"Peut-être-toi" is a 2005 song recorded by the French artist Mylène Farmer. It was the fifth single from her sixth studio album, "Avant que l'ombre...", and was released on August 21, 2006. Its music video was produced as an animated feature and its lyrics deals with a love relationship. It was a top three hit in France, but its sales were rather modest.

Background and release

In May 2005, the fans were disappointed when "Q.I" was chosen as the second single, while "Peut-être toi" was already broadcast on radio and then seemed to be a next single."Le Dictionnaire des Chansons de Mylène Farmer", Benoît Cachin, 2006, Tournon Ed., p. 195] Later, as of May 22, 2006, a rumor announced "Dans les rues de Londres" as the fifth single from the album. ["L'Intégrale Mylene Farmer", Erwan Chuberre, 2007, City Ed., p. 246 (ISBN 978-2-35288-108-7)] However, on June 16, 2006, it was officially announced that "Peut-être toi" would be the fifth and last single from "Avant que l'ombre..." [Mylène Farmer's news in 2006 [http://www.mylene.net/modules/index.php?r=28 Mylene.net] (Retrieved December 20, 2007)]

The song was broadcast for the first time on June 19, on NRJ, in the 'radio edit' version. On June 26, the first remix, called 'Miss Farmer's remix', was presented but no aired. On July 6, the two versions - 'radio edit' and 'Miss Farmer's remix' - were available on digital download websites. Twenty-one days later, the second remix - 'Cox's remix' -, was officially announced. The single was eventually released on August 21, in three limited editions : CD single, CD maxi et 12" vinyl."Peut-être toi", chronology [http://www.mylene.net/mylene/d_s_peutetretoi.php Mylène.net] (Retrieved December 17, 2007)]

The first remix was produced by Bionix (he also produced one of them for "L'Amour n'est rien...") and the two others were made by Chris Cox (who also remixed "Désenchantée" and "Q.I").

"Peut-être toi" was performed during the 2006 Farmer's tour, and thus it is available on the live album "Avant que l'ombre... à Bercy" (track 2, CD 1, 3:27).

Lyrics and music

Song's lyrics are optimistic, which is very rare in Farmer's career. In the refrain, the singer explains to her lover that he should prevent her from speaking "if her dark universe exceeded her love". The song is punctuated with several "Shut up" sung by Farmer and has dance sonorities.

Music video

The music video was produced as an anime by Production I.G, a famous Japanese anime company and was directed by Kusumi Naoko, Kazuchika Kise and Shuichi Hirata. It was originally intended to illustrate "Fuck Them All", ["Mylène Farmer, l'icône", "Jukebox", n°253, p. 10 [http://www.devant-soi.com/Monde-de-Myl%E8ne/presse/articles-presse/2008/02-2008-JUKEBOX-N253-3.jpgDevant-soi.com] (Retrieved May 13, 2008)] as the booklet of "Music Video IV" proves it indicating that the video was produced in 2005. ["Mylène Farmer, le culte - L'envers du décor", Sophie Khairallah, 2007, Why Not Ed., p. 44]

On July 7, the videoclip was presented by Universal in a 20 seconds version on mobile phone, and in its full version by Orange, the day after. Then it was also presented on several websites : on Yahoo Music five days after, and on Orange website, on July 21.

The video, presented on TV on July 19, was the more broadcast of those from album "Avant que l'ombre...". It was also available in download on I-tunes on July 29. During a musical programme named "Les 100 Meilleurs Clips du XXIè siècle" aired on MCM on February 25, 2007, this video reached number four (behind those of "Fuck Them All" (#1) and "Redonne-moi" (#3)) thanks to the voters of the TV viewers.
