Questa non è una canzone d'amore
by Alessandro Robecchi
(*)(*)(*)(*)( )(806)
Un fortunato autore televisivo ha abbandonato la trasmissione cui deve la fama e una discreta agiatezza. Si chiama Crazy Love e racconta la vita sentimentale della "né buona né brava gente della Nazione". Sotterfugi, tradimenti, odio, passioni e rancori, al motto di "Anche questo fa fare l'amore". Un enorme successo, ma lui non ne può più. Felice e orgoglioso della sua scelta, una sera gli si presenta in casa un tizio che cerca di ucciderlo. Si salva la vita, ma da qui in poi cominciano i guai. Una coppia di killer colti e professionali, due zingari in cerca di vendetta, una giovane segugia col cuore in frantumi, collezionisti e contrabbandieri di souvenir nazifascisti, qualche morto di troppo. Sullo sfondo accanto a una Milano multietnica e luccicante, la vita brulicante del campo rom, la sua cultura, la sua eticità. Questo di Robecchi è un giallo e una commedia, tra Scerbanenco e le canzoni di Enzo Jannacci. Raccontata da una voce caustica e cattiva, che tutto commenta e descrive con acuminata ironia, e che tiene in equilibrio il sarcasmo ribelle e sfacciato del suo investigatore chandleriano (appassionato di Bob Dylan) e il cinismo a suo modo morale del punto di vista criminale e della vendetta.

"Shot of Love" - Bob Dylan, 1981 I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love Don’t need a shot of heroin to kill my disease Don’t need a shot of turpentine, only bring me to my knees Don’t need a shot of codeine to help me to repent Don’t need a shot of whiskey, help me be president I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love Doctor, can you hear me? I need some Medicaid I seen the kingdoms of the world and it’s makin’ me feel afraid What I got ain’t painful, it’s just bound to kill me dead Like the men that followed Jesus when they put a price upon His head I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love I don’t need no alibi when I’m spending time with you I’ve heard all of them rumors and you have heard ’em too Don’t show me no picture show or give me no book to read It don’t satisfy the hurt inside nor the habit that it feeds I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love Why would I want to take your life? You’ve only murdered my father, raped his wife Tattooed my babies with a poison pen Mocked my God, humiliated my friends I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love Don’t wanna be with nobody tonight Veronica not around nowhere, Mavis just ain’t right There’s a man that hates me and he’s swift, smooth and near Am I supposed to set back and wait until he’s here? I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love What makes the wind wanna blow tonight? Don’t even feel like crossing the street and my car ain’t actin’ right Called home, everybody seemed to have moved away My conscience is beginning to bother me today I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love I need a shot of love, I need a shot of love If you’re a doctor, I need a shot of love
