This is the perfect time to repost this, November Song, which happens to be my biggest hit on YouTube - 182,141 hits as of one minute ago. win

Since it is in French, I thought I'd give non-French speaking members a translation, so they can follow the lyrics and pictures - and see why my version is such a success. You can also compare with other versions. Mine is indubitably the best, says she modestly. Very Happy

Music Qu'on me laisse à mes souvenirs,
Qu'on me laisse à mes amours mortes,
Il est temps de fermer la porte,
Il se fait temps d'aller dormir
Je n'étais pas toujours bien mise
J'avais les cheveux dans les yeux
Mais c'est ainsi qu'il m'avait prise,
Je crois bien qu'il m'aimait un peu


Leave me to my memories
Leave me to my lost loves
It's time to close the door
It's time to go to sleep
I wasn't always well-dressed
My hair was blowing in my face
But that's the way he took me
I do believe he loved me a little


{Refrain:}
Il pleut
Sur le jardin, sur le rivage
Et si j'ai de l'eau dans les yeux
C'est qu'il me pleut
Sur le visage


(Chorus)
It's raining
On the garden, on the shore
And if there is water in my eyes
It's because the rain is falling on my face


Le vent du Nord qui s'amoncelle
S'amuse seul dans mes cheveux
Je n'étais pas toujours bien belle,
Mais je crois qu'il m'aimait un peu
Ma robe a toujours ses reprises
Et j'ai toujours les cheveux fous
Mais c'est ainsi qu'il m'avait prise,
Je crois que je l'aimais beaucoup


{Refrain}

The North wind that's blowing hard
Is the only one playing with my hair
I wasn't always very pretty
But I believe he loved me a little
My dress still has its darning patches
And my hair's still blowing wild
But that's the way he took me
I believe I loved him very much


(Chorus)
It's raining
On the garden, on the shore
And if there is water in my eyes
It's because the rain is falling on my face


Si j'ai fondu tant de chandelles
Depuis le temps qu'on ne s'est vus
Et si je lui reste fidèle,
A quoi me sert tant de vertu ?
Qu'on me laisse à mes amours mortes
Qu'on me laisse à mes souvenirs
Mais avant de fermer la porte,
Qu'on me laisse le temps d'en rire
Le temps d'essayer d'en sourire...


If I have burned so many candles
All the long time since we last were together
And if I've been faithful to him
What good does such virtue do me?
Leave me to my lost loves
Leave me to my memories
But before closing the door
Leave me time to laugh about it
Time to try to smile about it...


{Refrain}
Il pleut
Sur le jardin, sur le rivage
Et si j'ai de l'eau dans les yeux
C'est qu'il me pleut
Sur le visage
Music

(Chorus)
It's raining
On the garden, on the shore
And if there is water in my eyes
It's because the rain is falling on my face

That's a perfectly done vidéo, Wildflower! The pics are just right and the sync is impeccable. No wonder it's such a success. None of the other versions comes anywhere near. clap

Me too. But then I always liked Anne Vanderlove and thought she was unappreciated, or under-appreciated. She wrote some beautiful songs.

The number is up to 183,266 today. Over 1,000 hits in a few days isn't bad. It's more than most of the videos in the same "channel" have had in several years.

For example, "Mes beaux amours", by the same singer and the same poster on about the same date, only got 3,456 hits in the same length of time. Some other videos by the same poster, i.e. made with the same skill and talent, have less than 1,000 views. Go figure.
