Arno - Les yeux de ma mère - 1995
Belgian / Chanson / Alternative rock

Album: À La Française (RYM: 3.79/5)


Artist Biography by Jason Ankeny (Allmusic)


With his whiskey-and-cigarettes vocals, blues-inspired arrangements, and acerbic lyrics, Arno regularly earned comparison to gutter poets like Serge Gainsbourg and Tom Waits. Born Arno Hintjens in Ostende, Belgium, on May 21, 1949, he first surfaced in a series of little-known R&B-influenced acts, including Freckle Face and Tjens-Couter. In 1977, Arno and longtime collaborator Paul Decouter co-founded TC Bland with Ferre Baelen and Rudy Cloet, and after a name change to TC Matic, the group emerged as one of the more successful European acts of the early '80s, scoring a series of hits including "Elle Adore le Noir" and "Putain Putain." After a 1985 tour in support of Simple Minds, TC Matic split and a year later Arno issued his self-titled solo debut, written almost entirely in English. With the 1988 follow-up Charlatan, he cemented his roguish persona but also exhibited a more sensitive side via his moving cover of the Jacques Brel classic "Le Bon Dieu." Upon relocating to Paris, Arno wrote and recorded his third LP, 1990's Ratata, headlined by the hit "Lonesome Zorro." He next joined the one-off Charles et les Lulus alongside Roland Van Campenhout and Adriano Cominotto, recording an eponymous album stuffed with blues classics penned by Willie Dixon and Sonny Boy Williamson. Arno traveled to Nashville to record his next solo effort, 1993's Idiots Savants; after another one-off collaboration, Arno et les Subrovnicks (featuring fellow TC Matic alum Cloet), he ventured into cinema, scoring the Marion Vernoux film Personne Ne M'aime.

After spending virtually the entirety of his career writing and singing in English, Arno embraced French for 1995's chart-topping Les Yeux de Ma Mere, which dabbled in genres spanning from jazz to tango. He then made his acting debut as a homosexual swimming instructor in Jan Bucquoy's Camping Cosmos, extending his hiatus from the studio by releasing a 1997 live LP, Arno (En Concert à la Française). Arno's next album, Give Me the Gift, was recorded in English and distributed exclusively in the U.S. market. The release generated little attention in the American marketplace and he returned to film, scoring Michel Piccoli's Alors Voilà and also accepting a co-starring role onscreen. Another pseudonymous blues set credited to Charles and the White Trash Blues preceded Arno's next proper solo effort, 1999's A Poil Commercial. An acoustic LP, Arno Charles Ernest, followed in 2002, highlighted by "Elisa," a duet with French pop legend Jane Birkin. With the 2005 follow-up, French Bazaar, he again recorded solely in French, and earned the Victoire de la Musique award for Best Pop-Rock Album for his efforts. Arno returned to film via 2006's Komma, the first in a series of big-screen projects including Ex-Drummer and J'ai Toujours Voulu Être un Gangster. He finally returned to music in the spring of 2007 with Jus de Box.



Ma mère elle a quelque chose
Quelque chose dangereuse
Quelque chose d'une allumeuse
Quelque chose d'une emmerdeuse

Elle a des yeux qui tuent
Mais j'aime ses mains sur mon corps
J'aime l'odeur au-dessous de ses bras
Oui je suis comme ça

Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière
Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière
L'amour je trouve ça toujours
Dans les yeux de ma mère
Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière

Ma mère elle m'écoute toujours
Quand je suis dans la merde
Elle sait quand je suis con et faible
Et quand je suis bourré comme une baleine
C'est elle qui sait que mes pieds puent
C'est elle qui sait comment j'suis nu
Mais quand je suis malade
Elle est la reine du suppositoire

Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière
Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière
L'amour je trouve ça toujours
Dans les yeux de ma mère
Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière

Ma mère a quelque chose
Quelque chose dangereuse
Quelque chose d'une allumeuse
Quelque chose d'une emmerdeuse

Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière
Dans les yeux de ma mère
Il y a toujours une lumière
Dans les yeux de ma mère.

My mother's eyes

My mother, she is somewhat,
somewhat dangerous,
somewhat of a tease,
somewhat of a pain

She has killing eyes
still I like her hands on my body
I like the smell in her armpits,
yep, that's how I am.

In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.
In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.
Love is something I always find
in my mother's eyes.
In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.

My mother, she always listens to me
when I'm up shit creek.
She knows when I'm being a jerk and a wimp,
and when I am knock-out loaded.
She's the one who knows my feet stink.
She's the one who knows how I look naked.
As when I get sick,
she's the queen of suppository

In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.
In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.
Love is something I always find
in my mother's eyes.
In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.

My mother, she is somewhat,
somewhat dangerous,
somewhat of a tease,
somewhat of a pain

In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.
In my mother's eyes
there is always a glimmer.
In my mother's eyes...

Dickens - Génocide - 1969
Psychedelic Rock

Album: Royal Incarnation (RYM: 3.51/5)

A RYM reviewer
Dickens featured the talents of drummer Serge Baumer, bass player Jean-Claude Bertin, former Moods singer André Chabloz, keyboardist Jacques Minary, and lead guitarist Jean-Claude Tissot.

Originally released in 1969 by the French President label, their one and only album "Dickens" showcased a largely original collection of tunes that's been widely labeled as a lost French psych classic. The band performed in both French and English, but be forewarned their English was limited with Chabloz sounding like he had learned the lyrics phonetically. It wasn't a big deal to me, but some folks will find his heavy accent a source of irritation. That said, these guys weren't half bad. They'd clearly had access to someone's extensive record collection, witness the myriad of garage and psych influences scattered across the LP, plus the fact they covered the US band Genesis single 'Angeline' (reappearing with the title 'Ange De Lube'). Guitarist Tissot didn't get a great deal of spotlight time, but he made the most of it and the Baumer - Bertin was never less than steady. Yes, there was some psych in these grooves (check out 'Genese' and 'Reve Et Fumee'), but exemplified by tracks like 'Cataclysme', 'I Wanna Love You ', and 'Ain't Got And That's Better' there was even more of a '60s US garage influence.




Whouuuuuhouuuu

Fruit de la douceur
Le soleil
Sèche les pleurs
De l'oiseau
Ivre de bonheur

Au matin
De la fleur
Haut et chaud
Fruit de la douceur

Il ??? affaire

Faire le croiseur (moui moui moui?????)
Il défit les astres
Aux lunes ???? face
Il ne voit pas
Le désastre

Faut faire sans haine..aaaaahhhh.

Non, n'écrasez pas la fleur
Il éclot,
Dans nos cœurs

Non, n'écrasez pas la fleur
Laissez laissez,
Sécher les pleurs.

[Couplet 1]
Je n'ai aucune peine, j'te nique ta race
Dans les veines je n'ai que de la glace
J'veux savoir c'que ça fait de prendre leur place
J'm'entraine à sourire devant ma glace
La capitale dans le barillet
Tout arrive de Colombie akhé
J'rappe sale tellement avarié
Que même ces putains de rats attrapent la diarrhée
J'encule Brandon et Dylan
Si ces pédés crament au napalm j'veux la palme
J'm'en bats les couilles de qui rend l'âme
J'trempe mes cookies dans tes larmes

[Refrain]
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo
Armés comme à l'époque du Clos
L'ange de la mort dans la peau
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo
Ton cadavre derrière quelques plots
Le sang est plus épais que l'eau
Armés comme à l'époque du Clos
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo

[Couplet 2]
Traqué mais pas domestiqué
Ma vocation : te braquer et t'voir me l'astiquer
J'te met en location t'es maqué, j'vais devoir te niquer
T'es en rotation, t'es claqué, faudra m'expliquer
Dans le calbut, du surplus de quelques barrettes
Transversale, but du tur-fu, j'te la mets en plein tête
Ta mère la sale pute, il est trop tard pour chahed
C'est pas parce que tu ne joues plus que le jeu s'arrête
Ça sent la sueur au labo, des Trackers sous le capot
Cent plombs dans tous les bracos
Viser en plein coeur tous ces raclos
3.2 v6, 6.6.6 #Iblis, j'suis un de ces nègres qui persistent, et les ténèbres s'éclaircissent

