Please help me find the name of this song smile

(Shamelessly posting for traffic blush).

I know you’re all absolute ninjas when it comes to finding out names of songs and books with next to no information.

I’ve just heard a French song (it was sort of like dance-y, dreamy, house, ambient music - that’s the best way I can describe it) with lyrics that were quite hard to make out. It was either sung by a group or a solo singer - it sounded like a man’s voice.

The lyrics that I could make it were these: ‘le temps passe’, ‘je n’ai jamais cru’ and ‘jamais revenu’.

Could anyone help please? smile

The second one sounds most like what you've described.

Can you google the words and 'lyrics' - I've found a few songs this way.
Also, if it was on a radio station, go on their site and search for the programme's playlist.

For example...

Have you tired googling the words and then cross referencing them in YouTube?

WellAlwaysHaveParis Thu 08-Feb-18 20:24:36

Thanks so much everyone. I’ve tried Googling the words then adding ‘lyrics’ and ‘paroles’, but I haven’t found the song yet unfortunately. I think it’s too recent to be Charles Aznavour. It’s more sort of trance-y and electronic-y.

Where did you hear it, in a shop, on radio, TV?

WellAlwaysHaveParis Thu 08-Feb-18 20:55:34

Lascelles I heard it on someone’s personal Spotify account at work. It was playing on a speaker, but I didn’t know whose music it was.

Any more for any more? smile

Jian is the most recent French artist I can recall - helpful?

How big is your workplace? I think you need to find the owner of the playlist

Could it be Le temps passe, sung by Johnny Hallyday with Storm Bugsy, Doc Gyneco and Passi?

Taytotots Fri 09-Feb-18 01:40:47

I thought it might be air but can't find one of theirs with those lyrics. Could it be this - (elephanz - je n'ais jamais)

Christine and the queens have some English/ French hybrid songs and are quite dreamy and Trancy. Worth taking a look at

BendyBusBuggy Fri 09-Feb-18 02:31:51

Ca plane pour moi by plastic Bertrand?

Mupflup Fri 09-Feb-18 06:49:56

My guess would be Air, Christine and the Queens, or possibly Nouvelle Vague. I'm not even sure NV are French but they do a lot of covers sometimes in different languages

WellAlwaysHaveParis Fri 09-Feb-18 18:36:52

Thanks everyone for your suggestions!

It’s not Plastic Bertrand, Elephanz or Jonny Hallyday.

WellAlwaysHaveParis Fri 09-Feb-18 18:37:53

Whoops sorry. Posted too soon. It could be Christina and the Queens. I’ll have a look smile

Manu Chao?

GlitterUnicornsAndAllThatJazz Fri 09-Feb-18 18:43:32

Gael Faure - La Saison ?

GlitterUnicornsAndAllThatJazz Fri 09-Feb-18 18:44:48

I'm nearly 100% sure thats the song you're after
