30/7/14 – Drupi – Vado Via – 1973/1977

Video Of The Day

Song Of The Day

Drupi 1975A surprise hit (No.17)In England in 1973, originally entered into the San Remo song festival where it finished last, here’s former plumber Drupi miming Vado Via to a live audience in 1977.

I always loved this song, the melody, his voice, the bass part, the female backing vocals, the strings, the sound of the words, even though I didn’t know what they meant. (See below for a translation).

Why did I post this now? Today I picked up a copy of the album  Drupi (1974) – 4o years later.

questa volta ho deciso che vado,
Ma perché non me l´hai detto tu,
di non poterne più
Dentro a quel mezzo sorriso
un po’ spento ho scoperto i difetti che hai
Ma come avrei potuto amarti mai?
Giuro che..
Vado via, casa tua più non c´è
E’ meglio se io ti lascio,
adesso che posso, ti lascio
Non son più quel ragazzo che sai,
ma non avrei ripensamenti mai..
Giuro che…
vado via… casa tua più non c´è…
E´ meglio se…
Tremo, sul confine di un mondo sereno
il mio viaggio finisce con te,
Ma come avrei potuto amare te?
Giuro che…
vado via… casa tua più non c´è.
E’ meglio se io ti lascio, adesso che posso
Ti lascio adesso che posso…
ti lascio, ti lascio
Adesso che posso ti lascio

English

I go away

This time I have decided to go
but why didn`t you tell me
that you can`t stand it any longer
within that half-smile
a bit dull, I discovered the defects you have
but how could I ever love you?
I swear that…
I go away, your home is no longer
It`s better if I leave you
now that I can, I leave you
I am no longer the guy you know
but I would never have second thoughts
I swear that…
I go away, your home is no longer
It`s better if…
I tremble on the edge of a quiet world
my journey ends with you
but how could I love you?
I swear that…
I go away…your home is no longer
It`s better if I leave you, now that I can
I leave you now that I can
I leave you, I leave you
Now that I can I leave you
