Unza Unza Time!

No matter what fans of the old Zabranjeno Pušenje think of their rather recent facelift, i.e. the Kusturica & No Smoking Orchestra, I simply love their music (inter alia, they created the soundtrack for "Crna macka, beli macor", one of my all time favourite movies). So here's "Unza unza time" (with an absolutely great youtube videoclip, à la Kusturica) for a perfect start of the week. All together now, accompanying Dr. Nele Karajlić :-)


In the beginning at the boring time
back in 1999
The man killed the line
between punishment and crime

On the planet Earth
there was no more fun
no sex no drugs no rock'n'roll
All music turned to a fashion show

White man had British pop
and black man had soul
No, not a drop of blood
'cause video killed the rock'n'roll

And God said "Oh my God!"
what's happened to the human being
What's happened to my lovely creatures
they all became a cold machine
No more love no more power
machine without gasoline
Wake up wake up crowd
wake up from your boring dream

There is lighting
there is thunder
What's up with you I wonder
Lift your shoulders
stamp your feet
produce the extra protein
I'm gonna hit you hit you hit you hit you...
hit you with my rythm stick
So let there be... light
let there be... sound
let there be a music divine
'Cause it's Unza Unza Unza Unza time...



PS. For whatever reason (you tell me why...), this song reminds me of the Hungarian band Quimby's "The Ballad of Jerry".
