Il sait si bien nous émouvoir. Merci! Avec quelques larmes de tristesse...
I'm not a huge fan of Variété Française, except for Monsieur Contat & Co., but they don't really count.That was nice though.
C'est beau à en pleurer, Claudia? :) C'est la Craic,actually I am no fan of anyone or anything, but the older I get the more respect I get for the lifework of Charles Aznavour. Monsieur Contat? Here you caught me. :) And trying to look it up I did not find any trace in the internet. Please anlighten me, Monsieur.
That would be M Bertrand Contat of one of my favourite bands, Noir Desir.http://www.deezer.com/track/2179948although I have admit that I'm somewhat annoyed at M. Contat for showing me up for the hyprocrite I am.
Je pleure pour ma jeunesse évanouie...
La beauté est éphimère, la jeunesse reste au coeur... et le vent nous portera.
Ah! Merci, C'est La Craic. Vous êtes un parfait gentilhomme, et aussi un poète de marque.:)
Well, if you insist.p.s. the 'le vent nous portera' is a reference to another Noir Désir song.http://www.deezer.com/track/2179942
I'm listening to 'Le Vent nous portera'. Beautiful song. Thank you, C'est La Craic. Didn't know Noir Désir. Will enjoy what is offered on YouTube.
I agree Sean - Charles Aznavour was not only a great entertainer but humanitarian as well.
A very exceptional man! He's playing in Toronto, on April 26th. A friend is taking me to hear him. I hope I'll be able to control my emotion. He brings back so many memories and he speaks so movingly of the years gone by. The first time I heard him, he sang, "Yes, my time is coming." The audience was enthralled...
C'est La Craic,echoing Claudia: Thanks for the link. Like both the music and the band's name.Janice,indeed. Unlike quite a few other 'very important artist' he's no boaster.Claudia,interesting you mention "Yes, my time is coming." - I posted it recently, but cancelled it as I did not wish readers to draw wrong conclusions. :)Enjoy the concert - and before don't forget to check your bag for the hankies. :)