[Refrain]
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo
Armés comme à l'époque du Clos
L'ange de la mort dans la peau
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo
Ton cadavre derrière quelques plots
Le sang est plus épais que l'eau
Armés comme à l'époque du Clos
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo

[Couplet 3]
Y'a que les ficelles de tes strings qui t'soutiennent
J'te baise et les draps s'en souviennent
Gros bras pour que Kadiatou vienne
Me fasse un riz au gras ou un tiebou dien
La chambre est assez grande pour plusieurs chiennes
Le torse est assez large pour plusieurs chaînes
Dans le monde des Blancs, les billets sont mauves
Chez nous, l'animal dominant est un noir chauve
Quelques grammes par jour dans l'piff
Les Hommes mentent mais pas les chiffres
Le nom d'un mort tatoué sur la peau
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo

[Refrain]
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo
Armés comme à l'époque du Clos
L'ange de la mort dans la peau
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo
Ton cadavre derrière quelques plots
Le sang est plus épais que l'eau
Armés comme à l'époque du Clos
Les singes viennent de sortir du zoo

2.7.Z.E.R.O

[Verse 1]
I have no pain, I fuck your race
In the veins I have only ice
I want to know how is to take their place
I train myslef to smile in front of my mirror
The capital in the barrel
Everything happens in Colombia, Akhe
I rap dirty, so damaged
That even these fucking rats get diarrhea
I fuck Brandon and Dylan
If these fags burns with napalm, I want the palm
I don't give a fuck of who die
I dip my cookies in your tears

[Chorus]
The monkeys come out from the zoo
Armed like the time of Clos
The angel of death in the skin
The monkeys come out from the zoo
Your corpse behind some studs
Blood is thicker than water
Armed like the time of Clos
The monkeys come out from the zoo

[Verse 2]
Hunted but not domesticated
My vocation: Rob you and see you polish me
I put you in rent, you're fired, I'll have to fuck you
You're rotating, you're slammed, will must explain me
In pants, some strips of excess
Section, aim of the future, I put it right in your head
Your mother the dirty slut, it's too late for Chahed
It's not because you no longer play that the game stops
It smells sweat in the lab, under the hood of ETFs
Hundred weights in all bracos
Aiming at the heart all these faggots
3.2 v6 6.6.6 #Iblis, I am one of those niggas who persist, and the darkness lighten

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
There's only the twines of your strings that support you
I fuck you and the sheets remember it
Big arms for that Kadiatou come
Make me a fried rice or dien Tiebou
The bedroom is large enough for multiple bitches
The torso is large enough for multiple chains
In the white world, tickets are purple
For us, the dominant animal is a black bald
A few grams per day in the nose
Men lie but not numbers
The name of a death tattooed on the skin
The monkeys come out from the zoo

[Chorus]

2.7.Z.E.R.O

Paul Blamar - Moin çé on maléré - 1961
Guadeloupean / boléro-guajira

Moin çé Maléré: a magnificent slow song, a bolero-guajira, which almost resembles a reggae. A rhythmic chaloupée based on guitar and what seems to me to be a piano but must probably be tumba (?). Very beautiful voice of Paul Blamar, then arrival of brass, very poignant, on the chorus, which is followed by a harmonica solo. Cover notes: "The lament of a poor worker who, like so many others, dreams of happiness".

L'aube se lève sur Paris France
Je n'aurais connu que tes bras
Tes bras sont courts quand on y pense
Comme ils m'ont bercé ces bras là
Tes bras qui me semblaient immenses
Se la jouent petit bras

L'aube se brise sur Paris France
Je n'aurais connu que tes doigts
Tes doigts sont gourds quand on y pense
Comme ils m'ont parcouru ces doigts
Tes doigts en qui j'avais confiance
Me dégoûtent et voilà

C'était la nuit, pardonne moi
Quand c'est la nuit parfois j'y crois
C’était la nuit ma seule excuse
La nuit souvent m'abuse

L'aube se crashe sur Paris France
Je n'aurais connu que ta bouche
Ta bouche qui devrait faire silence
Plutôt que baver sur ma couche
Ta bouche ouverte comme une offense
La remplit mais farouche

C'était la nuit pardonne moi
Quand c'est la nuit parfois j'y crois
C’était la nuit ma seule excuse
La nuit souvent m'abuse

L'aube se meurt sur Paris France
Nous n'aurons connu que quoi donc
Nos corps comme des fantômes qui dansent
Nos corps à corps mais à quoi bon
Nos corps et puis quelle importance
Remets ton pantalon

C'était la nuit pardonne moi
Quand c'est la nuit parfois j'y crois
C'était la nuit ma seule excuse
La nuit souvent m'abuse

It was night time

Dawn breaks on Paris, France
In the end I'll have lost only your arms.
Your arms are short, when you think of it
They soothed me so well, these very arms.
Your arms, that seemed huge to me
can't even pull your own weight now1

Dawn shatters on Paris, France
I will have known nothing but your fingers
Your fingers are clumsy, when you think of it
They roamed over me so well, these fingers
Your fingers, that I trusted,
just disgust me now, that's all.

It was night time, I'm so sorry
During the night sometimes I'm confident
Night was my only excuse
Night often fools me

Dawn crashes on Paris, France
I will have known nothing but your mouth,
your mouth that should keep quiet
rather than dribbling on my bed.
Your mouth open like an affront
filling it2 frightens me

It was night time, I'm so sorry
During the night sometimes I'm confident
Night was my only excuse
Night often fools me

Dawn is dying on Paris, France
What will we have known, I wonder
Our bodies like dancing ghosts
Our bodies mating, what was the use?
Our bodies, what does it matter anyway?
Just put your trousers back on3

It was night time, I'm so sorry
During the night sometimes I'm confident
Night was my only excuse
Night often fools me

Translator comments:
1. "se la jouer petits bras" is idiomatic youngster slang, something like "not being able to pull your own weight"
2. i.e. filling his mouth with a kiss. The image is rather crude and pretty unusual
3. I quite like this line : )

Lio - Le Banana Split - 1979
Belgian / Pop / Bubblegum pop / synthwave

Album: Lio (RYM: 3.36/5)


Wikipédia:
Lio (born 17 June 1962) is a Belgian singer and actress who was a pop icon in France and Belgium during the 1980s.

Wanda Maria Ribeiro Furtado Tavares de Vasconcelos was born in Mangualde, Portugal. When her father was called up to fight in the Portuguese Army, the family moved to Mozambique. Her parents divorced and, in 1968, Wanda moved with her mother and new stepfather to Brussels, Belgium, where her sister, actress Helena Noguerra, was born. In her teens she was determined to become a singer, and she was encouraged by singer-songwriter Jacques Duvall (né Eric Verwilghem), a family friend. She took her stage name, Lio, from a character in the Barbarella comic books by Jean-Claude Forest.

In 1979, together with songwriter Jay Alanski, she and Duvall began working with Marc Moulin and Dan Lacksman from the electro-trio Telex. "Le banana split", which sold over 1 million copies, and "Amoureux solitaires", a song originally by punk rock band Stinky Toys. Both songs rose to the top of many pop charts in France, and Moulin and Lacksman also produced her self-titled first album. In 1982 the American music duo Ron and Russell Mael, of Sparks, worked with her on the album Suite Sixtine, on which some of her previous songs were translated into English. Suite Sixtine was compiled and art directed by Ralph Alfonso for Attic Records Canada, where it was originally released. Her second album, Amour toujours, was produced by Alain Chamfort and released in 1983. The same year, she first appeared on the screen in Chantal Akerman's film Golden Eighties, a lighthearted, humorous French pop musical about the people who work together in a Parisian shopping center. Lio plays a carefree hairdresser in the movie.

In 1985 she met record company executive and producer Michel Esteban, of ZE Records. She continued to have hit singles in Europe, including "Les brunes comptent pas pour des prunes", and travelled to Los Angeles with Esteban to record her next album Pop model. Several of the tracks were co-produced by John Cale, formerly of the Velvet Underground, and the album produced the hits "Fallait pas commencer", "Je casse tout ce que je touche", and "Chauffeur". In 1988, after she had given birth to a daughter with Esteban, she resumed her acting career, starring in Claude Lelouch's film Itinéraire d'un enfant gâté. The Lio-Esteban partnership produced another album, Can Can, recorded in Los Angeles and Rio de Janeiro. She also designed a fashion collection for the European department store chain Prisunic.

