Mylène Farmer: Je te dis Tout video
The new Mylène Farmer video has surfaced, just a short time after it was confirmed that Je te dis Tout was to be released as the second single from her Monkey Me album that was released in December.
Her previous single À l'ombre gave her another number one hit in France, it would be no surprise if this song continued to add to her score of 13 number one singles in France since 1988's Pourvu qu'elles soient douces, nine of these since 2008.
With Mylène Farmer, videos have always been almost as important as the songs themselves, and this one continues that tradition.
It's a great song and a memorable video, and I reckon that a video for a ballad is a more difficult proposition than one for a dance track.
For videos for songs like this, the cinematography matter more than the choreography, and there's more space for imagination in how a song can be portrayed.
More tasteful work here, and I reckon it will be a while until wes see Lady Gaga or Madonna come up with anything like this.
