After following a link to the Have a big heart post containing this video…
My first thought was of the “crazy” comment exchange I had with Rincewind regarding my lost mind. And then, being a hot-blooded (if slightly worn out) male, my second thought, of course, was of trying to identify the incredible woman singing the song. I’ll spare you the embarrassing details, but searching for an answer with my limited language skills turned out to be way more difficult than I would have thought.
At any rate, it turns out that the singer is Israeli born pop-rock idol (and actress) Ninet Tayeb, doing her cover of Crazy by Gnarls Barkley. And guess what? Her native language videos are just as spectacular…
The sound and imagery alone were enough to make me love that video, but I managed to track down a translation anyway. In English, the title translates to “She Knows” – and you can read the full translation of the lyrics here.
Learn more about her at the Ninet Tayeb official website
As for the weird Muppet-like characters in the first video…
The best explanation I could find for them (the “Red Band”) is here… 😕
One thing is certain though, I agree with Ellen when she says “This video speaks to me… and for me.” 😎
I want ice water.
