Questa non è una canzone d'amore
by Alessandro Robecchi
(*)(*)(*)(*)( )(814)
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
