  • Squeeze me while I kiss this guy...

    8. Jun. 2006, 12:42

    ...is one of the most famous misheard lyrics.
    I'm not writing a journal for that Jimi Hendrix one now, I'm trying to find lyrics to April March songs but can't find them anywhere on the net so I've started to try and transcribe them myself.
    I'm starting the ones in English first because it's easiest for me. I'm going to post these lyrics to all the wellknown lyrics sites out there and hoping to provide some sort of free promotion tool for miss March... of whom I've only recently became a fan to.
    :-)
    Question is: can you help me?

    UPDATE 1: I just figured out I can get some of April March's lyrics by looking for the original versions. The ones by France Gall, Françoise Hardy or Serge Gainsbourg for example.

    SECOND UPDATE: For a moment I thought I had even found an April March cover version of the Pixies song "Alec Eiffel" but that one is done by a band called "An April March"!
    Things are getting messy with all the bad tagging....
    Scroll down for 3 more lyrics I've found.

    THIRD UPDATE: I've been able to upload these lyrics to three sites.
    The ones on http://www.songmeanings.net/artist.php?aid=14028 are already online, so you can view and correct them.
    The ones on http://www.lyricsandsongs.com/lyrics/APRIL_MARCH.html and on http://www.letssingit.com/april-march-sr6mw.html are pending, but in a short while everyone (with or without a log-in) can view and correct them...
    and add more lyrics ofcourse!

    Thanks to moonlitkitty I've been able to get many more lyrics.
    You can find them in the comments.

    FOURTH and last UPDATE:I have found THE perfect Lyrics site; it is a wiki even, so now everyone can easily add and correct lyrics: LyricWiki:April_March

    J'essaye de trouver des lyriques des chansons près April March. Mais je ne peux pas le trouver sur l'Internet. Ainsi j'essaye de les écrire moi-même. Je commence les lyriques en anglais d'abord parce qu'ils sont les plus faciles pour moi. Je vais signaler ces lyriques à tous les sites Internet de lyriques célèbres. J'espère fournir un outil de promotion libre pour madame Mars... Je suis récemment devenu un admirateur d'elle.
    :-)
    La question est : pouvez-vous m'aider?
    (Pardon my french, I know it's not perfect).

    Here are two lyrics. I'm trying to finish one but I am not sure it's right:

    1- Nothing New

    it's really nothing new
    as far as stories go
    you're like pinoccio
    wondering what i am doing here

    you have an expertise
    that's like a real disease
    such a strong dis ease
    that I just weaken in the knees
    you're heart is so untrue
    but i love only you
    it's really nothing new

    it's really nothing new
    you're neither here nor there
    you're like swampy air
    will you stay or will you go?
    i wish i didn't care

    you're heart is so untrue
    but i love only you
    it's really nothing new
    it's really nothing new

    all the little things i do
    they're all lost on you
    i'm all alone it's true
    it's really nothing new

    it's really nothing new
    they said our game should stop (??)
    i should let you drop
    and watch you just disappear

    all the arrows in my heart (????)
    they all point to you (????)
    it's really nothing new
    it's really nothing new

    ->> the lines with question marks, I couldn't figure out,
    and here's another one, that I actually did find on the web, and think it's correct:

    2- Chick Habit

    hang up the chick habit
    hang it up, daddy,
    or you'll be alone in a quick
    hang up the chick habit
    hang it up, daddy,
    or you'll never get another fix

    i'm telling you it's not a trick
    pay attention, don't be thick
    or you're liable to get licked

    you're gonna see the reason why
    when they're spitting in your eye
    they'll be spitting in your eye

    hang up the chick habit
    hang it up, daddy,
    a girl's not a tonic or a pill
    hang up the chick habit
    hang it up, daddy,
    you're just jonesing for a spill

    oh, how your bubble's gonna burst
    when you meet another nurse
    she'll be driving in a hearse

    you're gonna need a heap of glue
    when they all catch up with you
    and they cut you up in two

    now your ears are ringing
    the birds have stopped their singing
    everything is turning grey

    no candy in your till
    no cutie left to thrill
    you're alone on a tuesday

    hang up the chick habit
    hang it up, daddy,
    or you'll be alone in a quick
    hang up the chick habit
    hang it up, daddy,
    or you'll never get another fix

    i'm telling you it's not a trick
    pay attention, don't be thick
    or you're liable to get licked

    you're gonna see the reason why
    when they're spitting in your eye
    they'll be spitting in your eye.

