The German Wave of the '60s was heavily influenced by the American Big Bands of the '30s and '40s, as can easily be seen in its styles and song choices, easy listening being basically a continuation of the Big Band Era, just as Eurodance was basically a continuation of disco, but some, like Kaempfert, James Last (Hans Last), and Kai Warner (Werner Last, his brother), later diversified into more contemporary styles, including disco. Most were also composers, arrangers, and producers. One, Werner Muller, did several recordings with France Gall. At least 3 were drafted into the German armed forces in WW2, captured by the Allies, and put into POW camps in Denmark or Holland. They were Kaempfert, Ladi Geissler, and Horst Wende. We see jazz guitarist Geissler at the beginning of the video but hear him and his famous and much-imitated knack guitar throughout.

Eddy Barclay (Edouard Ruault) was one of the most prominent record company owners in France, but was also a  record producer, jazz pianist, band leader, film composer, arranger, magazine publisher (Jazz Magazine, which he co-founded in '54), night club owner (Barclay's Club or The Barclay, opened in '47),  bon vivant, and jet setter.  He founded Blue Star in '49, Riviera in '54, and in the same year, Disques Barclay, uniting Blue Star, Riviera, and the French edition of Mercury, for which he was distributor since '51. He was known as 'l'empereur du microsillon.' He produced many of the biggest names in French song: Charles Aznavour, Charles Trenet, Hughes Aufray, BB, Jacques Brel, Eddy Constantine, Eddy Mitchell,  Dalida, Léo Ferré, Juliette Greco, Françoise Hardy, Michel Delpech, Michel Sardou, Mireille Mathieu.  He recruited musical luminaries Quincy Jones (who had settled in Paris from '57-'61), Raymond Lefebvre, and Michel Legand as arrangers. He is also known for his lavish celebrity parties in St. Tropez. Barclay Records also handled many of the  biggest names in  Québec song: Claude Dubois, Claude Léveillé, Renée Claude, Charlebois, Diane Dufresne, Jean-Pierre Ferland, Isabelle Pierre.

Les Amants de Paris was introduced in 1948 by Edith Piaf, with music by Léo Ferré and Eddy Marnay and lyric by Léo Ferré.

This is a flash mob at the Carrefour Laval, Quebec's largest shopping center, which opened in '74, is only a few miles from where I live, and where I once went. The song is the great Marry You by Bruno Mars. But watch what happens at the end. (The 2nd video is  a short version, where they do close-ups).

This rousing, lively song was originally Il topolino blu (The little blue mouse), written by Pace, Panzieri, and Pilade. 'Blu' is borrowed from the French 'bleu', which was borrowed from the Frankish 'blau'. I suspect the Hawaiian 'polu' for blue was borrowed from English. It gets around. She also did the Italian version. A torpedo was an antique car made from 1908 to '35.

The French lyric was by her father Robert, who was a prominent lyricist, writing for many French singing stars, including Edith Piaf. It's rather odd but humourous, about a car which plants itself in front of her door once summer returns and makes everything gay. She doesn't know what 'bon vent' (good wind, which can probably be translated as 'good fortune') brings it and honks day and night to go off with her, it's 'une explosion de joie', which doesn't need translating. 'Moi, j'en voie de toutes les couleurs' (literally, Me, I see all colours) is not so easy to translate, but 'going thru a lot' is a good way of putting it. The car has a bar, flowers, TV, a motorcycle, and airplanes, and puts fish (poisson), shrimp (crevettes), and sea water (eau de mer) in its tank, but not  even one pickle (cornichon). Going uphill, if it heats up, it takes Typhoon syrup (sirop Typhon), which seems to be some kind of elixir and is the title of a song by fellow French singer Richard Anthony, also in '69, a remake of a very familiar song (possibly an English pub song, the title of which I can't remember) or vice versa. Sometimes people she doesn't know say, or she says to them, 'See you, how are you', but their (hers and the car's) heart doesn't care, it's not important, cause it's vacation time.

The Italian lyric says that all roads take you to the sea, and you want to follow them, but this one doesn't, and I tell you this because the arrows hit the heart, but yours doesn't. It turns and turns around your love and then goes away. All pearls are found in the sea, but not yours.  You guess who you are for it, a little blue mouse, and therefore never deceive yourself. It wants to play with you, it wants to dream with you. It lets you climb. But it never reveals itself.

This is at Expo in Montréal, in the series Donald Lautrec Chaud, a play on the anglicism 'show' (although the uploader says it's Coup de soleil), hosted by singer and actor Donald Lautrec, which I watched regularly, but remember it from '70. (Note added: I looked it up, and it's the same show; it was called 1st Coup de soleil and then Donald Lautrec chaud, ran from '69-'71, and was on Radio-Canada (Channel 2, the French CBC).

