Amaury Vassili has developed a bad boy rep of late, but France’s Eurovision 2011 representative is moving on. His newest single, “C’est Comme Ça Que Je T’Aime (This Is How I Love You)”, shows no signs of his troubled past, but rather a new romantic adventure.

Amaury Vassili – “C’est Comme Ça Que Je T’Aime” Lyric Video

The track is taken from his most recent studio album,  “Amaury Vassili Chante Mike Brant”, which as the title suggests, is a tribute to the 1970s crooner Mike Brant. The song is very much of its era and sounds like “Puppy Love”, if it was in a minor key. It matches the suave, romantic vibe of the 1960 hit by Paul Anka, but fails to match its quality. At times Amaury sounds like he’s yelling, rather than seducing. Still, this is big, loud, and dramatic, and that’s what any good song is… right? Not Amaury’s best, but it could be much worse.

Anggun And Mike Brant – “C’est Comme Ça Que Je T’aime”

Amaury isn’t the first Eurovision star to tackle this classic. France’s 2012 diva, Anggun, recorded a virtual duet with the deceased Brant a few years back. How does it compare to Amaury’s version?

“C’est Comme Ça Que Je T’Aime” – Lyrics

C’est comme ça que je t’aime
Comme un dieu qui se meurt
Pour l’amour d’une reine
Un poignard dans le cœur

C’est comme ça que je t’aime
Comme un fou malgré moi
J’ai ton sang dans mes veines
Et tes larmes de joie

Ma vie se brûle dans un cri
Dans un volcan dans ma folie
Des nuits entières auprès de toi
Je vis, je meurs, à chaque fois

C’est comme ça que je t’aime
Riche et pauvre à la fois
Orgueilleux, infidèle
Valeureux, fou de joie

Ma vie s’arrache de mon cœur
Se brise en millions de couleurs
On fait l’amour et dans tes bras
Je vis, je meurs, à chaque fois

C’est comme ça que je t’aime
Prisonnier malgré moi
J’ai mon sang dans tes veines
Et je suis fou de toi

English Translation

This is how I love you
a god who is dying
for the love of a queen
a dagger in the heart

This is how I love you
like crazy despite myself
I have your blood in my veins
and your tears of joy

My life is burning in a shout
in a volcano in my madness
all night with you
I live, I die every time

This is how I love you
rich and poor both
proud, unfaithful
brave, overjoyed

My life tore my heart
shatters into millions of colors
we make love and in your arms
I live, I die every time

This is how I love you
prisoner against my will
I have my blood in your veins
and I’m crazy about you

To tell the truth,I like Amaury’s voice and style.But I would also like to hear him singing new songs written for him and/or by him.Original work is the most perfect way to establish one’s talent.Till then,just enjoy!
