…I will do great things! February 23, 2009

Posted by Domenico in Music.

Ciao belli and belle. Let’s start the last week of this short month. February always reminds me of those things left unattended. Like when you study for the next day’s oral test and you reach the end of what you are supposed to learn or repeat. And you see the last paragraph, the last page or even the last rows of the it and you think… they will never ask me this part… and sometimes it happens. February is like an uncompleted lesson to learn.

About the music, today we have something suggested to me by Karin that I thank and gift with the song she chose from the ones released by Fever Ray.

As I learn from the official website: Fever Ray (real name: Karin Dreijer Andersson) is the formerly singer with ‘90s pop hopes “Honey Is Cool” and now one half of “The Knife”. She took a couple of years off from her bands/projects and returned as a solo artist under a new name.

Then, she’s Swedish, and released three albums widely acclaimed by the music scene. Now she’s about to have the second child but can’t stop writing/playing music/releasing beautiful and intense songs, like the one I’d like to share with you today, that is “When I Grow Up”:

you know what? this wasn’t too bad …

When I grow up, I want to be a forester
Run through the moss on high heels
That’s what I’ll do, throwing out boomerang
Waiting for it to come back to me

When I grow up, I want to live near the sea
Crab claws and bottles of rum
That’s what i’ll have staring at the seashell
Waiting for it to embrace me

I put my soul in what I do
Last night I drew a funny man
with dark eyes and a hanging tongue
It goes way bad, I never liked a sad look
From someone who wants to be loved by you

I’m very good with plants
When my friends are away
they let me keep the soil moist
On the seventh day I rest
for a minute or two
then back on my feet and cry for you oooh oh

You’ve got cucumbers on your eyes
Too much time spent on nothing
waiting for a moment to arise
The face in the ceiling and arms too long
I wait for him to catch me

Waiting for you to embrace me

Th melodic base is really simple, almost banal.
But somehow I really like this.
I hope she meets good musicians in the future… 🙂
