Girlfriend | a music video

Girlfriend | Christine and the Queens

“Is it possible to be sexual, but to not be seen as an object? In her video “Girlfriend,” the French singer Héloïse Letissier — her body morphing between the male and female — is macho and defiant. She doesn’t offer her body: She flaunts it. The video is a glorious expression of the many selves mingling within us.” – NYTimes [Written by Gia Kourlas] Article & Video Clips ending with the video “Girlfriend” LINK

Song Lyrics:

I’m gone in a flick, but back in a second
With salted skin, rash for no reason
Boys are loading their arms, girls gasp with envy
F-f-for whom are they mimicking endlessly ?

Same old sadness in small lumps on my jaw
For lusting after is the usual freak show
May your girl come, birdie die under this spur
F-f-fingers angrily sunk on the jugular

Girlfriend
Don’t feel like a girlfriend
But lover
Damn, I’d be your lover

Yes sir, I am wet, for I abandoned my fame in the lake
Let’s see now how fast you’re breathing and how long this will all take
Those who used to pass by me think they are baffling a liar
F-f-fuck is you ? You don’t even taste much better !

Came back steaming in sweats in the morning
I muscled in for I wanted to hold him
Then shriveled to let those bird-dogs rage through
F-f-f is me ? f-f-fuck is you ? f-f-fuck is you now

Girlfriend
Don’t feel like a girlfriend
But lover
Damn, I’d be your lover

Touché, touché, touché, touché…

Brilliant piece of artistry. It will blow your mind. Highly recommend for your enjoyment and mindbending your view on sexual identity. – j.k

Don’t Lie To Me | a protest song

“I find myself quite sad these days. They say that “One picture is worth a thousand words,” so I chose 138 of them for my “Don’t Lie To Me” video! I’m grateful that music allows me to express my feelings. In my own four-minute way, I’m trying to fight against the disintegration of democracy – where truth becomes “alternative facts” and lying becomes the new norm.” – Barbra Streisand


Don’t Lie to Me
Written & Directed by Barbra Streisand

“Don’t Lie To Me” (Lyrics)
(Barbra Streisand/John Shanks/Jonas Myrin/Jay Landers)

Why can’t you just tell me the truth?
Hard to believe the things you say
Why can’t you feel the tears I cry today?
Cry today…cry today

How do you win if we all lose?
You change the facts to justify
Your lips move but your words get in the way
In the way…in the way

Kings and queens, crooks and thieves
You don’t see the forest for the trees
Head and heart, on our knees
You can’t see what we all see

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

You can build towers of bronze and gold
You can paint castles in the sky
You can use smoke and mirrors, old clichés,
Not today…not today

Kings and queens, crooks and thieves
You don’t see the forest for the trees
Hand on heart, down on knees
You can’t see what everyone sees

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

Can’t you see I’m crying?
Can’t you see we’re crying?
Where’s the new horizon?
Where’s the new horizon?

How do you sleep?
How do you sleep?
How do you sleep?

How do you sleep when the world keeps turning?
All that we built has come undone
Enough is enough
How do you sleep when the world is burning?
Everyone answers to someone

Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me
Don’t lie to me, don’t lie to me, you lie to me

Can’t you see I’m crying?
Can’t you see we’re crying?
Everyone answers to someone

Auld Lang Syne | Lea Michele


Auld Lang Syne | Lea Michele

Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind
Should all acquaintance be forgot
And days of auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
And surely you will buy your cup
And surely I’ll buy mine
And we’ll take a cup o’kindness yet
For auld lang syne

We too have run around the slopes
And picked the daisies fine
We’ve wondered many weary foot
Since auld lang syne
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
We too have paddled in the stream
From morning sun to night
But the seas between us broad have roared
From auld lang syne

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne
We’ll take a cup o’kindness yet
For auld langs syne

So This Is Christmas | John Lennon


John Lennon – So This Is Christmas

So This Is Christmas

So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong

And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
And what have we done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun

Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

War is over over
If you want it
War is over
Now.
