"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." Hemingway

I found this lovely picture while doing a random search on google for old photography. Below it is a clip from Edith Piaf's La Foule (The Crowd). I've included the one with the english subtitles so you won't be kept in the dark, but since it's such a sad song, I'd like you to look at the picture at the top when you are done watching the clip and imagine that the couple found each other later on a less crowded street. I love Edith Piaf's elegently raucous voice and the way she sways with the music at the end. Most modern singers would merely clutch the microphone and have their head down until the end of the song, but she acts like a real performer. C'est magnifique!
