Téléphone - Un autre monde - 1984

Album : Un autre monde

Artist Biography by Jason Ankeny (Allmusic)

Telephone fused the swagger and energy of hard rock with the urban aggression of punk to emerge as the most admired and influential French band of the post-student revolt era. Their roots lie in Sémolina, an unheralded trio formed in late 1975 by singer/guitarist Jean-Louis Aubert, bassist Daniel Roux, and drummer Richard Kolinka. When their lone WEA single, "Et J'y Vais Déjà," vanished upon its mid-1976 release, Sémolina quickly split; Aubert and Kolinka remained roommates, however, frequently jamming in the cellar of their Paris home.

In late autumn of 1976, Kolinka secured a gig at Paris' American Centre, but when his regular band was unable to commit to the date, he and Aubert recruited Louis Bertignac, a gifted guitarist previously known for supporting singer Jacques Higelin, and bassist Corine Marienneau to assemble a set list comprised of classic rock hits and Aubert's first original compositions. On November 12, Telephone made their debut performance, playing a largely improvised set to a few hundred patrons; loud, snotty, and defiantly primitive, the band effectively reinvigorated French rock in one fell swoop. Though by no means the classic frontman, Aubert nevertheless transcended his limits as a vocalist and guitarist with sheer aggressive energy, becoming the poster boy for a new generation of French rock icons, while Bertignac's raw, electrifying guitar solos evoked antecedents from Keith Richards to Jimmy Page.

After a famously raucous March 1977 appearance at the Paris Metro, Telephone toured in support of British act Eddie & the Hot Rods, followed by a date opening for the seminal American band Television. A June 8th performance at Paris' Bus Palladium yielded Telephone's debut single, "Hygiaphone." Six weeks later, the quartet signed to Pathé-Marconi, teaming with producer Mike Thorne for its self-titled debut LP, issued in November. Telephone supported the album's release with their first headlining tour, culminating in a free show at Paris' Pantin racecourse. With their 1979 sophomore effort, Crache Ton Venin, Telephone rocketed to superstardom -- the single "La Bombe Humaine" emerged as a generational anthem, and the album sold in excess of 600,000 copies, capped off by a performance at the annual Fête de l'Humanité in front of an audience of more than 100,000 people. Tours of Italy, Spain, and North America followed, and while in New York, Telephone began work on their third album, 1981's Au Coeur de la Nuit, which generated the smash single "Argent Trop Cher." The quartet returned home in time for the premiere of Telephone Public, a documentary feature directed by Jean-Marie Périer, previously known as the longtime photographer for the pop magazine Salut les Copaines.

With their contractual obligations to Pathé complete, Telephone leveraged their enormous popularity to negotiate a lucrative new deal with Virgin. Highlighted by the single "Ce Soir Est Ce Soir," their fourth album, Dure Limite, hit stores in conjunction with their June 14, 1982, Paris concert in support of the Rolling Stones. During the headlining tour that followed, Bertignac broke his collarbone in a fall, but Telephone still played the majority of dates, culminating in a sold-out three-night stand at the Paris Hippodrome. But creative dissension began to grow, and breakup rumors reached a fever pitch in the wake of 1984's Un Autre Monde, as all four members of Telephone began to pursue solo projects; while Aubert contributed to an Ethiopian benefit LP recorded by the all-star Chanteurs sans Frontiéres, Marienneau wrote music for the Luc Besson film Subway, and Kolinka founded his own label, Kod.

Finally, in April 1986 Aubert announced the band's demise -- a subsequent live LP proved a bestseller around the same time he and Kolinka reunited with Sémolina bassist Daniel Roux under the name Aubert 'n' Ko, releasing the funk-inspired album Platre et Ciment in 1987, while Bertignac and Marienneau formed Les Visiteurs. With Kolinka still in tow, Aubert began his solo career in earnest with 1989's Bleu Blanc Vert, while Bertignac launched his post-Visiteurs career with 1993's Tony Visconti-produced Elle et Louis. Only Marienneau left the music business, focusing instead on theater.



Je rêvais d'un autre monde
Où la terre serait ronde
Où la lune serait blonde
Et la vie serait féconde

Je dormais à poings fermés
Je ne voyais plus en pieds
Je rêvais réalité
Ma réalité

Je rêvais d'une autre terre
Qui resterait un mystère
Une terre moins terre à terre
Oui je voulais tout foutre en l'air

Je marchais les yeux fermés
Je ne voyais plus mais pieds
Je rêvais réalité
Ma réalité m'a alité

Oui je rêvais de notre monde
Et la terre est bien ronde
Et la lune est si blonde
Ce soir dansent les ombres du monde

A la rêver immobile
Elle m'a trouvé bien futile
Mais quand bouger l'a fait tourner
Ma réalité m'a pardonné


I was dreaming of another world
Where the earth would be round
Where the moon would be blond
And life would be fertile

I was in a deep sleep
I did not see straight anymore
I dreamed reality
My reality

I was dreaming of another earth
That would remain a mystery
An earth less down to earth
Yes I wanted to screw it all

I was walking with my eyes closed
I could no longer see my feet
I dreamed reality
My reality pinned me to my bed

I was dreaming of our world
And the earth is round alright
And the moon is so blond
Tonight the shadows of the world are dancing

For having been dreaming it motionless
It found me quite futile
But when budging made it turn
My reality forgave me.
(the shadows of the world are dancing)

Les Forbans - Chante - 1982

Les Forbans is a popular rock 'n' roll French group in the 1980s, notably with the song Chante, adaptation of the song Shout Shout (Knock Yourself Out) Ernie Maresca.

Chante, chante, danse et mets tes baskets
Chouette c'est sympa tu verras
Viens surtout n'oublie pas
Vas-y ramène-toi et tout le monde chez moi

Ce soir c'est la boum dans le living-room
Les parents sont partis faut que tu téléphones
Wouap dou bap ....
Et surtout fait bien gaffe de n'oublier personne

Chante, chante, danse et mets tes baskets
Chouette c'est sympa tu verras
Viens surtout n'oublie pas
Vas-y ramène-toi et tout le monde chez moi

Je voudrais vous voir danser tous comme des fous
Que la musique réveille tout ce qui est en nous
Sylvie, Patricia et Barbara,
J'aimerais que ce soir vous soyez tous là

Chante, chante, danse et mets tes baskets
Chouette c'est sympa tu verras
Viens surtout n'oublie pas

Vas-y ramène-toi et tout le monde chez moi

Y aura pas d'excuse valable,
Tous les absents seront coupables
Vous connaissez la route qui mène chez moi
Surtout n'oubliez pas, non n'oubliez pas.

Chante, chante, danse et mets tes baskets
Chouette c'est sympa tu verras
Viens surtout n'oublie pas
Vas-y ramène-toi et tout le monde chez moi

Nous ferons ce soir tout ce qui nous plaît
Peut-être boirons-nous autre chose que du lait
Marions-nous ce soir jusqu'au lendemain
Venez faut qu'on se marre jusqu'au petit matin.

Chante, chante, danse et mets tes baskets
Chouette c'est sympa tu verras
Viens surtout n'oublie pas
Vas-y ramène-toi et tout le monde chez moi
(x3)



Sing on, sing on, dance on and put your sneakers on
Nice, it's cool you'll see
Come on, and don't you forget about it
Come on here man, everybody comes to my place

This evening there's a party in the living room
The parents are away, you got to make some calls
Wap doo wap ...
And be sure you don't forget anyone

Sing on, sing on, dance on and put your sneakers on
Nice, it's cool you'll see
Come on, and don't you forget about it
Come on here man, everybody comes to my place

I'd like to see you all dance like crazy
Let music wake up everything within us
Sylvie, Patricia and Barbara,
I'd like you all to be there tonight

Sing on, sing on, dance on and put your sneakers on
Nice, it's cool you'll see
Come on, and don't you forget about it
Come on here man, everybody comes to my place

No excuses will be accepted
All absentees will be deemed guilty
You know the road to my place
Be sure not to foget, don't forget

Sing on, sing on, dance on and put your sneakers on
Nice, it's cool you'll see
Come on, and don't you forget about it
Come on here man, everybody comes to my place

Tonight we'll do whatever we want
Maybe we'll drink something else than milk
Let's get married tonight till the next morning
Come on, we have to have fun till dawn

Sing on, sing on, dance on and put your sneakers on
Nice, it's cool you'll see
Come on, and don't you forget about it
Come on here man, everybody comes to my place (x3)


That was in 1982. Now the party's over and the hangover is something fierce...

Axelle Red - Sensualité - 1993

Album : Sans plus attendre

Artist Biography by Evan C. Gutierrez (Allmusic)

European pop diva Axelle Red was born Fabienne Demal on February 15, 1968. Demal grew up bilingual, speaking both French and Dutch from her earliest years. A fan of American pop and R&B, she developed a strong interest in singing as a child, beginning to perform in her early teen years. Demal was discovered by a talent scout at age 15, and was invited to record a single, entitled "Little Girls." The song became a national hit, turning Axelle Red into an instant star. Though she studied law and drama for a time, by 1988 she had turned her full attention to her musical career, having signed with the powerful multinational BMG. The song "Kennedy Boulevard," written by Axelle and her musically gifted brothers, became the singer's first gold record, followed shortly thereafter by "Aretha et Moi." In 1992 Axelle Red switched over to Virgin, with whom she produced her first full-length record, Sans Plus Attendre. Thanks to a string of radio hits, the R&B-inflected record would sell 500,000 copies, becoming Belgium's best-selling record of all time. Thanks to several important live appearances and a successful follow-up record, A Tatons, Axelle Red quickly rose to international stardom. Face A/Face B (2002) and French Soul (2004) paid homage to her longtime love affair with American soul and disco music, offering up opportunities to work with some of those genres' most prevalent names. Projects like her fifth studio record, Jardin Secret, found Axelle as engaged with political causes as musical pursuits. As a representative for UNICEF and an advocate of tolerance, in recent years the singer has wielded her considerable star power in support of humanitarian causes worldwide.


