Niagara – Pendant Que Les Champs Brûlent

Niagara – Pendant Que Les Champs Brûlent Niagara is the name of a French synthpop duo that achieved popularity both in France and Canada from 1986 to 1989. The band, who was known under the name L’Ombre jaune from 1982 to 1984, was formed in Rennes, France, in 1984, by vocalist Muriel Laporte (later known as Muriel Moreno) and keyboardist Daniel Chenevez. They were frequently compared to the UK duo Eurythmics.Wikipedia®

Niagara – Pendant Que Les Champs Brûlent 1990

They became famous in France when they issued in 1985 their first single, “Tchiki boum”, which was followed in the summer 1986 by their second single, “L’amour à la plage”. 200,000 copies of each single were sold in France, becoming both silver disc. Driven by exotic-looking Laporte’s charisma and singing ability, the duo released their first album in 1986, Encore un dernier baiser which included their first two hits and a new single, “Je dois m’en aller”. Their second and most popular release was the album Quel enfer in 1989 ; the video for the lightweight “Soleil d’hiver” received frequent airplay in Canada, leading to the group forming a following in North America. Also in 1989, their singles “J’ai vu” and “Pendant que les champs brûlent” became minor hits in central Europe. Niagara released two more albums: Religion in 1990 (which introduced a harder-edged sound to their music) and La Vérité in 1992 before the band (and the real-life couple of Laporte/Moreno-Chenevez) separated. Both musicians went on to solo careers. In 2002, a compilation entitled Flammes was released (also released as double CD and DVD), containing all the band’s hits. It hit No. 1 for three weeks on the French Compilations Chart.

Niagara – Pendant Que Les Champs Brûlent Lyrics
Written By: Chenevez, Laporte

Des arbres se penchent:
C’est plus fort, plus fort que tout.
Accrochée aux branches,
L’air me semble encore trop doux.
Dans l’herbe écrasée, à compter mes regrets.
Allumette craquée et tout part en fumée.

Pendant que les champs brûlent
J’attends que mes larmes viennent,
Et quand la plaine ondule
Que jamais rien ne m’atteigne…

Ce soir-là on s’est embrassés sans se parler.
Autour de nous, le monde aurait pu s’écrouler.
Les yeux cernés, des poussières dans les cheveux.
Au long de mes jambes, la caresse du feu.

Pendant que les champs brûlent
J’attends que mes larmes viennent,
Et quand la plaine ondule
Que jamais rien ne m’atteigne…

Les yeux cernés, des poussières dans les cheveux.
Au long de mes jambes, la caresse du feu.

Pendant que les champs brûlent
J’attends que mes larmes viennent,
Et quand la plaine ondule
Que jamais rien ne m’atteigne…

Pendant que les champs brûlent
J’attends que mes larmes viennent,
Et quand la plaine ondule
Que jamais rien ne m’atteigne…
