Give me the words

I can't shake this song.

In a Manner of Speaking was originally written and recorded in the early 1980s by the experimental postpunk band Tuxedomoon. In 2004, Nouvelle Vague, a French band creating bossa nova covers of punk and new wave classics, reinterpreted the song with haunting vocals by Camille Dalmais.

Described as "moving poetry," the video is an artful blend of words, music and revision. You can also experience the original Tuxedomoon song here.
