Olivia Newton-John – Physical (1981)

todayMarzo 25, 2022 1

Background
share close

Olivia Newton-John è stata una delle star assolute dei primissimi anni 80. A tre anni dal successo mondiale di Grease, che era uscito nell’estate del 1978, Sandy, che già alla fine del film si era trasformata con vestiti di pelle e atteggiamenti seducenti, è definitivamente tornata Olivia, una cantante e star completa pronta a conquistare di nuovo il mondo.

Nel 1981 gli autori Terry Shaddick e Steve Kipner avevano scritto una canzone piuttosto esplicita, pensando a un interprete maschio che avesse successo presso il pubblico femminile. Il nome che avevano in mente era Rod Stewart, ma uno dei manager di Olivia sentì la canzone (peraltro lo stesso Kipner era un grande amico di Olivia) e decise di proporla a lei.

Olivia all’inizio declinò perché la canzone le sembrava un po’ troppo sfacciata ed esplicita, ma per fortuna poi ci ripensò. In effetti non fu l’unica ad avere questa reazione! Perfino Steve Lukather, il chitarrista dei Toto che eseguì gli assoli di chitarra della canzone, fu abbastanza diretto nel dire che non credeva in questa canzone, che non aveva nessuna possibilità di successo.

Va detto che Lukather ebbe la stessa sensazione anche di altre famose canzoni dei Toto, che invece diventarono successi planetari, come “Africa” e “Rosanna“, canzoni su cui all’inizio non avrebbe scommesso un centesimo.

E così “Physical” (il titolo originale doveva essere “Let’s get physical”) uscì il 28 settembre del 1981, due giorni dopo il trentatreesimo compleanno di Olivia, ed era uno dei migliori momenti per fare uscire una canzone se aveva un buon video.

Sì, perché come sappiamo MTV aveva appena iniziato le proprie trasmissioni, il 1 agosto di quello stesso anno, e quindi se avevi un buon video c’erano ottime possibilità che te lo trasmettessero in lungo e in largo, perché non ce ne erano poi molti!!

Il video di “Physical” fu determinante per il successo della canzone. Perché se il titolo della canzone era come dicevamo assai esplicito sul tipo di fisicità, il video ne cambiò totalmente la dimensione e lo riferì alla tonicità del corpo umano. Del resto eravamo nel pieno dell’epopea della ginnastica aerobica! E quindi ricordiamo tutti il video ambientato in una palestra dove Olivia cerca in tutti i modi ma senza risultato di rimettere in forma un gruppo di uomini poco atletici e decisamente sovrappeso.

Quando però Olivia esce per andare a cambiarsi, senza di lei i signori panciuti si danno da fare, e quando lei ritorna non li riconosce più: sono dimagriti, molto più muscolosi, e sembrano perfino più giovani. C’è un piccolo particolare, che forse oggi risulterebbe meno ironico di come suonava nel 1981: i ragazzi muscolosi escono a coppie tenendosi per mano. Ma per fortuna a Olivia rimane l’ultimo, che non è proprio tonico e muscoloso come gli altri ed è rimasto un po’ panciuto, ma alla fine è quello che va bene a Olivia.

La canzone ebbe un successo strepitoso dapprima negli Stati Uniti, probabilmente grazie al richiamo che il nome di Olivia Newton-John esercitava ancora, e poi anche in Europa e tantissimi altri paesi, come Nuova Zelanda, Australia, Canada. Ci furono comunque anche delle zone remote degli Stati Uniti ove le radio locali si rifiutarono di trasmettere la canzone per via del testo, che per quanto stemperato dal video, era comunque assai esplicito.

In ogni caso, “Physical” resta una delle grandi canzoni dei primissimi anni 80, e ci ha regalato una Olivia Newton-John nuova, ma sempre star di livello mondiale.

Eighth Wonder – I’m not scared (1988)

Ed all’improvviso apparve lei, Patsy Kensit. Il fatto che fosse giovane, carina, sexy e che sapesse pure cantare, fece dirottare tutte le attenzioni verso di lei, mentre il resto del gruppo, gli Eighth Wonder (“Ottava Meraviglia”) le faceva da contorno. All’inizio il gruppo si chiamava “Spice”, ma la cantante lasciò il gruppo e così il chitarrista Jamie Kensit propose di far entrare nel gruppo sua sorella Patsy, all’epoca solo 15enne. […]
