It's throwback time again! For this post, it will be about the use of breath in song. To recap, your humble blogger posted about it here. There's another song to add to the list. *drumroll*
Je Cours by Stromae

The translation of the title is "I run". In apropos fashion, the sound of a runner breathing can be heard during the chorus. An English translation of the song can be found here . In light of the lyrics, it's easy to see how the use of breath in the song can give a deeper sense of what is being conveyed.
