 (by Heather Phares)

With a name that means "new wave" in English and "bossa nova" in Portuguese, Nouvelle Vague's moniker neatly sums up the group's concept: remaking classic new wave singles with a Brazilian pop twist. Nouvelle Vague is the brainchild of French producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux. Prior to this collaboration, Collin played with the trip-hop outfit Ollano; composed film soundtracks such as The Kidnapper's Theme; and released electronic music ranging from club-oriented material for Paper Recordings to more eclectic fare for Fcom and Output Records (under the aliases Avril and Volga Select, respectively). Libaux played with various French pop bands during the '90s and began working with Collin in 1998. For Nouvelle Vague, Collin and Libaux recruited half a dozen French and Brazilian vocalists who were unfamiliar with the original versions of songs like Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and XTC's "Making Plans for Nigel" to ensure that their renditions had their own identity. Nouvelle Vague was released in Europe in 2004 and received U.S. distribution in spring 2005, which coincided with tour dates in locales as far-flung as Shanghai, New York, Los Angeles, and Rio de Janeiro.

Love will tear us apart

(Joy Division)

Eloisia :

When routine bites hard
And ambitions are low.
And resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow.
And we're changing our ways
Taking different roads.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed
Every feeling run so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal
that we've kept through our lives.

And love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.

Do you cry out in your sleep,
All my failings expose?
Gets a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold.
Why is it something so good
Just can't function no more?

And Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again.
Love, love will tear us apart again...

Just can’t get enough

(Depeche Mode)

Eloisia :

When I`m with you baby
I go out of my head
I just can`t get enough
I just can`t get enough
All the things you do to me
And everything you said
I just can`t get enough
I just can`t get enough
We slip and slide as we fall in love
And I just can`t seem to get enough

We walk together
We`re walking down the street
I just can`t get enough
I just can`t get enough
Everytime I think of you
I know we have to meet
I just can`t get enough
I just can`t get enough
It`s getting hotter, it`s a burning love
And I just can`t seem to get enough

And when it rains
You`re shining down for me
I just can`t get enough
I just can`t get enough
Just like a rainbow
You know you set me free
I just can`t get enough
I just can`t get enough
You`re like an angel and you give me your love
And I just can`t seem to get enough.

In a manner of speaking

(Tuxedomoon)

Camille :

In a Manner of speaking
I just want to say
That I could never forget the way
You told me everything
By saying nothing

In a manner of speaking
I don't understand
How love in silence becomes reprimand
But the way that i feel about you
Is beyond words

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Ohohohoh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

In a manner of speaking
Semantics won't do
In this life that we live we only make do
And the way that we feel
Might have to be sacrified

So in a manner of speaking
I just want to say
That just like you I should find a way
To tell you everything
By saying nothing.

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Ohohohoh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

Oh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me nothing
Ohohohoh give me the words
Give me the words
That tell me everything

Guns of Brixton

(The Clash)

Camille :

When they kick at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in
How you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting on death row

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

The money feels good
And your life you like it well
But surely your time will come
As in heaven, as in hell

You see, he feels like Ivan
Born under the Brixton sun
His game is called survivin'
At the end of the harder they come

You know it means no mercy
They caught him with a gun
No need for the Black Maria
Goodbye to the Brixton sun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
Yes, even shoot us
But oh-the guns of Brixton

When they kick at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
Yeah, even shoot us
But oh-the guns of Brixton

Shot down on the pavement
Waiting in death row
His game is called survivin'
As in heaven as in hell

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you'll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of Brixton

(This is not a) love song

(P.I.L)

Mélanie Pain :

This is not a love song

Happy to have
Not to have not
Big business is
Very wise
I'm crossing over into
Enter prize

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

I'm adaptable
And I like my role
I'm getting better and better
And I have a new goal
I'm changing my ways
Where money applies
This is not a love song

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

I'm going over to the over side
I'm happy to have
Not to have not
Big business is
Very wise
I'm inside free
Enterprise

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

Not television
Behind the curtain
Out of the cupboard
You take the first train
Into the big world
Are you ready to grab the candle
Not television

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song
This is not a love song

Too drunk to fuck

(Dead Kennedys)

Camille :

Went to a party
I danced all night
I drank sixteen beers
And I started up a fight

But now I am jaded
You're out of luck
I'm rolling down the stairs
Too drunk to fuck

Too drunk to fuck
Too drunk to fuck
Too drunk, to fuck
I'm too drunk, too drunk, too drunk to fuck

I love your stories
I like your gun
Shooting out truck tires
Sounds like loads and loads of fun

But in my room
Wish you were dead
You ball like the baby
In Eraserhead

Too drunk to fuck
Too drunk to fuck
Too drunk to fuck
I'm too drunk, too drunk, too drunk to fuck

Too drunk to fuck
Hmm
Too drunk to fuck
I'm too drunk, too drunk, too drunk to fuck

Oh je suis trop bourrée
Pour baiser

Marian

(The Sisters of Mercy)

Alex :

In a sea of faces, in a sea of doubt
In this cruel place your voice above the maelstrom
In the wake of this ship of fools I'm falling further down
If you can see me, Marian, reach out and take me home.....

I hear you calling Marian
Across the water
Across the wave
I hear you calling Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the grave...

Marian
Marian

There's a weight above me
And the pressure is all too strong
To breathe deep, breathe long and hard
To take the water down and go to sleep
To sink still further beneath the fatal wave
Marian I think I'm drowning
This sea is killing me

I hear you calling Marian
Across the water
Across the wave
I hear you calling Marian
Can you hear me calling you to
Save me, save me, save me from the grave...

Marian

Making plans for Nigel

(XTC)

Camille :

We’re only making plans for Nigel
We only want what’s best for him
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel just needs this helping hand

And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work

We’re only making plans for Nigel
He has his future in a british steel
We’re only making plans for Nigel
Nigel’s whole future is as good as sealed

And if young Nigel says he’s happy
He must be happy
He must be happy
He must be happy in his work

Nigel is not outspoken
But he likes to speak
And loves to be spoken to
Nigel is happy in his work
Nigel is happy in his work

A forest

(The Cure)

Marina :

Come closer and see
See into the trees
Find the girl
If you can
Come closer and see
See into the dark
Just follow your eyes
Just follow your eyes

I hear her voice
Calling my name
The sound is deep
In the dark
I hear her voice
And start to run
Into the trees
Into the trees

Suddenly I stop
But I know it's too late
I'm lost in a forest
All alone
The girl was never there
It's always the same
I'm running towards nothing
Again and again and again and again
And again and again and again and again...

I melt with you

(Modern English)

Silja :

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world thrashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference and it’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you

Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
Dropped in the state of imaginary grace
I made a pilgrimage to save this humans race
Yes I did
What I’m comprehending a race that long gone bye

I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference and it’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you

The future’s open wide
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
You’ve seen the difference and it’s getting better all the time
There’s nothing you and I won’t do
I’ll stop the world and melt with you, yeah
I’ll stop the world and melt with you
I’ll stop the world and melt with you, yeah, yeah

Teenage Kicks

(The Undertones)

Mélanie Pain :

Are teenage dreams so hard to beat
Everytime she walks down the street
Another girl in the neighbourhood
Wish she was mine, she looks so good

I wanna hold her wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night

I'm gonna call her on the telephone
Have her over 'cos i'm all alone
I need excitement oh i need it bad
And it's the best, i've ever had

I wanna hold her wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night

I wanna hold her wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night

I wanna hold her wanna hold her tight
Get teenage kicks right through the night

Psyche

(Killing Joke)

Sir Alice :

You're alone in the pack
You're feeling like you want to go home
You're feeling unfinished but you keep on going

The reason is there
You'll be falling 'til your feet are gone
Because your living a hoax
Sell us what you suss

Draw your brain, a sick inspiration
Your pill illusion
And then you follow a transfer
If you don't know the game
Then you're still part of it
Because out on the streets
It's strange

Dodge the bullet or carry the gun
The choice is yours

Yeah! Yeah!

