Me gusta mucho el cine de Antonio Pietrangeli. Creo que es uno de los mejores directores y guionistas de Italia. Estas son algunas de las músicas originales y las canciones que se escuchan en sus películas.

Seven beautiful mixes of 60s and 70s Arabic music from the Berlin-based label Habibi Funk.

Mix 1, The Beginning, includes Take Me Back to Cairo by Karim Shourhy and Andrea Rayder (third song), a great reprise of James Brown's Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag, called Sid Redad, by Feddoul (fourth song), and ten other good songs.

Mix 5, Introducing Al Massrieen + Egyptian Jazz, is more slow and instrumental, largely music from Egypt, and also includes two themes by Algerian composer Ahmed Malek: La silence des cendres (third song) and Bolero (last song). Habibi Funk later released a beautiful album with the music of Ahmed Malek, Musique originale de films.

JOHN PRINE
LET'S TALK DIRTY IN HAWAIIAN



LIVE IN ASHEVILLE '86
JOHN PRINE



Well, I packed my bags and bought myself a ticket
For the land of the tall palm tree
Aloha Old Milwaukee, Hello Waikiki
I just stepped down from the airplane
When I heard her say, "Waka waka nuka licka, waka waka nuka licka Would you like a lei? Eh?"

Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Whisper in my ear
Kicka pooka mok a wa wahini
Are the words I long to hear
Lay your coconut on my tiki
What the hecka mooka mooka dear
Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear

It's a ukulele Honolulu sunset
Listen to the grass skirts sway
Drinking rum from a pineapple
Out on Honolulu Bay
The steel guitars all playing
While she's talking with her hands
Gimme gimme oka doka make a wish and wanta polka Words I understand Hey!

(Repeat Chorus)

Well, I boughta lota junka with my moolah
And sent it to the folks back home
I never had the chance to dance the hula
Well, I guess I should have known
When you start talking to the sweet wahini
Walking in the pale moonlight
Ohka noka whatta setta knocka-rocka-sis-boom-boccas Hope I said it right Oh!

(Repeat Chorus)

Let's talk dirty in Hawaiian
Say the words I long to hear
Aloha


I first heard this song sung by the tiny, funny voices of Petty Booka, and I loved it. It happens, which I didn't know, that this is a John Prine song, written in collaboration with Fred Koller. It appears on German Afternoons, and also, in this live rendition, on the album Live in Asheville '86, which is available as a free download.
