I've already posted this onto several disc. boards, but anyways, maybe
U could be
of some help.
in the song Yellow Submarine, there are these funny sailors voices as u know
(officially credited as John and Paul) shouting all this nonsense, but among
them you can hear one guy saying something like "Moshtemi vileezhat".
This comes in at 1:34; it's a nasal, fast-speaking voice, pretty distinct from
the other voices in that part of the song (those I WOULD credit to J or P).But, and Im not kiddin you, this weird voice actually says "U can
lick my [ass]", only that he says it in the Slovak language. The sound in
Slovak transcribes to "Mozte mi vylizat", which really means what I
said: "U can lick my [ass]".
always wondered who the hell that could be. It simply cant be anyone of the
Beatles, as they dont speak Slovak:). Perhaps a studio engineer having
immigrated from Czechoslovakia and voicing his true opinion on the political
regime he had managed to escape? If thatís the case, what a lucky guy, coz
this is really funny and lots of people in my country have had a good laugh
about this, especially back then in communism. Plus itís a real honour as he
may have been the only foreigner to actually appear in a Beatles recording,
except for Yoko I guess:-|
I know this is an odd issue, but any idea about who that voice belongs to?
If u cant help me, please feel free to forward this question to anyone
knowledgeable. But please do not accuse me (as a couple of people on the net
already did) of any sort of "hearing things", beatle-mysticism,
ignorance of the Beatles' recording techniques, ignorance of the basic beatles
facts, pro-western propaganda, etc, etc...:-) Thank U,
evening driving home from work I stop at an intersection not far from
home to wait for a freight train to pass so I can continue on my way. An occurrence
that I usually find frustrating, as I can't wait to arrive home
to see my wife,Patty ,and have a nice dinner.
to me on my right pulls up a White, battered ,1991,Mustang
convertible. Behind the wheel sits a young woman in her early to mid
twenties. As we exchange glances and a quick smile I notice she is happily
keeping time to the music coming out of the speakers in the Mustang.
to the Beat.
can barely hear the tune as I have my own radio tuned to the local NPR
affiliate,but the bass line is unmistakable.
duhduh duhduh duhduh duhda ! da !
turn down my radio to be certain, and yes, it's Brown Sugar . The Rolling
Stones hit from the 1971 album Sticky Fingers. Surely one of my favorite
Stones albums with the songs that hold some indelible memories for me.
In that period, amongst other popular groups and singers, The Stones were it
I continue my sideward observation, my audio voyeurism, a thought strikes
it is in the year 2001. Someone in her twenties is getting off to a song
popular 30 years ago. A song that was popular 10 years prior to her birth.
In the year 1971 I was 24 years old. I would have no more been listening to
the popular music of 1941 than I would have cut my shoulder length hair.
I listened to "old music". I loved the blues of Muddy
Waters, Howlin' Wolf ,etc.
I listened to Cisco Houston and Woody and the other folk greats of the 30s
40s and 50s.
but to many people of my generation that was still considered
popular music of our time.
music that was popular on the radio, the dance music of the late 30s and
early 40s was Swing. It was Jazz. It was the music of Louis Armstrong and
Ella Fitzgerald , Benny Goodman and a parade of others too numerous ,and for
me, as yet undiscovered to mention.
had to wait until the late 80s.as I was getting into my 40s to begin to
appreciate this music.
reasons for this aren't important. Let's just chalk it up to
at least now as I'm 53 years old I can sit behind the wheel of my 13
old Cadillac, next to the twenty something girl in her 10 year old Mustang
bop to Louis and Ella dueting on "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off".
glad I had to wait for that train to pass.

Hahahaha, that is so funny! I have to study a Miles Davis
piece for my Music A-Level over in the UK, so I might just show that to my
teacher, see what he says! Thanks for having such a cool article on the site,
