Chanson de Lundi


Since the last days were time to rethink the past year, make plans for the future, to dream and to wish, I decided that an appropriate choice for the Chanson de Lundi today was one of the most beautiful songs of the chanson française, one that talks about the past and the future, the losses and gains, the regrets and victories.

Yes, I’m talking about Non, je ne regrette rien.

And, since after I watched the movie La vie en rose, I can’t help to listen to this song without remembering the powerful scene when Édith Piaf is first introduced to this piece by its composer, I think it’s more than fair to post here this bit of the movie that has such splendorous and emotional acting by Marion Cotillard.
