Yelle – J’veux Un Chien

The the title translates to “I Want a Dog” but the song is not literal. The tune is about wanting to be with someone who is obedient but also knows when to take the reigns when pleasurable. Like I said, the song is not about having a pet dog. More like a pet male.

On the music front, Yelle knows how to craft a tune from beginning to end. Love that opening lead synth that ducks in time to push the beat ahead. Then the voice drops in without haste and we are off and running with some tension and bass. The chorus builds on the original theme set in the intro and concludes with satisfying release. This track can be found on their latest release L’ère du verseau (The Age of Aquarius) which is a great come back from a six year break.
