Nouveau Parfum Video & Lyrics

Original Lyrics

Soit Prada, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Cartier, Azarro, Sisley, Escada, Gucci Naf Naf, Nina Ricci, Lancôme, Kenzo et encore, encore

Soit Bruno Banani, La Bastidane, Estée Lauder, Guerlain, Burberry et Thierry Mugler, Bourjois, Chloé, Jean-Paul Gautier, Valentino et je n’en sais plus

Lequel je choisis?
Pourquoi je choisis?
Qui veut que je choisisse?
Je ne suis pas leur produit
De beauté, d’préciosité Ils ne peuvent pas me changer
Sans pareille, nonpareille,
Le nouveau parfum, c’est moi-même, le nouveau parfum, c’est moi
Nouveau parfum, nouveau parfum

Soit Roberto Cavalli, Bulgari, Givengi, Dolce & Gabana, Paco rabana, soit Lacoste Tommy Hilfiger, Yves Saint Laurent et je n’en sais plus

Lequel je choisis?
Pourquoi je choisis?
Qui veut que je choisisse?
Je ne suis pas leur produit
De beauté, d’préciosité
Ils ne peuvent pas me changer
Sans pareille, nonpareille,
Le nouveau parfum, c’est moi-même, le nouveau parfum, c’est moi
Nouveau parfum

De beauté, d’préciosité
Ils ne peuvent pas me changer
Sans pareille, nonpareille,
Le nouveau parfum, c’est moi-même, le nouveau parfum, c’est moi
Nouveau parfum Nouveau parfum Nouveau parfum

English translation

Is it gonna be Prada, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Cartier, Azarro, Sisley, Escada, Gucci Naf Naf, Nina Ricci, Lancôme, Kenzo, or still more?
Is it gonna be Bruno Banani, La Bastidane, Estée Lauder, Guerlain, Burberry and Thierry Mugler, Bourjois, Chloé, Jean-Paul Gautier, Valentino?
I just don’t know anymore

Which do I choose? Why do I choose it? Who’s making me choose it? I’m not their product As for beauty and preciousness, They can’t change me Matchless, without equal, The new perfume is myself. The new perfume is me. New perfume

Will it be Cavalli, Bulgari, Givengi, Dolce & Gabana, Paco rabana, or Lacoste, Tommy Hilfiger, Yves Saint Laurent? I just don’t know anymore,

Which do I choose?
Why do I choose it?
Who’s making me choose it?
I’m not their product
As for beauty and preciousness,
They can’t change me
Matchless, without equal,
The new perfume is myself.
The new perfume is me.
New perfume

As for beauty and preciousness,
They can’t change me
Matchless, without equal,
The new perfume is myself.
The new perfume is me.
New perfume

Lovely song, equally lovely video to express the sentiment.

The Summer of My Last Innocence | Poetry

innocence tag cloud ©2013 traci gregory 

As I drive into the hills
The towns roll by
Ballground
Jasper
Ellijay
There is a melody,
a cadence to these names.

I’ve ridden these roads my entire life
Moving from the city
To my mountain kin
And back again.

The mountains tug at me
Pull me
Call out to me
Drawing me inexorably to my past.

You ask, what did I leave here?
My youth?
No, it was intact when I left.
My virginity?
No, gone before I got here.
Then what?

That summer
The summer of my last innocence
The world changed
And it wasn’t safe for me anymore.
No matter how many times
I travel these roads
I can’t reclaim my safety here.

Or anywhere.
These mountains aren’t my refuge
Or my asylum,
as much as I want them to be.
I still need a shield for my heart
And the lance I craft with words
To keep the world at bay.

Up in the Country

I was raised in a small town in the South.

“I was born in the Blue Ridge mountains, at the foot of the Appalachia Trail.”

I grew up in the Sixties, with my mother, step-father and two younger brothers. My mother had “Help” when I was growing up, not live-in help, but help a few days a week who cleaned the bathrooms and mopped floors and ironed.

Juanita, Marie, Jessee.

They were soft, sweet-smelling Black women and they made my house smell fresh and clean. They made me feel like a person instead of a ghost in my mother’s house.

