Mahmood and Blanco elected winners of the first night of Sanremo 2022 by the Press Room

We watched the whole first night of Festival di Sanremo 2022 and we think we might have found our winners in Mahmood and Blanco.

The first semifinal of Sanremo 2022 is now over, and the Festival of the Italian Songs gave us all great moments of show that almost made us forget the fact that the show always lasts for an eternity. Positive note: the last singer – Giusy Ferreri – was introduced on the stage before midnight Italian Time (groundbreaking!).

Nothing can compare the emotions, the tears, the shivers we all had watching Måneskin singing their success “Zitti e Buoni” – the same song that allowed them to win Sanremo 2021 and Eurovision Song Contest 2021 – but when they sang “Coraline” and Damiano had teary-eyes, well.. put it together with the strong and profound lyrics of that song, we got carried away in a stream of emotions and heartbeats.

What to say about the runner-up of Eurovision 2019 and winner of Sanremo 2019, Mr. Mahmood that this year is participating to the Festival with BLANCO? 

Boy oh boy, if that was a show on the stage of Festival di Sanremo 2022, and the press room elected this duo, winner of the first night.

The song is a love message, a hard one, especially for a person that is unable to express him-selves in a clear way. The lyrics reads: “Non so dirti ciò che provo, è un mio limite, Per un ti amo ho mischiato droghe e lacrime” [tr. I am unable to tell you what I feel, this is a limit of mine. To tell you “I love you”, I mixed drugs and tears].

The official music video, shows Mahmood in a relationship with another boy, while BLANCO is with a girl, but eventually the two of them meet on a deserted road while trying to “fly away” on a bike made of crystals. 

What is very interesting is that, even though Mahmood never officially came out as gay, in this video the intention to show himself for who he really is, is strong.

I have the strong feeling that we are in front of a very (but veeeeery) possible winner of Festival di Sanremo 2022 and a returner to Eurovision Song Contest.

Here you have the lyrics in Italian and English.

 

[Strofa 1: Mahmood]

Ho sognato di volare con te

Su una bici di diamanti

Mi hai detto: “Sei cambiato

Non vedo più la luce nei tuoi occhi”

La tua paura cos’è?

Un mare dove non tocchi mai

Anche se il sesso non è

La via di fuga dal fondo, dai

Non scappare da qui, non lasciarmi così

[Ritornello: Mahmood & BLANCO, BLANCOMahmood]

Nudo con i brividi

A volte non so esprimermi

E ti vorrei amare, ma sbaglio sempre

E ti vorrei rubare un cielo di perle

E pagherei per andar via

Accetterei anche una bugia

E ti vorrei amare, ma sbaglio sempre

E mi vengono i brividi, brividi, brividi

[Strofa 2: BLANCO]

Tu, che mi svegli il mattino

Tu, che sporchi il letto di vino

Tu, che mi mordi la pеlle

Con i tuoi occhi da vipera

E tu sei il contrario di un angеlo

E tu sei come un pugile all’angolo

E tu scappi da qui, mi lasci così

[Ritornello: Mahmood & BLANCO, BLANCOMahmood]

Nudo con i brividi

A volte non so esprimermi

E ti vorrei amare, ma sbaglio sempre

E ti vorrei rubare un cielo di perle

E pagherei per andar via

Accetterei anche una bugia

E ti vorrei amare, ma sbaglio sempre

E mi vengono i brividi, brividi, brividi

[Bridge: BLANCO & Mahmood]

Dimmi che non ho ragione, eh

Vivo dentro una prigione, eh

Provo a restarti vicino

Ma scusa se poi mando tutto a puttane, eh

Non so dirti ciò che provo, è un mio limite

Per un ti amo ho mischiato droghe e lacrime

Questo veleno che ci sputiamo ogni giorno

Io non lo voglio più addosso

Lo vedi, sono qui

Su una bici di diamanti, uno fra tanti

[Ritornello: Mahmood & BLANCO, BLANCOMahmood]

Nudo con i brividi

A volte non so esprimermi

E ti vorrei amare, ma sbaglio sempre

E ti vorrei rubare un cielo di perle

E pagherei per andar via

Accetterei anche una bugia

E ti vorrei amare, ma sbaglio sempre

E mi vengono i brividi, brividi, brividi

 

ENGLISH Translation

Shivers

I dreamed I was flying with you

On a diamond bike

You told me “You’ve changed

I don’t see light in your eyes anymore”

What are you afraid of?

A sea you can never touch

Even if sex isn’t

Really an escape route

Come on, don’t run away from here

Don’t leave me like this

Naked with the shivers

Sometimes I don’t know how to express myself

And I’d like to love you, but I always mess up

I’d like to steal a pearly sky for you

I’d pay to get out

I’d even accept a lie

I’d like to love you, but I always mess up

And I get the shivers, shivers, shivers

You, who wake me up in the morning

You, who spill wine in bed

You, who bite my skin

With your snakelike eyes

And you, you’re the opposite of an angel

And you, you’re like a boxer in their corner

And you run away from here, you leave me like this

Naked with the shivers

Sometimes I don’t know how to express myself

And I’d like to love you, but I always mess up

I’d like to steal a pearly sky for you

I’d pay to get out

I’d even accept a lie

I’d like to love you, but I always mess up

And I get the shivers, shivers, shivers

Tell me I’m wrong

I live inside a prison

I try to stay close to you

Sorry if I make everything go to shit

I don’t know how to tell you how I feel, it’s my problem

For an “I love you” I mixed drugs with tears

This venom that we spit at each other every day

I don’t want it on me anymore

You see it, I’m here

On a diamond bike, one among many

Naked with the shivers

Sometimes I don’t know how to express myself

And I’d like to love you, but I always mess up

I’d like to steal a pearly sky for you

I’d pay to get out

I’d even accept a lie

I’d like to love you, but I always mess up

And I get the shivers, shivers, shivers
