Les Pages

One way to get into that French mood is to play French music. And there are some fabulous tunes out there. I particularly love the song Les Pages by Myrtille. Of course I could not understand the lyrics at first but I loved the melody and arrangement. I heard her version with instrumental on the CD Paris by Putumayo. Then I found on YouTube the version with just her singing and it is amazing. I found the French lyrics online, and then used Babelfish to translate them into English. Beautiful!

 

J’ai ecrit des monceaux des pages, sur des papiers differents…

 

It doesn’t matter if you can understand the lyrics or not, the feel of the French culture permeates your soul whenever you listen to French music. It is fun to try to work out the words too and see if your understanding of the song is on track. I find when I am finding the raw Aussie culture grating on my nerves that listening to French or Italian music soothes my sensitive soul and reminds me of the nature of beauty and that there are some people in this world who share this appreciation.