She appeared in three films in 1990 and 1991, Chambre à part, Sans un cri, and Après l'amour. Her 1991 album, Des fleurs pour un caméléon, was produced by Étienne Daho - she had already contributed vocals for one of Daho's earliest and biggest hits, "Week-End À Rome". Daho was given carte blanche in the studio because Lio was busy shooting a film ; however, when his work was over, he showed no interest in promoting the album with her, limiting the success of the album. Her next album, Wandatta, presenting a more mature approach in contrast with her previous image, and with a sleeve designed by Guy Peellaert, was released in 1995. However, it was relatively unsuccessful, and she withdrew for a time to live near Angoulême with her partner and children. In 1998, she recorded with Esteban in Cuba, and in 1999 she appeared in 50 performances of the French adaptation of Seven Brides For Seven Brothers, a musical staged at the Folies Bergère. She had two kids that year. She released the single Je suis comme je suis and the album Chante Prévert containing interpretations of the poems of Jacques Prévert, in 2000. After performing the songs on tour throughout France, Europe and North Africa, she released the live album Cœur de rubis in 2004. She also appeared in over 250 performances of the theater play Le bébé, an adaptation of a book by Marie Darrieussecq staged by Marc Goldberg.

Since 2008, Lio has been a judge on the French "pop idol" show Nouvelle Star. In 2009, she returned to music with the rock band Phantom. In 2011, she became a judge on The Voice Belgique.

As of 2012, several of Lio's songs (like her 1980 song "Sage Comme Une Image") have been rediscovered and used as samples in numerous songs by artists in the Nu-disco, House and EDM genres.


The song (Wikipédia):
"'Le Banana Split'" is the debut single by Belgian pop singer Lio. It was a very big hit when it was first released in 1979, selling 700,000 copies. It is considered today Lio's signature song.

"Le Banana Split" has double entendre lyrics about oral sex. In a 2012 Belgian radio interview in which Lio talked about her debut album, Jay Alanski, one of the co-writers of this song, said that Lio, who was sixteen by the time the single was released, was totally aware of the sexual theme of the song when she recorded it.
"Le Banana Split" was remixed in 1995 and re-released to promote Lio's greatest hits album "Peste Of!".

Moon Ray - Comanchero - 1984
Italo disco

Wikipédia:
Raggio Di Luna or Moon Ray (born Mandy Ligios in France in 1963) is an Italo disco singer, known for the song "Comanchero" (1984, Discotto S.A.S), which was a hit across Europe, reaching number 3 in West Germany, number 2 in Austria, number 4 in Switzerland and number 5 in France.



Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh
Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh
Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh
Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh

Oh can you see, he is the one
Day after day, he is riding in the sun
He's travelling through deserts all alone

I will bring the Comanchero his tomahawk
His lonesome walk, his lonesome walk
Who's in mind of Comanchero: a man of law
A pretty squaw, a pretty squaw

Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh
Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh

Where he goes, no one can tell
Will he be running along any longer
Or will he ever stop somewhere

I will bring the Comanchero his tomahawk
His lonesome walk, his lonesome walk
Who's in mind of Comanchero: a man of law
A pretty squaw, a pretty squaw

I will bring the Comanchero his tomahawk
His lonesome walk, his lonesome walk
Who's in mind of Comanchero: a man of law
A pretty squaw, a pretty squaw

Who will join the Comanchero where eagles fly
Where horses ride, where horses ride
Will the road take Comanchero to his tee-pee
Or to the sea, or to the sea

Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh
Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh
Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, Comanchero, oh

Michel Richard Delalande - Simphonies pour le Soupers du Roy - Concert de trompettes - 1703 - Classical
Baroque

Wikipédia:
Michel Richard Delalande [de Lalande] (15 December 1657 – 18 June 1726) was a French Baroque composer and organist who was in the service of King Louis XIV. He was one of the most important composers of grands motets. He also wrote orchestral suites known as Simphonies pour les Soupers du Roy and ballets. His works foreshadowed the cantatas of JS Bach and the Water Music and oratorios of Handel.

Born in Paris, he was a contemporary of Jean-Baptiste Lully and François Couperin. Delalande taught music to the daughters of Louis XIV of France, and was director of the French chapel royal from 1714 until his death at Versailles in 1726.

Delalande was arguably the greatest composer of French grands motets, a type of sacred work that was more pleasing to Louis XIV because of its pomp and grandeur, written for soloists, choir and comparatively large orchestra. According to tradition, Louis XIV organized a contest between composers, giving them the same sacred text and time to compose the musical setting. He alone was the judge. Delalande was one of four winners assigned to compose sacred music for each quarter of the year (the other composers being Coupillet, Collasse and Minoret). Delalande's was the most important quarter of the year because of the Christmas holiday. Later he had full responsibility for the church music for the complete year. At his death, since he left no mass of his own, the 1656 requiem of the Dukes of Lorraine by Charles d'Helfer was sung.

Delalande left many versions of his works. His earlier versions show adherence to French Baroque style, but the later revisions incorporate more Italian melismatic lines and greater attention to polyphonic counterpoint.

Also, at least four collections of his works exist, each displaying different looks at composer's work as viewed by the people who assembled each collection.

Scholarship of Delalande's work was for many years hindered because of inconsistencies in the spelling of his last name: de Lalande, Lalande, la Lande, de la Lande, and others. The family wrote the name as 'Delalande'. Finally, in 2006 the definitive "Thematic Catalogue of the Works of Michel-Richard de Lalande (1657-1726)" by noted British musicologist Lionel Sawkins came out which runs to 752 pages containing over 3,000 music examples and details of performing requirements and of all source materials, as well as with comprehensive indexes and thematic locators.

Pierre Dudan - Clopin-Clopant - 1947
Chanson / Musette / Swiss

Pierre Dudan (1916–1984) was a Russian-born Swiss actor and singer. He was born in Moscow to a Russian mother and a Swiss father.



Je suis né avec des yeux d'ange
Et des fossettes au creux des joues
J'ai perdu mes joues et mes langes
Et j'ai cassé tous mes joujoux
Je m'suis regardé dans une glace
Et j'ai vu que j'avais rêvé
Je m'suis dit: faudra bien qu' j'm'y fasse
Tout finira par arriver.

Et je m'en vais clopin-clopant
Dans le soleil et dans le vent
De temps en temps le coeur chancelle
Y'a des souv'nirs qui s'amoncellent
Et je m'en vais clopin-clopant
En promenant mon coeur d'enfant
Comme s'envole une hirondelle
La vie s'enfuit à tire-d'aile
Et ça fait mal aux coeurs d'enfants
Qui s'en vont seuls, clopin-clopant.



Tout l'bonheur qu'on a vu naître
Tes lèvres douces, parfum de miel
Nos deux fronts contre la fenêtre
Nos regards perdus dans le ciel
Le train noir hurlant dans la gare
Le monstrueux désert des rues
Tes mots d'adieu, tes mots bizarres
Depuis six mois, tu n'écris plus...

Et je m'en vais clopin-clopant
Dans le soleil et dans le vent
De temps en temps le coeur chancelle
Y'a des souv'nirs qui s'amoncellent
Et je m'en vais clopin-clopant
En promenant mon coeur d'enfant
Comme s'envole une hirondelle
La vie s'enfuit à tire-d'aile
Et ça fait mal aux coeurs d'enfants
Qui s'en vont seuls, clopin-clopant.

Hobbling my way

I was born with angel eyes
and dimples on my chubby cheeks.
I lost my cheeks and my diapers
and I broke all my toys.
I looked at me in the mirror
and I realized it was all a dream.
I said to myself: I'll have to live with it,
everything will happen, eventually.

And so I hobble my way through life1
under the sun and in the wind,
from time to time my heart wavers.
There are memories piling up
and I hobble my way through life,
taking my children's heart around,
like a swallow would,
so does life soar away,
and that hurts the child-hearted
who hobble alone in life.

