Great French Songs: La Vie en Rose & Other Hits
Pierre Delanoe & Alain Poulanges. The romantic French popular songs of the 1950s & Ď60s bring back memories of smoky cabarets in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, of Edith Piaf singing her heart away, of Charles Trenetís or Maurice Chevalierís unique Gallic wit & charm, the tough sexiness of Yves Montand or Charles Aznavour, & Juliette Grecoís lovestruck poetry. This enchanting book, which includes a CD reproducing some of the greatest popular hits of our time, is a veritable hymn to the French chansonnier tradition, to its lyricism & droll play on words, its summoning up of sadness by day & passion at night. Each chapter is devoted to a theme & a song it inspired -- love, Paris, joy, nostalgia -- & is illustrated by stunning photos of the artists, sheet music, record covers, & posters.
