Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week: Martin Solveig and Dragonette

It’s been a while, so I think it’s time once again to delve in to the “I’m not a complete musical luddite, I do like some modern music but I have to really like it for it to appear on these pages” file…and this week’s award goes Martin Solveig and Dragonette, with the feature song being one which I absolutely love, Boys & Girls.

The video is rather interesting as well…it reminds me a bit of some of the music videos from the 1980s with the dance sequences which look rather amusing these days, but in a charming way. Also, the male dancer who is at the front of the group on the left of the shot behind Dragonette at 2:22, then behind Martin and Dragonette and eventually moves behind the manikin at the front left of view…he is the spitting image of someone I work with, especially when he pulls his “looking down slightly with a serious expression” face.

[Martin]
I could be your boy and you could be mine (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I could be your toy, it would be fine (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I could be your boy and you could be mine (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Bring me all your joy, it will be fine (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
You want it or not, coming after you, I’m really hot, I know you are too
I could be your clown, I will make it right
Boy say the word, let’s get over tonight

I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world

(Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
[Dragonette]
I can’t be your girl, look at yourself (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Maybe you have taken me for someone else (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
I can’t be your girl, tu me fatigues (oh!) (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
This is not your world, boy you’re outta your league (Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)
Popsicle French boy, sure of yourself
I could get to know you but I just want to dance
I’m gonna make it clear, parlez-vous fran├žais?
Ce n’est pas possible, now, get out of my way

[Martin]
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
[Dragonette]
(I could be your girl) Come on, rock my world
[Martin]
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world

Come on, rock my world

I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
[Dragonette]
(I could be your girl) Come on, rock my world
[Martin]
I could be your boy and you could be my girl
(I could be your boy) Come on, rock my world.