All the joy we saw blooming,
your sweet lips, a taste of honey,
our both foreheads against the window,
our gazes lost in the sky,
the black train screaming in the station,
the ghastly emptiness of streets,
your parting words, your words so wierd.
It's been six months since you last wrote.

And so I hobble my way through life
under the sun and in the wind,
from time to time my heart wavers.
There are memories piling up
and I hobble my way through life,
taking my children's heart around.
like a swallow would,
so does life soar away,
and that hurts the child-hearted
who hobble alone in life.

Allain Leprest - Y'a rien qui s'passe - 1986
Chanson / Chanteur réaliste.

Album: Mec


Wikipédia (Google translate)

Allain Leprest is a poet-lyricist and French singer born on June 3, 1954 in Cotentin in Lestre (Manche) and died on August 15, 2011 in Antraigues-sur-Volane (Ardeche).

Allain Leprest spent his childhood in Seine-Maritime: in Mont-Saint-Aignan "near Rouen" as he sings in his two songs in the same title.
At 27, Allain decided to pack his bags and left Normandy for the French capital. It is in Ivry-sur-Seine, where it happens thanks to Jean Ferrat, that he will live the essential of his life, family and artistic.

Genius author, masterful performer on stage in the tradition of French poetic song, often compared to Jacques Brel, but remaining unclassifiable by his talent, he writes and interprets his own songs, often set to music by Romain Didier, but also By Etienne Goupil, Gérard Pierron, Richard Galliano, Luis Sylvestre Ramos, Jean Ferrat, François Lemonnier, Nathalie Miravette, Michel Précastelli, Daniel Lavoie and others.

Allain Leprest is accompanied for almost ten years by pianist Jean-Louis Beydon. He criss-crosses France, but also occurs beyond the borders of the hexagon. He was accompanied on the piano by Nathalie Miravette from 2000 to 2011 or by Léo Nissim from 2004 to 2011.

Dans le café d'Omaha Beach
La barmaid écoute Europe 1
Sur le papier de mon sandwich
J'écris des chansons à la main
Elle met la table, elle débarrasse
Elle remplit les verres, je les vide
Quand ils sont vides, elle les remplace
L'air du large, c'est toujours humide

Y a rien qui s'passe

Les vagues et les jours c'est pareil
On dort on bronze on baise on dort
Les nuits d'orage on se réveille
Sur un matelas de poissons morts
Le soir, on dénoue ses godasses
On s'coue l'sable et le varech
Le lendemain, on les relace
On s'rait mieux de dormir avec

Y a rien qui s'passe

Omaha Beach ou Saint-Malo
La mer vient, repart et revient
Elle s'échine à faire son boulot
Que pourtant, ça la mène à rien
La mer, c'est comme tout, on s'en lasse
Quand elle aura léché la côte
On attendra la marée basse
Puis après... ben la marée haute!

Y a rien qui s'passe

Omaha Beach, drôle de dimanche
La môme rebeurre un sandwich
Son p'tit coeur bat entre deux tranches
Pour le grand brun qui mate ses miches
J'peux pas la trouver dégueulasse
Moi, c'est pour mille ans que je l'aime
Lui, il vide ses couilles et il s'casse
Et chuis tranquille jusqu'à la quinzaine

Y a rien qui s'passe

C'est du beau temps, c'est des averses
Des nimbus stratus de passage
Comme ces voyageurs de commerce
Qui claquent cent balles dans son corsage
"Marie beaux-seins, un cube de glace
Une paille et un verre de vin rose"
Moi si y a des trucs qui m'agacent
C'est de dire vingt fois la même chose

Y a rien qui s'passe

Vas-y qu'elle rebeurre un sandwich
Et le billard remue la queue
Les riches essaient de jouer aux riches
Mais les fauchés jouent mieux qu'eux
Le vent pousse sur la terrasse
Les trois dés tombés de ma main
Il me manque toujours un as
Pour claquer un 421

Y a rien qui s'passe

Aujourd'hui j'ai fait ma valse
Et j'ai replié mon courage
J'ai une plaie sur la chemise
Et un accroc sur le visage
Omaha Beach, pas une trace
S'en vont et reviennent les flots
Une éponge de mer efface
Un grand ciel vert comme un tableau

Y a rien qui s'passe...

There is nothing that is going on

In the Omaha Beach cafe
The barmaid listens to Europe 1
On my sandwich paper
I write songs by hand
She sets the table, she clears it off
She refills the glasses, I empty them
When they are empty, she refills the,
The offshore air, it's always wet

There is nothing that is going on

Waves and days, it's the same
We sleep on a bronze, we fuck, we sleep
On stormy nights, we wake up
On a mattress of dead fish
In the evening, we untie his shoes
One stays on sand and kelp
The next day, they retie them
One shouts it would be better to sleep with

There is nothing that is going on

Omaha Beach or Saint-Malo
The sea comes, leaves and returns
She runs out to do her job
However, it just leads to nothing
The sea is like everything, we get tired of it
When she had licked the rib
We will wait for the low tide
Then after ... well, the high tide!

There is nothing that is going on

Omaha Beach, funny Sunday
The girl rebutters a sandwich
Her little heart beats between two slices
For the big brown who mates his loaves
I can't find it disgusting
Me, it's for a thousand years that I love it
He empties his balls and he cracks
And whistles quietly until the fortnight

There is nothing that is going on

It's fine weather, it's rain showers
The nimbus stratus of passage
As these commercial travelers
Who slam a hundred balls in her bodice
"Mary's beautiful breasts, a cube of ice
A straw and a glass of pink wine "
Me, if there are things that annoy me
It is to say the same thing twenty times

There is nothing that is going on

Go for it, where she rebutters a sandwich
And the billiard stirs the line
The rich try to play the rich
But the broke players play better than they do
Wind blows on the terrace
The three dice have fallen from my hand
I still miss an ace
To slam a 421

There is nothing that is going on

Today I did my waltz
And I folded my courage
I have a wound on the shirt
And a snag on the face
Omaha Beach, not a trace
The waves come and go
A sea sponge erases
A big green sky like a painting

There is nothing that is going on...

Damien Saez - Jeune et con - 1999
Alternative Rock / Pop Rock / Post grunge

Album: Jours étranges (RYM: 2.91/5)

Artist Biography by Chris True (Allmusic)

Damien Saez was a French singer/songwriter who first studied music -- piano -- at the Conservatoire National de Région de Dijon before signing to Island/Universal in 1999.
Influenced by classic rock artists such as Led Zeppelin, the Sex Pistols, and U2, as well as '90s giants Jeff Buckley, Blur, and Radiohead, Saez -- born in Savoy, France on August 1, 1977 -- recorded and released his first album, Jours Étranges, late in 1999, and the collection sold well and earned him quite a good number of plaudits. 2001 saw the release of his first collection of poems, À Ton Nom, and in 2002, he released album number two, God Blesse -- which was meant to be a companion to the online experimental instrumental album Katagena available as a free for download and contained the highly controversial single "Sexe."
His 2004 album, Debbie, was his last for Island/Universal. In April of 2008, he released his fourth album, Killing the Lamb. In 2009 he released his first album entirely of English songs entitled Yellow Tricycle - A Lovers Prayer. He released J'Accuse in 2010 and followed this up with the 2012 Messina which was a more of dance-orientated record.

AllMusic Review by Bradley Torreano (Allmusic)

French alternative rocker Damien Saez does the impossible on Jours Étranges: he creates a distinct and powerful voice out of the post-grunge rock sound. But unlike Creed and Bush and their ilk, Saez changes all the rules around and refuses to rehash ideas that were old to begin with. For example, the emotive singer and some noisy guitar are paired with a funky beat and dramatic keyboards, resulting in the grand and intense "Soleil 2000." The thickest sludge anthems are ended with minute-long piano codas. The songs are filled with beeps, noises, and Edge-like guitar parts without one hint of useless irony or angst-driven cynicism. Taking the sounds of the '90s and updating them for the next decade, Saez made an excellent album that deserves more credit. This should be a mandatory listen for every faux grunge band who littered the radio while Saez toiled in obscurity due to the notion that language is too big of a wall for American music fans to climb.




