addendum May 28, 2015:


argh!
I subconsciously totally copied/ripped off Grace Jones' song "well well well" (2008) www.lastfm.de/music/Grace+Jones/_/Well+Well+Well. No wonder the vocal intro seemed so natural and perfect to me. I just played the Grace Jones CD again after a couple of years and was shocked. Not only by Ms Jones awesomeness but also by my own crooked memory: obviously remembering the song but not that it wasn't mine. Shame!!
So, everybody who likes this song by all means get and promote Grace Jones' fabulous (and much more original) song "well well well" from her awesome album "Hurricane" (2008): www.lastfm.de/music/Grace+Jones/Hurricane !

Please accept my sincere apologies for my assisting in the exploitation & erasure of a Black Womyn's Art and Power Originating & Ownership!
If anybody has Ms Jones' address... I sure owe Her a fruit basket. Should the revenue of my track ever exceed 10€, I'll donate 30% to the women's rights organisation MADRE. (my favorite organization to donate to bc they're protecting the receivers' dignity in their donation campaigns & are womyn centered. This is rare and a relief for me, as in the traditional donation industry I can only choose between supporting colonialist and dehumanizing images or not donating at all. check out MADRE online!! www.madre.org).

sincerely,
Noah

ps: the only thing I can find positive about this is that I happened to realized the ripoff myself...
pps: Please celebrate Grace Jones' "Hurricane" as much as it deserves to be celebrated: www.lastfm.de/music/Grace+Jones/Hurricane .
pps: Womyn and Ms Jones: if you think it ain't right & want me to put the song down pls let me know!!

lyrics

lyrics (reproduction ^^ only with written permission):



well well well
well well well


let's stay at the Hammam Baby
let Goldmary go
do not read commentary sections... ever...just : no.
you are allowed to simply leave
when they start pouring the white whine
you are far too precious darling
you are nothing but fine.

well well well
well well well

leave any conference panel
If you so please
the curators sucked
it's not your business to appease
you can call shit out
or just be(at) to the beat
you have never been too loud
it's your well-being we need


passive-aggressiveness damages all of your arteries
answering to inappropriatenesses why should you why
just 'cause you have those atomic and gigantic coping skills
you don’t need to use them all the time
be nothing but well sistren, and then TESTIFY

testify, you gon testify
well well well
ooh sistren asterisk
ooh sistren asterisk
you gon testify

well well well

Songtext Übersetzung ins Deutsche (Nachdruck/Abbildung nur mit schriftlicher Erlaubnis):



Lass uns im Hammam bleiben, Süße,
lass Goldmarie gehn
Lies niemals Kommentarspalten... lass es sein.
Du darfst einfach weggehen
wenn sie white whine ausschenken
du bist viel zu wertvoll
du bist einfach nur toll

well well well
well well well

Verlasse jeden Konferenztisch
wenn du das möchtest
Die Kurator/innen haben versagt
es ist nicht deine Aufgabe, zu beschwichtigen.
Du kannst Scheiße beim Namen nennen
oder einfach zum Beat sein
Du warst noch nie zu laut
wir brauchen dein Wohlergehen

Passiv-Aggressivität beschädigt deine Arterien
Zu antworten auf unangemessene Fragen, warum solltest du das, warum.
Nur weil du so unfassbar viel bewältigen kannst
heißt das nicht, dass du das die ganze Zeit auch musst.
Sei nur wohl Schwester* und dann erzähle deine Erfahrung

Erzähle, wie es war, wie es ist. Du wirst erzählen, wie es war, wie es ist.
well well well
ooh Schwester Sternchen
Du wirst erzählen.

well well well
