Neneh Cherry – “Raw Like Sushi”

l82104cmlmnCasi treinta años después de la edición del primer disco, “Raw Like Sushi”(1989), de Neneh Cherry cabría preguntarse cuantas de las divas actuales de la música pop, incluida Beyoncé Knowles, reconocerían la influencia de Neneh Cherry. Este, su primer disco, que incluía el hit mundial “Buffalo Stance”, es un compendio de R&B que está en todas las listas de los mejor de los 80. Yo llegué a él después de leer una buena crítica del disco y no me defraudó, no solo “Buffalo Stance”, que era un trallazo., si no el resto del disco con temas como “Kisses On The Wind”, “Inna City Mamma” o la que es probablemente mi favorita, “So Here I Come” en la que la Cherry nos deja claras sus intenciones “I know where I’m going and where I’m coming from ,So here I come, so here I come”. Con la colaboración de los chicos de Massive Attack, antes de su propio éxito, con un número enorme de samples de clásicos del funk y del soul, más la voz de Neneh Cherry, rapeando y cantando, y unas canciones escritas por ella misma, el disco ha envejecido más que bien. Vamos que le ponen a mi hijo una canción entre una de Drake y otra de Eminem y ni se entera. Qué demonios! Hoy pruebo con “Love Ghetto” y ya verás…😜
Después de este disco editó dos discos más en poco tiempo, el tercero en 1996 con dos exitazos “7 Seconds”, este a dúo con Youssou N’Dour, y “Woman”, un baladón. Tuvimos que esperar dieciocho años para tener un nuevo disco suyo, y como no, volvió por la puerta grande. Un pedazo de artista.

 

OK, you’re on your own, it’s late
Your girlfriend is on another date with the hero in your dream
Turn around, ask yourself. So, you think you’re gonna win this time Manchild?

Is it the pain of the drinking
Or the Sunday sinking feeling
The car never seems to work
When it’s late your girlfriend’s on a date
And the hero with her in your dream
In your sleep it seemed to like you
Turn around and ask yourself
Turn around ask yourself
Manchild, will you ever win Manchild, look at the state you’re in

Could you go undercover
And sell your brand new lover (could you)
Be someone else for a night
Maybe someone else will love you
You sell your soul for a tacky song
Like the one you hear on the radio
Turn around ask yourself
Turn around and ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you’re in
Manchild, he will make you cry
Manchild, Manchild, Manchild

From Monday down to Friday
You’re working on another man’s car
Or is it in the factory?
It doesn’t matter where you are

Just turn around and ask yourself is this communication
Accentuate the positive and give some illustration
See Manchild, you’re no one, you turn the microphone on
Control communication when I’m kickin’ it and so on
To the point that I need, the air that I breathe
Into an audience that’s waiting and ecstatic to receive
For the meantime another mean rhyme, I keep on sayin’ it
I know what the time is the crowd will keep playing it
Through the speaker boxes loud’s my diagnosis
Cause I believe in miracles and words in heavy doses
Enough R-E-S-P-E and C-T
Respect yourself express no stress the mike is easy
Just believe that all you need is the air that you breathe
Turn around ask yourself

Manchild, will you ever win
Manchild, look at the state you’re in
Manchild, he will make you cry
Manchild, Manchild, Manchild
He’s the apple of your eye

Once bitten twice shy, why don’t you bite me again
Just take it in the right and go tell your friend
Are you ready for the words I turn the microphone on
A figure of speech to reach you at the back and so on
The style I’m stimulating dance floors
Raise your body temperature now and
This demands for power in the amp you know louds my diagnosis
Cause I believe in miracles and words in heavy doses
