Thank you LilMonkey for posting this.

I was so much in need of a new song from James.

I love it. It is so beautiful. His voice is pitch perfect, and crystal clear, and he sings it with such haunting tenderness.

At first we the listener will feel he is singing about falling in love, but at the end he 'disclaims' that. Which is sad. But it reminds me of 'I'm not in love' as although denying it, reading between the lines love is winning.

It has a French feel, and the piano and violins help to make it so romantic. I think James should use violins more often, it adds so much. Maybe he could perform with the London philharmonic like Cliff did once?

I wonder whether he wrote this himself? Is he that able to tap into French romantic music?

I know it will be a new favourite of mine.

Love is all about surrender. It is scary and lonely if it is not reciprocated.

I thought you would be interested to read this excerpt (translated in English by Google). More than 20 millions albums of the cartoon have been sold, translated in 25 languages. It seems to be a very good opportunity for James to take part in this adventure.

http://www.chartsinfrance.net/actualite/news-72522.html

"James Blunt on "Titeuf " is almost surreal. The alliance between the two worlds, that of Titeuf and singer, is the least original. I would add that it may be unexpected for this project.

From the moment we had Johnny Hallyday, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Francis Cabrel, Alain Souchon and Bénabar, it was much easier to have other artists. Obviously the record company was more willing to offer us. Moreover, the timings have been profitable to us, which is not the case for all projects, especially in music.

Listening to the song by James Blunt, this is also true that with Alain Souchon, we notice that they are very similar to what these two artists can produce by themselves. Why this desire to offer them songs corresponding to their songs rather than a more original song?

For Blunt, musicians wrote a song for him "à la James Blunt" so to speak. It's a great song they had but they have improved to match his musical universe."

And for those of you who don't know Titeuf (including myself), here's a good resume:

Thanks jbfan132.

Here is the full article via google translate.

French to English translation
PTA meeting, the creator of Titeuf
In less than a generation, Titeuf has become a popular figure whose adventures are destined for both children and adults. In continuation of his work is now a film that will soon be in French cinema, a few days ahead of its soundtrack sung by some famous artists such as Jean Jacques Goldman, or Johnny Hallyday.


Twenty years after creating his character Titeuf, PTA offers a feature that will appear in theaters April 6. After the comic and cartoon, so it's on the big screen, and music that PTA reveals the universe which he calls unashamedly his "baby." The soundtrack for this film (in stores on March 21), occupying a prime position, is an opportunity for Francophone artists and popular international meet. We went to the PTA meeting to learn how to work with Johnny Hallyday, Jean Jacques Goldman, James Blunt and Gregory, among others, took place.



Meeting with PTA

"When I write lyrics Titeuf, are also mine that are conveyed. "
Titeuf is twenty years, a character, a comic, a cartoon, and now a movie. You participate fully in every project, taking instructions. It is a desire or rather the fear that you delegate control?
PTA: I like working by myself. I'm still very surrounded. For music in particular, I am surrounded by great artists a strong presence throughout the film. Afterwards, I'd say that especially Titeuf is my character. It's sort of my baby. Its existence is a miracle to me. I created and nobody really knows why he is so successful. One could draw many theories, of course. For me, the way to work on this character, it's about intimacy. When I write lyrics Titeuf, where even what his emotions, are also mine that are conveyed through this character. Based on this idea when I was offered this film, I immediately said yes, provided only that I am in control of the project. For music, it's exactly the same thing. I'm not a real musician, so I can not do it in its entirety. Still, I took matters in hand and asked for myself that I moved music Titeuf. So I need to surround myself with people whom I trust and who know Titeuf.

Titeuf yet continue to exist well beyond you.
No, this is not possible. It is related to me. This is my part of childhood and not that of someone else. This is also why I can not industrialize Titeuf: I can not explain who is Titeuf to others to make them do live by themselves.

Could you imagine a movie without music Titeuf?
What is certain is that I do not imagine without music. It is inherent in his world. I wanted there to be entertainment, space opera, watches, cowboy. The universe of Titeuf is simple: it's his room, its classification and school yard. It's all part of the imaginary character who can develop a film project.

