Stromae

24 Feb

Over the weekend I discovered this catchy song from the Belgian rapper Stromae.  It’s a fun, bouncy song up until the point where you really listen to (or translate, depending on how good your French is) the lyrics.  Turns out, this dance song is about a young boy lamenting his absent father.  It’s somewhat autobiographical in nature, which makes it even sadder.  Still, I can’t help but sing and dance along.  It really is that good.
