Eurovision Song Contest 2017: France – “Requiem” By Alma

Eurovision Song Contest 2017: France -

Eurovision 2017 – France

The France song is called “Requiem” and performed by Alma.

ARTIST

Alma is 28 years old and the eldest of three sisters. Alongside singing she also plays the piano and started writing songs whilst she was on her travels. After finishing a business degree, she decided to devote herself to her lifelong passion; music and so she moved to Paris to pursue her dream. It was in the French capital that she met songwriter Nazim, who has also written for Amir, who finished 6th for France in the Eurovision Song Contest last year. Nazim wrote most of the songs of Alma’s debut album which will be released on 5th May 2017.

“I’m deeply honoured to have been selected to represent my country, France, at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest”, said Alma. “I strongly hope to count on the public’s love and support to deliver the best performance possible”, she added.

Alma is an emerging star on digital platforms and has been named as one of the most promising young artists of 2017. Whilst she deals with universal themes including love and even death, Alma brings a very personal approach.

SONG

The song Requiem was written and composed by Nazim Khaled.

OPINION

It’s sung in French so that’s always a good start as far as I’m concerned. It has a nice build up to a very funky chorus and I did find myself swaying along on the first listen so I’m sure I will grow to like it even more.

PREDICTION

Although it’s good and I do like it – will it stand out? I’m not so sure. However if this is backed up by an AMAZING performance I can see this having a big affect on the left hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

‘Des amours meurent
Des amours naissent
Les siècles passent et disparaissent
Ce que tu crois être la mort
C’est une saison et rien de plus
Un jour lassé de cette errance
Tu t’en iras quelle importance
Car la Terre tournera encore
Même quand nous ne tournerons plus

Embrasse-moi, dis-moi que tu m’aimes
Fais-moi sourire au beau milieu d’un requiem
Embrasse-moi, dis-moi que tu m’aimes
Fais-moi danser jusqu’à ce que le temps nous reprenne
Ce qu’il a donné

Will you take me to paradise
With you nothing ever dies
You take my smile and make it bright
Before the night erase the light
I won’t go below silver skies
The only dark is in your eyes
On pleure mais on survit quand même
C’est la beauté du requiem

Les étincelles deviennent des flammes
Les petites filles deviennent des femmes
Ce que tu crois être l’amour
C’est un brasier et rien de plus
Nos déchirures, nos déchéances
On pense qu’elles ont de l’importance

Mais demain renaîtra le jour
Comme si nous n’avions pas vécu
Embrasse-moi, dis-moi que tu m’aimes
Fais-moi sourire au beau milieu d’un requiem
Embrasse-moi, dis-moi que tu m’aimes
Fais-moi danser jusqu’à ce que le temps nous reprenne
Ce qu’il a donné

Will you take me to paradise
With you nothing ever dies
You take my smile and make it bright
Before the night erase the light
I won’t go below silver skies
The only dark is in your eyes
On pleure mais on survit quand même
C’est la beauté du requiem

Des amours naissent
des amours meurent
Ce soir enfin je n’ai plus peur
Je sais que je t’aimerai encore
Quand la Terre ne tournera plus
Des amours naissent
des amours meurent
Ce soir enfin je n’ai plus peur
Je sais que je t’aimerai encore
Quand la Terre ne tournera plus

Embrasse-moi, dis-moi que tu m’aimes
Fais-moi sourire au beau milieu d’un requiem
Embrasse-moi, dis-moi que tu m’aimes
Fais-moi danser jusqu’à ce que le temps nous reprenne

Embrasse moi tell me that you love me
Embrasse moi
Embrasse moi tell me that you love me
Embrasse moi’
