GET UP GIRL


The song is again in French-lish 😊 or Engl-ech 😊 Either way I love her mixing language especially my very favorites ones. Maybe one day she’ll throw some “ya tebya lublyu” to the mix…that’d be the day!


Get up Girl is a song from Mylène Farmer’s eleventh studio album, Désobéissance (2018).

On 19 January 2018, the single Rolling Stone” was released and entered the French charts at number one. The video was directed by Carole Denis. A new album was announced for fall. On 22 June, a duet with LP, “N’oublie pas“, was released, also entering the French charts at number one. The song was co-written by LP, and the video, set in Iceland, was directed by Laurent Boutonnat

The lyrics for Get up Girl were written by Mylène Farmer. Music and artistic production by Feder / Quentin Segaud / Tommy Jean

“I often say to myself ‘get up’. Particularly, I remembered the painful moments of a leg fracture (in 2015) a double fracture, and I was bedridden for four or five months, in any case immobilized, and there I said to myself: “Get moving!” And I had trouble doing it, in spite of everything. And then, it is evoking these collapses, and especially this desire to move on from there. ‘before and to shake up all that … ” (Mylène Farmer – RTL – 03/10/2018) Poor darling! ☹ How hard it must have been for her! I don’t how about you, I wish I somehow have been there for her with chicken soup, compassion and care and maybe a story or two to entertain her curious mind…I wish I would support and nurture her through the tough times….

On the personal note, I absolutely adore her renewed sound, her overwhelming sensuality with her deep enveloping voice…I melt, I dissolve into her vibrations, into her feel, into her presence whispering into my ear. If I thought I loved her before, now I am nothing but the LOVE.

Hands down, nothing left of me.

As far as Get up girl, yes it’s my most used phrase with two school age girls in the house and myself who ironically happened to be a night owl and have to drag myself out of the bed every morning at 7 to get everyone ready. So yes again – it’s a story of my life as somehow most of Maylene’s’ songs are.

In the text of this song, we find (twice) the famous quote on the ethics of René Descartes: “Get up girl j’ai pas lu tout Descartes mais “Je pense donc je suis“” from the famous Speech of the method (1637).

“The titles of the songs also dig this optimistic vein, On a besoin d’y croire Get Up Girl “, Parler d’avenir... And we hear her laugh several times.” (leparisien.fr – 09/26/2018)

“Mylène Farmer surprises, has fun and you can feel it from the first listen. Highlighted, her voice blends perfectly with melodies like in Get up girl ” ( teleloisirs.fr – 09/27/2018)

“Get up Girl reveals a dark sensuality”. (rfi.fr – 09/27/2018)

“the traditional sex songs and emancipatory spleen, are dressed in an elaborate electro and give a hell of a slap. ” (clubcorbeille.com – 09/27/2018)

“So yes, Feder’s paw makes the turn surprising (remember of the release of Rolling Stone which had confused us). But with hindsight, the whole is furiously effective! The tempos are heady, the sounds modern and Mylène finally dares to assume her bass à la Marianne Faithfull in songs less dark than usual. We could cite Get up Girl and its folk accents “. (Garcon-magazine.com – 09/27/2018)

“The collaborations with Feder and LP on his new album were fruitful. Several radio-friendly tracks from Disobedience: Prière , Des Larmes or Get Up Girl – seem to have the potential to appeal to the general public.” (20minutes.fr – 09/28/2018)

“If you’re looking for something a little more outrageous, Histoires de fesses chronicles a certain body part, while Get Up Girl is a thoroughly demented concoction. I’m obsessed with the spacey electronic production and the English-language refrain of “I find life so sexy.” (idolator.com – 02/10/2018) 100% agree! 😊 me too!

“In search of a new lease of life, the artist embraces a sense of groove, goes from whispers to the spoken word, flirts with darkness on the magnetic Get Up Girl, whose crescendo rise is revealed with an insane intensity.” (Pure Charts – 10/03/2018)

Mylène Farmer was invited to RTL on 03/10/2018 to talk about her eleventh album “Disobedience” and her future concerts … The opportunity to also discuss the relationship to music, to the public, to life, to the state of the world in 2018 …

lyrics with translation


Get up girl
Six mois de plâtre or
J'ai beau me taire
J'ai rêvé trop fort
Quand tout se taille
Si peu qui te donnent
Train de retard
Que sais-je de "l'homme"?
Get up Mylène, des flammes si la vie te saque
"Je pense donc je suis" Pour boire un verre
Et si je stagne, là
Si je comprends tout
Suis plus la même la vie a bon dos
Mais pour les gens c'est du vague
Mais pour les gens je déraille
Et chaque fois une entaille
Et la vie goes on and on
I don't know why
I find life so sexy
I feel so high
I guess life's so sexy
Get up girl j'ai pas lu tout Descartes mais
"Je pense donc je suis" pour boire un verre
Et si je baille
Si je me lève tôt
Suis plus la même, la vie a bon dos
Mais pour les gens c'est du vague
Mais pour les gens je déraille
Et chaque fois une entaille
Et la vie goes on and on
Mais pour les gens c'est du vague
Mais pour les gens je déraille
Et chaque fois une entaille
Et la vie goes on and on
I don't know why
I find life so sexy
I feel so high
I guess life's so sexy
Sexy
Sexy
Sexy


Get up girl
Six months of gold plaster
No matter how much I keep my mouth shut
I dreamed too hard
When everything gets cut
So few that give you
Train of delay
What do I know about “the man”?
Get up Mylene, flames if the life you saque
“I think therefore I am” For a drink
And if I stagnate, there
If I understand everything
I’m not the same, life has a good back
But for people it’s vague
But for people I’m off the rails
And every time a cut
And life goes on and on
I don’t know why
I find life so sexy
I feel so high
I guess life’s so sexy
Get up girl I haven’t read all of Descartes but
“I think therefore I am” for a drink
And if I yawn
If I get up early
I’m not the same anymore, life’s got a good back
But for people it’s vague
But for people I go off the rails
And every time a slash
And life goes on and on
But for the people it’s vague
But for the people I’m off the rails
And every time a cut
And life goes on and on
I don’t know why
I find life so sexy
I feel so high
I guess life’s so sexy
Sexy
Sexy
Sexy
