Youri, Not Yanni

Clearly inspired by his two years in MLS, Frenchman Youri Djorkaeff is expressing his joy for life through a Euro-techno-rap music video (Thanks to Insider loyalist Simon for the priceless link.)

Goff what is going on? Two weeks in a row we get French CRAP music! Maybe Dos-es-Cero can counter with something less revolting?

Lyric translation:

"I played in a World Cup/I went to Red Bulls/Then I...JIZZED...IN...MY PANTS"

I think Motown just found their DP.

Where's that link to report offensive posts?

270 - I'm going to make the argument that if a phrase can make it onto network television (and be repeated in the video I referenced about 8 billion times) that it meets the lowbrow standards of internet commentary.

I think I would have preferred Yanni.

Yikes TwinCity!
As they warn on this link, it is still for mature viewers....

This sounds like it should have come out in 1993. The video also looks like video makers from 1993 were given future technology, but not future ideas.

Also, Djorkaeff's vest reminds me of McLovin. "You look like Aladdin."

Since this song sounds like it could have been on a French version of the Ghostbusters soundtrack (1980's style), I figured I'd post a link to some French rap that doesn't suck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7U14CbQDsU

I was half expecting Tony Parker, dosacero.

I prefer this one, personally...

@gocaps2: I wasn't referring to the lyrics (I didn't view that much of it), I meant the whole concept.

This has always been my favorite french hip hop song:

(Skip to about 35 seconds to get to the song)

Please. We need a new thraed so that whenever I visit Soccer Insider, I don't have Grandmaster Y (Youri Your?) looking at me.

This video was posted a looooong time ago on SF's blog (the offside rules). Next...

DadRyan,not that I have any Yanni albums, but I was in Paris last summer and heard better freestyle rap in the Luxembourg Gardens that I heard in that video.

That said, bravo to gocaps2. Very astute.

This was absolutely on The Offsides Rules a few weeks ago.

Wouldn't doubt it TwinCity. Just pokin' a little fun myself.

dosacero: excuse me mucking up your handle, hadn't seen it hear in a minute, but as I suspected you'd have something for us.

The Senate just rejected an amendment that would have effectively turned DC United into Maryland United, no matter where their stadium. It would also have forced the Maryland-hating Virginians, who currently work in DC, to commute to Maryland.

Citing the environmental consequences of the amendment, Benjamin Cardin (D-MD) stated that that the smoke from [commuting Virginians] seething anger would increase greenhouse gases by 50% and put the United States in a difficult position at the upcoming Copenhagen conference.

ah, i see, so this video appeared on some of the 3 million other soccer sites on the internet machine, so i shouldn't use it at all. gotcha.

2 blogs mention the same thing? Never!

Nobody said that Goff, but way to project on us. I just wouldn't call it a "priceless" link if it has been floating around for a while and been on other sites, that is all.

Posted by: BrownShirtGeorge | February 26, 2009 3:11 PM | Report abuse

Thanks for the link, KeeperPat. As a fan of french hip-hop, I appreciate the flashback

Posted by: ZidVicious | February 26, 2009 3:13 PM | Report abuse

i hadn't seen that!

for french hip-hop, hard to beat mc solaar... few things are smoother.

(an old but good one-- skip to 29sec and there's a soccer reference "as in soccer the stopper wants to shoot the ball")

(no footie reference here, but it's still a great tune)

=========================================

Uh, Goff has a point. You, on the other hand, do not.

What does calling it priceless have anything to do with how many sites have the link?

Tsk tsk. Grab a dictionary and get back to us.

That was one of the strangest things that I have seen in a while. With that said...what's the over/under on the Galaxy signing him, as he strives (pretends) to come back to MLS (the US) to play (get some studio time with Snoop Dog)?

Posted by: Kosh2 | February 26, 2009 3:53 PM | Report abuse

hogmesh,

mc solaar had some very smooth stuff.
the songs you linked to are some of the cheesiest stuff he ever wrote.

these are the ones that made him famous:

Eh, hard to judge the audience-- I was going for some of his catchier ones (plus I can't find my favorites tracks on youtube). I like the ones you posted as well.

Another classic:
