Amara terra mia (1971?)
Domenico Modugno
YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9EdbVdz6gk (cantata da Massimo Ranieri)

Sole alla valle,
sole alla collina.
Per le campagne
non c’è più nessuno.

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella.

Cieli infiniti
e volti come pietra.
Mani incallite
ormai senza speranza.

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella.

Tra gli uliveti
è nata già la luna.
Un bimbo piange,
allatta un seno magro.

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella!

Addio, addio amore,
io vado via.
Amara terra mia,
amara e bella!

 

Gimme the prize (1986)
Queen

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClRsUOY7ij8]

 

‘..garage and water from the sprinklers
It also left a man’s decapitated body lying on the floor next to his own severed head, a head which at this time has no name’

‘I know his name’

Here I am I’m the master of your destiny
I am the one the only one I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize
Give me your kings let me squeeze then in my hands
Your puny princes
Your so called leaders of your land
I’ll eat them whole before I’m done
The battle’s fought and the game is won
I am the one the only one
I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize

‘Now you die’

‘I have something to say,it’s better to burn out than to fade
away…
There can be only one’

Move over I said move over
Hey hey hey clear the way
There’s no escape from my authority – Didn’t I tell you
I am the one the only one I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize just gimme the prize
I am the one the only one
I am the god of kingdom come
Gimme the prize

There can be only one.

 

NOTE:

Someone like you (2011)
Adele

I heard that you’re settled down.
That you found a girl and you’re married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
It ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the lie.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

You’d know how the time flies.
Only yesterday was the time of our lives.
We were born and raised in a summery haze.
Bound by the surprise of our glory days.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,
But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.
I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,
That for me, it isn’t over yet.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”, yay.

Nothing compares, no worries or cares.
Regret’s and mistakes they’re memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.
I wish nothing but the best for you too.
Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:
“Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead”
Sometimes it lasts in love, but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

 

NOTE:

Rimmel (1975)
Francesco De Gregori

E qualcosa rimane, fra le pagine chiare,
fra le pagine scure,
e cancello il tuo nome dalla mia facciata
e confondo i miei alibi e le tue ragioni,
i miei alibi e le tue ragioni.
Chi mi ha fatto le carte mi ha chiamato vincente
ma lo zingaro è un trucco.
Ma un futuro invadente, fossi stato un pò più giovane,
l’avrei distrutto con la fantasia,
l’avrei stracciato con la fantasia.

Ora le tue labbra puoi spedirle a un indirizzo nuovo
e la mia faccia sovrapporla
a quella di chissà chi altro.
I tuoi quattro assi, bada bene, di un colore solo,
li puoi nascondere o giocare come vuoi
o farli rimanere buoni amici come noi.

Santa voglia di vivere e dolce Venere di Rimmel.
Come quando fuori pioveva e tu mi domandavi
se per caso avevi ancora quella foto
in cui tu sorridevi e non guardavi.
Ed il vento passava sul tuo collo di pelliccia
e sulla tua persona e quando io,
senza capire, ho detto sì.
Hai detto “E’ tutto quel che hai di me”.
È tutto quel che ho di te.

Ora le tue labbra puoi spedirle a un indirizzo nuovo
e la mia faccia sovrapporla
a quella di chissà chi altro.
I tuoi quattro assi, bada bene, di un colore solo,
li puoi nascondere o giocare come vuoi
o farli rimanere buoni amici come noi.

 

NOTE:

Have you ever seen the rain? (1970)
Creedence Clearwater Revival

Someone told me long ago
There’s a calm before the storm, I know;
It’s been coming for some time.
When it’s over, so they say,
It’ll rain a sunny day, I know;
Shining down like water.

I want to know, Have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, Have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down on a sunny day?

Yesterday, and days before, Sun is cold and rain is hard, I know;
Been that way for all my time.
‘Til forever, on it goes
Through the circle, fast and slow, I know; It can’t stop, I wonder.

I want to know, Have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, Have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down on a sunny day?

Yeah!

I want to know, Have you ever seen the rain?
I want to know, Have you ever seen the rain?
Coming down on a sunny day?
