Sri Elton sez Madonna is a natty old bag who shud hold her tongues when denigrating GaGaggles.   The olde decent tracks by the Madonner combine were penned you know by Tin Pan Veterans and such for little more than brill-creme stipends, whilst Ladybitsz GaGgles writes her own material - her methodology is 2 get loaded on Jack D. and maybe a lil spliff 'n' Codeen and then she gets all angsty and primed hoverin over her Yamaha, do it 2 it, untamed / wild as the wind-mill ( looks like Olson Johnson was, I dunno, right as Coach Bloodrayne, eesh)

We were on a boat ride, and we were kissing [which rhymes], and they say a pine tree grows in the woods and the guy likes the girl. Don't cuckoo bitterly, cuckoo bird, in the accursed autumn, sit on the white birch and sing cuckoo to the orphan. I will then believe that our love is true, kiss me 40 times without stopping. Come to me more often--you're sweeter than pralines. Wherever we meet the grass grows green, but when we part the trees dry up and die. In the woods they say a pine tree grows, he likes the girl so much it hurts. My mama complains and my auntie warns me about going out and staying so late. I adore you--let's take a walk.

Мы на лодочке катались,

Золотистой, золотой, -

Не гребли, а целовались,

Не качай, брат, головой.



В лесу, говорят, в бору, говорят,

Растет, говорят, сосенка,

Понравилась мне, молодцу,

Веселая девчонка.



Не кукуй горько, кукушка,

На осине проклятой,

Сядь на белую березу,

Прокукуй над сиротой.



В лесу, говорят, в бору, говорят,

Растет, говорят, сосенка.

Понравилась мне, молодцу,

Пригожая девчонка.



Я тогда тебе поверю,

Что любовь верна у нас,

Поцелуй меня, приятка,

Без отрыву сорок раз.



Ты, говорит, ходи, говорит,

Ко мне, говорит, почаще.

Ты, говорит, носи, говорит.

Пряники послаще.



Где мы с миленьким встречались,

Там зеленая трава,

Где мы с милой расставались,

Там посохли дерева.



В лесу, говорят, в бору, говорят,

Росла, говорят, сосенка,

Уж больно мне понравилась

Смышленая девчонка.



Меня маменька ругает,

Тятька боле бережет:

Как иду с гулянки поздно,

Он с поленом стережет.



Я, говорит, тебя, говорит,

Сынок, говорит, уважу!

Я, говорит, тебе, говорит,

Гуляночку налажу!

It is true Sabina is tiring when he goes all like "It's a lie I didn't lie. It's a lie I doubt about doubts" but when that's not the gravitational center of the song the songs are nice.



It's a lie that I know what I want
It's a lie I sing for the sake of singing
It's a lie I'm a better bullfighter with a real bull.
It's a lie I don't have ambitions
It's a lie my nose grows
It's a lie that when I write love songs I think of you.

I tell you, it's a lie I was a bank robber
It's a lie I won't be one again
It's a lie we loved each other so much...it seems like yesterday.
I swear, it's a lie. Santa is the parents
It's a lie rock and roll's dead
It's a lie kisses without love taste like vinegar
(kisses without love)

But for lies, nothing like reality,
promises everything and gives nothing
I never lied to you but to see you laugh.
Less pious than the heart ones
are the lies of goddess Reason,
I only told you half a truth upside down
it's not the same as half a lie!

It's a lie I don't have enemies
It's a lie they're not right
It's a lie I accept the navel of the world, I am not.
It's a lie I didn't lie to you
It's a lie I won't lie anymore
It's a lie a repeated rumour deserves to be true.

It's a big lie that I lie in boleros
It's a lie we stayed past ten *[song]
It's a lie I'm a gentleman when no one sees me.
I repeat, it's a lie the glass through which you observe me
It's a lie I doubt about doubts
It is a lie a hundred lies won't tell the truth
(won't tell the truth...)

If I want Sri Elton's opinion about who's a natty old bag I'll ask for it.

It's true Gaggles writes her own stuff, but Tin Pan Alley writes better stuff.

'Twas said of George M. Cohan: "He's not the best singer, he's not the best dancer, and he's not the best writer. But he writes better than any singer, he sings better than any dancer, and he dances better than any writer."

The lesson here is that if you're looking for a good songwriter, don't go looking amongst the singers.

The pinhead is fed up with people saying "She's not a very good singer, cuz she doesn't even write her own stuff." Rolling Eyes 

BTW--I know where Adele stole "Rollin' in  the Deep" from.

Which no one hereabouts said. Madonna isn't a very good singer because she isn't a very good singer, songwriting or no, listen to her without much accompaniment or production, mesh, and it's amateur hours.  And Madonna hasn't had a memorable tune, written by whoevers,  since the early early nineties. Sri Elton's point stands. Actually, Elton's defence was not predicated on the songwriting factor, I included that as a valid point of comparison between the two phenoms, tho obvi IT IS ONE FACTOR AMONG MANY DURING ASSESSMENT PROTOCOLS; and thereby good, equanimous user was met with inappropriate boorishness from the usual suspects

"Rollin' in the Deep," (the original name of which was "Going away Blues"), was first recorded by Do-Boy [blues spelling of "DuBois"] Diamond in 1967.

