vita, sta per morire e vedendo "quest'uomo che muore, Madre (la Vita) ho imparato l'Amore'. Pur nella sconfitta di una vita sbagliata la Speranza non lo lascia, la Speranza non di un paradiso effimero ma di un 'sentire' di pace che lo riconcilia (lui in punto di morte, giustiziato) con il mondo e con sè stesso.
Ho voluto dire la mia, forse buona, forse no, ma in una raccolta di canzoni contro la guerra la inserii per ricordarMi che la vera morte è la morte della Fede nella Vita, della Speranza.

Rachel Corrie

[2003]
Album: War and Resistance
Lyrics & music by: C. Michael Stout

Rachel Corrie a 23 year old college student from Olympia Washington, was murdered by a bulldozer driver on March 16, 2003 in Rafah Palestine. She stood in the path of an Israeli army bulldozer trying to prevent it from destroying a Palestinian home. Other non-violent international activists who witnessed the murder said the bulldozer driver was aware Rachel was there and intentionally destroyed the house and her. He dropped sand and heavy debris on her, then pushed her to the ground and drove over her. Rachel was in Gaza opposing the bulldozing of Palestinian homes as a volunteer with the International Solidarity Movement. In her emails to her parents before the incident she described the plight of hundreds of innocent families who homes and businesses have been bulldozed. Rachel's death, made the U.S. papers for...

Field Of Poppies

[2007]
Album: "Wars Will Cease...When We Refuse To Fight Them"
Lyrics by Dave Gwyther
Music by Dave Gwyther & Sturt Wills

On one Christmas day during World War 1 both sides put down their guns and met in No-Mans land. They shook hands and shared cigarettes and stories and played a game of football… The WW1 was a brutal bloody battle of dying empires that saw millions perish. And yet on one historic day two sides who had been locked in desperate fighting ceased their guns and met in no-mans land where they realised that they weren't German, or English, or anything like that. They realised that they were just men. All the same. And the war, and perhaps all wars could have ceased on that day with this monumental realisation, if the commanders had not ordered the men back into the trenches, threatening that if they did not go back to shooting each other, they would be shot themselves....

Apartheid

[2007]
Album: Wars Will Cease...When We Refuse To Fight Them
Lyrics by Dave Gwyther
Music by Dave Gwyther & Sturt Wills

The land of Israel, being the ancient land of Canaan before being conquered by Moses, and arguably being a Jewish territory before that, was promised by a withdrawing British Empire to be given to the native Arabs for their assistance in World War 2. However, the devastating holocaust lingering anti-Jewish resentment in Europe resulted in millions of displace Jews. The Allies needed to resettle them. Several places were suggested, including Africa, but the Jewish people were adamant that only the land of Israel would do. And thus in 1948, to the dismay of the local Arabs, the state of Israel was born. Today it remains a state of turmoil, where the Arab population is arguably treated as second class citizens. Their freedom of movement is restricted and what little land they have is taken away. This song is about the Apartheid here.

Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye

Anonymous
Come detto nell'introduzione, la melodia di "Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye" è stata poi utilizzata durante la guerra civile americana per la canzone patriottica "When Johnny Comes Marching Home"...

Molto meno patriottica la versione "natalizia" che circolava tra le truppe in Vietnam, della quale però ho trovato solo un frammento su Mudcat:

"When Johnny comes home in a plastic bag, Hurrah, Hurrah.
When Johnny comes home in a plastic bag, Hurrah, Hurrah.
When Johnny comes home in a plastic bag, We'll all turn out in the streets and gag
And we'll all be dead by Christmas time next year."

Chanson italienne – 7 – Casa del Vento - 2009

« L'Italie est une République démocratique fondée sur le travail »

Ainsi commence notre Constitution. Si on pense à ce qui se passe dans nos vies et dans la société, nous voyons tant de contradictions.
Cet album parle du travail, des conquêtes et des défaites du passé, des droits obtenus, mais aussi d'une régression de ces derniers dans l'actualité que nous vivons. On parle de sueur et d'exploitation des ouvrières, des ouvriers, des mineurs et des paysans, on y parle des migrants d'hier (les Italiens) et des migrants d'aujourd'hui, on y parle du manque de mémoire et de conscience endormie.
On y parle de jeunes chômeurs sans certitudes et sans espérances. De la honte des morts au travail, par milliers dans ce pays.
Avec force et tendresse, des histoires de notre terre, de celles d'Italie et du monde.
Car le monde entier est notre maison.

Cruzar los brazos

Errata:
a)"meses" (no "peces"... ¡los del servicio militar obligatorio!)
b) Concordar el verbo llamar a la tercera persona del plural: Ellos (te*) "llamen", y no "llame": Pues ellos son "los que siempre hacen las cosas por pelotas"
c) En varias versiones se encuentra "caldo" y no "jarro" espeso.

*O "me" pues después dice: Aquí estoy cautivo solo y desarmado (yo), pero VM lo canta también en "te" dirigiéndose a los jóvenes que tienen que hacer el servicio militar obligatorio.

Bombs and stray bullets fly. So many innocent civilians die. Stand up with me and claim - Not in our Name, Not in God's Name
Not In Our Name – In our names governments wage wars that maim and kill thousands of innocent civilians. If a child looses their life, it’s called collateral damage. Not in our name is a movement to halt the use of violence by governments. War brings more violence, not peace.

Chanson italienne – Gli Umani sono tornati- Alessio Lega – 2005

Une tentative pour intervenir en chanson dans les événements de Paris (en 2005), si lointaine et si proche. Il m'est venu une idée insolite (pour moi), une suggestion bowienne et scienfictionnesque.
L'histoire se déroule dans une maison à la limite entre ville et banlieue. Un robot à intelligence intégrée se retrouve en proie à un cauchemar (ou à la constatation certainement pas agréable) que sa machine brûle.

I Shall Be Released

"Non ce la faccio più", detenuto si suicida nel carcere di Palmi.
Il giudice l'aveva già scarcerato il giorno prima, ma nessuno gli aveva notificato il provvedimento.

I SHALL BE RELEASED...

Da La Stampa del 19 novembre 2009

Il provvedimento che lo autorizzava a uscire dal carcere di lì a tre giorni era già arrivato da più di 24 ore negli uffici della direzione, ma a lui si erano scordati di notificarlo. Così, Giovanni Lorusso, quarantunenne di Bari, detenuto da oltre un anno e disperato per il timore di dover far fronte all’ennesimo rifiuto di lasciarsi le sbarre alle spalle ed entrare in una comunità di recupero, non ha resistito alla prospettiva di restare dentro e si è tolto la vita con il gas del proprio fornellino all’interno della cella. Per lui la scarcerazione sarebbe stata la fine di un incubo: appena due settimane fa era stato trasferito infatti dal carcere di Ariano Irpino... (Continues)

Tambourinade sur le thème de la plus cruelle des guerres jamais déclarées, qui nous rend tous moins libres, imposant chaque jour son fardeau de victimes. C'est la mort au travail.

Tuer les autres, dit Marco Valdo M.I., ou les faire mourir de façon violente ou insidieuse doit être considéré comme un crime, comme un meurtre... Évidemment, on peut toujours incriminer la faute à pas de chance, le hasard, l'intervention du malin, que sais-je ? Mais dans le travail, il n'y a pas de hasard – ou alors, de façon tout-à-fait marginale quand la mort surgit alors que tout ce qui était possible a été fait en matière de précautions, de mesures de sécurité, de temps de repos, de conditions psychologiques ou physiologiques afin d'empêcher tout accident. Là, on peut vraiment parler d'accident et de coup du destin... Mais c'est... (Continues)
