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,

Portion used	

The entire cover: because the image is cover art, a form of product packaging, the entire image is needed to identify the product, properly convey the meaning and branding intended, and avoid tarnishing or misrepresenting the image.
Low resolution?	

The copy is of sufficient resolution for commentary and identification but lower resolution than the original cover. Copies made from it will be of inferior quality, unsuitable as artwork on pirate versions or other uses that would compete with the commercial purpose of the original artwork.
Purpose of use	

Main infobox. The image is used for identification in the context of critical commentary of the work for which it serves as cover art. It makes a significant contribution to the user's understanding of the article, which could not practically be conveyed by words alone. The image is placed in the infobox at the top of the article discussing the work, to show the primary visual image associated with the work, and to help the user quickly identify the work and know they have found what they are looking for. Use for this purpose does not compete with the purposes of the original artwork, namely the artist's providing graphic design services to music concerns and in turn marketing music to the public.

As musical cover art, the image is not replaceable by free content; any other image that shows the packaging of the music would also be copyrighted, and any version that is not true to the original would be inadequate for identification or commentary.
