Yvalain - Songwriter, Guitar, Electronic Production - "The Quest For The Holy Grail" an original song by Yvalain This is my last post before Christmas and I wish everybody a Merry Christmas, especially to you if you're alone on that day. "The Quest For The Holy Grail" is one of my Top 5 songs of mine ever. It contains a concentration of everything I wanted to give to the world: the high consciousness of how men's life is a tragedy. Looking for the Holy Grail, searching happiness, so many quests in vain but without which we couldn't survive! That fundamental searches are always there, behind even the silly things that we do. Yvalain: composer, guitars, digital instruments, programmed note by note Zwell: vocal Recorded in 2009, remastered in 2012.

Today's pain for a much better land One single tear, a spring on the sand Quite ready to drop Is there somebody here for me? I need you, I need you so bad Is there anybody for me? Cos' I long for a new day A day without whispers and cries and sweat and tears How many years from now To find us above the law Let's escape the fate of the beast Guess in the shade they made you a feast In many years from now The quest for the Holy Grail A way to break out of jail Here we are for ever insane Every day is fading the lane Of the quest for the Holy Grail

Yvalain's - SHE'S BEEN LOVED introducing Sean T. Wright on vocals It's a bittersweet romantic song that many boys who try to understand the beautiful sex may have sung in their heart All credits are within the video. Lyrics (slightly rearranged by Sean) She's feeling quiet, relaxed and innocent Is this something in the air? She's got peace in her heart deep inside She's got flowers in her hair Why do you want her now, can't you see she's free? She's been loved today It doesn't matter what you say It doesn't matter, oh no, cos’ she's been loved She's the master of the universe Can't you see it in her eyes? She's got not pity for you my friend She can get plenty of your kind Why do you want her now, can't you see she's free She's been loved today… She's not as strong as you may think brother She's got the power that you give her She was told she was a pretty little girl For sure, that won't last forever She's been loved today… (c) Yvalain Sean's music: https://soundcloud.com/sean-t-wright Thank you all for your support

BACK AGAIN (remix), an original composition by Yvalain with Jacques Delorenzi: vocals, creator of all harmonies Yvalain: bass, guitars, special effects I had to repost that one with a correct mix, as Jacques was unhappy with the initial mix because the vocals were out of rhythm (my mistake - I was so excited by this song that I've posted {18 months ago} without waiting for his agreement). So now it is repaired, and Jacques was right: the vocals are now well in the rhythm and really powerful. This is a protest song about the madness of a world where everyone is brought to stand against his brother. Lyrics: Back Again, I wont look back Behind my shoulders big black clouds Back Again, I wont back down Ill find a way out deep blue skies Back Again, Where have you been For me no stone to rest my head All your little lies, you know Im fed up with no truth Listen As stranger as he can be A disarmed man walks alone A loser without any key Watch him back home There's no welcome Back Again, What should I know I can't remember the happy days Back Again, A single blow Anything's good to feel OK Back Again, What do you mean By saying: I've never met him What a little lie, you know I'm fed up with no truth Listen Nobody's playing in the street What kind of world has risen while he was away A failing ground under the feet Where are the thoughts, where are the words he used to say?

LAZY CAT by Yvalain with Jacques Delorenzi on vocals A song dedicated to my favorite companion on this planet: Sir Cat! Video realized with some family footage, plus additional pictures credited in the film. Lyrics: Lazy cat Lying there Still and quiet It's not fair As I'm gonna go to work As I'm gonna go to work Why should a man break his back every day To earn a day of leisure I know, I know I dont know I must say Thats just the human way To blow his days away Lazy cat Still asleep Getting fat kiss me goodbye As I'm gonna go to work As I'm gonna go to work Why should a man leave his home every day To fight with the entire world Im gonna cry Tell me why Tell me why Today Im feeling blue I aint got a clue Id love to live like you my lazy cat Gazing at butterflies I know, I know It cant be It cant be Im just a daydreamer hanging in summer Lazy cat Lying there Still and quiet It's not fair...

