Je voudrais du soleil vert
Des dentelles et des théières
Des photos de bord de mer
Dans mon jardin d'hiver

Je voudrais de la lumière
Comme en Nouvelle-Angleterre
Je veux changer d'atmosphère
Dans mon jardin d'hiver

Ma robe à fleurs sous la pluie de novembre
Des mains qui courent, je n'en peux plus de t'attendre
Les années passent, qu'il est loin l'âge tendre
Nul ne peut nous entendre

Je voudrais du Fred Astaire
Revoir un Latécoère
Je voudrais toujours te plaire
Dans mon jardin d'hiver

Je veux déjeuner par terre
Comme au long des golfes clairs
T'embrasser les yeux ouverts
Dans mon jardin d'hiver

Ma robe à fleurs sous la pluie de novembre
Des mains qui courent, je n'en peux plus de t'attendre
Les années passent, qu'il est loin l'âge tendre
Nul ne peut nous entendre

Fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.
LOL 🤣
Lovely.
Dang!

Have to, eh? Personally I liked it, but I don't insist that everyone else has to like it. Such an attitude is so quintessentialy... American. Or English.
Some of you don't like French people ? such a bad thing ...  

Lesson 1 : Luz Casal sing this song ... so if Luz Casal sang this song, you have to change your ears or your brain 

My Name is Trouble!
I am enjoying this chill vibe.

Hey this is an eclectic station, so I expect to hear all kinds of views - so be it. I'm British and chose to live in France for the fun that you're evidently not having, and to avoid just this kind of narrow-minded typically Anglo Saxon bigotry. Having said that, she is tres boffable
 I'm French, so does that entitle me to say it's typical French shite?  The singing is dull and flat, and this cover adds nothing to a very average original version.  French is a shite language for singing  anyway. 
That being said, Radio Paradise is still an amazing radio. Maybe the extremely high quality music in general is why some of us react so strongly when coming across what we perceive as shite music. Maybe we just don't get it.- and that's fine. 
Love to you all

Probably still a child or, musically underprivileged. Either way....can't say something nice, keep yer trap shut. Likely a commercial radio fan.
Who is Luka Philipsen and why should we care? And why do so many of these bluesy languid Euro-French ballads sound like they came from the same shop?

Well played sir!
Brings back many bittersweet memories from my time in France. So a solid 9 here.
Sounds like she is singing "these honey bears", then I think gummy bears, honey grahams, yummy.  Nice song

Served too many tables while this was playing in the background...

Still gave it a 5 because it is good.

Memories are so suggestive.

Nice song by the way, but I find the original by Henri Salvador even more sensual.

I don't understand what Keren's singing but God she sounds over-sedated. 
there is nothing in this.

If you look at Europe the young adults from the UK and the Netherlands have a bad reputation for partying hard and being very loud. Russians are the worst tourists to have in your hotel. They are often drunk and very bad behaving. (Sorry Russians)

But European's biggest travelers? That must be Japan. You see them everywere and they are a lot more common. But only on the hot spots. On more rural and more unknown places you mostly see just European tourists.
If you count in tourist divided by population I think Dutch people travel a lot. I bet they travel more than Amerikans.

 
re only losers use drugs..... So true!  
New Zealanders are probably the most travelled on a proportional basis.  Certainly among younger, more bohemian travellers.  In my day, the craziest most original (and still together) travellers were young Germans.  
 
Je voudrais!

lovin the lay back mix, and in French! BONUS! 
I spent my childhood close to Paris. I was in contact with the tourists at the tour eiffel, montmarte, champs élysées. The Americans always seemed to me as coming from another planet. Polite, smiling, relaxed and rich. "Gorgeous, so nice, so cute". As Parisians tend to be very rude, they looked something between naïves and hypocrites. 
It's only when I went to the US that I understood that you had a very different way of interacting.

Going in for a little self loathing? That is certainly a bad habit too many Americans indulge in.

