Eugenio Finardi - Diesel

Recommended Posts









Mi piace mangiare ridere e bere
I like eating, laughing and drinking
prendere dalla vita quello che ha da dare
taking from life everything it has to offer
se mi piace fumare, non c’è niente di male
if I like smoking, there's nothing wrong about
stare per un poco ad osservare,
staying and observing for a while
e non mi piacciono le leggi ed i regolamenti
and I dislike laws and regulations
le dogane e i documenti
customs and documents
e tutto quello che non serve a niente
and all the useless stuff as well
altro che a controllare la gente.
and even less controlling people.

Mi piace pensare ed analizzare
I like thinking and analyzing
scegliere una musica con cui giocare
choosing a music I can play with
prendo una melodia, cerco una armonia
I take a song, I look for harmony
ci costruisco sopra la mia idea,
I build my ideas around it
e non mi piacciono i martiri nè i profeti
and I dislike martyrs and prophets
mi prendon male i furbi e i preti
sly people and priests irritate me
tutta gente che ha paura di fare
[and] all the people who are afraid of taking action
e si permette anche di criticare.
and has the nerve to criticize.

Mi piace guardare e fotografare
I like contemplating and taking pictures
cogliere una immagine da fissare
capturing an image to focus on
perché se dal futuro voglio avere dell’affetto
because if I want to have affection form the future
devo imparare a vivere il presente con rispetto,
I have to learn to live the present respectfully
e non mi piace chi mi dice di portar pazienza
and I dislike people who tell me to be patient
chi si fa strada con la violenza
those who make their way through violence
e chi sta lì dietro alla sua fede
and those who stay behind their faith
e non dubita mai di ciò che crede
and never doubt what they believe

Like an animal 








Tonight I don't want to go out, neither to meet people
No, don't worry, there's nothing wrong
I'm not looking to fight, I don't want to talk about it, trying to understand it
It's that tonight all I want is
To make love like an animal
I want to make love until it hurts
I want to make love, I want to make love


If you go there, have a drink and lock the door
Here under the blanket it's warm, even if it's raining outside
And this bit of sadness is nothing else than desire for tenderness
And tonight I only feel like
Making love like an animal
I want to make love until it hurts
I want to make love, I want to make love


I'll give you everything you want
If you had everything, you know, I'd give it to you
From today my dreams are yours
But don't ever leave me


Tonight I want to let my instincts guide me
I want to succeed to release all that's inside of me
I'm tired of thinking, I don't want to play a role
All I want tonight is
To make love like an animal
I want to make love
I want to make love

      Love it....Music & lyrics
      Look at it, Professor, how blond that is...

      This starry night disappearing into the dark

      Look at it as it runs away

      just the same as you look at that woman friend of mine

      I know way back when you made a killing with the ladies

      I'm not calling you "Professor" for nothing

      Tell me Professor about the Silence

      about the blue countryside, tell me about the absinth ( hallucinogeous
      plant and drink used in the beginning of the 20th century)

      tell me about those months where you were locked up in the mountains
      with your black basque as if it were Spain again ( talks about the
      civil war between supporters of fascist dictator Franco and
      Republicans coming from all over the world to help spanish people to
      re-gain freedom.. Franco won that time sadly.. around 1935-36)

      Just light up a fire..... when it comes to this you're the Best
       also for this I call you "Professor"

      Explain to me, Professor about a woman

      who knows you just like this flame

      they say you haven't forgotten her

      she then went away but never got married anyway

      And from that day on you got your heart knitted up

      Also for this I call you "Professor"

      But do not talk about me

      The emptiness you feel  exists

       it's not to be told

      We got stolen everything

      and what did  you do?

      In your home you'd keep giving milk to your cat

      I too will have the right to be the worst

      Please will you excuse me, "Professor"

      When I saw you arrive
      so beautiful as you are
      it did not seem possible to me  that with so many people around
      you'd  notice just  me
      it felt  like flying right here  in my room
       like in a dream more inside you
      I've known you forever and I' ve  loved you since no time
      Pretend you'll never leave me even though it will have to end sooner or later
      this long love story
      now it's already  late but it's still  early if you leave
      Pretend that it's  just for the two of us
       time  will go by but this long love story will not
      now it's already  late but it's still  early if you leave
       it's  too late but it's early if you leave

      Italian Band ( from Napoli/Naples, Campania Region) specialized in performing very old music and songs of the Naples tradition dating back to  1600 / 1700/ 1800 / 1900   using old instruments
      The Nuova Compagnia di Canto Popolare  was formed in 1970 with the aim of promoting the traditions of the people of Campania (the Southern Italian region of which Naples is the capital).The extraordinary success encountered at the Spoleto Festival in 1972 and 1974 marks their launch onto the international stage. Since then the NCCP frequently participated in all the most important festivals both within and outside Europe.
      The group has alternated its musical activities with theatre productions, promoting and participating in several shows.     umb's note: Saw them in concert like 35 years ago.......Very special