Yvalain's HEALING BROKEN WINGS a music inspired and dedicated to these adults who experienced any sort of abuse in their childhood. Their troubles are underestimated most of the time as nobody knows what happened in the past, even sometimes the one with broken wings when his/her memory is too painful to remember anything. It's a song of hope however. The light can be found, despite the terrible past. Those who reach the light are wonderful people that our world needs. Yvalain play guitars, whistles and programmes the orchestral instruments. The first part explains musically the torments experienced and the questioning. The second part describes the deliverance that can finally happen, on a waltz rhythm including a French waltz with joy and melancholy mixed. Thank you for your support

Yvalain's YOU'RE ALWAYS THERE introducing Jacques Delorenzi on vocals and Yvalain on instruments It's a song about doubts and feeling the universe vacuity. Lyrics: 1. What are the things, these possessions? I wonder who’s possessed by whom? Naked I was born, naked I’ll die All the rest is illusion You, You’re always there You never let me down even if I, I’m not there 2. What are my dreams when I wake up? All my thoughts will fade away My friends have to go, I’m left alone I have to live that everyday You, You’re always there You never let me down even if I, I’m not there 3. What is my life, what did I do if I built my house on the sand? In a hundred years what will remain when everything will have to end ? You, You’re always there You never let me down even if I, I’m not there (c) Yvalain

A love song dedicated to these young men who were in the trenches of the 14-18 war, fighting for their country and dreaming of their wives or girlfriends who stayed home. The pictures are a bit kitsch and naive but they were the true support of their imagination in these dark times. All pictures are from Google. Jacques Delorenzi: vocals Yvalain: guitar and electronic production Lyrics (c) Yvalain 1. You hold me by the hand, I come back to you You say that I’m your man, and it seems the whole world is new There’s a wave in your hair And I wonder what’s this perfume in the air? Oh love 2. When the day turns to night you are full of fears Thus I’m holding you tight; gently, I’m wiping all your tears There’s a smile on your face And I wonder how can you have so much grace? My love When we’re two I can’t help saying “I love you” You’re my light and I need you in my night (I) Can’t live without you 3. When the world is so mad that (it) breaks everything When evil is inside, is love only that painful dream? There’s a cloud in our sky And I wonder what can we do to survive? Oh love When we’re two … ... Thank you for your support...

Yvalain's POOR LITTLE BOY a song about the common violence made to the boys in our so-called civilized societies, as we want them to become "real men". Violence breeds violence. That violence includes newborns genital cutting (fortunately only in Israel and parts of the USA), blows, insults, social and family pressure, mockery daily devaluation. When boys are brought up to respect their integrity and sensitivity, the world will be better. with Jacques Delorenzi on vocals PeerGynt LoboGris on lead guitar Yvalain on bass, guitars and arrangements the video is made with extracts of a 1921 movie titled "My Boy" showing the young Jackie Coogan looking desperately for a welcome and a commercial for the "Save the Children" agency. Lyrics (c) Yvalain 1. A long ago, when he was young he wandered Fully free of anger The sky above, his feet well on the ground 2. It was the time of innocence, and playing Just the faith to believe In human kind, the blue world will go on Poor little boy will grow up,  will lose his dreams 3. They cover him with rags, they laugh at him now Can't they feel the sorrow? No dignity. The joy to throw him down Poor little boy…

"Beyond The Night" by Yvalain a song of despair and hope with Jacques Delorenzi, vocals and bass Yvalain, guitars and arrangements All pictures by James Miller on vimeo.com Obviously I don't own these pictures which are borrowed here for a musical non commercial project The song was recorded in 2009 on a small portable PC. The general sound and the mix had suffered of this poor configuration. However this recording allows to enjoy Jacques's skills in singing and playing a very nice bass line. I was rather happy with my lead guitar parts, too. Lyrics: Once again I’m feeling down I bury myself in the blue Down in the dumps: my daily round I remember when I met you I thought you came with something new I believed in love that would set me free But something’s broken inside me Beyond the night is there a new light I need to know Or should we state that we just get by With no regret, no goodbye Here again I’m on my own I can’t put up with anymore We, together, I feel alone What the hell are we good for If we can’t adjust our tone What can you do for your love in need Before your lover goes to seed Beyond the night... People and TV pretend we’re happy Silly empty words that drive me crazy Oh why can’t they see The fall of broken hearts and failing loves and lives I know I should let it go Beyond the night...

"Enjoy Your Time" by Yvalain, with Jacques Delorenzi on vocals I wrote this song in the early 90s and recorded it in 2009. Several weeks were necessary to find the adequate arrangements. The original lyrics were about the streets children killed by death squads but I smoothened them to better focus on the contrast between sunny seasides, full of happy tourists, and dark back streets full of poverty. In the end it sounds like a fable about our modern life when we try to focus on the bright side of things, whilst avoiding the dirt and desperate fate of most of our brothers on this Earth. Musically that song was made with strange chords such as 9th or diminished with a kind of latino mood. I programmed a basic track, thanks to Band-In-A-Box, with drums, organ and a nice resonator part. I added doubles acoustic guitars, a bass and soon filled the gap between the sung parts with some angry electric guitar. Jacques provided his great talent to sing the song with all his heart. He created vocals harmonies too. Hope you’ll enjoy your time listening and watching this video. Thank you for your kind support

I made a simple video and used an alternate mix with more presence of the orchestral sound, however the version posted by Darcy should be considered as the definitive version. My warm thanks to Darcy who sung that song with all her heart.

