M’EFFONDRE

M’effondre is a song from the album Bleu Noir released in December 2010.

In July 2016 Mylène Farmer lost her mother Marguerite Gauthier thirty years after a loss of her father Max Gauthier.



Let’s talk a little bit more about Mylene’s home life and her relationship with her mom.

The young Mylène grew up surrounded by 2 brothers (late Jean-Loup her elder and Michel the youngest) and the older sister Brigitte – but maintained a special bond with her paternal grandmother and a father who embodies the ideal man and the parental figure she always felt a special bond with. Although a relationship with her mother was not always easy and had a lot of friction over the years, was nevertheless a key relationship in Mylene’s life.


The breakup’s occurred when Mylène announced her parents, Marguerite and Max, that she will not pass her baccalaureate to become a riding instructor. Finally, she offers herself another destiny thanks to Laurent Boutonnat and Bertrand Le Page, thanks to whom she meets the success as we know her for.


Marguerite Gauthier admitted during an interview for the magazine VSD: “When Mylène decided to quit high school, we were very angry. At the time, we lived in Chaville. She often went to a recording studio with friends. That’s where a young man spotted her: Laurent Boutonnat .The first time I saw her on TV singing Maman a tort, I said to myself: “It will be a flop. “Not at all, it was a hit, as they say it is. But I am proud of her. Mylène is self-made and owes us nothing “.

M’effondre is the first single from the album Live 2019 released in 2019. Lyrics of Mylène Farmer and Music composed by Moby

Marguerite Gauthier was also delighted that her daughter came to visit her regularly. Tensions eased up with time which certainly enabled them to make up for the lost connection and be able to nourish the mother-daughter bond which was no doubts very healing experience for both. I hope Mylene is acknowledging 5th anniversary since her mom’s passing with a grateful and fulfilled heart being surrounded by her newly found duty as a jury in Cannes. I hope it also keeps her destructed from the excessive sadness as one can naturally feel around the time of the parent’s passing. RIP, dear Marguerite 🙏❣

Other Moby’s songs for Mylene (find a funny story of how they met): M’effondre (like all Moby’s songs on the Bleu Noir album) was made from a model sent by Moby to Mylène. All the instruments on the model are played by Moby himself.

Production: Moby & Mylène Farmer. Programming: Ninja and Jérôme Devoise

Deluxe edition Moby Destroyed album released in September 2011 includes song Breakdown (feat. Emily Zuzik). It is an American equivalent of M’effondre

M’effondre is the seventh track of the digitally released album Bleu Noir of which saw the light November 29, 2010

Physically the album came out on December 06, 2010

October 18, 2019: digital release at Midnight (streaming and download) of the single M’effondre Live 2019, the first single from Live 2019 the album of the nine concerts at Paris La Défense Arena in June 2019. Diffusion on the same day at 6am of the clip M’effondre Live directed by (yes, our familiar) François Hanss, best of images of the different parts of the show.

I have a fun idea! What won’t we play a favorite François Hanss clip for Mylene poll?

François Hanss is a French director and screenwriter born in 1960. After studying fine arts, he enrolled in the free conservatory of French cinema from which he graduated in 1981.

From 1980 to 1987, he was assistant director on commercials, short and feature films, TV films and music videos. Then he moved on to directing himself by signing commercials, music videos, reports and documentaries.

He is best known for his short film La Lettre, for his twice awarded film Corps à corps , and also for his collaborations with Mylène Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat. He received the 2014 Sacem Grand Prize for the audiovisual author-director.

“Moby signs five pieces, sometimes redundant, but manages to bring out of the singer something other than a hazy thread of voice, notably in M’effondre or Bleu Noir, where we finally seem to hear the real Mylène.” (Le Parisien – 12/06/2010)

“Some may remember that Mylène and Moby had already signed a duet in 2006 Slipping away (Crier la vie), on the best-of of the American. A collaboration that many were quick to qualify as a marketing operation when it now looks more like the beginnings of a musical collaboration. We will also appreciate the accuracy of the compositions offered for the occasion: M’effondre or even Inseparables which closes the album (What Hifi – Janvier 2011)

lyrics with translation


Je fais tout un peu
Rien n'est comme je veux
Me dissous un peu
Me divise en deux
Mais là
M'effondre
M'effondre
Tout vole en éclats
Mes sens et puis mon choix
Pas d'existence
Mais vivre ma transparence
Mais là
M'effondre
M'effondre
M'effondre
M'effondre
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien
Jusque là tout va, jusque là tout va bien

I do everything a little
Nothing is as i want
Dissolve myself a little
Split me in two
But the
Collapse
Collapse
Everything shatters
My senses and then my choice
No existence
But live my transparency
But the
Collapse
Collapse
Collapse
Collapse
Until then all is well, until then all is well
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
Until then all is well, until then all is well
Until then all is well, until then all is well
Until then all is well, until then all is well
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
So far everything is fine, so far everything is fine
