Stumbled across this on Youtube today and it just made me smile - so full of soulful joy! I've never properly listened to any french music(or musicians)so this was a lovely lovely surprise.
Wiki'd Gilbert Becaud and discovered that he was a prolific French singer and song writer - where on earth has he been my whole life? Don't you just love it though, when chance and random fate bring you to places where unexpected flowers bloom? A new beautiful song - just one listen and (oh I must use a Neruda line!) it does to me what Spring does with the cherry trees.