Jamais je n'aurais pensé...
"Tant besoin de lui"
Je me sens si envoutée
Que ma maman me dit : ralentis
Désir ou amour
Tu le sauras un jour

J'aime j'aime
Tes yeux, j'aime ton odeur
Tous les gestes en douceur
Lentement dirigés
Sensualité
Oh stop un instant
J'aimerais que ce moment
Fixe pour des tas d'années
Ta sensualité

Il paraît qu'après quelques temps
La passion s'affaiblie
Pas toujours apparemment
Et maman m'avait dit : ralentis
Désir et amour
Tu le sauras un jour

J'aime j'aime

Je te demande simplement
Ne fais pas semblant
Je t'aimerais encore
Et encore

Désir ou amour



I never would have thought...
"I need him so much"
I feel so bewitched
That my mother told me: slow down
Lust or love
You will find out one day

I love I love
Your eyes, I love your smell
All your smooth gestures
Executed slowly
With sensuality
Oh stop for an instant
I wish this moment
Would immobilize for many years
Your sensuality

It would seem that after some time
The passion winds down
Not always, apparently
And my mother had told me: slow down
Lust or love
You will find out one day

I love I love

I simply ask you
Not to pretend
I would love you again
And again

Lust or love

Modjo - Lady (Hear me tonight) - 2000


Artist Biography by Andy Kellman (Allmusic)

Yann Destagnol and Romain Tranchart make up Modjo, a France-based downtempo production team. Tranchart's roots are in rock, but he was eventually converted to house after a stint as a guitarist. By the end of 1998, he already had his first production released ("What You're Gonna Do Baby"), under the name Funk Legacy. Destagnol was a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter at a young age and shifted to R&B after having spent his formative years devouring pop and rock. The two joined in 1998 and released their first single, "Lady (Hear Me Tonight)," on Sound of Barclay in 2001. By the end of that year, they had their self-titled debut full-length released by MCA.
Lady, hear me tonight,
Cos my feeling is just so right.
As we dance,
By the moonlight.
Can't you see, you're my delight
Lady, I just feel like
I won't get you outta my mind
I feel love for the first time
And I know that it's true I can tell by the look in your eyes

Jean Cras - Journal de Bord - 1927 - Partie III : Quart de 4 à 8 - Classical

Artist Biography by Robert Cummings (Allmusic)

Jean Cras was a gifted composer largely known for his chamber works and opera Polyphème (1912-1918). He might well have achieved greater fame had he not maintained a highly successful lifelong career in the French navy. Indeed, Cras reached the rank of rear-admiral and was decorated several times in World War I, achieving particular distinction for his valor in the Adriatic campaign. Musically, he typically garnered far less notice. For one thing, his education was modest, though ultimately adequate: he received no formal advanced training in composition, though he studied privately with Henri Duparc, who would become a lifelong friend and mentor. Cras remained a relatively obscure figure on the musical scene in France except for the final decade or so of his life. Stylistically, Cras was an Impressionist, but a freewheeling one, investing his music with occasional exotic influences inspired by his naval travels, and with Celtic and sacred elements. His later works divulged a more caustic expressive language, but without ever reaching much beyond the style of Bartók. Cras was versatile, turning out works in most genres, including opera, orchestral, chamber, choral, and song.

Jean Cras was born into a musical family in Brest, France, on May 22, 1879. His father was a brilliant naval surgeon whose example led young Jean in 1896 to enroll at the naval academy. In 1900 he relocated to Paris where he studied for three months with his newfound friend Henri Duparc.

Prior to World War I Cras was productive particularly in the realms of chamber, choral, and solo piano music. In 1921 Polyphème, not yet officially premiered, received first prize in the Concours musical de la Ville de Paris. It was premiered the following year by the Opéra-Comique in Paris with great success, and thereafter Cras was a much-in-demand composer in France. Cras now began turning more often to larger forms, as with the 1927 orchestral suite Journal de bord and the stage work Trois Noëls (1929), for vocal soloists, actors, chorus, piano, and orchestra. Cras' brilliant pianist daughter, Collette (wife of Polish émigré composer Alexandre Tansman), premiered Cras' 1931 Piano Concerto with great success. After his death in 1932 Cras was widely eulogized in France as one of the leading figures in French music. But his fame quickly evaporated and he was largely forgotten until the last decade or so of the 20th century.
Musicweb international
Journal de Bord (Ship's Log) is in three movements representing the three watches on board ship: I Quart de 8 à minuit; II Quart de minuit à 4; III Quart de 4 à 8. It was written on board 'La Provence' This is a very fine work struck from an imagination (all his own) but cut from the same character-cloth as Uuno Klami's Sea-Pictures (Klami, Finnish though he was, is, in many of his works, amongst the most Gallic-spirited of composers - try also his piano concertos), Bax's Tintagel and Aubert's staggeringly original sea-picture Le Tombeau de Chateaubriand.

Cras's is a bronzen foundry of the waves - at some junctures paralleling La Mer. In the middle movement the moon seems to dance subtly on the waves. The last movement is breezy and up-beat. All in all, a rich effluorescent tapestry like Bax's Spring Fire blended with Dukas's La Péri (in itself an uncannily Baxian piece).

René-Louis Lafforgue - Le poseur de rails - 1956

Wikipédia :
René-Louis Lafforgue, is an author, composer and French singer of Spanish origin and libertarian inspiration, born March 13, 1928 in San Sebastian (Spain), died accidentally June 3, 1967 in Albi (Tarn). He was also an actor in film, theater and television.
Re-hop, re-hop
(Re-hop, re-hop)

Je suis un poseur de rails
Comme l'était mon père
Je me suis mis au travail
Quand la mort lui dit "Vieux frère"
(Re-hop, re-hop)

J'ai hérité du chemin
Que mon bonhomme de père
Avait suivi comme un chien
Jusqu'à son heure dernière
(Re-hop, re-hop)

Au boulot vaille que vaille
On creuse, on pioche et l'on taille
Par les champs et la rocaille
L'immense route du rail
(Re-hop, re-hop)

On construit un éventail
Qui par Rome ou par Nanterre
Grandit comme la semaille
Sur tous les coins de la Terre
(Re-hop, re-hop)

Dès que paraît le matin
Les sirènes nous rappellent
On oublie le mal de reins
On n'est pas des demoiselles
(Re-hop, re-hop)

Chaque jour maille après maille
Grandit le chaînon du rail
Attachés à la ferraille
En chœur tout le monde braille
(Re-hop, re-hop)

Je vais le long du chemin
La musette en bandoulière
Je repars toujours plus loin
Jusqu'à mon heure dernière
(Re-hop, re-hop)

Quand trop vieux pour le turbin
Je ne pourrai plus rien faire
En voyant passer les trains
J' viderai quand même quelques verres
(Re-hop, re-hop) {ad lib}



Re-hop, re-hop
(Re-hop, re-hop)

A railer I am
like my father was.
I set to work
when the Reaper greeted him1
(Re-hop, re-hop)

I inherited the path
my artless father
had followed like a dog
until his last breath
(Re-hop, re-hop)

At work whatever the hardships
we plow with shovels and pickaxes
through fields and rocks
the endless road of the rail
(Re-hop, re-hop)

We build a web2
that through Rome or Nanterre3
grows like seeds
on the four corners of Earth
(Re-hop, re-hop)

As soon as the day breaks
the sirens call us back
We forget about our sore back
for we are no sissies
(Re-hop, re-hop)

Every day, one link at a time,
grows the chain of rail
Strapped to the cables4
we bellow in unison
(Re-hop, re-hop)

I walk along the road
with my bag over my shoulder
I'll go forth ever further
until my last breath
(Re-hop, re-hop)

When I'll become too old
to do anything,
I'll still empty a few glasses
as I'll watch the trains go by
(Re-hop, re-hop)...


1. lit. "when the Reaper said to him 'hi old chap'"
2. French uses "éventail" (fan) but I'm not sure that would make sense in English
3. a town near Paris
4. "ferraille" evokes big metalic contraptions, but I'm no expert in rail laying

Bob Sinclar - Rock this party (Everybody dance now) - 2006

Album : Western Dream

Artist Biography by John Bush (Allmusic)

The man behind such productions as the Mighty Bop (downtempo hip-hop), Bob Sinclar (house), and Réminiscence Quartet (acid jazz) is Chris the French Kiss (aka Christophe le Friant), a Parisian DJ and head of the crucial French label Yellow Productions as well as a producer. Le Friant began DJing in 1987 while still a teenager, and formed Yellow Productions in 1993 with Alain Ho. Several of the first releases on Yellow were by Le Friant: the Mighty Bop's "Messe Pour le Temps Present," Réminiscence Quartet's "Roda Mundo," and his first LP, the French hip-hop summit The Mighty Bop Meet DJ Cam et la Funk Mob. Alongside releases from a parade of excellent French sources, including DJ companions Dimitri from Paris and Kid Loco, Yellow also hosted two more Mighty Bop LPs during 1996-1997, La Vague Sensorielles and Autres Voix, Autres Blues.

