I'm freezing in the frost now.

Don't you feel a little lost now.

 

 

Things never turn out how we want it to be

We close our eyes and we count to three

As if we live in a lucid dream

We'll play pretend till we finally feel free

So let us dance while we're under the spell

I'm sure the poet always only means well

We take our turns in a show and tell

We'll play pretend till we finally feel free

This was always my favourite song from Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell II album, but when I saw the video to it it made my appreciation of it all that much more intense. Some of the imagery still leaves me reaching for the tissues.

Edit: Maybe some kind soul could explain how to insert a YouTube link properly to me...

Omg, I found this yesterday and it's the greatest thing ever! Warning: I've counted 36 uses of the F-word in this song. So, don't watch if that bothers you, I guess. 

 

 

 

 

I love the humour of it, it explains nicely how I feel at times.

It's supposed to be automatic. You paste the link and the video is meant to appear. I guess maybe your browser might not support it, but I'm not a programmer, so I don't know. You can also click the share button on YouTube, select 'embed', copy the code it gives you, select 'code' in the editor here (looks like <>), paste the code and click 'insert into post', and it should appear as a video. :)

Thanks, Thorn! I'll try the 'code' in the editor next time I try posting a link to a video. :thumbup:

Have a bit of Swedish folk! This is Jan Hammarlund, gay Swedish folk singer who's been out basically his whole career. This song from 1979 is about being a teenage boy and being in love with another boy. It's adorable.

 

 

Lyrics roughly translated by me:

 

Spoiler

I want to tell the whole wide world that I'm in love with Ville

When he plays his violin he's the cutest boy on the planet

he's the cutest boy on the planet

 

Ville's mum doesn't want him and me to be together

Cause we never do our homework, we just make out instead

we just make out instead

 

Ville's dad has said that he never wants to see us together again

But we meet up every night anyway and pretend to play ping-pong

 

Our teacher has said that Ville and I better not do anything stupid

We never make it to the football field, we stay in the changing room

we stay in the changing room

 

The counsellor says that this is just a phase that we're going through

But if it passes I don't want to live without him

don't want to live without him

 

Mum and dad are okay, though dad just hangs out at the pub

But if they won't let us have our love I'll tell them to go to hell

I'll tell them to go to hell

 

Ville is sweet and Ville is good and Ville tastes like honey

But neither of us is eighteen yet so neither of us is legal

 

At home they've said that if we do it again they will call the cops

That's why we've done it almost everywhere except for in bed

Except for in bed

 

But it's so nice to be in the park in the warm winds of summer

When the blood runs hot in every vein and the air lights on fire

 

I want to tell the whole wide world that I'm in love with Ville

And he's told me that I am the sweetest boy on the planet

the sweetest boy on the planet

 

I actually know Jan personally, and he's just the sweetest guy you could ever imagine.
