"If you didn't exist I would have to invent you...."
There are songs that stick with us, you might say like a country's national anthem. You know when you hear a song and it takes you back to an high school dance.... Crimson and Clover, Stairway to Heaven... or you hear a song on the radio which instantly puts you back in time (Jeremy was a Bullfrog, Come on Baby Light my Fire, One, Two, Three O'Clock...)
When I first came to France I realized that the songs I grew up with where not the songs French Husband grew up with. Songs that made me want to pull the car over to the side of the road, jump out and dance, were not the songs that set his heart on fire.
Many moons later, and many dinner parties, summer dances in the village later... I am feeling old French songs as my own... songs gather memories for us.
A French classic that I enjoy is "Paroles, Paroles" by Dalida (who every French person knows) and Alain Delon (Who ever French woman smiles when they hear his name.)
Just thought you might to listen to a French classic...
Who are you listening to today?
