What a lovely song!

Thank you Yoli. The song is very lovely indeed, the singer - even lovelier! The entire country was in love with Gilbert Becaud!

I love your song Natalie.

Hi Dapo,
when are we going to discuss Gogol again!?!?!?

Mission accomplished, Natalie, on this one. It is fascinating, and I understand why you love the song and the singer. With the visuals, there was almost too much to absorb -- at least, until the very last photograph. A chuckle.

Some of the photos made me like winter again, and think of Natalie dressed in fur walking on a snowy night.

When the pace of the music picked up, I thought of my grandfather. He was a tank driver with Patton's Third Army, and among those who met the Soviet troops at the Elbe. There is a photograph of him trying to dance with them. Now you know who I take after.

I bet you a dollar, Fram, that your grandfather drove, at least once (!!), the T-34, if he was a true tankist!!! I bet he was!!!

Thinking of your grandfather and the WWII, recalled one of my favorite movie, the Stalag 17 – the scene in women’s part of the camp by the bathhouse??? And the Animal!!!! Ohh that was brilliant!
P.S. Just for the record, how long it took you to download the video!?!?!??!

There was a wonderful French film, maybe 10+ years ago, that featured this song kind of worked into the plot, along with many others. Anyone recall the title?