    ->> in the meanwhile: have fun with singing along!
    And if you have any french lyrics please let me know.
    Si vous avez des lyrique français, s.v.p. faites-moi savoir.

    UPDATE: here are 3 more lyrics I've been able to find (since April March did a cover version of these).

    3- Cet air-là

    Quand ils sont longs les jours de pluie
    Quand je suis seule quand je m'ennuie
    Que dans un rythme monotone
    Au fond de moi ton nom résonne

    Il me reste cet air-là
    Qui vient me parler de toi
    Car en chantant cet air-là
    Je ne peux penser qu'à toi

    Lorsque tour à tour dans ma vie
    Que je n't'ai pas vu de la semaine
    Que je dis comme une litanie
    À mon oreiller que je t'aime

    Il me reste cet air-là
    Qui vient me parler de toi
    Car en chantant cet air-là
    Je ne peux penser qu'à toi

    Sur le triste quai d'une gare
    Si un jour la vie nous sépare
    Ou que ton cœur change de route
    Moi j'aurai le mien en déroute

    Il restera cet air-là
    À jamais au fond de moi
    Car pour toujours cet air-là
    Parlera de toi et moi

    Il restera cet air-là
    À jamais au fond de moi
    Et je sais que cet air-là
    Te ramènera vers moi

    4- Laisse tomber les filles

    Laisse tomber les filles
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Un jour c'est toi qu'on laissera
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Un jour c'est toi qui pleureras
    Oui j'ai pleuré mais ce jour-là
    Non je ne pleurerai pas
    Non je ne pleurerai pas
    Je dirai c'est bien fait pour toi
    Je dirai ça t'apprendra
    Je dirai ça t'apprendra
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Ça te jouera un mauvais tour
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Tu le paieras un de ces jours
    On ne joue pas impunément
    Avec un cœur innocent
    Avec un cœur innocent
    Tu verras ce que je ressens
    Avant qu'il ne soit longtemps
    Avant qu'il ne soit longtemps

    La chance abandonne
    Celui qui ne sait
    Que laisser les cœurs blessés
    Tu n'auras personne
    Pour te consoler
    Tu ne l'auras pas volé

    Laisse tomber les filles
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Un jour c'est toi qu'on laissera
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Laisse tomber les filles
    Un jour c'est toi qui pleureras
    Non pour te plaindre il n'y aura
    Personne d'autre que toi
    Personne d'autre que toi
    Alors tu te rappelleras
    Tout ce que je te dis là
    Tout ce que je te dis là
  • Vive la Stereo Totally

    9. Jan. 2006, 4:15

    Belgian queer-friendly electropop band Vive La Fête is becoming popular in mainstream culture now. Their sexy-chique coolness is appealing to the masses...
    But there's hope: I've found Stereo Total (a humorist french duo in Berlin, ooh-la-la) to be the next best thing.
    And it's not just kitschpop this time because their electronic journeys occasionally even end up in unexpected country flicks.
    Nouvelle Vague!
  • The Discovery of Heaven/Helden

    16. Nov. 2005, 1:08

    Before I went on my trip to Hamburg and Scandinavia in order to promote my experimental films, I discovered Wir Sind Helden,
    Von hier an blind
    Guten Tag
    Die Reklamation
    they are a great new German band... have more hit potential then Nena, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
    Their lyrics are cute, funny and sometimes political. And best of all: their lead singers' name is Judith Holofernes!
    Goody!
