Milano by Lucio Dalla

Milano vicino all’Europa
Milano che banche che cambi
Milano gambe aperte
Milano che ride e si diverte
Milano a teatro
un ole’ da torero
Milano che quando piange
piange davvero
Milano Carabinieri Polizia
che guardano sereni
chiudi gli occhi e voli via
Milano a portata di mano
ti fa una domanda in tedesco
e ti risponde in siciliano
poi Milan e Benfica
Milano che fatica
Milano sempre pronta al Natale
che quando passa piange
e ci rimane male
Milano sguardo maligno di Dio
zucchero e catrame
Milano ogni volta
che mi tocca di venire
mi prendi allo stomaco
mi fai morire
Milano senza fortuna
mi porti con te
sotto terra o sulla luna
Milano tre milioni
respiro di un polmone solo
Milano che come un uccello
gli sparano
ma anche riprende il volo
Milano piovuta dal cielo
tra la vita e la morte
continua il tuo mistero
Milano tre milioni
respiro di un polmone solo
che come un uccello
gli sparano
ma anche riprende il volo
Milano lontana dal cielo
tra la vita e la morte
continua il tuo mistero

Per essere felici, la vita deve trascorrere per lo più tranquilla, poiché la vera gioia può vivere soltanto in un’atmosfera di tranquillità.

Bertrand Russell, La conquista della felicità, 1930

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one laughs at God
When the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one’s laughing at God
When it’s gotten real late
And their kid’s not back from the party yet

No one laughs at God
When their airplane start to uncontrollably shake
No one’s laughing at God
When they see the one they love, hand in hand with someone else
And they hope that they’re mistaken
No one laughs at God
When the cops knock on their door
And they say we got some bad news, sir
No one’s laughing at God
When there’s a famine or fire or flood

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke
God can be funny,
When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious
Ha ha
Ha ha

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’ve lost all they’ve got
And they don’t know what for

No one laughs at God on the day they realize
That the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one’s laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes

But God can be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God-themed joke, or
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they’re ‘bout to choke
God can be funny,
When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one laughing at God in hospital
No one’s laughing at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God when they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
We’re all laughing with God

HeAVy WoOd… coming soon

From Perugia, Salento, and Montana (USA) Potent hard-folk with acoustic guitars played as if they were Gibson Flying-V’s, emerging as a melting pot of music and culture, somewhere between Gogol Bordello, ACDC, and Ennio Morricone. A can’t miss show for anyone who likes to move their feet!

Chains…

Angeli di Rosora, Italy, Chains by ©NicolaNigri 2015

Le persone sono molto abituate alla propria immagine, crescono attaccate alle proprie maschere, amano le proprie catene, si dimenticano chi sono in realtà, e se cerchi di ricordarglielo loro ti odiano.

Jim Morrison


It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act – and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.

Jim Morrison

“Short Skirt / Long Jacket” by CAKE

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond
I want a girl who knows what’s best
I want a girl with shoes that cut
And eyes that burn like cigarettes

I want a girl with the right allocations
Who’s fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She’s playing with her jewelry
She’s putting up her hair
She’s touring the facility
And picking up slack

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnng jacket……

I want a girl who gets up early
I want a girl who stays up late
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape
With fingernails that shine like justice
And a voice that is dark like tinted glass

She is fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She’s touring the facility
And picking up slack

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnng…. lonnng jacket

I want a girl with a smooth liquidation
I want a girl with good dividends
At Citibank we will meet accidentally
We’ll start to talk when she borrows my pen

She wants a car with a cupholder arm rest
She wants a car that will get her there
She’s changing her name from Kitty to Karen
She’s trading her MG for a white Chrysler La Baron

I want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnggggggggg jacket
