"Rapunzel" is a German fairy tale in the collection assembled by the Brothers Grimm, and first published in 1812 as part of Children's and Household Tales .
The Grimm Brothers' story is an adaptation of the fairy tale Persinette by Charlotte-Rose de Caumont de La Force originally published in 1698. Its plot has been used and parodied in various media and its best known line ("Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair") is an idiom of popular culture.
Novak is an English band from Birmingham who debuted with a string of creative , original , surreal singles : Silver Seas (Earworm) , Alpine Assignment (Kitty Kitty) , Rapunzel (Kitty Kitty) .
"Rapunzel" was released only on Vinyl 45rpm Single .
The album " Novak " (Kitty Kitty Records , 1999) revealed a mature combo that is not afraid of experimenting with Sonic Youth's noise-rock and Mercury Rev's post-psychedelia . Adele Williams is surrounded by six musicians , with instruments ranging from droning accordion ( David Gerrard ) , to flute (Tasmin Snell) , and including two guitars (Jane Smith and Jeremy Hepburn) .
"Blue Chinook" and "By Peggy's Well" are charming songs , although underneath they are warped spaghetti of harmony . Even better , "Boy Scouts Of America" stretches into cacophonous avantgarde with intriguing force .

Isn't it marvelous
that we have been given the gift of seeing and hearing?
seeing gives us a wonderful picture of the world around us,
but I wonder how many of you
think about hearing as giving us wonderful soundpictures...
For, sounds are really tone colours
that give us a picture of what we hear.
We have all enjoyed show-and-tell at school.
But, how many of you have
played the exciting game of hear-and-tell ?
We will now hear sounds.
Can you tell us what they are?
And, who or what, is making them?
First, close your eyes,
and when you hear each sound,
try to guess what it is...
Either say what it is, or, if you are alone,
just think about it...
Island breezes, and your travel-shop teases,
And all you want is a raise, yeah,
For all of the sunshine,
Better make you be mine,
Forever and no more,
All you do is play guitar and the melody for me,
You're .. My .. Life.
And you don't even boast of your extra-fine life
or your flash ship upholstery,
All I can recollect - 'You better wear your best white dress'
Your .. Whole .. Life ..