This is the same show and the same year. The song was composed by Jean-Pierre Bourtayre and penned by the lyricist duo Rivat-Thomas. The lyric is apparently about a bird who is the wife of Pablo de Rossignol, so it might be a robin as that's what 'rossignol' means. It sings on the very small man's balcony and comes and goes and flies in his house. It says if I liked you 20 minutes, don't ask more of me, don't hold me here. It goes on to say, ''Very small man, your heart I took, yet I like better to whistle on the cherry trees. Very small man, a violin tune, sing my 4 seasons, and that's my life. And you, you have 4 houses, a donkey, and a cart. You would like to lock me up and keep me for yourself. Seeking riches, do you have much joy? What are you doing with your life?''

Originally done in 1928 for the film by the same title by Dolores Costello, music by Milton Ager and Dan Dougherty, this ragtime classic was done by Ruth Edding, Ted Lewis, Whispering Jack Smith, Nat Shilket and his Victor Orch., Ben Bernie, the Golden Gate Orch., Dan Ritchie, Arthur Briggs, the Manhattan Melody Makers, and Ted Gott and his Rose Room Orch., all in '29, but also by Earl Hines, Jack Hylton, Allen Selby, Knuckes O'Toole (Billy Rowland), Crazy Otto (Fritz Schultz-Reichel)(in '55), Gus Arnheim, and recently by Rod McKuen and Diana Krall. There was also a later '60s version, which was when I first heard it and which was probably the best, but I don't remembr the name of the orchestra or chorus.

Not only a great bandleader, musician, arranger, and producer, James Last was also a great composer.

A great rendition of a Sons of the Pioneers song, along with Don Winters and Bobby Sykes. I have no idea what this TV show is or the year.

Les Paul (Lester Polfuss), American magician of the guitar, inventor, and composer of German descent, was one of the pioneers of the solid-body electric guitar. He was heavily influenced by the famous Django Rhinehart. Although Paul was known mostly for jazz and popular music, he had an early career in country. He is credited with many recording innovations. Although he was not the first to use some of the techniques, thru his early experiments he was the first to popularize overdubbing (sound on sound), delay effects (such as flanging, chorus effect, and reverberation), phasing effects, and multi-track recording. He also used close-miking, equalization, and vibrato. In 1952, he invented the flange effect, where a sound phases in and out in harmonic tone. The first example of this can be heard in his Mammy's Boogey. He also composed many songs, including the gospel song Don't You Hear Dem Bells and Mammy's Boogey.

His inventiveness carried over into his playing style, producing licks, trills, chording sequences, fretting techniques, and timing, which set him apart from his contemporaries and inspired many future guitarists, such as the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

By 1961, the Les Paul guitar was out of production, but as pop music changed in the '60s, it owed much of its studio sophistication to advances pioneered by Paul.

He had also teamed up with his super-singer wife Mary Ford (Colleen Summers) in 1950. They had 13 consecutive hits in the '50s that have sold over 10 million copies. Their first multi-track hit, a remake of "How High the Moon," was released in early 1951, reached No. 1, and went on to sell 1.5 million copies. Paul made a chorus of Ford's voice and filled every pause with his refined country-jazz licks. His studio wizardry included 12 overdubs. No one had ever heard anything like this before. It was the sound of the future.

The party-time, good-cheer rendition of Chris Montez masterfully done  in French was indicative of the spirit of much of the Super '60s, like Fun, Fun, Fun by the Beach Boys, James Last's Non-Stop Dancing, Do You, Do You St. Tropez, and what was later called sunshine pop, called les années d'insouciance (the carefree years) in France. sunny

Hey guys. What's going on? Abuse report in my Admin panel box? Seriously? Over music? And here I thought this was going to be another Dan faux pas involving air drops of pigs & hams over muslim territory or something!

Easy does it guys. Back to music...

SJ Tucker's "Sorrow's Song (Child of Dying Stars)


Did you know that Drui & Bandrui scholars once wore a feathered cloak (like a uniform).
Where is cinnamon? hint.
What does the firebird represent?
What is the relationship between the Drui & the Brahman?

Have celts ever traveled to the ends of worlds and back?
What is murias? or gorias? and the other two?

Which 4th century story at Corpus of Electronic Texts, tells of the great generation ships returning to Eireann out of the western skies to land with their precious cargo? That a oath was taken by each to guard and guide human potential?

Can reference to the human potential concept be found among writings by colonial American members of Nature's Crowd?

Can reference to the human potential concept be found in the Declaration of Causes 1775 carried by George Washington in his saddle bags to Philadelphia and the Continental Congress?

Ah, what truths are hidden in our songs? Even the strangest ones?

Ok all sorted!

And to smooth over our formerly rough edges (we'll blame it on the Gods and the Drink)....I dedicate a classic filk song by Leslie Fish:
