Last weekend, I started re-watching “Emily in Paris” on Netflix. The first time I watched the series, I guess I was so focused on the classic Parisian sights, Emily’s chic attire, and her handsome suitors that I missed all the good music!

Thanks to a website called TuneFind (this is not an ad), I’ve learned the titles of the songs featured on the show.

Now I’ve got “Summer in Paris” by Bea Parks, Garo Nahoulakian, and Oliver Charles Horton on repeat. 🎶 It’s the song that plays about five minutes into the first episode showing Emily moving into her flat in Paris. The playful ditty is two minutes long and it’s helpful for anyone learning French, too – like Emily in Paris!

My favorite lyric is “a s’il vous plaît goes a long way.” So true!

Summer in Paris?

With the recent news of France easing travel restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers starting in May, it sounds like there is a chance to spend “summer in Paris” this year!

On April 20, 2021, however, the U.S. Department of State issued a “Do Not Travel” travel advisory for France “due to COVID-19. Exercise increased caution in France due to terrorism and civil unrest.”

Humph! 😤 This feels like getting invited to the coolest party, but your parents won’t let you go! (If you spend summer in Paris, send me a postcard, s’il vous plaît!) 😉

Stay well and be safe, everyone… and listen to “Summer in Paris”:
