Okay, here's a question. I absolutely LOVE this song I've heard quite a few times on the radio. I think it's one of the top 40 type songs. Anyhow, I don't know the words, I don't know anything about it except for the tune and that it's a guy who sings it.

So I wonder if anyone can help me? I wrote it out in music notation, so for those of you who read music and might know this popular song, I would love to know the name of the singer and song. This is half of the chorus of the song, and it's quite distinctive when you hear it:

Mylène Farmer - C'est Une Belle Journée

Good Song... Doubt lots of people will want it unless they are french or understand french.

How about Mylène Farmer and Khaled's live version of Polnareff's "La Poupée qui fait non."

This might help, but then again, it might not

I heard "A sorta fairytale" (is that the correct title??) from Tori Amos' new album last night. I highly recommend that one.

And an all-time favourite of mine is the Naive Melody (This Must Be the Place) by the Talking Heads. Another funny one they do is "Don't Worry About the Government".

It's hardly a new song, but one of my all-time favorites is Nothing Else Matters by Metallica.

Sigh. I guess that means no one knows what song I was talking about.

Could you post it in a da-dee-da form? I might know it then.

Lima Bean - yes, that's the correct title. "a sorta fairytale" is supposedly going to get the pop radio push in the near future (whereas it's only getting Adult Contemporary as of now, in most markets.)

My favourite francophone track as of late is "Chante Encore" par Daniel Bélanger. I think it was a single earlier this year.

Although Tori's new album is getting all the spin time as of this week, last week I was really into the cover "I'll Be Around" on Joan Osborne's newest disc.

And Rufus Wainwright's "The Greek Song" is also excellent this week.

Sorry Michelle, I can read music but I can't listen to pop radio... conflict of interest. (or perhaps conflict of taste...)

Speaking of french singers, there's a great record out by a project called Rhume (record: "Jeu De Puissance"), which features the guy from Greenfield Main. The new J5 track "A Day At The Races" is also great (checkem out live if you have the opportunity), as well as a hooky number called "Shadows Fall" by British rookies The Coral.
