Le perle di Vitalogy

Per rallegrare la mattinata ho ascoltato Vitalogy dei Pearl Jam. Nel pomeriggio ho cercato del materiale per conoscere meglio la storia dell’album, ho esaminato con più attenzione i testi senza trascurare le traduzioni e, per puro caso, ho letto l’anno di pubblicazione: dicembre 1994. Pensate un po’… casualmente ho scoperto che il prossimo mese si festeggia il compleanno dell’album.

Il gruppo dei Pearl Jam, dall’album Vitalogy, ha estratto e pubblicato tre singoli: Spin the black circle, Not for you e Immortality. Questi sono i testi:
 
SPIN THE BLACK CIRCLE
See this needle a see my hand
Drop, drop, dropping it down, oh, so gently
Well here it comes I touch the plane
Turn me up won't turn you away
Spin, spin, spin the black circle
Spin, spin, spin the black, spin the black
Spin, spin, spin the black circle
Spin, spin, whoa
Pull it out a paper sleeve 
Oh, my joy only you deserve conceit 
I'm so big a-my whole world
I'd rather you rather you than her
Spin, spin, spin the black circle
Spin, spin, spin the black, spin the black
Spin, spin, spin the black circle
Spin, spin, whoa, oh
You're so warm, oh, the ritual, when I lay down your crooked arm
Spin, spin, spin the black circle
Spin, spin, spin the black, spin the black
Spin, spin, spin the black circle
Spin, spin, spin the black circle
Spin the black circle, spin, spin

NOT FOR YOU

Restless soul, enjoy your youth
Like Muhammad hits the truth
Can't escape from the common rule
If you hate something, don't you do it too, too
Small my table, a-sets just two
Got so crowded, I can't make room
Oh, where did they come from? Stormed my room!
And you dare say it belongs to you, to you
This is not for you
Oh, not for you, ah, you
scream my friends don't call me
 friends, no they don't scream
my friends don't call my friends don't
All that's sacred comes from youth
Dedication, naive and true
With no power, nothing to do
I still remember, why don't you, don't you
This is not for you
Oh, never was for you, fuck you
This is not for you
Oh, this is not for you, yeah, you
This is not for you
Oh, not for you
Oh, you
 
IMMORTALITY
Vacate is the word vengeance has no place on me or her
Cannot find the comfort in this world
Artificial tear,  vessel stabbed,  next up, volunteers
Vulnerable, wisdom can't adhere
A truant finds home and a wish to hold on
But there's a trapdoor in the sun, immortality
As privileged as a whore victims in demand for public show
Swept out through the cracks beneath the door
Holier than thou, how?
Surrendered executed anyhow
Scrawl dissolved, cigar box on the floor
A truant finds home and a wish to hold on to
But saw the trapdoor in the sun
Immortality
I cannot stop the thought running in the dark
Coming up a which way sign all good truants must decide
Oh, stripped and sold, mom auctioned forearm
And whiskers in the sink
Truants move on cannot stay long
Some die just to live, oh
