🎵 COLDPLAY – Champion of the world

After listening to the whole album on spotify I can say that this is the best song on the album. The style of the various songs differs greatly from that of the previous albums. Some may be disappointed by the more classic and less rock style.

In fact I like this album less, where the voices and the choirs take over the music and the voice of Chris Martin. Probably the band had the need to break a bit with the classic pop-rock that made all the songs of real hits.

The first part of the text is in Igbo language, a language of an African ethnic group that lives in Nigeria and the translation is:

What are you talking about, dear God?
For everything
God made it

 

LYRICS
Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu
N’ihi ihe nile
Nke chukwu mere

I tried my best to be just like
The other boys in school
I tried my best to get it right
And died at every duel
This mountainside is suicide
This dream will never work
Still the sign upon my headstone, write
“A champion of the world”

Oh oh-oh
Oh oh-oh-oh oh oh

I tried my best to stay alight
Fly like a firework
I tried my best at taking flight
But my rocket ship reversed
Oh, referee, don’t stop the fight
Everyone can see I’m hurt
But I’ll stand before conquistadors
Till I’m champion of the world

(When I sail) And when I sail
I’m sailing west
(Know I might fail) Knowing I might fail
But still I’m hoping for the best
(In my dreams) And in my dreams
Onto my chest
She’ll pin the colours and say
“I wandered the whole wide world but
Baby, you’re the best”

Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh
Ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yeah
Lo lo-lo-lo lo

So I’m flying on my bicycle
Heading upwards from the Earth
I am jumping with no parachute
Out into the universe
I have E.T. on my bicycle
Because giving up won’t work
Now I’m riding on my rocketship
And I’m champion of the world

 

TRADUZIONE TESTO

Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu
N’ihi ihe nile
Nke chukwu mere

Ho fatto del mio meglio per essere proprio come
Gli altri ragazzi a scuola
Ho fatto del mio meglio per farlo bene
E morire ad ogni duello
Questo versante è un suicidio
Questo sogno non funzionerà maiAncora una scritta sulla mia lapide, che dice
“Un campione del mondo”

Oh oh-oh
Oh oh-oh-oh oh oh

Ho fatto del mio meglio per stare tranquillo
Volare come un fuoco d’artificio
Ma la mia nave spaziale si è capovolta
Oh, arbitro, non fermare la lotta
Tutti possono vedere che sono ferito
Ma starò davanti ai conquistatori
Fino a quando non sarò campione del mondo

(Quando navigo) E quando navigo
Navigo verso ovest
(So che potrei fallire)Sapendo che potrei fallire
Ma, spero comunque per il meglio
(Nei miei sogni) E nei miei sogni
Sul mio pettoLei appunterà i colori e dirà
“Ho girato il mondo i lungo e in largo ma
Tesoro, tu sei il meglio”

Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh
Ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yeah
Lo lo-lo-lo lo

Quindi sto volando sulla mia bicicletta
Uscendo dalla Terra
Sto saltando senza il paracadute
Fuori nell’universo
Ho E.T. sulla mia bicicletta
Perché arrendersi non servirà
Ora sto guidando la mia nave spaziale
E io sono il campione del mondo

🎵 U2, A.R Rahman – Ahimsa

 

Here is the new U2 song

Ahimsa is a single from the Irish musical group U2 and the Indian composer A. R. Rahman, published November 22, 2019.

In September 2019, Rahman and the Irish group had a meeting in New York, at the Electric Lady Studios, to trace the guidelines of the musical project that led to the birth of the musical piece. On the meaning of the song, Rahman, in an interview with the Indian edition of Rolling Stone, stated that it originates from the meaning of the Sanskrit word ahimsa, which can be summarized in non-violence. The U2 frontman, Bono, on this track recalled how the commitment of the Irish group to respect human rights is a key element of their work and how Martin Luther King was a witness for them. Moreover, Martin Luther King himself saw an example in Gandhi.