"Partir" a bluesy original by Yvalain A french song I made a long time ago. Recorded live today with some additional production. If you don't understand the French language please don't bother to tell it to me as this is exactly what I experience when I listen to English songs! (and I survived so far) :) Besides I provide here below a translation of these surrealistic lyrics. Thank you very much for your great support PARTIR 1. Mon voyage a glissé sur un tube de dentifrice Dans le hall de la gare Le train a démarré à toute vapeur Il a percuté a valise Aujourd'hui je ne pourrai pas partir Aujourd'hui je ne pourrai pas partir 2. La piste d'atterrissage s'est embrouillée Autour d'un fuseau horaire Mon billet déchiré a mouillé mes baskets Je suis rentré pieds nus Aujourd'hui je ne pourrai pas partir Aujourd'hui je ne pourrai pas partir 3. J'ai fouillé mes poches fatiguées Et j'ai retrouvé ma détresse Delacroix soupire, je savais qu'il me faisait La gueule, il m'en veut Jamais je ne pourrai partir Jamais je ne pourrai partir 4. Alors j'ai enfumé les idées grises Et elles sont mortes étouffées Un nuage a crevé mon plafond de sucre glace Je pars.... LEAVING 1. My trip slipped on a tube of toothpaste In the lobby of the train station The train started at full steam It hit my suitcase Today I won't leave Today I won't leave 2. The airstrip is blurred Around a timezone My torn ticket wet my sneakers I came back barefoot Today I won't leave Today I won't leave 3. I searched my tired pockets And I found my distress Delacroix sighs, I knew he was Against me, he hates me I would never leave I would never leave 4. So I smoked these gray ideas And they died, suffocated A cloud bursted my icing sugared ceiling And I'm leaving .... (c) Yvalain

Pat Collard & Yvalain - Mr Jones Mr Jones, an original by Pat Collard & Yvalain Our latest collaboration was published months ago but we've started to work on that "Mr Jones" in September 2013, taking the necessary time until now to end the composition and finish the recordings. Patrick brought a very nice jazzy guitar part and swinging vocals with original harmonies. Yvalain prepared the song structure with piano and drums, then he recorded his bass line and added a sax solo, created with Band-In-A-Box. The video is made with various footage from Vimeo and Google and we don't pretend to be the authors of these images. Some extracts of Pat and Yvalain playing their instruments were inserted too.

I'LL DO by Yvalain, Glenn & Remco This is the last song of my revisited series. That song was recorded in 2013, thanks to the magic of Internet: I'm in France, Glenn in the US and Remco in the Netherlands. With hindsight the initial sound appeared a bit confused and noisy. So I decided to rework it completely and put a new bass (using now my fantastic new Bass driver). For this brand new video I used various footages showing Remco and Glenn playing, and for the first time, myself live in concert with one of my latest bands. Some extra pictures were taken from "Corruption" by Cheloveche: https://vimeo.com/37950702 Extract from our upcoming album.

THAT PAIN IN MY EYES by Yvalain, Glenn & Remco This is a remix of a song made in 2013, the first song that the Fab Three recorded together, thanks to the Internet. As I was preparing the album compiling our works together, I decided to improve the mix and revisit the choices made at that time. The acoustic guitars and bass are new. I applied some changes in the audio effects and the mix was totally refreshed in order to improve the sound intimacy and clarity. I think this is the best I could do on that song which is precious to me, not only for being one of my introspective songs, unreleased for years, but for being the start of the great musical adventure we've started Glenn, Remco and I. The video is all new. A fantastic work made by Lyapis Trubetskoy, named "Lights" that can be seen here: https://vimeo.com/2204669 I used iMovie v10 for the first time. A bit confusing but more souple than version 9. This is another extract of our upcoming album.

