Old days...

OK, so @MXML on Twitter posted a link to a sound track of L'aventurier by Indochine. Instantaneous flashback to '82 in Europe, when 'Bob Morane' burst onto the scene... 'le roi de la terre'... Enjoy!



Egaré dans la vallée infernale
Le héros s'appelle Bob Morane
A la recherche de l'Ombre Jaune
Le bandit s'appelle Mister Kali Jones
Avec l'ami Bill Ballantine
Sauvé de justesse des crocodiles
Stop au trafic des Caraïbes
Escale dans l'opération Nadawieb

Le coeur tendre dans le lit de Miss Clark
Prisonnière du Sultan de Jarawak
En pleine terreur à Manicouagan
Isolé dans la jungle birmane
Emprisonnant les flibustiers
L'ennemi est démasqué
On a volé le collier de Civa
Le Maradjah en répondra

refrain
Et soudain surgit face au vent
Le vrai héros de tous les temps
Bob Morane contre tous chacal
L'aventurier contre tous les guerrier
Bob Morane contre tous chacal
L'aventurier contre tous les guerrier

Dérivant à bord du Sampang
L'aventure au parfum d'Ylalang
Son surnom, Samouraï du Soleil
En démantelant le gang de l'Archipel
L'otage des guerriers du Doc Xhatan
Il s'en sortira toujours à temps
Tel l'aventurier solitaire
Bob Morane est le roi de la terre

  2. Lost in the infernal valley
    The hero's name is Bob Morane
    Searching for 'The Yellow Shadow'
    The gangster's name is Mister Kali Jones
    With friend Bill Ballantine
    Barely saved from the crocodiles
    Stopping trafficking in the Caribbean
    Stopover in 'Operation Nadawieb'

    Tender heart in the bed of Miss Clark
    Captive of the Sultan of Jarawak
    Scared out of his wits in Manicouagan
    Isolated in the Burmese jungle
    Imprisoning the buccaneers
    The enemy is unmasked
    Someone stole the collar of Shiva
    The Maharajah will answer for it

    (Refrain)
    And suddenly emerging against the wind
    The true hero of all time
    Bob Morane against all jackals
    The adventurer against all warriors
    Bob Morane against all jackals
    The adventurer against all warriors

    Adrift on board the Sampang
    The adventure of 'The Perfume of Ylalang'
    His surname, Samurai of the Sun
    While dismantling the gang of the archipelago
    Hostage of the warriors of Doc Xhatan
    He'll always get out in time
    Such is the solitary adventurer
    Bob Morane is the king of the world

    Somewhat incoherent but very cool... Based on a character in a series of books, see link below. I'm sorry I haven't seen any of the Bob Morane bédé (i.e BD, Bande Dessinées = comic strips, a.k.a graphic novels)
