Grace Slick

 

Ero solo un ragazzo,ma la voce di Grace Slick mi entrò dentro come un coltello  nel burro e fu amore al primo ascolto.Adoravo i Jefferson Airplane,ma (solo adesso lo ammetto) unicamente perchè c’era lei che gli americani chiamavano,un pò volgarmente ,ma con precisione descrittiva,”La voce dell’utero”.La perfezione fu,per me,l’album solista(anche se aiutata a piene mani dai Jefferson)”Manhole”.Se  non l’avete mai ascoltato,trovatelo e godetevelo.Grace è insuperabile.Cosa non trascurabile(capitava spesso)solo dopo qualche tempo vidi come era realmente l’oggetto dei miei desideri “musicali” e non fui certamente deluso…

Theme From The Movie “MANHOLE”
 

Sometimes it’s easy to believe it
Sound may be the warmest thing he’s found
He just starts playing, then he says to me:
“Ready your body for love, there is no gravity here”
Look up – the roof is gone and the long hand moves
Right on by the hour.
Look up – the roof is gone
The roof is gone, the roof is gone

La musica de espana es para mi como Ia libertad
Canta como si la libertad es suiyo
Convenir resuena para escapar
Escuche viento norte escuche
Como corneta nevada corneta cantar.
Alrededor vient oriente vient oriente
Enroyar disenroyar
Querdas que gritan
Querdas que cantan

Spanish wind keeps telling me
How it feels to sing free
It keeps blowing on me, and it’s showing me
Another way, another way to listen.
And if you hear, if you hear the wind singing like
Someone singing for your love
The more it sings the more you know
Horns and strings and time will show you
Show – show you, show you freedom

Como libertad – if it sounds good, when you hear him
If he looks good, when you see him
If he feels like a good man, when you touch him
When you come near him
I keep thinking about the way
You keep appearing in my ear

Spanish wind keeps telling me
How it feels to sing free
It keeps blowing on me, and it’s showing me
Another way, another way to listen.
And if you hear, if you hear the wind is singing like
Someone singing for your love
The more it sings the more you know
Horns and strings and time will show you
Show – show you, show you freedom

Como libertad – if it sounds good, when you hear him
If he looks good, when you see him
If he feels like a good man, when you touch him
When you come near him
I keep thinking about the way
You keep appearing in my ear

Viento del sur suena como carne caliente en tambor
Carne en carne pero viento oeste resuena
Como alas metalicas
Giralda vena demonstrando el camino
Lamentando se por Ia noche.
La rueda de yairro hierro en frente del sol.
Quatro pedasos de metal con puntas.
Corta el aire corta el cielo la hentes compelados para delatar
Resonar resonar escapar

And if you hear, if you hear
The singing silver wind
Fly, sailing, sailing human bird – fly into me
Look up – the roof is gone
And the long hand moves right, on right on by the hour
Look up the roof is gone
Look up again the roof is gone

Listen – the north wind sounds like freezing horns
Sailing through the east wind – and the east wind
Has winding unwinding strings
South wind sounds like skin on drums,
Skin on skin but the west wind,
Ah the west wind echoes like metal wings
Like a weathervein whining through the night
Iron wheel turns in front of the sun,
Four pronged metal cuts the sky.
Man must fly!
Man must fly!

Convenir resuena escapar – escapar
Convenir resuena escapar – escapar

If he wants to leave and follow
The sound of the wind
He’s going to sing as it blows.
Let him go.
He’ll make the long faces smile
He’ll turn the dead air into sound.
He’ll come back on the circle
He’s not gone, he’s just going around
Oh going around, ooh ooh around

Don’t tie him down, he wants to run
Give him the sun.
Don’t tie him down, he wants to run
Give him the sun.
And if you see – you think that man is going to leave
You can follow him but he’s already gone

Don’t tie her down, she wants to run
Give her the sun.
Don’t tie her down, she wants to run
Give her the sun.
And if you see – You think that woman is going to leave
You can follow her, but she’s already gone.

Don’t tie me down I want to run
Give me the sun.
Don’t tie me down I want to run
Give me the sun.
And if you see – You think I’m just about to leave,
You can follow me
But I’m already gone.

Don’t tie her down, she wants to run
Give her the sun.
Don’t tie her down, she wants to run
Give her the sun.
And if you see – You think that woman is going to leave
You can follow her, but she’s already gone.

Don’t tie me down I want to run
Give me the sun.
Don’t tie me down I want to run
Give me the sun.
And if you see – You think I’m just about to leave,
You can follow me
But I’m already gone.

GIVE ME THE SUN

    troppo bella!!!! e indimenticabile il periodo e le persone a me care che mi ha riportato alla mente. qualcuno non c’è più. mi ha ricordato quando io e una mia cara amica (?!?) passavamo i pomeriggi a cantarla e ancora oggi ogni tanto me la canto in macchina in mezzo al traffico di questa città meravigliosa con tante contraddizioni che qualche anno fa mi ha accolta e che purtroppo (per me) solo da poco sto imparando ad amare

     Veniva ascoltata in casa quand’ero ragazzino (intorno a
     metà anni ’70), e chi la ascoltava capiva quello che capiva,
     per esempio "lamentando se" era "le mutandos" (anche perché
     in effetti pronuncia "lementando" e non "lamentando").
     
     Nel testo ci sono degli errori, ovvero alcune parole non
     corrispondono a quelle cantate. E’ una cosa che capita
     spesso con i testi delle canzoni, pare lo facciano apposta.
     Ho iniziato a correggere e a tradurre anche con l’aiuto di
     qualcunaltro, ma c’è ancora qualcosa di insoluto. Adesso
     non ho tempo di trascrivere i link, cerca su google
     "grace slick" uniposta
     http://www.google.it/search?hl=it&source=hp&q=%22grace+slick%22+uniposta
     
     …e appena riuscirò a finire tornerò qui
