I just wanted to say that all songs on the Amelie soundtrack are composed by Yann Tiersen.  Smiley

too bad I saw this thread so late.

There's a series of compilation CDs called Ultra Chicks put out by this guy who runs a record shop in Montreal.  It's mostly 60s singers from France, but there are other European countries included as well as some Canadian.  It's all female, in case you couldn't figure it out by the title.  They are fabulous!  I believe there are 6 volumes of it. 

I also recommend the singer Pussycat (her CD is on Magic Records), a wonderful 60s French teen singer and drummer in a band whose name translates to The Little Mice!  And Jacqueline Taeib (sp??).  And, of course, France Gall and Francoise Hardy.

      Isn't Pink Martini great?  Hard to believe they're from Portland.  If your friend loves her cd so much that she wants a quick sequel, Williams Sonoma has a dinner music series that includes a cd called "Last Time I Saw Paris."  (Hmm...last time I saw Paris, she was naked and badly lit, but I digress.)  The playlist:

Azure-te - Nat King Cole
Under Paris Skies - Karyn Allison
I Love Paris - Lena Horne
C'est Magnifique - Ella Fitzgerald
April in Paris - Doris Day
Le Jazz et La Java - Yves Montand
Autour De Minuit - Les Nubians
La Nage Indienne - Etienne Daho
Un Tour de Manege - Henri Salvador
La Vie en Rose - Madeline Peyroux (have you heard her yet?  Tiny French girl who sounds JUST like Billie Holliday!)
The Last Time I Saw Paris - Dean Martin

Well, it looks like I'm a bit late to add my two cents for the first CD but yes, if you'd ever like to make a sequel...

I recommend Madeleine Peyroux as well, but the group no one has said anything about yet is Paris Combo.  They're a French jazz band, and while I think they may have a couple of songs in English the vast majority are in French.

This is a great thread! I'm sorry I saw it so late, songs to be French to is my specialty ( Wink) but you all made excellent suggestions!

AndreaLH, I was just wondering which record shop you're referring to?

Dawn, I think it may have been Le Pick Up, but I'm not sure.  It may not even be around anymore, but I remember the guy's name was Denis.  We went to one record store in July 04 that had lots of ye ye singles (out of our price range, though), but I don't recall the name of the street. .  .Montmarte, perhaps?  I've got a fever right now so my memory is a little fuzzy, sorry!

In Quebec, they sing another song to someone on their birthday instead of Happy Birthday. It's called "C'est a ton tour" .... perhaps you can find a download? A modified version of the chorus is often sung to celebrate a person, for example at their birthday:

Mon cher ami (or Ma chère amie), c'est à ton tour
De te laisser parler d'amour.

Le temps que l'on prend pour dire "je t'aime",
C'est le seul qui reste au bout de nos jours.
Les voeux que l'on fait, les fleurs que l'on sème,
Chacun les récolte en soi-même
Aux beaux jardins du temps qui court.

Gens du pays, c'est votre tour
De vous laisser parler d'amour.
Gens du pays, c'est votre tour
De vous laisser parler d'amour.

Le temps de s'aimer, le jour de le dire,
Fond comme la neige aux doigts du printemps.
Fêtons de nos joies, fêtons de nos rires
Ces yeux où nos regards se mirent...
C'est demain que j'avais vingt ans.

Gens du pays, c'est votre tour
De vous laisser parler d'amour.
Gens du pays, c'est votre tour
De vous laisser parler d'amour.

Le ruisseau des jours aujourd'hui s'arrête
Et forme un étang où chacun peut voir
Comme en un miroir l'amour qu'il reflète
Pour ces coeurs à qui je souhaite
Le temps de vivre nos espoirs.

Gens du pays, c'est votre tour
De vous laisser parler d'amour.
Gens du pays, c'est votre tour
De vous laisser parler d'amour.

2 Rough Translation into English


The time we take to say, "I love you"
Is all that remains at the end of our days
The vows we make, the flowers we sow,
We all gather them within ourselves
In the beautiful gardens of flowing time.

People of the country, this is your turn
To let yourselves speak of love.
People of the country, this is your turn
To let yourselves speak of love.

The time to love one another, the day to say it,
Melts as the snow touched by the fingers of springtime.
Let's celebrate our joys, let's celebrate our laughter
These eyes that gazed at one another...
Tomorrow I was twenty years old.

People of the country, this is your turn
To let yourselves speak of love.
People of the country, this is your turn
To let yourselves speak of love.

The rushing stream of days stops today
And forms a pond where each can see,
As if in a mirror, the love it reflects
For those hearts for which I wish
The time to live our hopes.

People of the country, this is your turn
To let yourselves speak of love.
People of the country, this is your turn
To let yourselves speak of love.
