is it really IU's voice? it sounds a bit different.
b1gay4 23rd-Feb-2013 09:48 pm (UTC)
audio was edited to avoid it being taken down
tryxkittie 24th-Feb-2013 12:11 am (UTC)
interesting...how was it edited? like was the voice lowered or something?
b1gay4 24th-Feb-2013 04:57 am (UTC)
pitch raised, and the audio itself is rough around the edges.

This is such a bad cover, holy flying cow, no no no

this is a cover?
benihime99 23rd-Feb-2013 03:51 pm (UTC)
Yep english version of "le temps des cathédrales" which was written for the french musical "Notre Dame de Paris" back in 1998

(shitty MV but it was 1998)

YES, THAT'S IT!!! The melody of IU's song just sounded like something I KNEW I had heard before, but I couldn't place it!

THANK YOU FOR SHARING! I'm so glad that I found this song again!! But I personally don't think IU'S cover is bad (of course not as great as the original one! Covers never are, in my opinion! ^.~).
b1gay4 23rd-Feb-2013 09:32 pm (UTC)
you don't understand omf last night when i found IU's cover i ended up listening to the french version 104 times it's crazy
benihime99 24th-Feb-2013 12:59 pm (UTC)
I've been singing it since yesterday, people look at me like I'm crazy XD

Quelle époque xD J'étais amoureuse de Garou quand j'étais petite.
bluehachimitsu 24th-Feb-2013 11:36 pm (UTC)
Haha i had a very strong feeling that it would be a cover of this song when i read "The Age Of Cathedrals" , it brings me back 13 years ago, (or so?) watching music shows that aired on saturday nights with my parents...
hongaerin 23rd-Feb-2013 09:28 pm (UTC)
Il est venuuuuuuuuuuu le temps des cathédraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaales

OMG I can't believe IU is covering this song ahahah what's going on ?
I remember singing this at school when I was 8 or 9 ahahah
tingleinmytoews 23rd-Feb-2013 10:06 pm (UTC)
lmaoo all I could think of while listening to this was Bruno Pelletier and his long ass hair! XD I loved Notre Dame de Paris when I was a kid
soramai 23rd-Feb-2013 10:16 pm (UTC)
Lol, ikr?
eleclya111 23rd-Feb-2013 10:51 pm (UTC)
I don't think it's bad but they did strange things with the music... and it's hard to compare to Bruno's flawlessness.
ninomiy4r4shi 24th-Feb-2013 06:30 pm (UTC)
I KNEW IT!!!!!

Since I read the title I suspected this.

I hated it.
illustratedd 23rd-Feb-2013 03:38 pm (UTC)

chanqsun 23rd-Feb-2013 03:45 pm (UTC)

a_cheshire_grin 23rd-Feb-2013 04:10 pm (UTC)
I knew this song would be PERFECT and it is!!! *____________*<33
hellodee16 23rd-Feb-2013 04:14 pm (UTC)
why... is it in english? is this an international release or something?
b1gay4 23rd-Feb-2013 09:28 pm (UTC)
the song was originally in french but was translated to english for the english version of the play "hunchback of notre dame". there is no korean version this is just a cover :-)
hellodee16 24th-Feb-2013 06:22 am (UTC)
oic, thanks
sadistic_dance 23rd-Feb-2013 04:20 pm (UTC)

I love it but at the same time I don't understand the english lol
kuuuchan 23rd-Feb-2013 07:39 pm (UTC)
the song is good but her english is not that good..
gunsandsmoke 23rd-Feb-2013 09:01 pm (UTC)
i love it tbh... and the cheesy synth bits in this cover makes me realize she needs to do a videogame ost song/cover asap cos that would be gr8888
4minutesluts 25th-Feb-2013 12:17 pm (UTC)
like this?

gunsandsmoke 26th-Feb-2013 03:46 am (UTC)
naw man i was thinking more in the vein of ffxiii. she would do that faye wong song JUSTICE imo
hongaerin 23rd-Feb-2013 09:32 pm (UTC)
THIS IS CRAZY! When I saw the title I thought "She's not really covering this song, right ?"

This song is my whole childhood ahah
It's a cover from a French musical "Notre Dame de Paris" (1998). It's a VERY famous song here, everyone could sing it to you!
wondermusume 23rd-Feb-2013 10:08 pm (UTC)
I kinda like it... ♥__________♥ w/o the subs I wouldn't understand what she's saying but I still like it.
soramai 23rd-Feb-2013 10:21 pm (UTC)
le temps des cathédrales ... now I have the song stuck in my head.

I love IU voice.
lovelyxbeauty 23rd-Feb-2013 10:31 pm (UTC)
I'm so excited for this :D I have just ore-ordered my copies, can't wait to get them in my hands. I also hope this is the direction her music is going in when she returns to Korea :D
superjesster 23rd-Feb-2013 10:37 pm (UTC)
This is so great *_______* ♥
lee_chikin 23rd-Feb-2013 11:22 pm (UTC)
I've always thought adaptations of the musical in other languages don't really hold a candle up to the French original one. From the Italian version I only tolarate Gringoire and it helped that the actor was a hottie ;)
That said, she sings well, I just don't like the english adaptation.
tryxkittie 24th-Feb-2013 12:13 am (UTC)
I like it but when it gets to the higher registers it just feels kind of screechy. Plus it's very repetitive, but I do think it's interesting and atmospheric <3
annhh 24th-Feb-2013 03:21 pm (UTC)
love it. I can make do with her english no problemos. covers tend to turn out worse but in this I'd rather pick IU's version. *dodging bricks* excuse me for not sharing the same emotional memories with the original
pivotandsway 4th-Mar-2013 02:17 am (UTC)
w/e ia w/ you
ninomiy4r4shi 24th-Feb-2013 06:36 pm (UTC)
I like IU but seriously... this one was a mess.

As someone mentioned above, the high notes are just... No. And the english sounds very awkward.

I'll stick with the Bruno's version. Because it reminds me my childhood. And it's amazing.

She tried.
ceecile 25th-Feb-2013 12:02 am (UTC)
Lmao takes me back to when I thought as Garou was hot.
I will have this song stuck in my head for a week for sure.
