Noi siamo gli asini

Volevo solo suggerire e segnalare che, a proposito di pazzia e lotta dei manicomi, c'è una canzone molto bella che non può assolutamente non essere ricordata: si intitola "Sul nido del cuculo" ed è tratta dall'omonimo disco di Mario Castelnuovo, del 1988; si tratta della storia d'amore tra due pazienti di un manicomio, un amore contrastato dall'ipocrisia della società: ci sono dei passaggi davvero molto intensi e struggenti... (il video si trova su YouTube)
Il titolo è un ovvio riferimento al film "Qualcuno volò sul nido del cuculo", di Milos Forman (1976, se non sbaglio), ispirato a sua volta dall'omonimo romanzo di Ken Kesey

Manifiesto

...ed infatti sei morto cantando parole vere, di vera libertà... mentre quei maiali ti torturavano, ti deridevano e ti uccidevano...

...Victor, la tua voce risuonerà in eterno, la tua sarà sempre una canzone nuova, una canzone immortale... rivivrà nel cuore del tuo popolo, di ogni popolo del mondo che cerca la libertà...

Hasta Siempre Victor...

Workin' In the Foondry

[2000]
Lyrics and music Stuart Simpson
Album: The Bo'ness Ballads [2005]

"With The big Foondry Chorus. A somewhat humorous look at Victorian working conditions. Acoustic Guitar and banjo. In the Scottish Folk style, I think!

The song deals with conditions for Iron Foundry (Foondry) workers from 1850 to the 1950s, where jobs were almost hereditary, passed from father to son, and housing was owned by the foundry owners. Inspired in part by my uncle Ian, who worked there for all his working life. "

Lise Altmann

[1978]
Testo e musica: Daniel Balavoine
Paroles et musique: Daniel Balavoine



Sans doute, portait-elle l'étoile jaune... et lui, un triangle (le père) rouge... Il y a des époques comme çà... Faites attention... Des fois que ça recommencerait.

Ainsi parlaient Marco Valdo M.I. et Lucien Lane.

Così parlarono a suo tempo Marco Valdo e Lucien a proposito di questa canzone che ci riporta nella Francia occupata del 1943 o giù di lì. Nella Francia di Arrivederci ragazzi, insomma; ma l'arrivederci, anzi l'addio, lo davano anche i professori, non solo i ragazzi. Bastava avere un nome sbagliato. E non bisognava scrivere alla mamma per fare domande. Magari si veniva a sapere che anche il babbo...

Davvero uno strano tipo, Daniel Balavoine. Ad ascoltarla senza le parole sembra una canzonetta facile facile, il successino pt l'estate o qualcosa del genere. Su queste musichette, però, Balavoine cantava cose del genere. [RV]

Izieu

Ieri sera ho visto un gran bel film-documentario…
Il regista è Kevin Macdonald, quello di “Un giorno a settembre” (sul sequestro della delegazione israeliana da parte di un commando palestinese alle Olimpiadi di Monaco del 1972) e di “L’ultimo re di Scozia” (sul sanguinario dittatore ugandese Idi Amin Dada).
Il film di cui voglio parlarvi è del 2007 e si intitola “My Enemy's Enemy”, da noi “Il nemico del mio nemico - Cia, nazisti e guerra fredda”, e racconta la storia di Klaus Barbie.

Klaus Barbie (Bad Godesberg, Germania, 1913 –Lione, Francia, 1991), conosciuto come il “Boia di Lione”, fu il capo della Gestapo nella città francese durante l’occupazione nazista. Dotato di una personalità crudele, pervaso da un antisemitismo e anticomunismo viscerali, hitleriano integrale, durante la guerra Barbie fu responsabile di torture, esecuzioni sommarie, massacri, fucilazioni e deportazioni ai danni...

All Those People

[2001]
"A Blues for 9/11 ? Well, not only for that… This song was written after 9/11. It is a relatively simple peace song, mourning the deaths of innocent people. I wrote it after an argument, in which my attempts to say that the victims on 9/11 aren't the only innocents we should mourn was misinterpreted as "excusing terrorism". I thought a song might make my point more clearly.

A Rich Man's War (Ain't Gonna Fight)

[2002]

"Steve Earle has a song entitled Rich Man's War. This isn't it. Steve's song is a wonderful ballad. This is a protest song intended for people to get excited about. It worked. I also hoped people would sing it so I wrote it to be a folk song. That's a song the folk can sing and play. Well, you decide if it's that.

The truth is that this song started out as a poem. It was been published as a part of the Poets Against the War Anthology and subsequently by the Indie Journal, the Web Poetry Corner, and others.

The editor of the Indie Journal called me a communist but published the poem and a related article anyway. We subsequently became good friends and I have contributed much poetry and many articles to their effort."