This is our story. All the way back to Appalachia, up in the country.

 

Her parents were as mismatched as ever a couple was. He was a cocky kid from Copperhill, child of abusive parents and a broken home in the 40’s. She from a union still together in name: her father an alcoholic womanizer and her mother afraid of everything, her husband and 7 children included.

He, Carl, at 17, had pronounced to his friends that he was marrying the prettiest girl in Blue Ridge.

Dan, not a close friend, but someone to drink with, and brag to, responded with a snort. “You don’t even know the prettiest girl in Blue Ridge.”

“Yes, by damn, I do.  Marilyn Hunt.”

“Not even close, you dumbass. The prettiest girls in Blue Ridge are the Mashburn girls. Four of em,”

“Yeah? Who’s the prettiest of the four?”

“That’d be Miss Amurica. “

“Thought you said they was Mashburns?”

“They are, you dumb redneck, we call her that cos she’s a beauty queen.  One a these days she’ll be in the Miss America contest. And she’ll win it too.”

“Which’n is that? The one you call Miss Amurica?”

“That’d be Rubee. She’s the third one.”

“Rubee? Then that’s who I’m marryin’.”

“You ain’t even met her. You just heard about her. How you aim to marry her, Carl?

Why do you want to work in entertainment?

What are the top 3 main issues facing the entertainment industry today?

1)      Understanding that the influence movies hold over audiences is not just monetary; the real thoughts, actions, expectations of audiences are influenced, perhaps even subtly directed by the films they watch,

2)      And then directing that influence to a higher level of consciousness, not a baser one.

3)      To stretch and grow and not churn out the same old stuff that always sells, but to CREATE

flwWhy do you want to work in entertainment?

Because I believe as a writer I have something to offer that is both unique and of a higher consciousness.

Who is your role model in the entertainment industry and why?

Some days, Andrew Lloyd Webber: he has taken the musical to a level that approaches  transcendental. . . however often you witness his work, new or old, it takes you over.  Pure Magic.

 billy crystalOther days, Billy Crystal who understands nuance and subtlety, and expresses the irony of day-to-day life like no one else.

 Some days, Johnny Cusack, who can be himself and be so quiet about it.  Doing Hollywood and being Hollywood are very different things.

 And then it is Johnny Depp, who makes himself over beautifully, richly, in every role he plays, and is believable in every strange turn.

You Can Be Hurt by Love or Healed by the Same

Timing is Everything

I’m a big one to put my life to music in my mind as if my memories are on the big screen; there is always a soundtrack … the one I arrange.

Today my soundtrack is Garrett Hedlund from the movie Country Strong.  He sings a couple of things I really like, but my favorite, hands down, is Timing is Everything.

left-quoteWhen the stars line up, and you catch a break, people think you’re lucky, but you know its grace †

The last verse,

left-quoteCause you can be hurt by love, or healed by the same. Timing is everything

makes me think about this soul revival thing I have going on in my life.

I’ll admit, I entertained this new relationship because I was encouraged by that remembered wild-heart 15 year-old frisson  that overcame me in the beginning.

But over the last few weeks I’ve developed a warmer, richer, perhaps deeper relationship than a 15 year-old could manage; and while I’ll admit the 16 year-old boy that caught my eye and my heart 45 years ago is still warming my heart … I’ve come to be enamored of the man he has become.

I don’t know a lot of 15 year-olds who have a good concept of adulthood, or an idea of who or what they will be when they reach it.  My recollection of being that age is that I was interested in right now, and gave no thought to tomorrow.

(That’s probably pretty obvious.)

Hey

I don’t think I’ve ever known a man

who could set the tone of a conversation or create a mood in me with one word.

Until now.

And if you think of it, how many words can you use all alone that speak volumes?

That One word

says he knows  me,

whispers secret  things . . .

and hints at whats  to come.

Just one word to do all that -

I’ll admit, it isn’t the word.  It is his voice, his tone, his delivery that hold an intimacy that is excruciating.

And when I pick up the phone and hear that one word he says to me,  I’m done for. Gone.

Hey.

 

But, what word is it that clues you in he’ll lie to you in a heartbeat?
