    Im a cuckoo- Belle and Sebastian

    5:28

    I created this masterpiece using the highly complex 'Microsoft Paint'.

    It took me a good 10 minutes to source, cut and copy all the images so I hope you appreciate my efforts.

    Now, enough of my bullshit... here's what you're all here for... Belle and Sebastian's 'I'm a Cuckoo'.
    And hey, what the heck, I'll throw in the lyrics just to be nice... It's singalong time! yay!

    I'm glad to see you
    I had a funny dream
    And you were wearing funny shoes
    You were going to a dance
    You were dressed like a punk but you are too young to remember

    I'm glad to see you
    I'm outside the house
    I'm not thinking right today
    I've got no energy
    I'm glad that you are waiting with me
    Tell me all about your day

    Breaking off is misery
    I see a wilderness for you and me
    Punctuated by philosophy
    I'm wondering how things could've been

    I'm happy for you
    You've made it hard for me
    I counted on your company
    You are staying with your friends tonight
    I'm feeling sorry for myself
    I keep taking everything to be a sign

    I'm happy for you
    But now I know this hurt is poison
    Too sharp to be bled
    I'm sitting on my empty bed
    I'm on my empty bed
    At night the fever grows it's pounding pounding

    I'd rather be in Tokyo
    I'd rather listen to Thin Lizzy-oh
    And watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
    There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo

    Scary moment, lovin' every moment
    I was high from playing shows
    We lost a singer to her clothes
    My trouble raised its ugly head
    I was revealed
    And I was home in bed
    I was a kid again

    Jesus told me, go after every coin like it was the last in the world
    And protect the wayward child
    But I'm a little lost sheep
    I need my Bo Peep
    You know I need My Shepherd here tonight

    Breaking off is misery
    I see a wilderness for you and me
    Punctuated by philosophy
    I'm wondering how things could've been

    I'd like to see you
    But really I should stay away
    And let you settle down
    I've got no claims to your crown
    I was the boss of you
    And I loved you
    You know I loved you
    It's all over now

    And I was there for you
    When you were lonely
    I was there when you were bad
    I was there when you were sad
    Now it's my time of need
    I'm thinking, do I have to plead to get you by my side?

    I'd rather be in Tokyo
    I'd rather listen to Thin Lizzy-oh
    And watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
    There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo

    I'm a Cuckoo was Belle & Sebastian's second single from Dear Catastrophe Waitress, released on Rough Trade Records in 2004. The track was produced by Trevor Horn. This version is remixed by The Avalanches. Personaly, I find this version superior to the original, do you agree?

    Performed at the Uptown Theater on June 18th, 2015. My wife and I showed up several hours early to make sure we were front and center. Excellent show! We had both wanted to see Belle & Sebastian for many years and they didn't disappoint. We had the privilege of speaking to Stuart briefly before the show and he was so friendly and down to earth.

    IM A CUCKOO - Belle & Sebastian 【HQ】

    4:20

    This is an exclusive video of Belle & Sebastian performing I'm A Cuckoo in concert in both Japanese and English at the Lowlands Festival in England in 2006... NEVER HAPPENED (haha).

    HOW IT WAS MADE:

    The original concert footage (sung entirely in English) was enhanced with widescreen HQ (from the original 4:3 format); the resulting video was synced with a newly substituted bilingual audio track. Additional cutaway shots from other concert footage were added to make the lip sync (or lack thereof) less apparent because of the new audio track having been added. The audio is a mashup of the original studio track in English, live concert audio, and a rare Japanese version of the song intended solely for distribution in Japan.

    Incidentally, the live concert performance had no horn section, although the recorded version does. Again, a little mixing magic fixed that. I then added the cutaway video shots of the horn player from another Belle & Sebastian performance.

    I tweaked the EQ and reverb of the composite track a bit to balance the different sources (the lead vocal on the Japanese version is not as distinct as on the English version -- it was mic-ed differently). I adjusted the timing and pitch of the separate audio tracks and, lastly, added English captions of the Japanese lyrics.

    As for why I went to all this trouble? As a Japanophile, I was intrigued by the lyrics I'd rather be in To-kyo... And watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku. The lively melody also won me over. After stumbling across the Japanese version I simply took it to the next level. Plus I've got waayy too much time on my hands (haha).

    Unfortunately, the one-and-only Japanese version of I'm A Cuckoo has since been removed from YouTube for reasons unknown. I'm glad I downloaded it because I can't even find an mp3 of it anywhere on the web. This may be the only copy in existence outside of Japan.

