PostSubject: Melody-Young French Singer   Sun 26 Apr - 20:04

I discovered a beautiful and talented young French singer on You Tube named Melody. She was 12 in 1989 when she had a huge hit "Y a pas que les grands qui rêvent". She released 14 songs but quit recording in 1984. I have English translations for some of her songs. Here are some of her videos:

Yeah, I already talked about her on this thread.
She reminds me my childhood... Well, I was more a teenager than a child but well... That's a lot of memories. Razz

I have made some comments on Melody on the other thread, but I will just say again I really enjoy her earliest stuff. This is a good thread you got going AmericanAssolFan.

You are right. Her early songs were her best. Mamie is my favorite. Very sad song, but very beautiful. If anyone is interested I can post translations for some of her songs.

I ALWAYS like translations into English. Well, what I mean is I always THINK I want to see the translation, but sometimes I guess I wind up disappointed.

OK Ill start with her big hit in when she was 12. I translated with Google and a French friend made some corrections. I will look for some more that I have somewhere.

http://www.mediafire.com/?xfyd0jdjdzt


Y a pas que les grands qui rêvent

On the window the rain streams
The earth appears so beautiful to me
I give this storm to the desert
The eternal snow on Cairo
I offer the gardens of Babylon
To this boy for whom my heart shivers
Don't grow too quickly, wait for me
I know that one day, you will come to me

Grown-ups are not the only ones that have dreams
Grown-ups are not the only ones that have feelings
I would like him to embrace me on the lips
not as a child
Grown-ups are not the only ones that have dreams
Grown-ups are not the only ones that have feelings
Its like a childhood that's reaching its end
In an ocean

He teaches me the names of the stars
From the top of the cathedrals
He plays the music of the hope
His piano cries of ivory tears
I feel the caress on my wrist
Of the Brazilian bracelet he gave me
By saying "when it will break
Then your dream will be realized"

And I await you
And I await you

Here are the French lyrics:

Sur la vitre qui ruisselle
La terre me parait si belle
Je donne cet orage au désert
Les neiges éternelles sur le Caire
J'offre les jardins de Babylone
A ce garçon pour qui mon cœur frissonne
Grandi pas trop vite et attend moi
Je sais qu'un jour, tu viendras vers moi

Y a pas que les grands qui rêvent
Y a pas que les grands qui ont des sentiments
J'voudrais qu'il m'embrasse sur les lèvres
pas comme une enfant
Y a pas que les grands qui rêvent
Y a pas que les grands qui ont des sentiments
C'est comme une enfance qui s'achève
Dans un océan

Il m'apprend le nom des étoiles
Tout en haut des cathédrales
Il joue la musique de l'espoir
Son piano pleure des larmes d'ivoire
Je sens la caresse sur mon poignet
Du bracelet Brésilien qu'il m'a donné
En disant quand il se cassera
Alors ton rêve se réalisera

Et je t'attends
Et je t'attends

That's pretty good. Quite poetic isn't it? Thank you for your work on that.

Yeah, sounds like she wants to grow up a little too fast! I found my favorite. It is a very sad song but so pretty. Pop a Prozac and read on. Thanks again to my friend Alan

Mamie (Grandma)

When she talks to us about her marriage
There is on her face
The smile of her young age
She shows us
Photos from the past
She says that she wants to leave
Because she doesn’t want to bother anyone anymore
She recalls being so beautiful
But now, in the cruel mirror
She sees nothing anymore but an old woman
I see her going away, so tired

Alone, in a corner of the living room
In front of the television
There are no more seasons
In the news paper
She doesn’t understand anything anymore
She says that she’s waiting the end
Some evening or morning
She goes shopping
Buying sweaters for the children
She often walks
In her very large garden
I see her going away, so tired, grandma

She has nothing anymore
No more friends of her age
They are all gone on their own trip
Therefore she loses her courage
She is so soft
I like kissing her skin
But she doesn’t find words anymore
Her strength have betrayed her
I see her going away, so tired

She doesn’t dream anymore
She doesn’t sleep that much either
She says that she lived her life,
That she can leave now,
I see her going away, so tired, grandma


Quand elle nous parle de son marriage
Il y a sur son visage
Le sourire de son jeune âge
Elle nous fait voir
Des photos du passé
Elle dit qu'elle veut s'en aller
Pour ne pas déranger
Elle se souvient d'avoir été si belle
Mais dans le miroir cruel
Elle ne voit plus qu'une vieille
Je la vois s'en aller, si fatiguée

Seule dans un coin du salon
Devant la télévision
Il n'y a plus de saison
Dans le journal
Elle ne comprend plus rien
Elle dit qu'elle attend la fin
Un soir ou un matin
Elle fait des courses
Des chandails pour les enfants
Puis elle se promène souvent
Dans son jardin trop grand
Je la vois s'en aller, si fatiguée, Mamy

Elle n'a plus rien
Plus d'ami de son âge
Ils ont tous fait le voyage
Alors elle perd courage
Elle est si douce
J'aime embrasser sa peau
Mais elle ne trouve plus ses mots
Ses forces lui font défaut
Je la vois s'en aller, si fatiguée

Elle ne rêve plus
Elle ne dort plus tellement
Elle dit qu'elle a fait son temps
Qu'elle peut partir maintenant
Je la vois s'en aller, si fatiguée, Mamy

The video I posted above of this song seems to have have problems. Here is one I uploaded to You Tube. I thought in the first one that she was so beautiful. What is with her hair in this one???? Laughing (And that outfit!)

