Bonjour 2021!

Now playing on my French song playlist:

Title: La Java bleue

Songwriters: Géo Koger, Noël Renard, Vincent Scotto

Performed by: Fréhel

Thanks to Don of Operas and cycling, and travel for suggesting this French song for my playlist. Did you know there’s a square in Paris named after the singer, Fréhel? Read more about it in Don’s post: Belleville!

Lyrics I like:

C’est la java bleue

La java la plus belle

Celle qui ensorcelle

Et que l’on danse les yeux dans les yeux


It’s the blue Java (a type of fast waltz)

The most beautiful Java

The one which enchants

And which we dance eye to eye

I like to listen to songs en français, so I won’t forget the French I learned in school! Are you studying French? I hope you’ll find this series entertaining and helpful, too!

Got a French song I should add to my playlist? Let me know in the comments below!
