    Dom 31 Mag – The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Vivian Girls

    Davvero simpatico il concerto di questa sera all’Hana-Bi di Marina. Onestamente devo dire che non conoscevo il gruppo (l’indie rock non è il mio genere musicale preferito) però loro erano veramente bravi e sono riusciti a farmi appassionare. Il cantante poi ha una voce particolarissima, quasi magnetica. Peccato solo che sia finito così presto…

    Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon by Urge Overkill

    Based on a girl by =cutemew


    Girl, you'll be a woman... soon

    I love you so much, can't count all the ways
    I've died for you girl and all they can say is
    "He's not your kind"
    They never get tired of putting me down
    And I'll never know when I come around
    What I'm gonna find
    Don't let them make up your mind.
    Don't you know...

    Girl, you'll be a woman soon,
    Please, come take my hand
    Girl, you'll be a woman soon,
    Soon, you'll need a man

    I've been misunderstood for all of my life
    But what they're saying girl it cuts like a knife
    "The boy's no good"
    Well I've finally found what I'm a looking for
    But if they get their chance they'll end it for sure
    Surely would
    Baby I've done all I could
    Now it's up to you...

    Girl, you'll be a woman soon,
    Please, come take my hand
    Girl, you'll be a woman soon,
    Soon, you'll need a man

    Girl, you'll be a woman soon,
    Please, come take my hand
    Girl, you'll be a woman soon,
    Soon but soon, you'll need a man

    Famous Last Words by Zeromancer

    When every tear I shed... by *GothicXpress


    Kill your senses
    You might be right
    Hold your fire
    I'll take you higher
    Never drop
    We'll never stop

    Tar for feathers
    Blood for honey
    Milk for money
    Isn't it funny how it hurts
    How it hurts

    You never see me make
    The same mistake twice
    You never see a tear
    Coming out of these eyes
    You never see me beg
    For another shot
    And you never see me change
    Into something I'm not
    Famous last words

    Stare at someone
    You used to know
    Laughs at you
    Turns around and fade away
    If only I could see it that way

    Kill your senses
    It can't be right
    Isn't it funny how it hurts

    You never see me make
    The same mistake twice
    You never see a tear
    Coming out of these eyes
    You never see me quit
    See me disengage
    And you never see me spit in your face
    Out of rage
    Famous last words
  • Massive Attack... What-a-Concert!

    Sab 19 Lug – Ravenna Festival: Massive Attack

    English version
    Please help me to improve my skills in English by providing through PM accurate feedbacks on my articles!
    Yesterday evening I had the pleasure to breathe an alternative fresh air. I must be sincere, I didn't know Massive Attack very well; I just listened their Teadrop per chance: it was something stunning. I got charmed by its beautiful melody so that I decided to go to their concert here in Ravenna.

    Their concert was really good, especially for the pyro-led effects. Their political campaign bewildered me, but at the end I understood what they wanted to say. I thought they were "just" an experimental music band (in fact somebody refers to them as the founders of trip-hop) but... hey, you really had to be there. To be sincere, I didn't like their last excerpts from Stalin: too drastic. However it's pleasant to see that in this world there are people still interested in human rights and don't give a damn about who think differently, particullary when they're standing by thousand of people. Unfortunately I left my camera at home, darn.

    Two black marks: the short duration of the event - only a hour and fourtyfive minutes - and the passiveness of the crowd, including myself.

    ----------

    Versione Italiana
    Quello a cui ho avuto il piacere di assistere ieri sera è stato un concerto veramente alternativo. Devo essere sincero, non conoscevo molto bene i Massive Attack; mi era capitato di ascoltare per caso la loro Teadrop e ne rimasi talmente affascinato da decidere di andare al loro concerto.

    Il concerto è stato veramente bello, spettacolari gli effetti ottenuti con i display led. Una cosa che mi ha lasciato felicemente sorpreso è la loro attività politica. Pensavo che fossero un gruppo attivo solo dal punto della sperimentazione di nuovi generi musicali (non a caso c'è chi li definisce fondatori del trip-hop) e invece... eh, dovevate esserci. Le ultime due citazioni di Stalin, se devo essere sincero, non mi sono piaciute tanto: troppo estreme per un moderato come me. Mi fa piacere comunque sapere che esistono ancora delle persone interessate ai temi dei diritti umani e che non hanno paura di dire ciò che pensano davanti ad un pubblico eterogeneo come quello di ieri sera. Peccato che mi sia dimenticato la macchina fotografica a casa.

    Due note negative: la durata dell'evento - appena un'ora e tre quarti - e la passività del pubblico, incluso il sottoscritto.
