Sebastien Tellier

"L'amour et la violence" is the final track off the album Sexuality by french composer Sébastien Tellier.

The album was produced by Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, and there are definitely traces of Punk all over this album. But Tellier, a multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter, is extraordinarily talented, and "L'amour et la violence" is a beautiful meditation on love, life and regret.

It's not so much in the lyrics of the song, but in the mood it creates.

So melancholy, so sweetly tragic, and oh, so very french....

so very true. this is my favorite song on the album. it really means a lot to me and it is so beautiful...that amazing synth that overtakes the lyrics toward the end of the song just breaks your heart it's so beautiful. this track is pure genius if you ask gets me every time.