Look at the controller
A nazi with a social degree
A middle-class hero
Rapist with your eyes on me
You pay some masturbation
A priest cheers for the nuns you fuck
You'd wipe out spastics if you had the chance
But Jesus, Jesus
Jesus wouldn't like it, no
Jesus wouldn't like it, no

Friday night, saturday morning

(The Specials)

Daniella D'Ambrosio :

Out of bed at eight AM
Out my head by half past ten
Out with mates and dates and friends
That's what I do at weekends

I can't talk and I can't walk
But I know where I'm going to go
I'm going watch my money go
At the Locarno

When my feet go through the door
I know what my right arm is for
Buy a drink and pull a chair
Up to the edge of the dance floor

Bouncers bouncing through the night
Trying to stop or start a fight
I sit and watch the flashing lights
Moving legs in footless tights

I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning
I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning

I like to venture into town
I like to get a few drinks down
The floor gets packed the bar gets full
I don't like life when things get dull

The hen party have saved the night
And freed themselves from drunken stags
Having fun and dancing
In a circle round their leather bags

I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning
I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning

But two o'clock has come again
It's time to leave this paradise
Hope the chip shop isn't closed
Cos' their pies are really nice

I'll eat in the taxi queue
Standing in someone else's spew
Wish I had lipstick on my shirt
Instead of piss stains on my shoes

I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning
I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning

I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning
I go out on Friday night
And I come home on Saturday morning

Bande à part

The Killing Moon

( Echo & the bunnymen )

Mélanie Pain :

Under blue moon I saw you
So soon you’ll take me
Up in your arms
Too late to beg you or cancel it
Though I know it must be the killing time
Unwillingly mine

Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him

In starlit nights I saw you
So cruelly you kissed me
Your lips a magic world
Your sky all hung with jewels
The killing moon
Will come too soon

Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him

Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him

Under blue moon I saw you
So soon you’ll take me
Up in your arms
Too late to beg you or cancel it
Though I know it must be the killing time
Unwillingly mine
Unwillingly mine

Ever Fallen In Love

(The Buzzcocks)

Mélanie Pain :

You spurn my natural emotions
You make me feel like dirt
And I'm hurt
And if I start a commotion
I run the risk of losing you
And that's worse

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn't've fallen in love with

I can't see much of a future
Unless we find out what's to blame
What a shame (oh what a shame)
And we can't be together
Until we realize that we are the same

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn't've fallen in love with

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn't've fallen in love with

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn't've fallen in love with

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn't've fallen in love with

You disturb my natural emotions
You make me feel like dirt
And I'm hurt
And if I start a commotion
I'll only end up losing you
And that's worse

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn't've fallen in love with

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn't've fallen in love with

La la la la la la...

Dance with me

(Lords of the New Church)

Mélanie Pain :

Let's dance little stranger
Show me secret sins
Love can be like bondage
Seduce me once again

Burning like an angel
Who has heaven in reprieve
Burning like the voodoo man
With devils on his sleeve

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Like an apparition
You don't seem real at all
Like a premonition
Of curses on my soul

The way I want to love you
Well it could be against the law
I've seen you in a thousand minds
You've made the angels fall

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Come on little stranger
There's only one last dance
Soon the music's over
Let's give it one more chance

Won't you dance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Take a chance with me
In my world of fantasy
Won't you dance with me
Ritual fertility

Don't Go

(Yazoo)

Gerald Toto :

Came in from the city
Walked into the door
I turned around when I heard the sound
Of footsteps on the floor

Love just like addiction
Now I'm hooked on you
I need some time to get it right
Your love gonna see me through

Can't stop now don't you know
I ain't never gonna let you go
Don't go, don't go...

Baby make your mind up
Give me what you got
Fix me with your lovin'
Shut the door and turn the lock

Hey go get the doctor
Doctor came to late
Another night I feel alright
My love for you can't wait

Can't stop now don't you know
I ain't never gonna let you go
Don't go

Can't stop now don't you know
I ain't never gonna let you go
Don't go, don't go...

Came in from the city
Walked into the door
I turned around when I heard the sound
Of footsteps on the floor

Said he was a killer
Now I know it's true
I'm dead when you walk out the door
Hey babe I'm hooked on you, oh yeah

Can't stop now don't you know
I ain't never gonna let you go
Don't go, don't go...

Dancing With Myself

(Billy Idol)

Phoebe Killdeer :

On the floor of Tokyo
Or down in London town to go, go
With the record selection
With the mirror reflection
I'm dancing with myself

When there's no-one else in sight
In the crowded lonely night
Well I wait so long
For my love vibration
And I'm dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself

If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself

If I looked all over the world
And there's every type of girl
But your empty eyes
Seem to pass me by
Leave me dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think
If I had the chance
I'd ask the world to dance
And I'll be dancing with myself
I'll be dancing with myself

So let's sink another drink
'Cause it'll give me time to think

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself

Oh dancing with myself
Oh dancing with myself
Well there's nothing to lose
And there's nothing to prove
I'll be dancing with myself

Heart Of Glass

(Blondie)

Gerald Toto :

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Much to mistrust, love's gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Much to mistrust, love's gone behind

In between
What I find is pleasing and I'm feeling fine
Love is so confusing there's no peace of mind
If I fear I'm losing you it's just no good
You teasing like you do

Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Much to mistrust, love's gone behind

Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Much to mistrust, love's gone behind

Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I'm the one you're using, please don't push me aside
We could made it cruising, yeah

It's just no good
You teasing like you do

O Pamela

(The Wake)

Marina :

This a page from my diary
The fifteen day of November
This a page from my diary
What happened that day
I don't remember

But I do remember when
I wrote these words and then
And then reread them
Slowly to myself
Without emotion

And although the feelings changed
The words still sound the same
O Pamela
Tell everyone
Hang my head in shame
Take your name in vain
O Pamela
O Pamela

I have no soul
I'm as cold as December
Maybe twice as cold
And I'm as white as the snow
Because of my age
But my hand was shaking
As I wrote this page

And although the feelings changed
The words still sound the same
O Pamela
Tell everyone
Hang my head in shame
Take your name in vain
O Pamela
O Pamela you have everything
Everything you bargained for
Everything you worked for
Everything you would have killed for
Take everything

Open the door
I'll let the rain pour in
And first thing in the morning
The telephone rings
Pamela says
'Oh look at the time'
Believe me, that's the last thing on my mind
Will you take a walk with me in the sunshine
O Pamela, before it's too late
Will you take a walk with me by the ocean
O Pamela, before it's too late

Blue Monday

(New Order)

Mélanie Pain :

How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've your hands upon me
And told me who you are

I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel

Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They'll turn away no more

And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortune
I'd be a heavenly person today

And I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now, how should I feel

I thought I told you to leave me
While I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold
When your heart grows cold
When your heart grows cold

Human fly

(The Cramps)

Phoebe Tolmer :

Well i'm a human fly
it's spelt F-L-Y
I say buzz,buzz,buzz
And it's just because
I'm a human fly
And I don't know why
I got ninety six tears
In ninety six eyes

I got a garbage brain
It's drivin' me insane
And I don't like it
So I push that pesticide
And baby I don't care
'Cause baby I don't scare
'Cause I'm a reborn maggot using germ warfare
Ah Zzzzzzz...
Rockin'...

I'm a human fly
it's spelt F-L-Y
I say buzz,buzz,buzz
And it's just because
I'm a unzipped fly
And I don't know why
And i don't know but I say buzz

Human fly
it's spelt F-L-Y
I say buzz,buzz,buzz
And it's just because
I'm a human fly
And I don't know why
I got

Bela Lugosi's Dead

(Bauhaus)

Phoebe Tolmer :

White on white translucent black capes
Back on the rack
Bela Lugosi's dead
The bats have left the bell tower
The victims have been bled
Red velvet lines
The black box

Bela Lugosi's dead
Bela Lugosi's dead
Undead undead undead
Undead undead undead

The virginal brides
File past his tomb
Strewn with time's dead flowers
Bereft in deathly bloom
Alone in a darkened room
The count

Bela Lugosi's dead
Bela Lugosi's dead
Undead undead undead
Undead undead undead
Oh Bela...
Undead undead undead...

I Can't Escape Myself

(The Sounds)

Phoebe Tolmer :

So many feelings
End up in here
Left alone I'm with
Oh, an atmoshere

I'm sick and I'm tired
Of reasoning
Just want to break out
Kick off this skin

I can't escape myself

All my problems
Lume larger than life
I can swallow
Another slice

Seems like my shadow
Marks every strike
Cannot learn to live with
What stuck inside

I can't escape myself
I can't escape myself

So many feelings
End up in here
Left alone I'm with
Oh, an atmoshere

I'm sick and I'm tired
Of reasoning
Cannot learn to live with
Kick off this skin

I can't escape myself
I can't escape myself...

Let me go

(Heaven 17)

Silja :

Once there was a day
We were together all the way
An endless path unbroken

But now there is a time
A torture less sublime
Our souls are locked and frozen

Let me go...

I tried but could not bring
The best of everything
Too breathless then to wonder

I died a thousand times
Found guilty of no crime
Now everything is thunder

Daytime all I want is nighttime
All I want is nighttime
I don’t need the daytime

Once we were years ahead but now those thoughts are dead
Let me go
All hopeless fantasies are making fools of me
Let me go
I walk alone and yet I never say goodbye
Let me go
A change of heart a change of mind and heaven fell that night
Let me go

The best years of our lives
The hope of it survives
The facts of life unspoken

The only game in town
I’ll turn the last card down
And now the bank is broken

Fade To Grey

(Visage)

Marina :

One man on a lonely platform
One case sitting by his side
Two eyes staring cold and silent
Show fear as he turns to hide

Ah, we fade to grey
Ah, we fade to grey

Feel the rain like an English summer
Hear the notes from a distant song
Stepping out from a back shop poster
Wishing life wouldn't be so long
Un homme dans une gare isolée
Une valise a ses cotés
Des yeux fixes et froids
Montre de la peur lorsqu'il
Se tourne pour se cacher

Ah, we fade to grey
Sent la pluie comme un été Anglais
Entends les notes d'une chanson lointaine
Ah, we fade to grey
Sortant de derriere d'un poster
Espérant que la vie ne fut aussi longue

Waves

(Blancmange)

Marina :

Waves
And then goodbye
I live in a wafer thin dream
I, I can't cry
You know the time
Time's not kind

