From an early 50’s french movie of the same name which I haven’t seen yet. In the repertoire of all the great chansonniers and cantatrices. Simply beautiful. Also included in the new ZAZ album „Paris“, which is currently my favorite record.
Flowing musette tempo, has more of a 6/8 feel than a straight 3/4 waltz. You need to keep the accompanying arpeggios in the background, since the melody quite often uses the lower strings. Tabbed with the help of a piano score. Not so simple in the verses to maintain some long tied notes.