The song begins and ends with a female choir composed of Raheema and Khatija, Rahman’s daughters, who sing verses extracted from the book Tirukkural, written in Tamil

Ahimsa (Sanskrit: अहिंसा; IAST: ahiṃsā, Pāli: avihiṃsā) is term meaning “not to injure”, derived from the Sanskrit root hiṃs – to strike (hiṃsā is injury or harm, a-hiṃsā is the opposite of this, i.e. cause no injury, do no harm). Ahimsa is also referred to as nonviolence, and is one of the cardinal virtues and an important ethical and mystical tenet of Jainism, Hinduism, and Buddhism. It can involve many complex and multidimensional concepts, inspired by the premise that all living beings have the spark of the divine spiritual energy (prana), and relationships of Karma, and that to needlessly oppress any being is to hurt oneself, and all beings, in ways that can be obvious or mysterious. Strongly inspired by Hindu and Jain concepts of ahimsa, Mahatma Gandhi popularized many of its strategies worldwide, among people of many diverse traditions.

Goodbye November [2019]

goodbyenovember-peanutssnoopy
illustration of Schulz [Peanuts]
November is over, and it’s about to begin December. What is the saddest month of the year? Probably for many it is November. Instead December and January are months of holidays and February is a month of preparation for the spring of 21st March.

In November the leaves of the trees are red, the cold becomes more intense and people stuff themselves with coats. In our mind, the idea that the current year is coming to an end comes into our mind.

In the United States in November there is a Thanksgiving Day, which is considered a very important party. Instead in the other western countries there is the party of November 1 (all saints days) which however is considered a sad recurrence because it is used as commemoration of the dead, that happens just the following day.

Although November is for many the excellence month of autumn, many consider it as a month of reconciliation with the nature. The Danish Philosopher Kierekegaard wrote:

“In autumn everything reminds us of twilight, – and yet, it seems to me the most beautiful season: he wanted the sky then, when I will live my twilight, that there must be someone who then loves me as I loved the autumn.”

 

🎵 U2 – City of Blinding Lights

I believe this is the most suitable song on this day, where shops and malls have dazzling lights on the cities.

LYRIC

The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now
Neon heart dayglo eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
For people like us
And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground…
Ooh ooh ooh
OOh Ooh ooh
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights
Don’t look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs purple irises
The camera can’t see
I’ve seen you walk unafraid
I’ve seen you in the clothes you made
Can you see the beauty inside of me?
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me
And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground
Ooh ooh ooh
OOh Ooh ooh
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights
Time… Time
Won’t leave me as I am
But time won’t take the boy out of this man
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights
The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for others steal
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel… luckily

 

TRADUZIONE TESTO
Più vedi, meno sai
Più cresci, meno capisci
io sapevo più cose rispetto a quanto so adesso

cuore che dà luce, luce giornaliera agli occhi
la città è illuminata dalle lucciole
si stanno annunciando nei cieli
e noi piacciamo alle persone

e mi manchi quando non sei qui intorno mi sto preparando a lasciare il suolo

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

oh sei così bella stanotte…
nella città di luci accecanti

non pensare prima di ridere
cerca di sembrare cattiva in una fotografia
lampade, iridi color porpora che
la macchina fotografica non può vedere

ti ho vista camminare senza paura
ti ho vista nei vestiti che hai fatto
riesci a vedere la bellezza dentro di me?
cos’è successo alla bellezza che avevo dentro di me?

e mi manchi quando non sei qui intorno
mi sto preparando a lasciare il suolo
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

oh sei così bella stanotte… stanotte…
nella città di luci accecanti

il tempo… il tempo… il tempo…
non mi lascerà così come sono
ma non porterà via il ragazzo che c’è in quest’uomo

oh sei così bella stanotte…
oh sei così bella stanotte…
oh sei così bella stanotte…
nella città di luci accecanti

Più sai meno senti
alcune preghiere che gli altri ruberanno
le benedizioni non sono solo per quelli che strisciano fortunati

The Black Friday of the President TRUMP

petergriffinDonaldTRUMP
Peter Griffin (Griffin Family Cartoon) in President Donald TRUMP

What do you think President Trump does on black Friday? He will be almost indifferent to the people who crowd in to buy gifts and things on offer.

