LOVE SONG


Love Song is a song from Mylène Farmer’s tenth studio album, Interstellaires (2015).

It is a futuristic Mylene with all the futuristic electro sounds is bringing in all the timeless themes of a human aspirations: it is all about LOVE – from the beginning of the life on the planet and through the distant future. The technology will change, the lifestyle will be adjusted to live in the techno world, but the craving for love will no doubts remain a part of a human nature as long as it exists. The text is as usually open to the interpretations: it is melancholic and aching from loneliness and possibly even lost love. “Love song of the left behind”. It is though sprinkled by the new technological age terms such as ” Résistances Dissonances”…Feels like the space ship crew heading to the new galaxies and those who left on Earth (left behind) …Perhaps, its just my imagination and I am guilty of it as charged. Mylene’s lyrics and songs do provoke it in me greatly 😍

The words Love Song were written by Mylène Farmer.
Music composed by Martin Kierszenbaum and Mylène Farmer.
Programming, drums, percussions and keyboards, guitars, basses, directed: Martin Kierszenbaum
Additional guitars: Sébastien Chouard
Basses: Jonathan Noyce
Drums: Loic Pontieux
Mixing: Jérôme Devoise

The song has much “heavier” arrangement than those we have used to from the “conventional” Mylene. Martin Kierszenbaum has brought more rock guitar sounds than we’ve heard since, perhaps, Jeff Dahlgren’s influence back in Anamorphosée.

It’s a robust song with the depth, “serious” arrangements. and maturity to it.

Love Song has never been sung in concert.

“Love Song, potential hymn with lighting of lighters for concerts” (“La Voix du Nord” – 07/11/2015)

“Punctuated by a sound of sonar, also underlined by guitar chords and the striking of a drums, this soaring sixth piece will undoubtedly require the lighting of lighters during the next concerts of the Farmer icon. Through this bewitching ballad, Mylène the woman especially lets show through her empathy for the battered life and love. Love song / Love song / Love song of the left behind / Love song / A Love song / When I see the shadow / Separate us from the world (…) “, she chants. Like a restorative balm. ” (gala.fr – 11/04/2015)

“A luminous world where love heals all ailments, as the artist sings it in Milky Way, City of Love (Love arises from nothing / Having no other wishes than the other”) and Love Song, whose lyricism of the aerial chorus contrasts with the sobriety of the verses. ” (Pure Charts – 11/06/2015)


“Farmer’s sumptuous melodies are rare. There is Love Song, pure Farmer in its progression, and its heady chorus inviting emotion, but the musical construction differs” (ait-alire.com – 06/11/2015)


“The hits are legion on Interstellaires , C’est Pas Moi , the very electro Pas D’Access, the very rock Love Song but also the Milky Way and the very beautiful Un Jour Ou L’Autre .” (Laparisiennelife.com – 06/11/2015)


“A mix instant hits Love Song, Pas D’Access, City Of Love sometimes slightly funk, dancing songs It’s not me and tearful moment, Un Jour Ou L’Autre because of this particularly crystalline voice. Mylène Farmer is radiant in her new attire. It will not be tomorrow that we will forget it. ” (Lesechos.fr – 11/06/2015)

To the wasted nights
To the lonely
And others from oblivion
From one life to another
Not a winter
That does not bleed
Like
Resistors
Dissonances
To love and be
Dazzled

Ba A A ... Throwing
Pa ... A ... Ars
In the space

Love song
Love song
Love song of the left behind
Love song
A love song
When I see the shadow
Separate ourselves from the world

To the wasted nights
To the lonely
And others from oblivion
From one life to another
Not a winter
That does not bleed
Like
Resistors
Dissonances
To love and be
Dazzled

Pa A The East
The moon
Ba A Al
Of Fortune
