"And joy splashed by its smileTranspierce me and flashes back at the bottom of meBut suddenly I push a cry among the laughterWhen crowd comes to tear off it among my arms…"Such a beautiful love song- especially sung in French.
Edith Piaf, reminds me of the scene in Saving Private Ryan when Jeremy Davies translates the love song from a record player they found in the town they made their last stand. Cool stuff.
getto: I didn't know the translation and unfortunately don't know French, so thanks for the enlightenment here.josh: I love her so. She's lovely to listen to, but even better when you can watch her too. I've never seen that movie, though.
Classic. A fine choice, mate.Edith Piaf's life-story is tragic and hopeful. This is a great tune, like so many of hers...
winters: I don't know much about Edith Piaf's story, but a co-worker of mine who's based in Paris mentioned that it's quite tragic. I look forward to learning more.