But I remember the way we were
The slow, slow sad love
I wonder do you miss my love
I know you can't
It's just a wave passing over me

What are these waves
They're coming over me
It must be my destiny

Waves
They're coming by
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Waves
They're coming by
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Master And Servant

( Depeche Mode cover )

Melanie Pain & Martin Gore :


There's a new game
We like to play you see
A game with added reality
You treat me like a dog
Get me down on my knees
We call it master and servant
We call it master and servant

It's a lot like life
This play between the sheets
With you on top and me underneath
Forget all about equality
Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant

It's a lot like life (it's a lot like life)
And that's what's appealing
If you despise that throwaway feeling (it's a lot like life)
From disposable fun
This is the one

Domination's the name of the game
In bed or in life
They're both just the same
Except in one you're fulfilled
At the end of the day
Let's play master and servant
Come on, let's play master and servant

It's a lot like life (it's a lot like life)
And that's what's appealing
If you despise that throwaway feeling (it's a lot like life)
From disposable fun
This is the one

Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant
Let's play master and servant

Come on
Come on master and servant
Come on
Master and servant
Come on

Blister in the Sun

( Violent Femmes cover )

Eloisia :

When I'm out walking I strut my stuff yeah I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite I just might stop to check you out

Let me go on
Like I blister in the sun
Let me go on
Big hands I know you're the one

Body and beats I stain my sheets I don't even know why
My girlfriend she's at the end she is starting to cry

Let me go on
Like I blister in the sun
Let me go on
Big hands I know you're the one

Body and beats I stain my sheets I don't even know why
My girlfriend she's at the end she is starting to cry

Let me go on
Like I blister in the sun
Let me go on
Big hands I know you're the one

Road To Nowhere

( Talking Heads cover )

Sandra Dee :


There's a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
And it's all right
And it's very far away
But it's growing day by day
And it's all right

Oh we're on a road to nowhere
Oh come on inside
Taking that ride to nowhere
Oh we'll take that ride

I'm feeling okay this morning
And you know
We're on the road to paradise
Here we go, here we go

We're on a road to nowhere
Oh come on inside
Taking that ride to nowhere
Oh we'll take that ride

Maybe you wonder where you are
I don't care
Oh here is where time is on our side
Take you there, take you there

There's a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
And it's all right
And it's very far away
But it's growing day by day
And it's all right

Would you like to come along
You can help me sing that song
And it's all right
They can tell you what to do
But they'll make a fool of you
And it's all right, it's all right

There's a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
And it's all right, it's all right
And it's very far away
But it's growing day by day
And it's all right, it's all right

Would you like to come along
You can help me sing that song
And it's all right
They can tell you what to do
But they'll make a fool of you
And it's all right, it's all right

Melanie Pain & Ian Mc Culloch :

Flying

You're trying
But you know you must soon go down
All my colours

The American

( Simple Minds cover )

Silja :

Here comes the shake
The speed-decade wake
I see you wake shake
Fit on those overalls
What do you know about this world anyway

I see a man
With an airfield plan
I caught a boy fall out of the sky
What do you know about this world anyway

Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American

Every time you touch this place
It feels like sin
Every time the handshake starts
The face draws in
What do you know about this world anyway

Here comes the sun
The American sun
In here the sun shines so bright
Eyes blind
What do you know about this world anyway

Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
Nassau club day
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American
In collective fame
Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-Ameri-American

Here comes the flag
I'm walking under the black
Here comes the flag
Handshake, this world
Here comes the flag
This world, handshake

Heaven

( The Psychedelic Furs cover )

Karina Zeviani :

Heaven
Is the whole of the heart
Heaven
Don't tear you apart
Heaven
Is the whole of the heart
Heaven
Don't tear you apart

There's too many kings
Wanna hold you down
And a world at the window
Gone underground

There's a hole in the sky
Where the sun don't shine
And a clock on the wall
And it counts my time

Heaven
Is the whole of the heart
Heaven
Don't tear you apart
Yeah, Heaven
Is the whole of the heart
Heaven
Don't tear you apart

There's a song on the air
with a love-you line
And a face in a glass
And it looks like mine

And I'm standing on ice when I say
That I don't hear planes
And I scream at the fools
Wanna jump my train

Heaven
Is the whole of the heart
Heaven
Don't tear you apart
Heaven
Is the whole of the heart
Heaven
Don't tear you apart

Parade

( Magazine cover )

Nadeah Miranda et Barry Adamson :

They will show me what I want to see
We will watch without grief
We stay one step ahead of relief
You tell me that we've been praying
For a bright and clever hell
I think we've been forced to our knees
But I can't tell

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position

It's so hot in here
What are they trying to hatch
We must not be frail, we must watch
Now that I'm out of touch with anger
Now I have nothing to live up to
I don't know when to stop joking
When I stop I hope I am with you

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position

What on earth is the size of my life

Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position
Sometimes I forget that we're supposed to be in love
Sometimes I forget my position

And my position is omewhere between a waitress and this table

Metal

( Gary Numan cover )

Eloisia :

We're in the building where they make us grow
I'm frightened when the liquid engineers
Like you

My mallory heart is sure to fail
I crawl around the floor just like I'm real
Like you

The sound of metal
I want to be you
I got to learn to be a man like you

Plug me in and turn me on
Oh, everything is moving

I need my treatment, tomorrow
They send me singing
"I am an American" do you

You can go and make the change
I'd love ??? do you

Who are you, and how can I try
Inside I like the metal don't you

All I know is no one dies
I'm still confusing love with needs

Ca plane pour moi

( Plastic Bertrand cover )

Leelou :

Wam! Bam!
Mon chat, Splash
Gît sur mon lit
A bouffé sa langue
En buvant trop mon whisky
Quant à moi
Peu dormi, vidé, brimé
J'ai dû dormir dans la gouttière
Où j'ai eu un flash

Hou ! Hou ! Hou ! Hou !
En quatre couleurs

Allez hop !
Un matin
Une louloute est venue chez-moi
Poupée de Cellophane
Cheveux chinois
Un sparadrap
Une gueule de bois
A bu ma bière
Dans un grand verre
En caoutchouc

Hou ! Hou ! Hou ! Hou !
Comme un indien dans son igloo

Ça plane pour moi, moi
Ça plane pour moi, moi
Ça, ça plane pour moi, moi
Ça plane pour moi, moi
Ça, ça plane pour moi, moi

Allez hop ! La nana
Quel panard !
Quelle vibration !
De s'envoyer sur le paillasson
Limée, ruinée, vidée, comblée
"You are the King of the divan"
Qu'elle me dit en passant

Hou ! Hou ! Hou ! Hou !
I am the King of the divan

Ça plane pour moi
Ça plane pour moi
Ça plane pour moi moi moi moi moi
Ça plane pour moi, moi
Hou ! Hou ! Hou ! Hou !
Ça plane pour moi

Allez hop !
T'occupe
T'inquiète
Touche pas ma planète
It's not today
Que le ciel me tombera sur la tête
Et que l'alcool me manquera
Hou ! Hou ! Hou ! Hou !
Ça plane pour moi

Allez hop ! ma nana
S'est tirée
S'est barrée
Enfin c'est marre, a tout cassé
L'évier, le bar me laissant seul
Comme un grand connard

Hou ! Hou ! Hou ! Hou !
Le pied dans le plat
Ça plane pour moi
Ça plane pour moi
Ça plane pour moi
Ça plane pour moi...

Life's going great for me

( Plastic Bertrand cover / Translation )

Leelou :

Wam! Bam!
My cat, Splash
Perched lies on my bed
Soaked up his tongue
By drinking too much of my whisky
As for me
No sleep, worn out, aggravated
I had to sleep in the gutter
Where I had a rush

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
In four colours

Ey up!
A morning
A dishy girl came over
Cellophane doll
Chinese hair
Surgical tape
A hangover
Drank my beer
Out a big glass
Made of rubber

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
Like an Indian in his igloo

Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me

Ey up! The chick
How great!
What a vibe!
To get off on the doormat
Tired out, wrecked, worn out, fulfilled
"You are the King of the divan"
She says while passing by

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
I am the King of the divan

Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me
Life's going great for me, me

Ey up!
Mind your business
Keep your nose out
Hands off my planet
It's not today
That the sky will fall on my head
And that I'll miss alcohol
Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
Life's going great for me

Ey up! My chick
Cleared off
Buggered off
Well it's a pain, broke everything
The sink, the bar leaving me on my own
Like a bloody idiot

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!
Really trodden in it
Life's going great for me
Life's going great for me
Life's going great for me
Life's going great for me

Our Lips Are Sealed

( The Go-Go's cover )

Marina Celeste & Terry Hall :

Can you hear them
Talking about us
Telling lies
Is that a surprise

Can you see them
See right through them
They have a shield
Nothing's been revealed

It doesn't matter what they say
No one listens anyway
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed

There's a weapon
That we can use
In our defense
Silence

We'll just look at them
Look right through them
That's when we'll disappear
That's when we'll lose the fear

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed

It doesn't matter what they say
In the jealous games people play
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed

Hush, my darling
Don't you cry
Quiet, angel
Forget their lies

Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed
Our lips are sealed

God Save The Queen

( Sex Pistols cover )

Melanie Pain :