Eager to inject some fun into the burgeoning French house underground, Le Friant borrowed the name Bob Sinclar (from a character in the well-known French film Le Magnifique) and in 1997 produced his first Sinclar EP, A Space Funk Project. Soon enough, he had an entire Bob Sinclar LP ready to go, and Paradise appeared on Yellow just in time for summer 1998. One of the album's tracks, "Gym Tonic," began getting some club play in France thanks to its bouncy house vibe and incessant singalong chorus (lifted from a Jane Fonda workout record). A huge anthem during the summer season in Ibiza, "Gym Tonic" looked ready to explode on the charts until Fonda sought legal action for the illegal sample. Perhaps wary of overly burdensome commercial success, the song's co-producer -- Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter, who'd just recorded his own breezy house delight, Stardust's "Music Sounds Better with You" -- refused to have even a remixed version released as a single. Nevertheless, assorted bootlegs cropped up and by October a mysterious artist named Spacedust -- probably just a major-label-fronted cash-in attempt -- hit the top of the charts in Britain with an almost identical remix of the Sinclar-Bangalter original, entitled "Gym and Tonic." (Another crass Spacedust move, covering Bangalter's solo hit with the slimly disguised title "Music Feels Good with You," dropped like a rock.)

Spin My Hits
With all the offending samples removed, Sinclar's Paradise LP was re-released worldwide in 1999. He also worked on remixes, providing tracks by Bangalter himself, Ian Pooley, Second Crusade, and the Yellow project Tom & Joyce with additional production. Le Friant returned to the Mighty Bop alias in 2000 with the retrospective mix collection Spin My Hits. In 2000, he issued his first U.S. album release as Sinclar, Champs Elysées, on Subliminal Records. The 2001 release Cerrone by Bob Sinclar found him mixing his personal favorites from the back catalog of one of his big influences, Cerrone. After climbing the dance charts in 2005 with the single "Love Generation," he released the full-length Western Dream in 2006. The following year Sinclar put out a mix-tape style CD, Soundz of Freedom, which featured remixes by the likes of Tocadisco and Axwell, alongside a clutch of new songs from the French DJ. His 2009 album Born in ’69 stepped away from his earlier disco-inspired beginnings and toward a more dancehall crossover sound which included collaborations with Shabba Ranks and Kevin Lyttle. He moved further into dub and reggae-influenced sounds in 2010 when he teamed up with legendary producers Sly & Robbie on his seventh release Made in Jamaica. The LP included reggae interpretations of some of his biggest hits, such as “Wold Hold On” and “Love Generation.” Two years later Disco Crash came, and signalled a return to his club roots. Here he revisited the big beats and synth lines that powered his rise to fame and assembled a host of artists, including Sean Paul, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Pitbull, to complete his ninth album.

"Rock This Party (Everybody Dance Now)" is a song by French producer Bob Sinclar, co-produced by regular partner Cutee B and featuring Dollarman, Big Ali and Makedah on vocals. The song uses recreated parts of the massive 1990s hit "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)", by C+C Music Factory featuring Freedom Williams and was released as the third major single off the Western Dream album, on August 22, 2006. It became his most popular single on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 3 and also reached number 6 on the ARIA Singles Chart.

The music video features David Beaudoin, the same boy from the "Love Generation" and "World, Hold On" videos. In this video, the boy "performs" the song (with two young girls) as Sean Paul, The Beatles, Bob Marley and Anthony Kiedis, along with other stylised performances as John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever, Outkast and AC/DC. The video also includes parodies of other music videos, such as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (Nirvana), "Cry Me a River" (Justin Timberlake) and "Thriller" (Michael Jackson). Bob Sinclar appears in the middle of the music video as a neighbor next door who comes to the house's door step to complain about the loud music being played by the boy in the house.

Rachid Taha - Ya Rayah - 1997

Album : Diwân

Artist Biography by Jon O'Brien (Allmusic)

Algerian singer/songwriter Rachid Taha became an iconic revolutionary figure in his adopted French homeland due to his eclectic blend of native rai and chaabi influences, raw punk energy, and rebellious rock & roll attitude. Born in Sig, Mascara Province in Algeria in 1958, Taha emigrated to France with his family at the age of ten. While working in a heating factory in the '70s, he founded his own nightclub, Les Refoules, which played mash-ups of Arabic pop hits over tracks by the likes of Led Zeppelin and Kraftwerk. In 1980, he formed Maghreb punk outfit Carte de Sejour, who recorded two albums, Rhorhomanie and Ramsa, and scored a hit with an anarchic cover version of Charles Trénet's Douce France, before disbanding in 1989. Two years later, he launched his solo career with debut LP, Barbes, but achieved his biggest success with 1998's traditional Algerian/Arab-inspired Diwan and 2004's Tekitoi, both of which were produced by long-term collaborator Steve Hillier. Taha has also performed with Robert Plant, Patti Smith, and Brian Eno, appeared on-stage with Damon Albarn's side project Africa Express, and covered the Clash's "Rock the Casbah" for the Joe Strummer film, The Future Is Unwritten, while several of his songs have been featured in Hollywood movies including Black Hawk Down and The Truth About Charlie.

AllMusic Review by Adam Greenberg (Allmusic)

The sophomore release from Algerian singer Rachid Taha. This is a stunning album, as he moves through straightforward rai to blues, rock, and the full spectrum of worldbeat. The album starts out with a song about exile from home, followed by a musical history of rai, covering all of the basic steps in the development of Taha's chosen base-style. An Egyptian film song from the great Farid El Atrache continues the barrage of bouncing Middle Eastern and North African sounds. A more modern version of the ay-ay genre ensues, with fuzzed guitars looped throughout. Some urban Algerian blues and a bit of chaabi follow, on the topics of love and love lost. The album finishes with a stretch of slightly more serious songs, with a number based on the Algerian war for independence and the torture endured by its prisoners, a political song from a Moroccan group, a basic rai number in French pidgin, and a song from the frustrated youth of Algeria. This is something of a North African tour-de-force, as Taha moves from one style to another, always partially based in the rai tradition, but always expanding to other styles in the process. The songs can be backed by a simple flute, or by a group of rock guitars. Either way, the works are held together by the overriding compositions that Taha is dealing from. It's a great album for those that are already knowledgeable in rai for its new directions, and a nice album for newcomers as it displays the full breadth in a single disc.


Wikipédia :
"Ya Rayah" (Arabic: يا رايح Yâ râyiḥ) is an Algerian chaâbi song composed and performed in the 1970s by Dahmane El Harrachi (Amrani Abderrahmane). Up until the past 15 years this song was known to be Dahman El Harrachi's original song and in the Chaâbi/Andalous tradition of Algiers. This song is a ballad of the traveler, the exiled, the longing to come back, the immigrant, the "wanderin' star", etc. hence its universal appeal. In 1993, it was also performed by French-Algerian singer Rachid Taha on his second self titled album. Also in 2003 by Enrico Macias at the Olympia in Paris. Later on Rachid Taha included the song on Carte Blanche (1997) and Diwân (1998). In September 1998, Taha performed the song live with fellow Algerian singers Khaled and Faudel at the Palais omnisports de Paris-Bercy in Paris, France. Their version was induced on the live album 1,2,3 Soleils the following year.

Taha released the song as a single in August 1997 and reached number eleven on the French singles chart. There have been also multiple renditions of El Rayah by different artists in different languages including Hebrew, Indu[clarification needed], Turkish, Greek ("Ki an se thelo" by George Dalaras) and some Balkan languages from the former Yugoslavia. In February 1998, the song was certified silver in France.

In January 2012, it was covered again by the Algerian singer Amel Bouchoucha (Fady Bitar & The AB Brothers), using African dance beats and Berber sounds, bringing the song closer to its roots.
Ya rayah win msafar trouh taaya wa twali
Chhal nadmou laabad el ghaflin qablak ou qabli (bis)
Chhal cheft al bouldan laamrine wa lber al khali
Chhal dhiyaat wqat chhal tzid mazal ou t'khali
Ya lghayeb fi bled ennas chhal taaya ma tadjri
Tzid waad el qoudra wala zmane wenta ma tedri
Aalach qalbek hzine waalach hakdha ki zawali

Ya nnayem djani khabrek ma sralek ma srali
Hakdha rad el qalb bel djbine sabhane el aali


Chorus :
Oh traveler, where you going ? You'll end up back
How many people have regretted unwise before you and me (bis)

How many overpopulated countries and desert areas have you seen?
How much time have you wasted? How much are you losing more and that you let ?
Oh you the stranger, you never cease to run in other countries
Destiny and time follow their race but you do not know it

(Chorus x2)

Why is it your heart so sad? Why are you standing there like an unhappy?
The difficulties do not last and you do not learn build and nothing more
The days do not last, just like your youth and mine
Oh the unfortunate luck of which went like mine

(Chorus x2)

Oh you who travel, I give you an advice to follow now
See what suits you before you buy or sell
Oh you the sleepy, news reached me of you, it happened to you what happened to me
So the heart back to its creator the Almighty

(Chorus x2)

