Ludovico Einaudi


I heard Einaudi's I Giorni ('The Days') on the radio yesterday. Of course, I like most piano pieces, but this one I knew I liked immediately. It's beautiful~~. I'd never heard of Einaudi before, so have been trying to find out some things about him and this particular piece of music. According to one review:

The inspiration for Ludovico Einaudi's I Giorni was a 12th-century folk song from Mali about a hippopotamus who was cherished by the residents of a nearby village but killed by a hunter. "The song," writes Einaudi in his succinct liner note, "is sung as a lament for the death of a king or a great person or for the loss of a loved one."

His music is inspired by both Satie and Nyman (apparently). It's music to wind down to and let wash over you. The kind of music that makes you want to learn the piano just to be able to play this piece...

But now I have no piano... Do I have to wait till Christmas to play it??

Le monde

Je pense bien que le monde est calculé
Je pense bien que tout est encadré
Que nos pensées sont tracées dans l'air auparavant
Et tu crois que la derniere prise
Elle a mis du ??? à ta douleur
Ouvre les yeux le monde change
Ah oui je sais qu'un jour
Ah oui je sais qu'un jour
Pour voir plus clair
Tu dois oublier tous les mensonges
Ah le monde change, le monde change
Soulage ton coeur, soulage ton ame
Ah le monde change
Et tu crois que la derniere prise
Elle a mis du temps à ??
Ta douleur, ta douleur
Demain est une autre sortie
Ca fait mal à dire mais j'ai peur, j'ai peur, j'ai peur
Ah le monde change, le monde change
Soulage ton coeur, soulage ton ame
Ah le monde change, le monde change...

I like that 'ca fait mal a dire mais j'ai peur...'

This is a good song, hope you like it!!

Yes, I do like it.

'Pour voir plus clair tu dois oublier tous les mensonges...'
'Demain est une autre sortie'.

Listening to music like Einaudi's lets you forget the lies and think only peaceful thoughts.
