Edith Piaf - “La Foule”
La Foule has got to be one of my top three favorite songs of all time. The beautiful but frenzied Peruvian waltz coupled with Piaf’s impassioned singing is just perfect. Meaning “The Crowd” in French, La Foule tells the story of two lovers that lock eyes in the midst of a bustling street and instantly fall in love. Sadly, the push and pull of the crowd separates the pair, and they never find each other again. Uplifting, right? But even though the lyrics tell a heartbreaking story, the music will make you want to jump up and dance with next person you see. Definitely one of Edith Piaf’s greatest songs of all time.
See you next Wednesday!
