Steph you beat me to it!

It's a bit of our youth that went with Michel Delpech.

That's it then. 2016 is on its way, for better or for worse.

Quand j'étais chanteur

Funny - In this last song, he says "I'm 73" - he died 4 years before he reached that age! Very Sad

I like "Les divorcés" - a guy talking to soon-to-be-ex wife about how life will go on, and how they will organize themselves (apartment, child custody, etc.) A poignant song.

This is a great video of it, though the translation leaves a bit to be desired. But one gets the idea. The pics are great.

I heard the news on the radio last night. Sad

His wife and daughter say he was battling cancer and was happy he made it through December. He made it two days into January.

One of my favorite songs is "Pour un flirt avec toi" Music Lalalalalalalalala Music

A humourous version:

Here's a lesser-known duet. Michel Delpech with Françoise Hardy, singing "L'Amitié" (Friendship)

An appropriate Goodbye song: The end of the road.

https://youtu.be/g2xRB4eDE9s



"The end of my road on Earth", he sings. Bon voyage, Michel! Sad

As a photographer, I'm a fan of Cartier Bresson. Delpech wrote this song about him.
