Piano sheet music and video of "Anonimato" (Anonimity)
Always when I sing this bossa nova I ask the
audience ... who hasn't had a secret love? even if it was just a calf love ...
in the best case ... I say, who is without sin. cast the first stone, but please,
have mercy on me, don't point to the stage, I don't want death by stoning, haha!
Surely most of us, we've all had our "secret love" at some point of our lifes,
I wrote this song framed in a time where there were no digital photo cameras ...
times where precisely the photos were framed. But any photo of an eventual
secret love shouldn't be framed, it doesn't seem a good idea, right? ...that
photo should be adored anonymously.
"Impossile dreams sometimes can be a reason to live" ... the loves secrets
remain anonymous (at least it should be in that way, I presume) , should remain
anonymous, and also they're suffering in the anonymity ... blot out in the
safest corner of the heart .
However, in times of loneliness and disappointment, those loves can be a source
of encouragement and hope, a reason for living.
Today, the thousands photos that social networks offer as potential secret loves
have finally killed that spell...I believe there are too much haha!. For a
person who, for various reasons, is vulnerable to passion, social networks can
become a trap, people can get caught in that net ... Is that why they are called
social NETworks?? haha
Moreover, this "anonymity" becomes history, the aforementioned social networks
themselves are responsible to reveal every secret, every treasured feeling, in
spite of its "solid" privacy policies.
But this bossa was written in another time, a time more romantic and poetic,
totally disconnected from the vertigo that pushes us today in our daily lives.
