J'en Ai Marre

My favorite French singer Alizée, with her song "J'en Ai Marre". This song came out way back in 2003, but nevertheless, it's still something I listen to, as well as love. She's not bad in her live performance either. There's also an English version called "I'm Fed Up". The French version makes more sense. She's pretty much singing about the real world being a drag and everything and so she takes a long nice bath to get away from it all. It's better in French, but the way she says "water", is delicious.

I first became aware of Alizee back in my senior year of high school when I was corresponding with a female French student living in Lyon as part of a project for my 4th year French language studies course at my high school. She sent me a cd of one of Alizee's albums and somehow I became a fan ever since. I actually had a poster of the French pop singer taped on my locker door. I have to admit, at that time, I also had this huge crush on Alizee. It's long gone now, although I do have to say her music is the only thing in French that I can actually remember the lyrics and sing along to. A way I can practice my French these days, I guess. Though in all honesty, I had long outgrown my fandom of Alizee over the years, I still listen to her music.
