Beatles: A Day In The Life

Zheus.
Purtroppo non capisci ciò che è questa meravigliosa canzone.
Canzone fantastica dall'inizio alla fine; l'idea dell'orchestra, il pezzo centrale cantato da Paul, il testo scritto da John fantastico; mi fa pensare sempre all'incoscienza, all'impossibilità di vivere il proprio contesto storico perchè limitati da altri. Coglie in pieno l'essenza della Summer Of Love, non limitandosi solo alle droghe e al sesso ma scavando più a fondo. Tutto parte da due semplici notizie prese da un giornale: la prima è triste, parla di un incidente di un amico dei Beatles, la seconda è diversa, come un climax (figura retorica) riferisce il fatto della "conta" delle buche. Credo che i temi trattati siano splendidamente attuali.
La canzone, purtroppo, è conosciuta solamente dai veri fan, non da quelli che ascoltano ogni tanto i Beatles.
E' un vero patrimonio artistico, quando l'ascolti ti sembra quasi... (Continues)

Christians Throwing Stones

[2005]
Lyrics & Music by A-Bomb
Album: Christians Throwing Stones

Song about Christians doing what Christians do best.

"My drummer (a catholic) decided when he was drunk, to wear his ignorance where everyone could see and began bashing my belief system without knowing anything at all about the Wicca faith. He inspired this beauty and the A-Bomb solo CD that will bear the name".
They say that they are preaching love yet the Christians practice hate

When Johnny Comes Marching Home

[2006]
Lyrics by A-Bomb
Album: PEACE CRIMES

A parody of When Johnny Comes Marching Home, Southern (and national) anthem.
A song about what to expect when all those young soldiers come home from Bush's baked war.
We take kids, we train them to kill, send them off to get some practice and set them loose in the streets when they come home.
He's not the momma's little boy

Bigots Scaring Children

[2002]
Lyrics & Music by Pól Mac Adaim
Album: If We Don't Help Them Now

"This song touches on the Holy Cross situation and the fact that the children are the ones who pay the cost of war.
After witnessing the appalling pictures shown on television of little girls screaming and grasping to their parents while pipes bombs exploded alongside bottles and balloons filled with urine landing around them. I thought making a record of this in song would accompany the suffering those children will endure on a daily basis for a long time to come…"
Let our children go to school, you've broken every human rule

Secondo me è comunque contro la guerra visto che si scaglia contro il problema del narcotraffico, che sta sempre più assumendo i caratteri di un conflitto vero e proprio. I paesi industrializzati producono armi e le vendono poi ai narcotrafficanti che così possono mantenere il loro 'impero'.

Anthem for Doomed Youth

[1917]
Da “Human Conflict Number Five” (1981), EP di debutto della band all’epoca capitanata da Natalie Merchant.
Testo di Wilfred Owen
Musica di John Lombardo.

Il testo è quello di una celebre poesia di Wilfred Owen, soldato e poeta britannico morto di "fuoco amico" nel 1918, alla fine della prima guerra mondiale.
Owen scrisse "Anthem for Doomed Youth" nel 1917 mentre si trovava presso il Craiglockhart War Hospital di Edimburgo, ricoverato per le conseguenze di un'esplosione da cui era stato investito in battaglia.

The True Cross

[1992]
Album “The True Cross”

Ci sono tanti stereotipi del veterano della guerra in Vietnam: l’invalido fottuto, quello che non ha retto all’orrore ed è andato fuori di testa, il tossico e/o alcolista e/o barbone reietto dalla società, il traumatizzato divenuto un pazzo sanguinario che spara sulla folla dall’alto di qualche edificio oppure sequestra o stupra o uccide, quello che ha preso coscienza ed è diventato pacifista… In questa canzone David Rodriguez racconta invece di quei molti che, fattisi le ossa massacrando vietnamiti, continuarono poi a “servire la patria” massacrando o insegnando a massacrare altra gente nel “cortile di casa” USA, il centro e sud America. Infatti, finita nel 1975 la guerra nel sud est asiatico, per un reduce si aprivano straordinarie possibilità di impiego ben retribuito, sia nei quadri dell’esercito sia al di fuori di esso, come mercenario: Cile, Argentina,...

If We Don't Help Them Now

[2002]
Lyrics & Music by Pól Mac Adaim
Album: If We Don't Help Them Now

A contemporary Celtic arrangement..

This is not just an album with words and music, it is an archive from which I hope many will find answers to the many questions within it and our past. I’ve always believed that we must learn from our past, if we choose not to we will continue only to suffer the consequences of the past. We only need to look at places like Nanking, Terezin, and Vietnam, to see history repeat itself in Cambodia, Palestine and Iraq.
Just like the hunger strikes of 1981 Belfast was only 90 miles from Dublin, with the world rapidly developing each day it becomes smaller, Turkey really isn’t far when you consider the fact that they could gain entry to the European union, and like the song says "For as long as the fascists are in control there, they’ll come closer to you and to me".

Watch Out for the Traffic

[1986]
Lyrics & Music by Adrian J. Pratt
Album: Passions, Pains and Protestations

Nuclear arms, radioactive waste and the disposal of other toxic substances.... all the usual subject matter of a poppy ditty..

To elaborate....

From a high of 65,000 active weapons in 1985, there are now nearly 8,000 active nuclear warheads and more than 22,000 total nuclear warheads in the world of 2010. Many of the decommissioned weapons have simply been stored or partially dismantled, not destroyed. It scares me in an age where some influential people really believe Armageddon is the only final solution that they may consider hastening the day! I just don't swallow the theory that no lunatic would actually press the button. (Ever seen Dr. Strangelove?)

The disposal of nuclear waste is another scary consideration. In 1946 the United States sank containers of radioactive waste in the Pacific Ocean... (Continues)

Johnee Jingo

[1985]
Album “A Cappella”

Jingoism = "patriottismo estremista sotto forma di violenta politica estera" (Oxford English Dictionary).
Il termina deriva dal verso di una canzone inglese, “Macdermott's War Song”, risalente all’epoca della guerra russo-turca (1877-1878), uno dei tanti conflitti che nel corso della storia hanno insaguinato i Balcani e il Caucaso. Una parte dell’opinione pubblica inglese parteggiava per l’Impero Ottomano e auspicava un intervento diretto dell’Inghilterra nella guerra, perché “Costantinopoli non doveva cadere tra le grinfie dell’Orso Russo”. Il ritornello della canzone recitava infatti:

“We don't want to fight but, by jingo, if we do...
We've got the ships, we've got the men, and got the money too!
We've fought the Bear before... and while we're Britons true,
The Russians shall not have Constantinople...”

“Non vogliamo combattere ma, per dinci, se dobbiamo…”
