TV Smith's Dua Sen. The politically incorrect irregular columnist combines
his idiosyncratic observations and tangential commentary into a blog...
by TV Smith
A senior songstress is releasing
a new album; her first release after her much-publicised
foray into acting. Satirist TV
Smith speculates on the choice of cover
versions and adapted lyrics...
01 How Deep Is Your Syringe
(adapted from "How Deep Is Your Love"
originally performed by The Bee Gees)
"How deep is your syringe, I really need to
Cause they're living in a world of fools,
Breaking me down, when they could not find a trace..."
(adapted from "Superstar" originally performed
by Karen Carpenter)
"Don't you remember you told me you loved me
You said you'd be coming back to the record shops
Baby, baby, baby, baby, oh, baby, I love you, I
03 It's Raining Mail
(adapted from "It's Raining Men" originally
performed by The Weather Girls)
"It's raining mail! Oh best nya! - It's raining
I'm gonna go out to learn how to hide my IP.
In her pants she will then pee.
It's raining mail! Oh best nya!
It's raining mail! Even attachments!
Long, big, spam and all
Rough and tough and strong and mean..."
04 How Bizarre
(adapted from "How Bizarre" originally
performed by OMC)
Suddenly red-blue lights flash me from above.
"Loud voice booming: Please step out of the
Probably preaching words of comfort, I just hide
The policeman taps his shades, "Is this a Mercedes
How bizarre, How bizarre, How bizarre..."
05 Video Cam Killed The Radio Star
(adapted from "Video Killed The Radio Star"
originally performed by The Bugles)
In my mind and in my car, I can't rewind I've gone
Oh-a-aho oh, Oh-a-aho oh. Video cam killed the radio
Video cam killed the radio star. I'm a radio star.
Video cam killed the radio star..."
06 They Paved Paradise
(adapted from "Big Yellow Taxi" originally
performed by Joni Mitchell)
"They paved paradise, screwed up a parking
With streetlights, a busybody and a sweeping cam.
Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know
what you've got,
Till it's gone, They paved paradise and screwed
up a parking lot..."
(adapted from "Kerana" originally performed
by The Alleycats)
Kamera kau, ku masih di sini. Kamera kau, ku bisa
Dan kamera kau yang menghancurkan, Ku tiada berteman.
Terkenang wajah mu aku pilu..."
08 Beat Me
(adapted from "Beat It" originally performed
by Michael Jackson)
"You have to show them that youre really
Youre playin with your life, this aint
no truth or dare
Theyll kick you, then they beat you, then
theyll tell you its fair
So beat me, cos you wanna be bad.
Just beat me, beat me, beat me, and then beat it..."
09 Siti's Love Songs
(adapted from "Silly Love Songs" originally
performed by Paul McCartney)
"Youd think that people would have had
enough of Siti's love songs.
But I look around me and I see it isnt so.
Some people wanna fill the world with Siti's love
