FOPP

Post by Alice_Staley » Tue Mar 21, 2006 12:07 am

Hi and nice to meet you all! I'm new here! Grunge music and bands like Alice In Chains, Nirvana and Soundgarden give me the strength to go on! However, I'm 20 yrs old, I'm Italian and I'm taking a B.A. and studying English but sometimes it's very hard to translate songs as they're often written in slang or as they're full of idioms!
What about the word "FOPP"? What does it mean???? I searched a lot for its meaning but still not getting any... can anyone help me, please? Thanx! :-)
Anyway, Soundgarden rocks and always will be for me!
Lots of kisses

I think they made up the word.. from the content of the song it could mean "to dance" or "to have sex". At least thats what I get out of it.

I honestly don't remember the song that well and I can't find my tape (yeah I never had bought the cd) so I looked up the lyrics and thats what I came up with. What do you think it means?

Fopped last night and the night before
I had to fopp outside and then I went indoors
Fopped so hard I made the people warm
They stood back and gave me all the floor


I did the fopp, the fopp
they wouldn’t let me stop
Yeah I was foppin’ and rockin’
Had the house hoppin’


Foppin’, the way it makes you go, everybody was
Foppin’, everywhere you go, do all your
Shoppin’, wiggle to the floor, everybody was Foppin’


Fopp with me and I’ll fopp with you
Foppin’ is the brand new thing to do
Fopped so hard that I lost my shoe
I fopped so tough they had to make some room


Break your leg, don’t you fopp your back
Do your thing, don’t you give no slack
Shake your hips and then you turn around
Well first you fopp it up
And then you fopp it down


Fopp me right, don’t you fopp me wrong
We’ll be here foppin’ all night long
I’m too short, baby, and you’re too tall
But when we’re foppin’ that don’t mean a thing at all


Foppin’, the way it makes you go, everybody was
Foppin’, everywhere you go, do all your
Shoppin’, wiggle to the floor,, everybody was Foppin’

The Soundgarden tune is a cover of the original "Fopp" by the Ohio Players, which appeared on their album "Honey" in 1975. (The big hit off that album was "Love Rollercoaster.") The title is a combination of "finger" and "pop."
In other words, snapping your fingers.

Wow, after all these years now I know what it means :shock:
