Velvet

Exhilarating pissing off from the Roman combo at all boybands manufactured sh**.
You can't understand the words maybe, but you can neverthless laugh with us and them! :)
This song is one of the most successful in Italian
summer and it shows the love Italian pop/rock groups have got in britpop style.
This is a new combo from Roma and they are called Velvet and other than this
catchy song they have got also a wonderful ballad able to show a more mature side of them.
Go search in MP3s this song!!!!

Italian lyrics

Obiettivi di un'estate, ahah-ahah-ah-ah-ah-ah
di esplosioni addominali:
e dovrei abbronzarmi un po',
scatenarmi nei dance clubs...
eliminare le occhiaie...

Manco di concentrazione,
non ho volonta'.. wow!

Soffro lo stress , io soffro lo stress
sono stanco e fuori forma:
suono in una boyband, suono in una boyband?!
Ci deve essere un errore...

Soffro lo stress, io soffro lo stress
faccio un passo ed ho il fiatone...
Suono in una boyband, suono in una boyband,
mi manca il senso del pudore!

Negativi di un'estate, ahaha, ahaha, ah-aha-ahah
Io riprendo il mio colore;
e dovrei curarmi un po',
modellare il fisico...
espressioni da migliorare...

Vitamine a profusione,
creme a volonta'... wow!

Soffro lo stress , io soffro lo stress
sono stanco e fuori forma:
suono in una boyband, suono in una boyband?!
Ci deve essere un errore...

Soffro lo stress, io soffro lo stress
faccio un passo ed ho il fiatone...
Suono in una boyband, suono in una boyband,
mi manca il senso del pudore!

Soffro lo stress , io soffro lo stress
sono stanco e fuori forma:
suono in una boyband, suono in una boyband?!
Mi manca il senso del pudore...

Soffro lo stress, io soffro lo stress
faccio un passo ed ho il fiatone...
Suono in una boyband, suono in una boyband,
ci DEVE essere un errore!!!

And here's the english translation...

Aims for the summer, ahah aha.. ahaha, aha-aha
of abdominal explosions

And I'd get tanned a bit,
getting lost in dancing clubs,
get rid of from shadows under eye...

I'm having lack of focusing,
I've got no will enough.. wow!

I'm suffering from stress, I suffer from stress,
I'm tired and out of shape,
I'm playin in a boyband?! playin in a boyband...
There must be some mistake?

I'm suffering from stress, I suffer from stress,
I take a step and I am well out of breath,
I'm playin in a boyband?! playin in a boyband...
I really have got no feel of modesty!

Negatives from the summer, ahah aha.. ahah, aha-aha
I'm getting back my old skin colour

and I should care a bit more of myself,
I'd to define my body shape...
all these facial expression to get better...

Vitamines in plenty,
loads of creams around...wow!

I'm suffering from stress, I suffer from stress,
I'm tired and out of shape,
I'm playin in a boyband?! playin in a boyband...
There must be some mistake?

I'm suffering from stress, I suffer from stress,
I take a step and I am well out of breath,
I'm playin in a boyband?! playin in a boyband...
I really have got no feel of modesty!

I'm suffering from stress, I suffer from stress,
I'm tired and out of shape,
I'm playin in a boyband?! playin in a boyband...
I really have got no feel of modesty!

I'm suffering from stress, I suffer from stress,
I take a step and I am well out of breath,
I'm playin in a boyband?! playin in a boyband...
There must be some mistake?

What 's really nice in "Boyband" though it's the irony of it.
I won't tell about the video which is a fantastic piss off about corporated music products
(other than you should see it.. I'd post a link but generally it doesn't work, at MTV.it
video section: try to click on Boyband if you see it and cross fingers:) )
The song speaks about all the plan about "getting fitter and cooler" anyone of us uses
to make when we are on the verge of a new season, and here before it's summer.

It's all so superficial of course, and it's said with itching sarcasm, while
the edge of all fake aims seems to sum up for the singer while he recognize not only
he's out of force when everyone should be more active , but he even sings.. for a boyband!

It's the metaphore of a life wasted and pretentious...

so summer passes, and all seems faded, but not the will to get better.
Like that saying "Oh.. next year though I'll be in shape by time" it seems there's
an entire fall for getting fitter again..
pity that he keeps on feeling out of forces, poor him.. he still be in a boyband!

Hear it.. the trumpets at end are so cute too!!!!! :)

This is the Official Velvet's site: Click and enjoy! (Note: it's in Italian)

Pierfrancesco, the bass player in the band thinks he'squite resembling Damon Albarn of Blur.. what do you think seeing the band's pic below?
Can you recognize who's him?

What I appreciate the most about Italian pop/rock groups is that when they get inspired from some foreign trend they admit it when that was hip, and they still admit it even when the music they got inspired from starts to get trashed from abroad critics.

"Britpop was and still be to us a very important model: that's happy music which is not created to sell, but which is created to express someone's souls. It's vibe, life, joy, football, shit and mess all together, it's love and passion and we will always love that, whether is supposed to be cool or not!"
