“Loco” por Alejandro Fernández


Vocabulario


Loco
Me dicen loco, porque hablo con las aves
Y a los amigos que me encuentro por la calle
No les platico de otra cosa que de ti

Loco
Porque me ama la mejor de las estrellas
Porque se niegan a aceptar que la más bella
Haya bajado de tan alto para mí

Loco
Porque les digo que me quieres con el alma
Y por las tardes, cada vez que cae tu falda
Voy despojándote de todo lo demás

Loco
Por esos ojos que me dicen que me aman
Cuando amanecen encimita de mi almohada
Tras esas noches de locura que me das
Cuando te sueño

Loco
Porque les digo que me quieres con el alma
Y por las tardes cada vez que cae tu falda
Voy despojándote de todo lo demás

Loco
Por esos ojos que me dicen que me aman
Cuando amanecen encimita de mi almohada
Tras esas noches de locura que me das
Cuando te sueño

“Quiero Que Me Quieras”

httpv://youtu.be/fKZAWvs9qpY


Vocabulario


Quiero que me quieras
Quiero que me adores
Quiero que me sientas
Me urge que me ames

Yo mis botas lustraré
Y mi sombrero me pondré
Tempranito llegaré
Si me dices que me amas

Yo te vi, yo te vi, yo te vi
Yo te vi llorando, oh oh
Si, si te vi si te vi si te vi
Si te vi llorando

Solo en este mundo
Sin tí me estoy muriendo
Dime que, dime que, dime que,
Tú estás sintiendo

Hilo papalote, hilo
Chaparrita, ya de tanto llorar
Ya estás bien hinchadita,
Pero tu así me sigues gustando, ya no?
Vente conmigo

Quiero que me quieras
Quiero que me adores
Quiero que me sientas
Me urge que me ames

Yo mis botas lustraré
Y mi sombrero me pondré
Tempranito llegaré
Si me dices que me amas

Yo te vi, yo te vi, yo te vi
Yo te vi llorando, oh oh
Si, si te vi si te vi si te vi
Si te vi llorando

Solo en este mundo
Sin ti me estoy muriendo
Dime que, dime que, dime que,
Tu estas sintiendo

“Democracy”

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXf45gNkHfw

To make a contented slave,
first, you must make a thoughtless one;
you must darken his powers of reason.
To keep your slave from books,
you must be merciless in your discipline;
fear is the sibling of nescience.

If ignorance is bliss,
then bliss must also be slavery.
If so, I can only choose misery.

As I would not be a slave,
so, I would not be a master.
This expresses my idea of democracy.
Whatever differs from this,
to the extent of the difference,
is no democracy.

Music by Smith/Helminski

Cover of Henley/Hornsby’s “The End of the Innocence, Rick Perry Edition

 

I was revisiting this song by Bruce Hornsby and Don Henley recently when word was circulating that Texas governor Rick Perry might end up with the Republican nomination for president.

If you investigate the lyrics a bit, you encounter lines like,

O beautiful for spacious skies
Now those skies are threatening
They’re beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales

If these lines are a bit too opaque, you might be tempted, as I was, to look into what Henley thinks they mean. I turned up the following, from “The White Paper: Don Henley’s ‘Inside Job,’ ” Billboard Magazine, April 8, 2000:

What do you think of [the album] The End of the Innocence from 1989?

I still love the song “New York Minute,” and “The Last Worthless Evening” is just straight-ahead pop, but it’s good. And of course, “The End of the Innocence”: that song is very fixed in time. I think it has enough universality that it could still apply to today, but it was about the whole Reagan era.”

The Case for Anilingus in The B52’s “Roam”

Jim DeRogatis is pop-music critic at the Chicago Sun-Times. He’s written several rock ‘n’ roll books, and is a host of Sound Opinions.

In an article titled “Songs About Sex,” a compilation of 40 such songs, DeRogatis lists “Roam” from the B52’s. He says, “…and only these New Wave art-popsters could pen one about analingus.”

This isn’t the first time DeRogatis has made this claim. In a June 19, 2008 article regarding Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III, he says, “…some of the greatest hits in pop history have paid subtly veiled homage to oral sex, ‘Please Please Me,’ ‘Sugar, Sugar’ and the B-52s’ ‘Roam’ among them.”*

Upon reading this for the first time, I loudly exclaimed, “Anal-oral sexual contact in a catchy pop song? I don’t freakin’ believe it!” The elderly woman sitting next to me at the bus stop made a strangled gurgling sound and fainted. In my excitement, I performed anilingus on her while she was unconscious. Continue reading The Case for Anilingus in The B52’s “Roam”

I use both spellings of the word here and I don’t think I can justify correcting “analingus.” A Google search for both terms favors the “analingus” spelling, roughly 3,000,000 to 1,000,000. Merriam-Webster, American Heritage, and Random House dictionaries all favor the “anilingus” spelling.*

Ricky Martin’s “Vuelve” (Spanish and English)

Vuelve (Come Back)

Algo me dice que ya
no volverás

  Something tells me
you’re not coming back

Estoy seguro que esta vez
No habra marcha atrás
Después de todo
fui yo a decirte que no
Sabes bien que no es cierto
Estoy muriendo por dentro

  I`m certain that this time
There`s no going back
After everything
I went to tell you no
You know well that it`s not certain
I`m dying inside

Y ahora es que me doy cuenta
Que sin ti no soy nada
He perdido las fuerzas,
he perdido las ganas
He intentado encontrarte
en otras personas
No es igual,
no es lo mismo
Nos separa un abismo

  And now I realize
That without you I`m nothing
I`ve lost the strength,
I`ve lost the desire
I tried to find you
in other people
They`re not the same,
it`s not the same
An abyss separates us

Vuelve
Que sin ti
la vida se me va
Vuelve
Que me falta el aire
si tú no estás
Vuelve
Nadie ocupara tu lugar

  Come back
Because without you
my life just goes by
Come back
Because I can`t breathe
if you`re not here
Vuelve
No one can take your place

Sobra tanto espacio
si no estás
No paso un minuto
sin pensar
Sin ti la vida
lentamente se me va

  There`s so much space
if you`re not here
A minute doesn`t go by
that I don`t think
Without you my life
passes slowly by

Algo me dice ya
no sirve de nada
Tantas noches en vela
Aferrado a mi almohada
Si pudiera tan solo regresar un momento
Ahora es que te comprendo
Ahora es cuando te pierdo

  Something tells me that
it`s not worth it
So many sleepless nights
Hugging my pillow
If I could go back
even a moment
Now that I understand you
Now that I`ve lost you

(Coro)

  (Chorus)

Sobra tanto espacio
si no estas
No paso un minuto
sin pensar
Sin ti la vida lentamente se me va

  There`s so much space
if you`re not here
A minute doesn`t go by
that I don`t think
Without you my life passes slowly by

Y a pesar que fui yo a decirte que no
Sin embargo, aqui yo sigo insistiéndote

 

And despite that I went to tell you no
Without a doubt I`m still here begging you
