Catherine Lara - Le rockeuse de diamants - 1983
Chanson / Rock

Album: La rockeuse de diamants.

Wikipédia:
Catherine Lara (born Catherine Bodet; 29 May 1945) is a French violinist, composer and singer.

Catherine Baudet was born in Poissy, near Paris, the daughter of a doctor (and amateur violinist). Her mother brought up Catherine, her sister and two brothers in a musical household. Catherine started playing the violin at age 11 and entered the conservatoire at Versailles, leaving two years later with a first prize in 1966.

She played and composed for famous singers before starting to sing herself. Her first album, Ad libitum was released in 1972. Since her 1979 album Coup d'feel, her songs are more influenced by rock music. The 1983 album La Rockeuse de diamant provided a major success with the single "La Rockeuse de diamant", and a daring song with "Autonome", in which she says : "[I'm] free to love a woman or a man". In 1986, she made a breakthrough with the single "Nuit magique" written by Luc Plamondon, her biggest hit that brought her fame and made her win a Victoires de la Musique (French Grammy Awards) for best female singer of the year. She published her autobiography in 1987, L'Aventurière de l'archet perdu. She was named Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture in 1990.

Still with Plamondon, she worked on a rock opera where she embodied female writer George Sand, titled Sand et les Romantiques in 1991. As a part of the show, she released a duet with her friend Véronique Sanson, entitled "Entre elle et moi".

She takes part in charity tours for Les Restos du coeur, alongside French rock stars Johnny Hallyday, Eddy Mitchell and Jean-Jacques Goldman, as well as Sidaction and Sol En Si. In 2002, she composed a song for the France national football team, to be sung by Johnny Hallyday. The same year Lara was named Officer of the Ordre de la Légion d'honneur.





Je dors avec, j'en rêve la nuit
Ils sont ma Mecque, ma seule folie
Quand j'les vois sous toutes leurs facettes
Taillés en roses ou en navettes
J'ai comme un frisson dans le dos
C'est mon point faible, c'est mon crédo

Je suis la rockeuse de diamants
Au fond du cuir noir de mon gant
Je suis la rockeuse de diam
Je suis la rockeuse de diam
Je suis la rockeuse de diamants

J' passe ma vie chez les diamantaires
Qui brillent de Paris à Anvers
Sur ma poitrine coulent des rivières
Mais je m'préfère en solitaire
Je roule mon caillou dans mon gant
C'est mon piment, mon élément

Je suis la rockeuse de diamants
Au fond du cuir noir de mon gant
Je suis la rockeuse de diam
Je suis la rockeuse de diam
Je suis la rockeuse de diamants

À moi les carrières du Congo
Attention, drageuse de joyaux
Gare aux carats des pierres précieuses
Je prendrai l'âme cambrioleuse
La kallista, l'étoile polaire
C'est mon combat, mon univers

Je suis la rockeuse de diamants
Au fond du cuir noir de mon gant
Je suis la rockeuse de diam
Je suis la rockeuse de diam
Je suis la rockeuse de diamants

Diamond digger rocker girl

I sleep with them, I dream of them,
they are my Mecca1, my only extravagance.
When I see them with all their facets,
in their rose or navette cuts,
it sends shivers down my spine.
That's my soft spot, that's my credo.

I am the diamond digger2
clasped in the black leather of my glove.
I'm the diamond digger
I'm the diamond rocker
I'm the diamond digging rocker girl

I spend my life in diamond shops
that sparkle from Paris to Anvers.
necklaces like rivers3 on my chest,
but I look best when wearing solitaires.
I roll my stone between my gloved fingers4,
That's my spice, my element.

I am the diamond digger
clasped in the black leather of my glove.
I'm the diamond digger
I'm the diamond rocker
I'm the diamond digging rocker girl

Quarries of the Gongo, here I come!
Watch out, jewel digger in sight
Beware of the precious stones' carats5
The kallista6, the North Star
That's my struggle, my universe

I am the diamond digger
clasped in the black leather of my glove.
I'm the diamond digger
I'm the diamond rocker
I'm the diamond digging rocker girl


Translator's comments:
1. that sounds like a feminine version of "mon mec" (my guy/boyfriend)
2. "croqueuse"(muncher) and "rockeuse"(rocker [girl]) sound exactly the same except for the initial 'c'. A "croqueuse de diamant"(diamond muncher) is a "gold digger", but changing diamonds for gold would have required a bit too much adaptation. The pun does not extend beyond the catch phrase anyway, the song has noting to do with seduction for money.
3. diamond necklaces are called "rivers" in French
4. at least that's how I picture this strange metaphor...
5. whatever that might mean...
6. apart from the first name meaning "most beautiful", I have no idea what she means by that

Breakbot - Baby I'm yours - 2010 - Electro
House / electro-funk

Album : By your side

Thibaut Jean-Marie Michel Berland (born October 5, 1981), known by his stage name Breakbot, is a French producer and a DJ who has been signed with Ed Banger Records since May 2009.

He studied at Supinfocom, a computer graphics university. He co-directed one short film Overtime with Oury Atlan and Damien Ferrié. The short won the Ottawa International Animation Festival award for "Best Graduate Film" in 2005 and the Internationales Trickfilmfestival Stuttgart "Young Animation Award" in 2006. Thibaut Berland also prepared advertisements and videos.

Breakbot is most recognized for his remixes. His reworkings of songs by artists including Röyksopp, Digitalism, and Chromeo are among his most popular. The music video of "Baby I'm Yours" featuring Irfane was directed by Irina Dakeva and became a summer hit MTV Pulse, France. The music video was nominated for "Best budget pop/dance/urban video" and "Best animation in a video" during the UK Music Video Awards on October 12, 2010.

