LET'S KARAOKE 22 : ABBA - VOULEZ-VOUS

J'adore ABBA et la plupart de ses chansons. Cette chanson ici est une de mes favorites. Cette chanson a une seule phrase en français et tout le reste est en anglais. A l'université, j'ai étudié français pour deux semestres. Les classes étaient difficile et mes grades pour les classes étaient toujours C ou C+. Aprés deux semestres, j'ai arreté de etudier le langue parce que j'ai su je n'ai pas pu parler bien en Français. C'est malheureux parce que je pense le langue est trés jolie et unique. Il ne jamais trop tard por apprendre le langue encore mais je ne suis pas sûr j'ai beaucoup de temps. Laisse-moi poser la question. Voulez-vous chanter avec moi? Dit-moi oui, s'il vous plaît...

People everywhere
A sense of expectation hangin' in the air
Givin' out a spark
Across the room
Your eyes are glowin' in the dark
And here we go again
We know the start
We know the end
Masters of the scene
We've done it all before
And now we're back to get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous
Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised, no regrets

Voulez-vous
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous
Voulez-vous

I know what you think

The girl means business so I'll offer her a drink
Lookin' mighty proud
I see you leave your table
Pushin' through the crowd
I'm really glad you came
You know the rules
You know the game
Master of the scene

We've done it all before
And now we're back to get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous

Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised, no regrets
Voulez-vous
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous

And here we go again
We know the start
We know the end

Masters of the scene
We've done it all before
And now we're back to get some more

You know what I mean

Voulez-vous

Take it now or leave it
Now is all we get
Nothing promised, no regrets

Voulez-vous
Ain't no big decision
You know what to do
La question c'est voulez-vous
Voulez-vous


p/s Ma grammaire est vraiment terrible!

WHITNEY HOUSTON VERSUS CHROMEO'S MASH-UP


I was reading the posts on Classic Whitney (my favourite Whitney Houston website) when I came across a link posted by a fellow member. I wasn't expecting anything at all before I downloaded this song but boy, was I surprised after I did! The Internet Hood did a fabulous job mashing up Whitney Houston's pop classic 'How Will I Know' with Chromeo's funkier and more recent 'When The Night Falls'. The result is 'When The Night Knows', a fabulous seamless perfection that overlays a new groove to an already well-known song (or is it the other way around?). I've been listening to this song non-stop for a few days now (it's really infectious, guys) and a few of my friends also seem to be impressed by the song. I never thought that I would be listening to Whitney in a new perspective now that she is gone. Well, I guess I never knew...

p/s Do check out Chromeo's When The Night Falls video clip. Campy and hilarious!
