Street Life – Randy Crawford – Musica spot Aperol Spritz 2010


La canzone che fa da colonna sonora alla pubblicità dell’Aperol Spritz l’ennesimo riarrangiamento di Ferdinando Arnò (Quiet!, please), il titolo originale è Street Life, brano del 1979 che Randy Crawford cantò insieme al gruppo The Crusaders.

Personalmente ricordo di averla sentita per la prima volta in Jackie Brown bellissimo film di Quentin Tarantino con Pam Grier, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Forster, Bridget Fonda, Michael Keaton e Robert De Niro.

Il testo di Street Life

I play the street life
Because there’s no place I can go
Street life
And it’s the only life I know
Street life
And there’s a thousand parts to play
Street life
Until you play your life away

You let the people see
Just who you want to be
And every night you shine
just like a super star
That’s how the life is played
A ten cent Masquerade
You dress, and walk, and talk
you’re who you think you are

Street life
You can run away from time
Street life
For a nickel and a dime
Street life
But you better not get old
Street life
Or you’re gonna feel the cold

There’s always love for sale
A grown-up fairy tale
Prince charming always smiles
behind a silver spoon
And if you keep it young
Your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way
beneath the silver moon
