Indila

24 Mar

Today’s musical offering is another French song that I’ve been singing constantly. “Dernière Danse (Last Dance)” is a wry commentary on being an outsider in France. While Indila was born in Paris, she has Algerian, Cambodian, Egyptian, and Indian ancestry and the life she sings about isn’t rosy.  The song starts off with the line “Oh ma douce souffrance (Oh my sweet suffering)” and just keeps going from there.  It’s a clever play on the patriotic song, “Douce France”.  This song is currently at the top of the charts, it’s catchy as all get out, and it’s fun to sing. What else could you ask for?
