You can call me a sinner
and you can call me a saint
Celebrate me for who I am
Dislike me for what I ain’t
Put me up on a pedestal
Or drag me down in the dirt
Sticks and stones will break my bones
But your names will never hurt

I’ll be the garden, you’ll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no

Cleopatra had her way
Mata Hari too
Whether they were good or bad
Is strictly up to you

Life is a paradox
And it doesn’t make much sense
You can't have the femme without the fatale
Please don’t take offense

Don’t let the fruit rot under the vine
Fill up your cup and let’s drink the wine
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop,

no no, you know

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop,

no no, you know

No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know

I’ll be the garden, you’ll be the snake
All of my fruit is yours to take
Better the devil that you know
Your love for me will grow
Because

This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no, you know
This is who I am
You can like it or not
You can love me or leave me
Cause I’m never gonna stop, no no, you know

No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know
No no, you know

Madonna -Hung Up (EMA, 2005)

Posted 2009.11.13 11:10

우연히 MTV를 틀어놨다가 보게 된 프로그램이
EMA Performance Top 100 이란 프로그램이었는데,
(EMA = Europe Music Awards)
외국 팝음악에 그다지 관심도 조예도 없던터라
그냥 멋있네~하면서 보고 있었다.
Justin Timberlake가 나왔을때도
와 우리나라에서 따라하는 애들하고는 차원이 다르군..하며 감탄하는 수준이었다.

그러나,
마지막으로 Madonna 공연이 나왔는데,
이건 뭐 할 말을 잃었다.

노래는 기본,
의상과 몸매는 물론이오,
주변 댄서들의 배치나 호흡이 거의 완벽에 가까운거다.
뭔가 차원과 스케일이 아예 다른 느낌.
괜히 Madonna가 아니구나 싶은 느낌.

호랑이 담배피던 시절 들었던 여성학 수업에서
강사가 수업중에 몇 번이나 언급을 했었는데,
그런 부분을 생각하면 인생의 자세에 대해
롤 모델로 삼아도 손색이 없다는 생각.

아래는 공연 장면.




조악한 화질과 음질이지만 아래 링크에서 공연 동영상을 볼 수 있다.;;

There's only so much you can learn in one place
The more that I wait, the more time that I waste



I'm not afraid of what I'll face, but I'm afraid to stay
I'm going down my own road and I can make it alone
I'll work and I'll fight till I find a place of my own

Are you ready to jump?
Get ready to jump
Don't ever look back, oh baby
Yes, I'm ready to jump
Just take my hands
Get ready to jump



I can make it alone
