VAMPIRE WEEKEND - "Oxford Comma"



Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I've seen those english dramas too
They're cruel
So if there's any other way
To spell the word
It's fine with me, with me

Why would you speak to me that way
Especially when I always said that I
Haven't got the words for you
All your diction dripping with disdain
Through the pain
I always tell the truth

Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?
I climbed to Dharamsala too, I did
I met the highest lama
His accent sounded fine
To me, to me



Check your handbook
It's no trick
Take the chapstick
Put it on your lips
Crack a smile
Adjust my tie
Know your boyfriend, unlike other guys

Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
Why would you lie about anything at all?
First the window, then it's to the wall
Lil' Jon, he always tells the truth

Check your passport
It's no trick
Take the chapstick
Put it on your lips
Crack your smile
Adjust my tie
Know your butler, unlike other guys

Why would you lie about how much coal you have?
Why would you lie about something dumb like that?
Why would you lie about anything at all?
First the window, then it's through the wall
Why would you tape my conversations?
Show your paintings
At the united nations
Lil' Jon, he always tells the truth

E anda tanta gente a perder tempo com mestres do copianço.
O que ouvi de mais parecido com isto foram os feelies...

Humm..então se é para copiar, parece-me bem que se escolham os Feelies.
Conheço pouca (tou a excluir os r.e.m, que conheci cerca de 10 anos antes) cópia dos Feelies, e eles até deixaram poucos discos, por isso vem mesmo a calhar.
E já agora,se aparecerem igualmente copistas de Raincoats, é aconselhar, por favor..

Se calhar expliquei-me mal. Os mestres do copianço são os outros (britpop e etcs). A referência aos feelies parece-me evidente, mas, aqui, é ultrapassada por música personalizada que se serve das referências para fazer algo de novo. Para que não restem dúvidas: é muito bom (quase tão bom como os feelies...)

"Grata pela dica, jovem. ;)"

Não tem que agradecer, velha amiga.

Para cópias das Raincoats vide as First Nation que agora mudaram o nome para Rings (www.myspace.com/firstnationlove).

É uma daquelas bandas, que no meu caso, me provocam sentimentos contraditórios: por vezes gosto bastante da música que fazem (talvez por me lembrarem a banda de Ana da Silva), outras, destesto-as (por achar que são uma cópia descarada das Raincoats). A ver se me consigo decidir! :-)
