En lo puro no hay futuro

(2001)
da "De vuelta y vuelta", il terzo album del gruppo Jarabe de Palo

Nella purezza non c'è futuro. Canzone da dedicare a tutti quelli che sparlano di razze pure e sostituzione etnica. La bellezza sta nella mescolanza come ben sanno a Cuba dove per esaltare l'avvenenza delle donne mulatte dicono, in maniera un po' stereotipata, che "las mulatas son la envidia de las negras y la preocupación de las blancas".

Con questa canzoncina vogliamo ricordare Pau Donés, che ci ha lasciato ieri, e la dedichiamo anche a Alsoris Guzmán, la ragazza cubana che ha ispirato La Flaca, il primissimo successo di Jarabe de Palo, e che oggi vive a Milano.

Cancelleria

2014
dal primo EP dei Pinguini, Il re è nudo

Fra i brani più riusciti si ricorda sicuramente Cancelleria (dall’EP Il Re È Nudo), una sorta di Βατραχομυομαχία – Batracomiomachia ovvero “La guerra dei topi e delle rane”, un poemetto giocoso di 303 versi che nell’antichità era generalmente attribuito ad Omero − tra le penne e le matite che, in seguito allo sciopero generale delle gomme, avevano iniziato ad inneggiare alla rivoluzione e all’uguaglianza.

Ma nel Libero Stato di Cancelleria le dinamiche politiche sono uguali a quelle a cui assistiamo quotidianamente: le matite volevano solo gli stessi diritti degli altri, ma le socialmente elevate penne stilografiche e le proletarie graffette le prendono come capro espiatorio del loro malessere, perché è così che le disegna la stampa del potere. La valorosa lotta delle matite termina, allora, in fiumi di grafite.

Salt of the Earth

Settant'anni compiuti ieri. I Rolling Stones sono stati la colonna sonora della mia vita. Ascoltando i loro dischi sin dai loro albori, ho imparato ad apprezzare e ad ascoltare tutta la musica di ogni genere (tranne il Rap): dal Rock al Jazz, dalla Classica alla Lirica... persìno. Sono riuscito a vederli dal vivo il 10 giugno 2003 a San Siro (Milano): un concerto superlativo e un Mick Jagger strepitoso.

Promessa

(2020)

Promessa è una canzone che racconta l'amore ai tempi delle migrazioni e delle innumerevoli morti nel mediterraneo. È infatti una sfumatura narrativa del sentimento umano, attorno al disastro politico. In un solo testo, in una sola umida lettera, Promessa racconta l'estremo gesto, compiuto per amore, di chi s'imbarca nella speranza di porti sicuri oltre i quali costruire sogni concreti. Carica nei suoi versi la storia di chi, a differenza nostra, nella vita ha conosciuto nient'altro ché l'isolamento: nel quadrato putrido delle carceri libiche; nel cerchio di un barcone alla deriva nel Mediterraneo.

Bonito

Avevo iniziato traducendo con "carino" poi ho pensato che suona meglio bello, in alcuni casi "bellino", come si dice da queste parti. Il mondo oggi è un po' meno bello, senza l'allegria e l'ottimismo di Pau e dei suoi Jarabe de Palo. Questa non è neanche una delle sue canzoni più belle... ma trasmette sicuramente quella gioia di vivere che Pau ha avuto fino alla fine.

Asia

Chanson italienne – Asia – Francesco Guccini – 1970


Dialogue Maïeutique

Dans sa préface à L’Automne à Pékin, enfin si je me souviens bien, Lucien l’âne mon ami, Raymond Queneau soulignait combien ce titre était opportun puisque dans ce roman de Boris Vian, il n’est question ni de l’automne, ni de Pékin. Il n’en va pas du tout ainsi de cette Asie, puisqu’aussi bien, la chanson de Guccini, qui date quand même d’un demi-siècle, – la chanson, Guccini va sur ses quatre-vingts ans –, l’aborda à la proue d’un vaisseau vénitien, orné de l’oriflamme de la Sérénissime. C’était au temps où Venise rutilait, à l’époque où elle emmenait son Lion ailé partout en haut du mât de ses barzes, de ses galères, de ses galéasses, de ses galéones ; il flottait aussi et même surtout, sur ses vaisseaux de commerce. Venise préférait les comptoirs aux colonies ; on y investit moins et ça rapporte plus.

Lieutenant (Had Any Lately)

Trascritte all'ascolto con qualche dubbio.
Rispetto alla versione che fa riferimento diretto a Calley, la versione pubblicata a nome di Sylvia è più generica ma mantiene intatto tutto il messaggio contro la guerra.