Yvalain, Glenn & Remco - Thinking Of The Past (remake) excerpt from our upcoming album The original version was created in March 2013 but I was not very satisfied with the mix. So I've reworked it completely in December 2013, simplified it in order to better enjoy the different parts provided by Glenn & Remco. I also recorded a new bass line, as the original sound was very very bad to my ears. Now I'm really happy with the result which sounds exactly how it should have been at the beginning. I used the existing video but made some changes, so that there is something new to watch. Thank you all for your support. Yvalain, Glenn & Remco

The Quest by Yvalain & Jorge Estrada An original instrumental extracted from the new "Babel Sin Fronteras" album: WINGS, free download and listen here: http://www.jamendo.com/en/list/a129808/wings-alas This song was made in 2 steps. First I provided a temporary instrumental mix to my Mexican friend Jorge Estrada in 2009 so that he could add some instruments. In the meantime I published a vocal version of the song. Later on Jorge sent me a new mix with several new instruments. Unfortunately at that time I was in deep depression and I could not give any follow-up to the work made by my friend. Then I forgot it... Lately, end of 2013, Jorge recalled me that unfinished project. I discovered that my indifference had hurt him and I felt very sorry for that. But we jointly decided to end the project in time for the new Babel In Fronteras album. Jorge sent me his midi tracks and I prepared a new mix. Now the "Wings" album is published here: www.jamendo.com/en/list/a129808/wings-alas and it contains that track. I'm very happy with the result. Jorge brought new ideas which provided more fantasy to my basic composition. In return his approach helped me to think of different options and dare more experimentation. This story shows that our friendship was reinforced when we could discuss about that aborted project. Music is a real healer! Video made with "Wild child' https://vimeo.com/79866135 and Baby Boy https://vimeo.com/35835067. Many thanks to the authors This video can be watched in HD on YouTube.

GOOD PEOPLE (a Christmas song), an original by Yvalain Audio and video production by Yvalain This is a Christmas song for grown-up and good people Original lyrics by Yvalain, with the great support of my soul sister Carol Forsloff 1. There are good people in every land There are good people everywhere Whether they believe in God or not What only matters is what they do 2. Although there are beautiful words In books whether holy or not Oh, They can't be as important as works embodied in the world R. And I wish you a Merry Christmas No matter what it means to you Whether you celebrate Jesus Or just glorify innocence 3. Why do they still need to gather To get that feeling to exist Why can't they have their own ethics Act for the good for its own sake 4. As soon as they gather in a mob, in a tribe or in church They acquire a false strength And they stand against each other R. And I wish you a Merry Christmas No matter what it means to you Whether you celebrate Jesus Or just glorify innocence R. Yes I wish you a Merry Christmas No matter what it means to you And let's be working hard for peace A peace that our world really needs French Translation 1. Il y a des gens bien dans tous les pays Il y a des gens bien partout dans le monde Qu'ils croient en Dieu ou qu'ils n'y croient pas Ce qui importe vraiment ce qu'ils font 2. C'est sûr, il existe de belles paroles Dans les livres, qu'ils soient saints ou non Mais ils ne peuvent pas être aussi important Que les actions réalisées dans la réalité R. Et je vous souhaite un Joyeux Noël Et peu importe ce que cela signifie pour vous Que vous célébriez Jésus Ou que vous rendiez simplement grâce à l'innocence 3. Pourquoi ils ont encore besoin de se rassembler Pour se sentir exister Pourquoi ne peuvent-ils pas avoir leur propre éthique Et agir pour le bien tout simplement 4. Dès qu'ils se rassemblent dans une foule, Dans une tribu ou à l'église Ils croient avoir une force mais c'est une illusion Et ils se lèvent bientôt les uns contre les autres R. Et je vous souhaite un Joyeux Noël Et peu importe ce que cela signifie pour vous Que vous célébriez Jésus Ou que vous rendiez simplement grâce à l'innocence R. Oui, je vous souhaite un Joyeux Noël Et peu importe ce que cela signifie pour vous Car nous devrons œuvrer ensemble pour la paix Une paix dont notre monde a vraiment besoin

Hallelujah by Yvalain A song composed by Leonard Cohen Music production, arrangements and vocals by Yvalain I enjoyed the early songs of Leonard Cohen (Marianne, Bird on a wire, The Partisan...) and then I lost views on his production. When I discovered Jeff Buckley with its delicate voice I enjoyed his song Hallelujah, until I found out that it was a Leonard Cohen composition. My version is between Leonard's deep voice and Jeff's flutter voice. I could not compete with these 2 music monuments. I just tried to express my admiration and love for this song

Yvalain's Wish You Were Here This is my version of this famous Pink Floyd song, published in 1975 on the eponym album. I played guitars, programmed various instruments, added some loops found on the web and made the vocals (2 voice tracks) This is a tribute to my young years with friends when we were trying to do that one

