What are you listening to? (music)

Issacus Divus

H₃rḗǵs h₁n̥dʰéri diwsú
That's a great old school tune to rock to.

I just found this gem, with the help of an old Red Letter Media video:

Context and translation
Now, I don't pretend to know more about Japanese than what I've gleaned from years of (paying rather close attention to) anime, but I wonder if you can help me with this, @Nikolaos :

Sometimes it sounds like even native speakers will make a diphthong out of certain vowels, but predominantly long ones. That is, you might hear someone pronounce でしょう / deshō as [de̞-ɕɔʊ], rather like English 'show', instead of [de̞-ɕo:].

Isn't that what he does here (unless I'm getting the wrong word):
Kyō ha ikanai de sūpāmāketto ni.
Sounds like there's a 'glide' there, like English 'day'.

Just when you think you've got Russian pegged, it comes undone. I would have assumed the gen. plural of небо would rather be *небёс. In fact, so it should be, & the Polish lyric corroborates. Увы!

I'v heard небёс before. Could have been a dialect of some sort.

Your bitch is so dumb that I wanna shoot her.
Your bitch flies so low that mine is a fucking jet compared to her.

One of my favourite songs from him:


Rough translation.

Enough! You remind me of a zombie.
To eat my brain (i.e. to nag) - is your new hobby
You were the queen of dance
And now, with a cigarette and have the shakes.
I remember how you were sweating, not under me but because of your school work.
You know, now.
Your mom is no longer proud of you
Your dad is no longer trying to hook you up with the jobs.
Now you're either tired or have short bursts of energy.
You're rushing to me at high speed.
How can I tell you? I want you to quickly undress .
You don't know how to quit. It's all just stupid courage.
Baby, you know, no matter how much you want it,
I am your best chance of living free, but I will not be faithful to you.
No. Not possible. "for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer" these words will never happen.
But your criminal hips go up and down. Again and again.
You are not just another story.
You are burning me alive. Ms. Crematory.

Now, run and tell everyone.
What you've just been through.
But no one is interested in your problems.
And the only thing you have left is the smoke in your hair.

Smoke in your hair. In your black hair.
Smoke in your hair. In your black hair.
Here it is. Your happiness.
Here it is. Your happiness.
