With Latin percussion through out the song — a song with Spanish Flair – You must know how to dance to the Bossa Bass a Nova? If not you should take the time to learn, it’s just a two step – slow- quick quick 1-2 – Now that you got it, I know you got it – Let’s take it Uptown!
The question that I pose to you, “Did you ever have a love emergency?” Picture this-you just broke up with your significant other (yes, I have to be politically correct-what bullshit) and you feel unloved and you start to go into a depressive state. You think you are going to have a heart attack and you don’t know if you will survive without (Him or Her-LOL). What drugs can you take, your heart is palpitating, you might be ready to die!! Call the nurse, the doctor first-you are diagnosed that you need love urgently. As this is your love emergency.
A straight forward 4 quarter beat – with some nice back ground and chorus vocals. I fore see a great entertaining video to go along with this song., especially the way the lyric’s are written. I recently downloaded the whole new album, “This is My Life” on Soundcloud and some songs from Eclectic Collaborations and Aldo Buzzi “RAW”. Don’t know if you have ever been on Soundcloud? But it is a nice format for exposure.
Come on – Come on–was inspired by Paul McCartney’s Eygpt Station album -I enjoyed the back and forth guitar sounds from one of the title tracks, ” Come on to me”. I think you will hear that in the beginning of my song if you compare the two. Obviously by no way am I comparing myself to such an accomplished and ground breaking artist of one of the founding fathers of the Beatles. Although the influences are there and I would say any inspirations from any artist helps develop more songs and music is a great thing! (I hope Paul would appreciate that point) – The words are an anthem to being yourself and not caring what anyone else (or the Establishment) Thinks – Enjoy, “Come On Come On”
Sex & Train wrecks
With its 2 bar cowbell intro ‘Sex & Trainwrecks’
might have gone in a different direction but, true to form, it quickly
becomes familiar Aldo Buzzi fare. The tune takes a melancholy theme
and punctuates it rhythmically with a post-punk architecture and a
Caribbean undertone. As regards the lyrics the listener asks who
are the victims? The rule of ‘poetic license’ is applied heavily and
as always in Aldo’s material there may not be any ‘straight line’ lyrical
commentary – whereas one might associate the sound of a train wreck with a cacophony of screeching, crushing and twisting metal this track maintains
a steady rhythmic 4/4 beat -train wrecks are probably not agreeable to
The intertwining instrumental layering is familiar and against the cadence
of the lyrics we are met with an Edgar Allen Poe-esque tapestry of the
dead possibly dreaming and the question answers itself by asking if
the dead still dream. It’s an interesting set-up of superpositions
as our subjects appear (at least in the words) to be both dead and alive.
Thus a moderately tempered tune has more depth than the main thematic
material implies. This listener found it a little trancy and ‘retro’ – I hear
‘post punker’ ghosts responding and the outro of this tune is in lock-step
with the very movement that gave it life. – Joezworld June 2019
Sex an Trainwrecks
When you’re in the coffin of life. What do you dream when you’re feet under?
This Is My Life
A straightforward tune that might be
its own anthem asserting: “this is your moment”
and fortifying its message with a strong double-
tracked main vocal. There appears to be some
beat anomalies though one never knows if these
are intentionally placed or artifacts from a rebellious
effect plug or two.
The instrumental break is sparse and somewhat disembodied
and the lyrics perhaps a bit redundant. The sound is more
’neo-garage’ then it is ‘recording studio’ polished but allowances
should always be made as this is part of the ‘appeal’ of Buzzi’s
One wonders if the author was up against a deadline
(self-imposed or otherwise)to complete it – There’s ‘more to this life’
than we are given here both thematically and stylistically.
Perhaps the entertainment adage to
‘always leave the audience wanting more’ has been employed
here with skilled hands (and ears) and for those die-hard fans
of Buzzi’s music out there ‘This Is My Life’ might be
the sonnet they’ve been waiting for. – JoeZworld
The Title Track “This is My Life”
You may ask –Is this the women in Aldo Buzzi’s life???
That I will leave up to your imagination. But, on the other hand…….