In February 2016, he released his new album, Still Waters, produced with his acolyte Irfane Khan-Acito, and his track Star Tripper was included in Star Wars Headspace, a Star-Wars themed music album released by Disney.

Breakbot's position in popular culture is influenced by the similarities between "Baby I'm Yours" and 2012 chart hit "Treasure" by Bruno Mars. "Treasure" was re-registered in ASCAP with new writing credits, which included him and Irfane Khan-Acito, due to the similarities with the former song.



I thought I had it all together
But I was led astray
The day you walked away
You were the clock
That was ticking in my heart
Changed my state of mind
But love’s so hard to find
Your feelings change like the weather
Went from clear to grey
On that cloudy day
How can I go on
With that bomb in the palm
Love’s so hard to find
When someone’s on your mind
Listen baby
Your wish is my command
Baby won’t you understand
That your wish is my command
What can I do to make
My baby understand
Something tells me that I'm dreamin'
I can see us there
Waving unaware
Of problems that have a tendency to keep
Keep the truth confined
Far from our minds
You need someone you can believe in
This I do declare
Trust me I'll be there
The road that leads to heaven can be so steep
I will help you climb
Change your state of mind
Listen baby
Your wish is my command
Baby won't you understand
That your wish is my command
What can I do to make my baby understand
Your wish is my command
Baby won't you understand
That your wish is my command
I can see us there
Waving unaware
This I do declare
Trust me I'll be there
I can see us there
Waving unaware
This I do declare
Trust me I'll be there
I can see us there
Waving unaware
This I do declare
Trust me I'll be there
Listen baby
Your wish is my command
Baby won't you understand
That your wish is my command
What can I do to make my baby understand
Follow me into, into my sleep
Baby I'm yours, I'm yours to keep
You've got the magic that entered my heart and my mind
Your wish is my command
Baby won't you understand
Your wish is my command
Baby won't you understand
Your wish is my command
Baby won't you understand
Your wish is my command
Baby won't you understand

Be sure to have these in mind for the Acclaimed Eurovision game I’m trying to start up! France, Switzerland, and Belgium are all in it! (The full rules and idea are in the thread - I know you’ve covered at least two French Eurovision songs, but those can be disregarded)

Chris O'Hara - Sur les coussins de la discothèque - 1979
Funk / Soul

Christiane Raymonde Maldant Nayrol
I found nothing about her.





Sur les coussins
de la discothèque
Dans ma fumée
De ma cigarette
Je pense à ma vie
Je pense à ma vie
Et ce qui l'en reste

Tout était pourtant si beau
Le jour où je t'ai connu
Le sable fin était si chaud
Sous nos corps à moitié nus

Que reste t'il
De tout cela ?
Un souvenir
Et nos corps las

J'espère un je ne sais quoi
Dans le Whiskey
Que je bois !

...drunk...

Ah !
Fiche-moi la paix barman
Tu comprends, j'pense encore
Alors soit gentleman
et donne moi à boire encore

Quand je serai complètement noire
Je ne verrai plus mon désespoir

Alors, tu l'apportes ce verre ?
Tant que je suis encore d'équerre

Oooooohhhhyeah

On the Cushions at the Club
On the cushions
At the club
In the smoke
Of my cigarette
I'm thinking about my life
I'm thinking about my life
And what is left of it

Still, everything was so nice
The day that I met you
The fine sand was so warm
Underneath our half-naked bodies

What will remain
Of all this?
A memory
And our tired bodies

I hope to find a special something
In the whiskey
That I'm drinking!

...drunk...

Ah!
Leave me alone, barman
Get it, I'm still thinking
So be a gentleman
And give me some more to drink

When I'm totally drunk
I will no longer be aware of my desperation

So, are you gonna get me that glass?
As long as I can still think straight

Oooooohhhhyeah

Leïla Huissoud - Le bistrot - 2014
Chanson



J'ai inventé un bistrot tout près de chez moi
Pour les poètes, pour les poivrots et pourquoi pas.
Je me suis glissée dans ce bistrot à petits pas
Pour voyager dans leurs histoires qu'on ne croit pas.

Y'avait trop de vent sur la mer
Et trop de vagues dans leur verre
Et ils se sont noyés parfois.

Mais sur la terre ils me parlaient
De toutes les femmes qu'ils aimaient
Et de toutes celles qui ne les aimaient pas
Mais qui quand même la nuit tombée
Dans un bordel au cabaret
Se donnaient entre leurs bras.

Et derrière votre regard sévère
Qui donne l'impression d'un homme fier
Y'a plus que quelques rêves brisés
Par la société comme vous dites
Et par ces vieux cons hypocrites
À qui vous ne voulez pas ressembler.

Vous préférez de loin votre histoire Monsieur
Et votre réputation de vieux fou
Vous préférez de loin votre bar Monsieur
Et plutôt que con mieux vaut être saoul.

Sur votre tabouret de bar
Vous êtes bien là le pilier
Dans toutes ces belles histoires.

Et sur votre tabouret de bar
Est-ce votre vie que vous contez
Où celle que vous vouliez avoir.

Comme j'aimerais vous voir sourire Monsieur
Comme j'aimerais vous voir sourire Monsieur

Alors vous parlez de la mort
Comme si vous n'en aviez pas peur
Et là ironie du sort viennent vos pleurs.

Et effondré sur votre comptoir Monsieur
Bizarrement j'aime votre désespoir
Et effondré sur votre comptoir Monsieur
C'est déjà la fin de vos mémoires.

J'ai inventé un bistrot tout près de chez moi
Pour ce poète, pour ce poivrot et pourquoi pas
Je me suis glissée dans ce bistrot à petits pas
Pour voyager dans son histoire qu'on ne croit pas.

Y'avait trop de vent sur la mer
Et trop de vagues dans son verre
Et il s'est noyé cette fois.

