Paris video

I haven’t posted videos in a while, so thought I would throw up some that I liked.

A number of years ago we spent a month in France. I really liked Paris, and the whole country, and wish that I was able to live there. I thought it an exciting vibrant place, full of nice people, good museums, and great food. Recently Rob posted a video by Janis Ian, a singer I remember from a long time ago, that fit my mood:


When we were driving around France most of the music was by French singers, but once in a while they would have something in English. We heard one very often, ‘Sex Bomb’, but I never was able to understand the announcers when they said who the singer was. We finally made it back to Paris and I caught French MTV which listed the singers in subtitles. I was surprised to find this was by someone else I remembered from years ago.


He still comes to Vegas periodically, as does someone from the same period: Engelbert Humperdink. To keep the 70’s alive, here is another singer from back then I haven’t heard in a while, on one of my favorite shows, Sesame Street.

Ah. Back when Sesame Street was entertaining! Can't imagine a song like that would be allowed to be aired these days. :)

And the horse was one of my fave characters too.

Memories!

Ahh Sesame Street.

It's been awhile since we've watched it.

Glad to have stirred your Parisian memories.

A few years back Tom Jones did a Christmas single with Cerys Matthews (formerly of Catatonia, and a well-known Welsh pop star). You might enjoy it:
