Selezione musicale 130 – Paolo Nutini New Shoes

Paolo Nutini è un giovane cantautore scozzese di discendenze toscane.
In maniera abbastanza casuale si ritrova ad esibirsi da ragazzino su un palco della sua città e viene notato da un produttore discografico.
Rappresenta un classico esempio di come la rete possa essere un valido mezzo per farsi conoscere, infatti la sua produzione iniziale riscuote molto successo sui social network del web e si ritrova ad aprire concerti di artisti quali KT Tunstall e Amy Winehouse.
Nel 2006 viene pubblicato il suo primo album, These Streets, che contiene anche il singolo New Shoes. Negli anni successivi pubblica altri due lavori, il più recente dei quali è Caustic Love è uscito pochi mesi fa.

Woke up cold one Tuesday
I’m looking tired and feeling quite sick
I felt like there was something missing
In my day to day life

So I quickly opened the wardrobe
Pulled out some jeans and a T-Shirt that seemed clean
Topped it off with a pair of old shoes
That were ripped around the seams
And I thought these shoes just don’t suit me

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything’s right
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
And everybody’s smiling, it’s so inviting

Oh, short on money but long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I’m running late and I don’t need an excuse
‘Cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes

Woke up late one Thursday
I’m seeing stars as I’m rubbing my eyes
And I felt like there were two days missing
As I focused on the time

And I made my way to the kitchen
But had to stop from the shock of what I found
The room full of all of my friends all dancing ’round and ’round
And I thought hello new shoes, bye bye blues

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
And everybody’s smiling, it’s so inviting

Oh, short on money but long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I’m running late and I don’t need an excuse
‘Cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes

Take me wandering through these streets
Where bright lights and angels meet
Stone to stone they take me on
I’m walking ’til the break of dawn

Take me wandering through these streets
Where bright lights and angels meet
Stone to stone they take me on
I’m walking ’til the break of dawn

Hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
And everybody’s smiling, it’s so inviting

Oh, short on money but long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I’m running late and I don’t need an excuse
‘Cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes

Oh hey, I put some new shoes on
And suddenly everything is right
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on
And everybody’s smiling, it’s so inviting

Oh, short on money but long on time
Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine
And I’m running late and I don’t need an excuse
‘Cause I’m wearing my brand new shoes