The bar

I made up a bar right next to my place
for the poets, for the drunks, and why not?
I tiptoed through the door and took a trip
into their stories no one believes in.

There was too much wind at sea
and too many waves in their glasses,
and sometimes they drowned.

But when ashore they told me about
all the women they loved,
and all those who did not love them,
but even so, after dark,
in a brothel at the inn
surrendered themselves in their arms.

And behind your stern gaze
that makes you look like a proud man,
only a few broken dreams remain,
ruined by the system1, as you put it,
and by these self-righteous old farts,
the kind you don't want to look like.

You like your story much better, Mister
and your reputation of old loony.
You like your bar much better, Mister
and you'd rather be a drunk than a jerk.

Stuck on your bar stool
you are indeed holding2
all these beautiful stories together.

Stuck on your bar stool,
is it your life you're telling,
or the one you wish you had?

I'd like so much to see you smile, Mister
I'd like so much to see you smile, Mister

And then you speak of death
as if you weren't afraid of it, and then,
how ironic, your tears break out.

And as you lie prostrate on your counter, Mister,
strangely enough I like your despair.
And as you lie prostrate on your counter, Mister,
your memories already come to an end.

I made up a bar right next to my place
for this poet, for this drunk, and why not?
I tiptoed through the door, to take a trip
into his story no one believes in.

There was too much wind at sea
and too many waves in his glass,
and this time he drowned.


1. lit. "society", meant as (adverse) social circumstances
2. unfortunately I could not render this rather nice pun on "pilier" which both means "regular" in a derogative way (a drunk spending all his time in bars) and "cornerstone" (the pillar that holds something together)

Louis Lynel - Nuit de Chine - 1922
Chanson

Wikipédia (Google Translate)
Louis Lynel was born August 26, 1887 in Bastia and studied at the conservatory in Marseille where he and his parents came to live.

He began his singing career in 1910 in Parisian concert-cafés such as Casino Saint-Martin or L'Eldorado. It was at Casino Saint-Martin that he met Charlus who was then chief of the recording of the coffee-concert for the firm Pathé. In view of the audience's reactions, Charlus invites Lynel to audition Émile Pathé who decides to make him record a dozen songs. Discs selling well, others follow; some very popular songs like Nuits de Chine, which he created in 1922, or In the Gardens of the Alhambra of Benech and Dumont even reach sales records.

Louis Lynel has also performed in the provinces, North Africa and Belgium. From 1939 to 1943, he regularly plays on the radio. He bids farewell to the scene around 1947 and died on April 9, 1967 in Gourdon.

Song written and composed in 1922 by Ernest Dumont and Ferdinand-Louis Bénech



Quand le Soleil descend à l'horizon,
A Saïgon.
Les Élégantes s'apprêtent et s'en vont
De leurs maisons.
A petits pas, à petits cris,
Au milieu des jardins fleuris,
Où volent les oiseaux jolis
Du paradis.
Tendrement enlacés,
Se grisant de baisers,
Les amants deux par deux,
Cherchent les coins ombreux.

Nuits de Chine,
Nuits câlines,
Nuits d'amour !
Nuits d'ivresses,
De tendresses,
Où l'on croit rêver jusqu'au lever du jour.
Nuits de Chine,
Nuits câlines,
Nuits d'amour !

Sur la Rivière entendez-vous ces chants
Doux et troublants ?
Bateaux de fleurs où les couples en dansant
Font des serments !
Pays de Rêve où l'Étranger
Cherchant l'oubli de son passé,
Dans un sourire a retrouvé
La joie d'aimer.
Éperdu, le danseur
Croit au songe menteur,
Pour un soir de bonheur
On y laisse son cœur...

Nuits de Chine,
Nuits câlines,
Nuits d'amour !
Nuits d'ivresses,
De tendresses,
Où l'on croit rêver jusqu'au lever du jour.
Nuits de Chine,
Nuits câlines,
Nuits d'amour !

Mousmée jolie dont mon cœur est épris
Je veux l'oubli.
Puisque de toi mon amour infini
Reste incompris.
L'opium endort les malheureux
Et les emporte jusqu'aux cieux
Dans un nuage merveilleux
De fumée bleue.
Dans le soir qui s'enfuit,
Loin des chants, loin du bruit,
Sur la natte, endormi,
Le Beau Rêve a repris.

Nuits de Chine,
Nuits câlines,
Nuits d'amour !
Nuits d'ivresses,
De tendresses,
Où l'on croit rêver jusqu'au lever du jour.
Nuits de Chine,
Nuits câlines,
Nuits d'amour !

China night

As the sun goes down on the horizon
in Saigon
the beauties dress up and go out
of their houses,
tiptoing, giggling
in blooming gardens
where pretty birds
of paradise fly.
Tenderly embraced,
intoxicated with kisses,
the loving couples
seek shaded corners.

China nights
Cuddly nights
Loving nights!
Nights of intoxication,
of tenderness
that seem like a dream until daybreak.
China nights
Cuddly nights
Loving nights!

Do you hear on the river
these sweet and seductive songs?
Flower boats where loving couples
make promises as they dance!
A dreamland where the stranger
who sought to forget the past
found again in a smile
the joy of being in love.
Passionate, the dancer
believes the untruthful dream
for a night of happiness.
One can lose one's heart there...

China nights
Cuddly nights
Loving nights!
Nights of intoxication,
of tenderness
that seem like a dream until daybreak.
China nights
Cuddly nights
Loving nights!

Pretty musume1 who enthralled my earth,
I seek oblivion
since my infinite love for you
remains unrequited.
Opium sends the unhappy ones off to sleep
and carries them to heavens
in a wondeful puff
of blue smoke.
In the fleeing night,
away from songs and din,
asleep on the mat,
the beautiful dream began again.

