Spring Music Post 2: Another Longtime Favorite Band



I discovered them through Everything is Illuminated, the movie. Then my boss couldn't help telling me how much he worshiped them. I bought a CD and wow. I can see why.

I have heard their live shows are insanity. Their scene in Everything merely touches the tip. The lead singer dresses up in costume or drag and they have dancers in the band and everybody goes absolutely crazy.

"Start Wearing Purple"

Start wearing purple wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time...

Start wearing purple wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time...

I've known you since you were a twenty, and I was twenty,
and thought that some years from now
a purple little little lady will be perfect
for dirty old and useless clown...

Start wearing purple wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time...

So yeah, I know it all from Diogenes to Foucault
from Lozgechkin to Passepartout
I ja kljanus obostzav dva paltza
schto muziko poshla ot Zzukov Mu!...
Party!

Start wearing purple wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now

Start wearing purple for me now!

All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time...

So Vio-Vio-Violetta! Etta! Va-va-va-vaja dama ti moja!
Eh podayte nam karetu, votetu, i mi poedem k ebenjam!

So yeah, ah start wearing purple wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits, they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time!...