God save the queen
The fascist regime
They made you a moron
Potential H-bomb

God save the queen
She ain't no human being
There is no future
In England's dreaming

Don't be told what you want
Don't be told what you need
There is no future
There is no future
There is no future for you

God save the queen
We mean it man
We love our queen
God saves

God save the queen
'Cause tourists are money
And our figurehead
Is not what she seems

When there's no future
How can there be sin
We're the flowers in the dustbin
We're the poison in your human machine
We're the future, your future

God save history
God save your mad parade
Oh Lord God have mercy
'Cause all crimes are paid

No future
No, no, no future
No, no future for me

No future
No, no future
No future for me

Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

( Soft Cell cover )

Sophie Delila :

Standing in the door of the Pink Flamingo
Crying in the rain
It was a kind of so so love
And I'm going to make sure
It never happens again

You and I had to be
The standing joke of the year
You were a sleep around
A lost and found
And not for me I fear

I tried to make it work
You in a cocktail skirt
And me in a suit
Well, it just wasn't me

You're used to wearing less
And now your life's a mess
So insecure, you see

I put up with all the scenes
And this is one scene
That's going to be played my way

Take your hands off me
I don't belong to you, you see
Take a look at my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello goodbye

Under the deep red light
I can see the makeup sliding down
Hey little girl, you will always make up
So take off that unbecoming frown

What about me, well, I'll find someone
That's not going cheap in the sales
A nice little housewife
Who'll give me a steady life
And won't keep going off the rails

Take your hands off me
I don't belong to you, you see
Take a look at my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello goodbye

We've been involved
For quite a while now
And to keep you secret has been hell
We're strangers meeting for the first time, okay
Just smile and say hello
Say hello then wave goodbye

Take your hands off me
I don't belong to you, you see
Take a look at my face
For the last time
I never knew you
You never knew me
Say hello goodbye

Then wave goodbye
Wave goodbye
Goodbye
Say hello
Then wave goodbye
Say, say hello
Say hello
Then wave goodbye

So Lonely

( The Police cover )

Nadeah Miranda :


Well, someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
You look as if you're going somewhere

But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart

So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

Now no one's knocked upon my door
For a thousand years or more
All made up and nowhere to go
Oh welcome to this one man show

Just take a seat, they're always free
Oh no surprise, no mystery
In this theatre that I call my soul
I always play the starring role
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

Voilà Les Anges

( Gamine Cover )

Cœur de pirate :

Voilà les anges ne s'arrêtent pas, ah ah non
Tourner tout au-dessus de moi
Qui perds la tête, ah ah ah

Voilà les anges ne s'arrêtent pas, ah ah
Voilà les anges ne s'arrêtent pas, ah ah non
Tourner tout au-dessus de moi
Qui perds la tête, ah ah ah
Voilà les anges, voilà les anges

La fille qui me tend les bras ne cherche pas, ah ah
La fille qui me tend les bras ne cherche pas, ah ah non
Et je me retrouve avec moi sur le chemin du non-retour

Voilà les anges, voilà les anges, ah ah ah
Voilà les anges, voilà les anges, ah ah ah

Voilà les anges ne s'arrêtent pas, ah ah
Voilà les anges ne s'arrêtent pas, ah ah
Voilà les anges ne s'arrêtent pas, ah ah

L’Aventurier

( Indochine Cover )

Helena Noguerra & Louis-Ronan Choisy :

Egaré dans la vallée infernale
Le héros s'appelle Bob Morane
À la recherche de l'Ombre Jaune
Le bandit s'appelle Mister Kali Jones
Avec l'ami Bill Ballantine
Sauvé de justesse des crocodiles
Stop au trafic des Caraïbes
Escale dans l'opération Nadawieb

Le cœur tendre dans le lit de Miss Clark
Prisonnière du Sultan de Jarawak
En pleine terreur à Manicouagan
Isolé dans la jungle birmane
Emprisonnant les flibustiers
L'ennemi est démasqué
On a volé le collier de Civa
Le Maharadjah en répondra

Et soudain surgit face au vent
Le vrai héros de tous les temps
Bob Morane contre tout chacal
L'aventurier contre tout guerrier

Bob Morane contre tout chacal
L'aventurier contre tout guerrier
Bob Morane contre tout chacal
L'aventurier contre tout guerrier

Dérivant à bord du sampan
L'aventurier au parfum d'Ylalang
Son surnom, Samouraï du Soleil
En démantelant le gang de l'Archipel
L'otage des guerriers du Doc Xhatan
Il s'en sortira toujours à temps
Tel l'aventurier solitaire
Bob Morane est le roi de la Terre

Et soudain surgit face au vent
Le vrai héros de tous les temps
Bob Morane contre tout chacal
L'aventurier contre tout guerrier

Bob Morane contre tout chacal
L'aventurier contre tout guerrier
Bob Morane contre tout chacal
L'aventurier contre tout guerrier
Contre tout guerrier

Week-End À Rome

( Etienne Daho Cover )

Vanessa Paradis :

Week-end à Rome
Tous les deux sans personne.
Florence, Milan, s'il y a le temps
Week-end rital

En bagnole de fortune
Variét' mélo à la radio
Week-end rital

Paris est sous la pluie
Bonheur, soupirs
Chanson pour rire
Chanson ritale
Hmm, chanson ritale pour une escale

Week-end à Rome
Afin de coincer la bulle dans ta bulle
Poser mon cœur bancal dans ton bocal
Ton aquarium

Une escapade à deux
La pluie m'assomme
L'gris m'empoisonne
Week-end à Rome

Pour la douceur de vivre
Et pour le fun, puisqu'on est jeunes
Week-end rital

Retrouver le sourire
J'préfère te dire
J'ai failli perdre mon sang-froid
Hmm, j'ai failli perdre mon sang-froid

Oh j'voudrais, j'voudrais
J'voudrais coincer la bulle dans ta bulle
Poser mon cœur bancal dans ton bocal
Ton aquarium

Il vento nei capelli
Cara, accelera e alza la radio
Hmm, la notte, la notte
Hmm, la notte, la notte

Hmm, chanson ritale pour une escale

Oh, j'voudrais tant
J'voudrais tant coincer la bulle dans ta bulle
Et traîner avec toi qui ne ressembles à personne

La notte, la notte, il vento nei capelli
La notte, la notte, cara
La notte, la notte, accelera e alza la radio
La notte, la notte
Hmm, la notte, la notte
La notte, la notte
Hmm, la notte, la notte
La notte, la notte
La notte, la notte

Putain, Putain

( TC Matic Cover )

Camille :

Je ne suis pas une communiste
Je ne suis pas une cycliste.
Je ne suis pas une footballiste

Allez, allez, circulez
Avec ton cul de pédé
J'aime les femmes, j'aime les garçons
Et comme j'ai déjà dit, j'aime les zizis

Putain, putain, c'est vachement bien
Nous sommes quand même tous des Européens
Putain, putain, c'est vachement bien
Nous sommes quand même tous des Européens

Trois, quatre
Il y a des gens qui parlent beaucoup
Mais ne disent rien du tout
Il y a des gens qui crèvent de faim

Jolie demoiselle, prends mes mains
Le samedi soir, tout le monde prend son bain
The rich may be rich, the poor may be poor
They all beat the shit off each other

Ne korte dikke stoot alles in stikken
Ne lange dunne doet deugd vanbinnen
'k heb een kleintje maar, 'k schiet verre

The rich may be rich, the poor may be poor
They all beat the shit off each other

Putain, putain, c'est vachement bien
Nous sommes quand même tous des Européens
Putain, putain, c'est vachement bien
Nous sommes quand même tous des Européens

Putain, putain, c'est vachement bien
Nous sommes quand même tous des Européens
Putain, putain, c'est vachement bien
Nous sommes quand même tous des Européens

Marcia Baila

( Rita Mitsouko Cover )

Adrienne Pauly :

Marcia, elle danse sur du satin, de la rayonne
Du polystyrène expansé à ses pieds

Marcia danse avec des jambes
Aiguisées comme des couperets
Deux flèches qui donnent des idées
Des sensations

Marcia, elle est maigre
Belle en scène, belle comme à la ville
La voir danser me transforme en excité

Moretto
Comme ta bouche
Est immense
Quand tu souris
Et quand tu ris
Je ris aussi
Tu aimes tellement la vie

Quel est donc ce froid que l'on sent en toi
Mais c'est la mort qui t'a assassinée, Marcia
C'est la mort qui t'a consumée, Marcia
C’est le cancer que tu as pris sous ton bras
Maintenant, tu es en cendres, en cendres

La mort, c'est comme une chose impossible
Et même à toi, qui es la vie même, Marcia
Et même à toi qui es forte comme une fusée
C'est la mort qui t'a emmenée

Marcia danse un peu chinois
La chaleur dans les mouvements d'épaules
A plat comme un hiéroglyphe inca
De l'opéra

Avec la tête elle danse aussi très bien
Et son visage danse avec tout le reste
Elle a cherché une nouvelle façon
Et l'a inventée

C'est elle, la sauterelle
La sirène en mal d'amour
Le danseur dans la flanelle
Ou le carton

Moretto
Comme ta bouche
Est immense
Quand tu souris
Et quand tu ris
Je ris aussi
Tu aimes tellement la vie

Quel est donc ce froid que l'on sent en toi
Mais c'est la mort qui t'a assassinée, Marcia
C'est la mort qui t'a consumée, Marcia
C’est le cancer que tu as pris sous ton bras
Maintenant, tu es en cendres, en cendres

La mort, c'est comme une chose impossible
Et même à toi, qui es la vie même, Marcia
Et même à toi qui es forte comme une fusée
C'est la mort qui t'a emmenée

Anne Cherchait L'Amour

( Elli & Jacno Cover )

Julien Doré :

Je n'ai eu le temps de t'aimer
Il n'y a rien à faire oublier
Juste tes yeux tristes dans mes cheveux, le soir

Je n'ai eu le temps de t'aimer
Il n'y a rien à faire oublier
Juste tes yeux tristes dans mes cheveux, le soir.