China nights
Cuddly nights
Loving nights!
Nights of intoxication,
of tenderness
that seem like a dream until daybreak.
China nights
Cuddly nights
Loving nights!

Philippe Guerre - Marche Blues - 1979 - Electro
Electronique / Experimental

Album: Cristal (RYM: 3.62/5)

RYM
Late-70's performer, composer and producer of Electronic Music.Propably the same Phillipe Guerre who made a single and an album in 1973 along with one Michel Guerre (rising questions about a relationship between the two) in a French Chanson style.His first album ''Cristal'' was completely performed by himself and released as a private press in 1979.His only equipment were a monophonic Teisco 100F synthesizer and an Elka Rhapsody string synthesizer.

The tracks flow constantly with parallel work on double synths with the Teisco keyboard providing the cosmic lines and the Elka Rhapsody sounding often like a harsichord.The mood is fairly melancholic and depressive with occasional romantic touches and some bits from Medieval and Baroque periods in the process.The atmosphere is pretty grandiose as expected, even if the tracks sound pretty similar to each other.There are still some piano tunes to be heard in a couple of tracks, but the album is heavily relying on its eerie, dark enviroment, which often flirts with Soundtrack/Horror Music.

Michel Cloup (Duo) - Le cercle parfait - 2011
Indie rock / Post-rock

Album: Notre silence (RYM: 3.59/5)

Le bureau export
A former member of indie band Diagologum, Michel Cloup has been on the French rock scene since the early 90’s. Now writing and performing under the name the Michel Cloup Duo, the Toulouse-based singer/guitarist has teamed up with drummer Julien Rufie to produce heavy rock with a sensitive side, all sung entirely in French. The pair have been performing songs off their latest studio album ‘Ici et là-bas’ (2016) in concerts throughout France, Belgium, and Spain.



Nous avons tracé un cercle au centre de la ville
Au centre de la carte
Nous sommes sortis et nous avons marché
Toute la journée toute la nuit

Nous avons tracé un cercle et sommes revenus
à tous les endroits où nous avons vécu
Et ce voyage m'a paru aussi long et dense
Que la petite moitié de ma petite existence

Il faut dire ces derniers mois
J'ai comme un poids
Qui ralenti quelque peu
Le rythme de mes pas

Jusqu'au bout du tracé
Jusqu'au bout du cercle parfait X2

Nous avons traîné comme nous le faisions
Sans but réel en suivant un parcours bien précis
Nous avons filé droit sans perdre notre itinéraire
Plusieurs fois tu t'es accrochée à mon bras
Nous avons redécouvert ces rues ces quartiers
Correspondant à des périodes à des années
Nous avons revisité
Ce qui nous avait appartenu
Détaillant ce qui avait été modifié
Nous étions d'abord émus
Puis au fur et à mesure des heures et des lieux
Nous avons réalisé
Nous étions devenus étrangers

Jusqu'au bout du tracé
Jusqu'au bout du cercle parfait

Tu as dit "continuons par là"
Quand le soleil à commencé à percer les nuages
Et à brûler ma nuque
Nous sommes arrivés jusqu'au bout du tracé
Jusqu'au bout du cercle parfait
Tu as dit : "c'est ici"
Nous nous sommes assis
J'étais épuisé je n'ai pas réfléchi
J'ai regardé autour de moi
J'ai dit "oui"
J'ai posé ma tête contre ton épaule
Nous nous sommes assis
Et je n'ai rien ressenti d'autre
Qu'un soulagement qu'un apaisement
Il faut dire ces derniers mois
J'ai comme un poids
Qui ralenti quelque peu
Le rythme de mes pas
Nous nous sommes assis
Je me suis endormi
Contre toi

Jusqu'au bout du tracé
Jusqu'au bout du cercle parfait

Nous nous sommes assis
Je me suis endormi
Contre toi

Brigitte - A bouche que veux-tu - 2014
Indie Pop / Nouvelle chanson

Album: A bouche que veux-tu (RYM: 3,26/5)


Artist Biography by Jon O'Brien (Allmusic)
A throwback to the flower power era, '60s revivalists Brigitte are a French female duo combining lounge-pop, retro-folk, and French cabaret to produce an authentic hippie-chic sound. Named in honor of several of the decade's icons (Bardot, Fontaine, Lahaie), Aurélie Maggiori, who had previously recorded under the name of Mayane Delem, and Sylvie Hoarau, formerly the lead vocalist in Parisian rock band Vendetta, formed their duo in 2008.
After recording a cover version of Michel Jonasz's "Les Vacances au Bord de la Mer" for Delem's former bandmate Benoit Petre's film Thelma Louise et Chantal, the pair signed to Wagram Records and released an EP, Battez-Vous, which featured a unique take on Suprême NTM's '90s hip-hop anthem "Ma Benz."
Co-written with Franco-Lebanese singer/songwriter Camille Bazbaz and French troubadour Albin de la Simone, their debut album, Et Vous, Tu M'aimes?, was released in 2011. It peaked inside the Top 20 in France, and charted there for nearly two years while the duo toured nationally and abroad, eventually logging more than 200 concert dates. Brigitte's second album, À Bouche Que Veux-Tu (Mouth of Plenty), appeared in late 2014, released on the duo's own B. Records label and featuring co-production by Brigitte and Marlon B (who assisted on the first album).



Viens ce jour, ma peau ne sait plus attendre.
Viens cours, des papillons au creux du ventre.
Viens me porter secours, je brûle de nous imaginer.
Le vent et les chansons d’amour en sucre
me font toujours autant d’effet.
J’ai peur de nous, j’ai pas envie de résister.
J’ai peur de nous, la raison n’est pas notre alliée.
Tour à tour, on se tourne autour, sans jamais avoir basculé.
Les jeux interdits, ton humour abstrait
me font toujours autant d’effet.

