I’m sure you’ve heard of Prussian Blue, the Olsen Twins of white-power music. Just look at those little cuties – Lynx and Lamb Gaede. They celebrated their 15th birthday a week ago.
They’ve reaped tons of free publicity over the years. In fact, they have captured the fancies of Hollywood scriptwriters, magazine journalists and anti-racist watchdog groups much more than they’ve been attracting America’s youthful Caucasian hordes.
Hey, it’s a free country. Lynx and Lamb have a right to do their thing. I wanna know only this: Can they sing?
Well, I found a tune of theirs – “The Stranger” – streaming on the Web. Check it out.
Yeah, it sucks. Painfully.
I think I’ve demonstrated my integrity on this blog. If Prussian Blue rocked, I would tell you so. But I’m sorry, not only are Lynx and Lamb extremely weak as vocal stylists, they’ve got some weird kind of accents or just peculiar diction that makes half the lyrics unintelligible.
Fortunately, in this case, “The Stranger” is adapted from a Rudyard Kipling poem. It goes like this:
The Stranger within my gate,
He may be true or kind,
But he does not talk my talk —
I cannot feel his mind. ...
The men of my own stock,
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wonted to,
They are used to the lies I tell.
You know what these girls need? A new producer. I’d put them together with R. Kelly. (I’ll even supply the soda pop.)
White racialists aren’t the only ones out to manipulate children’s minds through the power of music. Multicultis are too.
Click here to hear “Celebrate the Difference” by Terri Hendrix, a Texas-based singer-songwriter who’s down with the Dixie Chicks.
It’s a cute song, and Ms. Hendrix (pictured below) has lots of talent, and goodness knows I appreciate her message. BUT... does it rub anybody else a little funny for a song on a children’s album (her 2005 CD “Celebrate the Difference”) to have such a politically indoctrinary intent?
I might be crawling out on a limb here, but I would prefer kiddie songs, when they do carry a message, to promote more general values of, you know, sharing, telling the truth, being kind to others, etc., and leave out any mention of “the color of the skin.”
Some might say, “Well, anti-racism should be one of those childhood value-lessons like sharing and telling the truth.” Umm... I don’t know. I really don’t know about that.
What do you guys think? Help me clarify my thinking here...