Yvalain - Greensleeves Yvalain: electronic prod, guitar and vocals
 Wiki: There is a persistent belief that Greensleeves was composed by Henry VIII for his lover and future queen consort Anne Boleyn. Boleyn allegedly rejected King Henry's attempts to seduce her and this rejection may be referred to in the song when the writer's love "cast me off discourteously". However, the piece is based on an Italian style of composition that did not reach England until after Henry's death, making it more likely to be Elizabethan in origin Lyrics in that version: Alas, my love, you do me wrong,
 To cast me off discourteously 
For I have loved you well and long,
 Delighting in your company Greensleeves was all my joy 
Greensleeves was my delight,
 Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
 And was but my lady greensleeves I have been ready at your hand,
 To grant whatever you would crave, 
I have both wagered life and land,
 Your love and good will for to have Greensleeves was all my joy Greensleeves was my delight,
 Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
 And was but my lady greensleeves Well, I will pray to God on high 
that thou my constancy mayst see Greensleeves was all my joy
 Greensleeves was my delight,
 Greensleeves was my heart of gold,
 And was but my lady greensleeves

So Fragile by Yvalain When we pay attention we can only see fragilities all around us. Fragility of nature, animals and human beings. It's heartbreaking to realize that most of the problems in the world comes from pretending having strength we don't have. It's even more heartbreaking to see that men's violence is a desperate effort to deny being that weak, and of course it's terribly efficient. Music written & produced by Yvalain, with the help of Logic Pro. No loops or samples used. I don't own any picture used in that video. The song is followed by a short extract of a tape recorded in my teen years. That melody took 40 years to reach today. But I knew at that time that it expressed something true and that it was important to preserve it from the damages of time. Thank you again for your kind support.

Isn't It A Pity, a George Harrison song played by Yvalain That song was published in 1970 on George's first solo album after the Beatles split. The triple album was titled "All Things Must Pass". It was a huge musical event as most of the song were incredibly good. Furthermore George was not known as being able to make so many songs with the Beatles. I had the sudden desire to make this little tribute to George this morning. A least I could check that my acoustic guitar was still working... I added a few harmonies and a 2nd guitar once the video was recorded live.

THE PRODIGAL SON, an original by Yvalain With Glenn Basham, vocals Yvalain, instruments When I read that story with attention a few years ago I was hit by the depth and the beauty of that unconditional love and I created that song. I'm certain that if we were able to show the same love to each others in our ordinary life the world would be much better. Instead we love the ones that we think deserve it and hate of feel indifference for the others. So bad... I used some pictures found on the web showing that this story has amazed many generations and was painted with a lot of love by great artists.

A LIFE DRIVE, an original by Yvalain This is the original acoustic demo recorded in the 90's on a 4 track analog cassette recorder. Contains a metronome, overdubs of acoustic guitars plus some appearance of an electric guitar. When I saved that recording on computer I slightly improved the sound and the stereo picture. Those who heard the orchestral version, published earlier, will state how the music is close to the original version but in a definitely different shape. Art by Natalya (altered by Yvalain)

A LIFE DRIVE an original by Yvalain For more than 15 years I've been working on a dozen of short classical pieces. I spent incalculable number of hours to write the notes of each instrument which plays in that orchestra. It all started with my acoustic guitars on a 4 track analog recorder. Once the music was written on musical notation I desperately needed a good software to make that music sounds as realistic as possible. I have it now... So I plan to publish my short classical pieces little by little, hoping you'll find some interest in these compositions. Some purists might say that the only real music was the one I played originally on my acoustic guitar. But in fact the real music was the one which was born in my mind and it really sounded much more like this one that we can hear now than my nice but rustic acoustic version (that I'll publish too one of these days). No samples and no loops were used in there. Thank you for your incredible support.

A weak man who thought he's strong when he was beating his son Felt so low in the world but he could vent his rage at home Never satisfied, his joy was to crush me Meanwhile his wife spent her time with her lovers I really was the one that nobody cared for, of my my... July 6th, in seventy-nine, I was only twenty-three But my heart inside and my soul sighed: "I can't go on" "No hope, no future" was written on the walls A field of ruins was my only luggage Yet I stuck it out, soon I met my wife and my life really began

CHILD LIKE A HERO, an original by Yvalain unreleased version with Jacques Delorenzi (FR) on vocals and the complete instrumental part introducing Jaime Heras (SP) on synthesizer solo. Yvalain (FR) composed and arranged and played bass and guitars. This is the third post related to the problem of breaking wings of little children so that they have to carry an unbearable weight all their life instead to recall an happy childhood, which should be the intimate treasure of all of us. Some children who are desperate to be loved become little heroes who deploy outsized resources to get some recognition. They become like those suffering servants mentioned by the psalms, they break all records in a general indifference. As adults, these survivors have treasures of energy that they provide to others to make the world better. This song is dedicated to them. If you have the patience to listen the whole song: the instrumental part tries to describe the state of mind and emotions of these survivors. It ends with a positive note as they still dream like innocent little children.

