Mireille Mathieu is one of these French singers that are more famous in Russia than in their own country Regular smile

I don't really get the idea of this collection. "moody" applies to a lot of different songs, even to whole genres.
Or did you have something more specific in mind?

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Mon, 23/09/2019 - 01:57

Heart wrenching French songs, Pierre. No death implied or otherwise... Rooftops...

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 18:02

I was answering to Pierre on what he might suggest. You can send a link if you like something.
Don't mock me today, if you can help it.

SchnurrbratSchnurrbrat    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 19:59

You asked for the link and I dutifully provided.

After giving it some thought, I decided that this Moby's single can't be #1 in songs about depression. This one is. 

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 05:30

Brat likes this singer. I found her in his collection along with Derkin's margarita (that I really like.)
But the song you linked, while it perfectly expresses how I presently feel, isn't my cup of tea.

silencedsilenced    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 18:37

What could be more heart-wrenching than a crying angel? No need for clumsy words.

JadisJadis    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 18:45

I'm already sobbing like a full elephant football-team over spilt milk : this one is in Russian, but there absolutely must be Greek ones too, like this one for instance (but there are lots of them).

JadisJadis    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 19:13

Let's support French (real) artists ! (with real lyrics, music and voice) : here.

JadisJadis    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 19:48

Mouais, y'a du texte, mais ça ne m'a pas trop pris aux tripes (j'ai d'abord cru que c'était Greta Thunberg qui s'était mise au français). Je ne sais pas si ça entre dans la catégorie "moody".

silencedsilenced    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 19:55

Des gamines de 18 ans capable de faire ça, je n'en connais pas beaucoup. Ce n'est pas du Brassens, mais ça s'en rapproche en évitant le ridicule. Beaucoup ont essayé, peu ont réussi.
Le son est médiocre sur cette vidéo, mais sur d'autres on peut voir qu'elle ne chante pas mal du tout.

JadisJadis    Thu, 26/09/2019 - 19:59

Oui, je n'ai rien contre, je trouve ça plutôt pas mal (surtout en ces temps de décadence généralisée), mais je me demandais si c'était pertinent ici.

silencedsilenced    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 09:40

C'est le "with real lyrics, music and voice" qui m'a fait penser à elle. Et le morceau tirerait des larmes à un caillou, non ?

vevvevvevvev    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 10:50

I don't really understand the idea of this collection myself...
In my opinion, the song just has to please whoever is offering and Deanna will include it in the compilation if she likes.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 11:54

I already told Pierre once. The idea is to have songs suited to a moody state of mind. No death/suicide offers, thanks.I also offered to put this collection in draft if you guys don't like it.
Purpose: If you were to be in a gloomy state, but didn't want to sink further, you could come and look at these songs, maybe even pick the one that speaks to you and translate it - that's what I'm doing. It helps me - maybe it would help others.
So, do tell if I need to pull it down.

vevvevvevvev    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 13:47

Так я правильно понял, что надо предлагать песни поднимающие настроение?

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 13:52

Женечка, настроение грустное. So is the entire selection of these songs. I loved all the suggestions, you likely noticed as I thanked for some of them even if I didn't add them into this collection.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 13:58

If you want to understand this collection, watch the entry I deleted because it isn't the song, but dance that speaks for me.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 11:56

Not for the collection, but medicinal!

JadisJadis    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 16:34

Oh, I nearly forgot that one  : the absolute must !
Cry smile Cry smile Cry smile
 

JadisJadis    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 16:43

Wait! In English, it's tragic, but the original in Hungarian is simply unbearable... (0:45 in the video)

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 17:46

Here, in contrition, I reworked an old joke for you, Philippe
A man is having a rough time parallel parking.
Forward - hits the car in front.
Backs up - hits the car behind.
A blond policewoman walks up to him: "monsieur, when are we intending to park?"

silencedsilenced    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 17:05

You're safe with Billie. She turned it all into a dream. The Hungarian is the real deal.

JadisJadis    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 17:10

Oh sorry, I thought you were asking for gloomy songs, and I really couldn't find anything more gloomy...
OK, we're going for a walk, my thick skull and I...

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 17:38

Peas in the pod...
No suicide and death...

silencedsilenced    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 17:41

What do you mean? Neither of these songs is about suicide or death. Just plain breakups.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 17:46

I can feel The soil falling over my head
See, the sea wants to take me
The knife wants to slit me

Trying my best to avoid the imagery

silencedsilenced    Fri, 27/09/2019 - 17:48

These are only metaphors. The guy is dying of shame. The song really is about unrequited love.
"it's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate. It takes strength to be gentle and kind..."

JadisJadis    Sat, 28/09/2019 - 06:26

Hmmm, gloomy, but only moderately gloomy... if I understood it all right. That's not very easy.

silencedsilenced    Sat, 28/09/2019 - 06:28

Which one? "I know it's over" ?

JadisJadis    Sat, 28/09/2019 - 06:39

I'm trying to identify Deanna's target...

silencedsilenced    Sat, 28/09/2019 - 06:42

Ah ok. Play it by ear then. As long as nobody dies in the end, it should be ok.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Sat, 28/09/2019 - 08:27

Btw,
I discovered a new, to me, artist, Iris Hond. Amazing. I'll try to add her music. Look her up, if you are interested and let me know what you think, P&P.

silencedsilenced    Sat, 28/09/2019 - 21:52

She sounds adorable. Apparently she mostly plays classical music. I could only find a couple of songs.

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Sat, 28/09/2019 - 22:09

Common, you must have had an overkill of the "refined" poetry - she looks adorable, she plays with the soul dripping from her fingers, she has social conscience... Dream girl for any man!

silencedsilenced    Sun, 29/09/2019 - 05:36

Dream girls are in no short supply. I, alas, am no dream boy.
But yes, she sounds too nice and humane to be true. And she's beautiful too.
