FRENCH MUSIC RECOMMENDATIONS

Note: Some of these artsits are not from France, but are Belgian, Canadaian, even Austrian. What I mean by ‘French music’ is that it is sung in the French language.

I was doing you a favor by playing the long game...

I too was playing yet another long game by holding on to this for so long.

SO I had read earlier today the owner of a previous job of mine passed away. This was a place that tried to screw me pretty hard and I took some pro revenge on. It drug up some angry old feelings, so why not take an equal dose of catharsis?

WARNING: This is a doozy so strap in if you dare, no TL;DR it wouldn’t do justice.

So this takes place almost a decade ago. I was working as a department manager for a fairly large privately owned pest control company. Their color scheme was black and yellow, much like the taxi’s the owner’s dad used to drive. Since the taxi industry would be around for ever(hello Uber/Lyft) so would this pest control company, (this is important later) or so the owner used to parrot constantly. My job was to over see the techs doing treatments and set their stops and generally manage assorted insect control services, inventory, payroll for that dept, etc etc. I had taken the job from the owners son who took it from the previous manager who they demoted and yet stayed in the dept…this is important later. The owners son was a late 30’s early 40’s man child. I mean if he had dialed it back a few degrees he would have been an awesome guy, but anytime booze was involved he was a mess. If it was weed, he turned into the stereo typical obnoxious stoner making nothing but bad Jamaican accented jokes. He also hit on anything younger than him that moved…while being married w a pregnant wife. But I digress, the owner was a piece of work too, old Jewish guy who was as racist as he was old, not with any kind of seething hatred. Just a “this is the way it is” type attitude. My fave line of his, “The sky is blue, Ch#@ks know math, N@&ers are lazy, Jews know gold. What else is new” Like it was the most clever thing of all time. Finally now on to the revenge and need for such.

casablanca was made in 1942 but takes place in 1941 and revolves around the effects of the war in a clubin the titular casablanca that attracts americans, nazis and refugees from the war. many of the hired extras were in fact real life refugees. something to keep in mind when watching this scene where rick, the owner of the club, orders his band to drown out the nazi rendition of “ die wacht am rhein” with the french national anthem “la marseillaise”.

the tears are real

April 25th 1792: La Marseillaise composed

On this day in 1792, La Marseillaise - the French national anthem - was composed by Claude-Joseph Rouget de Lisle. Rouget de Lisle was a captain of the engineers in the French army, and an amateur musician. He was stationed at Strasbourg during the French Revolution, and was there when Austria and Prussia invaded France to quell the revolution. Upon France’s declaration of war on the two countries in April 1792, the mayor of Strasbourg asked Rouget de Lisle, a guest at his house, to write a marching song to rally French troops. He obliged, and on the evening of April 25th 1792, wrote the ‘Chant de guerre pour l'armée du Rhin’ - ‘War song for the Army of the Rhine’. The song was published by revolutionary François Mireur in Marseille, and was sung with fervour by the Marseille volunteer soldiers as they entered Paris in July 1792, earning the song its new title of ‘La Marseillaise’. In July 1795, ‘La Marseillaise’ was declared a national song, but it was banned by Napoleon under the new empire. The song was eventually rearranged and reinstated, and adopted as the national anthem under the Third Republic in 1879; in the twentieth century, the anthem was written into the constitution. The original ‘La Marseillaise’ had six verses, but only the first and sixth verse are customarily sung today. The lyrics are fairly violent, but it is a rousing song about the strength of French citizens, and remains an iconic national anthem.

Allons enfants de la Patrie, (Arise, children of the Fatherland)
Le jour de gloire est arrive! (The day of glory has arrived!)
Contre nous de la tyrannie, (Against us tyranny’s)
L'etendard sanglant est leve (repeat) (Bloody banner is raised)

  • me yesterday: i love tchaikovsky he will be good background music for studying.
  • me today: literally is there anything more iconic than writing cannon fire into your musical score with split second precision? and then being embarrassed of your biggest hit because you hate nationalism? he wrote this shit in six weeks what am i even doing!!!! the part where the russian troop motif squashes la marseillaise which signify the french troops...oh my god was that even the french national anthem in that era? let's spend a lot of time researching every detail of this and tchaikovsky's gay ass life

Someone said, "these sjws don't know the implications of Islam, let alone accepting it." Quite timely since France just had their elections. What do you think it'll be like for France, letting Macron win?

Christopher Hitchens once said, “Barbarians never take a city until someone holds the gates open for them, and it’s your own multicultural authorities who will do it for you. Resist it while you can. Don’t pay for the rope that will choke you.” It’s all over for France. If anyone has the faintest idea of the state France is in today then they would understand Le Pen wasn’t a racist Islamophobe, she’s simply a patriot who can foresee the future of France and wanted to assure the safety and prosperity of her country. Yet she is labeled a radical Islamophobic sociopath and they vote for a guy who doesn’t believe in French culture, terrorism is “part of the parcel” and at every chance puts the interests of the EU powers and his banker buddies before France. He celebrated with the EU anthem and snubbed the French anthem which says it all really and he’s already making enemies with the UK and he isn’t even officially the President yet. I do not see this ending well for them.

The famous scene from Casablanca in which Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid) leads the band and patrons of Rick’s in singing the French national anthem “La Marseillaise” was copied from Jean Renoir’s 1937 film La Grande Illusion (1937), in which French service members in a German POW camp sing the song as a similar gesture of defiance. In Casablanca, “La Marseillaise” is sung over the German song “Watch on the Rhine”, and many of the extras had real tears in their eyes; a large number of them were actual refugees from Nazi persecution in Germany and elsewhere in Europe and were overcome by the emotions the scene brought out. During the shoot, Humphrey Bogart was called to the studio to stand in the middle of the Rick’s Cafe set and nod. He had no idea what the nod meant in the story - that he was giving his OK for the band in the cafe to play “La Marseillaise” (x).

french anon here, a friend really needed to know the first verse of le marseillais (french national anthem) for some presentation or something, and I was too lazy to type it out by hand ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ohhh thank you. someone told me it was the national anthem so it made a little more sense. thank you for telling me :)

That moment when...

You’re trying to write a bit of fanfic because you’ve gone MIA for the past few days, and your roommate barges in your room dressed in rainbow boxers with a unicorn head, screeching the Canadian National Anthem in French while waving a plastic lightsaber around before screaming out the window “May the fourth be with you!”

He’s on something and I’m mad because he’s not sharing…

French Shenanigans // In which, Captain Wendie botched up their positioning for the French anthem ; In which, even Necib couldn’t resist a smile ; In which, the usual stoic Bussaglia can’t stop grinning about it ; In which, Bouhaddi and Boulleau are being dorks about it ; In which, Renard realized her very unprofessional mistake and Henry sneaked a grin at her… 

Mclennon has honestly ruined me someone could throw something at me like “the French national anthem is played at the first 8 seconds of ‘all you need is love’ and where did John and Paul go for John’s 21st birthday? that’s right Paris, France 666 illuminati 666 Mclennon = confirmed” and I’d prob just blindly accept it
