Simone Quagliata (& Mika)

Recommended Posts

Ok, this was supposed to be a kind of news but thought it might fit better in here. So, there's this "upcoming" Italian songwriter who's just released his first single, and he's a fan of Mika and he even mentions him in this song (named "QDM Qualcosa Dentro Me").

Here's the article:

Cuneo: 'QDM' singolo d'esordio per Simone Quagliata

 

Dopo anni di gavetta e speranza, finalmente arriva il singolo d’esordio di Simone Quagliata, il cantautore ventiduenne di Cuneo. S’intitola 'Qdm (Qualcosa dentro me)', scritto e composto dallo stesso Simone. Gli arrangiamenti del brano sono stati realizzati da uno studio di Taranto, dall’arrangiatore Vito Astone il quale ha sostenuto da subito il progetto del giovane cantante. La copertina del singolo è stata invece realizzata dallo studio grafico di Cuneo del giovane Danilo Sanino che sin da subito ha deciso di sostenere e credere nel progetto del giovane cantante.

 

“Con le mie melodie e i miei testi in tasca - commenta Simone - uniti alla passione per la recitazione e a quella per la scrittura, mi sono incamminato da tempo alla ricerca di un produttore o una casa discografica che creda nel mio sogno. Ed ecco così il mio singolo d'esordio che s’intitola 'QdM (Qualcosa dentro me)'. Questo brano nasce come sorta di 'rivincita' verso quei produttori che mi hanno chiesto in passato delle somme spropositate di denaro per fare musica. Dedicato ad una persona che stimo ed ammiro: al grande Mika (citato nel testo della canzone), perché la sua musica e il suo magico mondo colorato, hanno saputo aiutarmi in tanti momenti difficili”.*

 

È possibile, scaricare gratuitamente la canzone su internet attraverso http://www.simonequagliata.it.

 

Reduce dal successo dei concerti che si sono tenuti a Luglio in Via Roma a Cuneo al caffè Ruffino, Simone sarà ospite del comico Enrico Ocir il 27 settembre al Palatenda di Fossano e il 13 dicembre al Teatro Toselli di Cuneo. Nel mese di ottobre, inoltre, sarà possibile assistere a nuovi show in occasione della “Fiera del Marrone” in Via Roma presso il Bar Ruffino. Le date ufficiali saranno presto comunicate sul sito internet del cantante.

And in his myspace (other than many familiar elements:naughty:) there's a little explanation of the song:

 

QDM (Qualcosa dentro me)

Questo brano nasce come sorta di “rivincita” verso quei produttori che mi hanno chiesto in passato delle somme spropositate di denaro per fare musica. Dedicato ad una persona che stimo ed ammiro: al grande Mika (citato nel testo della canzone), perché la sua musica e il suo magico mondo colorato, hanno saputo aiutarmi in tanti momenti difficili. Le mie canzoni racchiudono sonorità limpide e suggestive, come le persone che ho amato. Una musica aperta, come le storie che ho vissuto. Pensieri profondi, ma anche spensierati, come le avventure esistenziali di un ragazzo qualunque.

 

 

*This song is a sort of "revenge" towards all those music companies (familiar, uh?:mf_rosetinted:)who asked me for such a huge amount of money in order to make music. Dedicated to someone I estimate and admire: the great Mika (whose name appears in the lyrics), because his music and his magical colorful world helped me during hard times. My songs are made of clear and suggestive sounds, just like the people I loved. An open music, as the stories I lived. Deep but also lighthearted thoughts, like a normal guy's life.

Nice Myspace work Mirtilla! :thumb_yello:

 

I'm downloading QdM, it'll be nice to have some new Italian music to listen to, and it sounds like I'll definitely like this song :roftl:

 

And I'm glad to see that there's someone in Italy who appreciates a good cup of tea :naughty:

I've kinda become obsessed with this song :naughty:

So I've been trying to figure out the lyrics and this is what I've come up with:

 

_________ forte il telefono per me puo stare sempre silenzioso cuanto vuole

Ma per che (x3)

Puo essere rappia o stupore

Non c’e nessuno che mi vuole

Ma io sento che

Qualcosa c’e dentro me

 

Mi chiamavano Billy perche

_______________________________ e anche ________

Mi consolavano (?) amici

Ma non volavo (?) crescere per niente

 

Puo essere rappia o stupore

Non (?) c’e qualcuno che mi vuole

Ma io sento che

Qualcosa c’e dentro me

 

Ci sei te (?)

La mia musica che suona

Che vola ____________________

Dentro ______ camera

D’ove tutti i miei piensieri

Sono escriti sopra il muro

Che non vuole _______________ ne suffrire

Ma cantare e state (?) forte dentro me

_________________che cose

Ma c’e, c’e qualcosa dentro me

 

C’era (?) un grande produttore che _________me

E che cosa faccio, cosa canto e perche

______________ dissi che ascoltavo a te (?)

 

 

 

All corrections greatly appreciated! :wink2:

I can't do any more right now cos I need to get some proper work done :mf_rosetinted::roftl:

So I've been trying to figure out the lyrics and this is what I've come up with:

Wait: do you speak italian?:shocked: I know it might sound similar to Spanish but, as for me I really can't get a word of spanish:naughty::blush-anim-cl:

