About my Covers
"I won't dance"
I hope you will enjoy this cover of mine. I am very fond of the movie Roberta; there's everything I like in it; it is both fun and moving, and it's good-natured fun; there's romance, there's music, there's singing, there's dancing, lots of humor and joie de vivre and elegance too, a mix of French and American and of course wonderful actors and actresses. It is very very enjoyable from beginning to end. If you are interested you can watch the movie on Dailymotion.
PS: oh, by the way, I love to dance. I have always loved it, ever since I was very little. And I never refuse an invitation to dance, provided the gentleman is a good and well-mannered dancer ;)
I was in my car the other day when I heard this song "Busy Line"; I found it both fun and very interesting and I thought it would be nice to cover it. Many thanks for listening :)
"Music for the World"
For this video I started out with the keyboard - I did not use any pre-recorded sounds. I did not have anything specific in mind when I started playing; I just wanted to bring some notes together. I only made two attempts. I kind of liked the second one. I added the visuals afterwards based on what the notes conjured up in me. Thanks a lot for listening :)
"Mémère dans les Orties"
What a fun song! So much humor in it. You may know or have known dysfunctional couples in your life, you know, people who can't help insulting one another, relating very negatively to one another and yet who stay together... it seems that it is the only way they know how to relate...it is often the case with people who grew up in a very negative environment in which love, affection, attention, and respect were absent, and so they don't know how to do better... it is their way of showing love, a special kind of love. I cannot say that I adhere to it, but I think it is worth singing about it. I chose to illustrate the song with empty shakers because these relationships are not fulfilling, they just leave you very empty.
Juliette's lyrics manage to turn a very serious subject into something funny. Humor makes what's unbearable more bearable. Merci à vous.
"Don't Worry Be Happy"
I would like to dedicate my version of this interesting song to music teachers and sound engineers who are going to have some fun with this one... Bear in mind that you are trespassing at your own risks...
Love from Paris,
"Body and Soul"
I was looking for a jazz song to sing the other day and I found this one which I had never heard before and which I thought was quite interesting. Stuart MacDonald's improvisation is just awesome. Thank you all.
"Il Mio Rifugio"
I watched a movie the other day on French TV, a funny French movie called "Enfin Veuve" and the female character, Michèle Laroque, was singing this pretty song at the beginning of the movie; I had heard it before, but ... well, you can figure out the rest... :)
"I Fall in Love Too Easily"
I was in my car at a red light the other day when I heard this song on a jazz station. I had never heard it before and I found it beautiful and interesting. I am glad I covered it because I realized when I read the comments made on my cover that a lot of people had never heard it either. Short, but beautiful, clear and sincere, a song that illustrates how the lack of love some of us may have suffered from can sometimes lead them to become dependent on other people's love in order to feel fulfilled. That is why learning how to love oneself is so important in life as dependency is never a good thing. We always have to aim at finding the right balance for everybody's sake.
"Agua de Beber"
I love Jobim and I love bossa nova and so I decided to give this song a try. Thank you very much for listening to this version.
Oh, I love this song. A wonderful melody and humorous lyrics. I just love these rhythms. I hope you'll enjoy my different version. Muito obrigado :)
" La Vida Es Un Carnaval"
I hope you will enjoy my cover of this very lively song and the visuals. The beat was very challenging...
"Un Gamin De Paris"
I like this French song a lot.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mrs Micheyl who wrote this song; she will soon celebrate her 93rd birthday.
Understanding each other's cultural specificities and differences is essential in this world if we want it to fare better.I could have asked Claude, my French friend, to play the accordion here for me, but I thought it would be nice to collaborate on this one with a musician who is not French precisely as I enjoy working with musicians and singers from different countries. Miroslav is from the Czech Republic and this is our first collaboration. I hope you will pay a visit to his channel.
Now let me explain a bit what a "Parisian titi" is: it is a French colloquialism meaning a smart, ressourceful, cheeky and mischievous child (the archetype of the titi parisien is the Gavroche character in Victor Hugo's novel "Les Misérables"). So to make it short the "titi" is cheeky, yes, but not vicious or malicious.
Thanks for listening!
Have a good week-end!!
This is my tribute to a wonderful artist who will be dearly missed. A very beautiful song about nonconformism.
THANK YOU very much, Mr Cocker. RIP.
"Bal Chez Temporel"
I have no specific anecdote to tell you about this pretty French song. The only thing I can say is that I really love the melody and the lyrics and I am happy Claude created this beautiful track for me. MERCI, Claude, et MERCI à vous, Monsieur Béart.
"Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy"
I don't remember how I ended up on this song the other day, but I really liked it. I had heard it before and I knew that covering it was not going to be a piece of cake... a bit of a tongue twister just like my cover of "I'm a woman" by Peggy Lee. And so all the reasons were there for me to feel like covering this song: a good upbeat melody, fun lyrics and a real vocal challenge. Thanks a lot for your kind support :)
"Blowin' In The Wind"
I must say I didn't have time to give you any clues about this song prior to uploading it because the idea came to me this morning...A very beautiful song, famous all over the world; a song that teaches us that men never seem to learn from their mistakes. Decades go by, centuries go by, generations after generations we are faced with the same kinds of problems. Mostly related to human nature of course. Quite normal in fact since we are all down here to learn... However some seem to go through life without ever questioning themselves and therefore without learning anything...; since they do not look at what's wrong with them they inevitably put the blame on others and use them as scapegoats. It has been like this ever since the world was world. Nothing new under the sun (or in the rain...). And yet, the answer lies within everyone of us. Deep within. But only those who look for it will find it, blowin' in the wind...
