Sinclair; Ca M'Fait Plus Mal

 

Continuing-unintentionally- with the French theme, here's French funk (it's a thing) dude Sinclair with a song and a video about getting over pain. The pain that he's talking about is of course, the pain that 99% of pop songs talk about- in other words, heartache. But the video shows more literal pain, documenting scars on the singer's body; everything from dog bites to vaccination marks. I remembered this video from my days of living in Belgium at the turn of the century (how lovely to use that phrase). At the time, what struck me most was one man's ability to preen in front of a camera so un-selfconciously. But it also reminded me that ultimately we're all a map of our scars, really.
