Irresistiblement
by Sylvie Vartan
#yeye #ye-ye #1960s #gogo #go-go #french #francais

I absolutely adore French singers of the 1960's, especially the Ye-ye style of music (which interestingly, was my gateway into 60's go-go dancing -- to American and British rock and pop tunes -- eventually joining Chicago dance troupe The Janes). I wish I could go back in time and hear Sylvie Vartan on French pop radio. Instead, our living room will have to do. I wanted to post a tune of hers here, and as I like most of them equally, decided to go with one that has an eye-catching video -- very much of the times.

More on Sylvie here (I had no idea she was Bulgarian until just this moment -- many thanks to this community forum for giving me the excuse to do some research):

Also -- lyrics in French, followed by an approximate English transalation.

Tout m'entraîne irrésistiblement vers toi, comme avant
Tout m'enchaîne irrésistiblement à toi, je le sens

Comme le jour revient après la nuit
Et le soleil toujours après la pluie
Comme un oiseau qui revient vers son nid
Vers mon amour je vais aussi

Tout m'entraîne irrésistiblement vers toi, à chaque instant
Tout m'enchaîne irrésistiblement à toi, je le sens

Comme la mer qui frappe le rocher
Obstinément, sans jamais désarmer
Par le malheur on est souvent frappé
Mais l'amour seul peut nous sauver

Tout m'entraîne irrésistiblement vers toi, à chaque instant
Tout m'enchaîne irrésistiblement à toi, je le sens

Comme la joie revient après les pleurs
Après l'hiver revient le temps des fleurs
Au moment où l'on croit que tout se meurt
L'amour revient en grand vainqueur

Tout m'entraîne irrésistiblement vers toi, comme avant
Tout m'enchaîne irrésistiblement à toi, je le sens

Everything draws me to you , irresistibly, as before
Everything binds me to you, I feel it

Like the day returns after the night
And the sun after the rain
Like a bird returning to its nest
Towards my love I fly also

Everything draws me to you, irresistibly, at each moment
Everything binds me to you, I feel it

Like the sea crashing on the rocks
Obstinately, without ever being disarmed
By misfortune we are often hit
But only love can save us

Everything draws me to you, irresistibly, as before
Everything binds me to you, I feel it

As joy returns after tears
After winter returns the time of flowers
At the moment when we think all is lost
Love conquers all

Everything draws me to you, irresistibly, as before
Everything binds me to you, I feel it
1968 - France
