She'll KEEL your French ass. 'oller If You 'ear 'er.
Alright so this ridiculously cool reader sent in this vid recently. I know that Celine Dion and the chick in the vid are from two different countries, but I couldn't help but think about what Celine's oozebund would say if she heard this track. 'Ee would probably say, "Celine, as your oozebund I'm asking you not to cover this song. You owe it to your 'ordes of fans not to send out such a strong negative mess-uhg of oui oui non et oui non."
Hey, I don't speak French fluently (or at all) so I don't know what the rest of his rant would have been like. But yeah...
I've watched it 3 times now and from what I gather--mind you, I never finished college so I could be wrong--this chick is PISSED off. And she'll kill you if you're "her." So hopefully none of you reading this is "her." This bitch is crazy...and I love it! It's like if Regina Spektor were (even more) French, pissed off and had taken some sort of sedative right before breaking into the back room of a department store:
("I'll Kill Her" by Soko)
Seriously. She'll keel her. She's so serious, you guys.
I got the official version of the song from Soko's fansite sokomusic.com/. Press play to rock out to the slightly less sedated threat:
And listen to some strangely Bjork meets Spektor meets what I used to sound like at 8 when I recorded myself on my tape player pretending I was a talkshow host and my stuffed animals were my audience...at
myspace.com/mysoko It's sort of genius.