Tu le sais, une évidence de tous les diables.

L’extase, un incendie qui nous tue.
C’est merveilleux, tu es foutu.

Allez, viens.
Allez, viens. (×3)

Le jour se lève, la fièvre prend fin,
m’aimeras-tu demain ?
Et mes lèvres posées sur tes mains,
m’aimeras-tu demain ?

Eagerly

Come today, my skin can wait no longer
Come, run, butterflies in my stomach
come and bring me help, I get hot thinking of us,
The wind and sugared love songs
Always have that effect on me.
I'm afraid of us, I don't want to resist,
I'm afraid of us, reason isn't on our side,
In turn, we turn around without ever having tripped up,
The forbidden games and your abstract humour
Always have that effect on me.

I know it, giving in is inevitable,
Because in this paradise, to eagerly offer yourself
Ecstasy, the flame which kills us,
It's marvellous, you're really done for1.

Parararpapara parararpapara
Parararpapara parararpapara
Parararpapara parararpapara

Go on, come
Go on, come (3x)

Day breaks, the fever comes to an end,
Will you love me tomorrow?
And my lips placed on your hands
Will you love me tomorrow?

Johnny Hallyday - Quelque chose de Tennessee - 1985
Rock / Chanson

Wikipédia:
Johnny Hallyday (French pronunciation: ​[dʒɔ.ni a.li.dɛ], 15 June 1943 – 5 December 2017), stage name of Jean-Philippe Smet, was a French singer and actor. He was married for 15 years to popular Bulgarian-French singer Sylvie Vartan and the two were considered a "golden couple" for 20 years. Hallyday completed 181 tours, had 18 platinum albums, and sold more than 110 million records worldwide, making him one of the world's best-selling artists of all time.

Hallyday remains largely unknown outside the Francophone world, thus earning the nickname "the biggest rock star you've never heard of" in English-speaking countries.


Early life
Hallyday's father, Léon Smet (1908–1989), was Belgian; his mother, Huguette Clerc (1920–2007), was French. Born in Paris, Hallyday took his stage name from his aunt Desta's husband and dance partner Lee Hallyday, a pseudonym for Lee Ketcham, an expatriate Oklahoman, performer, and MC at the Café de Paris where Johnny began his singing career. Johnny was raised by Desta and Lee from a very young age, with Lee being his first manager. Johnny was always very loyal to Lee and secured him a permanent job as a producer and A&R man with his label, Philips Records until Lee's retirement and relocation back to Oklahoma.

Career
Influenced by Elvis Presley and the 1950s rock n' roll revolution, Hallyday became famous in the 1960s for singing Rock 'n' Roll in French. His debut single, "Laisse les filles" was released on the Vogue label in March 1960. His first album, Hello Johnny, was released in 1960. In 1961 his cover of "Let's Twist Again" sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. It topped almost every European chart, although the track did not appear in the UK Singles Chart. He appeared on the American The Ed Sullivan Show with American singing star Connie Francis in a show that was taped at the Moulin Rouge nightclub in Paris. He also staged many appearances in the Paris Olympia under the management of the late Bruno Coquatrix. For their first concert, The Jimi Hendrix Experience opened for Johnny Hallyday in Évreux on 13 October 1966. Black-and-white footage, also from October 1966, exists of Hallyday partying with Hendrix, his manager Chas Chandler and others. There also is a widely published monochrome photograph of Hallyday walking somewhere in Paris in late May 1966 with Bob Dylan.


Hallyday in 1965
At the end of the 1960s, Hallyday made a string of albums with Mick Jones and Tommy Brown as musical directors, and Big Jim Sullivan, Bobby Graham and Jimmy Page as session musicians. These are Jeune Homme, Rivière... Ouvre ton Lit (a.k.a. Je suis né dans la rue) and Vie. On Je suis né dans la rue, Hallyday also hired both Peter Frampton and the Small Faces. Amongst their contributions are the songs Amen (Bang Bang), Reclamation (News Report), and Regarde Pour Moi (What You Will), which are variations of Small Faces and Humble Pie (Frampton's band) songs—tracks and they all play on the album. Often forgotten is Hallyday's non-LP single and EP track Que Je T'aime from the same sessions. By 1969 alone, his sales of records exceeded twelve million.

One of Hallyday's later concerts, 100% Johnny: Live à La Tour Eiffel in 2000, attracted an audience of 500,000 and 9.5 million television viewers (the show was broadcast live on French TV). In December 2005, Hallyday had his third number-one single in France, "Mon Plus Beau Noël" (after "Tous ensemble" and "Marie"), dedicated to his adopted daughter Jade. Shortly before announcing his retirement from touring, he released a blues-flavored album, Le Cœur d'un homme, on 12 November 2007. The album hit No. 1 in both France and French-speaking Belgium. In addition to the lead single "Always", Le Cœur d'un homme features "T'aimer si mal", a duet with bluesman Taj Mahal and "I Am the Blues", an English-language song written for Hallyday by U2's lead singer Bono. His next album, Ça ne finira jamais, released in 2008, another No. 1 on the French album chart, and its lead single, "Ça n'finira jamais", also reached No. 1. In 2008 he recorded a series of acoustic songs with French musician Drexl Jonez. Hallyday's most recent album, also a No. 1 hit in France, is Tour 66: Stade de France 2009, a live set recorded at Stade de France during his farewell tour with appearances by Drexl Jonez on the guitar.

French movie producers Michèle and Laurent Pétin introduced Johnny Hallyday to Hong Kong film director Johnnie To. Hallyday was cast as the main role of To's Vengeance after meeting with the director in early 2008. The shooting began in November 2008 and concluded in February 2009.


On December 6, 2017, Hallyday died at age 74.



