A Canal Pride 2012 Finale: Two French Chansons

To close out the Canal Pride weekend, here are a couple of French chansons. First, a short playlist with three very different renditions of “Il n’y a pas d’amour heureux” (the poem by Louis Aragon was set to music by Georges Brassens in 1953), by Jeanne Moreau, Youssou N’Dour, and the band Wermut.

And now the soundtrack from François Ozon’s film 8 Femmes in which Firmine Richard sings “Pour ne pas vivre seul” (one of Dalida’s standards).
