28 Maggio 2007: Tori Amos a Roma

Lunedì scorso sono stato a Roma per il mio terzo concerto della grande Tori Amos. Due ore e mezza di pura emozione, ha alternato pezzi vecchi a pezzi nuovi compresi nell’ultimo lavoro “American Doll Posse” che, ahime, devo ammettere non mi fa impazzire, a parte alcune eccezioni come Bouncing Off Clouds. Ho apprezzato molto l’inserimento in scaletta di alcune mie canzoni preferite come Crucify, Silent All These Years e Hey Jupiter.
La carica sensuale che Tori trasmette sul palco è davvero disarmante: lei in mezzo tra un pianoforte a coda e un fender rhodes, con l’incredibile talento di suonarli entrambi e nello stesso momento…davvero straordinaria!

Ecco la canzone con cui ha chiuso il concerto e che secondo me rimane tra le più belle della sua discografia:

“Hey Jupiter”

No one’s picking up the phone
Guess it’s me and me
And this little masochist
She’s ready to confess
All the things that i nerver thought
That she could feel and

Hey Jupiter
NOthings been the same
So are you gay
Are you blue
Thought we both could use a friend
To run to
And I thought you’d see with me
You wouldn’t have to be something new

Sometimes I breathe you in
And I know you know
And sometimes you take a swim
Found your writing on my wall
If my hearts soaking wet
Boy your boots ccan leave a mess

Hey Jupiter
NOthings been the same
So are you gay
Are you blue
Thought we both could use a friend
To run to
And I thought I wouldn’t have to keep
With you
Hiding

Thought I knew myself so well
All the dolls I had
Took my leather off the shelf
Your apocalypse was fab
For a girl who couldn’t choose between
The shower or the bath

And I thought I wouldn’t have to be
With you
A magazine

No one’s picking up the phone
Guess it’s clear he’s gone
And this little masochist
Is lifting up her dress
Guess I thought I could never feel
The things I feel
Hey Jupiter
