"Des mots qui sonnent" (meaning "Words That Sound") is a song from the Dion chante Plamondon album by Céline Dion. It was released as the first (but radio only) single on October 14 1991 in Canada.
Céline Dion interprets the words of Luc Plamondon, pop lyricist of French-speaking Canada. The music was written by Aldo Nova who already collaborated with Dion on her 1987 Incognito album.
"Des mots qui sonnent" was later included on Dion's Canadian maxi-single "Beauty and the Beast."
Although "Des mots qui sonnent" was a radio release only, a music video was made, featuring Luc Plamondon and Aldo Nova as guest appearances. This video was directed by Alain Desrochers in October 1991. It was included later on the On ne change pas DVD (2005).
Live version of "Des mots qui sonnent" can be found on Céline Dion's 1994 À l'Olympia album. The song became also a part of Dion's 2005 greatest hits CD, called On ne change pas.
"Des mots qui sonnent" peaked at number 10 on the Quebec Airplay chart and stayed there for 17 weeks.
