(Duet with Jean-Jacques Goldman) This is an up-tempo song with flights of voice which reveals Celine's energy.
Tracklist Live à Paris Video
This song speaks about a woman who couldn't imagine her life without her man, like Celine with Rene. We can remember that during the concert at the Stade de France in 1999, Celine was crying singing it, as we just learnt about Rene's cancer.
"With Le Ballet, Celine admits, it was the first time I sang Blues."
For Celine, in a way, it is a metaphor of her meeting with her audience.
Here, it evokes the intimate faiths in the things of life. The lyrics are strong, Celine addresses the sky.
It is Celine's favorite song on the album D'Eux. Jean-Jacques Goldman wrote it late in 1994.
"Pour que tu m'aimes encore, Celine tells, the first song heard, the first recorded, at once reminded me L'hymne à l'amour by Edith Piaf. The same subject, the same structure, the same woman consumed by love. It is a hymn to wild, possessed, possessive, definitive love, as mine... We knew while we were recording that now it will be part of my life."
There are two live versions of this song by Celine, one on Céline Dion À L'Olympia and the other on Live in Paris.
In 1995, Céline performed it in duet with Maurane and dedicated it to the victims of the floods in Saguenay, Quebec, Céline's native province
The original version was sung by Belgium's singer Jacques Brel who wrote the song in 1957.
"The day after my last concert at the Olympia (September 1994), Celine tells, Jean-Jacques Goldman sent me the demo of a song entitled Vole... Vole could be the continuation of Mélanie which Eddy Marnay wrote for me a few years ago; a song I dedicated to my little Karine, died the previous spring."
"I think that singing this song, Celine explains, shows to people that, someday, we loose people we love -we too- we seem to be somebody else everytime when we are on TV, but in real life, it touches us, it hurts us, so singing it, it helps us a lot, and we say to ourselves while we sing it : 'maybe somebody who is in the room is loosing someone at the moment and maybe it will help him to go through these difficult moments' because, for me, it helped me a lot."
