Ο φίλος του blog, dnk μου θύμισε αυτό το τραγούδι των Wall Of Voodoo. Και μαζί τη σχέση του θέματός του μ’ αυτό που βιώνει ο τηλε-πολίτης της σήμερον ερχόμενος σε επαφή με το φαινόμενο των …τηλε-ειδικών.

dnk, a friend of the blog, reminded me of this song by Wall Of Voodoo. And with that, the relation of its subject with what today’s TV citizens go through, dealing with the …TV experts phenomenon.

❝ I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
And the touch of a world that is older
Turn the switch and check the number
Leave it on when in bed I slumber
I hear the rhythms of the music
I buy the product and never use it
I hear the talking of the dj
Can’t understand just what does he say?
I’m on a mexican radio
I’m on a mexican radio
I dial it in and tune the station
They talk about the u.s. inflation
I understand just a little
No comprende–it’s a riddle
I’m on a mexican radio
I’m on a mexican radio
I wish I was in Tiajuana
Eating barbequed iguana
I’d take requests on the telephone
I’m on a wavelength far from home
I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
I dial it in from south of the border
I hear the talking of the dj
Can’t understand just what does he say?
Radio radio… ❞

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
