That was a fun clip. *:)*
Unfortunately the second one, the live performance, wouldn't load. All I got was a message saying "this video is currently unavailable." *:|*

It's sad when a repressive regime is in control of a country.
The freedom to speak out on issues that matter is usually the first thing to be taken away.
Very sad indeed. :(

But I loved the Láska je láska clip. *:)*

I am not sure if people read this topic anymore, but I enjoyed some of the music posted here, so figured I could post some for some future visitors maybe xD
So, I believe this to be the most crushing, realistic and tears-engaging song about break-up, and also this particular performance is so strong that it took me half an hour to come to my senses after I watched it for the first time.
Damien Rice - i remember (live on BBC):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J74gTgea5-I

As I come from an ex-Yugoslavian country that is still homophobic (but slightly changing that), I had a hard time growing up to find anything about "forbidden love" in the public sphere, but during the '80-es (I was born in 1985) there was "new wave" in music, which produced some of the best Yugoslav pop-rock music, and some of the bands were able to pull off some provocative topics in their lyrics.
I discovered this music years later, while i was growing up. And this is the first song about love between women made in our country, in 1984. It is electro-pop, and sounds refreshingly new, even today. Lyrics are a bit messy, basically, she is singing about her girlfriend named Ana, in the beginning she says: "Ana, you know very well that what youre doing to me is forbidden at our's (at our country)/ Ana, you know very well that what you're doing to me is forbidden for us" and in the refrain she repeats: "Ana, why do I love you so madly" :D
Videosex is one of the best ex-Yu groups, so if someone likes electro-pop from the '80-es, their first two albums are just a perfection!

Exceptional.
This is what can happen when musicians make the music. Image

Sad to hear that there are still so many homophobic countries/cultures around the world.
Let's hope there are soon steps being taken to change all that.

Liked the song, just wish I could understand the words. :oops:

Oh.
Again.

I am glad you liked the song. i was able to find a translation online, so here it is :D :
Videosex – Ana (Video Sex ’84, 1984)
Ana, you’re well aware
What you’re doing is forbidden here
First time, women’s toilet
I really didn’t want it
Inflammatory secret gained freedom
Smiling eyes looking at me
I’d love to disappear
I’d love to, I’d love to so much
I’d love to be able to love you
Ana, why do I love you like crazy?
Ana, I’m well aware
You hate me when you’re alone
Yesterday evening I was cursing the bad luck
You’re well aware
You can come over any time
Your sighs mean a lot to me
Your wax is full of passion
Ana, why do I love you like crazy?

Hope now the song has more meaning :)

Thanks for the words.
Loving emotions were evident when I played to the vid again.
They put so much more meaning into the song.

A young girl's paean to her beloved, still as fresh and strong as when it was written centuries ago.
I found a translation and hacked it into a singable form;

Tis my love and my treasure
Who has gone to Glengarry
With his tresses of gold
And his kisses like honey

And you suit what you're wearing
More than any man living
You look best in your clothing
Of any I've seen

You look best in your stockings
And your comfortable schoon
A green coat from London
That cost many crowns

When you come to the fair
You'll bring home all my gear
My small belt and comb
And the band for my hair

And my Edinburgh belt
And my Dunkeld head-dress
We'll get cattle from Mearns
And sheep from Caithness

And rear them in a sheiling
In the dear Braes of Rannoch
In the hut of sweet dalliance
That's enclosed by the trees

The cuckoo will sing sweetly
To us both from the branches
The brown stag and its roaring
Will wake us in the morning.

Beautiful rendition by Ms Fowlis.
Beautiful words from centuries passed too.

Thanks for translating and posting Dave. *:)*

A powerful John Hiatt song of loss, VERY ably performed by these three young women...Sarah Jarosz looks like Acquart's sister, no?