Encore un jour se lève sur la planète France
Et je sors doucement de mes rêves
Je rentre dans la danse, comme toujours
Il est huit heures du soir
J'ai dormi tout le jour
Je me suis encore couché trop tard
Je me suis rendu sourd

Encore, encore une soirée où la jeunesse France
Encore, elle va bien s'amuser puisqu'ici rien n'a de sens
Alors on va danser, faire semblant d'être heureux
Pour aller gentiment se coucher, mais demain rien n'ira mieux

Refrain :
Puisqu'on est jeune et con
Puisqu'ils sont vieux et fous
Puisque des hommes crèvent sous les ponts
Et ce monde s'en fout
Puisqu'on est que des pions
Contents d'être à genoux
Puisque je sais qu'un jour nous gagnerons à devenir fous
Devenir fous, devenir fous...

Encore un jour se lève sur la planète France
Mais j'ai depuis longtemps perdu mes rêves
Je connais trop la danse, comme toujours
Il est huit heures du soir
J'ai dormi tout le jour
Je sais qu'on est quelques milliards
À chercher l'amour

Encore, encore une soirée où la jeunesse France
Encore, elle va bien s'amuser dans cet état d'urgence
Alors elle va danser faire semblant d'exister
Qui sait ?
Si on ferme les yeux on vivra vieux

Refrain

Encore un jour se lève sur la planète France
Mais j'ai depuis longtemps perdu mes rêves
Je connais trop la danse, comme toujours
Il est huit heures du soir
J'ai dormi tout le jour
Je sais qu'on est quelques milliards...
À chercher l'amour

Young and Dumb

Another day is rising over planet France
I'm slowly waking from my dreams
I'm joining the dance, as usual
It's 8 PM
I've been sleeping all day long
I went to bed too late again
I made myself deaf

Another, another party and the French youth
Will have a ball again, for here nothing makes sense
So they'll go out to dance and pretend to be happy
And quietly go to bed then, but tomorrow nothing will be finer

(chorus)
Since we're young and dumb
Since they are old and ill
Since some men die under the bridges
And this world doesn't care
Since we're nothing but pawns
Glad to be slaves
Since I know that one day, it'll serve us to go crazy
Go crazy, go crazy...

Another day is rising over planet France
But it's been long since I lost my dreams
I know the 'dance' too well. As usual
It's 8 PM
And I've been sleeping all day long
I know there are some billions of us on Earth
Looking for love

Another, another party and the French youth
Will enjoy themselves again, in this state of emergency
So they'll go out to dance and pretend to exist
Who know?
If we close our eyes, perhaps we'll live better

(chorus)

Another day is rising over planet France
But I lost my dreams a long time ago
I know the 'dance' too well. As usual
It's 8 PM
And I've been sleeping all day long
I know there are some billions of us on Earth...
Looking for love

Necromancer I've become
With ancient chaos I spawn the creatures
Under my will - they now proceed - with malignancy
Breaking the ground - fouling the crypt - with putrid powers
Undead terror, crawling from me
Waking the dead with sorcery
Flash in decay - my source of power - I'm addicted to putrefaction
This sanctity - soiled by darkness - our church of procreation

Putrid... death... sorcery

Necromancy - exhume the dead
Frantic ritual - my gruesome ascent
Putrid powers
Death sorcery

Mortem ritu invocare tenebris

Necromancer I've become
With ancient chaos I spawn the creatures
Under my will - they now proceed
With malignancy
Breaking the ground - fouling the crypt
With putrid powers

Pestilential baptism by blood
Stench of decay blackens the cross
Shattering the graves - puking death
Ancient gateway from necromantia
Preachers of doom - total darkness
Putrid... death... sorcery

French chanson..without vocal...hmmm... Maybe you can try Michel Legrand, the great composer of Les Demoiselles de Rochefort and other film music...but maybe I don't understand your question.

Etienne Jaumet - La visite - 2014 - Electro & Jazz
Progressive Electro / Nu Jazz


Album: La visite (RYM: 3.19/5)

Artist Biography by Jason Birchmeier (Allmusic)


Affiliated with a handful of different groups, most notably Zombie Zombie, Etienne Jaumet is a French producer/multi-instrumentalist. Following engagements in groups such as the Married Monk and Flóp, Jaumet formed the duo Zombie Zombie with Cosmic Neman and released the Zombie Zombie 12" EP on Boomboomtchak Records in 2006. The duo then moved to Versatile Records and released Driving This Road Until Death Sets You Free (2007), a 12" single that preceded the release of the accompanying full-length A Land for Renegades (2008).
In 2007, also on Versatile Records, Jaumet made his solo debut with Repeat Again After Me, a 12" release featuring a remix of the title track by Âme. His first full-length, the Carl Craig-produced Night Music, arrived in 2009 and spawned that year's Entropy EP. Jaumet returned in 2011 with the tech-house single Satori, and kept busy with collaborations with artists including Joakim and Richard Pinhas. After spending some time working with Zombie Zombie -- including a tribute to John Carpenter, the soundtrack Loubia Hamra, and their second album Rituels d'un Nouveau Monde -- Jaumet returned to his solo career. The single Metallik Cages arrived in late 2014, heralding the release of La Visite, a more dance-oriented set, in February 2015.

AllMusic Review by Heather Phares

In some ways, it's a shame Etienne Jaumet called his first album Night Music. While that name was an apt description for his Carl Craig-produced solo debut -- which expanded on the atmospheric tech-house he also explores as one half of Zombie Zombie -- La Visite is also filled with tracks that sound best after dark.
This time, Jaumet opts for a more streamlined, and more danceable, approach reflecting the years between this album and Night Music. His collaboration with Richard Pinhas and his DJ gigs inform La Visite's sleek yet playful feel, exemplified by the single "Metallik Cages," where a slow-building and burning beat is joined by foggy synths and clanking percussion with sinister and kinetic results. The title track follows suit, balancing Jaumet's trusty saxophone with newer elements like his vocals so deftly that its flirtations with camp never get in the way of its momentum. Even songs that hark back to Night Music or his work with Zombie Zombie, such as the winking "Anatomy of a Synthesizer," could fit easily into a dancefloor mix along with "Stuck in the Shadow of Your Love," a whispery, urgent standout that makes the most of its surging synths and rolling beats. Jaumet doesn't abandon Night Music's introspection entirely, however.
Many of these tracks are downright subdued, which is all the more impressive considering that their instrumentation could tip over into wackiness in less assured hands. "Moderne Jungle"'s blend of sax and rubbery electronics sounds contemplative thanks to the vast amount of space surrounding them, an approach Jaumet returns to on "Midnight Man" and "Module Mou," which resembles Night Music's drifting kosmiche in miniature. The ease and flair with which Jaumet blends old and new, and atmosphere and purpose, on La Visite make it some of his most accomplished music yet.




À la visite de mon corps
Je suis arrivé en retard

Essoufflé, sur le tapis rouge de ma langue
Dans le cirque de mes molaires
J'entendais le groupe parti sans moi
Déjà loin dans l’œsophage
Et les paroles du guide, rendues inintelligibles par l'écho

À la visite de mon corps
Je suis arrivé en retard

J'ai sauté à pieds joints sur la luette
Et j'ai essayé de suivre la trace du groupe de visiteurs
Mais je n'y voyais goutte
Après un détour dans mes poumons
J'ai fini par retrouvé le circuit digestif
Essoufflé, dans le ballon violet de mon estomac

À la visite de mon corps
Je suis arrivé en retard

Dans le ruisseau puant des sucs gastriques
J'entendais le groupe parti sans moi
M'ayant sans doute oublié
Ou considéré comme absent
Loin, dans l'intestin grêle
Et les paroles du guide, étouffées par les parois muqueuses.

À la visite de mon corps
Je suis arrivé en retard

Voici dix ans que je réside dans la crique
De mon pancréas
J'entends deux fois par semaine la cavalcade
De la visite de mon corps
Et les paroles du guide
Cette fois distinctes
Qui racontent l'histoire du fantôme du pancréas
Tandis que les visiteurs entendent mon rire démultiplié par l'écho.

Héhéhéhé...

The tour

I was late for
the tour of my body

Breathless, on my tongue's red carpet,
in the half-circle of my molars
I heard the group that had left without me,
already far away in the esophagus,
and the guide's speech, blurred by echoes

I was late for
the tour of my body

I jumped up the uvula
and tried to track the visitors' group
but I could not see a thing.
After a detour in my lungs
I finally found my way to the digestive tract,
out of breath, in the violet balloon of my stomach.

