### A woman's pro-Europe anti-Islam song

Olivie has released an English edition of the song on Sunday evening.

We had a friendly e-mail exchange and I tried to convince her to work with native speakers and make it more comprehensible to them etc. It seems to me that this recommendation was largely ignored. But you got what you got.
Ms Olivie Žižková (*1975) has only been known to the wider Czech public as the nude babe from a bizarre calendar that she created along with Mr Jiří Krytinář, a Czech dwarf actor [skeletal dysplasia] who died half a year ago [problem with lungs, 1947-2015].

But she has just written, recorded, and released this catchy song, "Europe, just breathe", that shows that she has some nontrivial talents that go beyond nudity. Don't get me wrong: many aspects of the song suffer from the same diseases as the "regular people's products" you may be receiving into your mailbox. The political content may be more passionate than the professional musicians' songs, the words are somewhat simple, and so is the music. I would surely modify the melody at several places for it to be less monotonous.

However, her intonation safely beats those of the average amateurs (she isn't tone-deaf, at least relatively to the average person) and even the marginally on-the-edge lyrics is rather polished if you look at it from the right perspective. It rhymes well – although the verses are somewhat infantile and the stresses aren't always right. But it's surely not bad for a piece of naked meat! ;-) It's pretty good even for an ambitious wannabe musician.

And I think it's just terrific we have at least women who are full of energy and who consider the European values and lifestyle worth defending. And I don't mind that she uses the trouble with migration for self-promotion – she deserves it.

Let me just give you some idea about the lyrics. It's next to impossible for me to translate "ordinary human affairs" into English – the opposite translation is just fine with me. But it could be enough for you to have some idea.

Europe, just breathe

My dreams make me feel anxious
...that a šit-through [=trouble] is approaching us.
When I turn on the news
... and believe me, my feelings are not from weed.
Those news make me depressed, perhaps skinheads would be better
...and colorful mohawks instead of black garbs.

How did it happen
...that so many have made it through?
In the faraway beautiful Paris
...one can see crosses.
Let's reverse the trend,
...the wildlife has to be returned back.
Thanks to Merkel
...she has already shown her [tricks].

Europe just breathe
...and look into the future.
Don't allow to be beaten
...democracy to be reversed.
After all, we have the strength
...and everyone has the faith.
We simply can't just smile
...and peacefully fall asleep.

Europe, defend yourself,
...don't allow to be shot at.
Their mission is to
...make a bloody trip.
We no longer want to be
...mere sheep,
want to be slaughtered,
...to voluntarily go.

Brussels, Nice, Munich,
...a full cemetery of souls.
It's getting closer to us,
...a sad God is overseeing it.
Blather of Brussels
...has nothing to do with the issue.
They will sacrifice us
...what matters is to steal enough for themselves.

There's no time to wait
...why should still be scared of them?
Islamic burqas,
The invasion is getting stronger,
...we must accumulate the strength.
We will have to stand up
...and roughly wrestle.

Europe just breathe
...and look into the future.
Don't allow to be beaten
...democracy to be reversed.
After all, we have the strength
...and everyone has the faith.
We simply can't just smile
...and peacefully fall asleep.

Europe, defend yourself,
...don't allow to be shot at.
Their mission is to
...make a bloody trip.
We no longer want to be
...mere sheep,
want to be slaughtered,
...to voluntarily go.

Mosques
Quran
Allah
Sharia Law

They give us the shivers.

Please not those things, no, no.

Europe defend yourself,
...become a proud and tough one.
Don't allow to be beaten
...democracy to be reversed.
After all, we have the strength
...and everyone has the faith.
We simply can't just smile
...and peacefully fall asleep.

Europe, defend yourself,
...don't allow to be shot at.
Their mission is to
...make a bloody trip.
We no longer want to be
...mere sheep,
want to be slaughtered,
...to voluntarily go.

Europe, just breathe!
Look!
To beat.
To reverse.
Strength.
Faith.

We simply can't just smile
...and peacefully fall asleep.
Europe, just breathe.
...Yeah, huh-aha, lalalah.

This is not a full-fledged high-quality blog post. I won't proofread it.

P.S. I was totally unaware of this lady (who's been a porn star, I read somewhere). But she's been also imitating Slovak pop star Dara Rollins, e.g. here, and I think that her remakes are just totally wonderful, musically and otherwise. The people who express doubts that her singing puts her into the musically top 0.1% of the population either 1) understand nothing about music or are tone-deaf, or 2) are prejudiced or jealous, or 3) both.

P.S. 2: After I exchanged some kind e-mails with her and made a search on YouTube and my mailbox, I must correct myself. In 2011 when I was a jury member at the Academic Film Olomouc, and among other films, I actually watched – and rated – a movie, Cinematherapy, in which Olivie Žižková appeared. My notes written while watching it say that "the hot girl, immitator of Rollins, looks like Renáta Brejchová and sings well, end". ;-) I mostly forgot about her in those 5+ years...
