Famous lyrics by »

Marc Collin is a French musician, film music composer and record producer. He is best known as the founder, with Olivier Libaux, of the project Nouvelle Vague, a covers band that covers new wave songs in a bossa nova style. Collin also released a side-project album in 2008 under his own name, titled Hollywood, mon amour, consisting of covers, on the Nouvelle Vague formula, of songs from 1980s film soundtracks. Collin stated that he did not embark on the project out of nostalgia for the films, but because he was drawn to the challenge of transforming extremely well-known hits into intimate tracks.Collin has worked on several film soundtracks, notably that of 1998's Les Kidnappeurs, directed by Graham Guit. The main theme of Collin's score was included in collections such as Café del Mar Volume 6. He collaborated with the Lebanese singer Yasmine Hamdan as a co-writer and producer on her album Ya Nass (2012).Collin cited as influences, "The post-punk bands like The Cure, New Order, and also the labels like Factory, Crammed, Les Disques du Crépuscule. All these people that have created an attitude that makes other people discover artwork other than music." He cited Radiohead's Kid A (2000) as a favourite album.