    Lyrics to I'm A Cuckoo (Japanese) :

    Ureshii yo, kimi no yume wo mita
    Panku na kakkou de
    Odori ni iku tokoro datta
    Demo kimi wa wakasugite oboetenai

    Ureshii yo, boku wa ie no soto
    Kyou wa enerugi ga denainanda,
    Genki mo, demo ureshii yo
    Kimi ga issho ni itekurete

    Sayonara wa tsurai,
    Bokura no kouya ga mieru
    Tetsugaku ni jamasareta
    Demo, moshi sou janakattara...

    Yokatta ne, jouzu kuitta ne
    Tayori ni shiteta no ni
    Konya kimi wa tomodachi to iru, sabishii yo
    Zutto shinjiteta no ni

    Yokatta ne, shitteru yo
    Kono itami wa toku sa, dare mo iyasenai
    Karabbo no beddo ni suwatteru
    Netsu ga agaru, gan gan gan gan

    Sore yori itai Tokyo
    Sore yori kikou Thin Lizzy wo
    Mitai nichiyou no Harajuku
    Okashii yo ne, boku wa kakkoo

    Aitai yo, demo sotto shite okou
    Kimi no eikou mo ii
    Boku ga kimi no bosu dattashi
    Kimi wo aishiteta, demo owari da ne

    Sabishii toki mo, kimi no soba ni ita
    Kimi ga kanashii toki mo, ijiwaru na toki mo
    Kondo wa boku no ban
    Sou kimi ni onegai suru no?

    Sore yori itai Tokyo
    Sore yori kikou Thin Lizzy wo
    Mitai nichiyou no Harajuku
    Okashii yo ne, boku wa kakkou

    I removed the vocals with a standard audio processor, then generated a lyric file and did a simple image overlay. I had to trim the song down a smidge since my video editor had a five-minute time restriction.

    Lyrics:

    Intro

    I'm glad to see you
    I had a funny dream and you were wearing funny shoes
    You were going to a dance
    You were dressed like a punk
    But you were too young to remember

    I'm glad to see you
    I'm outside the house and I'm not thinking right today
    I've got no energy
    I'm glad that you were waiting with me
    Tell me all about your day

    Breaking off is misery
    I see a wilderness for you and me
    Punctuated by philosophy
    I'm wondering how things could've been

    I'm happy for you
    You've made it hard for me, I counted on your company
    You are staying with your friends tonight
    I'm feeling sorry for myself
    I keep taking everything to be a sign

    I'm happy for you
    But now I know this hurt is poison too sharp to be bled
    I'm sitting on my empty bed
    I'm on my empty bed
    At night the fever grows it's pounding, pounding

    I'd rather be in Tokyo
    I'd rather listen to Thin Lizzy-o
    And watch the Sunday gang in Harajuku
    There's something wrong with me, I'm a cuckoo

    Instrumental Break

    Scary moment
    Lovin' every moment, I was high from playing shows
    We lost a singer to her clothes
    My trouble raised its ugly head
    I was revealed
    And I was home in bed, I was a kid again

    Jesus told me,
    Go after every coin like it was the last in the world
    And protect the wayward child

    I do the Devil's work 7 days a week
    I'll go to church, I'll make my peace
    I'm only gone, I'll be forgiven
    What's the point in fun if it's not forbidden?
    On the other hand I'm a prideful man
    I don't like not having a plan
    I'm lazy, borderline crazy
    Cuckoo, bananas, maybe, I don't give a damn


    Who needs friends
    When you've got drugs?
    Who needs meds
    When you've got love?
    I don't care, cause I've got nothing
    Left to do, I'll get through, though I'm

    Cuckoo, cuckoo
    Cuckoo, cuckoo


    Insecure, not made of iron
    I mess up for support, not self-reliant
    I'm sad as fuck and I'm feeling lonely
    I keep throwing up, I'm not feeling rosy
    I fake relief when I'm blatantly not
    All vacant, I'm on a trip
    I'm lazy, borderline crazy
    Cuckoo, bananas, maybe, I'm sick of this shit



    [Verse 3: Little Simz]
    I've been taking time to discover what's underneath
    I make the time move slower, it's a new division
    Take me to a planet my mind's never abandoned
    Sketch up what just happened, now paint that shit on a canvas
    I got too many thoughts, distorting words as I talk
    I'm a superhuman for sure, you will recognise that the force
    You feel me, Raleigh played it for me, I just couldn't let it go
    Hard as rock beneath the stone, this shit is just set in stone
    Real truth, you will find hope in these verses
    My verses is rodent killer for vermins, are you the subject?
    Space is all I know, you should know, have you not learned yet?
    Park my presence in your presence, I don't need a permit
    I don't have the time for these rappers, they better fall back
    If you're gonna talk all that talk then you better walk that
    Never thought that I would be a voice for a generation
    Yeah an entire nation, but still [?]
