Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup

If I love you, what business is it of yours?”

 - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(28 Aug 1749 – 22 Mar 1832)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   I simple adore this great old classic.  Unfortunately I'm unable to find a nice, mellow midi file that I like - not really - so just try the bonus video to hear Nat's beautiful voice:

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNzxH3zRU_I - Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup - Nat King Cole, 1954


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darling,_Je_Vous_Aime_Beaucoup:

"Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup" is a popular song with words and music by Anna Sosenko in 1935.

It was introduced in the film Love and Hisses by Hildegarde and charted by Hildegarde at # 21 in 1943.

The best-selling version of the song was recorded by Nat King Cole in 1954 which reached a peak Billboard position # 7 in 1955.

Deep River Boys with orchestra recorded the song in Oslo on August 24, 1956. It was released on the extended play Hello young lovers (HMV 7EGN 12). The stranger on the balcony in Bob Dylan's and Jacques Levy's song "Black Diamond Bay" from the 1976 album "Desire" says “My darling, je vous aime beaucoup” to the female character.

The deliberately bad French in the title (and used as a refrain along with "Wish my French were good enough") means "Darling, I love you a lot."

Although "Je vous aime" is grammatically correct, "I love you" in French is generally said "Je t'aime," incorporating the familiar address "te" rather than the formal (or polite) address "vous."

"Je ne sais pas" in the song means "I don't know." "Compris" (or "compree" as it is sometimes phonetically spelled in printed lyrics) means "understood." "Toujours" means "always." "Chérie" means "dear." "Très très fort" means "very very strong."


PRAYER REQUEST:

    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 02/03/13, 3:00 PM:

Carol
Ask the school friends to pray that I can make it through the next few weeks. I am about to have the surgery on my stomach bypass - I can't remember the name it's called - where they clamp your stomach to help you lose weight. Starting Mon., Feb 4th I go to drinking liquids. The surgery is scheduled for Feb. 12th, and it's liquids for a couple weeks after the surgery. I just need the strength to get through the liquid days, then I think it might be soft foods till the healing is over. Anyone out there who has been through this, please let me know what I am faced with. Hopefully I can get off some of my medicines that I am on and lose weight.

   WOWZERS-YOWZERS! We gotcha covered, Glenn - best wishes!

HEALTH UPDATE:

RE:   Sarah Groshong (61) of VA - 02/03/13, 3:27 PM:

"It is three o'clock, Super Bowl Sunday..... pass this on to her Typhoon friends....Please just hope for peace for our fun-loving, caring Sarah. Her future is now in the hands of someone, I suppose as it has been actually all along, other than the specialists who have so lovingly cared for her. She has struggled long and hard. 'They' say it has been unreal how long she has maintained life with this weakened condition....."

Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
Je ne sais pas what to do
You know you've completely
Stolen my heart

Morning, noon and night-time too
Toujours, wondering what to do
That's the way I've felt
Right from the start

Ah, Cheri!
My love for you is très, très fort
Wish my French were good enough
I'd tell you so much more

But I hope that you compris
All the things you mean to me
Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
I love you, yes I do

Wish my French were good enough
I'd tell you so much more

But I hope that you compris
All the things you mean to me
Darling, je vous aime beaucoup
I love you, yes I do

(Darling, je vous aime beaucoup)
I love you, yes I do
