Blog Awards & Nominations

OK, so I received these awards from Harry over at Dribbling Pensioner (that old geezer<– I meant that in a good way :)) on March 21, 2012. I’ve been a bit preoccupied with a school project so I haven’t fulfilled by awardee duties. Come to think of it, I haven’t been fulfilling my blogging duties either :roll: (After this post, I’m going into the naughty corner)

I don’t know what the rules are for the HUG AWARD, but I guess I’ll just pass it on to someone who needs a digital hug today :)

Artist Alert: Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg

French is truly the language of love. I am immersing myself into this beautiful language. I’ve changed the language on my browser to French and I listen to French news. I also found some French bloggers out there in blog-sphere: One French Word, French A L.A Cart & Ici on Parle Francais (We Speak French).

(Note to self: Add visit France to bucket list).

I found this song Je T’aime … Moi Non Plus on Guylaine’s music blog GCG Creative Enterprise. The song is a dialogue between two lover during sex.

Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg – Je T’aime … Moi Non Plus

Lyrics:

French

Je t’aime… Moi non plus

(refrain)
Je t’aime, je t’aime
Oh oui je t’aime !

Moi non plus
Oh mon amour

Comme la vague irrésolue

Je vais, je vais et je viens
Entre tes reins
Je vais et je viens
Entre tes reins
Et je me retiens

(refrain)

Tu es la vague, moi l’île nue

Tu vas, tu vas et tu viens
Entre mes reins
Tu vas et tu viens
Entre mes reins
Et je te rejoins

(refrain)

Comme la vague irrésolue

Je vais, je vais et je viens
Entre tes reins
Je vais et je viens
Entre tes reins
Et je me retiens

Tu vas, tu vas et tu viens
Entre mes reins
Tu vas et tu viens
Entre mes reins
Et je te rejoins

(refrain)

L’amour physique est sans issue

Je vais, je vais et je viens
Entre tes reins
Je vais et je viens
Et je me retiens
Non ! Maintenant viens !

English

Je t’aime… Mon non plus

I love you, I love you
Oh, yes I love you!
No longer me
Oh, my love…
Like the undecided wave
I go, I go and I come
Between your back
I go and I come
Between your back
And I hold back.

I love you, I love you
Oh, yes I love you!
no longer me
Oh, my love…
You are the wave, I’m the naked island
You go, you go and you come
Between my back
You go and you come
Between my back
And I rejoin you.

I love you, I love you
Oh, yes I love you!
no longer me
Oh, my love…
Like the undecided wave
I go, I go and I come
Between your back
I go and I come
Between your back
And I hold back.

You go, you go and you come
Between my back
You go and you come
Between my back
And I rejoin you.

I love you, I love you
Oh, yes I love you!
No longer me
Oh, my love…
The physical love is without a way out
I go, I go and I come
Between your back
I go and I come back
And I hold back
No! Now come!
