Well, punkfolkrocker, the early fifties is when I learned to speak English (born late forties) so that film would be right up my street!
I really am fascinated by the R&B songs on TV. What does it mean please when the singer mentions his girlfriend 'getting low'? In English it would mean she was feeling rather depressed, but I have a suspicion it's something a bit rude.
Flo Rida, Chris Brown, Enyo and Usher all sing brilliantly, but I often haven't much of a clue as to what about. And what are the 'Popo'? Police perhaps? Fascinating stuff!
