Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Happy posthumous birthday to the Joe Dassin, U-M graduate and French-singing American musician who died 6 days before I was born. I don't know what the turnaround time is on souls, but I suppose it's possible that I am his reincarnation. I'm not sure if I've moved up or down the karmic ladder, though - I seem to have traded my singing ability in for not being addicted to drugs. Anyway, w00t to Joe for being born today. I shall share his music with you: two that might sound familiar, one that's probably his most famous and another that's just nice.

I'm still very proud for being able to sing the first verse plus the refrain of "Les Champs-Elysées", especially because of this one tonguebreaker part of the refrain. Well, at least it's not that easy for non-native speakers.

Can it really be a *happy* birthday if he's dead? It's kind of like saying "oh look, you were born today but you're dead now so let's remember what it was like to be a living person instead of a dead one."

wow! memories. Our french teacher played that for us in high school and I still can't believe I can sing along to it.
