Oldelaf - J'aime les bêtes

Difficulty: difficulty - Beginner Beginner

France

Oldelaf (Olivier Delafosse) makes a comeback after ten years with a new whimsical song. He much prefers animals to a certain lady. No, it's not his ex-girlfriend. We'll give you a hint: She succeeded her father as president of the Front National party. (Oldelaf must be glad that's all she's president of!)

Oldelaf - La Tristitude

Difficulty: difficulty - Beginner Beginner

France

Oldelaf bares his soul in his song "La tristitude," a portmanteau that combines tristesse (sadness) and attitude (and a little solitude). We might call it "saditude." Listen to his lyrics and you'll surely recognize it. Ça fait mal!

Oldelaf - Courseulles-sur-Mer

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

The French singer Oldelaf took his girlfriend to the Normandy beach town of Courseulles-sur-Mer, but their time there wasn't quite as romantic as it could have been. Find out what happened in this charming music video!

Oldelaf - Le monde est beau

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

In his song "Le monde est beau" (The World is Beautiful), Oldelaf's ironic take on social networking is bittersweet and not without humor.

Oldelaf - Le Crépi

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

Oldelaf turned his abhorrence for rough stucco walls that scrape your skin into a funky song, "Le crépi" (Stucco).

Oldelaf - interprète "Bérénice"

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

Oldelaf's "Bérénice" is a beautiful love song with a somewhat tragic (but very comical!) ending. You'll both laugh at and be moved by Oldelaf's poetic language and soulful crooning.

Oldelaf - interprète "Vendredi"

Difficulty: difficulty - Adv-Intermediate Adv-Intermediate

France

Enjoy Oldelaf's quirky humor, as displayed in his introduction to his two backup musicians who come from wildly different backgrounds, to say the least. Then listen to his satirical song "Vendredi" (Friday), where he describes a typical weekend for the average bored (and boring?) French guy.

Oldelaf - La peine de mort

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

Few people can escape Oldelaf's imaginary death sentences: from children who wake up too early, to people who wear socks with sandals, to people who copy the music from the film Drive (such as Oldelaf himself), to people who actually support the death penalty. It's a good thing this video is just satirical!

Oldelaf - Je mange

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

Oldelaf, aka Olivier Delafosse, sings "Je mange" (I Eat). This darkly humorous video paints a portrait of a modern man's dysfunctional relationship with food. If it sounds a little too familiar to you, that could mean it's time for a game of table tennis (with a partner)!

Oldelaf - La Belle histoire

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

In "La Belle Histoire," Oldelaf tells the "beautiful story" of a couple falling in love. We won't spoil the ending, but be prepared for a surprising, humorous twist. It wouldn't be an Oldelaf video without one!

Oldelaf - Les mains froides

Difficulty: difficulty - Intermediate Intermediate

France

Oldelaf sings "Les Mains Froides" (Cold Hands). It's a sweet, romantic song taking place in Paris, the capital of romance. He is very shy, but she takes charge and makes him feel at ease. She doesn't even mind his cold hands....