Tricia Tell Your Daddy

(1969)

The song "Tricia, Tell Your Daddy" (Steed Records # 715), performed on this single by Andy Kim in 1969, targeted President Nixon's daughter Tricia. The narrator pleaded with her to spread "love and peace", and stop the "people dying needlessly" because Nixon "is everybody's daddy now". Composed by Jeff Barry & Marty Joe Kupersmith (aka Marty Sanders) of the band Jay and The Americans, who released their own version of the song in 1970: Tricia Tell Your Daddy, arranged by Donald Fagen & Walter Becker, otherwise known as Steely Dan.

War Can Wait

[2008]
Lyrics & music by Sean T. Wright
Album: War No More

War No More, released at the end of March 2008, “is a very special album”, Wright said. “It's my first album that carries a strong anti-war motif throughout. It tells a story that switches narrative, from my strong personal views to the wider perspective of my alter-ego Jimmy, who appears in many of my songs. It completes a very traumatic and paradoxically creative year. It culminated with the loss of my father to cancer on the eve of the album's completion, as well as working with the innovative production genius of Mark Tinley (Duran Duran, Adamski, Dandy Warhols)”.

Fuck tha Police

[1988]
Album: Straight Outta Compton
Songwriter(s): Ice Cube; MC Ren; The D.O.C.

Chicago police scanners hacked by Anonymous to play N.W.A.’s ‘Fuck Tha Police’

In the wake of the death of George Floyd who died on Monday, May 25th due to police brutality, Anonymous has joined up with protests and hacked Chicago police scanners to play N.W.A.’s ‘Fuck Tha Police’.

This past week has seen the Black Lives Matter movement escalate to an entirely new level. Following the death of a 46-year-old man named George Floyd, who died due to asphyxiation from being held to the ground by a police officer placing his knee in the crook of Floyd’s neck, the USA, and many places around the world, have seen pure outrage.

Beyond peaceful protests, there has been rioting, looting, and many people calling for a systematic change, including many musicians using their social platforms to promote justice.

We Are Soldiers

The lyrics of this song give the song a dramatic type of feel. The lyrics are saying that during the fight to win freedom, the soldiers (fighters) have had struggles and emotional and mental breakdowns but couldn't give up and had to continue to fight. The overall story being told in the song is very drama filled but real experiences and situations that real people had to go through.
-A'Tora Richardson
(From Smithsonian Folkways Recordings )

Music was essential to the African-American struggle for civil rights and equality. "We Are Soldiers in the Army" demonstrates how the Black American traditional song repertoire and older styles of singing were used to inspire and organize the Civil Rights Movement. The singers here remind us that the days of open discrimination and bigotry are not far behind us, and that "it's people's hearts we're trying to change now."

Words and Music by Mike Stout
Additional Words by Red Star Singers - 1974

We heard "Vietnam Will Win!" on a tape from New York made by Mike Stout.

We liked it but we wanted to rework parts of it. Gary rewrote some of the words and added a verse and Michael made some changes in the music. All this was done without Mike Stout ever hearing it. When we finally contacted him to let him know we changed the song and wanted to use it be was (fortunately) very pleased.

Soit, dit Lucien l’âne.

Donc, reprend Marco Valdo M.I., il y a quelques jours notre ami R.V. dans le commentaire introductif qu’il consacrait à la chanson Asia de Francesco Guccini, dont je compte faire prochainement la version française, et la clôture peut-être provisoire, probablement selon moi, du Chansonnier du Coronavirus – qui, soit dit en passant comporte 140 chansons et je pense même qu’il en manque.

Pig Nixon

1974
Album: The Force Of Life
Testo da YouTube

In the '60's a lot of spirituals and rock 'n' roll songs were overhauled to become freedom songs for civil rights demonstrators. “Pig Nixon” comes from “Oh Wallace,” (“you're never gonna jail us all”) which people sang in Alabama. We use “Pig Nixon” as an all-purpose song, writing verses for the occasion, each verse about a current issue.

When You Gonna Bring Our Soldiers Home

[1970]
Lyrics & music by Skeeter Davis
Album: It's Hard To Be A Woman

In 1970 Skeeter Davis aimed “When You Gonna Bring Our Soldiers Home” directly at president Nixon. Voicing a woman’s perspective, Skeeter declared, “Every mother has to worry about the son she loves, And every sweetheart has to worry too". Although Nixon did not think she should “protest” or “question” his policies, “I think I’ve got a right 'cause I just got word tonight, The Man I love was killed there yesterday, When you gonna bring our soldiers home?”. The following year, Arlene Harden’s “Congratulations, You Sure Made a Man Out of Him” was equally bitter and provided an even more frontal challenge to the South’s patriotic militarism. Unlike Lynn’s and Davis’ songs, in which the US soldiers had died, the character in this song had returned home profoundly impaired: “I watch him just sit by the window and silently... (Continues)
