In Zaire, was no good place to be
Free world go crazy, it's an atrocity

Go Maasai go Maasai be sharp (Today it's raining)

In Monrovia, this no good place to be
Weapon go crazy, it's an atrocity

Instant fan!! 8!

manu chao by ~kurrak
The vocals at the opening of the song reminded me of Tom Petty... not really digging this, though.

That album cover belongs on one of those 'Worst Album Covers' sites.

He ain't French no more. He was adopted by the people of Pinto Salinas, Caracas, Venezuela. You can keep Aznavour.

Heard Manu from afar at last years Coachella. Sounded great, really wanted to hang around and watch, but there were other bands to see, ya know. Think they're playing ACL this year, definitely going to make a point to see em Yeah, im digging this song

Not my favorite track, but not bad.
Decent enough song. -1 for stupid trendy (lack of) spelling.
guy's just awesome!
sounds like johnny rotten yelling in the intro...
me likey
Manu Chao reminds me a lot of the Clash back in the day. To many Rock n Roll purists in the late 70s, the Clash was just noise. But they used the sounds of the streets, with a political message. Manu Chao is also using the sounds of the streets, and a political message. The fact that the sounds of the streets are a lot more "pop crap" is our own fault.

THAT should be the least of the reasons! :nyah:
Quite a different way to make a "protest song". Very catchy tune - and (my opinion) great lyrics. As to being repetitive - how many times did Bob Dylan say "the times they are a-changing" in his signature song? Note - saw the video on you-tube - modern and innovative as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvaOgaqEBMQ
Pretty polarized feedback on MANU. I think it's a great song and always crank it up! :war:
Hummm,… I rather like it, siren and all having the sub woofer may be what is making the difference for me but, yeah, I likes it bunches.

Definitely not the best song from an usual great artist, but acceptable. Anyone else who knows his project 'P18'?
I'm with the folks on the RIGHT side of this ratings distribution! :cool:

Holy flip people...get outside your freakin borders and realize there's more to the world than sippin' starbucks and burning gasoline...I like the guy. His whole approach stretches my boundaries!
I heard this song in Greece a few years ago. It was all the rage in the clubs and cafes. I actually like it because of the world feel it has......to each their own I guess. That's the beauty of RP...IMHO
Reminds me of nails on a chalkboard..... for the love of all that is holy, stop playing this awful song......
This is really annoying. 0
MAKE IT STOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just can't find the words to say how much I DO HATE HIS STUFF!!!!!!!!!!! HE SUPER SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
:puke: Try something new man! :puke:
I can't understand what they're saying, is it English? Okay, I went and looked up the lyrics and they're even less appealing than when I couldn't understand them. I'm gona' give this one a solid 1 for total lack of creativity and refusal to learn whatever language it is that they're trying to speak.

''Da Capo!''
I was doubtfull about the studioversion of this song, but I saw them play it live on Later... with Jools Holland recently (very, very good live show on BBC television) and it blew the roof off. Amazing energy, played by a band who looked like convicts.
oh....wow.... I'm totally on the fence with this one. Its like Blue Man Group meets World music meets Joy Division
Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggghhhhhhhhh! These guys used to be good. This is my first ever 1 rating. Good rule of thumb: any song that relies heavily on a police siren as an instrument is a bad one.

Moving progressive rhythm.
i like Manu Chao

Dude, I like Manu, but how many songs are you allowed to say "this world go crazy/(fill in the blanks and end with -cy)" and still be taken seriously? Try something new man!

Wish it was Raining.
Utter crap.
I really liked that transition from Louis Armstrong's "Skokiaan." Nice work, BillG!
El Paradiso Lluvioso? Take the Volkswagen.
:arghhh: too repetitive, OVERPLAYED! :arghhh:
:bananajam: makes me feel fine
Alright. A wicked song.
Okay. Cool song.
I hated this song when I first heard it on KCRW, and I still cannot stand it. As soon as I hear that blasted siren, I mute it/change the channel. I just don't get it. :frustrated: :crashcomp:
It took me a while to get used to his voice/style, but something about the texture of his songs kept me coming back...how can you not respect someone who sings in 7 different languages?!