How beautiful.  Music and song with no boundaries.

Actually, it's not well known at all - it's a myth.  In 2012, 113,431,943 Americans had valid passports - which is more than 35% of the total population.  Sadly, that is still a lower percentage than most other industrialized nations, but it's well above the 10% disinformation.  The 10% figure probably came from the approximate number of Americans who travel outside of North America in a given year.  This tune's pleasant and harmless enough; I'm surprised at all the discord it's caused in the comments.

 
I have traveled and lived in Europe.  In a typical conversation someone from there will point out how they hate all the American tourist who are everywhere.  Then, in the next minute they'll complain how Americans don't have passports.  Europe is many small countries and to travel from one to another a passport is required.  You dont need a passport to go from Ohio to New Mexico, or even Mexico or Canada.  Americans are by far the worlds biggest travelers
"Radio stations in France are required to play at least 40% of their songs in French, during prime hours. France's Pelchat amendmentto the 1994 Broadcasting Reform Act is the law which requires this." - From wikipedia.org

So you would expect a lot of good french music. In reality this is not the case (in my opinion). When you listen to a random french radiostation you quickly come aware of a sort of local simplistic style that has no quality to be able to sell across the border of France.

This song is pretty good though.

I was all prepared to buy the mp3 entire cd download, but as usual, after listening to the samples, I believe RP has found the one good tune from the collection. The rest were too "poppy" for my tastes. She should do more in this style. I suppose the sincerest form of positive comment is to buy the product. Well, at least I did buy this single.  Also it reminds me of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXoILGnHnvM
Gets a 7 from me. This seems the epitome of mood music—absolutely awful for certain moods and situations, absolutely perfect for others. I know, that can probably be said of most music, but certain songs have the power to seize your attention and wrench your brain into another state. This is not one of those, but it's very pretty and a good melding of voice and music.

The French language is beautiful...spoken or sung.
I really overdosed on some tracks from this album. Technically, it's pop, but so addictive.

I do understand it, which is quite a surprise as my French is pretty damn rusty these days, but she sings so clearly and slowly and enunciates ever word so clearly it's like a lesson in pronunciation :). Anyway, she's not singing anything consequential, just lazy Sunday afternoon-style lightweight sentiments. Just the sort of thing to listen to in a Left Bank café whilst sipping a Pernod and smoking a Gauloise. So smooooooooth :). 7 from the Nottingham jury.

As an American, were I to demonstrate a similar ignorance, as to that as demonstrated above, by blithely perpetuating ridiculous stereotypes about other nations or peoples, I would be well and rightly slammed for it on this board. I do not understand that there are those who feel it fine and dandy to insult Americans whenever they feel the urge. Is this attitude driven by some sort or petty resentment, cultural isolation, or just a poor education?
It's well known than only 10% of US citizens have a passport....hence this parochial mindset as expressed above. roughly the same amount which are non-theistic
Those are all what the statisticians call "independent variables." I don't have a passport, I don't speak French, I go to church almost every Sunday, you would probably consider me "parochial" (we'd have to sit down for a beer or two so's you could evaluate) -- and yet I could listen to this piece all day! I don't say that to brag about my broad-mindedness, but just to point out that whether someone likes this song or not is not a test of "parochialism" or "sophistication" -- it may not mean anything more than whether or not it's your cuppa. Keren is definitely my cuppa.
I'll have what she's having.

I like it. I have been to France twice and both times were in Strasbourg on the Rhine. I rode a motorcycle there once and remember it was totally foreign. Much more so than Germany. The other time I drove a car and really did not have time to get out and meet the people or see the sights.

Nice, but the original from Henri Salvador is better.

Smooooth - it just reeks of Gauloises, and drinking vin de pays at a cafe table on the Rive Gauche watching the world go by :) What I also like about her is that she sings slowly and clearly enough for me to understand her French, despite not having studied it in years :o)
