Typonerds remixen Lady Gaga: Neutraface


(Youtube Direkt, via Kottke)

Ein paar Typonerds haben Lady Gagas (OMG! Ich hätte nie gedacht, dass ich hier mal Lady Gaga-Content poste… aber das hier muss sein) „Pokerface“ in eine Ode an den Font Neutraface von House Industries umgedichtet. Die Lyrics nach dem Klick und „using Adobe's not the same without a Mac“ is so, so true.

I lay it out like they do in magazines
check out this typeface it's like smoking nicotine (I love it)
using Adobe's not the same without a Mac
if it was lead it would be lined up on a track

oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got
oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got

You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)
You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)

N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah
N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah

Thought about Futura but the em space was to wide
even when condensed, no, i'll use another type
Gill sans the G is wack when it's in lower case
Avante gard you make me hard but helvetica you're played (played)

oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got
oh,oh,oh,oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
I'll mock it up, show you what I got

You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)
You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)

N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah
N-n-n-neutra face, n-n-n-neutra face
nah nah nah nah

I won't tell you that you're modern
post- or nouveau
cause I'm hype'n with my type'n
I'm not freehandin', texting, letterpressin' or skywriting
like a finger on a keyboard
break a nail before I cross you
see my references, reference this
check this font cause it's sans serif

You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)
You'll read my,
You'll read my,
You can read my Neutra Face
(Even if it's bold italic)
