Olivier Dion has released another fun single this summer! His latest single is “Je t’aime, c’est tout” (I love you, that is all). It’s for the play and the comedy musical “The Three Musketeers” that is going to take place in France, starting September 26, 2016.
The song is fitting for the play. I can imagine a modern choreography for this song, which reminds of the film version of the “The Three Musketeers ”, the version starring Gene Kelly. . Since the song is for The Three Musketeers, I can visualize the moment D’artagnan sees Constance for the first time, and it’s love at first sight.
Love is a common theme, including love at first sight. Olivier Dion talks throughout the song about how much he loves her, but feels nervous and happy at the same time. It’s a simple song. Also some use of repetition where he talks about men not being ready for love. Example in the following verse:
“Les hommes ne sont pas faits pour, pour l’amour
Mais plutôt pour les détours, aller simple
It demonstrates that nobody feels “ready” for love, it just happens, there’s no control, you can’t do anything about it. It can feel overwhelming.
As for beat, it’s contemporary and fast-pace instead of a slow rhythm. It has a summer beat, similar to his other hit “Si j’étais son soleil” (link below). The melody is structured and flows at a perfect speed.
The video compliments the song very nicely as it shows the reference to the story of The Three Musketeers. Enjoy the video! 🙂
