      Just want to say... 'strong man'. Not 'string man'.

      Please, guys, it's so easy to take down a string man! Like that would be a challenge.

      You know what, it's funny. I had just recently found that Carl Orff hadnt been the actual CREATOR of these lyrics. Mr. Orff actually had a remake of a manuscript of songs from Gothic Europe around the 13th century, the "Carmina Burana". 'O Fortuna', the song we all know and instantly recognize, was created from this.

      I know most of you dont really care, but im just tossing this out there...

      The first poster says that Orff was a hardcore Nazi... that's interesting, since what i've learned was that he was actually quite indifferent in regards to the Nazis, and once actually said that he was part of the White Rose resistance group. Oh well...

      It's an excellent musical piece, obviously one of the classics.

      Have you heard "Gravity of Love" by Enigma? It has O Fortuna in the chorus, and it's REALLy powerful. The song is absolutely gorgeous, I suggest you listen to it :-D

      This is what this song means in english,
      O Fortuna O Fortune,
      velut luna like the moon
      statu variabilis, you are changeable,
      semper crescis ever waxing
      aut decrescis; and waning;
      vita detestabilis hateful life
      nunc obdurat first oppresses
      et tunc curat and then soothes
      ludo mentis aciem, as fancy takes it;
      egestatem, poverty
      potestatem and power
      dissolvit ut glaciem. it melts them like ice.

      Sors immanis Fate - monstrous
      et inanis, and empty,
      rota tu volubilis, you whirling wheel,
      status malus, you are malevolent,
      vana salus well-being is vain
      semper dissolubilis, and always fades to nothing,
      obumbrata shadowed
      et velata and veiled
      michi quoque niteris; you plague me too;
      nunc per ludum now through the game
      dorsum nudum I bring my bare back
      fero tui sceleris. to your villainy.

      Sors salutis Fate is against me
      et virtutis in health
      michi nunc contraria, and virtue,
      est affectus driven on
      et defectus and weighted down,
      semper in angaria. always enslaved.
      Hac in hora So at this hour
      sine mora without delay
      corde pulsum tangite; pluck the vibrating strings;
      quod per sortem since Fate
      sternit fortem, strikes down the string man,
      mecum omnes plangite! everyone weep with me!
