Description
I'm among people who are in a thunderstorm, tearing each other apart with a lot of tension, polemic and hard dualities. Nevertheless, they share the same passion...

Lyrics inspired by this situation, with some words coming from the international radio alphabet...

The translation is near the french lyrics

On the picture , a good flight friend of mine.

Lyrics
blesser avec de l'huile sur le feu, soigner avec un peu de poudre aux yeux
hurting with fuel on the fire, treating with smoke and mirrors

voilà que les châteaux s'effondrent, Mon Dieu, à jouer à ce jeu
then castles collapse, My God, due to playing this game

dans la cour de mon école, les cerfs volants dégringolent
in my school playground, kites tumble

des turbulences à perdre la boussole et de la tour le contrôle
from turbulences to lose their mind (be all at sea) and of the tower the control

ma camisole pour UNIFORM je passe aux rayons X-RAY 2 fois
my camisole as an UNIFORM, I take the X-Rays control twice

et je pars à bord d'un ALPHA jet chercher de l'or dans la SIERRA
and I leave with an ALPHA jet to look for some gold in the SIERRA

je danse le TANGO avec JULIETT dans les nuages sous un DELTA
I dance the TANGO with JULIETT in clouds under a DELTA

ou un FOXTROTT avec ROMEO dans les montagnes de LIMA
or a FOXTROTT with ROMEO in the mountains of LIMA

dans la cour de mon école il n'y a jamais de farandole
in my school playground, there is never farandole

on fait la guerre à coups de fariboles sans jamais un seul bémol
we make war with pieces of nonsense without ever tone down

moi je me moque de dans la tempête, je passe pour un fou chez les ZOULOU
me I laugh at the storm, I'm considered as a madman to ZULU

je mange un KILO de cacahuètes et je saute en vol de l'ALPHA jet
I eat one KILO of peanuts and I jump in flight out of the ALPHA jet

Love this Marc!

Your smooth vocals are always welcome on my iPod. Thanks for the download!

I really like how you were able to combine the ALPHABET into this story. Even without them, this is a good song, but with them, it's even cooler.

Nice guitar playing. Parts of it remind me of David Gilmore's work from 20 years ago.

Beautiful sounds and a nice flight!

Marc!
Salutations de l'Australie mon ami.

What a terrific song - your production is absolutely first rate, as are your performances. You have a very good ear for what makes a listenable and emotionally charged song.

I notice from the weather prediction page I use that tomorrow will be the first time this year that the maximum temperature in Neuchâtel will be higher than our maximum here - welcome to Spring!

We think of you often, and look forward to seeing you again - maybe next year if our plans work out.

10-4, BRAVO on the aerial FOXTROT!
Love the idea of sprinkling aviation alphabet soup in here, and connecting the dots to create a trajectory of lyrics.

The music, as always, is infectious... I want to let go of the bar and just freefall in it. Love the bends... has almost a Tom Petty feel to it in a way.

Great guitar playing and singing. Gorgeous.

ttfn,
Drakonis

excellent production on this one! everything is crystal clear and nicely mixed to my ears. I love the combo of the acoustic rhythm guitar and the bendy steel-sounding electric. Your performance of the vocals is great - I felt like I could understand what was being said just by the inflection and emotion of your voice. Very nice marc!

Spreading the word
Please, thanks, hello and goodbye - that's about the extent of my French. So it's pertinent that you provide an English translation, so I can follow along. Plus there is a bonus, because besides word-meanings, I can also observe pronuncination and phrasing, both which are excellent. I love your diction.

Wrapping a story in the internation radio code is such a clever idea for a song. I wish I would have thought of it : )

Recreational composition - that's my approach to music, too. Free from any commercial restraints. That's what allows such wonderful pieces like this one to come into existence.

Better late than...
Well, I do like the consistent and very supportive beat that accompanies this number. My one suggestion would be to bring your vocal up a bit more in the mix. I don't understand French, but I would, nevertheless, like to hear the words a little better. The composition itself is really terrific: well-paced, with movement in the harmonic structure at just the right points that gives your song the lift it occasional demands. That added guitar obligato at around 2:30 and following is lovely. Very mellow song that is carefully performed. Glad I caught this...even at such a late date.