>Introduction :
À vous autres, hommes faibles et merveilleux
Qui mettez tant de grâce à vous retirer du jeu
Il faut qu'une main posée sur votre épaule
Vous pousse vers la vie, cette main tendre et légère.

On a tous quelque chose en nous de Tennessee
Cette volonté de prolonger la nuit
Ce désir fou de vivre une autre vie
Ce rêve en nous avec ses mots à lui

Quelque chose de Tennessee
Cette force qui nous pousse vers l'infini
Y a peu d'amour avec tellement d'envie
Si peu d'amour avec tellement de bruit
Quelque chose en nous de Tennessee

Ainsi vivait Tennessee
Le cœur en fièvre et le corps démoli
Avec cette formidable envie de vie
Ce rêve en nous c'était son cri à lui
Quelque chose de Tennessee

Comme une étoile qui s'éteint dans la nuit
À l'heure où d'autres s'aiment à la folie
Sans un éclat de voix et sans un bruit
Sans un seul amour, sans un seul ami
Ainsi disparut Tennessee

À certaines heures de la nuit
Quand le cœur de la ville s'est endormi
Il flotte un sentiment comme une envie
Ce rêve en nous avec ses mots à lui
Quelque chose de Tennessee

Quelque chose de Tennessee
Oh oui Tennessee
Y a quelque chose en nous de Tennessee

Something of Tennessee

"To you other weak men and wonderful
Who put so much grace to withdraw from the game
There must be a hand on your shoulder
Pushes you towards life, this soft and light hand "

We all have something in us of Tennessee
This desire prolong the night
This crazy desire to live another life
This dream in us with his own words

Something of Tennessee
This strength which pushes us towards the infinity
There's few love with so much envy
So few love with so much noise
something in us Tennessee

Thus lived Tennessee
The heart in fever and a demolished body
With this tremendous desire of living
This dream in us it was his cry at Him
Something of Tennessee

Like a star which turns off into the night
A time when others are madly in love
Without a burst of voice and without a sound
Without a single love, without a single friend
Thus disappeared Tennessee

At certain hours of the night
When the heart of the city is asleep
It floats feeling like a desire
This dream in us with its words at him
Something of Tennessee

Something of Tennessee
Oh yeah Tennessee
There's something in us of Tennessee

France Gall - Ella, elle l'a - 1987
Yé-yé, French Pop, Schlager, Chanson, Baroque Pop, Psychedelic Pop

Album: Babacar (RYM: 3.35/5)

Artist Biography by Stewart Mason (Allmusic)
Although she was best known as the pretty, perky teenager who won the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest with her hit "Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son," French pop singer France Gall had a much longer and more varied career than that, releasing solid records for decades. Although only a cult figure in most of the rest of the world, Gall was a major star and beloved figure in her native country.

Born Isabelle Gall in Paris on October 9, 1947, Gall was the daughter of French performer and producer Roger Gall, who had written songs for Édith Piaf and Charles Aznavour. In 1962, at the age of 15, Gall was ushered into the studio by her father to record her debut EP, Ne Sois Pas Si Bete. The four-track EP (the standard in French pop music at the time, and the format of most of her releases for the rest of the decade) was an enormous hit, selling 200,000 copies in France thanks both to the irresistible title track and the absolutely stunning cover photo. Gall released a series of similarly successful pop hits for the next several years, peaking with winning the aforementioned Eurovision Song Contest in 1965. But although many dismissed Gall as a Francophone Lesley Gore, making fluffy and ultra-commercial pop hits with little substance, Gall's hits from this era stand up far better than most. Only Françoise Hardy was consistently making records up to these standards during this era. Though Gall's high, breathy voice was admittedly somewhat limited, she made the most of it. Even dopey hits like "Sacre Charlemagne," a duet with a pair of puppets who were the stars of a children's show on French TV, have an infectious, zesty charm; meatier tunes, like the sultry jazz-tinged ballad "Pense a Moi" and the brilliant rocker "Laisse Tomber les Filles," were as good as any single produced in the U.S. or Great Britain at the time.

In 1966, Gall's public persona shifted into a more mature phase, both musically and personally. The change came with that year's controversial hit "Les Sucettes." Though on the surface the Serge Gainsbourg-penned tune was a pretty little song about a young girl and her lollipop, the unmistakable subtext of the sly lyrics meant that the not-yet-18-year-old Gall was singing approvingly (and, she later claimed, completely unknowingly) about oral sex. Les Sucettes and its follow-up, Baby Pop, are among Gall's finest, musically richer and more varied than her early hits, but every bit as catchy. (During this period of her career, Gall was signed not only to the French division of Philips, but to the German branch of the company, and also released several German-language EPs and albums, mixing translations of her Francophone hits and all-new material.) The psychedelic era found Gall, under Gainsbourg's guidance, singing increasingly strange songs, like "Teenie Weenie Boppie" (a bizarre tune about a deadly LSD trip that somehow involves Mick Jagger) set to some of Gainsbourg's most out-there arrangements. The excellent 1968 is Gall's best album from this period, with "Teenie Weenie Boppie," the trippy "Nefertiti," and the slinky, jazzy "Bebe Requin," perhaps Gall's sexiest single ever.

Like other stars of the '60s yé-yé scene, Gall's career took a downturn in the early '70s. No longer a teenager, but without a new persona to redefine herself (and without the help of Gainsbourg, whose time was taken by his own albums and those of his wife, Jane Birkin), Gall floundered both commercially and artistically. A label change from Philips to BASF in 1972 didn't help matters, but in 1974 Gall met and married songwriter/producer Michel Berger. Berger took over his wife's career starting with 1975's France Gall and reestablished her popularity throughout Europe. Berger's middle-of-the-road soft rock style (think late-era Elton John, with whom Gall recorded a duet, "Les Aveux," in 1980) was slickly commercial and, for the most part, less inspired than Gall's '60s work, but although her material was by and large weaker, Gall became a much stronger and more technically adept singer during this era. Albums like 1987's Babacar, 1984's Débranche!, and 1988's live Tour de France cannot be recommended to those completely averse to mellow "lite" rock, but they have their charms.

