Quand le Soleil

One side of my family has very good musicians. My godmother sang a fabulous rendition of this with Dad's cousin, my godfather,  playing fiddle and her son playing guitar.  It was my request at every family party.

Fabulous! I like the layers of thin cloud. I can imagine that the song brings back happy memories over the years.
Mary MacADNski: There are a generation of cousins and friends I miss when I think of it. The song came out in 1964.
At A&M Records, Starr recorded a song called "The French Song" that was produced by Herb Alpert.[2] It was recorded in both French and English. In 1964, at a time when The Beatles dominated the music charts, "The French Song" was an international success that made Starr the first Canadian artist to have a record sell over a million copies.[3] The popularity of the song led to a tour of the United States and appearing on the Louisiana Hayride radio show and on Chicago radio station WLS (AM) popular National Barn Dance. Starr also sang on American television musical variety shows such as Shindig! and Hullabaloo, followed by tours of Pacific Rim countries, Australia, South Africa, and across Europe where she became a particular favorite in the Netherlands. Selling sold over one million copies, it was awarded a gold disc.[

Great picture.

My late mother in law was a very fine pianist and Ange's uncle played the violin.
Mary MacADNski: We have music in every generation and my son is a wonderful sax player.
Terrific sunset shot and a fine tune on the video, shame I don't speak French.
Mary MacADNski: The song is completely bilingual;