 

 

This is what i came up to, there are still a few bits (the ones in red) I'm not sure of..:blush-anim-cl:

Il sonno è forte, il telefono per me può stare sempre silenzioso quanto vuole

Ma perchè (x3)

Forse rabbia o stupore

Non c’è nessuno che mi vuole

Ma io sento che

Qualcosa c’è dentro me

 

Mi chiamavano Billy perchè

Denise rida e anche Desirè

Mi consolavano gli amici

Ma non volevo crescere per niente

 

Forse rabbia o stupore

C’è qualcuno che mi vuole

Perchè io sento che

Qualcosa c’è dentro me

 

Ci sei te,

La mia musica che suona

Che vola via nel presente

Dentro al buio in camera

Dove tutti i miei piensieri

Sono scritti sopra a un muro

Che non vuole cancellare nè soffrire

Ma cantare e sbatte forte dentro me

Non so dirti che cos'è

Ma c’è, c’è qualcosa dentro me

 

E c’era un grande produttore, chiese a me

E cosa faccio, cosa canto e perchè

Con simpatia gli dissi che ascoltavo te

E poi confuso con lo sguardo intimorito

per nascondermi, per difendermi.

Mi disse allora che se soldi io non ho

sicuramente il successo non avrò

Ma io testardo dissi "Sì" per non arrendermi.

 

E questa rabbia che ora provo io per lui,

mi dice "Corri, dai Simone ce la fai"

Consapevole che..

 

Che sei te la mia musica che suona,

che vola via nel presente

dentro al buio in camera

Dove tutti i miei piensieri

Sono scritti sopra a un muro

Che non vuole cancellare nè soffrire

Ma cantare e sbatte forte dentro me

C'è uno spiritello che

non so dirti che cos'è

ma c'è, c'è qualcosa dentro me.

vuol sapere in più di me,

vuole uscire _______

dai miei occhi vuol vedere

con la mia voce vuol cantare

questo ritornello che, che c'è..

C'è Mika dentro me..parappapapa...

Che c'è......

Nezza, what do you say?

Cool, thanks!! I really love this song!

Well, I studied Italian for just a year when I was living in Spain, but I haven't practised it for almost 3 years....so I can say the basics, I can understand more than I can say, and I can understand quite a lot when I read it :thumb_yello:

Yeah, I've heard that it's much easier for Spanish speakers to understand Italian than it is for Italian speakers to understand Spanish!

You're asking me Mirtilla? :naughty: I really can't make out the last missing bit, but the rest of the red bits sound right to me!

 

I've only studied a little bit of Spanish, and forgotten nearly all of it :roftl: I had a few Spanish friends when I studied in Italy for a year, and I found that it was always easier to understand them speaking Spanish after a few drinks :naughty: They said too that they thought it'd be easier for them to understand Italian than for Italians to understand Spanish.

Yeah, I find that really interesting...it's a similar situation with Portuguese: it's easier for Portuguese speakers to understand Spanish than vice versa....I think it has something to do with how far the language has diverged from Latin...but that's just my opinion!

(sorry, waaay off topic, lol)

 

wwow...that's really Mika-ish :naughty:

i like it... but i do think it's a bit too much inspired from Mika.

 

I know what you mean...it's VERY Mika....but at least he credits Mika with it..but still, even the artwork is Mika-esque....

I like his voice and all, but honestly...it's all too Mika-ish. :boxed:

Mika is great, and I'm happy to see that are new artist inspired in his work, but...I dunno, this looks a bit more than just inspiration! :boxed:

 

Anyway, he has a cool voice. :thumb_yello:

simonequagliata sounds? Sounds familiar, the sounds:naughty:

 

res332551_Cover.jpg

 

That even has Mika on it:roftl:

 

"Some people compare me with Mika and this is fantastic! But I'm Simone! "

 

No sh*t:naughty:

 

 

He even nicked the tree drawing of Mika's page

 

 

His influences: "Think Beck via Queen, Elton John and Mika."

 

Mika's influences: "Think Beck via Queen and Elton John and a touch of Rufus W."

 

So yeah, his voice is not bad but he tries to copy Mika way too much. He copied almost everything that made Mika unique, and I like people who are unique so no Simone for me:naughty:

Yeah the artwork and all.....it's :blink:

I do think he's TOO Mika, but I think his similairty with music that I like is what attracts me to him......I can't control what I like :bleh:

Yeah, exactly what I think!

It seems he's trying to be successfull using elements that made Mika what he is now...

His whole Myspace page, artwork, even the "sounds" thing in the page address is way too similar to Mika's. :thumbdown:

Uhhh... yaa.... I wonder if he was also bullied in his childhood and took time off of school to work with a Russian music teacher.

And this - on his album cover?? Crossing the line there IMO.

Nice that he at least admits how influenced he is by Mika, but the MySpace page is a bit much. Not concerned though... his talent doesn't come anywhere close. :naughty:

 

 

"A bit" too much... :blink:

oh wow, yeah! although when you google his name, not much comes up so I don't think he has one, yet.............:naughty:

 

Maybe he'll create one himself... :naughty: But only after he goes to hairdresser to make his hair curly! :naughty:

 

 

 

 

 

Oh my...I'm mean, I know! I'll shut up!