J'aurais pu être la première
T'aimer, te faire souffrir

Je n'ai eu le temps de t'aimer
Tu voulais te briser en moi.
J'aurais dû te revoir pour toi

J'aurais pu être la première
T'aimer, te faire souffrir

Ophélie

( Jad Wio Cover )

Yelle :

Je suis descendu au buffet
D'une petite gare isolée
Et au garçon ai demandé
Un truc à voir en particulier

Une sorte d'attraction équestre
Un spectacle porté sur le sexe
Un show tout à fait insensé
Exceptionnel et prohibé

Un homme au complet tout fripé
Menant par la queue son mulet
Proposait de nous exhiber
De belles filles bon marché

Le visage des hommes aux aguets
Les filles riaient, se trémoussaient
"Allons, Messieurs, il faut payer
Veuillez allonger la monnaie"

Lentement, elle s'avança
L'embrassa, le caressa
Accroupie sous le dada
L'animal aime ça

Ophélie est zoophile
Pour moi comprendre est difficile
Je le vois à son battement d' cils
Cette fille fonctionne à piles

Les hommes autour se déchaînaient:
"Plus vite, à poil !" ils s'écriaient
Et puis, n'y pouvant plus tenir
Joignant la fille de s'accomplir

La fille d'huile s'enduisit
Et, encouragée par les cris,
Noua ses jambes autour de lui
Ce geste-là n'a pas de prix

Et l'homme au complet tout fripé
Menant par la queue son mulet
"Allons, Messieurs, il faut payer
Veuillez allonger la monnaie"

Une sorte d'attraction équestre
Un spectacle porté sur le sexe
Un show tout à fait insensé
Exceptionnel et prohibé

Lentement, elle s'avança
L'embrassa, le caressa
Accroupie sous le dada
L'animal aime ça

Ophélie est zoophile
Pour moi comprendre est difficile
Je le vois à son battement d' cils
Cette fille fonctionne à piles

Lentement, elle s'avança
L'embrassa, le caressa
Accroupie sous le dada
L'animal aime ça

Ophélie est zoophile
Pour moi comprendre est difficile
Je le vois à son battement d' cils
Cette fille fonctionne à piles

You're just someone so young but so cold
And none of this is in your control
Bad boys is what you're in for
And now you just start to be lonely

And one is that you want to be free
And nothing is that you want to be
Well do so, I'm glad you've done something right
But I've heard this song before and I say

Oh, so young but so cold
Oh-oh, so young but so old

You spend your lonely nights
With any boy who gives you money
You say: "It's done I don't care"
But the change is only your body
And there I go coming in and out and it's just too much now
And the lights are chinking in and out
I've heard it's gonna mend. Say

Oh, so young but so cold
Oh-oh, so young but so old
Oh, so young but so cold
Oh-oh, so young but so old

That's amazing that you wanna be like
Here's a Queen and you're all I want to do right
And I know just what it's gonna be like
'cause you won't believe in yourself

You can tell them anything
But who says that they'll listen
Another lie is just the same
And I won't take any more

Oh, so young but so cold
Oh-oh, so young but so old
Oh, so young but so cold
Oh-oh, so young but so cold, so young but so cold...

Sandy Sandy

( Dogs Cover)

Soko :

Oh Sandy Sandy
Funny Sandy, oh
My Sandy Sandy
Can you tell me tell me why
Do I feel so wild inside
Can you tell me tell me why
Do you mean so much to me

Tell me what's behind your smile
Tell me what it is
What's behind your eyes staring at me
Tell me how you feel
Don't put me down down down

I need so much and I'm scared of
Losing you now
Sometimes I'd like to be the first to leave
Oh tell me what's behind your smile
Tell me what it means
I'm sure that someday you'll deceive me
Oh tell me how you feel
Don't put me down down down

Oh Sandy Sandy
Funny Sandy, oh
My Sandy Sandy
Can you tell me tell me
Tell me what's behind your smile
Tell me what it is
What's behind your eyes staring at me
Oh tell me how you feel
Don't put me down down down

I need so much and I'm scared of
Losing you now
Sometimes I'd like to be the first to leave
Tell me what's behind your smile
Tell me what it means
I'm sure that someday you'll deceive me

Looking right into your eyes
The answer is still untold
Looking right into your eyes
The answer is still untold
Looking right into your eyes
The answer is still untold

Mala Vida

( La Mano Negra )

Olivia Ruiz :

Tú me estás dando mala vida, yo pronto me voy a escapar
Gitana mía, por lo menos, date cuenta, gitana mía, por favor
No me dejas ni respirar, tú me estás dando mala vida

Cada día, se la traga mi corazón, dime tú porque te trato yo tan bien
Cuando tú me hablas como a un cabrón, gitana mía
Mi corazoncito está sufriendo, gitana mía, por favor
Sufriendo malnutrición, me estás dando mala vida, mi corazón

Tú me estás dando mala vida, yo pronto me voy a escapar
Gitana mía, por lo menos, date cuenta, gitana mía, por favor
No me dejas ni respirar, tú me estás dando mala vida

Cada día, se la traga mi corazón, dime tú porque te trato yo tan bien
Cuando tú me hablas como a un cabrón, gitana mía
Mi corazoncito está sufriendo, gitana mía, por favor
Sufriendo malnutrición, me estás dando mala vida, mi corazón

Mala vida, yo pronto me voy a escapar
Gitana mía, por lo menos, date cuenta, gitana mía, por favor
No me dejas ni respirar, tú me estás dando mala vida, mi corazón
Mi corazón, mi corazón

Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde

( Noir Désir Cover )

Emily Loizeau :

Tu veux pas parler
Tu veux pas que je l'dise
Tout reste encore
Indéterminé

Oh mais rappelle toi Barbara
Que tu ne t'appelles pas comme ça
Ça peut servir
Pour les souvenirs

Mais elle veut pas qu'on la touche
Elle veut même pas qu'on la voie
Mais y'a que toi là !
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde

Elle a changé d'angle
Et étend ses jambes
Interminables
Comme un jour sans nuit

Et j'ai tremblé c'est un signe
Je ne resterai pas digne
Les cas extrême
Sont toujours les mêmes

Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde

Dans ton océan lacrymal
Tout n'a pas l'air d'être sans mal
Et moi qui plonge
J'sais même pas nager

On ira dans tous les déserts
On ira danser sous les mers
Et on verra pourrir nos yeux tendres
Sous les lumières blanches

Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde
Où veux-tu qu'je r'garde

Amoureux Solitaires

( Lio Cover )

Hugh Coltman :

Hé toi, dis-moi que tu m'aimes
Même si c'est un mensonge
Et on n'a pas une chance
La vie est si triste
Dis-moi que tu m'aimes
Tous les jours sont les mêmes
J'ai besoin de romance

Un peu de beauté plastique pour effacer nos cernes
De plaisir chimique pour nos cerveaux trop ternes
Que nos vies aient l'air d'un film parfait, yeah

Hé toi, dis-moi que tu m'aimes
Même si c'est un mensonge, puisque je sais que tu mens
La vie est si triste, dis-moi que tu m'aimes
Oublions tout, nous-mêmes, ce que nous sommes vraiment

Amoureux solitaires dans une ville morte.
Amoureux imaginaires, après tout, qu'importe
Que nos vies aient l'air d'un film parfait

Two People In A Room

( Stephen Eicher Cover )

Cocoon :

I put my feelings in a spoon
Try to carry them to the moon
Spill my love these tears from above
The wound cut down to the bone
Leave me, leave me all alone
'Cause her knife was too sharp
Her knife was too sharp
Then I met you, you took away my blues
But I don't wanna fall in love with you
'Cause one day, one day, I sing the same sad song for you

Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart
You're all I need tonight, at least we've got a start
Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart

I look at you, you look back at me
I can see you're lonesome, just like me
And here they come, these waves of fear
One day, one day, I sing the same sad song for you
One day, one day, I sing the same sad song for you

Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart
You're all I need tonight, at least we've got a start
Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart

Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart
You're all I need tonight, at least we've got a start
Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart

One day, one day, I sing the same sad song for you

Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart
You're all I need tonight, at least we've got a start
Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart

Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart
You're all I need tonight, at least we've got a start
Two people in a room, two pieces of my heart

Sur Ma Mob

( Lili Drop Cover )

Mareva Galanter :

André c'est le coursier
Dans une grosse boîte à blé
Y a des jours, l'a pas le moral
Des jours où tout va mal