"I had never written songs for artists like Sinatra and Souchon. "
And this imagination has been set to music by Jean Jacques Goldman, among others. This is because it is one of your friends it was easy working with him?
This is someone with whom I have a friendly relationship and to whom I trust. I would also say that Jean-Jacques is good advice because it does not try to make something up to serve his interests. I just sent him to ask him if he knew someone to do my music. At that time, I did not even call him and his team. Spontaneously, Jean-Jacques Goldman wanted to work on this music. He truly offer his services, explaining that he would tailor-made. It was also much easier for me to go into production with the knowledge that my project was supported by Jean-Jacques Goldman. It was a great experience for me. I had already written songs but never for the likes of Sinatra and Souchon. Outrageous!

There was also Johnny Hallyday. It's a surprise to combine the world of this artist with that of Titeuf.
The sequence in which it appears, it was clear to me that it would not work if Johnny really embodied the character. Once you hear his voice, we understand the nature of the character. It was he who brought this: image of a fighter who has been through everything. Here could be that if Johnny accepted, otherwise the sequence of the film disappeared.

The sequence of the film was made with Johnny, and Johnny. And participation in the B.O came next.
The sequence was written in that spirit. It was only after I wrote the song before a team's model. Everything was done in the spirit of the song Johnny. I'm not sure he was convinced by hearing my comp to me. Once the work is completed, it took the contact and waiting for his response fingers crossed. He quickly contacted us to accept. Then it's to meet him that time was long. At that time, he was in full tour. It was the summer of 2009. We had to actually record the songs before it can produce animations above. The soundtrack was recorded more than a year and a half in reality. It was also between two stages for him, and just before his health problems. It was not easy and although it was complicated, the timing was fortunate in the end.

Watch the video of the studio recording the soundtrack of "Titeuf"


All tracks were recorded in 2009?
No, not exactly. These are all the songs on which it is animation. The song girls, one of the striptease, Johnny ... They needed to be stored upstream, while the remaining pieces, which only appears on the album, did not need to be ready before. Is the case with that of James Blunt.

James Blunt on "Titeuf" is almost surreal. The alliance between the two worlds, that of Titeuf and singer, is the least original. I would add that it may be unexpected for this project.
From the moment we had Johnny Hallyday, Jean-Jacques, Francis Cabrel, Alain Souchon and Bénabar, it was much easier to have other artists. Obviously the record company was more willing to offer us. Moreover, the timings we have been profitable, which is not the case for all projects, especially in music.

"All the artists are willing to sing on this record, it was just great. "
Listening to the song by James Blunt, this is also true that with Alain Souchon, we notice that they are very similar to these two artists can produce by themselves. Why this desire to offer their securities to their corresponding pieces rather than more original?
For Blunt, musicians wrote a song for him to "James Blunt" so to speak. It's a great song they had but they have improved to match his world. Regarding the song Souchon, I had written well before offering. This is a song "titeufienne" because it involves issues peculiar to my character. Even before the film there, people told me that this title made them think Souchon. So it was obvious that he sings. This artist has a childish side that corresponded perfectly to the world of Titeuf. It was just appointed.

What artists were essential for you to this soundtrack?
All, each in their own way. They all talk about one aspect of the film and the character. They are essential. All artists willing to sing on this record, it was just great.

Jonathan HAMARD


It seems that muscians wrote the song to match James' type of music, and what a good match they did

Titeuf seems like such a character. Yes I would like to see the movie too Wolverine, do you think they will have this French movie in our cinemas? If not maybe we will have to wait to download it via itunes in the future? With subtitles I barely remember my French lessons at school, but if they say vous répéter la question s'il vous plaît' then I will understand it because I used this a lot in my oral exam

We'll go to see the film beginning of April, my girls are big fans!  

Really nice song....

Do you think I'll dare tell my husband one of the soundtrack song was composed and sung by James or just see if it recognizes his voice (which is more likely!)
