My Current Mindworm : {A Semi-Regular Series} Prémonition (Coeur De Pirate)


I can not get this song out of my head. Honestly. I have tried. I keep hearing it on CBC radio and I can’t not listen when it comes on. It’s so good! It pleases my ears. Seriously. My ears have the capability of being pleased and happy. Think, ice cream truck jingly chimes, birds in spring, the sound of an approved purchase on the POS machine at the Apple Store or baby giggles.

Yeah. Like that.

We are talking Hamilton level mindworm here, people! This is getting serious.

So, what’s a Peady to do?

Why, share it with you, of course. This is a three pronged attack to mindworm solution finding.

First of all, I get to hear the song again (YAY!) for completely legitimate, non-losing-my-mind-as-I-type reasons when I go to find it so I can get the details correct in the title of my post and for information sharing purposes.

Secondly, I get to (finally) stop wondering if there is a video (there is!) and share it with you after first watching it myself. Again, this is quality control not obsession, thank you very much.

Here it is!

Thirdly, I get to wonder what the heck that was all about as I puzzle over this music video and if you watch it we can discuss this and puzzle over it together. Oh, I do love a good wondering session.

So, shall we?

What the heck was that all about?

Doesn’t she have a cool voice?

Do you love this song? Do you even know it at all?

If you had a choice would you rather hear the music and skip the video? (Close your eyes and listen. Seriously. Completely different experience.)

Or do you enjoy the visual component, too?

I find myself more confused than anything, to be honest.

It’s obviously a love story gone awry, but why? I need more information!

So, tell me, what songs or artists have you been listening to a lot lately? Are you able to simply move on or does your brain compel you to listen one more time? Can you predict when a certain song will hook you from the first few bars or notes?

When is the last time you really (like, truly, madly, deeply) loved a song?

I can’t wait to hear your thoughts.

In the meantime, I think I’ll watch this Coeur De Pirate video again and try to figure out whether they were going for sexy or scary because – I have to be honest with you here – I am seriously conflicted.

    • I love it! I hear it in my head right now. Ha ha! They play it a lot on CBC (Morning & Shift & Drive) so I hear it several times a day. It stands out! 😀

      Go listen again!!

  1. it’s such a fun, light-hearted song. it reminds me of when I used to listen to Shakira’s Spanish songs. the singer could be talking about the end of the world but it sounds so pretty 🙂

    • That is so very true! You are absolutely right. I have a friend who is Venezuelan and she used to listen to a lot of Shakira. Shakira is so very different in Spanish! It was fun to learn more. Mind you, I will never deny the awesomeness of Shakira – in any language -during a Zumba class (which I really, really need to get back into my routine!).

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting. I appreciate it!

  2. It’s definitely a light, Franco-pop groove with a nice flow. I actually enjoyed reading your post than I did the song. You have a lovely, engaging manner.

    I agree with you on the narrative of the vid, although I think I took it more as a comment on the contrast in relationships in a more general sense. Heat and passion as diametric extremes that run throughout a relationship’s length, but which are fundamentally informed by the same physiological response in terms of feeling.

    Or the director might be a choreographer. 😉

    Thanks for getting me thinking, Peady!