Gall's life took a tragic turn in the '90s; Berger died of a heart attack at the age of 46 in 1992, and their daughter Pauline died of cystic fibrosis at the age of 19 in 1997. Gall announced her retirement after Berger's death, but after reconsidering, she restarted her career with 1996's France, a tender tribute to her partner and mentor. That same year, a new generation of listeners began discovering her work when Heavenly covered her Serge Gainsbourg-penned hit "Nous Ne Sommes Pas des Anges" on Operation Heavenly. France Gall died of cancer on January 7, 2018 at the age of 70.

The song:
(wikipédia)

"Ella, elle l'a" (French for "Ella, She Has It") is a single released by French singer France Gall. It was released as a single from her album Babacar, on 24 August 1987, and became a hit across Europe, the Americas (especially in Quebec and the Southern Cone) and Asia (especially in Japan)

Written by Michel Berger, the song is basically a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, but also a protest against racism and an anthem to personal empowerment. Musically, "it swings between sheared rhythms of the bass and flashed brass". The song is also available on the CD maxi for Évidemment, released on March 1988. In addition, a live version from her concert album Le Tour de France was realased in November that year.

The song had great success between 1987 and 1988, reaching number one in Austria and Germany in the latter year; plus reaching the Top 10 in Sweden, Spain and Argentina. In France, the single was certified as silver disc by the SNEP, reaching #2. It was on the chart Top 50 during nineteen weeks, from October 24th 1987; and nine weeks on the Top 10. In addition, it won two Victoires de la Musique in both years. It was covered live by French singer Alizée at a TV show in 2002 and by Belgian singer Kate Ryan in a dance version in 2008.



C'est comme une gaieté
Comme un sourire
Quelque chose dans la voix
Qui parait nous dire "viens"
Qui nous fait sentir étrangement bien

C'est comme toute l'histoire
du peuple noir
Qui se balance
Entre l'amour et l'désespoir
Quelque chose qui danse en toi
Si tu l'as, tu l'as

Ella, elle l'a
Ce je n'sais quoi
Que d'autres n'ont pas
Qui nous met dans un drôle d’état
Ella, elle l'a
Ella, elle l'a
Ou-ou ou-ou ou-ou ou
Elle a, ou-ou ou-ou ou-ou ou, cette drôle de voix
Elle a, ou-ou ou-ou ou-ou ou, cette drôle de joie
Ce don du ciel qui la rend belle

Ella, elle l'a
Ella, elle l'a
Elle a, ou-ou ou-ou ou-ou ou
Ella, elle l'a
Elle a, ou-ou ou-ou ou-ou ou

Elle a ce tout petit supplément d’âme
Cet indéfinissable charme
Cette petite flamme

Tape sur des tonneaux
Sur des pianos
Sur tout ce que dieu peut te mettre entre les mains
Montre ton rire ou ton chagrin
Mais que tu n'aies rien, que tu sois roi
Que tu cherches encore les pouvoirs qui dorment en toi
Tu vois ça ne s’achète pas
Quand tu l'as tu l'as

Ella, elle l'a
Ce je n'sais quoi
Que d'autres n'ont pas
Qui nous met dans un drôle d’état
Ella, elle l'a
Ella, elle l'a ...



Ella, She's Got It

It’s like a cheerful feeling,
Like a smile.
Something in the voice
That seems to tell us ‘come!’,
That makes us feel strangely good.

It’s like the entire history
Of the black people
That sways
Between love and despair.
Something that dances within you,
If you’ve got it, you’ve got it!

Ella1, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That je ne sais quoi
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That others don’t have,
That puts us in a funny state.

Ella, she’s got it
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That funny voice
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That funny joy,
That gift from heaven that makes her beautiful.

Ella, she’s got it
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)

She’s got a little more soul,
That indefinable charm,
That little flame.

Hit barrels,
Hit pianos,
Hit everything that God may put in your hands.
Show your laugh or your sorrow.
But whether you have nothing, or you’re a king,
Whether you’re still looking for the powers that lie dormant within you.
You see, it can’t be bought,
When you’ve got it, you’ve got it!

Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That je ne sais quoi
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That others don’t have,
That puts us in a funny state.

Ella, she’s got it
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
Ella, she’s got it
Ella, she’s got it

Ella
Ella, she’s got it

Ella, she’s got it
Ella
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That je ne sais quoi
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That others don’t have,
That puts us in a funny state.

Ella, she’s got it
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That funny voice
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
That funny joy
That gift from heaven that makes her beautiful.

Ella, she’s got it
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)
Ella, she’s got it
(Ella oohoohooh, oohoohooh)

Ofenbach is a French DJ duo, consisting of Dorian Lo and César de Rummel, based in Paris. They are best known for their gold-certified song "Be Mine" which charted on the Billboard Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart at 35th.

They are also known for remixing songs from Bob Sinclar, Hyphen Hyphen, and James Bay.

The duo met at school at an early age. When they were 13 years old, Lo's father told them that one of the best experiences of his life was being part of a band. This inspired them to form their first musical group in which they performed rock music. They cite some of their influences as Supertramp, The Rolling Stones, and Led Zeppelin.

The name Ofenbach was selected after the duo became inspired by French composer Jacques Offenbach, whose score was found at their home.

Ofenbach released their single "Be Mine" alongside an official remix package via Warner Music France/Big Beat, which featured remixes from Agrume, Antiyu, and Stone Van Brooken. The song peaked at number one in Russia and Poland.

