Right, Colonel! I mean…what the heck is that supposed to mean??? A lot of SW’s have badly written lyrics in their theme songs (especially in some of the earlier films); but, somehow none of those can compare with the “treats” (I mean that sarcastically of course) we are given in KEOMA and MANNAJA. With those earlier theme songs, you could just chuckle for a second…and then sit back and enjoy the rest of the film without having to dwell on whatever badly pronounced, or badly written lyrics there might have been in the song. However, in KEOMA and MANNAJA you can’t escape the damned stuff because it is right there in your face the whole time…commenting on the story (unnecessarily I must add!) as it unfolds.
I certainly agree that the MUSIC sets the tone and atmosphere for the whole film. But, the VOCALS (more accurately the ridiculous mispronunciation of the badly written lyrics) almost destroy that atmosphere.
But, of course, this is only my opinion…
