The recent events in France made me wanna listen again to one of my all-time favorite album, Year Zero from Nine Inch Nails, recorded in 2007. This concept album is about a distopian fascist USA in 2022, and also about an otherwordly presence that tries to warn humanity that if they don't get their stuff together, they're facing extinction.

Nine Inch Nails - Meet Your Master

Bow down in position
Against the polished steel
This is something different
You'll like the way this feels
No time for asking question
No time for wondering
We've heard enough from you now
We've heard everything
We're going to play a new game
You'll put on this blindfold
You'll do what we tell you
You'll do as you're told
Used to be the leader
But now comes the time to serve
Maybe we show some mercy
Maybe you get what you deserve

Count down to the end
Gotta make it come faster
Right around the bend
Is a coming disaster, disaster
Count down to the end
And we're headed there faster
Come on down my friend
It's time to meet your master

You've left quite a mess here
Under your stewardship
You though you'd figured it out but
You'll learn your place in this
Might take some convincing
For you to see the truth
There are so many things
We've got in store for you

Count down to the end
Gotta make it come faster
Right around the bend
Is a coming disaster
Count down to the end
And we're headed there faster
Come on down my friend
It's time to meet your master (meet your master)

Come on down, come on down, come on down
Come on down, come on down, come on down
Come on down, come on down, come on down
Come on down, come on down, come on down
Come on down, come on down, come on down
Come on down, come on down, come on down
Come on down, come on down, come on down

J'ai retrouvé avec joie une chanson qui était dans les répertoires des fêtes (mariages, noêl jour de l'an...) de ma jeunesse et qui aujourd'hui est presque "hors la loi"... rien qu'avec le titre "Big Bisous". aussi, j'ai pensé la déposer ici en vous souhaitant à tous "Big bisous.... embrassez-vous!"



I found with joy a song that was in the repertoires of the parties (weddings, Christmas, New Year's Day...) of my youth and that today is almost "outlawed"... just with the title "Big Bisous". so, I thought I'd drop it here wishing you all "Big bisous.... Embrassez-vous!"



Approchez, approchez,

On va danser le Big Bisou

Big Bisous en Anglais, ça veut dire gros baiser'.

Quand je vous le dirai,

Donnez-vous un baiser moelleux

A l'endroit que je vous indiquerai.



Nos grands-pères et nos grand-mères,

Faisaient tellement de manières,

Qu'ils mettaient parfois jusqu'à 100 ans pour s'embrasser.

C'est un souvenir du joli temps passé, dépassé.

Ralliez-vous, au Big Bisou !



Et d'abord,

Sur la main, style ancien, noble et tout.

Attention, sur la main, embrassez vousStop !

Big Bisou Big Bisou !

Juste après, de plus près, sur la joue.

Attention, sur la joue, embrassez-vousStop.

Big Bisou Big Bisou !



Les parents de nos parents étaient quelquefois marrants ;

Ils pensaient que les bébés ça vient en s'embrassant.

C'est un souvenir du joli temps d'avant,

Mais maintenant,

On s'en fout, Big Bisou

Plus hardi, le bibi, dans le cou.

Attention dans le cou embrassez-vousStop

Big Bisou Big Bisou !

Enchaînez, sur le nez, ah, pas dessous.

Attention, sur le nez, embrassez-vousstop.

Big Bisou Big Bisou !



Les timides et les maladroits, n'osent pas faire le premier pas

Méfiez-vous, plus rien n'est défendu

Quand on fait la danse du Big Bisou.

Big Bisou !



Émotion, grand frisson, sur la bouche.

Attention, sur la bouche, embrassez-vous

Encore, encore, encore, encore.

Stop !

Big Bisou Big Bisou !



Sur la main, style ancien, noble et tout Big Bisou.

Juste après, de plus près, sur la joue, Big Bisou.

Plus hardi, le bibi, dans le cou, Big Bisou !

Enchaînez, sur le nez, pas dessous, Big Bisou !

Émotion, grand frisson, sur la bouche, Big Bisous.




Come on in, come on in,

We're going to dance the Big Kiss

Big Bisous in English means big kiss'.

When I tell you,

Give yourself a big, soft kiss

In the place I'll tell you.



Our grandfathers and grandmothers,

Were so full of manners,

It took them up to a hundred years to kiss each other.

It's a reminder of the good old days, gone by.

Let's join the Big Kiss!



And first,

On the hand, old style, noble and all.

Be careful, on the hand, kiss you Stop!

Big Kiss Big Kiss!

Just after, closer, on the cheek.

Careful, on the cheek, kiss yourself Stop.

Big Kiss Big Kiss!



Our parents' parents were sometimes funny;

They thought that babies come from kissing.

It's a memory of the good old days,

But now,

Who cares, Big Kiss?

Bolder, the bibi, in the neck.

Careful in the neck kiss Stop

Big Kiss Big Kiss!

Careful, on the nose, ah, not under.

Careful, on the nose, kiss stop.

Big Kiss Big Kiss!



The shy and the clumsy, do not dare to make the first step

Beware, nothing is forbidden anymore

When you do the Big Kiss dance.

Big Kiss!



Emotion, big thrill, on the mouth.

Attention, on the mouth, kiss yourself

Again, again, again, again.

Stop!

Big Kiss Big Kiss!



On the hand, old style, noble and all Big Kiss.

Just after, closer, on the cheek, Big Bisou.

Bolder, on the neck, Big Kiss!

Next, on the nose, not under it, Big Bisou!

Emotion, big thrill, on the mouth, Big Kiss.
