Le canzoni con il sorriso

Qualche giorno fa ho ordinato in Internet il nuovo album dei Beatles, Love. Nuovo si fa per dire, è l’ennesima riedizione di alcune delle loro più famose canzoni. Nella fattispecie, in questo album sono contenuti i brani utilizzati durante gli spettacoli del Cirque du Soleil, rimasterizzati per l’occasione con l’aggiunta di qualche nuova componente sonora.
Non so perchè l’ho comprato, questo album. Volevo regalarlo a mio padre, in effetti, che si lamenta di non avere mai un bel cd da ascoltare in macchina. Credo che i Beatles vadano più che bene, del resto sono una band dei suoi tempi.
Mentre il cd girava nel lettore mi sono chiesto se i Beatles mi sarebbero piaciuti, se fossi vissuto negli anni ’60. A sentirli oggi, sono un po’ come “il mito musicale” per i quali tutti andavano pazzi. Un gruppo che funge da esempio per le nuove generazioni. Una band le cui canzoni non sono mai invecchiate, ma hanno superato indenni il lento scorrere del tempo. Eppure erano solo 4 ragazzini che facevano canzonette pop.
Non so, non riesco a capire se alcune loro canzoni le trovi bellissime perchè lo sono davvero, oppure perchè il tempo le ha rese tali. Yesterday o Let it be avrebbero avuto per me lo stesso sapore se le avessi ascoltate in contemporanea alla loro uscita invece che quarant’anni dopo?

Comunque, ho avuto un lampo di piacere all’arrivo della traccia 18, Here comes the sun. Scritta dal compianto George Harrison invece che dalla classica accoppiata Lennon/McCartney, è probabilmente quella che nell’album mi ha trasmesso le emozioni più grandi. Ho gustato un lungo attimo di felicità, come se la gioia si fosse fatta prepotentemente largo tra quelle note.
Ho ripensato a tutte quelle canzoni che mi fanno lo stesso effetto. Ce n’è un ristretto gruppo, in effetti. Sono brani che mi strappano il sorriso anche nei momenti di tristezza. Lo fanno con la loro semplicità sonora, apparentemente banale ma per me così devastante.

Visto che ho un blog voglio rendere disponibile a tutti la mia personalissima lista di “canzoni con il sorriso”. Non è una lista completa, ovviamente. Ma è un punto di partenza. E chissà che non possa essere una scoperta per qualcuno di voi. Chissà che anche a voi queste canzoni non diano le stesse emozioni che danno a me, quell’irrefrenabile senso di pienezza unito ad una incontrollata voglia di sorridere.

PS: Per ascoltare i brani spegnete innanzitutto la radio nella colonna a destra (Premete Pause per stoppare il brano). Dopodichè premete play su uno dei brani qui sotto che volete ascoltare. Ricordate che prima di premere Play su un brano, dovete aver spento un altro brano! 🙂

  1. Wheen our reliable, low-cost, Black and Decker toaster oven started spewing smoke out-of its part, we started a search for something which would match on our cramkped counter.
    There were few options so we chosen a fresh Brevillee merchandise intending that the
    value might somehow be validated garnering any continually igh reviews.

    Somewhat dear, but you get what you buy. It is a great-looking toaster oven with a lott of functions.
    Individuals immediately notice that this is simply
    not just any toaster. The clean finish aand easy software, along with completely
    done bagels, gets this system 5 stars. HOWEVER,
    unlike most cheaper toaster cookers I’ve held, the Mini’s holder doesn’t slide out when you open the door.
    So be mindful eradicating sizzling food from the
    stove, or have a box handle nearby. In my own e-book,
    this subtracts a superstar.

    I ought to have obtained the Breville years ago instead
    of squandering money on those cheap toaster ovens that you replace over and over.
    It toasts, bakes, broils, does everything wonderful.

    Plus it looks great in my home. The tiny clever oven doesn’t take-up too much table area (I applied to have a toaster and a toaster
    oven, now one great appliance does it-all) although I’ve a galley NYC home.
    I bought an additional cord rack so I can use two levels at the same time.
    I enjoy the ‘somewhat more’ option should you just want something toasted or heated somewhat more.

    When our old Oster toaster oven gave out I needed
    seriously to locate another toaster would match that area.
    This is among the few that might do so, but there were no reviews yet for this model and all the warnings
    about how precisely hot these things access it the outside sounded scary.
    In the end, it’s thios that I ordered, and I’m very happy with it.
    It does not get any hotter compared to the old one did.
    The truth is, it appears cooler.

    It’s notably smaller compared to one I had before, but it satisfies thee pans from my old
    one and the within spsce is fine for your issues I devote it:
    many cuts oof thick make, sausages, and so forth. I do nott prepare
    entire roasts or anything that way inside the toaster oven since I’ve a gas
    range with the oven too. The time and heat controls with this
    unit actually work (rather than being a ticking count-down timer like my old toaster oven), and they are easy to realize and see, therefore I haven’t burned anything however.
    It is also pretty, at the least I think.

    It understands exactly how long to do it determined by if it’s toasting, baking,
    etc. The settings are easy-to control and work great. I don’t find the beeping noise that looks if the stove is done pre-heating and
    if it is done preparing also noisy or troubleswome
    in any respect as some revirwers have published. I
    never composee reviews,but that is hands-down a lot better than any toaster oven I’ve ever owned.
    It’s worth the investment.

    I disputed between thhe Compact and the Mini. I requiredd a toaster that I could put on my microwave.

    I was somewhat anxious the depth off tthe Mini may be ttoo much.
    It didn’t enable that the item synopsis states the dimensions of
    the Mini as BOTH 16x13x9 inches and 15.5x14x8.8 inches?
    The Mini happens to be smaller than-expected, as the door handle included ~2 inches.
    With that in your mind, the really footprint is nearer to 15.5×10.75 inches(
    Height 8.5 ins).

  2. With 17.4-inch of web-traffic coming directly from mibile in 2013
    alone, a 6% up-tick since 2012, it’s no surprise that more and more businesses
    are developing smart mobile advertising strategies to enhance brand-awareness.

    LinkedIn, still another primary social media company, released a similar warning late Tuesday, indicating that its sizzling growth rate
    could not continue — scarcely shocking, given the law of large numbers, but nevertheless
    a shock of cold water to people. LinkedIn stocks fell over 9 percent on

    To account for this drive toward cell, forecasts predict that for 2013, electronic ad spending will digest 22.7% of ad spending.
    And those pounds aren’t expended in vain, at the least not
    for these four corporations, each of which utilize mobile ad programs
    to focus on their clients and develop their customers.
    And with the arrival of Pinterest’s Pomoted Pins and Instagfam Advertisements, small businesses will have more ways than
    ever to attract followers.

    Perhaps most significant for Facebook’s future as an advertising-driven company inn a full world of
    iPads and Android smartphones, the company mentioned that cell advertys accounted for 49 percent of its advertising revenue, up fdom 41
    percent within thhe second-quarter. Facebook mentioned
    charges for cellular advertisements remained high,
    and in their media nouriszhes more frequently users were clicking on them.

    That bodes nicely, professionals claimed, because of its
    smaller rival, Twitter, which takes a equivalent
    approach to cellular adverts and is preparing to market stock to
    traders in an original giving the moment in a few days.
