Nous a French pop song from 1978 by Hervé Vilard


I had an auditory flashback whereby I realized why Bowie’s 1971 Life on Mars always felt familiar to me yet not quite right. Because I thought it was my favorite song when I was a kid, but it wasn’t. In fact, it was this French song from 1978 by Hervé Vilard. I think if you listen you can understand my confusion. Not the same, and yet…

Nous c’est une illusion qui meurt,
D’un éclat de rire en plein coeur
Une histoire de rien du tout
Comme il en existe beaucoup …

For comparison. Plus, you need an excuse to listen again to the late, great Bowie.
