Today’s song is the song The Operation by the British-French singer / actress Charlotte Gainsbourg from her 2006 album 5:55.

This lyrically strange / somewhat creepy / intimate song was among my favorite songs on this album, and I even used this song years ago in a Death Note anime music video called: Death Note The Operation.

Lyrics (By Google Search)

I want to explore you
I’m gonna get under your skin
So you can feel me running through your veins
I want to examine
Every inch of your frame
The pressure points that cause your joy and pain
Our love goes under the knife
There is no room for doubt
Now I’m inside you
My hands can feel their way
Further inside than I have ever been
Now I can really
Mess around with your heart
And fill it to the brim with broken dreams
Our love goes under the knife
Two lives may be saved
And if I pull this off
I’ll refuse the Nobel prize
Instead I will look into your eyes
If I pull this off your whole body will be mine
And I’m prepared to work throughout the night
Our love goes under the knife
Nothing is taboo
Here on the cutting edge of science
Too much information
I feel I’m getting lost
Absorbed into the fiber of your soul
Deep within the abattoir
Of your entrails your insides
Lost in you forever far from home
Our love goes under the knife
Someone got too close
Our love goes under the knife
The heart was rejected by the host

Songwriters: Jarvis Branson Cocker / Jean Benoit Dunckel / Nicolas Jean Michel Godin

Death Note The Operation By John Jr

I am experimenting to see if YouTube will let me upload some old videos that I made years ago, and here is the first video which is called Death Note The Operation:

The video above is a low quality partly messed up backup of an anime music video that I made using Windows Movie Maker years ago using the song The Operation by Charlotte Gainsbourg from her album 5:55 combined with some scenes from the Japanese anime (animated) television show Death Note episode 6 (Unraveling) and episode 7 (Overcast) that involve the characters Light Yagami and Naomi Misora so watch those two episodes to add some context to this music video or otherwise it will look like a creepy stalker video which is not what it is meant to be.

This was possibly the first music video that I ever made, I can not remember what inspired me to make it, but I assume that maybe the idea to make this came to my mind while listening to the song The Operation by Charlotte Gainsbourg after watching those two episodes of Death Note.

This video was made for non-profit and educational and entertainment purposes under possible fair use conditions, and I do not own the copyright for the song or video.

If you like the song and / or the video, please support Charlotte Gainsbourg and the makers of Death Note by legally purchasing their content.

Thank you,

The Daily Post had a Daily Prompt today called Teen Age Idol, and this is what it said:

Who did you idolize as a teenager?

Did you go crazy for the Beatles?

Ga-ga over Duran Duran?

In love with Justin Bieber?

Did you think Elvis was the livin’ end?

And this is my response:

I never really liked the word idolize or that extreme level of fandom, and so I am going to have to say that I did not idolize anyone.