Yvalain sings "Sunny Afternoon" by the Kinks, composed by Ray Davies, one of my favorites songs ever... Technical info: I recorded the vocal on the right channel and the guitar on the left while doing the video. I then extracted the audio with Quick Time, split the 2 channels to get 2 files (I made that with Audacity) then on Logic Pro I've added a second vocal line, and the characteristic bass/guitar line, that I played here with the acoustic (the bass E note being moved down to D, obviously). I then reimported the final audio mix into the video with iMovie.

Yvalain sings "We'll Meet Again" a song written in 1939 by Ross Parker/Hugh Charles, sung by many singers since then. I discovered it sung by Johnny Cash. I like the nostalgic and yet hopeful mood of that song. Technical info: I made a live recording of the main vocal and the guitar. I extracted the audio from the video (a simple function with QuickTime).Then, under Logic Pro I reinforced the guitar beats and doubled the vocal in some parts, yet trying to keep the simplicity of this project. I finally reimported the audio mix in the video with iMovie.

Free Falling Smile, an original by Yvalain Musical collaboration with Glenn Basham and Remco Heemskerk All credits in the video. (c) July 2013 That song is about the alienation we all should feel when manipulated and brainwashed by the mass media and the need (that we should satisfy) to make something of our lives. Verse 1: Had enough of sitting here Watching all the morons on TV Yes, I'm sick of this empty talk Making me waste my time Don't want to be a bystander Yes, I want to escape, yeah, I want to be free Chorus Free falling smile See how my feet get out of control Free falling smile That routine turns into rock n' roll Verse 2: Have to go, have to change the world I have to calm down the rage inside I must act, I must seek flawless For everything I was taught, it was wrong Don't want to be an onlooker Yes, I want to escape, yeah, I want to be free Repeat Chorus

Another Gentle Knock by Yvalain A melody that I created in my late 20's and recorded now with a minimalist orchestration : acoustic guitar, electric guitar and some synth strings to complete the mood. I'm always impressed by Mark Taylor's acoustic work and I wanted to make a little tribute to him with that piece of music. I like his gentle play on acoustic guitar, with nice melodies. I'm not as accurate as him in my playing but I tried to keep in mind that simplicity can magnify some melodies.

Little lamb don’t be afraid I will never hurt you Cos’ I became vegan Yes I became vegan 2. Little veal I love you too You can stay with you mother I don’t need to eat your flesh This is not good for both of us Cos’ I became vegan… Bridge: Cereals are delicious I like rice and quinoa too Carrot cakes, organic bread And vegetables are so tasty Sweet cow please give me some milk Because I love all kinds of cheese I like animals in the wild I don’t like to see them in pain 3. Some people eat cats and dogs Some prefer the snakes But I became vegan… 4. Little pork, little chicken I’ll never send you to the slaughterhouse Cos’ I’ve became vegan…

BACK AGAIN, an original by Yvalain with Jacques Delorenzi: vocals, creator of all harmonies Yvalain: bass, guitars, special effects Recorded in 2012 and 2013. Vocals in Jan 2013. New mix June 2013. Many thanks to my accomplice: Jacques for his wonderful vocals. That song was already posted 4 months ago but Jacques was not too happy with the mix as his vocals were slightly late on the rhythm. So this is repaired now as long as more changes in the mix. I hope you'll appreciate that more efficient version as much as the earlier one. Furthermore, now there is a video (and I'm quite happy with it)! This is a protest song about the madness of a world where everyone is brought to stand against his brother. Back Again, I wont look back Behind my shoulders big black clouds Back Again, I wont back down Ill find a way out deep blue skies Back Again, Where have you been For me no stone to rest my head All your little lies, you know Im fed up with no truth Listen As stranger as he can be A disarmed man walks alone A loser without any key Watch him back home Theres no welcome Back Again, What should I know I cant remember the happy days Back Again, A single blow Anythings good to feel OK Back Again, What do you mean By saying: Ive never met him What a little lie, you know Im fed up with no truth Listen Nobody's playing in the street What kind of world has risen while he was away A failing ground under the feet Where are the thoughts, where are the words he used to say?

