Recensione: ANNA OF THE NORTH – Dream Girl

Anna Of The North è una dream girl.

Un beat elettro pop accattivante,  melodie sognanti e una inclinazione a realizzare liriche intime ma universalmente condivisibili questi sono i suoi punti di forza. 

Nel secondo capitolo della carriera, la ventottenne norvegese Anna Lotterud (il suo vero nome), è in pieno fermento creativo e con il totale controllo del suo lavoro.

Il risultato sta proprio nell’individualità, nel cercare di comprendere cosa significhi essere una donna al giorno d’oggi, di come le relazioni sentimentali non debbano definire la persona che sei e, infine, di quanto sia fondamentale essere soddisfatti dei risultati ottenuti solo grazie a se stessi.

I suoi pezzi hanno melodie pop ben articolate, leggere e sognanti. Un po’ Natalia Imbruglia, un po’ Alanis Morissette, un po’  Taylor Swift. 
Ascoltare la sua musica è come sognare, come farsi trasportare in una dimensione fatta di amore, di sentimenti e di vita quotidiana. 

Facciamoci affascinare dalla ragazza del nord con le orecchie a punta. 
Forse un angelo in mezzo ad un universo ruvido e insofferente?

Tre brani da ascoltare subito:  Dream Girl –  Time To Get Over It – Used To Be

Quotes: 

I’m always walking to the same old place
Just in case I see your face
I’m gonna buy a drink and while I wait
I’ma eat my cake, make the same mistakes
I know that you don’t think that I can be the one
But I can be your one
I may be acting crazy now
It’s getting late
They took my heart away
But I’ll be okay, ’cause

In my dream world
I’m still your dream girl
No if, buts, or maybes
I’m still your baby

Ooh, I’m still your dream girl
Ooh, I’m still your dream girl

Sometimes I like to get a little drunk
Just to have some fun and be no one
I kinda like the girl that I become
When I’m all alone
Since you been gone
But now I’m calling you at 3 AM
To speak to you again
I may be acting crazy now
It’s way too late
You took my heart away
But I’ll be okay, ’cause

In my dream world
I’m still your dream girl
No if, buts, or maybes
I’m still your baby
In my dream world
I’m still your dream girl
No if, buts, or maybes
I’m still your baby

Ooh, I’m still your dream girl
Ooh, I’m still your dream girl
Ooh, I’m still your dream girl
Da-da-da-da-da-da
Ooh, I’m still your dream girl
Da-da-da-da-da-da

Ooh, I’m still your dream girl
Da-da-da-da-da-da
Ooh, I’m still your dream girl
La-la-la-da-da-da
La-la-la-da-da-da

(Dream Girl )

All I wanted was for you to stick around
But I understand that you have things to do
Told myself that I was gonna be just fine
Wished that I could still be somewhere close to you

All this time, time, time
I’m still thinking of you

Running ‘round
Upside down
Wherever you go
You got my love
Left or right
Side to die
Wherever you go
You got my love

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
You got my love
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
You got my love

I know that you were never really mine to keep
You had other plans, bigger dreams to reach
If I never see you back here on the streets
Know I’ll always keep you somewhere close with me

All this time, time, time
I’m still thinking of you

Running ‘round
Upside down
Wherever you go
You got my love
Left or right
Side to die
Wherever you go
You got my love

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
You got my love
Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
You got my love

Oh
The distance between us
Is big every day
I still remember
Who you are
What you are

Running ‘round
Upside down
Wherever you go
You got my love
Left or right
Side to die
Wherever you go
You got my love

(My Love)

Now you’re spending all your money on the things you don’t need
When all that really makes you happy are the things you can’t see
Our shit shouldn’t be this hard, you know that love is for free
So come and spend a little time on me
Remember how we used to be
Remember how we used to be

Tell me, tell me how you’re really feeling
It used to be so good between us
I won’t tell your mama or your brother or your cousin or no one else
When did shit become so complicated?
I know what you’re going through

This can’t be serious
I must be delirious

Now you’re spending all your money on the things you don’t need
When all that really makes you happy are the things you can’t see
Our shit shouldn’t be this hard, you know that love is for free
So come and spend a little time on me
Remember how we used to be

Tell me, tell me how you’re really doing
Did you graduate? Did you make it out-of-state?
How’s your sister? Do you miss her?
Do you miss me or someone else?
Tell me when the future got so faded
Where do you think we’re going, me and you?

This is serious
And I feel delirious

Now you’re spending all your money on the things you don’t need
When all that really makes you happy are the things you can’t see
Our shit shouldn’t be this hard, you know that love is for free
So come and spend a little time on me
Remember how we used to be

(How you spend your time)
(How you spend your time)
(How you spend your time)
(How you spend your time)
Remember how we used to be
(How you spend your time)
(How you spend your time)
Remember how we used to be

Now you’re spending all your money on the things you don’t need
(Now we chasing, now we chasing, remember how)
When all that really makes you happy are the things you can’t see
(Now we chasing, now we chasing, remember how)
Our shit shouldn’t be this hard, you know that love is for free
(Now we chasing, now we chasing, remember how)
So come and spend a little time on me
Remember how we used to be

(Used To Be)