But Adele didn't get it from Do-Boy, I'm sure.  She got it from Bonnie Raitt's producer--Dave "Snaker" Ray. bounce

ABSOLUTELY NOT KIDDING

Adele is a notorious Bonnie Raitt fan, which is why she has Snaker's record.

No use to deny I wanted to die, the day you said we were through
But now that I find you're out of my mind, I can't believe that it's true
I've forgotten somehow that I cared so before
And it's wonderful now, I don't hurt anymore

When I read Dot Wiggin's lyrics, Bob just seems shallow and facile.

I wish I were a performer,
and you were my fan,
if I could be your hero,
you could be my man
If you thought I was smart,
If you thought I was neat
It would melt my heart,
and make it skip a beat.

If I had famous parents
would you pay attention
to every word I say?
I'd know you were lying, it would
leave me crying
I hope you know that's not the
way to do things.

I know it's hard to love a person
you can't really see
But I don't get discouraged,
it doesn't have to be

I wish I had super powers,
how nice that would be
I'd make other girls invisible,
so you'd have to look at me
I'd be drop dead gorgeous, that
you couldn't stand
If I could be your hero,
you could be my man

If I had lots of money would you
think I'm funny
and laugh at every joke I tell?
I don't think I'd like it when you'd
go HA HA HA
You're going straight to
H-E-L-L-O goodbye!

I wish I were a performer,
and you were my fan
If I could be your hero,
you could be my man
'Cause I know
you don't love me,
but I think you can
If I could be your hero,
you could be my man

They say that at nights
He simply went through by just crying
They say that he wasn’t eating
It simply didn’t suit him just taking (some food)
They swear that the sky itself
Was vibrating by listening his weeping
How he was suffering for her,
And even when he was dying he was calling at her:
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay he was singing
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay he was wailing
Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay he was singing
He was dying from mortal passion.
That a sad dove
Very early in the morning will sing
At the lonely house
Whose small doors are widely open
They swear that this dove
Is no other (thing) than his soul,
That is still waiting
For the unhappy (woman) to return.
Cucurrucucú dove, cucurrucucú don’t cry.
The stones never, dove,
What will they now of loves?
Cucurrucucú, cucurrucucú,
Cucurrucucú, cucurrucucú,
Cucurrucucú, dove, don’t cry anymore





If a last post (a real and lasting one! jajajajjajajaja) was forthcoming, I think it would be the one I'm about to post, or repost due to an edit. Lucky for you this isn't my last post...or is it?

Hey boy don't you harm that bird don't you dare to try
Start releasin' that chicken or you'll get a lickin'
That chick's too young to fry

Hey boy better take my word here's the reason why
Ya gotta feed her up steady 'til she gets ready
That chick's too young to fry

Take her back in the barnyard let her go just turn her loose
Way out there in the barnyard she'll grow up for better use

Hey boy there'll come a time some day by and by
She'll be ready for fryin' so stop your cryin'
That chick's too young to fry

Hey boy there'll come a time some day by and by
Start releasin' that chicken or you'll get a lickin'
That chick's too young to fry

Hey boy better take my word here's the reason why
Ya gotta feed her up steady 'til she gets ready
That chick's too young to fry

Take her back in the barnyard let her go then turn her loose
Way out there in the barnyard she'll grow up for better use

Hey boy there'll come a time some day by and by
She'll be ready for fryin' so stop your cryin'
That chick's too young to fry

Get away stay away come back another day
That chick's too young to fry.

though some say it's more like this   



Nunca acaba esta noche, nunca acaba | It's never ending, this night is never ending
ya pasa poca gente por las calles | there's few people on the streets already
Todos duermen, malditos, descansan, | They all sleep, damn, they rest,
y esta noche nunca acaba. | and this night is never ending.

Todo parece tranquilo y en paz | Everything seems quiet and in peace
Las penas diarias fueron arrojadas | The sorrows of yesterday were thrown away
como la ropa vieja y usada | like old wasted clothes
Y esta noche nunca acaba. | and this night is never ending

Sólo yo voy sin rumbo en la calle | Only I am walking aimlessly the street
Piso la ciudad, la insulto y la escupo, | I step on the city, I insult it and spit on it
pero se saber que nadie te espera | but it's known no one's waiting
la hace enemiga a la calle desierta | it makes it the enemy, the deserted street

Y hace tan siniestra esa calle poblada | and makes it so sinister, the crowded street
Por eso mis pies, por eso mis pies | for that my feet, for that my feet
Por eso mis pies pisan tu espalda | for that my feet step on your back
Maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad | damn city, damn city
Maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad. | damn city, damn city

Sólo yo voy sin rumbo en la calle, | Only I am walking aimlessly the street
pero los bares ya ni me saludan, | but the bars don't even say hello
las ventanas me cierran sus ojos. | the windows closed their eyes to me

Miro la cartelera del cine | I look at the billboards
no echan nada esta noche | there's nothing tonight
esta noche nunca acaba. | This night is never ending

Ojalá que llegara | May it come
el fin del mundo esta noche | the end of the world, tonight
y esta noche no acaba, nunca acaba | and this night is never ending
maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad | damn city, damn city
maldita ciudad, maldita ciudad | damn city, damn city
