“In your message you said
you were going to bed
but I’m not done with the night

So I stayed up and read
but your words in my head
got me mixed up so I turned out the light

And I, don’t know how
to slow it down
my mind’s racing
from chasing pirates

Well, I’m having the squeems
while the silliest thing’s
floppin’ around in my brain

And I try not to dream
but them possible schemes
swim around, wanna drown me in sync

And I don’t know how
to slow it down
oh, my mind’s racing
from chasing pirates

And I don’t know how
to slow it down
oh, my mind’s racing
from chasing pirates

My mind’s racing
from chasing pirates
my mind’s racing
from chasing pirates”.

Citazioni.

Chasing Pirates is the first single by American singer Norah Jones from her fourth album, The Fall. It was released exclusively to iTunes on Tuesday, October 13, 2009. The song also had its North American radio station premiere on the defunct 97.3 EZ Rock, now CHBM, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on October 9, 2009. The song went top ten in Japan, The Netherlands and Belgium. In the U.S.A., “Chasing Pirates” peaked at No. 13 on Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks and No. 7 on Jazz Songs. “Chasing Pirates” was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, becoming Jones’s third nominations, after “Don’t Know Why” and “Sunrise“. Jones lost this in this category for the first time.
Norah Jones explained how “Chasing Pirates” came to be, “About a year ago, I did some demos in my home studio. I had some friends come in and we figured out a cool arrangement for ‘Chasing Pirates‘, with a cool drum part. It went somewhere I didn’t expect it to go, and that became a direction to look in”. October 27, 2009 VH1 aired the full version of Norah Jones‘s “Chasing Pirates” music video directed by Rich Lee. In the beginning of the music video, she finds a map of Manhattan in a bottle while sitting on the couch in an apartment complex. In the next scene of the music video, she steers a building from a roof made to look like a pirate ship as she tries to find what is marked on the map. She also sits on deck before the roof transforms into a pirate ship. The music video also gained significant airplay on Australia’s channel GO as filler time between programs in late 2009 and early 2010. She performed the song live on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars on October 20, as well as Late Show with David Letterman on November 11, 2009, Good Morning America on November 16, 2009, The View on November 23, 2009, The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien on December 15, 2009 and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The song entered the Adult Album Alternative charts on October 21, 2009 at #13. It became the highest entry by a female artist on that chart since Alanis Morissette‘s “Everything” in 2004. The last single by a female artist to chart at a higher position was another single by Jones, “Sunrise“. The song entered on the Irish Singles Chart for the first time on #39”.
