La Pluie



Something bright and cheerful for a change, this sweet little song will have you singing along with happiness and a smile on your face once you have listened to the music and looked at the great images on the video.
The song 'La Pluie' or 'The Rain' is sung by French songstress Zaz (Isabelle Geffroy), I do hope you enjoy it.
I do apologise as I do not have an English translation of the lyrics, I did search on the Net but there seems to be many contradictions in the translations ... maybe someone out there could help me out! Please ... ♥

Le ciel est gris la pluie s'invite comme par surprise
elle est chez nous et comme un rite qui nous enlise
les parapluies s'ouvrent en cadence
comme une danse,
les gouttes tombent en abondance
sur douce France.

Tombe tombe tombe la pluie
en ce jour de dimanche de décembre
à l'ombre des parapluies
les passants se pressent pressent pressent sans attendre

On l'aime parfois elle hausse la voix elle nous bouscule
elle ne donne plus de ses nouvelles en canicule
puis elle revient comme un besoin par affection
et elle nous chante sa grande chanson
l'inondation

Tombe tombe tombe la pluie
en ce jour de dimanche de décembre,
à l'ombre des parapluies
les passants se pressent, pressent, pressent sans attendre

Tombe tombe tombe la pluie
en ce jour de dimanche de décembre
à l'ombre des parapluies
les passants se pressent pressent pressent sans attendre

et tombe et tombe et tombe, tombe
et tombe et tombe et tombe...

I don't think the Google Translator on this blog will give an accurate translation but if you aren't a French speaker it will give you some idea of the context of the song.

I loved this one. the music and the imagery. very nice. still has a bit of wistfulness to it. I dont need to translate - thats what the voices and pictures are for!

I just played this tune backwards, and it encouraged me to be rude, avoid bathing and take up chain-smoking.

Thank you dear chickory , I love this song too and I needed to cheer myself up... the images are beautiful, I love looking at the rain and raindrops, the little kitty looking through the window and the scene from 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'.
I have been singing it in French myself and it makes me feel happier.

xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Oh Pugsley my sweet, I don't believe you, the song played backwards would not encourage you to take up all of these bad habits...well I certainly hope not.:)

xoxoxo ♡

Yes Foamy dear, I love the song and the images. Did you see the cute little kitty looking through the window and the one in the arms of Audrey Hepburn, so beautiful?
I am singing it in French, I have just picked up the words from listening to it so many times, no complaints so far, but eventually I will be asked to stop. :)
I'm so pleased that you like it, it is bright and happy.

Bonjour Diane ,
La pluie réunit avec le soleil nous réservent des surprises, l'odeur après la pluie sur la terre nous envoie son parfum , heureusement qu'elle est là ,que serait notre belle planète sans elle.
Merci pour tes gentils commentaires, ça fait très plaisir.
Bonne journée.

Bonjour ma chère Françoise , oui la pluie est une bénédiction pour la terre, il n'y a rien de si beau que l'odeur fraîche dans l'air quand il a plu.
Je vous remercie de votre visite et beau message.
Bonne journée

dianne said...

Thanks dear /t.
yes it is a rainy day in France, I like the first verse where the rain surprises and they open up their umbrellas together as if in a dance.
It is a very nice song.
