Te Quiero, Stromae

Stromae is well known for his house or party music. But his lyrics somehow don’t really fit this unreflected party hard business. Already Alors On Danse had this dancing despite spirit, meaning that it was more about the need for a change from everyday life, not necessarily about dancing because you feel that good.

Te Quiero is similar in this regard. So sure, you can dance to it if you do not think about the lyrics too much. Given that Te Quiero is more or less about what is likely to go wrong when it comes to relationships, eternal love, ’till death do us part, etc etc. Or even the ridiculous games at the start, it might as well be a stay away from the girl song (or whatever your orientation may be). Give it a listen, video and lyrics are telling:

Stromae ist in erster Linie für seine House- und Partymusik bekannt. Aber er schafft es, diese Partymusik mit eher tiefgründigen Texten zu verbinden, sodass es sich letztlich nicht wirklich um feel-good Musik handelt. Schon bei Alors On Danse ging es nicht um Party, da man sich besonders gut fühlt. Vielmehr handelte das Lied von Party, um den Rest des Lebens auszublenden.

Te Queiro ist in der Hinsicht ähnlich wie Alors On Danse. Klar, man kann dazu tanzen, wenn man den Text nicht beachtet. Aber grundsätzlich geht es hier ja darum, was bei Beziehungen alles schief laufen kann. Angefangen bei den lächerlichen Spielchen zu Beginn, bis hin zur völligen Entfremdung, obwohl am Anfang noch von ewiger Liebe, etc. die Rede war. So gesehen kann es dann auch ein Lied darüber sein, sich besser von potentiellen Partnern fernzuhalten, um das vorprogrammierte Fiasko zu vermeiden…

    Recently I’ve found an interesting site, Photoshopped Image Killer, that can detect fake images. Most image analysis software will be created to recognise shapes and objects. But this software is something which can trace manipulations. It’s not much more complex than recognising objects, but almost no one is interested in this kind of software except of course to detect if an image is real or fake…
