Гэхдээ би чамтай хамт байвал охин минь
Бүх зүйл ижил байж болохгүй.
Яагаад гэвэл би одоо шувуу шиг эрх чөлөөтэй,
Мөн энэ шувууг та өөрчилж чадахгүй.
Мөн энэ шувууг та өөрчилж чадахгүй.

has eaten her language
By drinking (tronc=trunk but this could be a sound, too) my whisky
concerning me
slept little, exhausted, teased
I have had to sleep in the gutter
Where I’ve had a flash
Hou! Hou! Hou! Hou!
In four colours

Come on!
One morning
A darling (oruppy) came toward me
Doll (or: female) from cellophane
chinese hair
a patch
A snout of wood
has drunken my beer
In a big glass
of caoutchouc
Hou! Hou! Hou! Hou!
Like an Indian in his iglu

It slides for me
It slides for me
It slides for me me me me me
It slides for me
Hou! Hou! Hou! Hou!
It slides for me



Come on! The girl
what a foot!
What a vibration!
Of sending itself
To the floor mat
Rasped, ruined, exhausted, satisfied
“You are the king of the divan!”
That’s what she said to me while passing by
Hou! Hou! Hou! Hou!
I am the King of the divan

It slides for me
It slides for me
It slides for me me me me me
It slides for me
Hou! Hou! Hou! Hou!
It slides for me

About the Elton Motella / Plastic Bertrand

"From here it all goes a little strange though as a French version of the song is created by Lacomblez. Lou De Pryk and Lacomblez were producer and lyricist at RKM publishing at the time and with lyrics too controversial to be adapted Lacomblez created the meaningless stew of words that became 'Ca Plane' Pour Moi' to the tune of 'Jet Boy Jet Girl.'

Interestingly the front person and name for the artist performing this version is Plastic Bertrand. Plastic Bertrand is Roger Jouret, Elton Motello's drummer (that's him on the far left opposite). Even more interestingly it's claimed that Plastic Bertrand was just a front person and did not even sing on any of his records up until 1980 and that the producer of said single called Lou De Pryk again with RKM was responsible for the vocals. A court case in 2006 settled that Plastic was indeed the singer."

In 2010, after a panel of experts spent three months studying the original track and a 2006 version, a linguist announced that it was Deprijck on the original “Ça Plane Pour Moi” and not Roger Jouret, the man behind Plastic Bertrand. Jouret then claimed that he was victimized by Deprijck and forced to take credit for the vocals.

You have to read this! Imagine me cranking that in the uber-hetero dorms of the US Air Force Academy in the early 1980s. Yes, I did that before intramural competitions to get pumped. Even I am put off by the lyrics. I have a habit of visualizing things and the lyrics were simply not for me. However, that sax line rocks, and I didn't care about the lyrics. I cranked those lyrics and people wondered how clueless I could be. Did I know where I was? Well, I didn't care. I prefer less sexualized, crass lyrids but the song rocks epically! Thanks for bringing me back! The backing track, by the way, was NOT mixed as well in the Sonic Youth song that was played just after. Play that fat sax!

@Oscar...I enjoyed reading that interview. thanks! I've had access to The Lighthouse for ages now and have yet to watch it because I always feel I need to be in the right mood/setting. It's raining in Jersey today, and I have no overtime tutoring for the first time in a while. I think I'll turn the lights out around 4PM, open up the blinds to let the greyness seep into the room, pour a bourbon, and get my Lighthouse on!

Hi everyone! Last night I dreamed I was looking on Netflix to see if it streamed “Sex and Broadcasting” so a friend could watch it. Instead I found a game show produced by WFMU, a la MTV’s “Remote Control.” And Ken was the host. It was a kinda fucked up game show that was hard to figure out. Sounds about right.

As a side note to same music, different song, in our Catholic hymnal during practice it was pointed out some songs have "meter" written down like something such as 3744 or something and THAT means you could sing that song to another one with the same meter.
