The post in question was my ode to F.O.K. Electrochongo written almost a year to the day! The reason was that Maegan had downloaded this Soundcloud mix by Brooklyn's DJ Amylulita which might not be a smooth segue mix but is a great compendium of all things electro and pop coming from Latin America right now (got all that?).
Track 7 is listed as "Sos Tan Facil (Radio Edit)" by Karaoke Artesanal which actually turns out to be F.O.K. Electrochongo (pictured right).
The Argentinean electro-clash queer singer, who often performs wearing just underwear, does it all in-house and sometimes it shows. But his wry lyrics and dedication to the craft comes out as freshly honest and lots of fun.
Here is his basic info:
Unattainable you are / At the disco everyone wants to get to know you / and nobody dares to tell you how difficult you are / distant-interesting / but when the night threatens to leave you without anyone in bed / that's where you lose all control and give in / you know that you are an easy pray /easyLady Gaga! Take notice! I do have to confess that, as someone born in Colombia, I crack up every time F.O.K. sings "Sos tan facil como yo" ("You are as easy as I am"). The "Yo" sounds to me as "cho" or "sho" which is typical of Argentinean accents.
[chorus] you're so easy, just like me / but I / am less easy / you're so easy, my heart / but I / am less easy / so easy, my heart / but I / am not like you, my love
It's so difficult to keep it up / always in the same role / I already saw you, I already recognized you / we all give up sometimes / sometimes / but whenever someone steps in and talks to you, you step aside behaving like a star / why? if you're so easy? / take off your mask / it's easy!
[chorus] you're so easy, just like me / but I / am less easy / you're so easy, my heart / but I / am less easy / so easy, just like me / but I / at least am looking for love / so easy, my heart / but I / am not like you, my love [repeat]
In the meantime, I leave you with the almost-US premiere of "Sos Tan Facil"...