Alain Chamfort - L'ennemi dans la glace - 1993

Album : Neuf

Artist Biography by Jon O'Brien (Allmusic)

Born Alain Le Govic in Paris in 1949, French pop veteran Alain Chamfort cut his teeth in the music industry performing in several bands, including jazz outfit the Dreamers and rock band Murator, before embarking on a solo career. Initially taken under the wing of Claude François, he signed to the Fleche label in 1971, changed his surname to Chamfort, and went on to score several hits in his homeland. But he achieved his biggest success after he parted company with his mentor over "creative differences" and began working with Serge Gainsbourg, who wrote his 1979 million-selling single, "Manureva." Continuing their partnership well into the '80s, Chamfort also produced records for Lio and A Caus des Garçons, but found it tough to compete with his younger upstarts during the '90s. However, he staged a successful comeback in the following decade with his 2003 album, Le Plaisir; a 2010 tribute to Yves Saint-Laurent; and an alternative 2012 hits collection, Elles & Lui.
Il y a dans ma maison quelqu'un dont j'me méfie
qui me défie
qui s'assied à ma place, qui m'ressemble comme un frère
qui respire mon air

L'ennemi dans la glace
dont le regard me glace
sourit mais j'le connais bien
L'ennemi dans la glace
dont le regard me glace
il me veut pas du bien

Il y a chez moi un hôte indésirable
insaisissable
qui vit sous mon toit, qui dort dans mon lit
qui jamais ne m'oublie

L'ennemi dans la glace
dont le regard me glace
sourit mais moi j'le connais
L'ennemi dans la glace
dont le regard me glace
il m'laissera pas en paix

Dehors je croise des étrangers
des ombres qui marchent dans le noir
Ce n'est pas d'eux que vient le danger
mais je reconnais chaque soir
mon pire ennemi dans ce miroir

Je m'souviens de l'homme que j'étais, mais un traître
l'a fait disparaître
Et moi, qui je suis ? chasseur ou chassé ?
Qu'est-ce qui s'est passé?

L'ennemi dans la glace
dont le regard me glace
Sourit mais j'le connais bien
L'ennemi dans la glace dont le regard me glace
il me veut pas du bien

Dehors je croise des étrangers
des ombres qui marchent dans le noir
Ce n'est pas d'eux que vient le danger
mais je reconnais chaque soir
mon pire ennemi dans ce miroir


There is in my house someone I'm wary of
who challenges me
who sits in my chair, is my spitting image
who breathes my air.
The foe in the mirror
whose stare chills me
is smiling, but I know him well

The foe in the mirror
whose stare chills me
is up to no good

There is in my home an unwanted,
elusive guest
who lives under my roof, sleeps in my bed
and never forgets about me

The foe in the mirror
whose stare chills me
is smiling, but I know better
The foe in the mirror
whose stare chills me
won't leave me in peace

Outside I walk past strangers,
shadows walking in the dark.
It's not from them that danger comes.
Now I recognize every evening
my worst foe in the mirror

I remember the man I used to be, but a traitor
took him away
Now which am I? The hunter or the prey?
What happened?

The foe in the mirror
whose stare chills me
is smiling, but I know him well
The foe in the mirror
whose stare chills me
is up to no good

Outside I walk past strangers,
shadows walking in the dark.
It's not from them that danger comes.
Now I recognize every evening
my worst foe in the mirror

Un gamin d'Paris
C'est tout un poème
Dans aucun pays
Il n'y a le même
Car c'est un Titi
Petit gars dégourdi
Que l'on aime

Un gamin d'Paris
C'est le doux mélange
D'un ciel affranchi
Du diable et d'un ange
Et son œil hardi
S'attendrit devant une oran-an-ge
Pas plus haut que trois pommes
Il lance un défi
A l'aimable bonhomme
Qui l'appelait "mon petit"

Un gamin d'Paris
C'est une cocarde,
Bouton qui fleurit
Dans un pot d'moutarde
Il est tout l'esprit
L'esprit de Paris qui musarde
Pantalons trop longs pour lui
Toujours les mains dans les poches
On le voit qui déguerpit
Aussitôt qu'il voit un képi.
Un gamin d'Paris
C'est tout un poème
Dans aucun pays
Il n'y a le même
Car c'est un titi
Petit gars dégourdi
Que l'on aime

Il est héritier
Lors de sa naissance
De tout un passé
Lourd de conséquences
Et ça, il le sait
Bien qu'il ignore l'Histoire de France
Sachant que sur les places
Pour un idéal
Des p'tits gars pleins d'audace
A leur façon fir'nt un bal

Un gamin d'Paris
Rempli d'insouciance
Gouailleur et ravi
De la vie qui chante
S'il faut, peut aussi
Comme Gavroch' entrer dans la danse

Un gamin d'Paris
M'a dit à l'oreille
Si je pars d'ici
Sachez que la veille
J'aurai réussi
A mettre Paris en bouteille.

A kid from Paris

A kid from Paris
That's a whole poem
In no country
There is the same
Because it's a titi
Smart little man
That we love

A kid from Paris
That's the tender mix
Of a freed sky
Of the devil and angel
And his bold eye
Softens in front of an orange
Not taller than three apples
He challenges
The nice man
Who called him "my little"

A kid from Paris
That's a roundel
A flourishing bouton
In a mustard jar
He is the whole spirit
The spirit of wondrous Paris
Pants too long for him
Always with his hands in his pockets
We see him running away
As soon as he sees a policeman
A kid from Paris
That's a whole poem
In no country
There is the same
Because it's a titi
Smart little man
That we love

He is the heir
Since his birth
Of a whole past
Heavy in consequences
And that, he knows
Even though he ignores the History of France
Knowing that on the squares
For an ideal
Little guys with lots of boldness
In their way danced a ball

A kid from Paris
Full of recklessness
Mocking and glad
Of the life that sings
If he needs to he can also
Like Gavroche join the dance

A kid from Paris
Whispered in my ear
If I leave this place
Know that the day before
I will have managed
To put Paris in a bottle

Fernandel - Félicie aussi ! - 1939

Wikipédia :
Fernand Joseph Désiré Contandin (8 May 1903 – 26 February 1971), better known as Fernandel, was a French actor and singer. Born in Marseille, France, to Désirée Bedouin and Denis Contandin, originating in Perosa Argentina, an Occitan town located in the province of Turin. He was a comedy star who first gained popularity in French vaudeville, operettas, and music-hall revues. His stage name originated from his marriage to Henriette Manse, the sister of his best friend and frequent cinematic collaborator Jean Manse. So attentive was he to his wife that his mother-in-law amusingly referred to him as Fernand d'elle ("her Fernand").

In 1930, Fernandel appeared in his first motion picture and for more than forty years he would be France's top comic actor. He was perhaps best-loved for his portrayal of the irascible Italian village priest at war with the town's Communist mayor in the Don Camillo series of motion pictures. His horse-like teeth became part of his trademark.

He also appeared in Italian and American films. His first Hollywood motion picture was 1956's Around the World in 80 Days in which he played David Niven's coachman. His popular performance in that film led to his starring with Bob Hope and Anita Ekberg in the 1958 comedy Paris Holiday.

In addition to acting, Fernandel also directed or co-produced several of his own films.

Fernandel died from lung cancer and is buried in the Cimetière de Passy, Paris, France.

C'est dans un coin du Bois d'Boulogne
Que j'ai rencontré Félicie,
Elle arrivait de la Bourgogne
Et moi, j'arrivai en taxi,
Je trouvai vite une occasion
D'engager la conversation.

Il faisait un temps superbe,
Je me suis assis sur l'herbe,
Félicie aussi,
J'pensais les arbres bourgeonnent
Et les gueules de loup boutonnent,
Félicie aussi,
Près de nous sifflait un merle,
La rosée faisait des perles,
Félicie aussi
Un clocher sonnait tout proche,
Il avait une drôle de cloche,
Félicie aussi.

Afin d'séduire la petite chatte
Je l'emmenai dîner chez Chartrier,
Comme elle est fine et délicate,
Elle prit un pied d'cochon grillé,
Et pendant qu'elle mangeait le sien
J'lui fit du pied avec le mien.

J'pris un homard sauce tomates,
Il avait du poil au pattes,
Félicie aussi,
Puis une sorte de plat aux nouilles,
On aurait dit une andouille,
Félicie aussi,
Je m'offris une gibelotte,
Elle embaumait l’échalote,
Félicie aussi,
Puis une poire et des gaufrettes,
Seulement la poire était blette,
Félicie aussi.

L'Aramon lui tournant la tête
Elle murmura : « Quand tu voudras ! »,
Alors j'emmenai ma conquête
Dans un hôtel tout près de là
C'était l'hotêl d'Abyssinie
Et du Calvados réuni.

J'trouvai la chambre ordinaire,
Elle était pleine de poussière,
Félicie aussi,
Je m'lavai les mains bien vite,
L'lavabo avait une fuite,
Félicie aussi,
Sous l'armoire y avait une cale,
Car elle était toute bancale,
Félice aussi,
Y avait un fauteuil en plus,
Mais il était rempli d'puces,
Félicie aussi,
Et des draps de toiles molles
Me chatouillaient les guiboles,
Félicie aussi.


