Oscar 2017, John Legend canta le due canzoni di La La Land [video]

Audition (The Fools Who Dream) e City of Stars interpretate da John Legend alla notte degli Oscar 2017.

E’ stato John Legend, al pianoforte, a interpretare un medley delle due canzoni di La La Land candidate agli Oscar 2017 nella categoria Miglior Canzone Originale. La scelta del cantante non è stata causale, essendo proprio lui nel cast della pellicola interpretata da Emma Stone e Ryan Gosling.

I brani eseguiti dal vivo sono stati Audition (The Fools Who Dream) e City of Stars. Potete recuperarli qui sopra.

My aunt used to live in Paris.
I remember
she used to come home
and tell us these stories
about being abroad
and I remember she told us
that she jumped into the river
once,
barefoot.

She smiled…

Leapt, without looking
And tumbled into the Seine
The water was freezing
She spent a month sneezing
But said she would do it again

Here’s to the ones who dream
Foolish as they may seem
Here’s to the hearts that ache
Here’s to the mess we make

She captured a feeling
Sky with no ceiling
The sunset inside a frame

She lived in her liquor
And died with a flicker
I’ll always remember the flame

Here’s to the ones who dream
Foolish as they may seem
Here’s to the hearts that ache
Here’s to the mess we make

She told me:
“A bit of madness is key
To give us new colors to see
Who knows where it will lead us?
And that’s why they need us”

So bring on the rebels
The ripples from pebbles
The painters, and poets, and plays

And here’s to the fools who dream
Crazy as they may seem
Here’s to the hearts that break
Here’s to the mess we make

I trace it all back to then
Her, and the snow, and the Seine
Smiling through it
She said she’d do it again
