ON A BESOIN D’Y CROIRE


For this chapter, I added some random photos of Mylene which I found particularly cool and expressive. They all illustrate different sides of her but in the same awesome way. Enjoy! 🙂

On a besoin d’y croire (We Need to Believe) is a song from the album Désobéissance (2018).

The lyrics of the song On a besoin d’y croire were written by Mylène Farmer. The title of the song evokes the refrain of the 1995 single, XXL: “We need love”.

“When” we need to believe it “,” we need love “, and I need to believe it. ” (Mylène Farmer – RTL – 03/10/2018)

She clearly hints to the L’autre theme (once more!) ” Mais sans l’autre on est quoi

Another wink from Mylène to her career in this song. When she writes: “To be two, to come closer / To be one here / So be it”, these words remind us of those of the refrain of Ainsi soit Je… from 1988: ” Ainsi soit-il”

“I had fun. Throughout the album there are a few… there is as long as they are sweet reborn, there is, I think, Ainsi soit-il, I forgot. I made little winks like that for the people who have followed me for so many years. ” (Mylène Farmer – RFM – 02/10/2018)

The lyrics of the song as much as pretty straight -forward are again a bit more philosophical and therefore somewhat ambiguous.

Music composed by Feder / Ana Zimmerman / Mylène Farmer. Artistic production: Feder. Backing Vocals: Ana Zimmerman. Mixing: Jérôme Devoise at the DES studio (Paris)

On a besoin d’y croire is one of the two songs from the album Désobéissance – (also Parler d’avenir ) for which Mylène co-composed the music.

“On a besoin d’y croire in it imposes its pugnacious and dancing positivism.” (rfi.fr)

“With an exemplary fluidity, very immediate, Désobéissance is an opportunity for Mylène Farmer to slip here and there winks to her glorious repertoire. […] the flights of On a besoin d’y croire, reminiscent of the XXL cult, fans will revel in these caring brands. ” (Pure Charts)

“The song titles also dig that optimistic vein, We need to believe it.” (leparisien.fr)

I absolutely adore this photo – so classic! ❤

In my opinion, the song is definitely more of a “New Mylene”’s repertoire which blossomed on the latest 2018 album Désobéissance. She has definitely shown her disobedient side even if the disobedience to her own style and habitual so familiar music making fashion. I like it! I love discovering different (especially hidden) aspects of Mylene. I will jump down to the rabbit hole for her in every opportunity possible. So for me, I say YES, YES and YES to her innovations thrown like a precious gems all over the album. Its unpredictable (another bug YESSS from me), its modern and very up-to-date with all the arrangements and production style (bravo, Feder! – as I mentioned it in my earlier chapters). Mylene’s impeccable taste and her gut feel for selecting the music that suits her, never cease to lead her down the right path.

Et voilà
C'est comme ça
Il n'y a plus rien à faire pour nous
Comme on s'assomme et
C'est la faille
Il n'y a plus rien à faire pour nous
C'est trop tard
Le monde est braille
Il n'y a plus rien à faire pour nous
La lune est noire et
Et j'ai mal
Mais n'arrête jamais d'être en nous
So do we stigmates sous la peau bouge?
Suis-moi quand j'y vois rouge?
Tant pis ça ira
Tant qu'il y aura toi
Stigmates sous ma peau fine
Mon amour à morphine
Tu vois ça ira
Tu vois ça ira
Ah, ya, ya, ya
On a tous un espoir
Entrer dans l'histoire
Mais sans l'autre on est quoi?
Malgré le vide on a
On a besoin d'y croire
Ah, ya, ya, ya
Tout seul là on a quoi?
Qu'un pauvre miroir
Son reflet et puis quoi
Mais sans l'autre on est quoi?
Moi, j'ai besoin d'y croire
Et voilà
Déjà vu
Il n'y a plus rien à faire pour nous
Plus de classe
Si tout est chaste
Il n'y a plus rien à faire pour nous
So do we stigmates sous la peau bouge?
Suis-moi quand j'y vois rouge?
Tant pis ça ira
Tant qu'il y aura toi
Stigmates sous ma peau fine
Mon amour à morphine
Tu vois ça ira
Tu vois ça ira
Ah, ya, ya, ya
Sans un autre on est quoi?
Pour entrer dans l'histoire
Sans amour on est quoi?
Si c'est la fin Inshallah
On a besoin d'y croire
Ah, ya, ya, ya
Et sans l'autre on a quoi?
Qu'un pauvre miroir
Son reflet et puis quoi
Moi, sans toi je me noie
On a besoin d'y croire
Ah, ya, ya, ya
On a tous un espoir
Entrer dans l'histoire
Mais sans l'autre on est quoi
Malgré le vide on a
On a besoin d'y croire
C'est pas le temps qui passe
C'est pas l'indifférence
C'est juste qu'on y croit plus
Moi je sais qu'on a plus
Le souffle pour s'éloigner
Être deux, s'approcher
Pour ne faire qu'un ici
Ainsi soit-il
Ah, ya, ya, ya
On a tous un espoir
Entrer dans l'histoire
Mais sans l'autre on est quoi?
Malgré le vide on a
On a besoin d'y croire
Ah, ya, ya, ya
Tout seul là on a quoi?
Qu'un pauvre miroir
Son reflet et puis quoi
Mais sans l'autre on est quoi?
Moi, j'ai besoin d'y croire
Amen

And There you go
It's like that
There is nothing more for us to do
As we knock ourselves out and
This is the flaw
There is nothing more for us to do
It's too late
The world is braille
There is nothing more for us to do
The moon is black and
And I am in pain
But never stop being inside of us
So does the stigma under the skin move?
Follow me when I see red?
Too bad it will be fine
As long as there is you
Stigmas under my thin skin
My morphine love
You see it will be fine
You see it will be fine
Ah, ya, ya, ya
We all have hope
Enter history
But without the other what are we?
Despite the emptiness we have
We need to believe it
Ah, ya, ya, ya
All alone there we have what?
Than a poor mirror
Its reflection and then what
But without the other what are we?
Me, I need to believe it
And There you go
Already seen
There is nothing more for us to do
More class
If everything is chaste
There is nothing more for us to do
So does the stigma under the skin move?
Follow me when I see red?
Too bad it will be fine
As long as there is you
Stigmas under my thin skin
My morphine love
You see it will be fine
You see it will be fine
Ah, ya, ya, ya
Without another what are we?
To make history
Without love what are we?
If this is the end Inshallah
We need to believe it
Ah, ya, ya, ya
And without the other we have what?
Than a poor mirror
Its reflection and then what
Me, without you I drown
We need to believe it
Ah, ya, ya, ya
We all have hope
Enter history
But without the other we are what
Despite the emptiness we have
We need to believe it
It's not the time that passes
It's not indifference
It's just that we don't believe in it anymore
I know we have more
The breath to go away
Be two, come closer
To become one here
So be it
Ah, ya, ya, ya
We all have hope
Enter history
But without the other what are we?
Despite the emptiness we have
We need to believe it
Ah, ya, ya, ya
All alone there we have what?
Than a poor mirror
Its reflection and then what
But without the other what are we?
Me, I need to believe it
Amen
