ALANIS MORISSETTE in plina voga si oaspete pe 4 Iulie 2008 la Bucuresti !


Paseam hotarul celor 20 de ani incarcati de promisiuni, proiecte, zvacniri si asteptari, cand am cunoscut prima oara vocea speciala si cantecele delicatei ALANIS MORRISSETTE, care era pe atunci inca o adolescenta rebela, cu pletele in vant. Inca de atunci mi-am propus sa urmaresc evolutia artistica a acestei fermecatoare fete cu o chitara si cu o voce de aur. Recunosc ca sensibilitatea, simplitatea si firescul ei, mesajul transmis direct spre suflet ma duc cu gandul la talentata ADA MILEA noastra, a romanilor.
Dar intre timp anii au trecut in zbor si iata ce-am aflat rasfoind agenda de evenimente culturale din aceasta vara...

Cantareata canadiana Alanis Morissette va sustine un concert in prima zi a festivalului B'ESTFEST, care se desfasoara in aer liber, in complexul ROMEXPO din Bucuresti, pe 4, 5, 6 si 11 Iulie, informeaza organizatorii evenimentului, Emag!c Entertainment.

Alanis Morissette vine astfel pentru prima data in Romania, ea urmand sa concerteze in prima zi a festivalului B'estfest, pe 4 Iulie, alaturi de Cypress Hill, UNKLE si Apollo 440.


Sometimes is never quite enough
If you're flawless, then you'll win my love
Don't forget to win first place
Don't forget to keep that smile on your face

Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You've got to measure up
And make me prouder

How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

Be a good girl
You've gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn't good enough
To make us proud

I'll live through you
I'll make you what I never was
If you're the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him compared to her
I'm doing this for your own damn good
You'll make up for what I blew
What's the problem...why are you crying

Be a good boy
Push a little farther now
That wasn't fast enough
To make us happy
We'll love you just the way you are
If you're perfect

Cantareata si compozitoare de origine canadiana, Alanis Morissette si-a facut debutul in lumea muzicii la varsta de zece ani, cand a inregistrat primul single din cariera - "Fate Stay With Me". La 14 ani a semnat primul contract cu o casa de discuri, iar in 1991 a lansat albumul "Alanis", al carei succes i-a adus discul de platina in Canada si un Juno Award (Grammy-ul canadian), la categoria "cea mai promitatoare interpreta".

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...don't you think
A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

How bout getting off of these antibiotics
How bout stopping eating when I'm full up
How bout them transparent dangling carrots
How bout that ever elusive kudo

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How bout me not blaming you for everything
How bout me enjoying the moment for once
How bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
How bout grieving it all one at a time

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down

How bout no longer being masochistic
How bout remembering your divinity
How bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How bout not equating death with stopping

Thank you India
Thank you providence
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you nothingness
Thank you clarity
Thank you thank you silence

Te astept cu drag sa pasesti pe pamant romanesc, ALANIS MORISSETTE !

Alanis Morrisette este un cântec chinuit dispersat concentric, precum undele provocate de căderea unei pietre în mijlocul lacului. Se vede că opera sa este de canto-autor, se vede originea Canadiană... se simte însă cel mai mult căutarea. Faptul că încă îşi poate păstra prospeţiemea, denotă că acea căutare a înţelesului exhaustiv nu a fost încheiată, sensul nu o mulţumeşte. Viaţa ei are o anumită cadenţă, un ciclic care se întâmplă o dată la doi sau trei ani, de unde deduc o perioadă de acumulare între manifestările schimbării.
Ceea ce mi s-a părut interesant la Alanis este că, deşi are zeci de premii, nu are statut de divă. Apariţia ei simplă, concentrată şi interiorizată, probabil că nu o va putea desprinde niciodată în glamour, trenduri şi producţie de masă.

Asa este, cantul revarsat de Alanis Morissette este ca tipatul de pescarus in inaltul cerului, iar simplitatea si naturaletea interpretarii, care vin din adancul fiintei ei delicate, o apropie si mai mult de stele...