Donald Trump’s wealth is almost unimaginable. In recent days, on the allegations that they claimed falsifications in tax returns, he stated that he is richer than people may believe, after criticizing the New York prosecutor’s attempt to acquire “all the financial transactions I have done” .
Donald Trump announced that he will make the tax return known before the election. Like any other person, he will make Christmas presents, but surely he will not rush the day of black friday to shop, or at least not to do them all.

The president of the united states will have so many people to give gifts to, but surely an entrepreneurial man like himself often lives in a solitude of the successful man.

In fact, many people have claimed that in the years when TRUMP climbed the success it was very cold: “How much do you have to be an asshole to be a successful person?”

IfWomenWereMenForADay

petergriffinwomen

Today, among the twitter trends there is: “If Women Were Men For A Day”.

Someone, on Thanksgiving Day, wanted to indulge in hunting this somewhat extravagant hashtag. There would be much to say if a woman was a man for a day. He (she) would not fall into gossip, or he would not speak in the ambiguous and somewhat bifurcated way that often characterizes a woman. It would be paranoid and save a couple of hours a day for facial makeup.

I think it is difficult for a woman to become temperamentally a man, while the opposite would be more realistic. The character of a woman, although it may become tomboy, never became completely man because a woman’s character is an indelible mark, difficult to remove or erase.  The woman hardly ever gives up her femininity, except in some rare cases where she wants to save herself from a system that would kill her.

Thanksgiving Day

thanks

The day of thanksgiving began, as every year, with the parade in Manhattan with balloons of various parsonages, including snoopy in an astronaut version.

High winds have been blowing through New York City, and the balloons generally aren’t supposed to be flown when sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city regulations.
Sustained wind speed in New York is expected to be around 20 mph, and gusts could reach around 40 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

But this year the bad weather seems to ruin Thanksgiving weekend.

In fact, the deep oceanic depression arriving on the western United States will move right from next Thursday on the central US areas, shifting to the north-eastern areas by Monday, ruining the long weekend practically on almost all the US territory.

Day off for Wall Street, which today will be closed for the national Thanksgiving holiday. Trading will resume tomorrow with a reduced timetable. The New York Stock Exchange, Friday, November 29, 2019, will end the session at 1 pm local time (6 pm in England) instead of at the usual time of 4 pm (9 pm in England).

The Pope’s journey to Thailand and Japan

 

PopeTokyo2019
The Pope goes down to the Tokyo airport

On November 23rd, Pope Francis landed in Japan at 17.25 PM (local hour), where he spent four days in Thailand, starting November 19th.  The Pope will remain in Japan until November 26th.

“I pray that Almighty God will guarantee you well-being and peace”: these are the words of Pope Francis to Carrie Lam, governor of Hong Kong. Thus in the telegram sent at the time of the overflight in the section that brings the pontiff from Bangkok to Tokyo. No explicit reference to the current crisis. Telegrams from the Pope also came to Xi Jinping, president of China and Tsai Ing-Wen, president of Taiwan. “Abundant blessings of peace and joy”, the wish addressed to the head of state of China. “I invoke abundant divine blessings of peace” in the text for Taiwan.

The Pope, visiting Japan, with the emperor Naruhito has dealt with issues related to the environment, especially the issue of water. The Pontiff, according to sources in the Imperial Palace, explained that it is difficult to solve the problem of the environment because it is linked to the economy. For Pope Francis the next war could be caused by a conflict over water.

The first official appointment is with the bishops of the Bishops’ Conference of Japan, which he met in the refectory of the pontifical representation. “I am very happy for the gift of visiting Japan and for the welcome you gave me,” said the Pope. “I don’t know if you know, but since I was young I felt sympathy and affection for these lands – he said – “Many years have passed since that missionary impulse, whose realization was long overdue. Today the Lord offers me the opportunity to be among you as a missionary pilgrim in the footsteps of great witnesses to the faith.”
