oh don't be silly, just do it phonetically!

I tried to karaoke 'The Internationale' (the communist anthem) in Russian once, with phonetic lyrics. Somehow it didn't work.

that would be easier, wouldn't it.

i'm sure there's going to be some mistakes in here...i don't speak russian fluently.

oorok 1: ychite chitat. moozikalnoye sravneneye nikogda ne gelal.

oorok 2: 'there', 'their', i 'they're'.

'their' znachet vladyeniye: naprimer, "oo joe i suzy yaest koshka. ona golodna. ix koshka xochet oozhenat." b etom naprimerye "their" vwirazhayet tom, shto oo joe and suzy yaest eta koshka. (ya ne znayou, shto ya govorila, kogda ya pisala "there is a slight matter...")

they're - sokrashcheniye, kombinatsia slov "they" i "are." ya doomayou, shto eto slovo, kotoroe vwi xotela.

'there' znachet gde chto-to naxoditsa. "kniga lowit na stolye tam."

oorok 3: deathbeara cmyeshnyeye.

I enjoy the trendy mainstream stuff like The Killers, The Hives, The Strokes, Coldplay, The White Stripes...

Same here, there could be FAR worse things to listen to.

That being said, it's just a band. Take a freaking chill pill, everyone.

I think we forget that these bands aren't really that mainstream. Most people I know couldn't name a song by The Killers, The Hives, The Strokes, or The White Stripes. Coldplay would be the exception, and even then, I still know people who have no clue who they are.

Only Jenny was a Friend of Mine truly has a Duran Duran vibe. The Killers' true influence is New Order. Hell, that's how they got their name.

Wouldn't Lindsay Lohan fall into this category? I mean I know she has an album out and many friends seem to know she has an album out but we couldn't name one song on that album. Hmmmmm....

Lindasy Lohan = indie/ underground?

I like them, they are talented. But I love many more bands more them.
