Everything seems to be falling in place. It´s clearly "easy street":

If you are easily offended, you might not want to watch it.

I know you don´t understand the lyrics but otherwise, what do you think of this song?

https://youtu.be/IWHxsqOl_v0

Some people walk in ragged shoes, pray tell why is that?
God our Father who lives in Heaven might want it that way,

God our Father who lives in Heaven rests peacefully asleep,
Who cares about a pair of ragged shoes when one is old and tired?

Who cares how the days go? They wander as they please,
Citizen, in a hundred years you'll be no more,

By then someone else has taken your place, but of that you won't be aware,
You feel neither rain nor sun down in your murky grave,

Who cares how the nights go? I don't care at all,
As long as I can keep my face hidden within my lover's hair,

I am a questionable character, not good for much,
'Round a corner Death stalks, he'll take me when he pleases,

Some people walk in ragged shoes, until they stop walking,
The Devil who lives in Hell has himself a good laugh then."

Interestingly, a Swedish song is going for a Latin Ameican sound.

Different language, of course, but still in the general area. Listening to a song in Swedish reminds me of this beautiful lullaby sung in Northern Sámi.

Speaking of Swedish, I just remembered this religious number sung in English and Swedish.

I guess it's hard to compete with songs in Swedish and Northern Sámi.

It's not the song per se. I love this tribute to the co-protagonists of Figure 17, Tsubasa, and Hikaru.

A song that has been on my mind today is "Lilium" from the anime series Elfen Lied.

I think I'd like "Go Rest High on That Mountain" by Vince Gill... lyrics don't match my life, but I like the song
