Dark was the night - Compilation

Dark was the night – Compilation

L’organizzazione internazionale Red Hot, fondata nel 1989 con l’esclusiva finalità di raccogliere fondi per la lotta alla diffusione dell’AIDS attraverso la cultura pop, ha espletato puntualmente la sua azione attraverso compilation musicali a cadenza annuale, che hanno spesso coinvolto artisti mondiali di prim’ordine. La prima raccolta, “Red Hot + Blue” resta forse tuttora la più conosciuta, anche grazie a una delle ultime splendide interpretazioni degli U2, che per l’occasione reinterpretavano il classico di Coal Porter “Night And Day”. A quella raccolta ne sono seguite tante altre, quasi sempre “a tema” e popolate da più di un nome di grido, fino a quest’ultima, per la quale sono state fatte decisamente le cose in grande, così da celebrare degnamente il ventennale dell’organizzazione.
Il risultato è l’imponente doppio cd intitolato “Dark Was The Night” che, edito dalla prestigiosa etichetta 4AD, promette di emulare i fasti della prima compilation, raccogliendo in oltre due ore di musica tanti degli artisti più validi e in vista del mondo latamente “indie”, che contribuiscono con pezzi inediti e collaborazioni talvolta ardite.

Justin Vernon Aaron Dessner – Big Red Machine (Lyrics)

We were safe when love would come in
Wearied my mind, saw relief
Well, the earth is but a sad fucked up and puked up big dismay
And we resolved to swim around in circles, so slowly

Those cents, you said you sent me
Are rolling alone
Burning truth along in one light
For I’m feeling sad

((((So many killed!))))

We’re running their engine
Just like we ought to be, for them, real hard
Could I quitted on or bought in?
The sorry might do it
But I’ve moved on with more life in me
Big, red, machine

‘Cause all I’ve learned is to suffer
‘Cause all I’ve learned is to suffer
‘Cause all I’ve learned is to suffer
