  • Lyrics
  • This is the seventh track on French rock band Phoenix's fourth studio album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.
  • Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars explained to the Washington DC free newspaper Express : "I think a lot of French guys have this weird connection with Rome. Rome is almost like Venice; I think it would be the same for Americans when they go to Paris. We wanted a song that was really epic."
