MUTOUREN Lyrics and Vocals: Theresa Peng Drums: Alex Zulaika Bass: Jean-Lui Toudou Guitars: Timothy Reid Composed, arranged, mixed and mastered by Steffen Offermann I am very excited to announce the first completed collaboration with my favorite girl. Many thanks to Alex, Jean-Lui and Tim for your professional help. Theresa and I are very happy with the result. I hope some of you will like it too - I know the song is a bit special. ;) EDIT - 2022-06-17: I just realized that the description on the dashboard page is not publically visible anymore once a project has been finished (I rarely mark any collaboration as finished). Here is a copy of that description. The lyrics have been modified slightly in the meantime, but the translation ist still close enough: =========== This is a song I created together with my first lady. The title, 木头人, is Chinese and means "wooden head(s)", which can also be understood as "blockhead(s)" or "stubbornhead(s)". It is difficult to translate the lyrics and convey the meaning, but here is an attempt: Blockhead/Woodhead Verse 1: He loves red wine and drinks latte macchiato during the day. Wheat is the only good beer but in the evening he prefers schnapps. Verse 2: He prefers to listen to progressive rock, has a good collection of folk and oldies, but can't do much with jazz and classical music. Pre-Chorus 1: But blockheads don't sing and dance. Blockheads don't want to be sad and cry. Blockheads do just fine on their own. Chorus 1: Such a blockhead begins to learn To say that he loves you. Such a seemingly boring man is brave enough to look at you. Solo 1 ... Bridge: Add some grease! Lubricate lightly! Does it need to be wound? Wind it up! Does it need power? Does it need to be plugged in? Launch him! The gentle heart of wood awakens and the world of sounds reveals itself. Appearances are deceiving, the heart is alert. Solo 2 ... Pre-Chorus 2: No, even a blockhead can sing and dance. A blockhead can be heartbroken and cry. It's not good for a blockhead to be alone. Chorus 2: Such a blockhead begins to learn To say he loves you. Such a seemingly dull man is brave enough to look at you. Break (Intro Reprise) Chorus 3: Such a nerd will always say he loves you. Such a blockhead will look right at you. Such a blockhead will always say he loves you. Such a blockhead will look right at you.
