Indochine - La Guerre Est Finie (my favourite Indochine song!)
This is where you find out I’m actually crazy.
At the age of 13 I bought myself a tape cassette of Indochine’s “Un Jour Dans Notre Vie”… I was OBSESSED with it and would listen to it over and over again for hours… flipping the tape and never skipping a song. I had long known about this band and had always liked their music but this album KILLED it. Even now, listening to it on my ipod, I feel the same way about it. It’s an excellent record.
I have always been a big time day dreamer and music has never failed to be the main trigger of my craziest and most loving delusions. With discovering this album I also discovered the band’s singer (obviously), Nicola Sirkis, and fell madly in fan love with him.
(this is where it gets weird for you)
I wrote a 3 part fan fiction story using him as the main protagonist where I would travel back in time to when he was a teenager himself (I, 13, him 16) and we’d hopefully fall for each other. I say hopelessly because at some point I knew I had to return to the future and that we’d both have to be heartbroken and that he might also get real freaked out about the fact that I was from the future… So we’d break things off and I would come back to “the future” and he’d live his life and he would then go on to write all of Indochine’s love songs with me in mind. I believe that, at some point, in my “time”, after he had become and adult and famous french rockstar, we’d meet again and weren’t able to deny that we were soul mates but couldn’t renew our love because he was in his 30s and I, 13.
WHAT A CRUSHING TALE OF PSYCHO.
Nicola Sirkis, my first celebrity crush.
PS: this song is NOT from Un Jour Dans Notre Vie, it’s a previously unreleased tracked that was featured on their greatest hits album Birthday Album only.