Our trio works really good with great respect and fun. Thank you Glenn & Remco for your talent and your friendship. I composed that song in the early 90's but I never made any satisfying version up to now. It's a kind of McCartneyish happy mood and I really hope you'll enjoy it. Lyrics (with corrections by Glenn) Always complaining that I strike an attitude Don’t you like me that much? So you have won, I’m out of touch Just have to take my second wind Always wanting me to revise my latitude Haven’t you had enough? Well I just have to add, with a laugh Best regards from a guy who has preened And I say I’ll do stop to act as a fool Never again you’ll find me upside down Howling like a wolf in the night I used to consider my life as a prelude To something unpleasant If I was wrong, I’m innocent Another thought to save in a bin And I say I’ll do stop to act as a fool Never again you’ll find me upside down Howling like a wolf in the night Just stop the elevator Have to silent the mentor Control the regulator Call the doctor I have hidden the best part of me To be certain that you won’t destroy it And I say I’ll do stop to act as a fool Never again you’ll find me upside down Howling like a wolf in the night And I say I’ll do stop to act as a fool Never again you’ll find me upside down Howling like a wolf in the night (c) Yvalain

Yvalain & Patrick Collard - The Lonely Boy The Lonely Boy, an original song written & composed by Yvalain and Patrick Collard. The project started early April 2013 and just finished today May 17th, 2013. Creating a song with Pat is a great and joyful experience. I thank him very much for his energy, understanding and great talent. Lyrics The Lonely Boy Who will care for the lonely boy? Who will care for the lonely boy? Crying his helpless tears, Alone with his silent fears. It seems there is no Sun to light his empty sky, It seems there is no Sun to light his empty sky, He wanders alone at night, Homeless in the Moonlight. And yet he`s alive, And yet his soul survives To say I love life, I love life. It seems the road to happiness is closed to him, It seems the road to happiness is closed to him, He`s falling as space surrounds him, The world fades around him. And curled up like a wounded animal, And curled up like a wounded animal, He dreams the dreams that set him free, To a world where he is happy. (c) Patrick Collard & Yvalain Debodinance

ALL I WANT IS YOU, an original song with Darcy Jeavons & Yvalain Notice: If you want to skip the intro and go directly to the song please jump to 1'34. Thank you all for your great support. Great thanks to Darcy who provided some magic to that song. Introduction note: Film extracts from the Passion according Matthew by Pier Paolo Pasolini. This video is for non-commercial purpose, a tribute to the art of Pasolini, RIP, and the subject of his film: Jesus, a man who preached love and non-violence. By contrast such message and attitude reveal the violence of the mankind. It led him to persecution and death, like all non-violent persons such as Gandhi and Martin Luther King (to name a few of them). Lyrics (Darcy & Yvalain): Here I stand, reaching for You Oh my Lord, I’m begging You, save my life I pray I surrender all to You, Lord show me the way All I want is You (Jesus), You, You, You All I want is You (Jesus), You, You, You On my knees, I am calling for You Savior please, help get me through the darkness that I see I’m alone, I need You now, oh my Lord rescue me All I want is You (Jesus), You, You, You All I want is You (Jesus), You, You, You You’re the glory of my life, a Light exploding in the night Oh the love You bring, Lord You are my everything Make Your home in my heart We cannot be torn apart With each tear You let me know You will never let me go All I want is You All I want is You All I want is You, ……Jesus…… Jesus

Nature an original song by Yvalain. This is my first time "live" video. Better play loud to enjoy that song. The basic track was recorded in 2003 with supplementary production in 2013. Yvalain plays guitars, sings and programmed some digital devices. I provide here the lyrics in French and a translation in English. The theme is that Nature is beautiful but also cruel. So mankind long for love better than for nature.

Give Me Hope, an original blues by Yvalain with Gaby Cardoso: electric piano and Yvalain: vocal, bass, guitars and some more digital arrangements It's a demo made in 2011, remixed in 2013. My friend Cyril suggested me to remix that song which was issued on my Soul Colors album, in a more intimate way (as it was very shiny there). That gave me the curiosity to try it. I've unburied my vocal demo which was in English. Although I'm conscious that it's not a great vocal I was happy to recover the original intention of the song. I've removed many layers of instruments to reach the raw bass/piano/guitar track. I hope you'll like it despite its unfinished production