Suzette c'est la minette
Qui s'en va au lycée
L'est bien jolie, sa mobylette
L'emmènerais bien danser

Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Je suis bien et je chante
Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Et ces connes de bagnoles sont folles de rage

Hubert c'est le fonctionnaire
À cheval sur sa pétrolette
Oh il a l'air drôlement fier
Et sur sa mob, il en jette

Quant à Jojo c'est le métalo
Le soir, après son boulot
Il astique sa bécane
Et va draguer les dames dans son lit

Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Je suis bien et je chante
Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Et ces connes de bagnoles sont folles de rage

Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Je suis bien et je chante
Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Et ces connes de bagnoles sont folles de rage

Oh sur ma mob, ça va mal
Coincé entre deux camions, j'avale
Hmm cavalier noir du macadam
Il fait froid, je bouge et je tremble

Hmm c'est moi le cow-boy
À cheval sur la ligne blanche
C'est moi le gardien des vaches de couleur

Champs Élysées
Oh il fait beau, c'est soleil
Champs Élysées
Le feu rouge
Champs Élysées
On se regarde avec des yeux tout ronds
Champs Élysées
Embaumé seul dans ta caisse
Champs Élysées
J'ai envie de mordre ta cuisse épaisse
Champs Élysées
Oh ton regard de vache attachant
Champs Élysées
J'ai envie d'y planter mes dents
Champs Élysées

Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Je suis bien et je chante
Sur ma mob, je suis bien
Et ces connes de bagnoles sont folles de rage

Déréglée

( Marie-France )

Mélanie Pain :

Ta petite chérie ne veut pas ce soir
Parce qu’elle est réglée
Alors tu viens me voir
Tu sais que je ne suis qu’une déréglée

Je suis gentille
Je suce des réglisses
Je suis méchante
Je prends des raclées
Comment vous me considérez glisse
Sur mon indifférence, déréglée

Tous les mâles le savent
Ils connaissent le chemin
Et ils ont la clé
Pour eux c'est pas grave
Après tout je ne suis qu'une déréglée

Je suis gentille
Je suce des réglisses
Je suis méchante
Je prends des raclées
Comment vous me considérez glisse
Sur mon indifférence, je suis déréglée

Alors n'aie pas peur
Viens me voir un quart d'heure
Tu seras comblé
Tu sais qu'j'suis ton amie
Du moment que t'oublies
Pas de me régler

Ta petite chérie ne veut pas ce soir
Parce qu’elle est réglée
Alors tu viens me voir
Tu sais que je ne suis qu’une déréglée

Je suis gentille
Je suce des réglisses
Je suis méchante
Je prends des raclées
Comment vous me considérez glisse
Sur mon indifférence, je suis déréglée

Je suis gentille
Je suce des réglisses
Je suis méchante
Je prends des raclées
Comment vous me considérez glisse
Sur mon indifférence

Je suis gentille
Je suis méchante
Gentille
Méchante
Je suis gentille

Je Suis Déjà Parti

( Taxi Girl )

Coralie Clément :

Je suis déjà parti
Fais comme si tu
Ne m'avais jamais connu
Tout est foutu

Je suis déjà parti
Fais comme si tu
Ne m'avais jamais connu
Tout est foutu

Et si tu m'entends
Le soir quelques fois
Éteint la radio
Fais comme si tu n'entendais pas

Les meilleures choses ont une fin
Et puis aussi tu comprends bien
Dans ces conditions que je m'en aille
Je suis déjà si loin

Je suis déjà parti
Fais comme si tu
Ne m'avais jamais connu
Tout est foutu

Si tu crois me voir
Un soir quelques fois
Éteins la télé
Fais comme si tu ne voyais pas

Les meilleures choses ont une fin
Et puis aussi tu comprends bien
Dans ces conditions que je m'en aille
Je suis déjà trop loin

Je suis déjà parti
Fais comme si tu
Ne m'avais jamais connu
Tout est foutu

Je suis déjà parti
Je suis déjà parti
Tout est foutu
Je suis déjà parti
Je suis déjà parti

Oublions L'Amérique

( Wunderbach Cover )

Nadeah Miranda :


Oublions l'Amérique et son Coca-Cola
Son président fasciste et son impérialisme
T'as pris tout ce qu'il y avait de bon là-bas en Amérique
Marylin, le rock, la cocaïne et les sodas

Et moi je veux voir leurs missiles atomiques
Leurs danses, de leur disco, et leurs putains d'ordinateurs
John Wayne était un faf qui chassait les sorcières
Fini le rodéo, la danse du scalp, vive le pogo

Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique
Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique

Oublions l'Amérique contre les fanatiques
Fini les bons ricains contre les méchants rouges
Bien sûr il y a Cuba et puis l'Afghanistan
Mais ils ont aussi la Chine et puis le Vietnam

Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique
Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique

Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique
Oublions l'Amérique, oublions l'Amérique

Les ailes de verre

( Marc Seberg Cover )

Jeanne Cherhal :

L'iris clair
Les yeux immensément ouverts
Deux papillons sous verre
Au plafond la lumière des néons vacillait
La lumière vacillait

Elle s'enfermait des siècles dans des pièces obscures
Pour s'éblouir d'un rayon de soleil le plus pur
Elle disait que les anges avaient bien trop de chance
Elle disait que les anges dérivent au gré du vent

Deux ailes de verre
Mais les ailes volontairement liées
Par la trame serrée
D'une aquarelle en demi tons pastels
Les demi teintes tièdes qui l'enrobaient
Dans la claire obscurité

Elle s'enfermait des siècles dans des pièces obscures
Pour s'éblouir d'un rayon de soleil le plus pur
Elle disait que les anges avaient bien trop de chance
Elle disait que les anges
Mais je l'aimais tellement

Mais je jure devant Dieu
J'ai essayé, essayé de mon tout petit mieux
J'ai peint sa chambre en bleu
Mais trop légère dans l'entrelacs cruel
Les demi teintes tièdes qui l'enrobaient
Dans la claire obscurité

Elle s'enfermait des siècles dans des pièces obscures
Pour s'éblouir d'un rayon de soleil le plus pur
Elle disait que les anges avaient bien trop de chance
Elle disait que les anges...
Et je l'aimais tellement

Alors elle prit un morceau de ciel
Près du lit un arc-en-ciel
Pour sourire tout à fait
Pour s'ouvrir tout entièrement
M'enfoncer en elle
Et s'enfuir
A tire d'ailes
Sortir d'elle

Plus légère que l'air
Sur une terre étrangère
Et je suis resté là
Sans rien dire
Sans rien faire
Sans rien faire

Aussi Belle Qu'Une Balle

(Taxi Girl cover / 3 LP UK Limited Edition)

Jenia Lubitch:


Elle est si belle qu'il est difficile
Aussi belle qu'une balle
De ne pas se pencher pour la regarder
Aussi belle qu'une balle
Et moi je n'attends qu'elle
Oui mais autant vouloir se tuer
Dans son lit couché en espérant une balle perdue

Juste une belle perdue qui marche dans les rues
Son cœur n'attend plus
Rien qu'une balle perdue

Juste une belle perdue qui marche dans les rues
Son cœur n'attend plus
Rien qu'une balle perdue

Elle est si belle à sa fenêtre penchée
Aussi belle qu'une balle
Il serait délicat de ne pas tomber
Aussi belle qu'une balle
Et moi je n'attends qu'elle
Oui mais autant vouloir se tuer
Dans son lit couché en espérant une balle perdue

Juste une belle perdue qui marche dans les rues
Son cœur n'attend plus
Rien qu'une balle perdue

Juste une belle perdue qui marche dans les rues
Son cœur n'attend plus
Rien qu'une balle perdue

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Bizarre love triangle

(New Order / Live)

Every time I think of you
I got a shot right through with a bolt of blue
It's no problem of mine
And it's a problem I find
Living a life that I can't leave behind

There's no sense in telling me
The wisdom of a fool won't set you free
But that's the way that it goes
And that's what nobody knows
Well, every day my confusion grows

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You'll say the word that I can't say

I feel fine and I feel good
I feel like I never should
Whatever I get this way
I just don't know what to say
Why can't we be like we were yesterday

I'm not sure what this could mean
(Every time I see you falling)
I don't think you show me what you seem
(I get down on my knees and pray)
I do admit to myself that if I hurt someone else
(I'm waiting for that final moment)
You'll never see like it was meant to be
(You'll say those things that I won't show)

Every time I see you falling
I get down on my knees and pray
I'm waiting for that final moment
You'll say the words that I can't say

Every time I see you falling
(I feel fine and I feel good)
I get down on my knees and pray
(I feel like I never should)
I'm waiting for that final moment
(Whatever I get this way I just don't know what to say)
You'll say the words that I can't say, I can't say
(Why can't we be like we were yesterday)

I feel fine and I feel good
(Every time I see you falling)
I feel like I never should
(I get down on my knees and pray, and pray)
I will say what you say
(I'm waiting for that final moment)
Why can't we be like we were yesterday
(You'll say the words that I can't say)

You'll say the words that I can't say
You'll say the words that I can't say
You'll say the words that I can't say
You'll say the words that I can't say

Come On Eileen

( Dexy's Midnight Runners cover / Late Night Tales LP )

Sandra n Kake :

