Il tic

Scritta dal grande cabarettista milanese Walter Valdi, per intenderci, quello de «Il palo della banda dell'Ortica», scritta per Jannacci.

“Lavoravo in quel di Baggio, e mi han licenziato a maggio...”

Morte al lavoro!
Viva il Primo Maggio! (quasi finito, per fortuna...)
Lavoravo in quel di Baggio

Ma che bella giornata

Parole di Guido Lamberti, in arte Ugolino
Musica di Pino Cappelletti

Quasi finita questa tediosa giornata del Primo Maggio, appena movimentata, a Torino, da qualche sano scontro con le forze dell’ordine e qualche sacrosanto fischio a Fassino, e in provincia de L’Aquila, purtroppo, dall’ennesima morte bianca, un operaio romeno di 51 anni - si chiamava Vasile Copil - caduto da un’impalcatura mentre lavorava nel giorno della festa dei lavoratori...

“Ma che bella giornata! ‘Vogliamoci bene!’, dicono tutti, però l’indomani ci sono più lutti... mi illudo che vivo ed invece son morto...”, cantava il buon Ugolino...

Morte al lavoro (specie se dà la morte)!
Buon Primo Maggio (è quasi finito, coraggio)!
Mi sveglio al mattino e sento gridare

La revanche

La Revanche
Chanson française de Boby Lapointe – 1975
La Rivincita
Canzone francese di Boby Lapointe - 1975

Ah, mon ami Lucien l'âne, ce premier jour du mois de mai a déjà fait couler beaucoup de sang et beaucoup d'encre. Beaucoup de sang, car c'est ce jour-là que les travailleurs ont choisi pour fêter les travailleurs morts au travail, morts du travail et morts sans travail ou plus exactement pour ces derniers, morts sans ressources, sans nourriture, sans médicaments... Car être sans travail n'est pas une mauvaise chose, c'est même le rêve ultime de bien des travailleurs. L'éradication du travail est le but fondamental de l'humanité. L'homme quand enfin, il atteint l'âge d'homme, quand il atteint l'âge d'or – souvent décrit dans les religions comme le paradis – l'homme n'est plus tenu à la servitude du travail et alors, il peut enfin faire ce qu'il veut, ce qu'il conçoit comme bien,...

Nailing Descartes to the Wall / (Liquid) Meat Is Still Murder

I speak outside what is recognized as the border between “reason” and “insanity”. But I consider it a measure of my humanity to be written off by the living graves of a billion murdered lives. And I’m not ashamed of my recurring dreams about me and a gun and a different species (hint: starts with “h” and rhymes with “Neuman’s”) of carnage strewn about the stockyards, the factories and farms. Still I know as well as anyone that it does less good than harm to be this honest with a conscience eased by lies. But you cannot deny that meat is still murder. Dairy is still rape. And I’m still as stupid as anyone, but I know my mistakes. I have recognized one form of oppression, now I recognize the rest. And life’s too short to make another’s shorter-(animal liberation now!).

Lyrics & Music by Olgostin
Album: The Story of History

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea. But killing a man, you kill a man. And this is something horrible, which words cannot describe. No, words cannot describe...

On January 15, 1919 Rosa Luxemburg
and Karl Liebknecht were captured by the Freikorps Garde-Kavallerie-Schützendivision.
Rosa Luxemburg was rifle-butted, then shot in the head, and her body was thrown into Berlin's Landwehr Canal. Karl Liebknecht was shot in the Tiergarten and his "anonymous" body was brought to a mortuary.
The German revolution was in this way terminated..
More than four months after the murders, on 1 June 1919, Rosa Luxemburg's corpse was found and identified after an autopsy at the Berlin Charité hospital..
You were rifle-butted

Take This Job and Shove It

Scritta da David Allan Coe.

“Prendi ‘sto lavoro e ficcatelo in quel posto...”, così dice al padrone il lavoratore che finalmente ha aperto gli occhi... Una canzone che stette nella top ten country per ben 18 settimane, di cui due al primo posto (vorrà dire qualcosa, no?!?)... Coverizzata - c’era da aspettarselo - dai Dead Kennedys nel loro album «Bedtime for Democracy» del 1986...

Per il percorso “Mort au travail”...

Buon Primo Maggio!
Take this job and shove it

Je peux pas travailler


Paroles: Boris Vian, musique: Henri Salvador
Interprétation : Henri Salvador

La résistance des travailleurs au travail est incommensurable... Elle reflète exactement le sens de l'humanisation de l'espèce de bipèdes que nous sommes. Et je crois bien, Lucien l'âne mon ami, que les quadrupèdes que vous êtes seront du même avis que nous... Le travail doit être réduit au minimum...