I was late for
the tour of my body

In the stinking stream of gastric juices
I could hear the group that had left without me,
(they probably had forgotten about me,
or maybe counted me missing),
far away in the small intestine,
and the guide's speech, muffled by the mucous membranes.

I was late for
the tour of my body

I've been living for ten years now
in the cove of my pancreas.
I hear twice a week the trampling
of the tour of my body,
and the guide's speech,
not muffled this time,
telling the story of the phantom of the pancreas.
as the visitors hear my laughter, amplified by echoes

Hehehehe...

Emily Loizeau - Je suis jalouse - 2006
Chanson / Pop / folk pop

Album: L'autre but du monde ( RYM: 3.30/5)


Allmusic:

b. 7 February 1975, France. One of the new wave of French chansonniers to emerge in the new millennium, Loizeau’s music is also heavily influenced by her theatrical background.
Born to a French father and English mother, Loizeau received classical training in the piano and spent time in London studying theatre at the L’École Philippe Gaulier. Her initial showbusiness aspirations were directed towards the theatre, including time spent working as an assistant director to composer Georges Aperghis.
She launched her singing career in the new millennium, spending several years working on her debut L’Autre Bout Du Monde. The album favoured rhythms drawn from music hall and cabaret alongside conventional singer-songwriter traits, and featured duets with the US artist Andrew Bird and fellow French singer-songwriter Franck Monnet. Released in 2006 by the Fargo label, the album enjoyed commercial success in France and was also a cult hit in the UK. Loizeau’s live shows are notable for their theatrical bent, complete with carefully choreographed visuals.

AllMusic Review by John Schacht

A handful of female French singers have made modest inroads in the States in recent years, including Francoiz Breut, Keren Ann (an Israeli based in Paris), Valérie Leulliot (ex-Autour de Lucie), and the Nouvelle Vague-series vocalists (Marina Celeste, Melanie Pain, et. al.). But their music is often informed by American traditions, sometimes blurring borders to the point that only the French language -- or a slight accent if they're singing in English, which many do -- offers any clue to their origins. That's emphatically not the case with Emily Loizeau's sparkling debut. What the French have dubbed "Le Nouvelle Scene" (The New Scene) has a roots music branch that celebrates the country's storied chanson tradition rather than turning to foreign trends, and Loizeau's record places her at the head of it. Though her lineage includes Françoise Hardy, Serge Gainsbourg, and other post-'60s artists who took cues from American jazz and pop but put a Gallic stamp on them, Loizeau's roots stretch back further, from national icons like folk poet George Brassen and Edith Piaf to Django Reinhardt. With her cabaret touches, unabashedly romantic subject matter, and clever wordplay, L'Autre Bout du Monde ("The Other Side of the World") is French by birth. This doesn't make Loizeau calcified retro by any means. She's armed with a playful and lilting voice, inventive chamber strings arrangements, and a superior sense of melody in either pop or traditional idioms. As a result, L'Autre Bout du Monde sounds timeless.

Naturally, a year or two of high school French will unveil the vernacular subtleties, as well as metaphors so fecund you can smell the Gitanes and taste the pastis. But in addition to two songs sung in English, Loizeau can go bilingual mid-verse: "Oh, my baby, shall we play another game/pour la reste de ma vie?" she sings on the bubbly "Boby Cheri," a flirty, Brassen-like narrative powered by walking bass and a '30s jazz tempo. On "London Town," a wistful duet with kindred soul and European labelmate Andrew Bird, the two even switch tongues, with Bird putting his French lessons to good use. But you don't need a French/English dictionary to enjoy the songs. Loizeau travels well because of her memorable melodies and vocals and arrangements whose shifting moods and nuances sound like those of a veteran, not a novice. Double bass and brushed percussion provide the rhythmic scaffolding, with Loizeau's voice and piano carrying the melodic load. The shading comes from pizzicato or bowed strings, and songs like the haunting title track, the Gypsy-hued "Comment Dire" ("How to Say"), and the lullaby "Je Ne Sais Pas Choiser" ("I Don't Know How to Choose") are chamber pop with a strong Gallic twist. Wistful ballads spotlight the classically trained Loizeau's piano skills, adding airy, Erik Satie-like reveries or playful Henri Renaud jazz touches. All these elements coalesce into transcendence on album centerpiece "Je Suis Jalouse" ("I'm Jealous"), a three-minute march with exultant choruses and rapid-fire verses that recall Piaf -- sans vocal quaver -- at her most frank and vulnerable. It's classic pop that could come from any era, and if it were sung in English, it would probably wind up in an iPod advert. The record's only misstep is "Voilà Pourquoi" ("This Is Why"), a nursery rhyme too playful by half, the toy piano and "bomp-bomp-bomp" harmonies cloying and cartoonish rather than cabaret. Will L'Autre Bout du Monde find an American audience beyond tuned-in Francophiles? It certainly deserves one, no matter what side of the world Loizeau is from. (The record will be reissued by the French label Fargo in 2008 with an additional disc of live versions and cover songs of Brassen, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan, among others.)



J'ai encore pleuré deux heures
Sur ta boîte de petits beurres
La fameuse avec les lettres
Les photos de New Hampshire
Ton voyage en amoureux
Avec Adèle de Bayeux
Je trouve son nom ridicule
On dirait une marque de pull
Elle voudrait me rencontrer
Nous avoir pour déjeuner
C'est sure elle va m'adorer
Et elle a tellement insisté

Oui, je suis jalouse
Oui, c'est ça tout simplement jalouse
Je suis jalouse

Je mange toute seule au chinois
C'est pratique c'est juste en bas
Je t'ai laissé y aller tout seul
Maintenant je m'en morde les doigts
Tu me dis c'est trop dommage
Elle fait si bien la cuisine
Je lui ferait bien mon potage
À la nitroglycérine
La bile et le glutamate
Se chamaillent dans ma rate
Je me dis ça à chaque fois
Je ne mangerai plus chinois

Oui, je suis jalouse
Oui, c'est ça tout simplement jalouse
Je suis jalouse

Ton Adèle veut te revoir
Elle est libre plutôt le soir
Te parler de temps en temps
Sourions, serrons les dents
C'est vrai - c'est assez normal
Je n'y vois pas d'inconvénient
Je ne vais pas faire un scandale
Pour vous deux c'est important
Mais c'est l'art de ma jalousie
De ne pas savoir te dire
Oui, ça me fait un peu bizarre
Que vous vouliez vous revoir

Et oui, je suis jalouse
Oui, c'est ça tout simplement jalouse
Je suis jalouse (2x)

I'm Jealous

I cried again two hours
On your Petits beurres box
The famous one with the letters
The photos of New Hampshire
Your romantic trip
with Adele de Bayeux
I think her surname ridiculous
It sounds like a sweater brand
She would like to meet
and have a lunch with me
Sure, she will ador me
and she was so insistent

Yes, I am jealous
Yes, that's it, just simply jealous
I am jealous

I eat alone in Chinese restaurant
It is convenient, it is just down
I let you go there all alone
Now, I bite my fingers
You told me "That is a pity"
She cooks so well
I would make him my soup
with nitroglycerin
Bile and glutamates
They discuss in my spleen
I say this to myself everytime
I won't eat chinese anymore

Yes, I am jealous
Yes, that's it, just simply jealous
I am jealous

Your Adele wants to see you again
She is quite free in the evening
to talk with you from time to time
Smiling, squeezing the teeth
This is true - this is normal enough
I don't see any inconvenience
I won't make any scandal
for you both it is important
But this is the art of my jealosy
not knowing to tell you
Yes, it makes me a little weird
that you want to see each other again

Yes, I am jealous
Yes, that's it, just simply jealous
I am jealous

Mathieu Boogaerts - Une bonne nouvelle - 2005
Chanson / Singer-songwriter

Album: Michel (RYM: 3.53/5)

Artist Biography by Jason Birchmeier (Allmusic)

