Secondo singolo per l’artista di origini Giordana Katie Melua,si tratta di Mary Pickford(use Eat Roses.). Canzone che è stata scritta da Mike batt,il testo parla di questa attrice vissuta nei primi anni del 900 e delle varie relazioni che ha avuto con vari attori di quell’epoca come ad esempio Charlie Chaplin.

Il brano fa parte del terzo cd della cantante “Pictures” che non ha avuto un gran riscontro di vendite pensate che il precedente album ha venduto quasi 5 milioni di copie,sinceramente è un vero peccato perchè l’album è molto bello il jazz e il blues si fondono benissimo con quei elementi di pop messi un pò qua e la.Il video è una perfetta ricostruzione di uno squarcio dei primi del 900,ottima regia che riprende alla grande la tecnica del cinema muto…vi lascio alla visione del video…

voi cosa ne pensate?commentate….

Il testo della canzone:

Mary Pickford used to eat roses
Thought that they’d make her beautiful and they did,
One supposes.

Douglas Fairbanks, he was so handsome,
He wore a moustache,
Must-a had much cash, too,
Worth a king’s ransom,

Charlie Chaplin, he was invited,
When these artists became united.
When these artists became united.

David Griffith worked as an extra,
Then as a stagehand,
Until they let him be
A director

Dave was brave, a mover and shaker,
A true pioneer,
He seemed to show no fear,
A real film maker

Just like Chaplin, he was invited,
When these artists became united.
When these artists became united.

They tied the knot together,
Groom and bride couldn’t hide their pleasure.
They tried to pick fair weather,
But love died, didn’t last forever.

Mary Pickford used to eat roses,
Thought that they’d make her beautiful and they did,
One supposes.

Douglas Fairbanks, he was so handsome,
He wore a moustache,
Must-a had much cash too,
Worth a king’s ransom.

Charlie Chaplin, he was invited,
When these artists became united.
When these artists became united.
When these artists became united

Torna una delle voce più calde degli ultimi anni sto parlando di Katie Melua che con il suo precedente album ha fatto innamorare anche l’italia.Uscito da poco il suo nuovo lavoro “Pictures“,conferma la classe e la bravura di questa artista che è considerata una delle artiste più influenti del pop/jass/blues degli ultimi anni.Il primo estratto dal suo nuovo album è “If You Were a Sailboat“un brano dalle atmosfere sognanti e fiabesche.

Il video come la canzone ci trasporta in mezzo a un mondo incantato,un video sicuramente a basso costo ma che riesce a trasmettere benissimo il messaggio della canzone….vi lascio al video….

Il testo della canzone:

If you were a cowboy I would trail you,
If you were a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor.
If you were a sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
If you were a river I would swim you,
If you were a house I would live in you all my days.
If you were a preacher I’d begin to change my ways.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was in jail I know you’d spring me,
If I was a telephone you’d ring me all day long.
If I was in pain I know you’d sing me soothing songs.

Sometimes I believe in fate,
But the chances we create,
Always seem to ring more true.
You took a chance on loving me,
I took a chance on loving you.

If I was hungry you would feed me,
If I was in darkness you would lead me to the light.
If I was a book I know you’d read me every night.

If you were a cowboy I would trail you,
If you were a piece of wood I’d nail you to the floor.
If you were sailboat I would sail you to the shore.

If you were sailboat I would sail you to the shore.

If you were sailboat I would sail you to the shore.