Tira Poc

Tira Poc
Canzone léviane – Tira Poc – Marco Valdo M.I. – 2009
Cycle du Cahier ligné – 69

Tira Poc est la soixante-neuvième chanson du Cycle du Cahier ligné, constitué d'éléments tirés du Quaderno a Cancelli de Carlo Levi.

Voici, mon ami Lucien l'âne si patient, un bien curieux titre pour une bien curieuse canzone. Si curieuse et si étrange, qu'il me faut t'entretenir un peu de son contenu. Ainsi qu'il est dit depuis le début de ce Cycle du Cahier Ligné, toutes ces canzones naissent au cœur d'un rêve, d'un songe, d'une méditation, enrobées de mystère et ce rêve, ce songe, ce mystère sont ceux d'un guerrier-blessé-prisonnier-enfermé et seraient pour lui, la seule manière de s'assurer qu'il vit encore et également, la seule manière de résister à une pression mortelle qui pèse sur lui. En outre, ce sont des canzones lévianes, c'est-à-dire qu'elles sont construites à partir et avec des éléments... (Continues)

Cielito de los muchachos

La poesia di Benedetti dalla raccolta “Letras de emergencia, 1969-1973 – Versos para cantar”, 1973, dedicata a Nacha Guevara e Alberto Favero.

CIELITO DE LOS MUCHACHOS

Están cambiando los tiempos
para bien o para mal
para mal o para bien
nada va a quedar igual

cielito cielo que sí
con muchachos donde quieran
mientras no haya libertad
se aplaza la primavera

se posterga para cuando
lleguen los años brutales
y del podrido poder
se bajen los carcamales

cielito cielo cielito
cielito a la descubierta
las botas del miedo pasan
por una calle desierta

viejos están y qué solos
qué ministros y qué viejos
tienen los pesos aquí
pero los dólares lejos

cielito cielo no importa
tienen miedo y es bastante
conocen que ya hace mucho
la historia sigue adelante

los tiempos están cambiando
están cambiando qué bueno
siempre el mundo será ancho
pero ya no será ajeno

Corporation Offenders

[2005]
Songwriters: Hyde & Ali Baba
Album: Status Quo

"Corporations attempt to unify what we wear, eat and even think. Corporations are given human rights, yet they don’t feel sympathy, compassion or concern, they don’t show you or the environment any love. There is only one thing they care about and that is to make money. They do this by any means necessary, for example Coka Cola has built its factories near Indian villages and privatized their freshwater. Nike, a brand most hip hop tick heads like to wear can only meet its demands by slave labor. The same with Starbucks and their supply of coffee beans through unfair trade, Halliburton, a major war mongering corporation that serves military needs. I could go on and on…."

Haven't We Learned

[2006]
Album: Hold On To Your Dreams

"Haven't We Learned' is essentially a song about American politics and the general condition of the USA . I have long considered the parallels between the United State and its excesses and the great Roman Empire. It is Rome's crumbling from within that I refer to in "Haven't we learned from those who've come before us".

There Goes the Neighborhood

[2006]
In early 2006, after the U.S. government threatened to pass harsher immigration laws, hundreds of thousands of workers, mostly immigrants, demonstrated for legalization across the country. Many of those who rallied were workers who are fighting to build a union. One sign at the march in Los Angeles said, "If you think I'm 'illegal' because I'm a Mexican, learn the true history, because I'm in my homeland." [please italicize "I’m"]

In Francia esistono 36000 monumenti ai morti in guerra e tra questi solamente 12 sono pacifisti. Se ne trova lista sul sito della Fédération Nationale de la Libre Pensée. Ecco cosa si trova iscritto nel marmo su quello di Saint-Martin-d'Estréaux

"Si vis pacem, para bellum ! ou si tu veux la paix prépare la guerre est une devise dangereuse. Si vis pacem, para pacem ! Si tu veux la paix prépare la paix doit être la formule de l'avenir. C'est à dire: Qu'il faut améliorer l'esprit des nations en améliorant celui des individus, par une instruction assainie et largement répandue. Il faut que le peuple sache lire et surtout comprendre la valeur de ce qu'il lit"

Dangerous Dreams

Album: Take Out

New York Times magazine couldn't understand why Palestinian children do what they do...
Well, that is not so difficult: they were being ethnically cleansed by the Zionist movement. People were force from their home, people were killed and homes were burned down, so the people fled in hope for a new and better live somewhere else (which most of them didn’t). Because of they would make it bigger it would lose it’s status as a refugee camp and would lose most of the support their getting from the UN and other organizations. If aid to the people would be stopped there would not be much hope for these people since they’re not educated, they don’t have money and don’t have any means to make a life for them selves. So the problem would only grow for these people.