So was Félicie

At a corner of the Boulogne wood (1)
I once met Félicie
She was from Burgundy
And I was there by taxi
I soon found an opportunity
To start up a conversation

The weather was splendid
I sat on the grass
So did Félicie
I noticed the trees were budding
So was the snapdragon
So was Félicie
By us a blackbird was whistling
The dew was beading
So was Félicie
Close to us a church tower was ringing
It had a strange bell (2)
So had Félicie

To seduce the pussy
I took her to Chartrier for dinner
Since she was refined and fussy
She had a pig foot on the grill
And while she was eating it
I played footsie with mine

I had a tomato lobster
It had hairy legs
So had Félicie
Then a kind of pasta dish
It looked like a sausage (3)
So did Félicie
I indulged myself in a rabbit stew
It smelled like shallot
So did Félicie
Then a pear and wafers
But the pear was overripe
So was Félicie

Tipsy from Aramon wine
She whispered "whenever you want!"
So I took my conquest
To the nearest hotel
It was the Abyssinia and Calvados hotel in the same place

I found the room common
It was all dusty
So was Félicie
I quickly washed my hands
The sink was leaking
So was Félicie
Under the wardrobe there was a wedge
Because it needed levelling (4)
So did Félicie
There was also an armchair
But it was full of fleas
So was Félicie
And the limp bedsheets
Were tickling my legs
So was Félicie

1. I don't know about Fernandel's times, but the Boulogne wood is known as the "hooker wood".
2. "Cloche" can also refer to the face in familiar language.
3. "Andouille" is basically a cold sausage, but also means "dummy"
4. "Bancal" means "lame" for a person.

Diane Tell - la légende de Jimmy - 1990

Wikipédia :
Diane Tell (born Diane Fortin, 24 December 1958 in Quebec City, Quebec) is a Canadian singer-songwriter. She first studied music (violin and classical guitar) at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Montréal and the Conservatoire de musique du Québec à Val-d'Or, then studied jazz guitar at Cégep de Saint-Laurent in Montreal. She started writing songs at the age of 12 and signed her first record deal at 18. She was probably the first female French Canadian singer songwriter to record her own songs exclusively. "Gilberto", her first hit song was a tribute to João Gilberto but it was "Si j'étais un homme" on her third album that made her a popular artist both in Canada and Europe. She moved to Paris in 1983 and now lives in Biarritz, France.

During her residency in France, she wrote songs with Boris Bergman, Maryline Desbiolles, Maryse Wolinski, Yann Moix and Françoise Hardy. She also participated in three original musicals, La légende de Jimmy, Marilyn Montreuil and recently Je m'voyais déjà.
Je l'aimerai à travers toi
Je t'aimerai à travers lui
Et pour lui tu me donneras
Le meilleur de ta vie
Je l'aimerai à travers toi
Je t'aimerai à travers lui
Et je me donnerai à toi
Comme si tu étais lui

Je n'irai plus au cinéma
Si tu veux tu seras celui
Celui qui le remplacera
Dans mes nuits avec lui
Je n'irai plus au cinéma
Je t'aimerai pour aujourd'hui
Je revivrai à travers toi
La légende de Jimmy

Je l'aimerai à travers toi
Je t'aimerai à travers lui
Il y aura entre toi et moi
La légende de Jimmy

Malgré le temps qui passera
Même si la vie nous désunis
Il restera entre toi et moi
La légende de Jimmy

La légende de Jimmy
La légende de Jimmy

Jimmy’s Legend

I’ll love him through you
I’ll love you though him
And for him you’ll give me
The best of your life
I’ll love him through you
I’ll love you though him
And I’ll give myself to you
As if you were him

I won’t go back to the cinema
If you want you’ll be the one
The one who’ll replace him
In my nights with him
I won’t go back to the cinema
I’ll love you for today
I’ll come back to life through you
Jimmy’s legend

I’ll love him through you
I’ll love you though him
There will come between you and I
Jimmy’s legend

Although time will pass,
Even if life separates us
He’ll belong between you and I
Jimmy’s legend

Jimmy’s legend
Jimmy’s legend

Jakie Quartz - Mise au point - 1983

Wikipédia
Jakie Quartz (born Jacqueline Cuchet, July 31, 1955) is a French singer. Her biggest hit singles in France were "Mise au point" (1983, covered by Leslie in 2007 and Quentin Mosimann in 2008), "Vivre ailleurs" (1986, #11 in France,[1] produced by Secret Service) and "À la vie à l'amour" (1987, #30 in France[1] and #55 in the UK Singles Chart [2])

(Parlé:)
Bon c'est l'heure où les souvenirs se ramènent
Juste quand le sommeil se met en grève
Le blues en profite pour s'installer
Quelques verres de vin blanc pour exciter le manque
Et on se repasse le film sur un air de romance
On revoit les débuts et on connaît la fin
Oh ! ça c'est mon côté pessimiste.
Je préfère penser que c'est une histoire sans fin
Si ça vous dérange pas trop ? Oh pour une fois !
Bon je laisse tomber le couplet sur l'amour immortel
Ça ne concerne pas grand' monde
Puis de toute façon
La mort d'un amour donne la vie à un autre
Y a déjà moins de soucis à se faire
Tiens ! Le bar-tabac de la rue de Clichy
Où tu t'envoies ton petit crème
J'le connais par cœur
J'peux même le dessiner les yeux fermés

(Chanté:)
Juste une mise au point
Sur les plus belles images de ma vie
Sur les clichés trop pâles d'une love-story
Sur les tam-tams d'une femme sans alibi
Qui rêve toutes ses nuits
Juste une mise au point
Pour un petit clin d'œil de survie
Pour tous les fous, les malades de l'amour
Pour toutes les victimes du romantisme, comme moi
Juste un p'tit clin d'œil, une mise au point

(Parlé:)
Nos vacances au soleil, sous les UVB

Dans un institut de beauté
Notre superbe voilier qui a jamais vu la mer
Nos lits improvisés sur un morceau de moquette
Les discussions de fin de soirée chez les copains
Oh oui ! parlons-en des copains
Pour foutre la merde ils sont champions !
Gros plan sur tes yeux quand ils me disent je t'aime
Nos scènes de jalousies qui fatiguent tout le monde
La rue des Bernardins, le square Gambetta
Nos crises de fou rire juste au mauvais moment
Et nos jeux de mots ringards qui ne font rire que nous
Puis, mon premier rendez-vous dans un night-club désert
Avec la bonne copine qui veut pas tenir la chandelle
Et qui se tire en râlant

(Chanté:)
Juste une mise au point
Sur les plus belles images de ma vie
Sur les clichés trop pâles d'une love-story
Sur les tam-tams d'une femme sans alibi
Qui rêve toute ses nuits
Juste une mise au point
Pour un petit clin d'œil de survie
Pour tous les fous, les malades de l'amour,
Pour toutes les victimes du romantisme, comme moi,
Juste un p'tit clin d'œil, une mise au point.

Clarification

(spoken)
Bummer, all these memories turn up
just as my sleep goes on strike.
The blues takes the opportunity to settle in.
A couple of glasses of white wine to arouse the withdrawal1
and you replay the movie on a romantic tune.
You go over the begining again, and you know the end.
Well, that's my pessimistic side.
I rather like to think this is a neverending story.
If you don't mind? Come on, just this one time!
Ok, I'll skip the verse about eternal love,
Not that many people are in that case.
And anyway, the death of one love
brings life to another.
That's a comfort already.
Look! The café in Clichy street
where you drink your flat white...
I know it by heart.
I could even draw it with my eyes closed

(sung)
Just a clarification
about the most beautiful pictures of my life
about the too washed out clichés of a love story
about the tam-tams of a woman without excuses
who dreams all her nights2
Just a clarification
for a little wink of survival
for all the lunatics, the lovesicks
for all the victims of romanticism like me,
just a little wink, a clarification

(spoken)
Our hollidays in the sun, under the sunlamps
in a beauty parlor.
Our magnificent sailing boat that never went to sea
Our makeshift beds on a patch of carpeting
The late night talks at the buddies places
Oh yes! Talk about these buddies,
so good at stirring up the shit!
Close-up on your eyes as they say "I love you" to me
Our fits of jealousy everyone is fed up with
The rue des Bernardins, the Gambetta square
Our bouts of laughter at the most inappropriate moment
and our terrible puns only we find funny
And then, my first date in an empty disco
with the best friend not too happy to be the third wheel
who grumbles and is soon out of there

(sung)
Just a clarification

1. This is a pretty weird expression in French. I can only guess what she means by that
2. does not make more sense in French

Passi - Face à la mer (feat Calogero) - 2004

Album : Odyssée

Wikipédia :
Passi (French pronunciation: ​[paˈsi]) is a French hip hop artist who became famous in the mid-1990s with the group Ministère AMER, which included himself and Stomy Bugsy. He is most widely known, however, as a solo artist, as well as a participant in many other groups, such as Bisso Na Bisso and Dis l'heure 2 zouk.

Passi was born on 21 December 1972, in Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo. In 1979, his family moved to Sarcelles, a suburb of Paris. He graduated from lycée and created the band Ministère AMER with Stomy Bugsy, who he had gone to school with. The group's first album, Pourquoi tant de haine?, was released in 1992, and Passi was forced to end his agronomy studies at the University of Paris (Nanterre) to be able to focus on music. Ministère AMER followed up with "95200" which was released in 1994.

Passi's first solo album, Les tentations, was released in 1997, and it sold 450,000 copies. The project Bisso na Bisso (meaning 'Just between ourselves' in Lingala, Congo's most widely spoken language), was a collective of French hip hop artists with African origins. It included names such as Ärsenik, and he released their album Racines in 1999. That same year, Passi released his second solo album, Genèse.

