    I was bound to cover this wonderful song, « L’Âme des Poètes » (The Poets’ Soul), a song by French singer and songwriter Charles Trenet (1951), featured in Bouquet de Joie, a movie by French film maker Maurice Cam. The song is an evocation of the legacy left by great poets through their works. It has been covered by many French artists, such as Jean Sablon, Yvette Giraud, Yves Montand, Juliette Greco, Fabienne Thibeault or Daniel Guichard. Louis Charles Auguste Claude Trenet, known as Charles Trenet (1913-2001) was most famous for his recordings from the late 1930s until the mid-1950s, though his career continued through the 1990s. In an era in which it was unusual for a singer to write their own material, Trenet wrote prolifically and declined to record any but his own songs. His best known songs include "Boum!", "La Mer", "Y'a d'la joie", "Que reste-t-il de nos amours?", "Ménilmontant" and "Douce France". His catalogue of songs is enormous, numbering close to a thousand. I only found a very fast karaoke track on Youtube... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrPwVmY9NEE and as I did not want to sing « L’Âme des Poètes » so hastily, I slowed it down with Audacity (and that’s a first for me!). However, musically speaking, I think the barrel organ/honky tonk piano approach in this instrumental version goes well with the lyrics. So I had to adapt not only my vocals, but also my interpretation to this backing track which is very different from the original. I hope that Charles Trenet’s fans – and I am one of those, believe me – will forgive me if this version is very different from what they might have expected. Thank you for listening. TRANSLATION The Poets’ Soul Long, long, long After the poets have disappeared Their songs flow still through the streets. The crowd sings them, a little distracted, Unaware of the author’s name, Not knowing for whom his heart beat. Sometimes one changes a word, a phrase, And when one has run out of ideas One goes “la la la, la la lay, La la la, la la lay.” Long, long, long After the poets have disappeared Their songs still flow through the streets. One day, perhaps, long after me, One day someone will sing This song to lull a pain Or some happy fate. It may make an old beggar live Or a child sleep. Or somewhere, beside the water, in springtime It will turn on a phonograph. Long, long, long After the poets have disappeared Their light spirits still flow through the streets. Their light spirits, which are their songs, That make us gay, that make us sad, Girls and boys, Bourgeois, artists, And vagabonds. http://blogs.cornell.edu/eng2750/2010/08/30/charles-trenet-lame-des-poetes/

            Music video for the debut single from Whinnie Williams. I worked with a great (but small) crew on this video to make it come to life. Shot on the Canon C300 with the Arri Alura 18-80, we made use of the FloatCam DollyCrane HD to get some of the shots. Regarding the look and feel I wanted to compliment the French sound with an aesthetic that references French new wave cinema (well, as much as possible on the budget I had to work with). I developed the plot in collaboration with Whinnie Williams, then went on to write a screen play for it. If you keep your fingers crossed the story will be continued. Credits: DOP: Adam Scarth

              Here is my cover of a very pretty song by Mouloudji, a French singer I liked a lot. The title of the song is « Un Jour Tu verras » (One day you will see) ; it was released in 1954. I am accompanied on guitar by Alex (aka hyperboreal :https://www.youtube.com/user/hyperboreal). Marcel André Mouloudji (1922-1994) was a French singer-songwriter, painter and actor.

PAROLES : Un jour tu verras On se rencontrera Quelque part, n´importe où Guidés par le hasard Nous nous regarderons Et nous nous sourirons Et la main dans la main Par les rues nous irons Le temps passe si vite Le soir cachera bien Nos cœurs, ces deux voleurs, Qui gardent leur bonheur Puis nous arriverons Sur une place grise Où les pavés seront doux A nos âmes grises Il y aura un bal Très pauvre et très banal Sous un ciel plein de brume Et de mélancolie Un aveugle jouera D´l´orgue de Barbarie Cet air pour nous sera Le plus beau, le plus joli Puis je t´inviterai Ta taille je prendrai Nous danserons tranquilles Loin des bruits de la ville Nous danserons l´amour Les yeux au fond des yeux Vers une fin du monde Vers une nuit profonde Un jour tu verras On se rencontrera Quelque part, n´importe où Guidés par le hasard Nous nous regarderons Et nous nous sourirons Et la main dans la main Par les rues nous irons TRANSLATION : One day you will see We will meet Somewhere, anywhere Guided by chance We will look at each other And we will smile And hand in hand We will stroll down the streets Time passes by so quickly The evening will hide Our hearts, these two thieves Who keep their happiness for themselves Then we will get To a grey square Where the cobble stones will be soft To our grey souls There will be a ball, Very poor and very commonplace, Under a sky full of mist And melancholy A blind will play On the barrel organ This tune for us will be The most beautiful, the prettiest Then I will invite you I will take you by the waist We will dance quietly Far from the noises of the city We will dance a love dance Eyes in eyes Until the world ends In the depth of the night One day you will see We will meet Somewhere, anywhere Guided by chance We will look at each other And we will smile And hand in hand We will stroll down the streets
