Funny Paper said
Thanks to all the responders to my question about "einmal so".  I think however that some phrases are colloquial and are not literally translatable.  My suspicion is that "einmal so" means something like "that's the way it is".  It comes as the climax to the emphatic line which I tentatively translate as --

"In your arms I feel happy and gay,

With another that would never ever be this way (the way that it is)."

-- but I could be horribly wrong.

''In your arms I feel happy and gay

With anyone else it hasn't been that way (yet)'' (the yet is supposed to be there but I put it between brackets, because otherwise it wouldn't rhymeahdn_ringo_09 )

 

Properly translated it's probably: ''It hasn't been that way/like that with anyone else yet''

Thanks Linde, that makes more sense.  I think you could even make the "yet" a "once" -- as in "not once" = "never".  Also you could put the "yet" or "once" earlier in the sentence and still keep the "way" at the end.

''In your arms I feel happy and gay

With anyone else it hasn't yet been that way''

Or even:

With anyone else it hasn't ever been that way''

Yay! I'm back to only having one Egroeg Evoli currently online! Five would be too hard to handle!

They're all imposters! Look at the spelling of the name:

Strange. According to the Currently Online bit at the bottom of the page, it seems members currently online are:
Evoli, Egroege Evoli, Egroege Evoli, Egroege Evoli, Egroege Evoli, mja6758, LongHairedLady!

Oops! Seems I goofed with my spelling there. I always have to think hard with Egroeg's name.

Haha, I just assumed it was a result of the same bug that generated five of them in the first place!

Definitely not! I like your name. The spelling doesn't come easy in my head though, and I have to think about it when I'm using it, because I'm thinking it's George backwards and working it out as I go along. Really ought to add it to spellchecker and then I'd know when I got it wrong.

This conversation has made me curious about something: How do you pronounce my name?

Eg-roeg E-voli, or Evo-li. Not that I have ever needed to pronounce it.

This statement is false.

Highly respected British jazz musician Kenny Ball has passed away at the age of 82. Though his main success was in the UK, where he charted 14 Top 50 hits (the most by any jazz artist), he was a highly regarded Dixieland trumpeter the world over. He and his Jazzmen were also one of the few British acts to enjoy American chart success pre-Beatles, reaching No. 2 in the Billboard chart in March 1962 with Midnight in Moscow. The following year he became the first British jazz musician to be made an honorary citizen of New Orleans. He worked until the end, his last performance being in Manchester just fifteen days ago, fittingly with two of the other giants of British jazz, Acker Bilk and Chris Barber. He will be sadly missed.

That's was. I think we do have a croakers thread, but this is no time to be sad. Cheer up, mja! Death is the greatest part of one'livers, and 82 is.A nice age.

I really don't know what to say to this. "That's was." What does that mean? Nowhere in my post do I say "is". "I think we do have a croakers thread," yes, and I think if you look back through this thread, disrespectful as I think your "croakers" is, this is the "croakers" thread. Occasionally someone will get their own thread, but here is where deaths are generally mentioned. To feel sorrow at someone's death, and to commemorate it, is no bad thing. What gives you the idea I need to "cheer up"? Was there anything in my marking the death of an important musician that hinted I was feeling over-emotional about it? I noted his passing, commented on his achievements, and said he would be missed, that's all. Whatever your beliefs, it is good to mark the transition from one phase to another, and there is nothing wrong in expressing a measure of sadness at that.

Was this outburst really necessary? It's pretty obvious he was just trying to be nice.

I wanted to point out that this was the thread where deaths are mentioned, and that I found the term "croakers" a disrespectful way to refer to those who have died. Perhaps I should have kept my response less detailed and not gone into why I posted my comments on the passing of Kenny Ball, and my thoughts on commemorating death, but I didn't really see it as an "outburst", just a response. I apologise if it reads as an "outburst".

Damn, and just one day after the deaths of Alvin Lee and Canadian legend Stompin' Tom Connors.

Big R.I.P.s all around :(

That's was was supposed to be that's sad. I should turn the spellcheck off on my iPod because they never make any sense anyhow. I have only heard croak be used in a neutral type of way. Didn't know some people take offense at that word. I don't mind that people post deaths here, I was just saying that there is a thread for announcing deaths, if you found that more convenient or whatever to use it (though it doesn't make a difference to me if you do or not, and I can see how you would take that the wrong way). I felt like your post read very upsetingly, if you don't need to cheer up then don't.

I understand someone having special feelings for the passing of someone special (talking about people who are not friends or family).  For some reason, I feel more about some celebrities than I do about others.  The deaths of Jack Lemmon and Johnny Carson were particularly sentimental for me.  On another note, after I began to read him more and appreciate him more deeply, simply learning -- some 35 years after it happened (1960) -- about the tragic motor vehicle accident that killed the French philosopher Albert Camus, filled me with sadness, since it cut down a great thinker in his prime who could, should have lived another 30 or 40 years into a ripe old age.

And of course a forum like this has such a tragedy ever lurking in the shadows of its heart.

Thanks for your response, and for not taking offense at my comments (at least yours doesn't read as if you did, and I apologise if you did). Damn spellchecker! Croak isn't really offensive, but it's slang that I personally find disrespectful. As to the thread you mention for announcing deaths, are you referring to Rest in Peace? The intention of that thread seems to be to mark the passing of those (person or pet) who you are close to, and want to express your feelings about. The last time I looked at it, it had only been used by Joe to talk about the death of a friend of his, and those commiserating with Joe over his loss. The marking of deaths that occur in this thread tend more to be those of celebrities. Thanks for the spirit of your thoughts.

I've always hated talking about death.

My grandma has skincancer (she's had it for years, but now the future's not looking too bright) and everytime we're at her house someone starts about how she has to make a testament and all this constant talking about which friend/family member/faint acquaintance has passed away this time. It always makes me very uncomfortable.

 

Also, yaay we've had two days of spring and now Sunday it's going to snow again, like, are you kidding me?
