I first discovered Mylène Farmer in 1996, when I was still in high school. I remember watching a French charity event on television in which she performed the song Rêver (to dream) live. I was mesmerised by her beauty and her voice, by the emotion she displayed in the performance (she cried).
So here we are, ten years later. These days we tend to take search engines and video sharing sites for granted. Ten years ago I wished that I’d taped the show so I could experience it again.
I give you Rêver, by Mylène Farmer, in Les Enfants de la Guerre (TF1). The date is 27 November 1996.
