 “Michel Delpech – Pleurer le chanteur”

 “Michel Delpech – Pleurer le chanteur” 

Jean-Michel Delpech (26 January 1946 – 2 January 2016), known as Michel Delpech, was a French singer-songwriter and actor.



Career 

In 1963, he had his debut release hit “Anatole” on Disques Vogue. In 1964, Delpech met Roland Vincent, and a long singing songwriting partnership ensued[1] with Delpech being signed to Festival French record label.

In 1965, he took part in the music comedy Copains Clopant that had a six-month run and made him very popular, particularly through his interpretation of “Chez Laurette”. He was the opening act for Jacques Brel’s goodbye concert at the Paris Olympia. In 1967, he collaborated with Johnny Stark. In 1968, he won the “Grand Prix du Disque” award for “Il y a des jours où on ferait mieux de rester au lit”.

Then he left Vogue to sign with Barclay Records. At the peak of his success, he recorded “Wight Is Wight” in tribute to the Isle of Wight Festival, a famous rock festival on the Isle of Wight that became his best known song. It sold over one million copies in Europe, and was awarded gold disc status.[2]

‘Pour Un Flirt’ was a second smash hit. It charted in the French-speaking countries around the globe as well in the Netherlands, and a version in German brought him charts success in West Germany, Austria and Switzerland. An English translation, Flirt, made the Top 20 in the UK.

The early 1970s brought separation from Johnny Stark for two years, and the end of the long collaboration with Roland Vincent, his first-ever writer. He had some new releases but with limited success. In the 1980s, he enjoyed a comeback and released the album Loin d’ici. A compilation album followed in 1989. He continued releasing albums and making concerts. In December 2006, he released an album of duets Michel Delpech and that topped the French Albums Chart for one week (week of 21–27 January 2007). He also engaged on a French tour.

Pleurer le chanteur 

 (Lyrics in French)

Je l’ai jamais trompйe

Enfin, pas souvent

Et ouis de toutes les faзons

C’est pas pour зa qu’on fout le camp

Les placards vidйs

Зa lui ressemble pas

Mкme pas un mot griffonnй

Qui c’est qui va nourrir le chat

Et la gardienne qui me dit

Que mademoiselle est sortie

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Regarder pleurer le chanteur

Y a pas de chagrin mineur

Ce coup-lа зa va pas marcher

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Regarder pleurer le chanteur

C’est un accord majeur

Qui vient de se dйsaccorder

Et la gardienne qui me dit

Que mademoiselle est sortie

Une semaine de courrier

Qu’elle n’a pas ouvert

Y a mкme plus une bouteille d’eau

Dans la porte du frigidaire

Elle m’avait prйvenu

J’ai pas su y faire

Aprиs tout, je l’ai bien voulu

Pourtant lа, je me sens pas fier

Et la gardienne qui me dit

Que mademoiselle est sortie

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Regarder pleurer le chanteur

Y a pas de chagrin mineur

Ce coup-lа зa va pas marcher

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Regarder pleurer le chanteur

C’est un accord majeur

Qui vient de se dйsaccorder

Et la gardienne qui me dit

Que mademoiselle est sortie

Tu aurais pu me laisser, petite conne

Une adresse ou un tйlйphone

Un vieux T-shirt, un signe indien

Quelque chose qui me dit que tu reviens


Oh, oh, oh, oh

Regarder pleurer le chanteur

Y a pas de chagrin mineur

Ce coup-lа зa va pas marcher


Oh, oh, oh, oh

Regarder pleurer le chanteur

C’est un accord majeur

Qui vient de se dйsaccorder

Et la gardienne qui me dit

Que mademoiselle est sortie.

Pleurer le chanteur

Crying the singer

(Lyrics in English)

Empty cupboards

Зa does not look like

Not even a scribbled word

Who’s who’s going to feed the cat


And the guardian who tells me

That Mademoiselle is out

Oh oh oh oh

Watch crying the singer

There is no minor grief

This blow-it’s not going to work


Oh oh oh oh

Watch crying the singer

This is a major agreement

Who just disagreed

And the guardian who tells me

That Mademoiselle is out

One week of mail

That she did not open

There’s even more a bottle of water

In the fridge door

She had warned me

I did not know how to do it

After all, I liked it

Yet there, I feel not proud

And the guardian who tells me

That Mademoiselle is out

Oh oh oh oh

Watch crying the singer

There is no minor grief

This blow-it’s not going to work

Oh oh oh oh

Watch crying the singer

This is a major agreement

Who just disagreed

And the guardian who tells me

That Mademoiselle is out

You could have left me,

An address or a phone

An old T-shirt, an Indian sign

Something that tells me you come back

Oh oh oh oh

Watch crying the singer

There is no minor grief

This blow-it’s not going to work

Oh oh oh oh

Watch crying the singer

This is a major agreement

Who just disagreed

And the guardian who tells me

That Mademoiselle is out.
