#10 – And absolutely no one is dead

Jeg tar med en annerledes og litt manisk godfølelselåt.

Jack Skellington er sjef i Halloween-land. Etter å ha gått lei av de samme gamle Halloween-greiene, tar han seg en tur i skogen. Ved en tilfeldighet åpner han døra til Christmas-land. Filmen Nightmare before Christmas er en animert skrekkfilm som jeg tror hele familien tåler å få med seg. Den handler om Jacks møte med et helt annet land enn det han er vant til, og hvordan han forsøker begå et kupp for å overta styringa av Christmas-land

Men ikke uventet er Christmas-land og Halloween to veldig forskjellige verdener. Dette slutter aldri å forundre Jack. Som han selv sier: ‘And absolutely no one is dead’

Både jula og halloween blir vel hva vi gjør det til. Men hvis utgangspunktet ditt er halloweensk djevelskap, så kan det være et sjokk å møte julas kjærlighetsbudskap. 🙂

What’s this

What’s this? What’s this?
There’s colour everywhere
What’s this?
There’s white things in the air
What’s this?
I can’t believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, jack, this isn’t fair
What’s this?

What’s this? What’s this?
There’s something very wrong
What’s this?
There are people singing songs
What’s this?
The streets are lined with
Little creatures laughing
Everybody seems so happy
Have I possibly gone daffy?
What is this?
What’s this?

There are children
throwing snowballs here
instead of throwing heads
They’re busy building toys
And absolutely no one’s dead
There’s frost on every window
Oh, I can’t believe my eyes
And in my bones I feel the warmth
That’s coming from inside.
Oh, look!
What’s this?
They’re hanging mistletoe, they kiss
Why that looks so unique, inspired!
They’re gathering around
to hear a story
Roasting chestnuts on a fire
What’s this?
What’s this?
In here they’ve got a
little tree, how queer
And who would ever think
And why?
They’re covering it with
tiny little things
They’ve got electric
lights on strings
And there’s a smile on everyone
So, now, correct me if I’m wrong
This looks like fun!
This looks like fun!
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
What’s this?

Oh my, what now?
The children are asleep
But look, there’s nothing underneath
No ghouls, no witches
here to scream and
scare them
Or ensnare them,

only little cozy things
Secure inside their dreamland
(sigh)
What’s this?

The monsters are all missing
And the nightmares can’t be found
And in their place there seems to be
Good feeling all around
Instead of screams, I swear
I can hear music in the air
The smell of cakes and pies
Is absolutely everywhere

The sights, the sounds!
They’re everywhere and
all around!
I’ve never felt so good before
This empty place inside
of me is filling up
I simply cannot get enough
I want it, oh, I want it!
Oh, I want it for my own
I’ve got to know
I’ve got to know
What is this place
that I have found?
What is this?
Christmas Town, hmm…

Fra filmen Nightmare Before Christmas, av Danny Elfman og Tim Burton
