Michel Polnareff – C’Est Ta Ta Ta Ta

The post below was written in September 2006 and marks the early days of my infatuation with the French iconic musician.

Original post – 28/09/2006

I’ve written somewhere that I adore Michel Polnareff, but now I also adore all web users who’ve collected and uploaded his videos for me to find them and to go totally mad with the man. 🙂 I’ve heard many of his songs before, but watching him perform, especially those early songs, is a different kind of experience. So much so that I’ve embedded one of his videos, ‘Ta Ta Ta Ta’, on my blog. It sounds like a medieval troubadour song, with a modern twist, and medieval music is one of my weaknesses. And so is Michel Polnareff.


The woman I love is ta-ta-ta,
The woman I love, she is not you.
The woman I love is ta-ta-ta,
The woman I love, she is not you.

I call myself your friend
And yet when your eyes
Meet with mine
I feel guilty,
I feel unhappy
But I can do nothing about it.


I would love to talk to you
And to explain
But can find no words
I make up my mind
But I always leave it
Until tomorrow


And what you take
For a song
That you like a lot
Is my declaration
Made my way
But you don’t understand it
