And further related to music news:

Andrew, Have you heard the German song Schnappi currently on the charts here in Australia after already going gang-busters in Europe? The video clip is especially cute with its krokidil, and the song is one of those so annoyingly catchy tunes you can't get it of your head. Knowing your love of all things Deutsch, I thought you might appreciate these lyrics

Feel free to now sing along next time you hear it:

Ich bin Schnappi das kleine Krokodil,
komm aus Ägypten das liegt direkt am Nil;
zuerst lag ich in einem Ei,
dann schni schna schnappte ich mich frei.

schni schna schnappi schnappi schnappi schnapp
schni schna schnappi schnappi schnappi schnapp

Ich bin Schnappi das kleine Krokodil,
hab scharfe Zδhne und davon ganz sch Än viel
ich schnapp mir was ich schnappen kann
ja schnapp zu weil ich das so gut kann.


Ich bin Schnappi das kleine Krokodil,
ich schnappe gern das ist mein Lieblingsspiel
ich schleich mich an die Mama ran
und zeig ihr wie ich schnappen kann!


ich bin Schnappi das kleine Krokodil
und vom Schnappen da krieg ich nicht zuviel,
ich beiss den Papi kurz ins Bein
und dann dann schlafe ich einfach ein.

And, in further music news. Robbie Williams has announced that he will be touring Australia next year AND The Backstreet Boys have announced that as part of their latest world tour they also have stated their hope and intention to tour Down Under next year.

The Robster AND the possability of The Backdoor Boys?!!! Ohhh .... my ..... Brad ..... be still be beating gay heart!! I can't type any more now, you will have to excuse me whilst I move away from the keypad and scream like a teenage girl ...

Bodes, do you get why I keep telling you that you should start your own blog?! I mean dude, why hide newsworthy posts in my comments? You should let them out to see the light of day. Which doesn't mean that I don't like your commenting, but posts like this deserve better.

Although, I'd have to snap you a 'z' if you ever got more link traffic than me... though given how popular your other sites are, that's prolly a given. Bitch.

bodhi, the thing this world needed least was yet another mention of the crappyschnappy phenomena. augh! ;)

Bodhi said...

Ich liebe dich!, Schnappi :-)

Worldpeace and a Speedboat, I'm afraid I have always been a sucker (no comment, bitches) for all those quirky one-hit-wonder songs. C'mon W&S, can't I tempt you in at least a little mutual Macarena or Walk the Dinosaur song?

Heyyyyyyyyyy Macarena?

Boom Boom, shaka laka laka Boom?

PS. Yes, TOA, sweetie darling sweetie. I hear you ... "blah blah blah blah blog blah". What -ever!

The Other Andrew said...

Bodes, you are so, so wrong. I hate those novely songs! There is a particular tradition of the 'crap Summer tune'... 'Agadoo', 'The Macarena', 'The Ketchup Song', whatever that hideous one by Steps with the dance routine was called...

At least Schnappi has no dance routine.

Bodhi said...

Yes, yes, Andrew, I know that its just wrong on soooo many levels, but I just can't help myself. Almost without exception, I find myself really enjoying all those novelty songs.

And yeah, I loved "Agadoo" and "The Ketchup" song too.

And that would be Boot Scootin Baby, by Steps:

My boot-scootin' baby is drivin' me crazy
My obsession from a western, my dance floor date
My rodeo romeo, a cowboy god from head to toe
Wanna make you mine, betta get in line

I love that song!

Ok, I know that you probably all now think that I need professional help. But Andrew, if you can enjoy Dr Who and Bollywood, I can love this, m'kay?
