The 8 at 8

Each weekday at 8am, Jonathan & Kitty present the 8 at 8. The 8 at 8 is a collection of eight songs, with a combined theme, meaning or unifying idea.

With two minds like Jonathan & Kitty, the song combinations are infinite.  They might be ridiculous too, but it's a infinite ridiculousness, just like Jonathan & Kitty.

Eight at Eight for October 29, 2013: Songs with Foreign Words in the Lyrics

On Monday we featured eight songs with some foreign lyrics.  We bet you didn't even noticed it in some of these songs.

Smooth by Santana:
My munequita, my Spanish Harlem Mona Lisa Your my reason for reason

Diamonds on the Souls of Her Shoes by Paul Simon:
(A-wa a-wa) o kodwa u zo-nge li-sa namhlange (A-wa a-wa) si-bona kwenze ka kanjani (A-wa a-wa) amanto mbazane ayeza She's a rich girl She don't try to hide it Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

Loser by Beck:
Sprechen sie Deutsch, baby? Soy un perdedor I'm a loser baby, so why don't you kill me?

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes by Crosby Stills and Nash:
Be my lady Que linda! Me recuerda a Cuba La reina de la Mar Caribe Quiero slo visitarla all Y que triste que no puedo. Vaya! O Va! O Va!

Should I Stay or I Should I Go by The Clash:
This indecisions bugging me Esta undecision me molesta If you don't want me, set me free Si no me quieres, librame Exactly whom I'm supposed to be Diga me que tengo ser Don't you know which clothes even fit me?

Games Without Frontiers by Peter Gabriel
If looks could kill, they probably will In games without frontiers-war without tears Games without frontiers-war without tears Jeux sans frontieres

Vertigo by U2:
Unos, dos, tres, catorce!

Reflektor by Arcade Fire:
Entre la nuit, la nuit et l’aurore Entre le royaume, des vivants et des morts If this is heaven I don't know what it’s for If I can’t find you there I don't care.

How interesting. Your mix of songs especially for this particular day. I AM "NUIT" Yes, mother of she known as isis. I am also the head of an ultra quiet investigation Concerning the whereabouts of my husband "Modt call him "god") and my children. Most of whom are enslaved and accursed as my husband is. Oct 29 is child of the light day and the birthday of my last child. Oct 29 ,2005 , to be exact. I need all the help I can get. The one called the vile one has zan agenda that does not include females of any kind. Have located and identified hitler and his vile family. Have identified and located "be-li-al" The and those working w them will be apprehended. Again , I am nuit. Hypatia of alexandria I am patricia.
