L’incroyable Vérité + Sebastien Tellier’s Sexuality

sebastien tellier

I first heard Sebastien Tellier when I discovered the track “La Ritournelle,” which debuted in 2005.  The title translates into “the only love song” and the song, featuring only eight little lines, hooked me from the start.  It’s one of the most beautiful dance tracks:

Oh nothing’s going to change my love for you
I wanna spend my life with you
So we make love on the grass under the moon
No one call tell, damned if I do
Forever journey on golden avenues
I drift in your eyes since I love you
I got that beat in my veins for only rule
Love is to share, mine is for you

(Mr. Dan’s remix is my favorite version of the track…)

Tellier’s third album, Sexuality, released in 2008, was produced by Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo (Daft Punk), and it’s, well, pretty sexy in a fantastic way only the french can pull off.  Mr. Tellier sings in French, English and Italian (what a sex pot).  Favorites on the album include:

Roche (listen to the Breakbot remix)
Sebastien Tellier – Roche (Breakbot Remix)

Kilometer (check out A-Trak’s remix)
Sebastien Tellier – Kilometer (A-Trak Remix)

Divine (auditory pleasure = Danger remix)
Sebastien Tellier – Divine (Danger Remix)