Mathieu Boogaerts is an acclaimed French alternative singer/songwriter whose eclectic style draws from Afro-pop and reggae as well as indie electronica and folk music. Born in 1970 in Fontenay-sous-Bois, Île-de-France, France, he made his commercial recording debut in 1995 with the four-track maxi-single Ondulé Spécial on Remark Records, followed shortly thereafter by his accompanying full-length album debut, Super (1996).
After switching to the label Disc'AZ, Boogaerts again released a maxi-single, the five-track Version Simple (Et Version Compliquée) (1998), in advance of his full-length effort, J'en Ai Marre d'Être Deux (1998). Featuring a memorably folky Michael Jackson medley, "Beat It/Billie Jean," J'en Ai Marre d'Être Deux was a commercial breakthrough for the alternative singer/songwriter, reaching number 67 on the French albums chart.
In the wake of this breakthrough success, Boogaerts released a live album, Mathieu Boogaerts en Public (2000), and advanced to another label, the prestigious Warner Music France subsidiary Tôt ou Tard, on which he released the album 2000 (2002). Reaching number 25 on the French albums chart, 2000 marked the growing popularity of Boogaerts, and a November 2002 concert performance at Le Lavoir Moderne Parisien in Paris was filmed and later released on DVD as 2000 en Concert "Solo" (2003) in order to accommodate his expanding fan base.
While the successive albums Michel (2005) and I Love You (2008) were less successful commercially, neither breaking into the Top 50 of the French albums chart, they found Boogaerts moving in new directions creatively and were generally well received among critics as well as fans. In addition to his album output, Boogaerts is featured multiple times on the Tôt ou Tard compilations Plutôt Tôt -- Plutôt Tard (2005), a double-disc label showcase comprised of collaborations, and Le Grand Dîner (2006), an homage to Dick Annegarn.



Une bonne nouvelle, une bonne nouvelle végétale
Une carte postale, une carte postale d'la campagne
Regarde le ciel comme elle est belle
Cette carte postale de Michel
Avec un mot pour toi, pour moi, pour nous
Des mots sur des choux, partout des coucous

Une bonne nouvelle, une bonne nouvelle matinale
Ah c'qu'elle est bonne, ah c'qu'elle me donne le moral
Un cadeau d'noël avec deux ailes
Pour deux personnes Isabelle
Une bonne nouvelle pour toi, pour moi, pour nous
C'est chouette les hiboux, girouettes, coucous

D'toute façon c'est dans l'ordre des choses
De penser à autre chose
Si quelque part en France
Si quelque part la chance
Elle passait par cette chance
Voudrais-tu comme moi
La saisir pour une fois

Une étincelle, une étincelle dans tes yeux
N'importe laquelle, je veux savoir c'que tu veux
Montre moi le ciel comme il est mieux
Sous le soleil de Mathieu
Comme il est mieux pour toi, pour moi, pour nous
Du bleu et c'est tout, le reste plus du tout
Oh des vœux tout à coup, un peu, beaucoup

D'toute façon c'est dans l'ordre des choses
De penser à autre chose
Si quelque part en France
Si quelque part la chance
Elle passait par cette chance
Voudrais-tu comme moi
La saisir pour une fois

A good piece of news

Good news, good vegetal news
A postcard, a postcard from the country
Look at this sky, it's so bueautiful
this postcard from Michel
There's a word for you, for me, for us
Words about cabbages, cuckoos everywhere

Good news, good morning news
Such good news, that lifts my spirits
A christmas present with a pair of wings
for two poeple, Isabelle
Good news for you, for me, for us
Owls, wheatervanes, cuckoos are so nice

Anyway that's the way it goes,
avoiding to think of it.
Should somewhere in France
Should somewhere the chance
come across that chance,
would you like, like me
grab it for once?

A spark, a sparkling in your eyes
No matter which one, I want to know what you want
Show me how the sky is better
under Mathieu's sun
How the sky is better for you, for me, for us
Just some blue, nothing left of the rest
Oh, wishes all of a sudden, loves me, loves me not1

Anyway that's the way it goes,
avoiding to think of it.
Should somewhere in France
Should somewhere the chance
come across that chance,
would you like, like me
grab it for once?

1. the French variant of daffodil plucking goes "il/elle m'aime un peu, beaucoup, passionnément, à la folie, pas du tout" (he/she loves me a bit, a lot, passionately, madly, not at all)

François Deguelt - Le ciel, le soleil et la mer - 1965
Chanson

Wikiédia:
François Deguelt (born Louis Deghelt, 4 December 1932 – 22 January 2014) was a French singer, best known for his participation on behalf of Monaco in the Eurovision Song Contests of 1960 and 1962.

Deguelt gave up his studies to become a cabaret singer in Paris in the early 1950s. In 1956, he was the winner of the Grand Prix du Disque of the Académie Charles Cros. Following a period of military service in Algeria, Deguelt returned to France, and was offered the chance in 1960 to sing for Monaco in the fifth Eurovision Song Contest, held in London on 29 March. Deguelt's song "Ce soir-là" ("That Night") proved popular with the juries, finishing in third place of the 13 entrants.

Deguelt returned to Eurovision, again representing Monaco, in 1962 with the song "Dis rien" ("Say Nothing"). This contest took place on 18 March in Luxembourg City, where he went one better by finishing second of 16 participants. Deguelt is one of five acts in Eurovision history (alongside Cliff Richard, Katja Ebstein, Chiara Siracusa and Zeljko Joksimovic) to have finished second and third without having won.

Deguelt's later successful singles included "Le Ciel, le soleil et la mer" (1965), "Le printemps" (1966), "Minuit, le vent, la nuit" (1968) and "La libération" (1968). Heccontinues to tour and perform on the nostalgia circuit throughout the Francophone world until his death. He died at the age of 81 on 22 January 2014.




Allongés sur la plage
Les cheveux dans les yeux
Et le nez dans le sable
On est bien tous les deux
C´est l´été, les vacances
Oh, Mon Dieu, quelle chance!
Il y a le ciel, le soleil et la mer
Il y a le ciel, le soleil et la mer

Ma cabane est en planches
Et le lit n´est pas grand
Tous les jours c´est dimanche
Et nous dormons longtemps
A midi sur la plage
Les amis de notre âge
Chantent tous: le ciel, le soleil et la mer
Chantent tous: le ciel, le soleil et la mer.

Et le soir, tous ensemble
Quand nous allons danser
Un air qui te ressemble
Viens toujours te chercher
Il parle de vacances
Et d´amour et de chance
En chantant: le ciel, le soleil et la mer
En chantant: le ciel, le soleil et la mer.

Quelque part en septembre
Nous nous retrouverons
Et le soir dans ta chambre
Nous le rechanterons
Malgré le vent d´automne
Et les pluies monotones
Nous aurons: le ciel, le soleil et la mer
Nous aurons: le ciel, le soleil et la mer.

The Sky, The Sun And The Sea

Lying down on the beach,
With our hair in our eyes
And our nose in the sand,
We both feel good
It's summer, we're on vacation
Oh, my God, such a luck!
There's the sky, the sun and the sea
There's the sky, the sun and the sea

My cabin is made of wood,
And the bed isn't very big
Every day is a Sunday,
And we sleep quite late
At the beach at noon,
With people our age
They all sing: the sky, the sun and the sea
They all sing: the sky, the sun and the sea

And at night, when we all
Go out dancing together,
Some melody that's much like you
Always comes and moves you
It tells of vacations
And of love and of luck
Singing: the sky, the sun and the sea
Singing: the sky, the sun and the sea

At some point in September,
We will see each other again
And at night, in your room,
We will sing it again
Despite the autumn wind
And the dreary rain
We will have: the sky, the sun and the sea
We will have: the sky, the sun and the sea

Hi Romain, I saw Steve Shehan in Paris at the weekend (http://www.newmorning.com/20170415-3654 ... hehan.html) and enjoyed it a lot. Would he be worthy of a mention on this thread?

Colette Mars - Le vent emporte ma chanson - 1946
Chanson

Wikipédia (Google translate)
Colette Mars is a French actress and singer born in Tangier (Morocco) on August 10, 1916 and died in Sion (Switzerland) on March 14, 1995. She was a colorful and inescapable character of the French nightlife of the 50s and 60s.



