Marie's homage to Tennessee Williams
There must be good reasons for classics to be classics. Reading A Streetcar Named Desire I caught myself wishing it would never stop. The inherent beauty of every line, the essence of something mesmerising, which makes it hard to close the book. And I was wondering if all good things came out of tormented souls like the one of Tennessee Williams.

“They told me to take a streetcar named Desire and then transfer to one called Cemeteries and ride six blocks and get off at - Elysian Fields!” A Streetcar Named Desire
“My only point, the only point that I'm making, is life has got to be allowed to continue even after the dream of life is--all--over....” Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
And then I remembered that song, homage to Tennessee Williams, by Johnny Halliday (written by Michel Berger). I'm not a fan of Johnny in general but there are a few of his songs I really like, and this is one of them. Maybe I also like it because of the fake american setting of the video which is actually quite charming. Enjoy!
