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:


50 Word Thursday # 107 – An Obscure Dream

And the Words: “It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.” – H.G Wells, The Time Machine

She woke up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. The dream had been so real. She shook her boyfriend awake, who was snoring beside her and described her dream.

“I dreamt I saw a church with an obscure 8-sided tower. A priest came running after me and told me it was the end of the world. People started screaming and the sky turned black.”

Her boyfriend responded sarcastically, “It sounds plausible enough tonight, but wait until tomorrow. Wait for the common sense of the morning.”

The next day they left their hotel room to explore the town and walked down a side street they’d never been before. Her boyfriend held her hand tightly, in his overly protective way that she hadn’t made an issue of, but she stared back in amazement at the obscure 8-sided church tower and she knew what was going to happen next.
