Midweek Music Break: Yelle – Je Veux Te Voir

A day early this week, and with today being Bastille Day, we’ll throw a little French flavor into the mix:

I had probably listened to Yelle’s “Je Veux Te Voir” a hundred times before I bothered to look up the translated lyrics.  Even without understanding the content, it’s a great song with a playful beat and her voice is highlighted as the main driver of the song with an understated accompaniment.  It basically has all the great pop elements.

Then, to finally learn that this song was basically written to call out a misogynistic French rapper (with the the video being a play on that very objectification) makes this song all the greater.  Bravo, Yelle…bravo…
