2005 - Teach me again CD Maxi Single

"Teach Me Again" is a single from the movie soundtrack “All The Invisible Children". The song was written and produced by Elisa and co-written by Ali Soleimani Noori.

“All The Invisible Children” is an anthology movie. 7 parts of 16 minutes. Every part tells us the story of a child’s exploitation and childhood. The movie was released in 2005.

It was a dream come true for the production crew of the movie when Tina accepted their invitation. They wanted to express two different realms of life. Tina liked the song “Teach Me Again” and they’ve decided to make a duet of the song with Tina and Elisa. Tina Turner, a world wide superstar and Elisa, a big Italian (national) popstar. “Teach Me Again” was the first recorded duet with a female singer in Tina’s solo career.

 

 

“Teach Me Again” is the last official released single of Tina. It topped the charts in Italy, and charted in some other European countries as well, but with small success. The song is about a second learning base from a child to an adult. Children often teach adults about new stuff and their sense of logic. Adults will be teached again by them.

Tina and Elisa shot a video together which was quite simple. Tina and Elisa opposite each other by a piano. What they wanted to express was the difference between the two realms. The video was interspersed with clips from the movie. As far as we know they’ve never performed the song on a tv show or live.

Teach me again

Single: Teach me again - 2006 - with Elisa

What's it to walk on a silent road,
to be thirsty and wait for - wait for the rain?
What is it like?

You wake me up with a ray of light,
tell me a joke and if you don't know one, never mind!
Can't we just look at the Sun

and live a lifetime in a day
like some butterflies? Not quite the same!
A lifetime in a day
in which we learn to fly out of our cage!

So what is the smell of summer like? And
what is the sound of your heart when you're running? And
what is to be fearless like? And
what is to have nothing in mind but plenty of space?

In this place there's the law of the strongest
but we confuse the weak with the one that
makes big mistakes
and the strong with the perfect

And live a lifetime in a day,
like some butterflies? Not quite the same!
A lifetime in a day,
in which we learn to fly out of this cage!

So what is the smell of summer like? And
what is the sound of your heart when you're running? And
what is to be fearless like? And
what is to have nothing in mind but plenty of space?

    Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out.

    I never said "Well, I don't have this and I don't have that." I said, I don't have this yet, but I'm going to get it.

    I will never give in to old age until I become old. And I'm not old yet!

    I didn't have anybody, really, no foundation in life, so I had to make my own way. Always, from the start. I had to go out in the world and become strong, to discover my mission in life.
