Category: Tracklist On Ne Change Pas
This song was released as a promotional radio single in Poland.
Moreover, it will be part of the soundtrack for the animated movie Asterix et les Vikings. The french movie is set to be released in France and Belgium on April 12, 2006.
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."
The music and the voice are sweet and soothing.
"When Jean-Jacques sang in front of us 'S'il suffisait d'aimer', Celine tells, Rene and I, we cried like babies."
"If there were one track to choose on this album, Celine reveals, it would be without hesitating, 'S'il suffisait d'aimer'... because for me, it's like 'Quand on n'a que l'amour' by Brel, it's strong."
"Sometimes, Celine follows, the technique is perfect and the emotion is not there, so well it's not really good, we have to coordinate both at the same time, it's difficult, but I think I almost managed with 'S'il suffisait d'aimer'."
(Duet with Garou) (2001) Céline sang the song Sous le vent with Garou on his album 'Seul'.
"Of course I'm a passionate girl and the people around me is very important, Celine reveals. For exemple, this is what the song Tout l'or des hommes says. Everything I do, traveling round the world, having money, maybe is important, but the main point is having the people you love around you. There is always a part of me which well stands rooted to the spot. My head floats in the clouds but my feet well stand rooted to the earth! 'All the gold in the world, is nothing if you are far from me - All the love in the world is not worth anything anymore, so above all don't change', I love you just like this, I love you for your real worthes."
"It is a song, Jacques Veneruso tells, which came out when I thought about her, yes she is an international star, she have all what we call wealth, but the most important is the human worth and the relation with the others."
First extract from the album 1 Fille & 4 Types, on radio since August 27, the single Tout l'or des hommes releases on October 06, 2003.
The video for Tout l'or des hommes, a road movie conceived by Céline herself, has been shot early in May 2003 in Nevada desert under Yannick Saillet's direction who had already directed the video for Zora sourit. Céline appears as a singer of a group which travels with the hapiness which their music brings them.
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.
Celine's voice is soft, full of indulgence and a little homesicknessly.
"I, Celine admits, I think that people don't really change, and when Jean-Jacques presented me this song, I was very thrilled, because, every day, when I travel, when I'm on stage, when I make up, when I put high heels, when I tape a show, it's sure that there's always that "thin little girl" who comes from Charlemagne, who is shy but who wonders, who wants to travel the world, but she's lean and quite fragile... She's there every time."
"Our childhood is full of feelings and sometimes it's hard, but singing it, it's wonderful!"
With this track, it is the action, the change, the travel. Celine is beating and powerful. The guitar is less used to leave more place with the keyboard and the percussions which revitalize the piece.
Fabienne Thibeault originally perfomed this song on the rock musical Starmania.