"A Trip To Germany" an original song by Yvalain Yvalain plays all guitars and sings his "Beer Song" Another 4 tracks analog recording The film is a subjective sight on Germany including places where I've been and some personal footage like my wife Nadine in a BeerFest in Bavaria (the lady with a green shirt near the end of the video), myself drinking hot wine in the cold weather, and some pictures from my family album (all in Germany of course). Germany is a beautiful and fascinating country. The people there are really charming and I can count several Germans among my best friends. The whole video is made to give you a nice entertainment. And I hope you'll enjoy the music. Acoustic and electric guitars then joined by a bass and a singing part. The final song was a tribute to my German friends Jens und his wife Regina and Ulrich, Wiebke und Bianca their daughter. Yvalain's Beer Song Would you please come in here Hey you, little pretty maid There's something wrong on this table I don't want that bottle of wine Bring me a pint of beer "Look how thirsty we are Beer is just what we need" As long as God grants me life on this Earth I will rejoice with beer Hey Mister So and so As you go to and fro Can you survive? Staying alive In that wretched little life of yours Won't you shake this heavy yoke? Won't you follow me this way? Won't you ever have a good time? Let's take a break Would you please come in here... (c) Yvalain

"What Can We Do" original demo by Yvalain Yvalain sings and play acoustic and electric guitars on a generated bass/drums track This is a demo I made for my last band. Although not intended to be listened I though it could be shared with you as I think it brings some positive energy. each track was recorded live, no effects no overdubs. Lyrics: Inquisitive glance in your eye But you’ve got a finger in the pie We just have to say with a sigh What can we do What can be done to have you feel alright? What can we do What do you need to meet your inner light? A magic wand? A friendly hand? Oh please come back to us and join the band One after one you criticize Don’t find a shoe right to your size Day after day you agonize What can we do ... Will you ever keep going this way? Will you be willing to move anyway ? You can’t always tuck it away What can we do ...

"Magical Music Box" an original instrumental by Yvalain Another piece of my "analog 4 tracks recordings". All guitars by Yvalain The middle part is a from real music box that I listened when I was a kid in my grand-parents's home. Full of remembrance to me: sounds, perfume, the music of their voices. When I created that music I had the idea in insert it in the middle, a little tribute to those who loved me and especially to my grand father who was the first to tell me that I had a great value. FRENCH: "La boîte à musique magique" un instrumental composé et joué par Yvalain Un autre exemple de mes enregistrements analogiques "pistes 4". Toutes les guitares jouées par Yvalain La partie centrale est une vraie musique que j'ai écouté quand j'étais gamin chez mes grands-parents tout. Plein de souvenirs pour moi : les sons, les parfums, la musique de leurs voix. Quand j'ai créé cette musique, j'ai eu l'idée d'insérer au milieu cette petite musique entendue dans mon enfance, un petit hommage à ceux qui m'aimaient et surtout à mon grand-père qui fut le premier à me dire que j'avais de la valeur.

"Fathers, Love Your Sons!" by Yvalain Yes, please, do not think you have to push you son too hard, don't believe that hurting him will make him stronger, don't think that he must become insensitive to be a man. He's already a man, that's pure biology. The world will be hard enough to him, don't spoil his childhood, as an happy childhood is a treasure that each one brings with him all his lifelong, whilst a sad childhood is a hell that he has to carry on his shoulders. Another instrumental in my series of "analog 4tracks recordings". Only guitars here. All played by myself. Recorded several years ago in my living room, my children kidding all around

"Being Afraid" an instrumental by Yvalain Another music from my "analog 4tracks recordings". I was about to go the hospital for a surgery and I feared that a lot. I made that music with a sense of urgency, as if it was my last song before I die (LOL, I'm still there 20 years later). There was a tension between expressing that fear and the need to comfort myself. That shows in the music, I think. Do not miss the very last part which is the more dramatic moment. Only guitars with a metronome (I decided that I had to play more accurately). Dedicated to those who are in the same situations (but not facing the same fears I hope) my dear friends Robin & Carol The picture says that when we fear we become a little child again...

"Yes I'm A Musician" by Yvalain Not really a song title. Not intended to demonstrate my skills. This was one of my first attempt to do a multi-track recording on an analog 4 track recorder. Only guitars. Not perfect but the intention was pure. That music was meaningful to me. I'm sorry, there was no cam while I was recording that!... Dedicated to all those composers and multi-track musicians who have been hurt by some recent statements but yet are grateful to Pud for having created Fandalism. Dedicated particularly to Michel Gypen & Roger Aldridge Picture: Yvalain circa 2007 live in concert (sorry no cam again!) :)
