France Culture song by French pop singer Arnaud Fleurent-Didier calls into question the new generations’ lack of interest in the French culture and all its political, cultural, philosophical and literature references.
In his song, Arnaud Fleurent-Didier regrets he was never told about foreign languages, books, politics, religions, the French cinema, Marx and Tocqueville, Proust, May 68, how to do with the girls and the dead, the truth about the French Resistance and the Gestapo….
France Culture was translated in many languages and Arnaud Fleurent-Didier participated in the only high quality music broadcast Taratata in France in 2009.
French songwriter Georges Moustaki wrote Milord, the most popular song for Edith Piaf. Milord is a polite way to address traveling Englishmen in France, especially in Brittany and Normandy.
Edith piaf is considered as the greatest French singer. Her tragic life added to her legend as she started singing in the streets of Paris in the 30s and got discovered in 1935 by Louis Leplee, the owner of a Parisian nightclub.
Nicknamed “môme Piaf” (little sparrow) as she was a very small woman, Edith Piaf became very popular not only in France, but also in the world. Her tragic car accident in the 50s resulted in a lifelong addiction to morphine, one year after her true love boxer Marcel Cerdan had died in a tragic accident.
She died of cancer in 1963 and was buried in Père Lachaise Cemeteray in Paris.
« La Vie en Rose, » « Hymne à L’Amour, » « Les Trois Cloches, » and « Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien » are her most famous songs.
