I recently interviewed a Turkish band who introduced me to the group 'Roadside Picnic', who make fantastic, alluring left-field hip-hop. I've been hopelessly hooked on this live version of what I presume is a new song from the duo. It's titled "Bir Ustamızın Havası", and I'd love to know what the song is talking about. [more inside]
I was recently gifted a tape of underground folk music from the Soviet hippies ("sistema") of the late 1970s. I'd like some help figuring out the lyrics to this Dylanesque tune. Hive mind, can you help? (Note: I don't know a word of Russian myself.)

The Books have a song called "Free Translator" (YouTube link) in which the somewhat nonsensical lyrics started out as a "very well known folk song", but were passed through free web translators again and again until they became something completely different. Does anyone know/can anyone figure out what the original song was? It will be harder than it sounds. The answer does not appear to be on the internet yet...

It's the name of a song on Tom Waits' album Alice, in which he repeats the word over and over. I assume it's German, but I can't find any translations. If it's not an actual word, does it at least sound like something in German?
