Love and its derivatives (all of the songs of the Pageant)

Like on the Verona Area, the place the outdated glories of Dj Tv parade on TV in September, to ‘play’ the songs of the subsequent Sanremo Italian Tune Pageant – a preview for the press, in order that it could actually discuss and write about it – c ‘ is Massimo Alberti on the console. It is 10.30 on Monday 16 January and nothing will ever be the identical once more (exaggerating).

“Let’s begin with a bit by Earth, Wind & Fireplace,” says Amadeus, however it’s a joke. Within the Rai studios in through Mecenate in Milan, the place Fabio Fazio meets the entire world, all twenty-eight songs chosen by the creative director from among the many greater than 5 hundred acquired are listened to in sequence. Amadeus will repeat it shortly thereafter, within the temporary closing press convention (throughout which Madame’s false vaccination will dictate): he chooses based mostly on the falling in love that comes from the songs, and assessments their worth by imagining them on the radio. «It’s my coronary heart that makes me perceive what can work – he says – and solely time will inform if I’ve chosen nicely or not». That Sanremo mechanism whereby the competing items should be unpublished, within the sense of by no means carried out in public (and subsequently whoever desires to strive once more will definitely not come and allow us to hear them) deprives us of the curiosity to know what the opposite 4 hundred and seventy-two had been like. As a result of some doubts that between 4 hundred and seventy-two songs there was higher – with all due respect to the selector – as soon as we listened to the final one we received.


We can not report a single phrase of the texts as a result of the Pageant, roughly because the Pageant, indicators an unique with Sorrisi e Canzoni TV, a weekly present that took the group picture even within the days of Covid, utilizing Photoshop. Not having the ability to say something, we are going to make ourselves understood with gestures. Within the ‘Sure’ part – those we like, but in addition those we do not like however we predict they are going to like – on the Sanremo 2023 Pageant the Article 31s may make impression, which within the autobiographical ‘A pleasant journey‘ they lay naked, telling one another from the desires of youth to the errors of the presumed maturity (observe for the historians of the Pageant: among the many authors of the music there’s Daniele Silvestri). ‘Whenever you’re out of breath‘ is a rock-ballad on the father-son relationship, and the son is Gianluca Grignani, a mix that might go away its mark.

There isn’t a Achille Lauro, there’s Rosa Chemical, which seems to be an excessive amount of like him. The enjoyable/provocative hammer known as ‘Made in Italy‘ beats, extra incorrectly, as in ‘Dove si balla’. Tananai (sic) and Marco Mengoni, on the antipodes of singing, carry remnants of on a regular basis life in ‘Tango‘ – the primary, good plasticized sluggish one as is trendy at the moment – and ‘Two lives‘, an intimate reflection that turns into a certainty (rating: 10 francs on first place). Woman of the controversy, no-vax repentant (?), Madame performs with adverbs within the painful and rhythmic ‘The great within the dangerous‘ (10 francs on third place). How lovely is the stamp of Aries, which with Calcutta and Dardust wrote ‘Sea of ​​hassle‘, the very best LGBT+ episode of this version. Sure to Anna Oxa, for consistency of proposal and since ‘Salts‘ is, nostalgically, the standard ‘Sanremo’.


Mentioned with ache in my coronary heart, ‘Dangerous phrases‘ just isn’t ‘Di sole e d’azzurro’ and Giorgia appears to get harm. Colapesce Dimartino, right here Baptists, sound much less mild in ‘Splash‘, and after listening it stays like this, “with out swallowing or spitting” (cit. Baglioni Claudio, storyteller). The radios will play three quarters of LDA, the D’Alessio son who sings ‘If then tomorrow‘ (the nì is as a result of they are going to play it on the radio); the identical goes for Lazza, with ‘Ash‘. Sitting on the piano, Ultimo sings’Dawn‘, decrease in affect than ‘Your particulars’, however it might be sufficient (10 francs on second place, once more, like Toto Cutugno).

No for ‘go away me‘ dei Modà, for the aforementioned ‘Two‘ by Elodie (however just for the accent), for ‘The farewell‘ by Coma_Cose (10 francs, with none emotional transport, in fourth place), for Leo Gassmann who sings the ‘Third coronary heart‘ – swish poetic instinct (weighted by the association) of the chief of the Tactical Penguins – and for Mara Sattei who sings Damiano of the Måneskin in ‘Two thousand minutes‘, which isn’t dynamite. Paola and Chiara sing ‘Fury‘ within the identify of dance, and the ‘nì’ is for profession. Shari sings with lovely timbre ‘The egocentric‘ and among the many carneades of Sanremo Giovani “she received there” (cited by Ventura Simona, showgirl).


Nation Cousins ​​sing ‘Letter 22‘, written by the Consultant of the record, and one wonders why (not for good authors); Levante and its “erotic dream” drown within theI dwell‘. There would even be the ‘Dunno’ class, those that haven’t remained in our heads even when they’ve billions of views, even when with Sanremo Giovani they’ve grow to be Massive “and we aren’t a c ****” (cited by Del Grillo Marquis, Roman nobleman, 1714-1787). And as an alternative, who is aware of: between Gianmaria (‘Monster‘), Mr Rain (‘Tremendous heroes‘), Sethu (‘Misplaced causes‘), Ollie (‘Mud‘), Will (‘Silly‘) and Colla Zio (‘I don’t really feel like‘, which nonetheless is catchy and will grow to be ‘Nì’), there might be “the brand new Eros Ramazzotti”, an expression as abused as “La casalinga di Voghera” (cited Arbasino Alberto, author, and in addition Placido Beniamino, journalist, who of the housewife disputed paternity).
