C'est Marrant Que Vous Demandiez Cela

Marcher Sur Planète C

C'est Marrant Que Vous Demandiez Cela


Vue de ma chambre d'hotel au petit matin

Je me suis levé très tot ce matin pour rencontrer un réalisateur/producteur qui était en ville pour un tournage, et qui a lu mes mémoires, "Le Freak." On a parlé de faire un film sur ma vie.

A un moment il me demande: "Est-ce que quelqu'un a tourné un film amateur sur vous avant que vous ne devieniez CHIC?" J'ai répondu, "Il y a quelques semaines j'ai vu des vidéos de moi jouant dans un groupe qui aurait pu devenir CHIC. C'est Marrant Que Vous Demandiez Cela."

 


The Big Apple Band jouant "Getaway." Nous deviendrons bientot The CHIC Organization.

You will hear a Nile Rodgers song today. It will make you happy.

Today's pop music—genre-crossing, gender-bending, racially mixed, visually stylish, and dominated by dance music with global appeal—is the world that Nile Rodgers created. In the 1970s and 1980s, he wrote and produced the songs that defined that era and everything that came after: "Le Freak," "Good Times," "We Are Family," "Like a Virgin," "Modern Love," "I'm Coming Out," "The Reflex," "Rapper's Delight." Aside from his own band, Chic, he worked with everyone from Diana Ross and Madonna to David Bowie and Duran Duran (not to mention Mick Jagger, Debbie Harry, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Michael Jackson, Prince, Rod Stewart, Robert Plant, Depeche Mode, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Grace Jones, Bryan Ferry, INXS, and the B-52's), transforming their music, selling millions of records, and redefining what a pop song could be.
