Poetic music of Grand Corps Malade

This artist is awesome and released a magnific album.
I was surprised to find him on your website and glad you talk about him on such a web page !

Unfortunately (or fortunately if it helps you learn the language !) the force and beauty of this disc lies in the lyrics.
I think it is very difficult for a non French speaker to appreciate the CD.

But again, it is an incentive to learn !



Merci Frédéric pour les mots d'encouragement. Cependant j'ai trouvé vos commentaires un peu ennuyer. Vous supposez que tous les gens non-français ont la difficulté avec français. Ce n'est pas toujours le cas. Je suggère que ce serait une bonne idée que vous ne généralisez pas dans complètement la même manière jusqu'à ce que vous ayez réparti la capacité des lecteurs que vous vous adressez.

I found out about this great album few weeks ago, and I definitely agree with you, it is fantastic! I also sort of agree with Frederic : the lyrics are great and it is unfortunate that everyone can't apreciate all the beauty of the expression. As you said, he "uses the language of the streets" so it is normal for a non-french SPEAKER (not a non-french, because I couldn't agree more on the fact that some non-french people speak an extreeeemly good french) not to understand the strange expressions. I myself (even though I am not the best reference) as a native french speaker do not understand some parts of his songs.
Well anyway, the point of my message was originaly that this singer is really different from all the "new great singers", and that I've never seen (heard in fact) a text with more emotion in it.
I hope that this web site will make other people discover this great artist.
Good luck with your "french life",
yours sincerely

Grand Corps Malade is a real poet but with such a modern voice, very inspiring! I've translated a few of his lines on my blog, some more to come, check it out:
