Song Lyric Sunday – A little nonsense, now and then is relished by the wisest men.

When thinking about the songs that are out there with unintelligible lyrics I wanted to post something a bit different, something profound, something Christmassy, except I couldn’t think of anything. I did remember that I was introduced a while back to the extremely unusual vocal talents of Yma Sumac, who could sing 5 octaves! She sang with lots of growling and strange sounds, some of which are possibly Quencha, as she was known as the Peruvian Songbird. She also had a distinctive look, I can’t make up my mind if she looks frosty or smoldering?

I couldn’t find any website that showed the lyrics and so I’m inclined to think that there aren’t any real lyrics, it certainly sounds like nonsense but it is also strangely compelling. The word Obfuscate, meaning unclear, obscure or unintelligible certainly applies to this!

I hope you enjoy this.

I have also included the following word prompts:

  1. Oh, bless you, Kristian, for turning me on to this. What a great way to start my day (listening to the entire Mambo! album right now.) My favorite lyric site has the best translations of her Gopher Mambo lyrics: “scatting and vocalizations!” Thanks very much for sharing!
