Ben, j'ai vu ce titre et la première chose qui m'est venue à l'esprit a été : « Ils rigolent, là, n'est-ce pas ? Parce que ce sera bien trop facile... »

And on the other hand, it could be a bit of an impediment, knowing a subject TOO well. There's some interesting synchronicity, though. I don't often write in French (not my first language), but Thursday afternoon I got a really great little prechorus melody and lyric en français. Might have to work on that.

So, Brooke, how's your langue de Balzac, Voltaire et Corneille?

I'm trying to come up with a way to sing "Kissing - the only french I know", without it being cringingly crudworthy.

Don't know much about the French I took.
But I do know that I love you.
And I know that if you love me too
What a wonderful world this would be.



(I seem to recall perhaps Noah likes this song.)
If I had a dollar for every one of my songs j$ has called a 90s pastiche, I'd have $1 for every song I've written.

Who could forget this one?



Originally recorded as this:


...but the record company (EMI, I think) weren't too keen on a song about a psychopathic gay teenage boy, or the line "He gave me head". When The Dammed, The Clash, Siouxsie etc covered the song, they invariably chickened out and changed it to 'He gave me hell'.

But how to censor the song? Simple! Write a completely different song in a completely different language about something completely different. And re-record it to the same backing with a different vocalist. And just to make really sure, pretend that it's one substitute vocalist doing it, while the real substitute vocalist is the uncredited producer.

Because a song in French about a cat getting burned by exploding whiskey is inoffensive, compared to one about boys getting it on, apparently.

Hmm, this is where I was thinking to go with the cover art, too... still might :-)

Or french toast, or french fries, or French the butler or French's the mustard... so many possibilities...

So, Brooke, how's your langue de Balazac, Voltaire et Corneille?
Um...no habla francois (unless you count Lady Marmalade - my favorite karaoke song ever - yes, I do karaoke - I'm sure I'll get a hand slap for this- but I don't care because I ROCK THAT SONG!!!) - but I digress...this is your department, professor...

Sounds like a health hazard. If your Balazac is too langue - you will trip over it.

My song shall have very little other than chesses named and how much I love them, and the phrase "omelet du le fromage" repeated over and over. Previously I've been accused of putting too many ideas into one song, this time I intend to put too many songs into one idea.

Were you trying to talk like Clouseau when you said chesses?

Yes, of course (blatant lie, but wishing it were true)

And that looks like a typo. Oi. Fixed. I'v been having issues with typos and no, they're NOT DYAC-related.

Just in case that doesn't make sense:
