The song in English:

Fashion is constantly changing
But as long as the world exists
The Gypsy with an old pack of cards
Will have at least one client…
Someone longing for bizarre miracles
Will knock on her door
And she will lay out in front of him
Those noble kings of hers…
What can I say? What can I say?
All humans are just like this -
They want to know, want to know
Want to know the future
What can I say? What can I say?
All humans are just like this -
They want to know, want to know
Want to know the future

Card-reading can foretell happiness
Or an unexpected blow of fate
Imprisonment and a long journey
Or everlasting faithful love…
Old cards will spread out like a fan
On a shawl decorated with fringe
And suddenly the Gypsy herself
Will believe her noble kings…
What can I say? What can I say?
All humans are just like this -
They want to know, want to know
Want to know the future
What can I say? What can I say?
All humans are just like this -
They want to know, want to know
Want to know the future.

Time destroys granite castles
And covers towns with sand
But years don’t mean anything
For those cards in the Gypsy’s hands…
The heart melts as the fortune-teller speaks
And at all the crossroads of the world
The noble kings are telling lies
With the same expression on their faces…
What can I say? What can I say?
All humans are just like this -
They want to know, want to know
Want to know the future
What can I say? What can I say?
All humans are just like this -
They want to know, want to know
Want to know the future.

Music Video with RWS deck. Anyone care to explain how the reading relates to the storyline? (Thanks to John McBride.)

This music video features the Thoth Tarot laid out on a lazy susan (good idea!) at 2:45.

Some people say there’s a lot of tarot symbolism in Lady Gaga’s music videos (see also here and here). Send me stills that clearly were intended to depict specific tarot cards, and I’ll post them. For instance, here’s The Moon card from “Poker Face”—made all the more explicit by the images juxtaposed with each other in the video. To me, it represents the femme fatale, at her most instinctive, climbing up out of the pool of the archetypal collective unconscious. A later image with just one dog could be Strength. At the end of the video we see The Sun card (sunrise after a night playing strip poker), complete with two children frolicking in front of a wall. It represents the success of the sexual seduction gambit that is spelled out in the lyrics, but also a kind of return to innocence (white clothes and gloves instead of the black).

Wow! This is Kreative Key Productions‘ powerful contribution to the Multi-dimensional New Music Initiative, the Twelve Days Project, in which they created a video to go with The Dreamscapes Project [band's name] song, “Titanic.” The video director, Kristin Pavelski, explained their use of tarot:

“The tarot cards were brought into the piece to portray this continuing repetitious behavior the characters go through. Tarot, being a divination tool, easily reflects events in one’s life, at any given time. This piece starts with The Lovers card, as both characters are introduced. The next card played is the 8 of Cups which signifies a man leaving behind success . . .”

Read more about the tarot imagery in the video and the creative project here. Name the tarot deck featured in this video.

The images are from  Joanna Powell-Colbert’s self-published Gaian Tarot Deck, and the song is written and sung her husband, Craig Olson – find out about them here.

Brief views of the RWS deck near the beginning.

I thought I had this posted, but it seems not. All the “Tarot Music Videos” now have their own category—view them all by clicking on the category above or to the left.

Here’s another Donnaleigh tarot music video discovery. The tarot reading starts just after 2:30. Can you ID the deck? Enjoy.

In this music video the cards used are Wahrsagekarten – a style of cartomancy deck found in Germany and Eastern Europe. (Thanks to Donnaleigh.)