Le vent emporte ma chanson
Qui te dira mon grand amour
Tout au long des jours malheureux
Pour me guider, j'avais tes yeux
Et dans mon cœur le fol espoir
De te revoir

Le vent emporte ma chanson
C'est la chanson de notre amour
Moi, je sais que tu reviendras
Avec le bonheur d'autrefois
Mes larmes seront effacées
Par tes baisers

Sur notre bonheur affolé
Le malheur s'était abattu
Et tout, hélas, fut emporté
Notre bonheur était perdu

Mais les cœurs qui s'aiment vraiment
Résistent toujours aux tourments
Il me restait cette chanson
Pour me bercer dans l'abandon

Le vent emporte ma chanson
Qui te dira mon grand amour
Tout au long des jours malheureux
Pour me guider, j'avais tes yeux
Et dans mon cœur le fol espoir
De te revoir

Le vent emporte ma chanson
C'est la chanson de notre amour
Enfin, tu es là près de moi
Soyons heureux comme autrefois
Jusqu'à la fin de notre vie
Toujours unis

Le vent emporte ma chanson

I do, but I'm having a bit of bother finding it or anything similarly representative online... Might have to come back to this.

Cléo - Et moi, et toi, et soie - 1966
Chanson / Yéyé

Wikipédia:
Chantal Rousselot (1946) stage name Cléo is a French yéyé singer popular 1966–1970. She recorded six singles, two of them with Richard Fontaine as the duo Cédric et Cléo, inspired by Sonny and Cher. She married Herbert Léonard whom she met in 1967.



Toi et moi on se tutoie
Ça va de soi
Je n'ai jamais un sou de toi
Mais je porte des dessous de soie
Ça va de soi
Tous les deux on est si bien chez soi
Avec un verre devant soi
Un verre à soi ça va de soi
Pour toi et moi

Il t'a fallu des mois et des mois
Pour dénicher un petit toit
Un petit toit pour toi et moi
Un petit toit ça va de soi
Ça va de soi

Toi et moi on est à tu et à toi
Dans nos joli draps de soie
Oui de la soie pour toi et moi
Ça va de soi
Mais je m'enfuirai de ton toit
Si un jour tu me déçois
Ton moi passe bien avant ton toit
Ça va de soi
Un garçon m'a dit toi Hélène
Sois pour moi toujours la même
Sois pure Hélène il fait si froid
Sois toi pour moi ça va de soi
Et moi et toi et toi et soi
Et moi et moi et quoi et toi
Et moi et toi et soi et moi
Et soi et toi et moi et quoi
Et moi et toi et quoi et toi

You and me and the silk

You and me, we're rather closeusing "tu" instead of the more formal "vous" when adressing each other
That goes without saying.
You never give me any money
still I wear silk underwear
That goes without saying
We're both so happy at home
with a glass in front of us
Our own glass1, that goes without saying
for you and me.

It took you months
to find a nice little roof
a little home for you and me
A little roof, that goes without saying
That goes without saying

You and me, we're thick as thieves
in our nice silken bedsheets.
Silk for you and me indeed,
that goes without saying.
Still I will run away from your roof2
should you disappoint me someday.
You are more important to me than your home
that goes without saying
A boy said to me "Hey you, Hélène,
please remain the same for me.
Be pure, Hélène, it's so cold out there
Be yourself for me, that goes without saying"
And me and you and you and oneself
And me and you and what and you
And me and you and oneself and me
And oneself and you and me and what
And me and you and what and you

1. sounds like "un ver à soie" (a silkworm)
2. using "roof" as a metonimy for "home", tu put yet another word sounding like "moi/toi/soi"

TGV - T.G.V. (Très Grande Vitesse) Partie 1- 1981
Synth Wave / New Wave / Minimal

Born Bad Records (Google Translate)
End 70, Natan Hercberg, is DJ and multiplies the engagements and residences in the trendy clubs of the capital ("L'Ecume des Nuits", "Le Méridien" whose owner is Patrick Topaloff).
An indefatigable nocturnal, he frequents much "The Duke of the Lombards" or all the young branchouille növö interlope loves to find himself. They thus rub shoulders with Modern Mathematics, and Jacno. Of these datings, the desire to set up a band is becoming more and more pressing and it is during his nocturnal strolls, that he meets André Demay, in which he finds the musician who was lacking him to concretize his project of group.

André, is indeed already a musician and confirmed artist during this meeting. As a guitarist, he worked as a studio shark for Christophe, and already has several albums to his credit, praised by zicos and the specialized press ("Musical Tales" (1977), "Generic" (1980)).

Quickly, the 2 boys start tweaking together. From these musical peregrinations, a first sketch of "Touche pas mon sex" is born in 79 with already this taste for the derision and the sense of irony that will characterize their future pieces.

ALEXIS, manager of the whole Parisian "new wave" (Taxi Girl among others), then agrees to look for record companies in search of an artist contract, but his prospecting remains without results ..

It was finally through one of their side project, TGV, that they recorded at the studio at night at the Ferber studio (by giving up one third of their right on the production of the title) That Natan and André will succeed in seducing Patrick Zelnick then boss of the young label VIRGIN. Happily, Patrick Zelnick is a fan of records already released by André, and delighted at the prospect of seeing him join the VIRGIN team. In short, Zelnick is enthusiastic and the negotiations are going well.

If for the COMIX, TGV is obviously a wink to Kraftwerk and their album "Trans Europe Express", for Patrick Zelnick, this title could be a clever way to recover and appropriate the enthusiasm that the TGV phenomenon.

TGV, très grande vitesse TGV, record.
TGV

Vont-ils se séparer ?
Il a l'air timide
Elle semble désemparée
Tout avait été si rapide.

TGV, très grande vitesse TGV
TGV, très grande vitesse TGV, essor.
TGV, très grande vitesse TGV, confort.
TGV, très grande vitesse TGV, décor.
TGV, très grande vitesse TGV, record.
TGV

In compartment 81
of car number 38,
their seat number 7 and 8
She is very pretty... as for him...
close cropped hair
In a definite mood for love
The waiting is limited
On platform 48.

TGV, very high speed TGV
TGV, very high speed TGV
TGV, very high speed TGV
TGV, very high speed TGV

Very little countryside
Undefined chlorophyll
Intoxicated by speed
Inspired by a common surge
stronger than tenderness
Lyon2, end of the line. All change please.

TGV, very high speed TGV
TGV, very high speed TGV soaring
TGV, very high speed TGV wellbeing
TGV, very high speed TGV scenery
TGV, very high speed TGV record-breaking
TGV

Will they break up?
He looks shy
She looks distraught
I had all happened so fast.

TGV, very high speed TGV
TGV, very high speed TGV soaring
TGV, very high speed TGV wellbeing
TGV, very high speed TGV scenery
TGV, very high speed TGV record-breaking
TGV

Translator's comments:
1. actually there are no compartments in TGV cars!
2. the first TGV line went from Paris to Marseille via Lyon

The TGV (train à grande vitesse) is a high speed train linking many major cities in France that went into service in the early 80's. There is no exact equivalent in other countries, so I left it untranslated.

Marc Collin - Les Kid Nappeurs - Thème principal - 1998- OST
Musique de film

Marc Collin is a French musician, film music composer and record producer. He is best known as the founder, with Olivier Libaux, of the project Nouvelle Vague, a covers band that covers new wave songs in a bossa nova style. Collin also released a side-project album in 2008 under his own name, titled Hollywood, mon amour, consisting of covers, on the Nouvelle Vague formula, of songs from 1980s film soundtracks. Collin stated that he did not embark on the project out of nostalgia for the films, but because he was drawn to the challenge of transforming extremely well-known hits into intimate tracks.

Collin has worked on several film soundtracks, notably that of 1998's Les Kidnappeurs, directed by Graham Guit. The main theme of Collin's score was included in collections such as Café del Mar Volume 6.

He collaborated with the Lebanese singer Yasmine Hamdan as a co-writer and producer on her album Ya Nass (2012).

Collin cited as influences, "The post-punk bands like The Cure, New Order, and also the labels like Factory, Crammed, Les Disques du Crépuscule. All these people that have created an attitude that makes other people discover artwork other than music." He cited Radiohead's Kid A (2000) as a favourite album.
