Day 67: “Cartouche” – Blackmore’s Night

!!!ITALIAN!!!

We just reached day 67 on our blog, and through the songs, we already made a travel all around the world: from Japan to Mexico, finding ourself in Finland and Brasil. Shouldn’t we try to travel a bit through Ages?

One of the members of today’s featured band, Ritchie Blackmore (ex Deep Purple), defined the project known as Blackmore’s Night as “renaissance rock”, undergenre of the main category of Medieval Rock. The band was originated between 1989 and 1990, by the meeting of Ritchie Blackmore and Candice Night, both huge fans of the Renaissance Age. And through this shared passion, music grows: medieval instrument as mandoline, lute and hurdy gurdy, are played together with electric guitars and contemporary sounds.

And to make it perfect, the band members play this very suggestive music all dressed with costumes, on the wonderful locations made by castles, renaissance fairs and medieval exhibitions

Here you can have a clear view of what I’m talking about: here  you are with the video of today’s song, Cartouche!

Cartouche – Lyrics

If I share this with you never speak a word
They would never understand if they ever heard
Gemini, Capricorn, rising in the east
Dancing through the witchwood we began to sing…

In between dark and light in the underworld
Wrapped around your finger like a string of pearls
Smiling face, empty hand, 7 golden rings
Dancing through the starlight we began to sing…

Ahh, still I hear the whisper…”Cartouche”…

Caramel colored leaves spiral in the air
Diving right into the ground ‘round the winding stair
Stories carved out of wood, jester and the king
Dancing through the moonlight, we began to sing

Ahh, still I hear the whisper…”Cartouche”…

Memories, black and white, hide behind the glass
In the mirrors and the smoke, its all fading fast
Written word, turn the card winter into spring
Dancing through the witchwood we began to sing…

Ahh, Ahh, still I hear the whisper…”Cartouche”…
