"There are hundreds of mails," she writes to me, "and they all say the same thing. Is it true that Tarkan's first English language song has come out? What should I tell them?"
She, like I, have known about "this song" for three days now. A DJ working on a Turkish radio station in Turkey sent me an email to the inbox managed by my friend last week, explaining that he had a good quality copy of Tarkan's first English language song.
Simply put, the single that everyone has been waiting for.
For obvious reasons I will not name the man or the radio station, as he could be out of a job for leaking the song to the Internet before any official release.
However, I replied to him in the way that I will now reply to all those mails regarding "this song" in this post.
I do not advocate the sharing of any uncredited work, or the copying of work without the express permission of the owner.
As owner of my own intelligent property, I know what it feels like to have your hard work illegally distributed.
I also don't know whether "this song" is actually Tarkan's soon to be released new single.
Like everyone else, if this is his new song I will wait for the official release and go buy the original CD at the shops or over the Net.
Of course, though I may not agree with those fans that will obviously now search the Net for a copy of the song, I will always defend their freedom to do so. For I know that most fans are not trying to steal Tarkan's work; they just want to have a taste of what they have been waiting for so long.
So now, please stop asking me about it.
Finally, I will say one thing. If this unconfirmed song is Tarkan's song, then the name of the song is very suitable for current events.
Let hate "sush" and love speak.
