5 On Friday - Happy Birthday Paris
Another week rolls around and 5 On Friday as created by Trav at Trav's Thoughts presents another musical interlude. To join in simply visit Trav, sign in and share your selections with the other participants.
On this day in history in 1951, the city of Paris became 2000 years old. In honor of it's 2060th birthday, a few songs set in, around or about Paris.
Short intermission here simply because you really need to see some of the scene from the show "Josephine" If you can take the time to see all the pages and art associated with the phenomenal Josephine Baker. The next song is simply my favorite Edith Piaf song: No Regrets
And of course the show, Jaques Brel is Alive and Well and Living In Paris
Which means you get Amanda McBroom who played off Broadway in Alive and Well, singing Jaques Brel's "Carousel" and it's tribute (?) to modern life:
With a bonus because even Jimmy Buffett had something to say about the City of Lights
