    As for the song, if it wasn't this AWESOME video, I would have liked it much less than I currently do.
    And I probably wouldn't have it posted if it hadn't have this melt between drawing and video.

    In addition to how perfect is this song, to my ears, his accent is a music inside the song...

    I'm in love. Stanislas is one of my latest discoveries.
    I like his duet with Calogero, La débâcle des sentiments.

    Here's another legendary composer and lyricist, Daniel Balavoine. Despite the shortness of his career he produced a vast amount of songs, often committed songs with an international message (love, peace, solidarity, listening to distress...) His songs sound very 80's, but are still extremely popular here and constantly covered by new or old artists.

    Daniel Balavoine - Tous les SOS



    Difficile d'appeler au secours
    Quand tant de drames nous oppressent
    Et les larmes nouees de stress
    Etouffent un peu plus les cris d'amour
    De ceux qui sont dans la faiblesse
    Et dans un dernier espoir
    Disparaissent


    Difficult to call for help
    When so many dramas oppress us
    and tears tied with stress
    Cover a little bit more cries of love
    of those who are in weakness
    and in a last hope
    vanish

    Bonjour a tous Et personne me raconte ??? Well, nice surprise! Here's Brel, Le Belge, whom the French despised a long time because of his
    Belgian accent grave,lol

    singing about childhood:




    "my father was looking for gold,
    but he found only boredom"!:

    mon père était un chercheur d'or,
    l'ennuie c'est qu'il en a trouvé"

    @Enoo: his dad wanted him to take over the factory once he retired and that's one reason why Brel detested the bourgeoisie, of which his father was
    a shining example,lol So he makes fun about them also in Bruxelles:

    "Et sur l'Imperiale, le coeur dans les étoiles, y avait mon grandpère, y avait ma grandmère
    il avait su y faire, elle l'avait laisser faire,ils avaient donc fait tous les deux
    et on voudrait que je sois serieux"!

    "and on the Place Imperial, in high spirits, there were grandpa and grandma,
    he was quite a scoundrel, but she just didn't mind,
    so you can put the blame upon both
    and then people want me to be serious!"



    (that's how I'd translate it)

    Too freaking inspired lyrics for Europe during the 80's.
    Solidarity was a word existed ONLY in dictionaries ..... (unfortunately)

    Keep posting lyrics like these Enoo!
    We wanna learn some more of this side of French culture.

    Apart from Jacques Brel another of the Big Poets of the 70's and 80's was Leo Ferré.


    This is his JEWEL: "As Time Passes": "Avec Le Temps": Masterpiece!