In 2002, Passi was asked to create the anthem for the African Nations Cup football competition together with Congolese singer Papa Wemba. The two eventually managed to attract into the project such names as Youssou N'Dour and Cheb Mami. Passi's third album, Odyssée, came out in 2004.

Passi is also known as the artist whose song, "Il fait chaud" ("It's hot"), was featured in the last episode in the television show, Sex and the City. The song was not credited at the end of the show, leaving many viewers to call the song simply "The French Rap".


(Passi)
On ne choisit ni son origine, ni sa couleur de peau.
Comme on rêve d'une vie de château, quand on vit le ghetto.
Naître l'étau autour du cou comme Cosette pour Hugo.
Être en treillis dans le conflit et prier le Très-Haut.
Fils du C.O.N.G.O. cette haine j'ai au
M.I.C.R.O. J'ai l'poids des mots.
Sortir d'en bas, rêver de déchirer ce tableau
Fait d'armes, de larmes,
Fait de sang et sanglots.

(Calogero)
Face à la mer
J'aurais dû grandir;
Face contre terre
J'aurais pu mourir.
Je me relève,
Je prends mon dernier rêve.

(Passi)
Tous deux la même dalle
Et tous deux déçus.

(Calogero)
Je prends mon dernier rêve.

(Passi)
La sécheresse sur une terre où on ne cesse de semer,
Tristesse dans des yeux qui ne peuvent pleurer.
J'ai beaucoup de rêves lointains, je me suis tant rebellé,
J'ai bu beaucoup de baratin et ça m'a trop saoulé.
Dans la vie y a les tapes au fond et les tapes à côté,
Les "T'as pas un euro ?" ou la tape à l'arrachée,
Y a l'État, les RMistes, les "t'as qu'à taffer".
Si t'es en bas, faut cravacher, t'as qu'à pas lâcher.
T'as pas connu ça, toi, l'envie d'empocher les patates,
Être à gauche, droite, face à la mer, loin des galères ?
T'as pas connu ça, l'envie de t'en sortir, distribuer des patates,
Des gauches, droites, avec un air patibulaire ?

(Calogero)
Face à la mer
J'aurais dû grandir;
Face contre terre
J'aurais pu mourir.
Je me relève,
Je prends mon dernier rêve.

(Passi)
Tous deux la même dalle
Et tous deux déçus.

(Calogero)
Je prends mon dernier rêve.
Face à la mer
C'est toi qui résistes;
Face contre terre
Ton nom sur la liste.
De tout ton être,
Cité à comparaître.

(Passi)
C'est l'histoire de cette plume qui s'étouffe dans le goudron,
D'cette matière grise dont le pays n'a pas fait acquisition,
On se relève, on repart à fond, on vise le Panthéon,
J'en place une à ceux qui en ont, qui rêvent consécration.
La dalle, la gnaque, je l'ai comme mes potes l'ont.
On veut toucher le ciel étoilé sans baisser le pantalon.
Trop peu bonnes fées et trop de cendrillons.
Calo-Passi 2.0.0.4. action.

(Calogero)
Face à la mer
J'aurais dû grandir;
Face contre terre
J'aurais pu mourir.
Je me relève,
Je prends mon dernier rêve.

(Passi)
Tous deux la même dalle
On est tous deux déçus
(Calogero)
Je prends mon dernier rêve
(Passi)
Tous deux la même dalle,
On vise tous deux au-dessus
(Calogero)
Je prends mon dernier rêve

(Passi)
On ne choisit ni son origine, ni sa couleur de peau.
Comme on rêve d'une vie de château, quand on vit le ghetto.
Naître l'étau autour du cou comme Cosette pour Hugo.
Être en treillis dans le conflit et prier le Très-Haut.
Fils du C.O.N.G.O. cette haine j'ai au
M.I.C.R.O. J'ai l'poids des mots.

Face à la mer
On veut tous grandir.
Calo-Passi,
Trop jeunes pour mourir.




In front of the sea

(Passi)
You choose neither your origin, nor your skin color.
You dream to live like a prince so much when you endure the ghetto.
Being born with a vice on your neck, like Cosette for Hugo*,
Wearing an outfit in the conflict and praying to the Almighty.
Son of the Congo, this hatred I got on the
Mike. I know what words means.
Going futher up, being longing to tear this picture
Made out of weapons, of tears,
Made out of blood and sob.

(Calogero)
In front of the sea
I should have grown up;
Face down the ground
I could have died.
I am standing up again,
I am having my last dream.

(Passi)
We're both hungry*,
We're both disappointed.

(Calogero)
I am having my last dream.

(Passi)
Dryness on an earth continually spread,
Sadness in eyes which cannot cry.
I drunk a lot of bullshit* and got sick of it.
In life, there are great sucesses and bitter chesses,
There are "Got 1€ ?" and handbag thefts.
There is the State, there are the RMistes*, the "Get yourself a job!"
If you're down, gotta work damn hard, just hold on.
Did you ever know this desire to win through in the end, to get dough ?
Being on the left, on the right*, in front of the sea, far away from the hassles ?
Did you ever know this desire to win through in the end, to give punches* ?
Left, right, with a sinister appearence.

(Calogero)
In front of the sea
I should have grown up;
Face down the ground
I could have died.
I am standing up again,
I am having my last dream.

(Passi)
We're both hungry,
We're both disappointed.

(Calogero)
I am having my last dream.
In front of the sea
You resist.
Face down the ground
Your name is on the list,
With your whole being,
Called to appear.

(Passi)
This is the story of this feather which chokes in the tar,
Of this grey matter* which the country never purchased.
We stand up and start again as fast as possible, we aim the Pantheon*.
This goes to those who got balls, who dream of consecration.
I'm ambitious, aggressive, just like my homies.
We wanna touch the stared sky without dropping our pants*.
Not enough good fairies, too much Cinderellas.
Calo-Passi 2.0.0.4. action.

(Calogero)
In front of the sea
I should have grown up;
Face down the ground
I could have died.
I am standing up again,
I am having my last dream.

(Passi)
We're both ambitious,
We're both disappointed.
(Calogero)
I am having my last dream.
(Passi)
We're both ambitious,
Both aim up.
(Calogero)
I am having my last dream.

(Passi)
You choose neither your origin, nor your skin color.
You dream to live like a prince so much when you endure the ghetto.
Being born with a vice on your neck, like Cosette for Hugo,
Wearing an outfit in the conflict and pray to the Almighty.
Son of the Congo, this hatred I got on the
Mike. I know what words means.

In front of the sea
We all want to grow up.
Calo-Passi,
Too young to die.


*Cosette is a character from a novel (Les Misérables) by Victor Hugo. She is a little girl exploited by crooked inn-keepers.
*Word play : instead of saying verre (drink), he says rêve (dream).
* Double meaning : avoir la dalle is an informal way to say you are very hungry and that you have a lot of ambitions.
* In fact, "drunk" because saoûler is the slang for "to annoy" and normally means "to make drunk".
* The RMIstes are poor people receiving money from the State.
* "on the left, on the right" : politics.
* "Patate here is the slang for money and punches.
* "Grey matter" : slang for brain.
* The Pantheon is the place where important French people's ashes are kept.
* To drop one's pants : to be humiliated

Someone talkin' to my soul
Someone shakin' my knee bone
Someone ringing at my door
And I'm crawling on the floor
I got shivers on my own
I got quivers to the bone
It's contagious
Don't know why
Someone drank
My blood like a glass of wine

Got nowhere to hide
Inside your dirty mind
I wanna say no
But my heart keep sayin'
I want more

So I sing sing sing
I'm your prisoner
I'm your thing
I just sing sing sing
I got a ball and chain
And I learn how to swim

I wake up in the morning
My body's aching
I still have no memories
Of what we were doin'
You said the world is filled with crocodiles
You said we're surrounded by sharks
With your white horse
My prince of the darkness
I'm gonna fly away
I'm gonna fly away

Got nowhere to hide
Inside your dirty mind
I wanna say no
But my heart keep sayin'
I want more

So I sing sing sing
I'm your prisoner
I'm your thing
I just sing sing sing
I got a ball and chain
And I learn how to swim
Sing sing

Gérard Grisey - Partiels - 1975 - Classical

Artist Biography by Blair Johnston (Allmusic)

Like so many French composers of the latter third of the twentieth century, Gérard Grisey began more or less as an academic-style twelve-tone composer but found, as he moved through his twenties, that only a complete change of musical scenery -- a break from the ways of serialism and the embrace of what was to him a more instinctive approach -- would enable him to achieve his goals as a musician. The result of his new path was a kind of music-making that eventually became widely known as "musique spectrale," an exploration into the fundamentals of pitch, harmony, and musical time that exerted a heavy influence on the next generation of composers (French ones in particular); but the father of this new musical syntax was one of the first to have to abandon it -- Grisey died of an aneurysm in 1998, aged just 52.

Born in Belfort, in 1946, Grisey studied at several eminent French and German institutions: Trossingen Conservatory, the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique, l'École Normale Supérieure de Musique, the Paris Conservatoire, IRCAM, and the Darmstadt Summer Courses, all at various times between 1963 and 1974. While working as a freelance composer, Grisey co-founded the ensemble L'Itinéraire for the purpose of promoting and playing new music. From the mid-1970s on, he was active as a teacher as well, first at the Darmstadt Summer Courses (1976 - 1982), then on the faculty of the University of California, Berkeley (1982 - 1985), and finally at the Paris Conservatoire (from 1987 until his death).

