“If I love you, what business is it of yours?”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I simply adore this great old classic. 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
|"Darling, Je Vous Aime Beaucoup" is a
song with words and music by
Anna Sosenko in
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."

|A man called a refrigerator repair service.
"My refrigerator isn't working."
"What kind is it?"
"It's a small one."
"Electric, gas or propane?"
"Ah! Then the problem is most likely vapor lock. You don't need a service call, just turn the refrigerator upside down for a few minutes to allow the lock to clear. Then put it back and all should be well."
A second call came, a few minutes later. "The least you could have done was to tell me to empty the fridge first!"
