I liked Mylene Farmer’s music before I saw her music videos, but now, having seen a few vids, I like her more. In this music vid, Live a Bercy, she sings Sans Contrefacon to hordes of rythmically waving, singing-along groupies. Well, I think she’s singing. Given her sinuous dancing, she could be lip-synching. She radiates a great amount of energy, charisma and simple joy to be performing. At the end, when she is singing out to the audience, who answers her, I think she’s laughing; she appears to be elated.

Also I like the back-up dancers.

Lyrics en francais:

M. Farmer/L. Boutonnat

Puisqu’il faut choisir
A mots doux je peux le dire
Sans contrefaçon
Je suis un garçon
Et pour un empire
Je ne veux me dévêtir
Puisque sans contrefaçon
Je suis un garçon

Tout seul dans mon placard
Les yeux cernés de noir
A l’abri des regards
Je défie le hasard
Dans ce monde qui n’a ni queue ni tête
Je n’en fais qu’à ma tête
Un mouchoir au creux du pantalon
Je suis chevalier D’Eon


Tour à tour on me chasse
De vos fréquentations
Je n’admets qu’on menace
Mes résolutions
Je me fous bien des qu’en-dira-t’on
Je suis caméléon
Prenez garde à mes soldats de plomb
C’est eux qui vous tueront


Lyrics in English, translated shittily by me:

Because you have to choose
I can say it sweetly
Without any counterfeit
I’m a boy
Even for a kingdom
I won’t undress
Because, without counterfeit,
I’m a boy

Alone in my cubby
Eyes ringed in black
Sheltered from looks
I defy luck
In a world without head or tail
I only have my head
A handkerchief the crotch of my breeches
I’m the Chevalier d’Eon!


Everywhere you drive me
Away from your hang-outs
I admit only that you threaten me
My resolutions
I don’t give a fuck about your "What will they says?"
I’m a chameleon
Watch out for my tin soldiers
It’s them that’ll shoot you
