A stroll to a favorite bathing spot turns into a lament for lost love and a meditation on what-might-have-been. With a haunting melody.
A “spinning” song of a different kind (i.e., it has nothing to do with spinning thread). A good song for increasing your monastic vocabulary.
Canada’s national anthem in its original form. A good deal less bloody than la Marseillaise, and much easier to sing than O Say, Can You See.
A sad sea song with a soothing melody. Began as French but now is widely known in French-speaking Canada as well.
A French song that is nonetheless dear to the heart of all Canadians, particularly if they are expatriates. If it does not bring a tear to your eye, you have a hard heart.
