Do You Have To Speak French? My Love of Julien Dore

The winner of the 15th season of France’s version of American Idol (A La Recherche De La Nouvelle Star) was Julien Dore.  He’s quirky, adorable, and has a good, contemporary singing voice.  You can find quite a few songs he has done in English, but he is, afterall, the winner of the FRENCH verion of Pop Idol, so he is primarily a FRENCH performer. 

He has one song called Les Limites, which I think is fabulous!  It’s got a quirky little video – three of them actually – attached to it, and it’s a peppy, funky little song.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH4khf0AM7k Go – listen to it – you’ll enjoy it. 

But do you have to know French to enjoy the song?  I’ve found a pretty literal translation, which is hard enough to read in English, but I don’t think it matters.  He could be saying his name over and over, it’s just a fun song to listen to. 

Does it matter?
