Artist: Plastic Bertrand
Song: "Ça Plane Pour Moi"
Organization The Drugline in Belgium
But that ringing in your head isn't a hangover, it's "Ça Plane Pour Moi" ("This Life's for Me") by Plastic Bertrand, a perfect complement to this ad by The Drug Line Belgium. The 1977 anthem describes a disastrous teenage bender (translated lyrics):
Wham bam, my cat Splash
is rolling around on my bed. He swallowed
his tongue as he drank all my whisky
As for me, I've hardly slept, I feel empty and reprimanded
I had to sleep in the gutter,
where I had a flash of inspiration
In four colours
This famous tune has inspired covers by Sonic Youth and Presidents of the United States of America. One cover version was even featured in a Pepsi commercial earlier this year. It's got some nasty French words, but it's nowhere near as lurid as the original that inspired it.
