When White Wine Heals ...

Star: Vindemiatrix (Virgo Constellation)
Song: Fanny Ardent et Moi * Vincent Delerm

Weeeee... The festival is over!

That is all I can say at the current moment. Since it was a festival for French films (or films coming from French-speaking countries), I thought I'd keep up with the French theme going on. Here are some French songs that I am listening to. Three fun songs (by Manu Chao, Vincent Delerm and Coralie Clément) and two serious ones (by Barbara and Nina Simone's wonderful cover of Jacques Brel's Ne Me Quitte Pas).

We drank too much wine in the last couple of days. I am glad this event is over. Took much of my energy. So Wine it is. Hence the star for this post, Vindemiatrix (Epsilon Virginis), a third magnitude star in the right wing of the Virgo constellation. The name stands for 'Wine Harverstress,' since apparently the rising of this star in the morning signaled the time of the grape harvest.

This setlist is technically for the Month of March, because I didn't have time to do it the past month.

01. Ma Plus Belle Histoire d'Amour (Barbara) – from the album Best Of [1992]

"Qu'importe ce qu'on peut en dire,
Je suis venue pour vous dire,
Ma plus belle histoire d'amour,
c'est vous..."

02. Fanny Ardent et Moi (Vincent Delerm) – from the album Vincent Delerm [2002]

"Elle est toujours toute noire et blanche
Elle ne dit plus vivement dimanche
Depuis que je la traîne chez mes parents
Tous les week-end Fanny Ardant"

03. Ne Me Quitte Pas (Nina Simone) – from the album [2006]

"Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu'un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s'épousent-ils pas"

04. Je Ne T'aime Plus (Manu Chao) - from the album Clandestino [1998]

"Parfois J'aimerais mourir
Pour ne plus rien avoir
Parfois J'aimerais mourir
Pour plus jamais te voir"

05. L'Ombre et la Lumière (Coralie Clément) – from the album Salle des Pas Perdus [2001]

"On oublie les comptes et les débits
Les quoi, les où, les quand

Oh Manuch! You should try Manu Chao. They do sing majorly in Spanish, and it's awesome. You will love this music. Try songs like Clandestino, Me Gustas Tu and King of the Bongo.