Can't understand all the complainers here. Take him as what he is: One very creative artist! Since years he's always changed the music he's been standing for, has mixed different styles and musicians.... Dig the music and the guy. :clap:

Who's spinning this morning? Not you -- not then, not now, not ever. The End.
:think: I love other Manu Chao stuff I've heard... this feels like a couple different songs are playing at the same time...
how can a song with this title be on this station?

Cheap shot. No place for that here. Grow up. What, were you born in a barn? No need to ask. :beat: Kokoloco53 wrote:

The Show is still out there. It's Midnight at the Belmont Theater in Nashville. All Virgins are, of course, welcomed with a very Transforming Experience. Imagine popular country comedian Jeff Foxworthy in high heels and fishnets. If that image is a little too "intense" for you, you may not want to read the rest of... YOU MIGHT BE A "ROCKY" FAN IF... by Twentieth Century Foxworthy ...you spend $50 per month on rice, and you can't stand the taste of the stuff ...you shout out AP lines during sex ...you gladly shell out $150 for a mint condition copy of the rare Outer Mongolian "RHS" cast album, but you couldn't afford to pay your rent this month ...you've named your children Brad and Janet ...Perry Bedden has had to get a restraining order against you ...you sat through all 13 hours of "I, Claudius" just to see Patricia Quinn ...you have to remove your makeup with a power sander ...you can't understand how the Academy could've possibly picked "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" for Best Picture of 1975 when "RHPS" was the obvious choice ...you celebrated Tim Curry's birthday and not your own ...you don't have "tennis elbow" but you do have "Time Warper's knee" ...you know the words to "Hot Patootie" by heart, but you can't seem to remember any of the answers on your history final ...you're still reading this ...you wish Congress would tackle the *really* vital issues, like the "hoopla" vs. "up now" controversy ...you still remember how to do the rock (and the swim!) ...you've got Sal Piro's phone number on "speed dial" ...J. Alan Pfaff asks *you* about "RHPS" ...you throw rice and toilet paper at the screen during "Pocahontas" ...you never watch more than the first half hour of "Saturday Night Live" (except for the Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, and Meat Loaf episodes which you've got on tape) ...you've got a big poster of Saddam Hussien on your wall (OOPS! That's a sign that you might be an _Iraqi_ fan!) ...you've watched Tim Curry's "The Worst Witch" more than once ...the salespeople at the local lingiere shops know you by name, and you're a guy ...you finally save up enough for a trip to England, and once you get there, you skip Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and Stonehenge and head straight for Oakley Court to see where "RHPS" was filmed ...your car horn plays "The Time Warp" ...your favorite charity is "Save the Hunchbacks" ...you play Eddie in the show's cast, and you gained 75 pounds and had half your brain removed for the sake of "realism" ...you plan on assassinating Tim Robbins so you and Susan Sarandon can be "together at last!" ..at every meal you serve the same thing: meatloaf! >---{ T H E E N D }---< *****
I was going to buy this, and then it was the freebie on iTunes last week! Score!

Innovative?! The clubish siren in the background? The endless repetition? I wouldn't be surprised if the lyrics even read as 'to da xtreme'. Innovative? Really? :rolleyes: But to each their own. It just sticks out like a sore thumb in RP's playlist. EDIT: Ha! Same thoughts, same time! I'm with the guy below. : )

How can you not love a song about that old lab favorite, the Rainin pipet? Sorry, geek moment there. :)
When I read all those comments here I remember the discussions I had with others about Manu Chao and his music.... Love his style and most of his projects. Anyone else who knows 'P18'?

saw them at a show. thought they were mellow, but are REALLY hard core. a little too much for me. kinda like a punk concert.

A great mouthful of nothing, just like it's been for several years now. This man is the guru of the "Deepest Emptiness". Sorry, but I do not like his... what he calls music. "La mano negra" was quite good, his "Clandestino" was listenable... but then... :puke: AU SECOOOUUURS !
I saw Manu Chao a few weeks ago in Toronto. Great concert. Sounded a lot more ska than I was expecting but that wasn't a problem at all. Amazing energy this guy has! But despite being a sold-out show, there seemed to be very little promotion or awareness. By contrast, I was in Montreal last week and he opened their Jazz Fest. He was a much bigger deal there.
Can't wait untill it's released!
