Check it out below:
Bruce Springsteen is, without a doubt, one of the most important names in music and, even today, he continues to work on new content that delights his fans around the world. However, it was in 1982 that Springsteen demonstrated a passionate vulnerability with the release of the acclaimed album ‘Nebraska’ – whose structure includes the touching “My Father’s House”. The folk ballad, punctuated by tearing vocals and the notes of the guitar and harmonica, talks about her memories with her father, who suffered from mental problems and who is honored in a tragic and emotional narrative.
“PAPA DON’T PREACH”, Madonna
Belonging to the album ‘True Blue’, “Papa Don’t Preach” is one of the best and best known songs by the queen of pop Madonna. Released in 1986, the song revolves around a young girl who becomes pregnant and refuses to have an abortion, having an honest conversation with her father and recognizing that she needs him to continue the choice she has made. The song is brushed with numerous references to Latin music, which would accompany Madonna at various points in her career, and plunges into a spectacular dance-pop that remains in popular memory to this day.
“MY FATHER’S EYES”, Eric Clapton
“My Father’s Eyes” configures itself as one of the most touching tracks of the career of Eric Clapton. Signed by the artist himself, who was also responsible for the production alongside Simon Climiethe story is inspired by the fact that Clapton never met the country – as he died of leukemia in 1985. In his autobiography, ‘Eric Clapton: The Autobiography’, the performer says that, “in the song, I tried to describe the parallel between looking into my son’s eyes and the eyes of my father, who I never knew, through our blood relationship”. The track was awarded the award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance at the Grammy Awards.
“Dance with My Father” is one of the most touching songs of the century and brings out the best of Luther Vandross to the surface – in fact, Vandross himself has already considered the track as the best written and produced of his career. Also signed by Richard Marx, the song is based on a personal experience and pays tribute to his father, who died from complications with diabetes when Luther was just eight years old. In the unfolding plot, the singer-songwriter recalls the fact that his dad loved to dance with his mom — and in recognition, the iteration took home the awards for Song of the Year and Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the Grammy Awards.
“DADDY LESSONS”, Beyonce
Beyonce consecrated herself as one of the greatest artists of all time in the phonographic scene – and, despite having already composed a song for her father on her debut album, it was not until ‘Lemonade’ that this relationship has been explored further. With “Daddy Lessons”Queen B raises expectations of its own sound, starting with the beginnings of Jazz just to cultivate fertile ground for the insurgency of a country Texan who praises, as the title suggests, the lessons his father taught him: “he told me not to cry; my father said ‘shoot’”, repeating the chorus over and over again as a way of finding the strength to keep going; all this included in a paradoxically nostalgic and modernized scope.
