We have a big world full of talents

She is called Giordana Angi, one of the talented participants at “Amici” Tv Show broadcasted by Canale 5 in Italy. Focusing not on the TV show but on the figure of this very talented singer and on one of the songs created by her, we aim to highlight what is most essential and interesting from this phenomenon on which we can learn a lot.

In addition to being charming, very restrained with a wonderful voice for the modern scene of Italian pop song she is a songwriter of some of the songs she performed. Among them we chose the one she sang at the end of her show, meaning the role she gave this song. When announced that this song was dedicated to her father maybe only a few had the full idea of it. Especially those who did not attend the previous shows were surely surprised.

The lyrics of the song are as following:

Testo Quante Volte Ad Aspettarti

Adesso qui davanti c’è tua figlia
Che stringe la tua mano
Prova a rompere il silenzio
Silenzio che è passato
Come l’acqua sotto i ponti
Per tutti questi anni
Quanti anni
Perché non me li racconti?Adesso che non c’è più niente da capire

Ti guardo dentro gli occhi e gli occhi non sanno mentire
Com’erano i capelli di mia madre da ragazza
Com’erano quei baci sotto il sole di un bel cielo in una piazza
Quante volte ad aspettarti e tu
Dov’eri?
Quante notti sveglia e tu
Non c’eri

Avrei dovuto stringerti più forte senza mai lasciarti andare
Avrei voluto un bacio a mezzanotte il giorno prima di Natale
Farti capire che ho bisogno di mio padre

Adesso che ti sto guardando in faccia
E che sulla mia strada dei tuoi passi non c’è ancora traccia
Sarebbe stupido provare del rancore
Un seme resta un seme e chi lo pianta
Lo fa sempre per amore
Quante volte ad aspettarti e tu
Dov’eri?
Quante notti sveglia e tu non c’eri

Avrei dovuto stringerti più forte senza mai lasciarti andare
Avrei voluto un bacio a mezzanotte il giorno prima di Natale
Farti capire che ho bisogno di mio padre

E mi chiedo se ci pensi a volte ai primi passi
Che muovevo da bambina dentro ai tuoi vent’anni
Quanto tempo che è passato
Te ne rendi conto?
Che tua figlia adesso è grande e gira per il mondo
Quante volte ad aspettarti in quella casa vuota
Ma sapevo immaginare solo la tua schiena che si allontanava
Senza dire niente
Niente

Avrei dovuto stringerti più forte senza mai lasciarti andare
Avrei voluto un bacio a mezzanotte il giorno prima di Natale
Farti capire che ho bisogno di mio padre

Avrei bisogno di essere più forte invece resto qui a guardare
Avrei bisogno di tirare fuori quello che non riesco a dire
Per smettere di stare male
Di stare male

E adesso che non c’è più niente da capire
Ti guardo dentro gli occhi
E gli occhi non sanno mentire

It doesn’t need any comment, though you cannot enjoy the lyrics of the song after the translation into Albanian. The song focuses on the feeling of a child that has grown without father and hits exactly the most viral phenomenon of our life: Divorce.Although the lyrics are an integral part of the song’s value, let’s look at the analytic look at music: It consists of two elements of the early tradition of Italian singing: the Recitation and what we can call “aria,” or “refrain”, or song.There are two integral components of the Italian song whose composers have successfully used it in various and interesting ways. We may recall Renato Zero with his “Magari” single or Mia Martini “”Uomini non cambiano” and dozens of other examples. Each of them is keeping a different distance between the word spoken and the singing one. This phenomenon has served as a lifetime as an element that allows the event to be shown to go to the part where music takes the power to display exactly what is capable of performing better than any other art: emotions and inner human feelings. Grown and nurtured in this Italian cultural area Giordana Angi naturally absorbs this cultural world, and perhaps even consciously she preserves it to add to her talent, her life difficulties, which flows simply and naturally as true talent flows. But she knows how to feel the moments of tension in the linearity of the lyrics that she writes and harmonizes naturally with the melodic curve to then come as naturally to the culmination in a way that conquers all, emotions and makes for one another in one way that she only knows how to do it. The more you listen to the single, the more you get involved.  You may distinguish the intelligent elements in the melody or the combination of words, or even in the voice of the singer at certain and significant moments.

The Giordana recitative (listed above in italics) relies on a four-note melodic bulb used with a lot of savings in their combination and at the same time filled with repetition where the articulation of the word prevails. Then its recital approaches the true melody (Note above in plain-letters) thus making the melting between the two modes of singing (what we call the verse and the refrain).

Refrain strikes from the top of the registry with the same sounds (Mi, fa #, sol la) in a narrow range that resembles an automatic weapon’s bullet hail at the heart of the problem. There are grades so close that it cannot be thought that they can form a staggering moment but it is here that talent is released to do the impossible and to set up the “beautiful” pedestal in the art, the particular, and the wise worth standing outside of the useless habit.

There is no point in discussing where our pop song stands. The important thing is that we should probably learn a lot more from the recent developments of Italian song which as magnetically absorb us to enter its vast, of different kind and infinite world with wonderful elements of wisdom, patience and human talent. Facing this great world of talents, we need to look at the education of young people with real values.