En effet. Par exemple, plutôt que de tourner sempiternellement en rond pour actionner une noria grinçante et épuisante, on préfère, nous les ânes, que ce soit le vent qui fasse le travail...

C'est très précisément, le sens des efforts d'humanisation de la vie que tentent les ingénieurs, quand ils sont ingénieux... Faire faire le travail par les machines ou par des éléments tels que l'eau (turbine, moulin...), le vent (moulin, éoliennes...) ou par le recours à l'énergie fossile... Tout plutôt que que...

Lyrics & Music by Joakim Brodén and Pär Sundström
Album: The Art of War

This song is devoted to the Battle of Wizna, called the Polish Thermopylae (September 7-10, 1939, the Nazi invasion of Poland).
720 of our soldiers (equipped with six 76mm guns, 42 machine guns) defended the not finished bunker lines against 54,000 Germans (with 350 tanks and Stukas' support) commanded by general Heinz Guderian. Poles abandoned their positions not before Guderian threatened to shoot Polish POWs. The Polish commander, captain Władysław Raginis, who committed suicide after the fallen battle, is one of the symbols of the heroic Polish defense in September 1939.
Baptized in fire.

Tempi difficili

Testo di Riccardo Venturi
Musica del Mare
da Livorno (1997/98)

Questa canzone è vecchia; è del 1998. In realtà, allora, credevo di scrivere “poesie” o roba del genere; però, senza saperlo, scrivevo canzoni. E se un giorno o l'altro imparerò a strimpellare due accordi su una chitarra, questa qui sarà una delle prime. In generale, sono molto critico verso me stesso; ci sono delle cose che non tirerei fuori nemmeno con un fucile puntato addosso. Col tempo, invece, ho maturato l'idea che sia giusto tirarne fuori altre che sembrano resistere almeno un po' al tempo. Non è per vanità, né per altre voglie autoreferenziali; proprio non sento queste cose in me, nemmeno minimamente. Ma ritengo che le parole scritte da ognuno chiedano, esigano di essere tolte dal silenzio perché, adesso, sono tutte importanti. In questo, e lo debbo riconoscere con onestà e con piacere, Marco Valdo mi è stato... (Continues)

Album: Ballate postmoderne
Presente anche nell'album collettivo "Addosso! L'Italia non si taglia" (Artisti vari)

"L'ispirazione di questo lavoro arriva dalla lettura del testo di Jean-François Lyotard del 1979 La condizione postmoderna. Caratteristica della società postmoderna è il venir meno delle grandi narrazioni metafisiche (illuminismo, idealismo, marxismo) che hanno giustificato ideologicamente la coesione sociale e ispirato le utopie rivoluzionarie. Negli anni '80, in Italia, queste cosiddette grandi narrazioni cominciano a diventare un fenomeno di mercato, gettando le basi della società attuale. Gli anni '80 sono il decennio cruciale in cui la mia generazione ha vissuto la sua formazione culturale, ed è proprio su questo che le... (Continues)

Wearing Men's Clothing

Lyrics & Music by Olgostin
Album: The Story of History

A dog barking... then enters a guitar, the bass and here comes Joan of Arc.

Jeanne wore men's clothing between her departure from Vaucouleurs and her abjuration at Rouen... Yes, Jeanne is Jeanne d'Arc or Joan of Arc, if you like, or, as François Villon would say: "Jeanne la bonne Lorraine qu'Anglais brûlèrent à Rouen"..

She had been the heroine of her country at 17, and died when only 19 years old: on May 30 1431, in Rouen, she was burnt at the stake.

51st State (State of Denial)

Lyrics & Music by Joe Messanella
Album: Long Lost Home

"Saw an interview of Kurt Vonnegut on the Jon Stewart show where he talked about his new book, man without a country, and how he wanted to call it the 51st state.. the time I wanted to write a song called "A Man without a Country", but felt his idea was better..... summing up the Bush Administration being in the state of denial.... I could only shake my head and agree.. indeed the 51st State is the state of Denial."

Ragazzi bellissimi

Album : Le storie degli altri

“Ragazzi bellissimi”: una Paola Turci ironica come ogni tanto ci ha abituato. Un loop di batteria è lo sfondo ideale alla voce è solo un piccolo contorno ad un testo molto più forte. Ragazzi bellissimi in senso lato, nel senso dell'amore che muove il mondo, contro le guerre del potere, delle religioni, contro i potenti...di spettri e pistole....
“Mentre il mondo si rigira faccio fatica a riprendermi, con l'aria brutta che tira cerco di alzare lo sguardo, perché c'è gente felice di essere viva...”
