Today’s Birthday: Hector Berlioz (1803)


Today’s Birthday:
Hector Berlioz (1803)

Berlioz was a French Romantic composer. He studied music in Paris against his parents’ wishes, and his first great score, Symphonie fantastique, became a landmark of the Romantic era. An impassioned and contentious critic, he was constantly at war with the musical establishment. Although he was the most compelling French musical figure of his time, his distinctive compositional style kept almost all his music out of the repertory until the mid-20th century. What are his most famous works? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

French

Les feuilles mortes

Oh ! je voudrais tant que tu te souviennes
Des jours heureux où nous étions amis.
En ce temps-là la vie était plus belle,
Et le soleil plus brûlant qu’aujourd’hui.
Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle.
Tu vois, je n’ai pas oublié…
Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle,
Les souvenirs et les regrets aussi
Et le vent du nord les emporte
Dans la nuit froide de l’oubli.
Tu vois, je n’ai pas oublié
La chanson que tu me chantais.
Refrain :
C’est une chanson qui nous ressemble.
Toi, tu m’aimais et je t’aimais
Et nous vivions tous les deux ensemble,
Toi qui m’aimais, moi qui t’aimais.
Mais la vie sépare ceux qui s’aiment,
Tout doucement, sans faire de bruit
Et la mer efface sur le sable
les pas des amants désunis.

Dead leaves

Versions: #1#2
Oh, I wish you’d remember.
Happy days when we were friends.
In those days life was better,
And the sun is hotter than today.
Dead leaves are picked up by the shovel.
You see, I haven’t forgotten…
Dead leaves are picked up by the shovel,
Memories and regrets too
And the north wind carries them away
In the cold night of oblivion.
See, I haven’t forgotten
The song you used to sing me.
Chorus :
It’s a song that looks like us.
You loved me and I loved you
And we both lived together,
You who loved me, I who loved you.
But life separates those who love each other,
Slowly, quietly and quietly
And the sea erases on the sand
the footsteps of broken lovers

Watch “Edith Piaf – Non, Je ne regrette rien” on YouTube



  • Non, rien de rien
    No, nothing of nothing
    Non, je ne regrette rien
    No, I don’t feel sorry
    About nothing
    Ni le bien qu’on m’a fait
    Not the good things people have done to me
    Ni le mal tout ça m’est bien égal
    Not the bad things, it’s all the same to me
    Non, rien de rien
    No, nothing of nothing
    Non, Je ne regrette rien
    No, I don’t feel sorry
    About nothing
    C’est payé, balayé, oublié
    It’s paid for, removed, forgotten
    Je me fous do passé
    I’m happy of the past
    Avec mes souvenirs
    With my memories
    J’ai allumé le feu
    I lit up the fire
    Mes chagrins, mes plaisirs
    My troubles, my pleasures
    Je n’ai plus besoin d’eux
    I don’t need them anymore
    Balayées les amours
    Broomed away my love stories
    Et tous leurs trémolos
    And all their tremble
    Balayés pour toujours
    Broomed away for always
    Je repars à zéro
    I start again from zero
    Non, rien de rien
    No, nothing of nothing
    Non, je ne regrette rien
    No, I don’t feel sorry
    About nothing
    Ni le bien qu’on m’a fait
    Not the good things people have done to me
    Ni le mal tout ça m’est bien égal
    Not the bad things, it’s all the same to me
    Non, rien de rien
    No, nothing of nothing
    Non, je ne regrette rien
    No, I don’t feel sorry
    About nothing
    Car ma vie, car mes joies
    Because my life, my joys
    Aujourd’hui, ça commence avec toi
    Today, they begin with you

Ma solitude

Pour avoir si souvent dormi
Avec ma solitude
Je m’en suis faite presque une amie
Une douce habitude
Elle ne me quitte pas d’un pas
Fidèle comme une ombre
Elle m’a suivi çà et là
Aux quatres coins du monde
Non, je ne suis jamais seul
Avec ma solitude
Quand elle est au creux de mon lit
Elle prend toute la place
Et nous passons de longues nuits
Tous les deux face à face
Je ne sais vraiment pas jusqu’où
Ira cette complice
Faudra-t-il que j’y prenne goût
Ou, que je réagisse ?
Non, je ne suis jamais seul
Avec ma solitude
Par elle, j’ai autant appris
Que j’ai versé de larmes
Si parfois je la répudie
Jamais elle ne désarme
Et, si je préférais l’amour
D’une autre courtisane
Elle sera à mon dernier jour
Ma dernière compagne
Non, je ne suis jamais seul
Avec ma solitude
Non, je ne suis jamais seul
Avec ma solitude

My loneliness

Versions: #1#2#3
Because of having slept so much
with my loneliness
I almost made it my friend
a sweet custom
She doesn’t deviates from my side
Faithful like a shadow
She followed me here and there
at the four corners of the world
No I’m never alone
with my loneliness
When she’s in the middle of my bed
She takes all the place
And we spend long nights together
Both of us, face to face
I really don’t know how far
this accomplice will go
Will i have to take a fancy on it
Or will I have to react?
No I’m never alone
with my loneliness
Because of her, I learned as much
as I cried tears
If sometimes I deny her
She never desarms me
And If I would prefer love
from another courtisane
She will be on my last day,
My last companion
No I’m never alone
with my loneliness
No I’m never alone
with my loneliness