Yan Tregger - Sun Adoration - 1971
Funk / Disco / Library music

fonkadelica (Google translate)
In the '70s, Yan Tregger, trumpet musician, does not predestinate to become one of the most emblematic artists of sound illustration. However, today, his albums are highly coveted by "diggers" around the world who do not hesitate to shell out significant sums to afford the Holy Grail.

Yan Tregger began in this environment in the late '60s. Noticed after a few recordings for credits of television shows, it is proposed to compose his first album. It is a small label (Marignan), the design of the cover is sketchy and the strange titles ...
Thanks to this first test, his qualities and his professionalism convinced other illustrious professionals who allowed him to continue in this way for almost a decade. During this period, the work was not lacking but the glory, it was not on the program. What does it matter! As time went by, Y. Tregger, composer, arranger and conductor, had more and more musical bands. No limits seemed to be fixed which made his job much more attractive.

Sheila B. Devotion - Spacer - 1979
Disco

Album: King Of The World (RYM: 3.46/5)

Wikipédia:

Sheila and B. Devotion (also credited as Sheila B. Devotion, Sheila and the Black Devotion or S.B. Devotion) was a disco group fronted by French singer Sheila between 1977 and 1980. This formation briefly reached popularity in Europe and to a lesser extent in the US club circuit during the disco era. The group recorded two albums (Love Me Baby and King of the World) before dissolving in 1980 when Sheila returned to her solo career.

Before the group's formation, Sheila (born Annie Chancel in Créteil, France on August 16, 1945) scored numerous hits in her homeland during the 1960s and the 1970s. Among her chart toppers were "L'École est Finie" (1963), "Vous les Copains" (the French cover version of Manfred Mann's "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" in 1964), "'Petite Fille de Français Moyens" (1968) and "Les Rois Mages" (the cover of "Tweedle Dee Tweedle Dum" originally performed by Middle of the Road in 1971). Her success helped her producer Claude Carrere to launch his label Carrere Records. The Yé-yé artist was initially presented as a girl next door. In 1977, she completely changed her public image when Sheila & B Devotion was formed. She attempted to convey a more mature style in her music. Three American back-up singers/dancers (Dany Mac Farlane, Freddy Stracham and Arthur Wilkins) known as B. Devotion were hired to accompany her. She updated her bubblegum repertoire by performing disco tracks sung in English.

Because Carrere did not want to shock Sheila's public and the French media, the debut single of the group ("Love Me Baby") was released anonymously in May 1977 in France. The first pressings of the record mentioned the obscure name of S.B Devotion. The song was a radio and club hit. The identity of the group was rapidly revealed and the quartet was officially named Sheila B. Devotion. "Love Me Baby" became a mainstream Top 10 hit in Europe. The follow-up single was a disco version of "Singin' in the Rain" and was more successful. In early 1978, it was licensed to Casablanca Records to be released in the United States where it became a club hit.

The group name was altered in some markets to "Sheila & B. Devotion", while in others the name Sheila B. Devotion was maintained. Essentially, the US market knew the act as "Sheila & B. Devotion", while Canada, Australia, the UK, Ireland and the European markets stuck with the name Sheila B. Devotion. In 1979, the name was officially changed to Sheila & B. Devotion across all markets internationally. In the meantime, the Love Me Baby album (featuring the two above-mentioned hits) came out. The group promoted their records on the major European TV shows (Musikladen, Disco and Top of the Pops).

Sheila & B. Devotion scored other songs on the charts including "I Don't Need A Doctor", "Hôtel De La Plage", "You Light My Fire" and "Seven Lonely Days."


Album (Wikipédia):
King of the World is a 1980 album by French disco act Sheila and B. Devotion. The album which was both written and produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of American R&B band Chic includes the hit "Spacer" which reached #18 on the UK charts in early 1980 and was a Top 10 hit in most of Europe, selling more than 5 million copies worldwide, and was twenty years later to be sampled by Swedish band Alcazar for their 2000 hit "Crying at the Discotheque" (#13 UK). The album displays some elements unusual in Chic productions, such as prominent guitar solos in place of the breakdowns that were normally a staple part of the Chic sound, and some unusual lyrical subject matter, such as the sci-fi themed "Spacer" and a humorous song about credit cards.

Jane et Julie - Notre homme à moi - 1972
Jazz-Funk, Easy Listening, Chanson

No information about them.



Hum lalala
Hum lalala

Il me coule entre les bras
Trompeur et long, subtil et froid
Comme un serpent
Et toi ?

Il tangue comme une arbre
Foudroyé par un orage
Au ciel d'été
Et toi ?

Ce n'est qu'un homme
Comme il y en a tant sur Terre
Il est panthère
Notre homme à moi
Il pousse des cris
D'oiseau captif entre nos mains
Jusqu'au matin
Hum lalala
Hum lalala

Il m'aime en dandinant
un peu comme un orang-outan en liberté
Et toi ?

Ses dents m'éclairent la nuit
Quand il mange avec appétit
Mes insomnies
Et toi ?

Ce n'est qu'un homme
Quand il n'y en aura plus sur terre
Que va-t-on faire ?
Notre homme à moi
On pousse des cris d'oiseau affamé
Sur son corps
Quand il s'endort
Hum lalala
Hum lalala

Je m'alanguis
En esquissant des mots très doux
Pour l'éveiller
Et toi ?

Je le caresse des yeux
Pour montrer qu'ils sont bien beaux
Qu'ils sont bleus
Et toi ?

Ce n'est qu'un homme
Nous sommes ses petits frères
Pour mieux lui plaire
Notre homme à moi
Et on tombe sur lui
Comme deux oiseaux qui n'ont plus d'ailes
Tombent du ciel

Hum lalala (ad lib)
