Zingari

Chanson italienne – Zingari – Punkreas – 2000

On ne sait pour les autres, dit Lucien l'âne, mais pour les Tziganes, l'histoire a la mauvaise habitude de se répéter. Pire, elle bafouille, elle bégaie, elle ne connaît qu'une manière : la chasse au nomade et cela depuis si longtemps qu'on a même oublié quand cela avait commencé. Finalement, ce n'est plus là méchanceté, c'est un réflexe conditionné, une habitude ancestrale, un conditionnement historique... pour la préhistoire, on ne sait pas... Pourtant, moi qui bourlingue depuis des siècles et des siècles, je peux te dire que les Gitans ou les Tziganes ou les Bohémiens ou les Roms, alias les Romanichels que j'ai croisés n'ont certainement pas été pires que les Sédentaires – comment les appeler autrement ? Les citadins, mais il y avait des paysans... Les citoyens, on pourrait imaginer les Citoyens. Mais attention, même nous les ânes, nous sommes... (Continues)

Into the Valley

[1979]
Album: Scared to Dance

"Into the Valley" is a 1979 single by Skids, taken off their “Scared to Dance“ album, and is their best known song, appearing on a number of punk rock and Scottish music compilation albums. It reached number 10 in the UK Singles Chart for the week ending 24 March 1979. It was written by Richard Jobson and Stuart Adamson.
"Into the Valley" is still used as a theme song for fans of Dunfermline Athletic F.C. in the Scottish First Division and Charlton Athletic F.C. of the English Football League Championship, whose stadium is aptly named The Valley. It was also used in their premiership years by Bradford City A.F.C., whose stadium is named Valley Parade.
The song's lyrics are notoriously unintelligible owing to Jobson's diction. This has been sent up in a Maxell television advertisement which features printed (incorrect) "translations" of the words. The chorus,... (Continues)

L'ultima notte

Testo di Carlo Geminiani sulla base degli scritti di Giulio Bedeschi
Musica del maestro Bepi De Marzi

Nel 1943, dopo giorni di marcia nella steppa gelata, il 26 gennaio, gli alpini riuscirono finalmente a sfondare le linee russe al ponte della ferrovia di Nikolajewka e ad uscire dalla sacca nella quale erano rinchiusi. Era la strada verso la libertà, ma anche una durissima battaglia contro il gelo, la mancanza di mezzi e il nemico. L’approssimativa preparazione e l’inadeguatezza degli equipaggiamenti per quell’entrata baldanzosa in guerra dell’Italia anche sul fronte russo, sbandierata con i molteplici mezzi della propaganda governativa, venivano ora pagate a duro prezzo dagli alpini che iniziarono una tremenda marcia verso casa, armati solo del loro coraggio e della loro resistenza contro quel Generale Inverno che nel passato aveva già crudelmente piegato anche le truppe militari di...

Killers

[1916]

Dalla raccolta intitolata “Chicago Poems”.
Musica di Michael Hennagin (1936 –1993) compositore e docente universitario statunitense, dal ciclo intitolato “The Unknown”, musica per soprano, contralto, tenore e basso, pianoforte, flauto, trombe, percussione, proiettori slide e registratore elettronico (1968).

Una poesia ispirata a Sandburg dalla sua partecipazione alla guerra ispano-americana, esperienza giovanile che lo segnò profondamente. Una poesia, inoltre, in qualche modo profetica perché, pur essendo scritta intorno al 1916, bel prima del termine del primo conflitto mondiale e prima del coinvolgimento degli USA in esso, vi si parla di “sedici milioni di morti”, una cifra abbastanza vicina al bilancio finale di soldati morti e dispersi nel corso di quella terribile guerra (cui però devono essere aggiunti quasi 7 milioni di civili)…

Histoires d'Allemagne

Canzone française – Histoires d'Allemagne – Marco Valdo M.I. – 2010
Vialatteries I.

On fait parfois des choses sans trop savoir pourquoi. C'est un peu le rythme du pas du poète, de celui qui fait, de celui qu'un bouillonnement intérieur pousse à conter des histoires, à inventer des chansons. Par exemple, je ne sais trop si ce que j'ai fait a sa place ici...

Je me demande bien pourquoi donc tu me dis cela, Marco Valdo M.I. mon ami. Qu'as-tu bien pu inventer qui te tracasse à ce point ?... car je le vois bien cela te tracasse.

En effet, cela me tracasse. Tu l'as bien senti, mon ami Lucien l'âne. Mais il est vrai que tu es mon ami et que tu es un âne sensible. Ce que j'ai inventé, ce qui m'est passé par la tête, puis que j'ai fait, c'est une sorte de chanson de geste, une sorte d'opera secco, une étrange fresque qui, à sa manière, recrée un voyage dans l'Allemagne...

Più di voi

Chanson italienne – Più di voï – Punkreas – 2002
« Mourir du travail non. »

Nous avions déjà rencontré les Punkreas et même, traduit une de leurs chansons « Ma che bel mondo è », car elle avait fait l'objet d'une censure commerciale, de la part de ceux qui s'arrogent le droit d'enfermer les mots dans des contrats pour en tirer des profits des plus illicites... A-t-on déjà vu l'oiseau réclamer des droits d'auteur sur ses authentiques créations ?

L'oiseau, non. Mais des gens comme eux, oui. Ils ont réussi à enfermer le chant de l'oiseau dans leur caisse à musique, caisse enregistreuse , s'il en est. Ils ont coupé les ailes aux oiseaux, ils sont coupé la langue aux rossignols. On ne peut être plus crétin. Ce pourquoi tu avais toi aussi fait une parodie de la même de leurs chansons – What a thunderfull World.... Cela dit, la chanson d'aujourd'hui que dit-elle ?

La vicenda si intreccia nel periodo della rifondazione dell’Italia moderna , attraverso l’abisso della dittatura fascista, dell’occupazione nazista e delle distruzione della guerra con protagonisti lombardi. Luigi Canali, nome di battaglia Renzo Invernizzi poi Capitano Neri o semplicemente Neri, personaggio chiave della resistenza comasca tra i primi organizzatori delle bande di resistenti sui monti lariani da cui prenderà vita la 52^ Brigata Garibaldi, uno dei più importanti raggruppamenti della resistenza Armata Comasca. Incrocerà la sua esistenza con una giovane staffetta milanese “ Giuseppina Tuissi” nome di battaglia “Gianna” .

Da questo incontro prende vita una complessa e ricca vicenda di misteri, eroismi e probabili tradimenti definita , nella prefazione di Marino Severini, la storia di tutte le storie, l’amore della Gianna e del Neri, un amore al tempo... (Continues)

The Walk

The song is a ballad in which the song's narrator tells about his life through walking. In the first verse, he is a boy who is reluctant to walk down the driveway to the school bus and go to school, until he is comforted by his father. In the second verse, the narrator is again comforted by his father after being drafted and sent to fight in Vietnam. By the third verse, the father is now very old and about to die, when is comforted by the narrator with the same words as before.