According to contemporary scholarship, Grisey's most significant music is concerned, is contained in a large multi-piece cycle called Les espaces acoustiques (1974 - 1985). Although the components this work were composed separately for diverse ensembles and can be played independently of one another, the music is meant be performed in its entirety. Throughout Les espaces acoustiques Grisey inserts tonal elements (harmonies, gestures) into an essentially atonal atmosphere, and by virtue of carefully planned repetition, allows the raw sonic substances involved to develop on terms that seem as much theirs as his.
Wikipédia :
Partiels (1975) is a defining piece of Spectral music by Gérard Grisey whose opening is derived from an electronic sonogram analysis of the attack of a low E2 on a trombone. This spectrum is orchestrally synthesized through the assignation of different instruments to each partial in such a way as to harmonically and gesturally model the dynamic temporal evolution of the attack. Many second and third generation spectral composers cite Partiels as causing their initial interest in the spectral outlook.

Thus the opening features the successive entrance of lower partials with the fifth and ninth partials being louder than lower ones, including the fundamental, and all higher partials gradually trailing off in amplitude. Each partial is approximated to the nearest quarter tone. A low bass reinforces the fundamental an octave lower on the open E1 string which is central to Les Espaces Acoustiques cycle of which Partiels is a part.

The piece also makes use of sum and difference tones to create harmonies.[5]

Triangle - Peut-être demain ? - 1970

Album : Peut-être demain ?

Wikipédia (Google translation) :

The group that forms the middle of 1967 is causing a trio Gérard Fournier says "Butterfly" on bass and vocals, Peter Fanen, guitar and future member of the jazz band Zoo and Jean-Pierre Prévotat on drums. This training does not record any disc and has only merit of having given the name to the group.

In 1968 Pierre Fanen left the band, he was replaced by Alain Renaud on guitar and vocals. It is this training that released the first 45 laps, with lyrics in English. The success is not with go and Alain Renaud goes in turn. To replace arrive François Jeanneau, on keyboards and saxophone, and Paul Farges on guitar. This new formation publishes 45s sung for the first face in French and the second in English. Side A, Elegy to Gabrielle, is based on a true story, the suicide Russier Gabrielle, a teacher love his students. The group holds only late 1969 to early 1970 as the curse hit. Triangle again loses her guitarist and his departure marks the arrival of Marius "Mimi" Lorenzini and his guitar. This new quartet is the "official" group formation, most lasting from 1970 until mid-1973, she published two albums, the first album is still sung mostly in English, and a handful of 45s.

Triangle finally found success with the title Peut-être demain ?, the group interprets in the film by Claude Zidi, The Bidasses madness - in which there are also Martin Circus. The film is the best success in the 1971 film, in France, with more than seven million entries.

The press of the time opposed groups Triangle, qualified intellectual and Variations, considered more carefree, somewhat in the manner of what was done the previous decade about the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in England. For journalists, Angel Triangle and share the title of "best French band".

François Faton Cahen Magma and Jean-Michel Jarre participate in the second album, commonly known Viens avec nous, the flagship title of the album comes out in 45 rounds.

In 1972, the group is at the Bobino and the Olympia, opening for Robert Charlebois.

The success induced tensions and differences within the group that Gerard Fournier leaves. He attempts a solo career without success, he died prematurely in 1989.

To replace him, the remaining three members, including Jean-Pierre Prévotat alone is present since the beginning of the adventure, René Devaux recruited on bass, but he did not sing, Denis Duhazé, guitar and vocals, also joined the group. With the addition of this second guitar, the band's sound hardens, without losing the jazzy sounds, due to brass François Jeanneau. The quintet releases first album to receive a title, Disambiguation, and four 45s. The album was recorded in part at Abbey Road Studios, and Stéphane Grappelli participates under Praise of Folly.

The group disbanded in 1974, following the publication of a final 45 laps Ticket to ... / Tell me, very badly distributed.

Prévotat Jean-Pierre, born in 1945, which was also one of the batsmen Johnny Hallyday), died 27 January 20113.

Mimi Lorenzini, born in 1949, died 12 December 20144.

A box comes out on CD in 1997, taking the integral of the group.

Ils viendront la nuit
A coup de bottes
De crosses
Pour t'interroger
Te faire dire
Le pire
Nul n'est à l'abri
De ces manoeuvres
De pieuvres
Dans un monde où rien
Ne s'organise
A ta guise

Si tu es gauchiste
Contestataire
Nègre ou Juif
Ces pas dans la nuit
Sont pour te prendre
Te prendre
Peut-être demain
Pourrons-nous vivre
Mais libres
Des jours dont la peur
Ne noircira pas
Les heures

Maybe tomorrow
They will come at night
to interrogate you
with their boots
and their rifle butts,
to pull the worst
out of you.
No-one is safe
from these many-tentacled
schemes,
in a world where nothing
goes according
to your wishes.

If you are a Commie,
a Nigger or a Yid,
these footsteps in the night
are coming for you,
for you.
Maybe tomorrow
our days will become
free
from the fear
that darkens
them.

Despite the likeable argument of the song, the French stings the eye a bit.
I rephrased the last sentence, which literally reads "Maybe tomorrow we will be able to live, now this time free, days whose hours will not be darkened by fear"

Anyway - Face au monde - 1987

Album : Rival

Spirit of Matel.com (Google translation)
ANYWAY is a group born in the mid 80 between Dole (39) and Dijon.
A basic Heavy Rock, the group consists of original songs written and sung with lyrics in French.

September 1985 saw the release of a 4 tracks demo recorded in 16 tracks.
ANYWAY then record his first Maxi 45s "Rival". The latter, recorded and mixed in studios KREZIMIKROID / CalREN STUDIOS (RFA), in September 1987, contains 4 pieces.

Rare thing to be clarified, ANYWAY make a touring Indian Ocean (Mayotte, Reunion) early in the year 1990. He will also perform in Dijon, Lourdes, Valencia (with ODYSSEE, MANIGANCE ...), Montpellier ...

In 1991, it appears that album was being prepared. This dernierAnyway, called "Between Heaven and Earth" will not be completed.

At the beginning of 1995 that came out first album produced by Production Brennus, then a young and new box that aims to focus on French metal formations. This album, in addition to eight new songs, also contains 4 bonus tracks of the Maxi 45s released in 1987.

The reception of the press is very encouraging and is the praise, entirely justified, of the wafer.

ANYWAY also turn a clip (FR3 Bourgogne). There is also a video of the concert that took place at the Château de Crissey July 12, 1996.

Michaël Zurita (GuitareAnyway, ex UBRIS) joined the combo in September 1995.

The group continued to compose, but concerts are rarer and money fail to record new titres.Dommage because there really material to release a true firebrand with titles like: The beasts, No problem, male saint, Religion, My kingdom, Flasher, Conquest, Between Heaven and Earth, Not too crazy, Unwinding ...

In February 1997, Michaël Zurita decides to leave the group and go to Paris.

Finally, ANYWAY cease all activity to the greatest misfortune of all. A combo certainly over the lot in dispute that would not still able to deliver us good things.

Tonton David - Chacun sa route - 1996

Wikipédia :
David Grammont, better known under his stage name Tonton David is a French Reggae singer born in Réunion. He is renowned for his raggamuffin performances, but uses influences of soul music, gro kâ (from the French West Indies), the Zairian rumba.

Tonton David had a turbulent childhood in a suburb of Paris. He left his family at 14, and managed to make a career in music with powerful and political lyrics. In 1990 Tonton David had his big break when he was featured in a TV report about "Black Paris". Tonton David's performance resulted in signing with Virgin record label. Shortly after, he recorded "Peuples du monde", which was featured on the famous French rap compilation Rapattitudes.

Le blues de la racaille released on 2 December 1991, was his debut album where he explored social issues such as unemployment, poverty, racism, becoming a figurehead for a whole generation of disenchanted French youth. In 1991 he performed in front of an audience of 12,000 music fans at the Fête des Kafs in Saint Denis, La Réunion and in 1992 at Reggae Sunsplash festival in Kingston, Jamaica. In 1993, he released his second album Allez leur dire recorded in Memphis, Tennessee. "Sûr et certain" taken from the album was released as a single. 1995 saw as yet his biggest success with the song "Chacun sa route" from the soundtrack of the film Un indien dans la ville. His third album Récidiviste in 1995 gave the successful singles, "Pour tout le monde pareil" and a collaboration with rai star Cheb Mami in "Fugitifs". The fourth album Faut qu'ça arrête was more influenced by Haitian music out of collaboration with Haitian musician Papa Jube.

Chacun son chemin
Chacun son rêve
Chacun son destin
Dites-leur que chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Passe le message a ton voisin

Levé à 7h du mat' t'es déjà en r'tard
Ton patron va encore te brasser
Tu t'habille direct
Tu prendras ta douche ce soir
Tu finis d'lasser tes chaussures dans les escaliers
J'ai besoin d'air ,besoin de liberté
Ce n'sont pas des mensonges c'est la réalité
Je n'suis pas un roi mais je n'suis pas un pion
Je dois être le fou comme je suis pas cavalier

Dites-leur que chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Chacun son rêve
Chacun son destin
Dites-leur que chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Passe le message a ton voisin

J'ai fais un rêve le peuple était au pouvoir
Il n'y avait plus du tout de politiciens
C'était le souk
Plus d'bandits des magasins,
Tout l'monde avait un coin
Et plus personne n'avait faim.

