On My iPod: Chocolate Milk, Didi, a Fragrant Garden & Everything Changes
Alright, it’s no secret to those who have been following my posts that I’ve recently rediscovered the wonder that is Nanni Moretti. In case you missed it, read my very personal piece about watching his latest We Have a Pope (Habemus Papam) at the ADFF.
But what few may have known, until now, is that thanks to the genius of Moretti, I’ve also unearthed and rediscovered four songs, by Mercedes Sosa, Rufus Wainwright, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Khaleb which I now play incessantly on my iPod — going to meetings, walking to the gym, or jogging around the park.
I’m sharing them with you, via SongSprite, but you can also watch the YouTube videos below. To purchase, well you know how to use iTunes, don’t you? N-joy!
Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk from Caos Calmo (not directed but only written by Moretti).
Todo Cambia from Habemus Papam.
Didi from Caro Diario.
Unfortunately, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s song “Yaad-e-Nabi Gulshan Mehka” is not on SongSprite, but here’s the YouTube video with images… The song is from Aprile.
P.S. The cool thing about SongSprite is that you add up all your songs, from a list of YouTube videos available, and then play it on your computer, iPad or Tablet, whenever, however, wherever you wish… And it’s legal. Just saying.
