Touch My Body (Tuts My Barreh) / Karaoke Fail (English subtitles)
I’ve always dreamed of being a translator who could have a little fun with “interpretations”. And lyrics were meant to be interpreted, right, not, like, translated word-for-word. Take Mariah Carey’s big single, Touch My Body. She wanted the guy to “caress her like a tropical priest” – i got that too! And “rape her thighs”? Okay. Whatever. The “asbestos flaygon” I missed entirely, but this guy, apparently, did not. Listen and learn.
