Revenge Wednesday Jam ~ 'Eblouie par la nuit (Dazzled by the Night)'



Dazzled by the night's mortal lights

With cars driving close by me and my pupils thin as pins

I waited for you 100 years long in the black-and-white streets

You came over, whistling
Dazzled by the night's mortal lights

Kicking the cans on the ground, as lost as a ship

If I lost my mind, I loved you and even worse

You came over, whistling


Most weeks, I tend to favor songs about revenge in one form or another when I bring you a Honey Jam. This week, I've decided to instead bring you a song that features in one of my favorite revenge films, Dead Man Down. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev, Dead Man Down came out in 2013 and was mostly ignored by audiences because the marketing for it sucked. But this is one of those movies I could watch every day and never get tired of it. So this week's song, "Eblouie par la nuit" by French singer Zaz, is a gorgeous love song that plays over a surprisingly optimistic ending. So once again, watch the damn movie. But also, enjoy this week's Revenge Jam! ~RH