Poor old Johnny Ray
Sounded sad upon the radio
He moved a million hearts in mono
Our mothers cried
Sang along and who'd blame them
You've grown, so grown
Now I must say more than ever

Toora Loora, Toora Loo-Rye-Aye
We can sing just like our fathers

Come on Eileen
Oh I swear what I mean
At this moment you mean everything
You in that dress
Oh my thoughts I confess verge on dirty
Oh come on Eileen

These people round here
Wear beaten down eyes sunk in smoke dried faces
So resigned to what their fate is
But not us, no, not us
We are far too young and clever

Toora Loora, Toora Loo-Rye-Aye
Eileen, I'll hum this tune forever

Come on Eileen
Oh I swear what I mean
At this moment you mean everything
You in that dress
My thoughts I confess verge on dirty
Oh come on Eileen

Come on Eileen
Oh I swear what I mean
At this moment
Oh come on Eileen

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Confusion

( Bande à Part LP Limited US Ed. / New Order )

Mélanie Pain :

You just can't believe me
When I show you what you mean to me
You just can't believe me
When I show you what you cannot see

You're hiding from feelings, searching for more
Sharing and hoping, untouched for so long
Our lives still change from the way that we were
And now I'll tell you something I think you should know
You just can't believe me
When I show you what you mean to me
You just can't believe me
When I show you what you cannot see

You cause me confusion, you told me you cared
He's calling these changes that last to the end
Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies
The past is your present, the future is mine
You just can't believe me
When I show you what you mean to me
You just can't believe me
When I show you what you cannot see

You tell me you need me, I'll make it this time
The thread won't divide us, the sensation survives
I was sure that I told you it was good from the face
You've caused me some problems, you've taken my place

Why can't you see what you mean to me

*** Thanx a lot to Carsten for this one ***

( Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark Cover / 3 LP Bonus Track )

Mélanie Pain :

Enola Gay
You should have stayed at home yesterday
Oh words can't describe
The feeling and the way you lied

These games you play
They're gonna end in more than tears someday
Oh Enola Gay
It shouldn't ever have to end this way

It's 8:15
And that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio
Conditions normal and you're coming home

Enola Gay
Is mother proud of little boy today
Oh this kiss you give
It's never ever gonna fade away

It's 8:15
And that's the time that it's always been
We got your message on the radio
Conditions normal and you're coming home

Oh this kiss you give
It's never ever gonna fade away

Get A Grip On Yourself

( The Stranglers Cover / 3 LP Bonus Track )

Nadeah Miranda :


Didn't have the money round to buy a Morry Thou
I've been around and seen a lot to shake me anyhow
I'm begged and borrowed sometimes I admit I even stole
But the worst crime that I ever did was play some rock and roll

But the money's not good
So just get a grip on yourself
I said the money's not good
Ah so just get a grip on yourself

You know I've been suffering convictions on a two-way stretch inside
The air in here is pretty thin, I think I'll go outside
Commited for insanity and crimes against the soul
Oh the worst crime that I ever did was play some rock and roll

But the money's not good
So just get a grip on yourself
I said the money's not good
Oh so just get a grip on yourself
And you should know

Grip on yourself
Just get a grip on yourself
Grip on yourself

Now I find from week to week the sentence sticking fast
Turn the corner, rub my eyes and hope the world will last
Stranger from another planet welcome to our hole
Just strap on your guitar and we'll play some rock and roll

But the money's not good
So just get a grip on yourself
I said the money's not good
Ah so just get a grip on yourself
And you should know

Grip on yourself
Grip on yourself
Just get a grip on yourself...

Grey Day

( Madness cover / Aula Magna 07.12.07 LP )

When I get home, it's late at night
I'm black and bloody from my life
I haven't time to clean my hands
Cuts will only sting me through my dreams

It's well past midnight as I lie
In a semi-conscious state
I dream of people passing me
Without any reason I can see

In the morning I awake
My arms, my legs, my body aches
The sky outside is wet and grey
So begins another weary day
So begins another weary day

After eating, I go out
People passing by me shout
I can't stand this agony
Why won't they talk to me

In the park I have to rest
I lie down and I do my best
The rain is falling on my face
I wish I could sink without a trace

In the morning I awake
My arms, my legs, my body aches
The sky outside is wet and grey
So begins another weary day
So begins another weary day

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

I'm Stranded

( The Saints Cover feat. Chris Bailey / 3 LP Bonus Track )

Like a snake calling on the phone
I've got no time to be alone
There is someone coming at me all the time
And babe I think I'll lose my mind

'Cause I'm stranded on my own
Stranded so far from home

I'm riding on a midnight train
And everybody looks just the same
A subway light it's dirty reflection
I'm lost now I don't have no direction

I'm stranded on my own
Stranded so far from home

I'm stranded
Yeah I'm so far from home
Stranded
You know I'm on my own
Stranded
You got to leave me alone
'Cause I'm stranded on my own
Stranded so far from home

Look at me, looking at you
You know there's not a thing that I can do
You're lost your mind is a whirl
Hey baby you're such a stupid girl

I'm stranded
We're living in a world insane
Stranded
They cut out some heart and some brain
Stranded
Been filling it up with dirt
Stranded
You don't know how much it hurts
To be stranded on your own
To be stranded so far from home

Israel

( Siouxsie And The Banshees / Bande à Part LP Limited Edition )

Gérald Toto :

Little orphans in the snow
With nowhere to call a home
Start their singing, singing

Waiting through the summertime
To thaw your hearts in wintertime
That's why they're singing, singing

Waiting for a sig
To turn blood into wine
The sweet taste in your mouth
Turned bitter in its glass

Israel, in Israel
Israel, in Israel

Shattered fragments of the past
Meet in veins on the stained glass
Like the lifeline in your palm

Red and green reflects the scene
Of a long forgotten dream
There were princesses and there were kings

Now hidden in disguise
Cheap wrappings of lies
Keep your heart alive
With a song from inside

Israel, in Israel
Israel, in Israel

There's a man who's looking in
And he smiles a toothless grin
Because he's singing, singing

See some people shine with glee
But their song is jealousy
Their hate is clanging, maddening

In Israel
Will they sing Happy Noel
In Israel, in Israel

In Israel, in Israel
In Israel
Will they sing Happy Noel

Israel, Israel...

*** Thanx a lot to Vilchjo for this one ***

Johnny And Mary

( Robert Palmer Cover / 3 LP Bonus Track )

Ania :


Johnny's always runnin' around
Tryin' to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm
That he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
Knows he tires easily

Johnny thinks the world would be right
If it could buy the truth from him
Mary says
"He changes his mind more than a woman"
But she made her bed
Even when the chance was slim

Johnny says, "He's willing to learn
When he decides, he's a fool"
Johnny says' "He'll live anywhere
When he earns time to"
Mary combs her hair
Says, "She should be used to it"

Mary always hedges her bets
She never knows what to think
She says that he still acts
Like he is being discovered
Scared that he'll be caught
Without a second thought

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath
Tryin' to talk sense to her
Mary says, "He's lackin' a real
Sense of proportion"
So she combs her hair
Knows he tires easily

Johnny's always runnin' around
Runnin' around
Johnny's always runnin' around
Runnin' around

Johnny's always runnin' around
Runnin' around
Johnny's always runnin' around
Runnin' around

Lalala

( Nouvelle Vague feat. Julie Delpy / 2 days in Paris Ost )

I wanna dance like we used to
When it was pure when it was new
Love me whole like I love you
Wanna be freed but free with you

I wanna dance like we used to
And not worry about you and me
We're gonna die of global warming
Or avian flu or quitting smoking

I want to stay for a while
Until it's time to let go
I'd like to really take my time
Explore all that comes to mind

I'd like to dance like we used to
Before the new world order rules
Don't wanna do what others do
Let's pretend there's no rules

I wanna dance like we used to
We're so lucky and so spoiled
You and I are such futile jobs
Let's stop acting like kings and queens

I want to stay for a while
Until it's time to let go
I'd like to really take my time
Explore all that comes to mind

Je veux danser, comme on dansait
Quand tout était si doux et frais
Aime moi tout comme je t'aime toi
Je veux être libre mais libre avec toi

Je veux danser, comme on dansait
Sans s'inquieter de toi et moi
Nous sommes gâtés, nous sommes pourris
Nos occupations si futiles

La la la la la...

