Discovering More WWII French Music

You all know I speak French, heck, I'm proudly Alsatian :) And I love WWII and pre-WWII French music. Jacqueline Francois, Lucienne Delyle, Mistinguett, Maurice Chevalier, I love the old songs.

I adore Lucienne Delyle, and today, I was introduced to Lucienne Boyer....

Parlez-Moi d'Amour


Un Amour Comme le Notre

C'est Toujours la meme Chanson

French music makes me think of my roots, peut-etre des autres vies, and of course, it makes me think of my Mom, who introduced me to the language through music.

Right now, through the magic that is my employment, I'm being offered further training in French. I think there is nothing easier for practicing your accent quite like imitating any of the above, especially the sassy, sexy Mistinguett.

Normally about this time of year I switch from French music to Spanish (Cuban, and other South American). I can sing both. But I'll linger just a little longer this year.
