Good Riddance…

Hvorfor bruke tid på en liten fisk, når man fortjener en større?


An expression of pleasure on being rid of some annoyance – usually an individual.


From Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida, 1606:

THERSITES: I will see you hanged, like clotpoles, ere I come any more to your tents: I will keep where there is wit stirring and leave the faction of fools.
PATROCLUS: A good riddance.

The phrase is often extended and emphasized as to good riddance to bad rubbish, or as it was first coined good riddance of bad rubbish. Tobias Smollett used the phrase in a, none too friendly, review, in The Critical Review, 1805:

But we are sorry … to consider Mr. Pratt’s writings as ‘purely evil’ … we should really look upon this author’s departure from the world of literature as a good riddance to bad rubbish.

The American journalist and member of President Andrew Jackson’s ‘Kitchen Cabinet’, Francis Preston Blair, wrote an editorial in The Extra Globe, 1841. In this he appears to have been the first to use the version of the phrase most commonly used now:

[Following the withdrawal of members of a rival advisory group] From the bottom of our hearts we are disposed to exclaim «Good riddance to bad rubbish.»


Say Say Say…

Det begynner å bli en del av disse sangene nå -DU-… Hmmm!

«Say Say Say» is a pop song that was written and performed by Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. The track was produced by George Martin for McCartney’s fifth solo album, Pipes of Peace (1983). The song was recorded during production of McCartney’s 1982 Tug of War album, about a year before the release of «The Girl Is Mine»—the pair’s first duet from Jackson’s record-breaking album, Thriller (1982). Upon its release in October 1983, «Say Say Say» became Jackson’s seventh top ten hit inside a year. It was a number one hit in the United States, Norway, and Sweden, reached number two in the United Kingdom, and peaked within the top ten in Australia, Austria, New Zealand, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

Utrolig rart hvordan man plutselig kjenner seg helt igjen i tekster. Litt ekkelt egentlig… Men kanskje er det bare meg 🙂

Michael Jackson & Paul McCartney
Say Say Say

Say say say
What you want
But dont play games
With my affection
Take take take
What you need
But dont leave me
With no direction

All alone
I sit home by the phone
Waiting for you, baby
Through the years
How can you stand to hear
My pleading for ya dear
You know Im cryin
Oo oo oo oo oo

(now) go go go
Where you want
But dont leave me
Here forever
You you you stay away
So long girl, I see ya never

What can I do, girl
To get through to you
Cause I love ya baby
Standing here
Baptized in all my tears
Baby through the years
Ya know Im cryin
Oo oo oo oo oo

You never ever worry
And ya never shed a tear
Youre sayin that my love aint real
Just look at my fac these tears aint dryin

You you you
Can never say
That Im not the one
Who really loves you
I pray pray pray, everyday
That youll see things
Girl like I do

What can I do, girl
To get through to you
Cause I love you baby
Standing here
Baptized in all my tears
Baby through the years
Ya know Im crying
Oo oo oo oo oo

Say say say…

Forøvrig ikke helt på bærtur denne heller!
