The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will be held on August 30, 2020 in New York City. Keke Palmer is set to host. Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande are the most nominated acts with nine each. Nominees for Push Best New Artist were revealed on July 23, 2020, and other categories were announced on July 30. Fan voting also began on July 30 and ended on August 23. Nominees for Song of Summer, Best Group and Everyday Heroes: Frontline Medical Workers were additionally released on August 24.

Ceremony information

The awards were originally scheduled to be held at Barclays Center for the first time since 2013. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was expected to be held with “limited or no audience”, as one of the first major indoor events to be held in the city since the onset of the pandemic in the state, with MTV also announcing plans for the show to “[span] all five boroughs” to “pay homage to the strength, spirit and incredible resilience of NYC and its beloved residents”.

MTV eventually scrapped the indoor component of the ceremony at Barclays after “close consultation with state and local health officials” and announced that it would be conducted in an outdoor format across the city; the Center will host the 2021 show instead.[3] New one-off award categories for “Quarantine Performance” and “Best Music Video from Home” were added on July 30 in light of the ongoing pandemic. Three additional categories were announced on August 24: Song of Summer, Best Group and “Everyday Heroes: Frontline Medical Workers”, with the latter created “to celebrate performances by COVID-19 first responders”. The awards will be simulcast live by ViacomCBS half-sister network The CW on August 30, marking the VMA’s first ever broadcast on terrestrial television in the United States.

🎵 U2 – City of Blinding Lights

I believe this is the most suitable song on this day, where shops and malls have dazzling lights on the cities.

LYRIC

The more you see the less you know
The less you find out as you go
I knew much more then than I do now
Neon heart dayglo eyes
A city lit by fireflies
They’re advertising in the skies
For people like us
And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground…
Ooh ooh ooh
OOh Ooh ooh
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights
Don’t look before you laugh
Look ugly in a photograph
Flash bulbs purple irises
The camera can’t see
I’ve seen you walk unafraid
I’ve seen you in the clothes you made
Can you see the beauty inside of me?
What happened to the beauty I had inside of me
And I miss you when you’re not around
I’m getting ready to leave the ground
Ooh ooh ooh
OOh Ooh ooh
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights
Time… Time
Won’t leave me as I am
But time won’t take the boy out of this man
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
Oh you look so beautiful tonight
In the city of blinding lights
The more you know the less you feel
Some pray for others steal
Blessings are not just for the ones who kneel… luckily

 

TRADUZIONE TESTO
Più vedi, meno sai
Più cresci, meno capisci
io sapevo più cose rispetto a quanto so adesso

cuore che dà luce, luce giornaliera agli occhi
la città è illuminata dalle lucciole
si stanno annunciando nei cieli
e noi piacciamo alle persone

e mi manchi quando non sei qui intorno mi sto preparando a lasciare il suolo

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

oh sei così bella stanotte…
nella città di luci accecanti

non pensare prima di ridere
cerca di sembrare cattiva in una fotografia
lampade, iridi color porpora che
la macchina fotografica non può vedere

ti ho vista camminare senza paura
ti ho vista nei vestiti che hai fatto
riesci a vedere la bellezza dentro di me?
cos’è successo alla bellezza che avevo dentro di me?

e mi manchi quando non sei qui intorno
mi sto preparando a lasciare il suolo
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

oh sei così bella stanotte… stanotte…
nella città di luci accecanti

il tempo… il tempo… il tempo…
non mi lascerà così come sono
ma non porterà via il ragazzo che c’è in quest’uomo

oh sei così bella stanotte…
oh sei così bella stanotte…
oh sei così bella stanotte…
nella città di luci accecanti

Più sai meno senti
alcune preghiere che gli altri ruberanno
le benedizioni non sono solo per quelli che strisciano fortunati

Silence does not exist: it is the song of birds!

In the big cities there is no more silence and noise pollution has become daily. We often use music to isolate ourselves from the surrounding world, full of noise and chaos. In fact, in addition to giving emotions (often deriving from its musical genre), music has a therapeutic function.

Many studies have shown that while listening to music, the body increases the production of endorphin, which acts like a morphine in the brain, alleviating depression or anxiety.

Anyway. the best solution to detach ourselves from the chaos of the city would be to get in touch with nature.

But what exactly is silence? Pure silence almost never exists because probably the silence itself is a deafening noise to the solitude of our soul. True silence is when we hear birds singing or how much we hear the sound of crickets or cicadas …