Yeah I Know. lol! Hair and clothing styles change. I have to laugh at photos of me when I was young. What was I thinking? Paisley shirt, bell bottoms AND Beatles boots? The other video of Mamie above is working again. She is so pretty. Still looking for the translation of Chariot d'étoiles. It is very poetic.

I can´t imagine not liking a song/video by Melody from her 14 and under years. She still was/is good as a young adult, but I like everything she did as a kid. She is in her 30s now isn´t she?

Keep the tranlsations coming. I like that very much. Thanks! Very Happy

I was JOKING!! Laughing Laughing Laughing I absolutely love Melody. She is still very cute in in this video! My point was I preferred the way she looked in the other video. Very classy. Melody is 32. I have a picture of her in her 30's I will post later. She is still very beautiful. Here are some Melody web sites that I posted on good links, but I will repeat them here. You can use Google to translate.

I think you maybe misunderstood. It doesn't bother me at all about the comments on her hair or looking better in certain videos over others. That's all cool. I was simply saying I like everything she did as a child singer. Some better than others, but I don't think she was capable of singing bad or looking ugly.

Melody is one of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen. Everyone I have shown the "Une flèche en plein coeur" video to has said the same thing, "WOW!!" She could put her hair in curlers and still be adorable!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing The French are know for beautiful women and she everything you could expect. Women of East Slavic ancestry (Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian) are also amazing.

Yes I am aware she is from Belgium. She is the same ancestry as the French. Since she sings in French, Many people wouldn't know the difference. For simplicity, that is why I called her a French singer in this thread. Everyone is entitled to their taste in women, but I'm sure you will be outnumbered in the replies to this one! Those smiling eyes are killer!!!

Thanks for the translation. Human-made translation is always better than google, sometimes the translation is impossible to understand.

That is true. Sometimes Google and other sites translate very well. but sometimes they get it all wrong. This song only needed a few minor corrections by my friend. Check out the new video of Y a pas que les grands qui rêvent I posted with the translation on the first page.

Chariot d'étoiles (Chariot of stars)

Like a ghost ship
On the chromium ocean
Coming from the end of the world
And very close to me in the wave
Just above an island
Like a fragile bird
Even if he still hesitates
I await him already so intently

(Chourus)
Chariot of stars
Tomorrow someone will come
And it will be like the sun
That will never be the same again
Chariot of stars
He will come to take me
At the bottom of the most beautiful of my dreams
As a new morning which rises

Wind and then salt
Like an eternal sign
Up there in the clouds
To draw his face
The silence is great
Before the dancing love
And I listen for the sounds
When I think of him in the night

Chariot of stars
Only for me

It is written in the sky
My life will be new.

Comme un vaisseau fantôme
Sur l'océan de chrome
Venant du bout du monde
Et tout près de moi dans l'onde
Juste au-dessus d'une île
Comme un oiseau fragile
Même s'il hésite encore
Je l'attends déjà si fort

{Refrain:}
Chariot d'étoiles
Demain quelqu'un viendra
Et ce sera comme le soleil
Ça ne sera plus jamais pareil
Chariot d'étoiles
Il viendra me chercher
Au fond du plus beau de mes rêves
Comme un nouveau matin qui se lève

Du vent et puis du sel
Comme un signe éternel
Là-haut dans les nuages
Pour dessiner son visage
Il est grand le silence
Avant l'amour qui danse
Et je guette les bruits
Quand je pense à lui la nuit

Chariot d'étoiles
Rien que pour moi

C'est écrit dans le ciel
Ma vie sera nouvelle.

I'm not still sure if I should believe it's really her singing... Her voice sounds a lot older than her age, especially in the early video of Y'a pas etc...

I do not know why they would fake this. Many young singers have voices more mature than their age. Singers like Caroline Costa, Connie Talbolt and many others. I think this is part of the appeal of these young singers. I have personany heard young singers who sound much older than they are.

I don't have a problem with voices like Caroline Costa, Nora Foss etc who have mature voices. They still don't sound older than they are. And Melody somehow doesn't sound like it's her singing... Maybe it's just me.

I understand what you want to say, Moorvis. That's probably why I was not really fan of her voice, too deep for a preteen girl.

I moved this video here for you to check out. Melody has an incredible voice range. Over 2 octaves. I have seen our national anthem sung by young children and that takes a 3 octave range. Melody recorded for about 5 years. Are you telling me that you think that she was used all that time as just as a front for an older girl?? Doesn't make sense. She just had a great voice.
