Made in Belgium: Arno

For more than 3 decades the Belgian singer Arno brightens up the rock scene with his personality. I'll make a later post with his classics he made with TC Matic but he remained succesful in his solo career. In English, French or his Flemish coastal dialect , rock or chanson, soft or rough , a never compromising performer and a hell to interview....he's simply Arno.

In 2002 he got decorated in France as knight in the Order of Arts and Letters for his contribution to the French culture.



Dans les yeux de ma mère

- In my mother's eyes, there's always light -
a beautiful ode to mothers




Les filles du bord de mer
- a party classic where you get the entire hall waving across the floor shouting along CHOUETTE CHOUETTE





Brussels - 2010
his current single that has the gift to stick in my head all night long

@Brian: here's the translation for you :). I hope you like it.


My mother has something
Something dangerous
Something of a teaser
Something of a pain in the ass

She has eyes that kill
But I like her hands on my body
I love the smell under her arms
Yes I am like that

In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light
In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light
The love I always find it
in the eyes of my mother
In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light

My mother always listens
When I'm in trouble
She knows when I am weak and con
And when I'm drunk as a whale
She knows my feet stink
She knows how I'm naked
But when I'm sick
She is the queen of the suppository

In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light
In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light
The love I always find it
In the eyes of my mother
In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light

My mother has something
Something dangerous
Something of a teaser
Something of a pain in the ass

In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light
In the eyes of my mother
There is always a light
In the eyes of my mother.
