In a song or a poem, authors often change the grammar a little, so as to have a better rhyme or the correct rythme. In this song, we should read “it doesn’t sound the same” and “I should have given you”.
Pharell William’s video got a Grammy award yesterday… Here is yet another version of his world famous video, but this time it is different… It has been made by people at Deaf Camp (in Camp Mark 7) in American Sign Language.
Late last month, Rattani and a group of Mipsterz (= Muslim hipsters) released a video to the tune of the Jay-Z song “Somewhere in America” .
The video shows diverse Muslim women who choose to wear the hijab, or head covering, and do so with individual style. The women are also seen doing quirky, random things like skateboarding, walking around a forest, and other hipster-esque escapades.
These women are lawyers, doctors, athletes, mothers, shoppers, but above all they are powerful Muslim American women… and they are hipsters!
The video has sparked huge amounts of commentary, both positive and negative.
“I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There’s just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I don’t need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you baby
