Pourquoi “Happy Squid” ?

6 avril 2016 — by Julie0

A l’achat du bateau, changer de «nom», a sonné comme une évidence. Une façon pour nous d’instaurer une relation de confiance avec notre monture. Alors on a cherché… On vous épargne toutes les idées qui nous ont traversé la tête. Et puis c’est à l’unisson qu’”Happy Squid” est tombé! Tiré d’une chanson de Devendra Benhart (Little Yellow Spider), “Happy Squid” (calamar joyeux) est à l’image du reste du projet. Un nom qui nous colle à la peau, un état d’esprit, un style quoi. Le personnage de nos histoires. Il est tout d’abord né sous la forme d’un objet qui avait pour fonction de faire sécher nos sous-vêtements. Et aujourd’hui il prend la mer…

Little Yellow Spider, Devendra Benhart :

 One, two, three, four

Little yellow spider, laughing at the snow
Ah, maybe that spider knows something that I don’t know
‘Cause I’m goddamn cold

Little white monkey, staring at the sand
Well, maybe that monkey figured out something I couldn’t understand
Who knows?

Well, I came upon a dancing crab, and I stopped to watch it shake
I said, "Dance for me just one more time
Before you hibernate and you come out a crab cake"

Hey there, little snapping turtle, snapping at a shell
Ah, there’s mysteries inside, I know
But what they are I just can’t tell for sure

And hey ya, little baby crow, you’re looking kinda mean
I think I outta spit before you start letting off your steam
For sure

And hey there, little sexy pig, you made it with a man
And you’re got a little kid with hooves instead of hands

And oh, all the animals
All the animals

And hey there, little mockingbird, they sing about you in songs
Ah, where you been? Have you broke a wing?
I haven’t heard you in so long

And hey there, little albatross, swimming in the air
Ah c’mon, you know I can’t fly
And I, I think we really outta play fair

And hey there, Mr. happy squid, you move so psychadelically
You hypnotize with your magic dance all the animals in the sea
For sure

And oh, all the animals
All the animals

And hey there, Mr. morning sun, what kind of creature are you?
I can’t stare, but I know you’re there
Goddamn, how I wish I knew

And hey there, Mrs. lovely moon, you’re lonely and you’re blue
It’s kinda strange, the way you change
But then again, we all do too
