This song is La Corrida by Francis Cabrel. I don't do it justice, but it's a seriously beautiful and haunting song about the Spanish bull fighting (La Corrida) from the Bull's perspective... My favourite part:
"Je ne savais pas qu'on puisse autant amuser autour d'une tombe" (I didn't know you could celebrate around a tomb) and the chorus: "Est-ce que ce monde est sérieux?" (kinda like 'are you kidding me?' but in a tragic way).
The first time I heard this song was sitting in JEAN-PIERRE's (yes his name deserves majescules), hair stylist chair, he was ouuu-ing and ahh-ing over my hair, drinking wine and informed me 'Zat you MUST lizin to zis song!' and cranked it to near ear drum blowing decibel. Love at first listen (too bad my hair cut by JEAN-PIERRE was more of a bowl cut....).
I hope you enjoy it :)
