Westerners' Karma is a song performed by Italian singer Francesco Gabbani. The song was released as a digital download on 10 February through BMG Rights Management as the lead single from his third studio album Magellano The main theme of the song is the superficial lifestyle of westerners, mainly based on materialism and appearance. The lyrics refer to the internet as the opiate of the poor in reference to Marx , 'selfie addiction', internet know-it-alls, and a society based on conformity and uniformity. As a result, our evolution seems to 'stumble' instead of moving forward. According to Gabbani, the chorus of the song is a mockery of westerners who believe they can take Eastern cultures and "westernise" them. The song cites such aspects of Indian religions as the Buddha and Nirvana as well as man's evolution from the ape, an idea which he got from reading The Naked Ape , written by British ethologist Desmond Morris.
We have reached the summit! Since their return in from a 14 year long break, two-times winners Italy have had claimed a runners up spot, a third place and two other top 10 results. If all the polls, fan rankings, preview parties and of course, the bookies, are to be believed, we could be looking at a runaway winner on the scale of Alexander Rybak in I could well agree with that — from the moment this won San Remo the long running Italian musical festival where the winner can choose to represent Italy at Eurovision , I was sure this was going to either be the winner or very high up indeed. Francesco is so charming and SO Italian — his live performances are always great.
In fact, events of the last week have created a snowballing momentum that could well see Italy go on to win Eurovision in May. The entry has set Twitter alight, with videos of people performing the routine popping up everywhere. In his second performance of the song, they flipped costumes. He performed in a gorilla outfit, whilst the gorilla performed in his orange sweater, jeans and trainers. For the final, Francesco switched to a star-covered suit whilst the ape donned a red bow-tie. Another staging masterstroke. He won the best newcomer award at Sanremo with his platinum awarded song Amen.
