Alors On Danse (So We Dance!)

Today I’m going to talk about Stromae! He is a singer from Belgian-Rwandan. His real name is Paul van Haver. He became famous in few weeks recently, over song called ” Alors on danse” This song become number one hit not only in Europe, but in many countries. His first album came out in 2007 called “Juste un cerveau, un flow, un fond et un mic..” but it didn’t got so popular. In 2010 Music Manager, was impressed by the talent of Stromae’s first single ‘Alors on danse’ and decided to air it for the first time ever on NRJ. The audience reacted entousiastically and the career of Stromae was launched. He rapidly became N.1 in sales In Belgium, than in other countries. And they made him sign a 4 years contract. If the  music manger didn’t air his song, this song would never would been heard, wouldn’t been so popular. When music got played thousand times, you will get used to it, and you will like it and of course if the song is good too. So thats how media works always someone needs to hold from your hand, so you will get to a good point in life, but of course if you want to be in this business.  the song is talking about stress, problems in life and to get rid of them he is says “so we dance” let everything go so we dance…. enjoy the music…

what is this song about ? its in french and there is the  translation

Alors On Danse

So we dance (x3)
He who say study, says work
Qui dit taf te dit les thunes, (These I don’t understand)
He who says money, says expenses
He who says credit says credit (dealing with the nature of having credit)
He who says debt tells you to go usher
Yes, tells you to sit down in the sh*t
He who says love, says kids,
Says always and says divorce

He who says close tells you of sadness because the problems do not come one by one
He who says crisis says to you the world, says third-world
He who says fatigue says wake again ignorant of it (literally deaf from the old, this is probably an expression that I am not familiar with not being a native french speaker.)
On we go, forgetting all of these problems

And so we dance (x9)
And you tell yourself that this is as far as it will go because any worse would be death
And you believe in the end that you are finished with it, but there is more to come still! (not sure here)
Ecstasy says problem, the problems or the music. (not sure here, either)
This takes you for the ride, it grabs you by the head, and you pray for it to stop
But this is your body, this isn’t heaven, so you speak more than you listen
And you cry out even louder as it persists

So we sing
Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala,
So we sing
Lalalalalala, Lalalalalala

So we sing (x2)
And then only when this is over, so we dance
And so we dance (x7)
And it still goes on
