“Um, nah, it’s okay. We got it.” was his reply. I assured him it would be to my enjoyment and he assured me right back that my help was not only unneeded but unwanted (in only slightly kinder words.) Meaning, he and his roommate were going to have some quality beer drinking, grunting, burping, and spitting time; no place for a gal like myself. Instead, I reluctantly returned home in my ready-to-paint outfit, darling Geraldine Doyle hair band ‘n all, and comforted myself with a bowl of mint-chip ice cream and fun French music. Tisk, tisk, those boys!
But you shall reap the benefit. Here are a few songs, so fun and lovely, they make it impossible not to feel quite splendid while listening to them:
*So Nice (Summer Samba) - Astrud Gilberto
*Samba De Mon Coeur Qui Bat - Coralie Clement
*Que Reste-T’il De Nos Amour - Charles Trenet
*Assedic - Les Escrocs
*Je Cherche Un Homme - Eartha Kitt
*C’est Si Bon - Eartha Kitt
*Brazil - Django Reinhardt
*La Vie En Rose - Louis Armstrong
*Remember Me - Heitor Pereira
These songs are actually all from the movie “Something’s Gotta Give.” It seems I am the only person that loves that movie. Most people laugh at me when I share that nugget of info. Still, it currently holds a spot on my Christmas list.
