French Pop - Carla Bruni



I love simple songs in all languages, especially French.
Here is the French President's wife in a former career as a songstress.
Maybe she still records?
I have no idea exactly what she is singing about, but it is definitely
very haunting, a bit sad, and very lovely all at the same time.
I don't care.

When I was working in a small boutique, I was playing a French song on the I Pod.  It was a cute, upbeat little ditty, that I really enjoyed and sounded very much like a children's lullaby.
A French couple came in and listened to it for a bit. I asked them what it was about and they told me it actually a song about the horrors of war.
Sometimes it's good not to understand the lyrics.
