Complainte De La Butte

As a monoglot I have never considered French any more beautiful than Spanish or German (in fact I love the sounds of German). But there is something about French in song....

Spent this weekend in Cardiff with Lou and Joe, enjoying their company and music collection. I have no idea what the French music was or what the translation might have been, but it was lovely...

And the French Eurovision song was the best one.... do a youtube search.

Stunning, our Monsieur Rufus.....I couldn't agree more. A french ballad stirs me in a way no other language can......but always love Rufus' soulful sound.

we have some beautiful Acadian music in my province of New Brunswick.....I should try to post some on my blog.....

lovely........
