Anyone what to share a song or two with me they like/love from 1964?

  1. Some great songs here William. A lot more familiar songs than from some of the other years. Gloria is my favourite, but there are so many good ones.

    Your selections of French pop songs is very interesting. One I’ve been hearing lately from 1964 is Brigitte Bardot’s Moi Je Joue which I heard as the theme song for a Greek TV comedy series, and which I can’t get out of my head now.

    The English translation of the song is:

    Me I play ,
    Me I play cheek-to-cheek
    I want to play taking aim at you
    But you , do you want it ?
    From all my heart
    I want to win at this heart-to-heart
    You know my game by heart
    So defend yourself

    But the French sounds better.

    Cheers. P

    1. I do love a lot of 60’s French pop songs, it’s amazing there is not more really! I think got a couple of BB songs but maybe she should have more really? Moi Je Joue is another good one! 🙂
