The '80s was not a great decade for singer/songwriters, given the obsession that FM radio programmers all over the world had with drum machines and MIDI synthesizers. For a while, it seemed (at least to music producers and record companies) that no record would get any airplay if it did not comply with a certain electronic sound. For many songwriters like Francesco De Gregori, born and bred on acoustic guitar and piano settings, adjusting to the new sound proved quite a challenge. Not surprisingly, many of his records from that decade sound a bit forced, or dated, particularly when compared with his previous or later work. Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, or Lou Reed are good cases in point; so is De Gregori. Fortunately, while sections of 1985'sScacchi e Tarocchi fall under the sonic iron rule mentioned above, his songwriting remains strong as ever. Not coincidentally, this is easier to see in the songs that keep the arrangement to a minimum, as in the gorgeous piano ballads "Ciao Ciao" and "A Pa'," the latter a warm -- if characteristically oblique -- tribute to Pier Paolo Pasolini, who was a key influence in De Gregori's intellectual and political education. Scacchi e Tarocchi's raison d'être, however, has to undoubtedly be his opening number, "La Storia," it's one of the most extraordinary songs he ever wrote. Its subject could not be more grandiose: history and the way it affects people's everyday lives. The way De Gregori goes about it, on the other hand, could not be humbler: he uses only his voice and a few piano chords, a simple language, one memorable image after another. He puts forward the idea that every single person is socially responsible and has a political role to play, and that neglecting such facts will not make History stop, change, or go away -- and, believe it or not, he somehow manages to do all this while sounding earnest rather than pretentious. "La Storia" is nothing short of a miracle of popular songwriting: a socialist philosophy of History made into a two-and-a-half minute pop ballad in a language that everyone can understand. The studio version present in this otherwise fine collection, or any of its live versions, is essential listening for anybody seeking to understand the sheer greatness of Francesco De Gregori.

Elton John : les 10 premières années

Que reste-t-il de la première partie de la carrière d’Elton John ? Une discographie foisonnante, un nombre incalculable de tubes, le tout dans un décor exubérant aux recoins parfois sombres. À l’occasion de la sortie du biopic qui lui est consacré (“Rocketman” de Dexter Fletcher), retour sur les années 1970 d’un artiste généreux.

“Back in Black” : AC/DC en pleine lumière

Avec ses 50 millions d’exemplaires, “Back in Black” est le deuxième album le plus vendu au monde, juste derrière “Thriller” de Michael Jackson ! Qui aurait imaginé que ce septième opus studio d’AC/DC arborerait un tel palmarès alors que son charismatique chanteur Bon Scott est mort prématurément après la sortie de “Highway to Hell”. La fin du tome 1 mais surtout le début du tome 2 dont les fans du gang australien continuent aujourd’hui à tourner les pages…

La révolution des Talking Heads

Quarante ans après, la folie funky du “Remain in Light” de la bande de David Byrne a conservé toute sa force. Ce post-punk cérébral propulsé sur un dancefloor cosmopolite a même nourri l’ADN de milliers de groupes comme LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend ou Arcade Fire. Avec ce 4e album produit par Brian Eno, les Talking Heads ont fait leur révolution. Et celle du rock.
