    Nino Ferrer - Le Sud

    C’est un endroit qui ressemble à la Louisiane
    It's a place that looks like Louisiana
    À l’Italie
    Like Italy
    Il y a du linge étendu sur la terrasse
    There is laundry hung out on the patio
    Et c’est joli
    And it's pretty

    On dirait le Sud
    It looks like the South
    Le temps dure longtemps
    Time lasts longer
    Et la vie sûrement
    And life for sure
    Plus d’un million d’années
    More than a million years
    Et toujours en été
    And it's always summer

    Y’a plein d’enfants qui se roulent sur la pelouse
    There are a lot of children rolling on the lawn
    Y’a plein de chiens
    Lot of dogs
    Y’a même un chat, une tortue, des poissons rouges
    Even a cat, a turtle, golfish
    Il ne manque rien
    Nothing's missing

    On dirait le Sud
    It looks like the South
    Le temps dure longtemps
    Time lasts longer
    Et la vie sûrement
    And life for sure
    Plus d’un million d’années
    More than a million years
    Et toujours en été
    And it's always summer

    Un jour ou l’autre, il faudra qu’il y ait la guerre
    Sooner or later there will be war
    On le sait bien
    We do know it
    On n’aime pas ça mais on ne sait pas quoi faire
    No one likes that but no one knows what to do
    On dit, c’est le destin
    It's said to be the fate
    Tant pis pour le Sud
    It's too bad for the South

    C’était pourtant bien
    It's was nice though
    On aurait pu vivre
    We could have lived
    Plus d’un million d’années
    For more than a million years
    Et toujours en été.
    And it would have always been in summer.

    Talking Bravo Enoo!

    You eventually decided it!

    Well since I'm Greek I will post a tottaly Greek song in French!
    And yes it sounds MUCH better in French I can assure you!

    Nikos Aliagas - Le souffle

    "Gilgamesh, where are you hurrying to?
    You will never find that life for which you are looking.
    When the gods created man they allotted to him death,
    but life they retained in their own keeping"

    Red face This is another I'm addicted to .... and I trully like her smile!

    She does have a charming smile

    Les Tit' Nassels - Emmène-moi



    T'aurais voulu être le héros qui me sauve de la noyade,
    You'd have liked to be the hero that saves me from drowning
    Me sortir la tête de l'eau, puis me dire "Viens, on s'évade!",
    That gets my head out of water, and then tells me: « Come on, let's escape! »
    Sur les routes de bohème, pour une randonnée de dingue,
    For a crazy hiking on bohemian roads
    Faire un signe à ceux que j'aime, que j'suis vivant sous ma carlingue
    Waving to whose I love, saying that I'm alive beneath my shell

    Thanks Enoo (but you must not press the "Thanks" button unless I create an "important" post - a translation for example).

    Well, according to "Le vent nous portera" video there is one conclusion:
    "If you wanna have some GOOD TIME on the beach .... leave the kid at home for god's shake"
    __________________________________________

    My turn ....

    A trully OLD song. But this is a 2002 cover of the original 1952's performance for the "French Cancan" movie.
    Patrick Bruel and Francis Cabrel in La Complainte De La Butte

    Extremely touching lyrics .....

    And I consider your posts on this thread as important posts, for they are of great quality and musicality! But okay, I won't overly thank you...

    Here's a cover of Chimène Badi performing Serge Reggiani's song Ma liberté.



    Here's the translation.

    By the way she's also done a very nice cover of Je viens du Sud (Michel Sardou). Song & translation

    WOW! Powerfull lyrics indeed! And it also has "Happy End - Love message meaning"....

    This is not about the mediocre song, the rather plain lyrics....
    It's all about people's way to express themselves, about how to make the DIVA grow as a human being!


    Comme un fou, comme un soldat...
    Comme un loup, comme un roi...

    How touching, beautiful this is!! I couldn't help shivering while watching... A moment of great intensity between her and her audience...
    ...Lara Fabian as I've never seen her!! You really have amazing videos to offer!!!

    Wow! This reminds me of mid 60's early 70's.
    Bass player does some wonderfull stuff in this vid.
    Actually bass is the singer of this "song".
    The only problem is that it's TOO LONG to listen to this two times in a row.
    ______________________________________________

    I've already said that I don't consider Lara's "Je t'aime" as a serious song....
    But this is not the case with the following....

    An INCREDIBLE song ... music and orchestration are superb.
    But these lyrics .... actually these aren't lyrics, this is a poetical manifesto!

    C'est moi le maître du feu, le maître du jeu
    Le maître du monde, et vois ce que j'en ai fait
    Une terre glacée, une terre brûlée
    La terre des hommes que les hommes abandonnent!




    Please readers ... try to find some translation in your own language cause the following translations are useless

    Bonjour! Gorgeous thread <3



    Le temps des tempêtes arrive
    Avant qu'on l'ait prédit
    Amours impossibles
    Défaites, ironies.
    Quand tout s'abîme
    Quand même nos rêves fuient.
    Il ne reste qu'une île, un port, un parti
    On n'est riche que de ses amis
    C'est dit, c'est dit.

    I tottaly agree about the "cursed poet" comment.
    As for the song, if it wasn't this AWESOME video, I would have liked it much less than I currently do.

    Yeap! We're talking about a GOOD song and one hell of a MASSIVE hit!

    When it comes to french music I will always think about "Je suis malade" and its thousands versions. Dalida & Serge Lama, israeli by Harel Skaat but Lara Fabian... c'est quelque chose.
