Oddball matchup Game 1

#1 Post by York Minster » Tue 28 Aug 2018, 8:05 am

The classic series is back ya'll. Vote and discuss. New album only 22 months away.
And tryin' to figure out what happened to 'Germaine Propaine'
"He couldn't have fell off that hard" Ain't no way
"What happened to the way you was rappin' when you was scandalous
That Canibus turned into a television evangelist"
Plus he raps with his regular voice [BOOSH! BOOSH!]
[BOOSH! BOOSH!] (What was that?) Pet Shop Boys

First of all, Tennant speaks with mistakes. There is no word Bolshy - it's wrong it's like I would sing. Ve fore een Londun or smth like this.
It's like to say: I am Inglich man. We had a word called Bolshevik, but Bolshy is something stupid. Honestly, PSB used Google translation and it was awful.
Google translated so bad. This music was OK, but the words are so stupid, the men with 5-years educated in the institute wrote such a bullshit.

My advice to PSB: if you aren't sure how it sounds - ask, call the translator or spend some time to know what it means or would it be sound good, correct.

It was done on purpose, Parkol! They said so many times. They also did the same thing on "Entschuldigung" (sp?). They just wanted that robotic pronunciation without caring much about correctness.
Also the word "bolshy" has a different meaning in English now.

As I remember they did the same problem with Se a vide. I think that if you are famous person - you could ask someone who speak that language, who can consultate. There is in Russia we laugh how Hollywood writes Russian words. For example: Born

It's like if I write Neil Tennant - Jhldkjfdlks Kjhfrdlfgkldfsb... There is no sense. They just type letters they want...

I always thought it was a proper word & have used it very occasionally along with "stroppy"!! But I know it from my UK days, I think its origin is British?

I use the Cyrillic alphabet as well, and this is disgusting, but I think the Boys meant no harm. It is your right to feel offended, but once again, they purposefully weren't aiming for correctness.

Bolshy is from Russian word Bolshevik.

Bolshe in Russian - Bigger
Bolshoy - Big, for example Bolshoy paren - Big guy.

So, it's from Russian language as Bistro in France - it's from Bystro - Faster or Quick in Russian

Yes I don't disagree that it comes from the Russian word, but you said it was not a word. It is and is in English dictionaries.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bistro
Etymology
The etymology is unclear, and is presumed to come from a regional word: bistro, bistrot, bistingo, bistraud, bistouille or bistrouille. The first recorded use of the word appears in 1884.[2] A popular folk etymology of the word claims that it originated among Russian troops who occupied Paris following the Napoleonic Wars. This etymology has been generally discredited due to its manifest illogic,[3] and to the 69 year gap between the proposed origin and the first attestation.
