ARTHUR H – Est-ce que tu aimes ?

From the album Adieu Tristesse (2005)

Arthur Higelin (1966-), better known under his stage name Arthur H, is a French pianist, songwriter and singer. He is best known in France for his live performances—four of his albums were recorded live. He is the son of the French singer Jacques Higelin and Nicole Courtois, and half brother of singers Izïa Higelin and stage and film actor, theatre director and music video director Kên Higelin.

After traveling in the West Indies, he studied music in Boston before returning to Paris and developing his eclectic but highly personal musical style, drawing on such influences as Thelonious Monk, Serge Gainsbourg, the Sex Pistols, jazz, blues, Middle Eastern music and the tango. He first performed in 1988 in clubs in Paris, as leader of a trio with bassist Brad Scott and drummer Paul Jothy.

His first album, Arthur H (1990), combined rhythmic experimentation and bal-musette elements with a vocal style which has been compared to Tom Waits. He toured widely around this time, particularly in France and Japan, adding a fourth band member, Jon Handelsman (saxophone), and produced a second album, Bachibouzouk (1992). In early 1993, he did a six-week season at the Magic Mirrors, an antique circus big top, which was later put on as a touring show and recorded on the live album En chair et en os.

In 1996, he released the album Trouble Fête, following which he performed a season at the Gymnase in Paris. The live album Fête Trouble (1997) included some tracks from these shows as well as others recorded on tour in Africa. He toured the United States and Canada in 1998.

Est-ce que tu aimes dans les westerns
Quand les Indiens kidnappent la nouvelle femme du shérif?
Oui, j’aime

Est-ce que tu aimes dans les westerns
Quand les Indiens transforment la jeune blanche en une sublime squaw?
Oui, j’aime
Bon, alors

Nous irons vivre libre dans un pays sauvage
Et nos armes seront l’amour et le courage
Mon ami, n’aie pas peur, je saurai te défendre
Et d’un bon coup de botte sonner les serpents à sonnette
Les serpents à sonnette
Les serpents à sonnette

Est-ce que tu aimes dans les westerns
Quand le héros s’en va, seul comme un chien?
Oui, j’aime
Est-ce que tu aimes dans les westerns
Quand le héros revient et descend calmement tous ces vieux ennemis?
Oui, j’aime
Bon alors

Nous irons vivre libre dans un pays sauvage
Et nos armes seront l’amour et le courage
Mon ami, n’aie pas peur, je saurai te défendre
Et d’un bon coup de botte sonner les serpents à sonnette
Les serpents à sonnette
Les serpents à sonnette

Yeah
Whou-hou

Est-ce que tu aimes dans les westerns
Quand le héros seul, sous la lune dompte un pur-sang noir?
Oui, j’aime bien, j’aime, j’aime
Est-ce que tu aimes dans les westerns
Quand, au bordel une jeune chanteuse moqueuse
Rend fous de désir, fous de désir, tous les cow-boys?
Comme ça, ouais
Oui, j’aime
Ho hou-ho, j’aime, j’aime, okay, bon
Alors

La-la-la-la, la la
La-la, la-la, la
La-la, la-la
La-la, la la

Mon ami, n’aie pas peur, je saurai te défendre
Et d’un bon coup de botte sonner les serpents à sonnette
Sonner les serpents à sonnette
Sonner les serpents à sonnette

Est-ce que tu aimes dans les westerns?
Oui, j’aime
