Law school summary writing (for exams) has put me in a bit of a strange mental state. I am fascinated by this Peter Sarstedt song, which is on the soundtrack of The Darjeeling Limited (a great Wes Anderson film …)
I thought it was a bit of a clever joke … you know, “just for fun, for a laugh a hahaha!” but it’s from 1969. Did people have my sense of humour in 1969?
Anyway, here it is. Listen to the lyrics. I’ve pasted them below. If anybody has an insight (into the song, or humour in 1969 …), please share!
You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
are all made by Balmain
And there’s diamonds and pearls in your hair (more…)
