Lady Gaga versus Lady Gorgor Can't Post

The singer/fashion maven versus a lady orc from the Haunted Pass of the Morannon. Who would win?

******************************************
Brothers, sisters,
I was Elf once.
We danced together
Under the Two Trees.
We sang as the soft gold of Laurelin
And the bright silver of Telperion,
Brought forth the dawn of the world.
Then I was taken.

Brothers, sisters,
In my torment I kept faith,
And I waited.
But you never came.
And when I returned you drew sword,
And when I called your names you drew bow.
Was my Eldar beauty all,
And my soul nothing?

So be it.
I will return your hatred,
And I am hungry.

Lady Gorgor would eat [In reply to] Can't Post

Lady Gaga's meat dress for breakfast.

Lord Sméagol? Gollum the Great? The Gollum! Eat fish every day, three times a day; fresh from the sea. Most Precious Gollum!

I second that.// [In reply to] Can't Post

 

Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing they evidently prefer.

Gorgor-Gaga Tour 2012 [In reply to] Can't Post

Lady Gaga and Lady Gorgor would go on a world tour in matching meat dresses, wowing crowds from Mordor to Manhattan!

I don't usually go for Lady Gorgor's music style but.... [In reply to] Can't Post

....I thought her ballad about Frodo and Sam "Caught in a Rad Bromance" was pretty catchy.

This'll be fun [In reply to] Can't Post

here's some for the beginning part...


Oh, caught in a rad bromance
Oh, caught in a rad bromance

Fra dah, Fra dah ah
Sama, Sama-ma
GorGor, oh la-la
Want some rad bromance

He feels so ugly
He’s got a disease
He caught at Weathertop
He’ll never be free
He wants some love
Love, love, love
He want some love


i dunno! first draft anyway!
EvilBlush got any more?

hmm.... [In reply to] Can't Post

They brave the horror
To fate they’re resigned
But Sauron’s on to him
If he says “It’s mine!”
They fight for love
Love, love, love
They fight for love

back to you. btw, curious how you might handle the French lyrics part. I have an idea but need to work it out.

I was thinking about the French lyrics today [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's see, we need to put in the chorus, if you want to use the one I posted already

"I want your ring and Sauron wants his revenge
you and me could have a rad bromance!
Oh, oh oh oh!
That Gollum guy just wants us not to be friends
you and me could have a rad bromance! "

As for the French lyrics, I thought the following might work:
Je ton l'anneau, et je ton le precieux, je ton l'anneau, I must have the precious!

My French might be a little wrong there (I'm not sure if precious would be masculine or feminine), but I think it's close..." I want your ring and I want the precious, I want the ring, I must have the precious!"

I just can't come up with the part before the French (the "walk, walk fashion baby..." part.

“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

Tres bon travail en les mots francaises, m'associe'! (I think) [In reply to] Can't Post

Nice work on the French words, partner! that's what I meant by ^^^ anyway. It's been a long time since high school French.

For the spoken bridge part that precedes the chorus, ("You know that I want you/and you know that I need you, etc.") how about:

(spoken by Sam:) “You can’t let me bear it,
So instead I will bear you
(‘Cuz I’m your gardener, baby)!”
He wants it bad, a rad bromance!

and then the chorus:


In Reply To
"I want your ring and Sauron wants his revenge
you and me could have a rad bromance!
Oh, oh oh oh!
That Gollum guy just wants us not to be friends
you and me could have a rad bromance! "


our chorus I think needs to be tweaked so the POV persona is consistent. the first line ("I want your ring...") sounds like it's from Gollum's POV, but the rest of it is from Sam/Frodo POV. Perhaps the first line should be tweaked so its all from Sam/Frodo's POV.
maybe:

I want some love ===>"We want some lava" (Mt Doom, a volcano)
and I want your revenge====>"and we want a Fourth Age" (we want to end the Third Age by destroying the Ring)

"That Gollum guy..." maybe that line could use some tweaking too? maybe if we stay a bit closer to the source line, but keep your idea about Gollum, such as:

I want your love and all your lover's revenge===>
"We want some lava, but that Gollum's deranged"

Thus:

We want some lava and we want a Fourth Age
you and me could have a rad bromance!
Oh oh oh oh!
We want some lava but that Gollum's deranged
you and me could have a rad bromance!

Also, we still need the "walk walk fashion baby" part, like you said. maybe something that tells their story, like

March, climb stairways, baby
Watch that Gollum he's crazy
Aagh! Aagh! Spider lady!
Run through cobweb tunnel mazes
Ouch, stung, captured, chase 'im,
To the rescue, don't get lazy
Stab, change, Orc-clothes chafing,
Work it, I'm his gardener baby!


In Reply To
Je ton l'anneau, et je ton le precieux, je ton l'anneau, I must have the precious!


since Gollum would be the persona for those lines, how about following his speech patterns a bit more, thus:

We wants it, love!
Yes we wants the precious!
Nous le voulons!
Oui nous voulons le cher!
Nous le voulons!
Yes we wants the precious!

Instead of le precieux I was thinking le cher = dear, as in expensive (precious) or as in to hold dear, might fit the meter more neatly. also i thought of omitting the word "ring"/"anneux" bc i'm not sure gollum would use that word.

another idea i had for the French bit was to use Elvish.
But my Elvish is rather non-existent! Or, because it's Lady Gorgor singing, perhaps Black Speech would be better. Either way, I don't know much about it. Frown so I'm happy to go with your idea! Smile

one more thing i'd love to have: you know the verse in the original song with the Hitchcock references (Psycho, Vertigo, Rear Window), and that double-entendre in the fourth line "Want you in my rear-/ window, baby you're sick" (my favorite part)

I'd love to have a verse that honors the double entendre as well as the references to someone's classic works. instead of Hitchcock, we somehow reference Tolkien. and somehow we fit a double-entendre in there.

something that ends with "... baby you're sick" or "baby you tease"

Um, let me try. something like:

I want your Quenya, your Sindarin schtick
Want you in my dark tunnel, baby you're sick

that's just an example. "dark tunnel" (or "dark tower" or "white tower" as in "on my....") is not nearly at the same level as "rear / window".... we should have something recognizably Tolkien just as Rear Window is recognizably Hitchcock. I'm open to ideas & feedback.

Or, it could be "Won't you pet my Bal-/ rog, oh baby you're sick"

in any event, once we have that, i think we'd have enough material for the entire song. then we'll have ourselves a hit, partner! your thoughts?

"That doesn't make much sense to me. But then again, you are quite small. Perhaps you're right."