Marooned

( Wire Cover / 3 LP Bonus Track )

Jenia Lubich :


An unwilling sailor adrift from Artic waters
As the water gets warmer, my iceburg gets smaller
As he pours more petrol on, he feels no fear
As the flames get nearer, its thought gets clearer

A blue-white polar bear arrives at the end
Diverting his attention, his feelings froze over
I'm only a runaway AWOL at the logical start
Not present in the present, overboard with limited future, future

And he's standing alone still getting a thrill
While the ship is afloat, he's losing his boat

Mexican Radio

( Wall Of Voodoo cover / Live 2006 )

I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
And the touch of a world that is older
I turn the switch and check the number
I leave it on when in bed I slumber

I hear the rhythms of the music
I buy the product and never use it
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican, whoah, radio
Yeah

I dial it in and tune the station
They talk about the U.S. inflation
I understand just a little
No comprende, it's a riddle

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican (I'm on a Mexican), whoah, radio
What does he say, what does he say
I'm on a Mexican (I'm on a Mexican), whoah, radio
What does he say, what does he say
I'm on a Mexican (I'm on a Mexican), whoah, radio

I wish I was in Tijuana
Eating barbequed iguana
I'd take requests on the telephone
I'm on a wavelength far from home

I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
I dial it in from south of the border
I hear the talking of the DJ
Can't understand just what does he say

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican, whoah, radio
What does he say, what does he say
I'm on a Mexican, whoah, radio
What does he say, what does he say
I'm on a Mexican, I'm on a Mexican radio
What does he say

Mongoloid

( Devo - Live cover )

Mongoloid he was a mongoloid
Happier than you and me
Mongoloid he was a mongoloid
And it determined what he could see
Mongoloid he was a mongoloid
One chromosome too many
Mongoloid he was a mongoloid
And it determined what he could see

And he wore a hat
And he had a job
And he brought home the bacon
So that no one knew
Mongoloid he was a mongoloid
His friends were unaware
Mongoloid he was a mongoloid
Nobody even cared

Moody

( ESG cover / Bande À Part US Limited Edition LP )

Gérald Toto :

I'm feeling very mellow
Walking down the street
You see, I'm gonna see my baby
And it make me feel moody
Like this...

Moody
Moody, moody, moody
Moody
Moody, moody, moody

Can go to see your baby
Can make you feel moody
Can make you feel high, feel low
Feeling, feel like, like this...

Moody
Moody, moody, moody
Moody
Moody, moody, moody

Ba da ba da...

Moody
Moody, moody, moody
Moody
Moody, moody, moody
Moody, moody, moody
Moody, moody, moody
Moody, moody, moody

Not Knowing

(Minimal Compact cover / 3 LP UK Limited Edition)

Phoebe Killdeer:


Watching different roads
And wonder where my own is rolling
Waiting all day long
For a change and it's not showing

All those moments days and years
Left me standing here not knowing
All these people everywhere
Kept me waiting and not knowing

All those moments days and years
Left me standing here not knowing
All these people everywhere
Kept me waiting and not knowing

Holding to myself
Fear is all that kept me going
Waiting all day long
For a change and it's not showing

All those moments days and years
Left me standing here not knowing
All these people everywhere
Kept me waiting and not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing

All those moments days and years
Left me standing here not knowing
All these people everywhere
Kept me waiting and not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing
Not knowing

One Hundred Years

(The Cure cover / Live at Radio FM 02-02-09)

It doesn't matter if we all die
Ambition in the back of a black car
In a high building there is so much to do
I'm going home time
A story on the radio

Something small falls out of your mouth
And we laugh
A prayer for something better
A prayer for something better

Please love me
Meet my mother
But the fear takes hold
Creeping up the stairs in the dark
Waiting for the death blow
Waiting for the death blow
Waiting for the death blow

Caressing an old man
And painting a lifeless face
Just a piece of new meat in a clean room
The soldiers close in under a yellow moon
All shadows and deliverance
Under a black flag

One hundred years of blood and crimson
The ribbon tightens round my throat
I open my mouth and my head bursts open
I feel like a tiger thrashing in the water
Thrashing in the water

Over and over
We die one after the other
Over and over
We die one after the other
One after the other
One after the other
One after the other
One after the other

It feels like one hundred years
One hundred years
One hundred years
One hundred years
One hundred years
One hundred years

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Pride

( U2 cover / Bande À Part US Limited Edition LP )

Birdpaula :

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One man come, he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

Early morning, April four
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Sex Beat

( The Gun Club Cover / Live )

Johnny's got a light in his eyes
And Shirley's got a light on her lips
Jakes got a monkeyshine on his head
And Debra Ann's got a tiger in her hips

They can twist and turn they can move and burn
They can throw themselves against the wall
But they creep for what they need
And they explode to the call and then we move yeah
I say we move yeah

They're stupid like I told ya, very stupid like ya saw
Very stupid as the simple thought of ever thinking at all
And all their mind, all their souls all their bodies all we know
All we know all the things that should a made us whole
All the colourless security was all that we could go
So we move yeah
I say we move yeah
I say they move, move, move move move
Sex beat, drop

And every day I agree you throw me down by the christmas tree
I watched your lights blink on and off while you start your fun with me
And I, I know your reasons and I, I know your goals
We can fuck forever but you will never get my soul

You move, yeah
I say we move yeah
I say we move, move, move move move
Sex beat, go...

Sorry For Laughing

( Propaganda cover / Nouvelle vague LP Limited Edition )

It took ten years to realize
Why the angel stopped crying
When you sail on down the lane
Your happy smile, your funny name
I just don't mean the things that I say
It's only 'cause you're made that way

Sorry for laughing
There's too much happening
Sorry for laughing
There's too much happening

When we grooved on into town
Charles Atlas stopped to frown
'Cause he's not made like me and you
Just can't do the things we do
I'm not being mean, so don't take it hard
When I ask you to run round the yard

Sorry for laughing
There's too much happening
Sorry for laughing
There's too much happening

Sorry for laughing
There's too much happening
Sorry for laughing
There's too much happening

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Such A Shame

(Talk Talk cover / 3 LP UK Limited Edition)

Sophie Delila:

Such a shame to believe in escape
'A life on every face'
And that's a change
Till I'm finally left with an eight
Tell me to relax, I just stare
Maybe I don't know if I should change
A feeling that we share

It's a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame
Number me in haste
Such a shame
This eagerness to change
It's a shame

The dice decide my fate
And that's a shame
In these trembling hands my faith
Tells me to react, 'I don't care'
Maybe it's unkind that I should change
A feeling that we share

It's a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame
Number me in haste
Such a shame
This eagerness to change
It's a shame

Tell me to relax, I just stare
Maybe I don't know if I should change
A feeling that we share

It's a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame
Number me in haste
It's such a shame
Write it across my name
It's a shame
Number me in haste
Such a shame
This eagerness to change
This eagerness to change
Such a shame
Such a shame
Such a shame
Such a shame

Sweet And Tender Hooligan

( The Smiths / Live / Bande à Part LP Limited Edition )

Mélanie Pain :

He was a sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan
And he said that he'd never, never, never, never do it again
Not until the next time

He was a sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan
And he swore that he'd never, never, never, never, never do it again
And of course he won't

Poor old man
He had an accident with a three-bar fire
But that's ok
Because he wasn't very happy anyway
Poor woman
Strangled in her very own bed as she read
But that's ok
'Cause she was old and she would have died anyway

Don't blame
The sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan
And he said that he'd never, never, never, never do it again
Not until the next time

Jury, you've heard every word
So before you decide
Would you look into those mother me eyes
I love you for you, my love

Jury, you've heard every word
But before you decide
Would you look into those mother me eyes
I love you for you my love
For you my love

Don't blame
The sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan
'Cause he said that he'd never, never, never, never do it again

He was a sweet and tender hooligan, hooligan
Because he'd never, never, never, never do it again

Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera
Etcetera, etcetera

In the midst of life we are in death
Etcetera

Tainted love

( Soft Cell - Live cover Berlin 2007)

Sometimes I feel I've got to run away
I've got to get away
From the pain you drive jnto the heart of me
The love we share seems to go nowhere

And I've lost my light for I toss and turn
I can't sleep at night

Once I ran to you
Now I'll run from you

This tainted love you've given
I give you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not living, oh
Tainted love - tainted love

Now I know I've got to run away
I've got to get away
You don't really want it any more from me
To make things right you need someone to hold you tight

And you'll think love is to pray
But I'm sorry I don't pray that ws

Once I ran to you
Now I'll run from you

Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease.
I love you though you hurt me so

Now I'm gonna pack my things and go
Tainted love, tainted love

*** Thanx a lot to Carsten for this one ***

We Don't Need Another Hero

( Tina Turner cover / Nouvelle Vague feat. Angela McCluskey / unreleased song )

Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can't make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation
We are the ones they left behind

And I wonder when we're ever gonna change
Living under the fear till nothing else remains

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the thunderdome

Looking for something we can rely on
There's got to be something better out there
Love and compassion, their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air

And I wonder when we're ever gonna change
Living under the fear till nothing else remains

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the thunderdome

So what do we do with our lives
We leave only a mark
Will our story shine like a life
Or end in the dark

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the thunderdome

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the thunderdome

We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the thunderdome

*** Thanx a lot to Jose for this one ***

Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You)

( A Flock Of Seagulls cover / Debut album's french edition bonus track )

Silja:

It's not the way you look
It's not the way that you smile
Although there's something to them
It's not the way you have your hair
It's not that certain style
Though it could be that with you

If I had a photograph of you
It's something to remind me
I wouldn't spend my life just wishing

It's not the make-up
And it's not the way that you dance
It's not the evening sky
It's more the way your eyes are laughing
As they glance
Across the great divide

If I had a photograph of you
It's something to remind me
I wouldn't spend my life just wishing

It's not the things you say
It's not the things that you do
It must be something more
And if I feel this way for so long
Tell me is it all for nothing
Just don't walk out the door

If I had a photograph of you
It's something to remind me
I wouldn't spend my life just wishing
Yeah, just wishing, yeah
Just a photograph of you
To remind me
