French Chanson Star Edith Piaf!

Wow, the first week of the year 2018 is already over. We spent the first days of it in the (at least at two days) snowy mountains of the Harz and had a very relaxed start. Now it’s time to work again. But hey, let’s begin the daily routine with some French chanson á la Edith Piaf. …I love the rough big voice of this little lady who clearly is one of my musical heroines.

Happy listening!

Si jamais j’oublie by ZAZ!

“Si jamais j’oublie – Les nuits que j’ai passé – Les guitares et les cris – Rappelle moi qui je suis – Pourquoi je suis en vie – Si jamais j’oublie – Les jambes à mon cou – Si un jour je fuis – Rappelle-moi qui je suis – Ce que je m’étais promis”

A song that’s an attitude of life: Si jamais j’oublie by  French singer-songwriter (and everybody’s darling) ZAZ. It’s from her 2015 live album Sur la route. The message of the song is simple and important: Never forget where you come from and all those wonderful experiences that created yourself, your dreams and your personality. A perfect mood-lifter for rainy late-summer days!

Happy listening!

A Song For Tuesday: On Ne Vit Pas Sans Se Dire Adieu by Mireille Mathieu!

On ne vit pas sans se dire adieu
On ne vit pas sans mourir un peu
Sans abandonner pour aller plus loin
Sur son chemin quelque chose ou quelqu’un!

Mireille Mathieu’s song On Ne Vit Pas Sans Se Dire Adieu may be about a lover who is gone for good, but today it is dedicated to a grand dame who loved the Montmartre and will always be one of the big loves of my life: My grandma.

XO!

A New Passion: French Crime by Jean-Luc Bannalec!

BannalecPic by Franzi.

Jean-Luc Bannalec’s crime series around commissar Dupin – a policeman from Paris, who is coffee-addicted and reassigned to serve in Brittany – is a new passion of mine. Lately I have to travel a lot by bus. Unfortunately I am not able to read in cars or busses since I feel sick after only a few minutes. So, I downloaded some audio books. I already listened to two of the four books of the commissar Dupin series (around 20 hours of listening ;)) and can only recommend it highly! The books are available in French and German.

I wish you a wonderful weekend – with lots of thrilling adventures :)!
