The song of May: Just the way you are


Eccoci alla nostra English song del mese. Questa volta, ascoltando musica e guardando video qua e là, Margherita ha scelto una canzone di qualche anno fa, di Bruno Mars.
Al di là della sonorità, le è subito piaciuto il testo e il significato di questo brano che non conosceva, nel suo far sentire bella e speciale una donna.
Ecco qui il video ufficiale:

Ed uno con le parole:

Ed ecco che siamo andate a tradurre il testo, trascritto e stampato, 
The song of May
JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
Oh her eyes, her eyes 
Make the stars look like they're not shining. 
Her hair , her hair 
falls perfectly without her trying 

She's so beautiful and I tell her every day 

I know, I know 
When I compliment her she wont believe me 
And it's so, it's so 
Sad to think she don't see what I see 

But every time she asks me 'Do I look okay?' I say 

When I see your face 
There's not a thing that I would change 
‘Cause you’re amazing 
Just the way you are 

And when you smile 
The whole world stops and stares for a while 
'Cause girl you're amazing 
Just the way you are 

Her lips, her lips 
I could kiss them all day if she'd let me 

Her laugh, Her laugh 
She hates but I think it's so sexy 

She's so beautiful and i tell her every day 

Oh you know, you know, you know I'd never ask you to change 
If perfect is what you're searching for 
Then just stay the same 

So don't even bother asking if you look okay 
You know I say 

When I see your face 
There's not a thing that I would change 
Cause you're amazing 
Just the way you are 

And when you smile 
The whole world stops and stares for a while 
'Cause girl you're amazing 
Just the way you are 

The way you are 
The way you are 
Girl you're amazing 
Just the way you are 

When I see your face 
There's not a thing that I would change 
'Cause you're amazing 
Just the way you are 

And when you smile 
The whole world stops and stares for a while 
'Cause girl you're amazing 
Just the way you are 

Yeaaaah


Poi, come sempre, siamo andate alla ricerca di informazioni sul brano ed il cantante, che abbiamo poi elaborato per iscritto e tradotto oralmente.

Singer: Bruno Mars

Album: Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010)
  
"Just the Way You Are" is the debut solo single recorded by American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars. It’s the lead single from his debut studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans .
The song was written by Mars, along with The Smeezingtons, Khalil Walton, and Needlz. It was released in the United States on August 10, 2010.  Mars said of the song, "It took me months to come up with 'Just the Way You Are'... I wasn't thinking of anything deep or poetic. I was telling a story. Get ready to fall in love!" he added, “I'm just telling a woman she looks beautiful the way she is - and, let's be honest, what woman doesn't wanna hear those lyrics?!"
The song received positive reviews by music critics; it won many awards and it sold millions of copies worldwide, becoming one of the best-selling singles of all time.
The corresponding music video was directed by Ethan Lander and was shot in September 2010 in the downtown of Los Angeles. The video features Peruvian-Australian actress Nathalie Kelley. The video is a mixture of live action and stopped animation and through the animation Bruno shows his girlfriend how beautiful she is. He takes a cassette tape and starts creating images out of the tape and they start to get a life of their own.
The video begins with Kelley listening to "Just the Way You Are" on her walkman as Mars walks in. Mars stops the tape player, removes the cassette tape and begins singing his song. As the instrumental portion of the song begins, Mars pulls the media out of the cassette tape and arranges the media into letters forming his name followed by the song title. As the song continues, he forms a picture of a drum, again on the table, using the tape media. Additional images of similar construction follow throughout the video including a portrait of Mars as well as one of Kelley blinking her eyes and smiling as Mars continues singing. Most of the images shown are animated. Lastly, Mars finishes the song while singing and playing an upright piano while Kelley watches and smiles.

Poi, dopo aver giocato un po' con il testo della canzone in Lyricstraining

Margherita è andata a rappresentare qualcosa del brano con gli acquerelli.
Ha scelto di provare a  ritrarre la ragazza protagonista del video, ma, già ad una prima vista, non era molto persuasa della modella scelta per rappresentare la canzone: "Una ragazza meno perfetta sarebbe andata meglio per il significato del brano..." 
Quindi, mentre disegnava, ha pensato di trasformare la sua ragazza in una donna bella, ma con gli occhiali e un po' meno "sfacciata"...