Mais je ne délire pas mais je suis très sérieux
Oh oh oh oh oh
Mais je ne délire pas mais je suis très sérieux
Allez leur dire qu'on vient pas faire du cirque.

Chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Chacun son rêve
Chacun son destin
Dites-leur que chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Passe le message a ton voisin

Et ça donne chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Chacun son rêve
Chacun son destin
Dites-leur que chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Passe le message a ton voisin
Et ca donne passe le message à ton voisin
Et ca donne

Je me souviens des amis avec qui j'ai grandi
Ce sentiment d'être exclu nous rendait solidaire
Chacun prit son train quand les années passèrent
A chacun son move, à chacun sa galère
Les chemins où tu ris, sont de même que ceux où tu pleures
La vie est une aventure il ne faut pas avoir peur

Mais, te souviens-tu des amis que tu as eu ?
Question :te souviens-tu de ce que tu y as perdu?

Dites leur que chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Chacun son rêve
Chacun son destin
Dites-leur que chacun sa route
Chacun son chemin
Passe le message a ton voisin
Et ça donne passe le message à ton voisin
Et ça donne

Et ça donne passe le message à ton voisin
Et ça donne passe le message à ton voisin
Et ça donne passe le message à ton voisin
Passe le message à ton voisin

To each his way

Tell them that... to each his way
to each his path
to each his dream
to each his fate.
Tell them that to each his way
to each his path
Let the next guy know about it

Up at 7 you're already late
Your boss vill give you a good what-for again
You dress in a hurry
You'll take a shover this evening
You finish lacing your shoes in the staircase
I need some air, some freedom
This is no lie, it's the truth
I am no king, but I am no pawn.
I must be a fool since I hold true to my words1

Tell them that to each his way
to each his path
to each his dream
to each his fate.
Tell them that to each his way
to each his path
Let the next guy know about it

I had a dream: the people was in power
there were no poloticians left at all
This was a mess
No more shoplifters
Everyone had a place to stay
and nobody was hungry anymore.

Now I'm not kidding you, I'm dead serious.
Oh oh oh oh
Now I'm not kidding you, I'm dead serious.
Go and tell them we're not here to put on a show

Tell them that... to each his way
to each his path
to each his dream
to each his fate.
Tell them that to each his way
to each his path
Let the next guy know about it

And it goes... to each his way
to each his path
to each his dream
to each his fate.
Tell them that to each his way
to each his path
Let the next guy know about it
And it goes... let the next guy know about it
And it goes...

I remember the friends I grew up with
This feeling of being outcasts drew us together
Each one boarded his own train as years went by
To each his move, to each his strife
The paths you walk laughing are the same you cry on.
Life is an adventure, you shall not be afraid.

Now do you remember the friends you got?
I ask you: do you remember what you lost there?

Tell them that... to each his way
to each his path
to each his dream
to each his fate.
Tell them that to each his way
to each his path
Let the next guy know about it
And it goes... let the next guy know about it
And it goes...

To each his way
to each his path
to each his dream
to each his fate.
Tell them that to each his way
to each his path
Let the next guy know about it
And it goes... let the next guy know about it
And it goes... let the next guy know about it
And it goes... let the next guy know about it
Let the next guy know about it
Let the next guy know about it

Guerre Froide - Demain Berlin - 1981

EP : 12''

Wikipédia (google translation)
Like some French groups appeared at the dawn of the 80s, Cold War immediately enrolled in a post-punk movement / coldwave. Soon, the group was able to impose its repetitive and hypnotic musical atmosphere sometimes aggressive, sometimes throbbing, on which the song has lyrics ask footprints visions both existential and poetic crossings social criticism and even political.

From the beginning, for its public performances, Cold War chose to combine minimalist musical universe to the projection of still and moving images.

From 4 to 5 members, the band released an EP 45s 4 titles a few months before stopping after two years of existence. "Tomorrow Berlin" ticking tube, assured a posthumous consecration to Cold War well beyond France, in Europe but also internationally.

This persistent reputation led two of the founding members of the group to reform it in April 2006, after a long separation and several side projects (For Example the best known), with the help of a new bassist. The stated goal was to be able to take on creative ambitions finally made possible by evolving technologies, while preserving the style and musical approach of the Cold War.

The atmosphere has become more melancholy, the words are even more sharp. An album that links the past and the present, Anxiety and Entertainment, was released in May 2007 on the label Definitive Fog. Cold War has since regularly participated in some concerts and festivals. A second more ambitious album, stupefy the masses, was released in May 2010, also on the final Mist label. It was the subject of several rave reviews.

Since re-forming the group regularly performs in concert in France and Europe.

Means a title of the passage 81 in Berlin Bye Bye Blondie film released in 2012.
Tu me rencontras à Berchtesgaden
You met me in Berchtesgaden
I was sure that it should happen
Sûr que ça en valait la peine
Car tu chantas avec une seule idée en tête
Avec une seule idée en tête
"Ich bin von Kopf bis FuB auf liebe eingestellt"
Auf Liebe eingestellt - Eingestellt Auf Liebe eingestellt

je t'ai rencontrée à Nuremberg
When I met you in Nuremberg Y
ou were as cold as an iceberg
Aussi froide qu'un iceberg
Tandis que tu t'habillais tout en noir
Que tu t'habillais tout en noir
Quelques vibrations brisèrent le miroir
Vibrations brisèrent le miroir - Le miroir
Vibrations brisèrent le miroir

Nous nous rencontrerons dans les ruines de Berlin
We will meet in the ruins of Berlin
We will laugh 'cause death ain't a sin
La mort semble parfois un bien
Alors tu chanteras "Ich bin die fesche Lola"
Ich bin die fesche Lola
So you'll sing "Ich bin die fesche Lola" !
Ich bin die fesche Lola - Die fesche Lola
Lola-Lola
Lola-Lola
Nous nous rencontrerons dans les ruines de Berlin
We will meet in the ruins of Berlin
We will laugh 'cause death ain't a sin
La mort semble parfois un bien
A Berlin, bientôt la fin
Berlin - 81

Nous nous rencontrerons dans les ruines de Berlin
We will meet in the ruins of Berlin
We will laugh 'cause death ain't a sin
La mort semble parfois un bien
A Berlin, bientôt la fin
Berlin - Zum Ende, zum Ende, zum Ende ...

Izïa Higelin - So much trouble - 2011

Album : So much trouble


Artist Biography by Jason Birchmeier (Allmusic)

Izïa is a French rock singer who made her full-length debut in 2009 with an eponymously titled album. Born in 1990 in Paris, she is the daughter of French pop singer/songwriter Jacques Higelin, who made his solo album debut in 1971, and the sister of French pop singer/songwriter Arthur H, who made his solo album debut in 1990. Her full-length debut, released in association with the Universal Music label A/Z, peaked at number 31 on the French albums chart. The album includes songs written by Higelin in conjunction with Sébastien Hoog and Antoine Toustou, the former of whom is the guitarist in her band, whose live performances include the Printemps de Bourges festival.


Album Review by Jon O'Brien (Allmusic)

Continuing to distance herself even further from the jazz-pop chansons of her father Jacques Higelin and brother Arthur H, 21-year-old French vocalist Izia's second album, So Much Trouble, is a relentlessly intense affair that suggests her "wild child of Gallic rock" reputation is entirely justified. Channeling the rebellious spirit of Patti Smith, the dramatic style of Siouxsie Sioux, and the whiskey-soaked vocal presence of Janis Joplin, Izia tears her way through the primitive post-punk of the title track, the groove-laden blues-rock of "I Hate You," and the menacing grunge of "I Can Dance" with the gusto of a woman possessed, while the constant stream of Led Zeppelin-esque riffs, flashes of psychedelia, and primal garage rock beats reveal that her professed love of vintage '70s rock wasn't just hollow talk. A few more melodic offerings showcase a slightly softer side, such as the floaty chanteuse style she adopts on the angular indie disco of "Penicilline," the sweeping orchestral finale on the gothic early PJ Harvey-inspired "Twenty Times a Day," and the slinky but sinister minimal lounge-pop of "That Night." But Izia is a much more captivating prospect when she appears to be unleashing her inner demons, whether it's on the furiously percussive "Top of the World," the Morricone-meets-the Strokes vibes of "She," or the raucous rock & roll of "Your Love Is a Gift." In other hands, So Much Trouble could well have been merely a transparent attempt to leave any family connections behind once and for all, but instead it's an authentic and passionate homage to an iconic rock era that firmly establishes Izia's attitude-laden credentials.

Hello Spiritualized, you can find on the first post of the thread all the songs.

I try to choose songs of all decades in the maximum different genre.

J'essaye de ne mettre qu'une chanson par artiste pour le moment, et pas forcément la plus connue, j'ai encore environ 500 groupes ou chanteurs à venir (et j'en rajoute sans cesse dans ma liste "à venir") mais il y a clairement des styles musicaux que je ne maîtrise pas ou que je ne connais pas du tout (metal / ghotique / r'n'b / rap).

Si tu désires y participer, ce sera avec plaisir (en conservant la mise en forme si possible) ;)
